What factors are taken into consideration when the game decides whether you bust someone or fail to bust them?

I try to bust a fair bit, but as of late I've been getting a lot of fails. I generally stick to busting those only who are a lower level than myself, and with a jail time of no more than 3 hours... why am I failing so frequently?

When busting you want to find someone who is a lower level and preferably in jail for a failed bust themselves

Busting too often is a big reason. unless you're in a law firm then you can only bust around 3 people successfully with the 4th being a failure usually

the easiest people to bust are those who have failed busting someone out. so if you want a good chance to bust 3 people in a row stick with those.

higher levels and higher time in of course are harder to bust out.

crimes that are low like 'caught for stealing candy' is obviously easy like busting someone who failed busting.

if you bust too many people within a short time failure increases.

dexterity also helps with busting so maybe train your dexterity up a little bit pretty sure that helps with busts, not 100% sure though but if you dont got at least 100k dex then you might struggle a bit but i swear before i had at least 100k back in the day i struggled with busting

also there is some good law education courses that will make busting easier i think theres like 2 that help with busting

Just wanna add that patience is very important, too!
Wait for the right ones to bust, regardless how often you have to read that those player aint at jail anymore!
Cyberdudes userscript offers an option to do "quick busts", which means that you only have to click onto "bust", no more "do you really wanna...", so you will be in time much more often!

And finally I think to remember that the beginning at busting was pretty annoying, I just kept on trying because I got often told about its importance...

4k dexterity per hour of jail time. So if someone is in for 2 hours, then you'd need at least 8k dexterity to bust them. That's why people are suggesting you get ~ 100k dexterity - because then you'd pretty much be able to bust anyone and wont have to bother looking at how long they're in for.

If you fail a bust, wait until the next 15 minute tick before trying again - unless you're like me and just don't give a shit about fails

now that is really good info to know , i did bailing but stopped busting when i equaled success with fails lol

but as there are merits i will one day go back an do it all properly.

will have to bother training dex first which i pretty much have neglected to date

That can't be right. I have very low dex (<5k) and I have busted people who were in for 2-2.5 hours before.

When busting try to bust someone at your level or less. And remember people that have been caught busting are easier to bust. I personally wouldn't try to bust anymore than 3 in a row as you will most likely get caught! The more you bust in a short period of time, the higher the risk of getting caught! Try to wait about 15mins after a 2-3 busts before you attempt again.
Training Dexterity also plays a part when attempting to bust someone out of jail. You should have about 4k-5k Dexterity per hour of the person's jail time you're about to bust.
There are also education courses that you can complete to help you make successful busts.
Hope this helps

Fine do it your way. I'm sure your 19 busts are an excellent sample size for you to draw conclusions on who you can and can't bust reliably.

Good luck.

for me, 100k dex and the law bachelor combined has made it possible to bust just about anyone out of jail. i busted a level 79 out with 8 hours jail time. and then i got 4 more level 50-60s in a row. i usually can, but sometimes i get too ambitious and try for that 6th... then fail. i really need to stop doing that.
