Spanish term or phrase: Garantias Penales
This is from a Judgement from a Court in Ecuador. The entire expression reads: "Primera Sala de Garantias Penales de la Corte Provincial de Pichincha". I'm trying to figure out which type of Court [U.S. equivalent] they are referring to? Any input and translation will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Garantias Penales is the same as bail in the English system. It is a sum of money by which a person is bound to take responsibility for the appearance in court of another person or himself, forfeited if the person fails to appear.

Literally it would be: criminal warranty.

  -> Fianza = Garantia = warranty = bail. They are all synonyms and have the same meaning.
