Marion County holds a great deal of important Florida history within its rural communities. Horses became a large part of the area’s character in 1943 when a man by the name of Carl G. Rose opened the first horse farm in Ocala. Carl was an engineer who relocated from Indiana to the area for an employment position managing Florida’s first asphalt road project. Since that time, Marion county has been known for its thoroughbred farms, which have been responsible for breeding some of the world’s best racing horses.
Bail is money demanded by a judge in exchange for the release of a person who has been arrested while waiting for his or her court date.
If the person who has been arrested meets all requirements while out on bail and shows up as required for their court hearings, cash bail money is refundable minus court fees, prosecutor fees or any other fees demanded by the judicial system. However, if the defendant does not appear in court as scheduled or abide by the rules, the bail money will be forfeited.
More times than not, paying the full amount of bail to the courts to be released from jail is unattainable. Fortunately, there are surety bonds allowing arrestees to pay only a portion of the bail amount in order to be released. In order to obtain a surety bond, you simply contact a nearby local bail bondsman who is legally licensed in Florida. Typically, a bail bonds company charges 10% of the full bail amount for a state bond and 15% for a federal bond. Money paid to a bondsman is non-refundable.
The bail bond process is simple. Anyone of legal age (over 18) with a state I.D. or a valid passport is eligible to bond someone out of jail. This person is referred to as the indemnitor. You will apply for a bond and make a payment using a cash, credit or debit card. Payment options are available for bonds amounting to $10,000 or more. If you’re bond is under that amount and you still require payment arrangements, call or text a bondsman to tell him about your situation.
After the bail bond paperwork has been processed and payment has been made, it will take approximately two to twelve hours for the inmate to be released from jail. Although our bail bond agents post bond immediately upon payment, it is up to the jail administration to complete the release process.
