What is a Bond?

A bond is the amount of money set by a judge for releasing a defendant from jail before his/her trial. There are three types of bonds: cash, surety, and personal.

What is a PR Bond?

A Personal Bond is a sworn agreement by the defendant that he/she will return to court as ordered and will comply with the conditions placed on his/her release. The full amount of the bond is not required at the time of release, but the defendant is required to pay an administrative fee of 3% of the bond.

How do I request a PR Bond?

You will automatically be considered for a PR bond by the Magistrate Judge if you are charged with a misdemeanor, you may or may not qualify.

An attorney may submit a request for release on a personal bond to the magistrate in misdemeanor cases.

For felony cases an attorney may submit a request to the assigned felony court judge.

Only a judge can approve release on a personal bond.

How do I pay the bond fee?

While in custody of the Williamson County Sheriff, a defendant may pay the administrative fee with a major credit card. The defendant should contact jail personnel for more details on payment while in custody.
