There are three ways to post a bond for someone in jail:

  1. PROPERTY BOND: When posting a property bond. You must go to the Tax Assessor Office and get a description of the property you will be using to post the bond, you also need to tell them the amount of the bond. That way they will know if you have enough property to cover the bond. Once you get that paper work, you need to bring it to the Clerk of Courts Office they can check the property for any judgments on the property. Once these 2 steps have been completed, bring the paper work to the Jail.
  2. CASH BOND: When posting a cash bond you must put up the whole amount of the bond in cash.
  3. SURETY BOND: Is when a bondsman post the bond to get the inmate out of jail. You have to pay the bondsman 12% of the bond amount, plus any of fees they charge.

All bonds have a $30.00 fee to cover the paper work.
