When incarcerated there are several ways to post bonds securing release. The different types of bonds and a brief description are listed below.

(1) Cash Bond  - The full amount of bail is paid to the court to be forfeited should you fail to appear as required by the Court.

 

(2) Personal Recognizance Bond – Your personal recognizance, provided that you promise to appear at all scheduled hearings, trials, or otherwise as required by the Court.  This bond requires an individual to sign stating they will return on their appointed court date and is not secured by any other means.

 

(3) 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 and forfeits the monetary amount if the court date is missed.

 

(4) Unsecured Bond – Has a monetary amount assigned to it but does not require money at the time of release and the signer assumes the burden and forfeits the monetary amount if the court date is missed.  This bond is much like a Surety Bond but can be signed by the person being released.

 

(5) Partially Secured/10-Percented – Has a monetary value and a percentage that must be paid before release. The total amount and the percentage to be paid are both set by the Judge issuing the bond.  10% of the deposit (but not less than $5) will be retained if you are found guilty and the court determines you have performed the conditions of your release.  The entire cash bond will be forfeited should you fail to appear as required by the Court.

 

(6) Stocks, Bonds, and Property Bonds are only available at the court house.  This type of bond has a monetary value and is allowed to be secured through the use of owned property and can only be done at the courthouse.  If you fail to appear as required by the Court, the state will foreclose on the property used as security.

 

(7) Pay or Stay – This type of bond gives you a choice, if fines or Court ordered bonds can be paid, you may do so immediately, or when the funds are available.  If the bond is not paid, time in jail must be served.

 

Bonds can be paid at the court house during normal business hours 0800 – 1600 hours.  After hours bonds can be paid anytime at the facility.  There is a $25 dollar court fee and $ 5 dollar jail fee for bonds paid at the facility.
