Indian River County is one of the most northern counties in South Florida. Back in 1930, there were only 6,724 people living in the county, but the area has seen a massive increase in new residents each new year since. By 2017, just under 149,000 people were counted living in Indian River with 5,486 arrests. Amazingly, the number of Indian River County arrests in 2017 was only a slight increase from 2005.
After someone has been arrested in Florida, they are taken to a local county jail. Upon arrival, the arrestee is booked with fingerprints, mugshots and a statement collected. Afterwards, if eligible for pretrial release, the defendant is offered a set bail amount in exchange for his release while waiting for his court date(s).
If the inmate has the financial means, he may pay the full bail amount directly to the court clerk. Once the defendant has appeared at all required court hearings, the bail amount is refundable minus any court fees. In most cases, inmates are not able to pay the full bail amount. That’s where bail bonds save the day.
Unlike the requirement of the court, a bail bondsman offers the defendant the ability to get out of jail for a small portion of the full bail amount with a surety bond. The surety bond (aka: bail bond) is a legal note that promises to pay the full bail amount if the defendant does not meet all pretrial requirements (i.e. attending all court dates and staying out of trouble).
In Florida, the cost for a bail bond is 10% of the full bail amount set by the court for a state bond and 15% for a federal bond. Any money paid to a bail bonds agent is non-refundable. For instance, if the full bail amount is $2,000, a state bond will cost $200 and a federal bond $300.
Anyone age 18 and over with a valid ID or passport is able to bail a pretrial inmate out of jail. This person is referred to as the indemnitor. The indemnitor is very similar to a co-signor on a loan. With bail, the responsible party is to help make sure the person who was arrested makes it to all required court dates and abides by all pretrial release requirements.
