Lafayette County is found along Florida’s Big Bend which is just below the Panhandle. It is nestled in between Taylor, Suwannee and Dixie counties. It is another great area to visit to enjoy the outdoors and to get a look at some of Florida’s historical landmarks.
Residents and visitors enjoy fishing, canoeing, swimming, scuba diving and snorkeling in the Suwannee River. There are also some great spots for hiking, bicycling, camping and more at Lafayette Blue Springs State Park and Troy Spring State Park.
After someone is arrested, he is taken to the county jail. Upon arrival, the arrestee is fingerprinted, a mugshot is taken, and he is asked to give a statement regarding his arrest. If the suspect is eligible, a magistrate judge will set a bail amount for pretrial release. In the state of Florida, many counties use a uniform bond schedule which provides a suggested bail amount based on the type of crime committed and the inmate’s criminal history.
Once a bail amount has been set, the inmate has the option to pay the full amount of bail to the court or to find a bondsman who will issue a surety bond for only a small portion of the bail amount. Bail paid to the clerk of the courts directly is refundable minus any court fees if the defendant shows up for all court dates and abides by all pretrial release requirements.
Florida bondsmen charge 10% of the full bond amount for a state bond and 15% for a federal bond. For example, if the bail amount has been set at $5000, the cost for a state bond will be $500 and the cost for a federal bond will be $750. PLEASE NOTE: Any money paid to a bondsman is called a ‘bail premium’ and is not refundable.
Anyone age 18 or older with a valid state ID or official passport is eligible to bail someone out in Florida. The person who bails someone out of jail is called the ‘indemnitor’. This is very similar to a co-signor on a loan. The indemnitor is responsible for helping to make sure the defendant appears for all their court dates and abides by all pretrial release requirements.
Once a bond has been posted at the jail by the bail bondsman, it typically takes between two and twelve hours for the jail administration to finish the process and release an inmate. Reliable bondsmen will issue the bond as soon as the bail bond application has been completed and the payment has been made.
