My loved is currently in jail and is being accused of committing a crime. Are they eligible for bail/bond?

Most likely yes. Under South Carolina law, the right to bail pending trial is guaranteed to all person unless they have been charged with capital cases or offenses punishable by life imprisonment.

Bond is tool used by courts to ensure that you will return to court by the trial date. The amount of the bond set depends on certain factors of the case.
