Santa Rosa County is located just south of the Alabama state line and is one of the few places in Florida where alcohol was prohibited for many years after Prohibition was repealed in 1933. After eight appeal attempts to legalize alcohol within the county, in 2005 it finally became legal to purchase wine and liquor in Santa Rosa. Although this news was considered positive for the locals, the number of arrests for driving while intoxicated in Santa Rosa has only increased each year since the law was changed.
According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, there were just under 171,000 residents living in Santa Rosa County in 2017 and 6,851 arrests. Only 210 of the arrests were for violent crimes that year.

Not all crimes committed in Florida are eligible for bail and many of the counties in Florida have predetermined bond schedules for specific crimes. However, judges do have the ability to alter those bail amounts. Regardless, in order to be released from jail while awaiting a court date, an arrestee must pay either the full bail amount or purchase a surety bond from a state licensed bail bondsman. The ability to post bail is also contingent based on a defendant’s criminal history.
Bail bonds make it easier for someone who has been arrested to be released from jail. When you buy a bail bond from a surety bondsman, the cost is only a small fraction of the full bail amount ordered by the court. Typically, the cost for a bail bond (aka: ‘bail premium’) is 10 percent of the bail amount for state bonds and 15 percent for federal bonds.
If a defendant is able to pay the full set bail amount ordered by the court on his or her own, the bail amount is fully refundable as long as the arrestee shows up as required to their scheduled court date. However, bail premiums paid to a bail bondsman are non-refundable. Any collateral provided to the bail bondsman by the indemnitor will be returned after the defendant has met all of his or her requirements for the bond. This includes showing up to their scheduled court date.
A reliable bail bondsman will post the bond immediately upon the receipt of the completed application and payment. But after the bond has been issued, it will take approximately two to eight hours for the inmate to be released.
