If you or someone you care about is charged with an offense, and has been arrested or there is a warrant out for their arrest, you may need information about bonds:

A bond is an amount of money that can be paid in lieu of being held in jail pending trial. The amount of money is meant to guarantee good behavior and attendance in court while the case is pending. If the person out on bond fails to show up to court, gets a new charge, or violates conditions the judge gave them, the money may be forfeited and not returned.

​How is the bond amount set?

  • Judges tend to follow a set schedule based on the severity of the charge in determining bond. They also take into consideration criminal history, ability to afford bond, aggravating or mitigating facts in the case, and prior failures to attend court.

I can't afford bond, what do I do?

  • If you cannot afford the bond, but you can afford around 10% of the bond, a bail bond company can help finance the bond.
  • If you are unable to afford even 10%, or there is no bond, contact an attorney about setting a bond hearing.

I have no bond, what does that mean?

  • Everyone is constitutionally guaranteed a reasonable bond, except in a few circumstances: you are in jail on a life felony, a violation of probation, or you violated conditions of the bond.
  • By contacting an attorney, they may be able to have the Judge listen to evidence showing them why you should get a bond.


What happens at a bond hearing?

  • At a bond hearing, you are permitted to testify to your financial circumstances, your ability to attend court, and information that might persuade the judge that you should be released. Your attorney may also call witnesses, such as family members, to testify to their willingness to help bond you out, their financial position, and your character.
  • The state attorney will have the ability to question you regarding failure to show up to court, may present your criminal record to the judge, and could even bring alleged victims to testify.
  • After hearing all of the evidence, the judge may set a bond, lower a bond, or deny the motion.

What are conditions of bond?

  • The judge may give you rules to follow while out on bond until your case is resolved. Standard conditions include: no drugs, alcohol, or firearms, no new arrests, and not contacting the alleged victim.
  • Additionally, the judge may order conditions specific to the facts of your case, like: no contact with co-defendants, a curfew, drug testing, or checking in with a pre-trial services officer.
