Gilchrist County is found in northern Florida within the Big Bend and part of the Gainesville area. It’s centered in between Dixie, Alachua and Levy counties. Gilchrist was the last county formed in Florida (taken from what was previously the most western section of Alachua County back in 1925).
When someone you care about has been arrested in Florida, they must be booked into the jail with mugshots and fingerprints before a bail amount is set to allow their release while waiting for their court date. Once a bail amount is set, an indemnitor (the person who arranges a bond to be posted) can either arrange to pay the bail amount directly with the court or find a bail bondsman to post a bond for a portion of the full bail amount.
Anyone who is age 18 or over with a state ID or an official passport is allowed to bail someone out. Keep in mind that the indemnitor is responsible for making sure the defendant appears at all required court dates and abides by all release requirements. This role is very similar to a co-signor on a loan.
A bail bondsman provides a surety bond for an inmate’s release at a small portion of the full bail amount. In Florida, the cost for a state bail bond is 10% of the full bail amount and 15% for a federal bail bond. For example, if the bond amount is set at $5000, the state bond cost will be $500 and the federal bond cost will be $750. PLEASE NOTE: Any money paid to a bail bondsman is non-refundable.

Although Gilchrist is one of Florida’s counties with smaller populations and low crime rates, one of the area’s worst crimes was committed in 2018 in its county seat, Trenton. It happened in the spring when Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Sergeant Noel Ramirez and Deputy Taylor Fletcher Lindsey were having lunch at a local restaurant. Out of nowhere, a 59-year-old town resident, John Highnote, shot and killed both officers. One was killed instantly while the other was said to have still been breathing when nearby workers entered shortly after the incident.
Highnote allegedly left the scene and was later found dead in his truck which was parked. Suicide was suspected.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement reported, “Highnote was an angry man who hated law enforcement”. When searching the killer’s home, cameras and memory cards were discovered with more than 200 photos of the shooter with a handgun or rifle in his hands. Also found were written materials with hateful comments toward law enforcement, such as “Pigs and Leaches”, “All Cops are Evil”, and other remarks degrading officers who served his community.
During the investigation at Highnote’s property, guns, ammunition and other paraphernalia were found, including a shooting target with the words “Coward Cops” written on it. READ FULL NEWS REPORT
