Bail Bonds in Richmond Texas
Fort Bend County Magistrate Hearings
Some criminal charges are ineligible for pre-set bond amounts. Example: If charged with Assault/Family Violence you would not qualify for a preset bond. A Magistrate or Judge would be required to set the bond amount. Magistrate hearings occur daily at various times. This causes delays, sometimes even over night.
On view felony arrests must have a Magistrate set bond. The Fort Bend Jail Bonding Division is responsible for preparing the defendant docket. All files on the docket remain in the courtroom for the duration of the hearings. Once the files are returned to the Fort Bend Jail Bonding Division they must be updated. The clerks are now able to provide the required bonding information.
