Glades County was named after the Florida Everglades when it was established in 1921. This is a wonderful area for those who enjoy a community away from the busy city life. Outdoorsman are especially fond of the massive opportunity for fishing, hunting, camping and simply enjoying the great outdoors. It is one of the Florida counties situated around the famous Lake Okeechobee.
Moore Haven is the county seat and located along the southwest shoreline of Lake Okeechobee. Before the Great Miami Hurricane of 1926, Moore Haven was booming as it was a large supplier of cattle, fruit and vegetables.
Bail is the amount of money ordered by a magistrate judge for the release of an inmate which will allow the defendant to be released while waiting for his court date(s). Most counties in Florida use uniform bond schedules that provide a predetermined bail amount based on the type of crime the inmate has been accused of. A typical bail amount begins at $2000. If bail is paid directly to the court clerk and the defendant appears for all required court hearings and abides by all bail requirements, the bail (minus court fees) is refundable.
Not all inmates are eligible for bail to allow pretrial release. And in some cases, the defendant may be eligible for supervised release without monetary bail at all. However, keep in mind that often times, a supervised release (aka: SOR) will end up costing the defendant much more money over time than what he would have paid with a cash bond.
A bail bond is provided by a surety company through a state licensed bondsman. The bail bond agent provides the defendant (who is eligible for release) with the ability to be released from jail for a small portion of the full bail amount set by the court. For a state bond, the cost for a bondsman will be 10% and for a federal bond, 15%. For example, if bail was set at $5000, the bail bonds agent will arrange for the inmate’s release for $500 for a state crime and $750 for federal. Any money paid to the bondsman is non-refundable.
Helping a friend or family member with getting a bail bond is a simple process. Anyone age 18 or older with a valid ID or passport has the ability to apply for a bond on behalf of the defendant. This person is referred to as the ‘indemnitor’ and is very similar to a co-signor on a loan. The indemnitor will be responsible for helping to make sure the defendant appears at all required court hearings until the case is resolved.
