Florida VINE

The Florida VINE system is a service through which victims of crime can search for information regarding the custody status of their offender, and to register to receive phone calls and e-mail notifications when the offender’s custody status changes. 

This service is provided to assist Victims of Crime who have a right to know about their offender's custody status. Click this link to register.

Inmates being held for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Florida Department of Corrections (DOC), or charges from other counties will not be found by going to the VINE Link above. You will have to call the jail.

Bonding someone out of the Clay County Jail

The method of bonding someone out of the Clay County Jail depends on the charges. A bond must be paid in full and posted as a cash bond or surety bond. A cash bond is when the amount is paid in full by cash, debit, or credit card by the inmate or family/friend. A surety bond is when a Bail Bondsman pays the bond, and you pay a percentage as a fee.

When you pay a cash bond, it is refunded to you when all court appearances have been made and the case is discharged. When you use a Bail Bondsman for a surety bond, you will not get a refund.
