Texas Code of Criminal Procedure

Art. Art. 11.24
One Committed in Default of Bail

Where a person has been committed to custody for failing to enter into bond, he is entitled to the writ of habeas corpus, if it be stated in the petition that there was no sufficient cause for requiring bail, or that the bail required is excessive. If the proof sustains the petition, it will entitle the party to be discharged, or have the bail reduced.
Acts 1965, 59th Leg., vol. 2, p. 317, ch. 722.
