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 Wakulla County Detention Facility.

Bonding someone out of the Wakulla County Detention Facility

If an inmate has bondable charges, he or she can bond out at any time. A bond can be paid with or without a bail bond agent. 

The method (cash/surety) and amount of money needed for bonding someone out of the Wakulla County Detention Facility depends on their charges. Most crimes, but not all crimes, are bondable offenses.

To pay a cash bond, bring a cashier's check or money order for the full amount of the bond to the lobby of the detention center made payable to the Wakulla County Sheriff's Office.

When you pay a cash bond, it is refunded to you when all court appearances have been made and the case is discharged, dismissed, or a not guilty verdict rendered. If the arrestee fails to appear or is found guilty, the money will be forfeited. 

When you use a Bail Bondsman for a surety bond, you will not get a refund. Surety bonds in Wakulla County are only accepted from registered bail agents.
