BONDS

VERY IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT BONDS.

  1. Prior to posting a bond for anyone, please understand that it is very possible that you will NOT be refunded your money.
  2. The PAYOR will ONLY receive the bond money back if they sign as a SURETY on the bond.
  3. If the defendant FAILS TO APPEAR in court as scheduled, the bond CAN and/or WILL BE FORFEITED.
  4. Your bond money MAY be subject to SEIZURE by the court for payment of restitution and/or court costs, fines or public defender fees.  This can occur even though it was posted by someone else.
  5. If the defendant was arrested for NONPAYMENT of fines, ANY money posted as bond MAY be applied to the balance regardless of WHO posted the money.
  6. When a bond is posted, the STATE requires a $25.00 bond filing fee.  If this fee is not paid at the jail, it will be collected when the bond is released or set over by the court.
    • Also, this fee is separate from any fees that the JAIL collects for BOOKING.
  1. When posting a bond for release on payment of fines, the $25.00 bond filing must be paid at the time of RELEASE from the jail.  YOU NEED CORRECT CHANGE.
  2. The bond WILL be returned when the defendant’s case is completely disposed of in court, and ALL COSTS and FINES  are PAID IN FULL, or upon order of judge.

All persons booked INTO jail will be charged a:
            $30 Booking Fee - Every time booked in.
            $25 Bond Filing Fee - This fee is charged ONLY if a person must post a bond to be released from jail.

Bonds by definition:

When a person is incarcerated there are several ways for that individual to post a bond and secure their release.  The different types of bonds and a brief description are listed below.

 

OR Bond
Own Recognizance; This bond requires an individual to sign stating they will return on their appointed court date. It is NOT secured by any other means.

 

Surety Bond
A surety bond requires a third party signature…
(someone of the Judges choosing)…most commonly a spouse or parent.

Surety does NOT require any money at the time of release. However the bond does state a monetary amount.
The signer assumes that burden if the court date is missed.

 

 

Unsecured Bond
Has a monetary amount assigned to it.
It does NOT require money at the time of release.
This bond is much like a surety bond BUT it can be signed by the person being released.

 

 

Partially Secured
Has a monetary value.
A percentage of that must be paid PRIOR to being released.
The total AMOUNT & the Percentage to be paid are both set by the Judge issuing the bond.
When posting a 10% BOND, only 90% of the bond will be refunded.
UNLESS the defendant is found:
           NOT GUILTY of the charge.
           OR the case is DISMISSED.

 

 

Fully Secured  / Property Bond 
This type of bond has a monetary value.
It is allowed to be secured through the use of owned property.

FULLY SECURED Property Bonds are secured at the courthouse.

All payments of bonds must be in CASH. NO EXCEPTIONS.
YOU must have EXACT CHANGE. NO EXCEPTIONS. 

All persons booked INTO jail will be charged a:
            $30 Booking Fee. Every time booked in .
            $25 Bond Filing Fee. This fee is charged ONLY if a person must post a bond to be released from jail.

   

General Information:
Some offenses have a pre-set bond.
All others have to be set by a Judge.
Prior to seeing a judge the inmate will meet with Pre-Trial services within 24 hours of being booked in.
Pre-Trial interviews each inmate and works with the Judges to establish bonds.
