    Q: Post A Bond
    A: There are three types of bonds that can be posted:

    Cash Bond-To satisfy a cash bond one must post the exact amount of the bond (i.e. $5,000.00) $5,000.00 in cash must be posted. Once all court proceedings have been completed and the case is resolved, the $5000.00 is returned to the person that posted the bond. The Sheriff's Office must receive a letter from the District Attorney's Office authorizing the release of the funds.

    Property Bond-The placing of one's property as collateral in the full amount of a bond set by a judge. The procedure begins at the Assessor's Office for getting the assessment value of the property. Next a mortgage certificate must be secured from the Clerk of Court's Office, so that any outstanding mortgages can be reviewed by the Sheriff's Office to determine if there is adequate value for meeting the required collateral of the bond. Once approved by the Sheriff's office, the next step consists of having the mortgage recorded at the Clerk of Court's Office. Once all of the court proceedings have been completed and the case is resolved, the property owner is responsible for the cancellation of the mortgage. There is a $52.00 bonding fee for the first bond and a $42.00 bonding fee for every bond there-after that must be paid before release. The fees can be paid through the Sheriff's Business Office during normal business hours but no later that 4PM. The mortgage certificate must then be recorded with the Clerk prior to the 4:30PM Business Office closing hours.

    Bondsman Bond-When utilizing the services of a bondsman, the interested party must contact a bondsman of their choice. The bondsman's fee for the 16th Judicial District is 12% of the total bond set by the judge. This 12% is nonrefundable. There is a $52.00 bonding fee for the first bond and $42.00 bonding fee for every bond thereafter that must be paid before release.
