Are You in Need of a Lincoln County Bail Bond?
After a loved one has been arrested in Lincoln County, you may be called upon to help them get released in the time leading up to a court date. In most cases, the judge will have established a bond which, when paid, enables your loved one to get out of jail for the duration. The amount of the bond is based on the severity of the charges the defendant is facing.
In Lincoln County, bonds are payable 24/7 at the Lincoln County Jail & Detention Center, or during operating hours at the Lincoln County Courthouse. Douglas County accepts bond payments in the form of cash, cashier’s check, or money order only. If you are a landowner, you may be able to use property as collateral.
How is Bail Determined in Lincoln?
After an arrest, a bail hearing will generally take place within 48 hours. At this hearing, a Lincoln County judge will have the option to set a bail amount. The bail bond serves as an incentive for the defendant to show up in court—it is a refundable sum of money that will be returned providing the defendant cooperates with the court. There are many factors that can influence the amount of the bail bond a judge sets, including:
- The nature of the infraction
- The defendant’s previous convictions
- Prior appearances in court after being admitted to bail
- Whether the defendant has a reliable support network
- Employment record
- Financial resources
- Character and mental state
- Ties within the community
As a general rule, more serious crimes and repeat offenses generate higher bonds, while first offenses and minor crimes are met with lower bonds.
