"The suspect was held without bail."
"The suspect was released without bail."
In the second sentence, does it mean the suspect was released without permission? Does "without bail" mean "not allowed out of jail"?
Bail is money deposited as a guarantee that one will show up for court on criminal charges when required.
If one is held without bail that means that the crime is too heinous or the risk of the suspect fleeing the state/country before his court date is too great that he is kept in prison until his court date.
If one is released without bail, that means the crime is so slight that the person is expected to show up for his court date without requiring bail.
