Some offenses have a pre-set bond all others have to be set by a Judge, when there is not a pre-set bond that person will meet with Pre-Trial services within 24 hours of being booked in. Pre-Trial will interview the individuals and work with the local Judges to establish bonds.
When a person is incarcerated there are several ways for that individual to post a bond to secure their release. View a brief description of the different types of bonds:
Partially Secured - Has a monetary value and a percentage of that must be paid before release. The total amount and the percentage to be paid are both set by the Judge issuing the bond.
ROR Bond - Released on Own Recognizance, This bond requires an individual to sign stating they will return on their appointed court date and is not secured by any other means.
Surety Bond - a surety bond requires someone of the Judges choosing to sign, most commonly a spouse or parent. But does not require any money at the time of release, however, the bond does state a monetary amount and the signer assumes that burden if the court date is missed.
Unsecured Bond - Has a monetary amount assigned to it but does not require money at the time of release, this bond is much like a surety bond but can be signed by the person being released.
All bonds shall be paid at the courthouse during the hours of 8 to 4 Monday through Friday. Cash and surety bonds may be paid at the jail when the courthouse is not open.
All payments of bonds must be in cash only and you must have exact change.
All persons bonding out from jail will be charged a $50 booking fee.
