Bonding someone out of the Haralson County Jail
A criminal bond is a financial guarantee that the arrested person will appear in court on a specified date. A BOND IS NOT A FINE. The person you are posting the bond for must appear before a judge to answer criminal charges.
A fee of $20.00 is charged for every bond that is written by the jail. This fee may be paid in cash and is non-refundable.
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 Haralson County Jail depends on their charges. Most crimes, but not all crimes, are bondable offenses.
- Cash 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. Failure to appear at the appointed time will result in forfeiture of the bond amount and may result in a Bench Warrant ordered by the judge.
To sign a cash bond, you must bring a photo identification card and enough cash to cover the bond. The sheriff's office only accepts paper money (no change allowed), money order, or cashier’s check. The entire amount of the cash bond must be paid at the bonding office before the inmate is released.
- Surety Bond
When you use a Bail Bondsman for a surety bond, you will be required to pay a fee (usually equal to 10 to 15 percent of the bond amount) that will not be refunded. Only an approved bondsman may be used.
There are six bonding companies approved by Sheriff Williams:
- A-1 Bonding - 770-854-4172
- Ace Bonding - 770-570-2180
- Garner Bonding - 770-713-6668
- Miller Bonding - 770-646-5604
- Shelton Bonding - 770-834-6070
