When a person is incarcerated there are several ways for that individual to post a bond to secure their release. The different types of bonds and a brief description are listed below.
   
  OR Bond - Own Recognizance, This bond requires an individual to sign stating they will return on their appointed court date and is not secured by any other means.
  Surety Bond - a surety bond requires someone of the Judges choosing to sign, most commonly a spouse or parent. But does not require any money at the time of release, however the bond does state a monetary amount and the signer assumes that burden if the court date is missed.
  Unsecured Bond – Has a monetary amount assigned to it but does not require money at the time of release, this bond is much like a surety bond but can be signed by the person being released.
  Partially Secured – Has a monetary value and a percentage of that must be paid before release. The total amount and the percentage to be paid are both set by the Judge issuing the bond.
  Property Bond – This type of bond has a monetary value and is allowed to be secured through the use of owned property. This can only be done at the courthouse.
All bonds shall be paid at the courthouse during the hours of 8-4 Monday thorough Friday. Cash and surety bonds may be paid at the jail when the courthouse is not open and if under $10,000.

All payments of bonds must be in cash only and you must have exact change.

All persons bonding out from jail will be charged $5 Jail bond fee and $25 clerk filing fee.

Some offenses have a pre-set bond all others have to be set by a Judge, when there is not a pre-set bond that person will meet with Pre-Trial services within 12 hours of being booked in. Pre-Trial will interview the individuals and work with the local Judges to establish bonds. Jails do-not set Bonds.
