I see that Sec. 293. [8 U.S.C. 1363] Of the IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY ACT, it provides that the government pay 3 percent interest on bonds per year.
But in a criminal case in Texas, I can't find where the state must pay interest on appearance bonds in misdemenor cases there. Does it depend on the type of crime? Or is it normal for the state to not pay any interest while it uses your money while you await trial? In some cases 3 or 4 years.
