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 is 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. The files are returned and updated. The clerks are now able to provide the required bonding information and accept bonds.
