Pinellas County, Florida is part of the metropolitan area that includes Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater. As a matter of fact, until 1912, the area was known as West Hillsborough, as it was part of Hillsborough County at the time. Pinellas is among the most populated counties in the state. The largest city in the county is St. Petersburg, which also takes the prize for the highest crime rate. In 2017, there were more than 36,000 arrests in Pinellas County.
Pinellas holds a great deal of history within its boundaries, especially in Bayview, which was used as a shipping port for cattle in the early to mid 1800s. At that time, Bayview was a small settlement inhabited by Seminole Indians, but also by early American settlers. Needless to say, the combination of the two resulted in destruction and violence.
When most people get a call to bail someone out of jail, it’s common to go into a state of panic. No one wants to think of someone they care about being handcuffed and taken to jail, but it makes the situation worse when that person has absolutely no idea on how to bail someone out of jail. The bail application process is not difficult. However, if the magistrate judge sets bail at high amount, this can create a bit of difficulty. The ability to get a bail bond does help to bring the cost for inmate release down significantly though.
A bail bondsman charges what is called a ‘bail premium’. The premium for state crimes is 10% of the full bond amount and 15% for federal crimes. Any fees paid to a bail bond agent are non-refundable.
Anyone with a valid ID or passport who is age 18 or over can bail an inmate out of jail. The person who applies for a bail bond or pays for bail to the court directly is referred to as the ‘indemnitor’. This person is very similar to a co-signor on a loan. The indemnitor is responsible for making sure the defendant appears at all required court hearings until the case is resolved.

By 1979, a local newspaper published an article informing the Bayview community about some of the local residents who were involved in a drug operation. Local officials discovered 10 tons of marijuana was shipped to the port and then loaded onto several smaller boats for distribution and selling. The bust led to twenty-five arrests in Bayview, but only two were charged. All were local residents.
