When a person is incarcerated there are several ways for that individual to post a bond to secure their release. The different types of bonds and a brief description are listed below.
|OR Bond - Own Recognizance, This bond requires an individual to sign stating they will return on their appointed court date and is not secured by any other means
|Surety Bond - a surety bond requires someone of the Judges choosing to sign, most commonly a spouse or parent. But does not require any money at the time of release, however the bond does state a monetary amount and the signer assumes that burden if the court date is missed.
|Unsecured Bond – Has a monetary amount assigned to it but does not require money at the time of release, this bond is much like a surety bond but can be signed by the person being released.
|Partially Secured – Has a monetary value and a percentage of that must be paid before release. The total amount and the percentage to be paid are both set by the Judge issuing the bond.
|Property Bond – This type of bond has a monetary value and is allowed to be secured through the use of owned property. This can only be done at the courthouse.
