The Clay County Bail Bonds Process:
Those arrested in Clay County are taken to the jail at Green Cove Springs where Roundtree Bonding is well known and well respected. When a defendant is picked-up on a warrant, a bond may have already been pre-set by the judge. But often many folks are arrested “on view”, which occurs when law enforcement believes a law has been broken. In Green Cove Springs usually defendants will be taken to a “First Appearance” hearing the morning after their arrest.
What is the first appearance hearing in Clay County?
During the first appearance hearing, the arrested person will be informed of the charges against them, and the judge will set the bond amount (if any). Also, the judge may decide if the defendant qualifies for a public defender. The judges options include letting the defendant go without having to post a bond, known as release on own recognizance (or ROR), or setting a monetary bond for each of the charges, or no bond, which means the defendant stays in jail for the time being. When a bond is set, cash can be posted at the jail in the full amount, or Roundtree Bonding Agency can be hired to post it. The bonding agency’s fee for this service is set by law at 10% of the full amount of the bond.
This fee is non-refundable. For more inforomation, read What is a first appearance hearing.
You can expect to be released in two to four hours after RBA submits the bond to the jail in Green Cove Springs.
An attorney can request a bond hearing, where a judge will reconsider the bond amount and may lower the bond or change it to an ROR release. And, if the bond fee is too high for you to pay all at once, RBA may be able to let you make payments.
When you are asked to “co-sign” on a bond, you should understand you are taking on the full bond liability, and are guaranteeing that the defendant is going to make each and every court appearance pending full resolution of the case. Take this decision carefully. For more info, checkwhat you should consider before co-signing on a bail bond.
