Liberty County Jail

The Liberty County Jail is located in Hinesville, Georgia and is operated by the Liberty County Sheriff's Office. The function of this jail is to receive and process people who have been arrested by local law enforcement. 

When someone is arrested, they are given the opportunity to post bond and be released, or they are held until their case is disposed of by the courts. This jail is primarily a holding facility for men and women who have been arrested and a pre-trial facility to house persons who can't bond out and are awaiting their court date.

This jail houses individuals who have been sentenced to serve up to one year of confinement in a local setting, as well as those who've been sentenced for more serious crimes and are waiting for bed space to become available with the Georgia Department of Corrections.

Bonding someone out of the Liberty 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 Liberty 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.

Approved bonding companies in Liberty County are Fussell Bonding (912-368-6459), Tri-County Bonding (912-368-2444), and Smiley Bonding 912-977-2610.

  • Property Bond

If you are a resident of Liberty County, Georgia, you may be eligible to sign a property bond for someone in the Liberty County Jail. Before being approved you must meet the requirements listed below:

  • You must own property in Liberty County, Georgia.
  • The property you are putting up for bond must have a minimum value that is double the original bond amount, plus surcharges established by the state.
  • You must not have been convicted of a felony or have any felony criminal cases now pending against you in court.
  • The property being put up for bond must be in the name of the person or persons signing the bond.
  • If the property is in two or more names then all parties must agree to sign the bond and affidavit of ownership.
  • If one of the names listed as an owner has deceased a certified copy of the death certificate must be attached.
  • Cash and property will not be accepted as bond.
  • If delinquent taxes are owed on the property it will not be accepted as bond.
  • If you are already on another bond in this county and the case is still pending you may be rejected.
  • If the Sheriff of Liberty County feels that surety is not strong enough to get the defendant back to court or the property is not valued enough, other restrictions and requirements may be required before approval.
  • No corporation, mobile home, vehicle or business will be accepted as a bond.

Applications for property bonds are approved by the Sheriff of Liberty County or his designee between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:30 pm, Monday thru Friday. All property bonds require a signed Affidavit of Ownership Agreement and certified copy of property description from the Board of Tax Assessors in Liberty County.

Please note: Property bonds between $5,001.00 and $12,500.00 require a Title of Opinion Letter from an attorney that establishes property equity and identifies all lien holders. Property bonds in excess of $12,500.00 may require a Deed to Secure Debt to be recorded in the Clerk of Superior Court, Liberty County.
