Calhoun County is located within the Florida Panhandle. It is sandwiched in below Jackson County and above Gulf County. If you enjoy hiking or just taking long walks in a scenic environment, you will utterly enjoy visiting Calhoun. The area is most popular for its 3.6 mile Green Bike Path in Blountstown, which is also the county seat.
The Green Bike Path has several access points that include the M&B Train Depot on Pear Street; Neal’s Landing on the Apalachicola River found at the end of River Street; and Sam Atkins Park located off of Silas Green Road. You will see different trail heads and parks and eventually find yourself at the Apalachicola River.
After a person is arrested in Florida and taken to jail, a bail amount is set by a magistrate judge if the inmate is eligible. Whether or not the defendant is granted bail will depend on the type of crime committed, as well as the defendant’s criminal history. Bail amounts vary, but usually start at around $1000.
Many Florida counties utilize uniform bond schedules which suggest a predetermined bail amount based on the crime committed. Even so, the judge has the ability to choose a different bail amount or deny bail entirely if he feels it necessary to protect the public.
Most people who are arrested are not able to pay the full amount of bail set by the courts. And most defendants are not able to access their funds while incarcerated anyhow. This is where a bail bondsman is helpful.
Bail bonds are available through state licensed bail bondsmen for a portion of the full bail amount set by the courts. Anyone age 18 or over with a valid state ID or official passport have the ability to bail someone out of jail in Florida. However, whoever acts as an indemnitor (person who bails someone out of jail) will be taking on the responsibility of making sure the inmate shows up for all required court dates and abides by all release requirements.
The cost for a bail bond is 10% of the full bail amount for a state bond and 15% for a federal bond. For example, if bail is set at $5000, the bail bond cost would be $500. If the bail is for a federal bond, the cost would be $750. PLEASE NOTE: Any money paid to a bail bondsman is non-refundable.
When a defendant who has been issued a bail bond does not appear for his court date(s), that is considered ‘forfeiting bail’ or ‘skipping bail’. In this type of situation, a warrant will most likely be issued for the defendant creating more havoc. If bail was paid directly to the court, the defendant will lose all money paid (including any collateral used). If a bail bond was used for his release, the bond will be revoked, any collateral used will be non-refundable and the bondsman will have a limited time to return the defendant to jail.
