STANDING ORDER REGARDING BONDS ON IN JAIL CASES
Effective April 9, 2018

In cases where a defendant has been seen on first appearances and a bond has been set, the Clerk's office and the jail should automatically consider that the bond amount and conditions remain as set from the first appearances when a warrant is issued in a case filed electronically.

This will be the default situation, when there is no notation with regard to bond on the warrant, "Bond is as set."

There will be no need then for the judge to include a signature page note unless the court is modifying the bond amount or conditions that were previously set.

In every case, where there is a question as to what bond amount and/or conditions have been set, email or call the judge who signed the warrant.

Judge Ossmann
