Bonding someone out of the Bacon County Jail

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 Bacon County Jail depends on their charges. Most crimes, but not all crimes, are bondable offenses.

  • Cash/Property Bond

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. 

  • Surety Bond

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