When someone is arrested, bond amounts are determined by a schedule set by judges. Domestic related charges are not entitled to a bond until seen by a judge. If the arrest resulted from an outstanding warrant, the bond amount is set by the judge who signed the warrant. If the person arrested remains in custody long enough, the arrested will attend their first court appearance (Advisory Hearing). Approximately 50 to 60 inmates attend this hearing each day. The hearing can last from two to four hours. During this hearing, the judge may set a new bond amount or leave it the same.
Is the bond amount negotiable?
No. Deputies will set the bond amount, based on the order of the judges
