Seminole County is also referred to as ‘Orlando North’ and home to Seminole State College of Florida. The college is located in Sanford, which is also the county seat. Although Disney World, Universal or other great amusement parks are actually located in Orange County, Seminole has its own share of great places to visit.
Arrests in Seminole County for 2016 and 2017 averaged just under 16,000 with the City of Sanford in the lead. However, less than 700 of those arrests were from violent crimes for both years. A majority of the arrests were for larceny.

Bail is the money ordered by the courts in exchange for the release of someone who was arrested, but has not yet been proven guilty. Not all crimes committed are eligible for bail. For example, someone who has been accused of first-degree murder will not be allowed bail.
A bail bond is a surety bond provided by a state licensed bail bondsman which allows a person arrested for a misdemeanor or felony crime to pay a small percentage of the full bail amount to be released from jail while awaiting his or her court hearing.
The fee charged by a bondsman is called the ‘bail premium’. The amount of the bail premium varies depending upon the agent you choose to work with, but typically the cost is 10% of the bail amount for state bonds and 15% for federal bonds. That is how we do it here at Bail Bonds Now. For example, bail set by a judge here in Florida usually starts at around $1000 and will increase based on the severity of the crime. If bail is set at $1000, the bondsman’s fee will be $100.
If you are working with a reliable bonding agent, an inmate is usually released within six to twelve hours after the bail bond paperwork has been completed and the bail premium has been paid.
The answer is ‘yes’. If someone who has been released from jail on a bail bond and jumps bail (i.e. does not show up for the court hearing as agreed) or fails to comply with any other requirements for the bond, the bondsman has the right to revoke the bond. If this happens with a felony bond, the defendant will be taken back to jail.
