Bail Bonds in Richmond Texas
Arrested in Fort Bend County
Being arrested can be an overwhelming experience. We understand the need to be bonded and released as soon as possible. However, the booking process is time consuming.
If arrested by a municipal police department, you may be taken to their station. There you will be booked into that jail temporarily before being transported to the Fort Bend County Jail in Richmond.
If arrested for tickets, a Class C misdemeanor, you may pay the fines or bond prior to being transported. If the offense is a Class B misdemeanor or greater, you will not be bondable until booked into the Fort Bend County Jail in Richmond.
Currently only the Bonding Division at the Sheriffs' Office can accept bonds for release. You must be booked in their jail before they can provide the required information to be typed on the bond. This may change in the future, but for now it is the only way.
Once transported, the booking procedures are repeated and the wait continues. Bonding Division must have the paperwork (packet), prior to accepting any bonds.
The process time varies depending on many factors. Shift changes, magistrate hearings and heavy work loads all play a role.
