Bail and Bondsman

If you are charged with a crime in Rhea County, you can stay out of jail while waiting for your trial to start. This is possible when the court grants you bail – an exchange of money or property that will serve as a form of collateral which is supposed to guarantee your return to court. If you miss a court date, the money or property is forfeited.

If you cannot afford to post bail, you can hire a bondsman to do it for you for a 10% fee. This fee is non-refundable. For example, if your bail is set at $10,000, you will need to pay the bondsman $1000.
