Bail and Bondsman

The temporary release of an accused individual from jail while awaiting trial is done through bail. Bail is the money that pledged to the court and will be used to ensure that the defendant fulfills all of his court obligations during his trial. If he violates any of the conditions of his release, he forfeits the money.

A bondsman is a person in the business of acting as a surety on behalf of defendants who cannot afford to pay the bail on their own. He typically charges 10% of the bail amount as his fee. This cannot be refunded.

The La Porte County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a crash between a sport utility vehicle and a semi tractor-trailer that left five people, including children, seriously injured. The crash occurred at 7:00 PM (CST) at the intersection of SR 2 and 18th Street which is just west of the city of La Porte and in front of the La Porte County Fairgrounds. Two medical helicopters were called to assist the Scipio Township Fire department and La Porte County Emergency Medical Service which responded with three ambulances and several off duty personnel.

The preliminary investigation found that a white 2003 Mercury Mountaineer, occupied by five people, was traveling west on 18th and had stopped at the intersection of SR 2. After making the stop the Mercury Mountaineer pulled into the path of a blue 2018 International semi tractor-trailer that was traveling eastbound. The driver of the Mercury Mountaineer stated to sheriff’s deputies that she believed that the eastbound semi tractor-trailer had to stop at the intersection. Both drivers tested negative for alcohol consumption.

Memorial Med Flight responded to the scene while Lutheran Air responded to La Porte Hospital. SR 2 was closed for traffic while the patients were treated and transported as well as for the investigation. The highway was re-opened for travel at 8:30 PM. The names and ages of those involved in the crash are listed below.

The La Porte County Sheriff's Office is investigating a single vehicle crash that occurred Wednesday afternoon in northeastern La Porte County. Emergency responders were dispatched to US 20 at CR 750 E for the crash just after 3:00 PM ( CST) ( this is approximately one mile west of the town of New Carlisle and very near New Prairie High School ) Kankakee Township firefighters were the first to arrive at the scene and found that the driver of the only vehicle involved was deceased.

The driver was identified as 20-year-old Cody Strauch ( pronounced Stra oww ) Preliminary investigation by Deputy Kristina Wimmer found that a 2000 GMC Yukon was being driven by Cody Strauch was traveling west on US 20 and traveled off of the north side of the roadway and struck a tree in the yard of a residence in the 7400 E block US 20. After impacting the tree the vehicle spun off and into the yard approximately 30' from the tree. It is not known why the vehicle left the roadway. At the time of the crash the road surface was wet which may have been a factor in the crash. Deputies are also looking into speed being a factor as well.

The La Porte County Sheriff's Office was assisted at the scene by the New Carlisle Police, Indiana Department of Transportation, La Porte County Emergency Medical Service and the Kankakee Township Fire Department. US 20 was closed between the St. Joseph County Line and CR 700 E from the time of the crash until approximately 4:30 PM

LaPorte County Sheriff's Office warn drivers of increased traffic
enforcement through Thanksgiving

Millions of Americans will travel our nation's highways this Thanksgiving holiday to visit family and
friends. With more vehicles on the road, the chances of being involved in a crash increase greatly.
The LaPorte County Sheriff's Office is joining more than 230 local law-enforcement agencies across the state to spot violations to Indiana's seat belt and impaired driving laws. Through the weekend after
Thanksgiving, expect to see an increase in random patrols, saturation patrols and checkpoints. This
overtime enforcement is supported with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) funds administered by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI).
"Why are we advertising this enforcement blitz? To give drivers and their passengers fair warning and to make our roads as safe as possible," said Captain Mike Kellems. "Our officers live in the communities we serve and will be thankful this holiday if impaired-driving and unbuckled deaths never strike again."
New Portable Breath Tests
NHTSA and ICJI recently announced delivery of 1,759 portable breath tests to assist 150 Indiana law­
enforcement agencies in establishing probable cause when arresting drunk drivers.
The Alco-Sensor FSTs mouthpieces and gas canisters used to calibrate the readings were purchased with just over $750,000 in federal impaired-driving funds. The new devices include passive sniffers that can
sense alcohol in the air around a person or an open container. Over the coming year, an additional
$310,000 is budgeted to purchase 725 portable breath tests for Indiana State Police posts.
More information and list of recipient agencies is at
Safety PBT release.pdf.
It's the law
In every state, it is illegal to drive with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher. In Indiana, drivers under 21 with a BAC of .02 or higher are subject to fines and a license suspension for up to 1 year.
