Union is the smallest county in Florida. It located in the north central part of the state and those who enjoy the simpler things in life will appreciate the area. It’s another ideal location for getting away from the busier city life and taking advantage of the great outdoors. Residents and visitors have the best of mother nature right here. Weekends and vacations are often spent here for boating, camping, fishing, kayaking, hunting (and more).
Lake Butler is the county seat in Union County. It is also the host of an annual bass fishing tournament that pulls in fishermen from all over the country each year.
Bail is the monetary amount required by the court system in exchange for the pretrial release of an inmate. The bail amount is set by the magistrate judge and used to ensure the defendant will show up for his court date. Not all inmates are eligible for bail. Defendants with a long criminal history are not guaranteed bail. Inmates with violent criminal allegations are not typically eligible for bail. Some Florida inmates will be eligible for release without a monetary bond. It’s important to note that often times, a defendant is better off to pay for a bond rather than accept supervised release.
If the full bail amount is paid directly to the court, this money is refundable minus any required court fees.
Bail bonds (aka: ‘surety bonds’) are written by state licensed bail bondsmen. Bail bonds are available to defendants for a small portion of the full set bail amount issued by the court. For a state bond, the cost for a bail bond is ten percent of the bail amount. Federal bonds are fifteen percent of the full bail amount. The money paid to a bail bondsman is also called a ‘bail premium’ and is non-refundable.
An indemnitor is the person who will apply for a bail bond on behalf of the defendant. The indemnitor can be anyone who is age 18 or over with a valid state ID or official passport. The indemnitor is similar to a co-signor for a loan and is responsible for making sure the arrestee shows up for his court date and abides by all other inmate release requirements.
The amount of time it takes to have an inmate released while awaiting trial varies. However, the average time is between two and twelve hours. Most reliable bail bond agents post a bond as soon as the application has been completed and payment has been made. But after the bond has been posted, the jail administration must complete the process.
