What to expect when bonding in Levy County:
When a person is arrested on a warrant, they may be able to bond out right away, but often there is no bond on the warrant and they must see a judge the next day at a hearing called “First Appearance.” See What is a first appearance hearing for more info.
Most people incarcerated in Levy County, however, are arrested “on view,” where a law enforcement officer has reason to believe a crime has occurred. At the first appearance hearing, the judge will do these three things:
- Make sure the arrested person is aware of his charges.
- Determine if he qualifies for a public defender (and appoint one if he does qualify).
- Make a bond determination.
The judge’s options include:
- Releasing the defendant without posting a bond,
- Setting a monetary bond for each of his charges, or
- Keeping him in jail with no bond, which means obviously he’s not going anywhere.
If a monetary bond is set, this can be paid in cash at the jail, or a bail bond agent can be hired to post it. The bondsman’s fee is set by law at 10% of the face amount of the bond or bonds. This is a non-refundable fee.
In Bronson, once Roundtree Bonding has filed your bond with the jail, you can expect to be released in two hours or less.
If bond is denied, or if you think the bond set is too high, your attorney can request a bond hearing, where a judge will reconsider the bond and may lower the amounts or even change the bail to a recognizance release (where the defendant is released on their promise to appear). Also, in cases where the bond fee may be too high to pay all at once, Roundtree Bonding may be willing to set up a partial credit plan and let you make payments. Roundtree Bonding has the best reputation in Levy County for working with our clients.
What if I’m asked to “co-sign” on a bail bond?
Co-signing on a bail bond means that you are assuming full liability for the full amount of the bail bond, and you are guaranteeing to the bondsman (who is in turn guaranteeing to the courts) that the defendant will make each and every court appearance until his case is over. This responsibility should be taken very seriously. For more information on co-signing on a bail bond see our information page what you should know before co-signing on a bail bond.
If a friend or family member is being detained in the Levy County Jail, here are some things that you can do to speed up the Levy County Bail Bonds Process.
