Bail and Bail Bondsmen:  Three methods

  • Cash Bond – Pay the total amount of the bond at the clerk’s office, inside the courthouse.  Bring a copy of the receipt to the jail.  Bond money will be returned to you after sentencing in the case.  (The judge has the right to deduct court cost and fines from bond money).
  • Property Bond – Obtain a property assessment printout from the Revenue Commissioners office, inside the courthouse.  Bring the property assessment printout to the jail for review.  Property must be valued at the total amount of the bond or greater than the total amount of the bond.  More than one property assessment can be used to make a bond, in which case the property values will be added together.  All people listed on the property assessment must be present to sign the bond.
  • Bail Bondsman – The bonding company must be licensed in Franklin County.  Ten percent of the bond should be given to the bondsman.
