Hillsborough County was founded in 1834 and is one of the largest metropolitan areas in the state of Florida. It is familiar to most as ‘The Tampa Bay Area’. The county was named after Wills Hill, the Earl of Hillsborough. Hill had served as British Secretary of State for the Colonies between 1768 and 1772.
Hillsborough originally included more of the surrounding cities within its county domain. Yet, today many of those municipalities have been allocated to newer counties, such as Charlotte, DeSoto, Hardee, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sarasota.
The Tampa Bay Area is another top destination for residents and visitors in Florida with its beautiful beaches and many local attractions. Almost everyone enjoys visiting Busch Gardens Tampa Bay African-Themed Amusement park and zoo.
If you enjoy the outdoors, the Sunshine State has just about everything to offer. On Florida’s West Coast, Hillsborough River State Park is a short drive from downtown Tampa. Here you can enjoy fishing, camping, hiking, bicycling and more.
Bail is the amount of money demanded by a magistrate judge in exchange for the release of a pretrial defendant in county courts. The purpose of bail is to ensure those who are arrested show up for their court date(s). Not all inmates are eligible for pretrial release.
If the full bail amount set by the court is paid directly to the court clerk and the defendant abides by all pretrial release requirements (including showing up for all court dates and staying out of trouble), the bail amount is refundable minus any court fees.
A majority of those who are arrested do not have the finances to pay the full bail amount demanded by the magistrate judge. That is when you want to reach out to a local bail bondsman.
A bail bondsman helps those who have been arrested to be released from jail for just a small portion of the full bail amount set by a judge. After an indemnitor (the person who is applying for a bail bond) arranges a bond for the defendant’s release, the bondsman will submit a surety bond to the jail. The surety is a legal note promising the court that the bail bonds agency will pay the full bail amount if the defendant forfeits (skips bail).
In Florida, a bail bond costs 10% of the full bond amount for a state bond and 15% for a federal bond. As an example, if a judge sets bail at $5,000, the cost for a state bond will be $500 and a federal bond will cost $750. Unlike the bail paid directly to the court, any fees paid to a bail bond company is non-refundable.
