Frequently Asked Questions: Bonds
An inmate may be eligible for release on bond. There are four kinds of bonds:
CASH BOND: Requires the full amount of the bond in cash.
SURETY BOND: May be obtained from a professional bondsman who is licensed and usually charges a percentage fee. Check the yellow pages of the directory under BONDSMAN for a listing of the sureties. Our personnel cannot recommend a bondsman. Surety bonds shall be posted at the courthouse during the courts business hours. After court hours, surety bonds may be posted at the jail.
10% BOND: This bond is set by a Judge. 10% of the full amount of the bond may be paid in cash only. Surety bonds cannot be applied towards a 10% bond.
