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

All payments of bonds must be in cash only. All persons bonding will be charged jail fees and a bond fee totaling $125. This will be added to the bond. 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 12 hours of being booked into the jail. Pre-Trial will interview the inmate and work with the judge to set a bond.


(1) ROR Bond or OR Bonds – Return own recognizance. This bond requires an individual to sign stating they will return on their appointed court date.


(2) 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 other than the jail fees; however, the bond does state a monetary amount and the signer assumes that burden if the court date is missed.


(3) 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. Jail fees are to be paid.

(4) Cash Bond – has a monetary amount that must be paid in full (cash only) along with the jail fees before being released.

(5) Partially Secured – Has a monetary value and a percentage of that must be paid before release (cash only). The total amount and the percentage to be paid are both set by the Judge issuing the bond.


(6) Property Bond - This type of bond has a monetary value and is allowed to be secured through the use of property and or Stocks, Bonds. This can only be done at the courthouse of which the inmate is being housed for and the judge is the only one that can authorize a property bond.


(7) Supplement Conditions – The judge can add conditions to any bond. During the time the bond is in effect the person under the bond will need to abide by the conditions and the person signing as a surety can be held responsible to make sure the person abides by the conditions or less the bond money posted.


Any person signing a bond for another has the right to return the person the bond is for to the jail with a letter notorizing stating that they want to come off the bond. The person that the bond is for will be placed back in jail. The letter will be given to the judge and at the next court date the judge can return the money or release you as the surety on the bond.
