These amounts are set by judges based on several factors including established amounts based on the criminal code statutes, petitions by the District Attorney.
You can call the Jail (254-933-5400) or the District Clerk's Office (254-933-5200) to see if a bond has been set.
If a person has been arrested and a bond amount has been set, the person can be released if the bond is posted. The three primary ways to post a bond amount is to provide a full cash bond, use a bonding agency to post the bond, or post a Personal Bond.
Cash bonds are posted (paid) at the District Clerk's Office. Click here for directions. The District Clerk's Office is open Monday through Friday from 8 AM - 5 PM (except for holidays). The clerk will provide you with a receipt that can be taken down to the Jail and used to release a person from jail.
If the District Clerk's Office is closed, cash bonds can be posted at the jail.
|The money put up for a cash bond can be tied up in the court for months. At the end of a trial, the defendant's attorney should draft an order to release the funds. Only after a Judge signs this order will a check be written and mailed out.|
