Whenever someone is arrested and booked into the Trussville Municipal Jail on a misdemeanor offense they are given the opportunity to post a bond. The bond amount is determined by a bond schedule which is approved by the court. If they are charged with a Felony offense, they can not post bond until they are transferred to the Jefferson County Jail and Bail is set.
If you wish to post bond for a Trussville inmate charged with a misdemeanor offense, during regular business hours you should see one of the magistrates on duty. Their office is in the City Administrative offices located in the front of City Hall. After regular business hours, the Jailer on duty will take care of you. There are three methods to post bond:
- Property Bond: A person who owns real property and resides within Alabama may bring their tax receipt and deed to the Jail. All persons whose names appear on the deed must be present to sign the property bond. There is no exchange of money when posting a property bond. Should the defendant fail to appear in court, the Court will take action against the property owner for collection of the bond as well as any expenses incurred in the collection process.
- Cash Bond: A person may post a cash bond. This must be U.S. currency, or a valid money order payable to Trussville Municipal Court. You will be given a receipt in the name of the inmate for the bond you post. Upon disposition of the case, any portion of the bond remaining will be returned to the defendant. If the inmate fails to appear in court when scheduled the bond will be forfeited, and a warrant issued for their arrest. A new bond will be required upon their subsequent arrest.
- Bail Bondsman: A Bail Bonding company is a commercial endeavor by a company whose business is posting bonds for inmates. Bail Bonding Companies are not affiliated with the City of Trussville, however, they must be licensed with the City and approved by the Municipal Court to post bonds in Trussville. Bail Bonding Companies charge a percentage of the bond to perform this service. Those fees and the procedures will be discussed and explained to you by the bonding agent.
