How to Handle Addison Bail Bonds an
What is the fastest way to get somebody released on Addison holds or charges?
The first thing to know is that Addison no longer uses their jail. They now book directly into the new Carrollton Jail located at 2001 E. Jackson Rd, Carrollton, TX 75006. The fastest way to bond someone out on an Addison arrest will usually be to go to the Carrollton online portal or lobby kiosk. Be advised, you can’t pay everything this way, they have maximum amounts and they charge a fairly steep convenience fee. They currently accept misdemeanor bonds for Collin and Denton but all Dallas County bonds must still be paid at the Dallas County Bond Desk at Lew Sterrett.
For class c misdemeanor holds (tickets), it’s often possible to post bonds or pay fines after the person is booked in but before having to wait for them to be arraigned. Once the agency is paid, they will send a release to the jail holding the person on their warrant. Do not try to pay online for a person in custody unless you are doing so through the Carrollton Portal.
City bonds or fines can usually be paid either at the holding jail or at the agency who issued the warrants. There are exceptions to the general rule. And please, except for paying through the Carrollton online portal, do not try to pay these anywhere else online as it may be impossible to have a release sent. (A release is proof from the agency who has the warrant or charges which says they are satisfied and the hold has been released. Receipts for payment will not work. Only a teletyped release will cause the jail holding the inmate to release that particular hold).
Note, the inmate may still have one or many other holds. Generally, a person cannot be released from custody until each hold has been cleared.
Also, generally, to pay anything you must first wait for the person to be fully booked. The jail can give estimates of how long book-in will take. (Tip: check online as often as you like but avoid bothering the jail more than once an hour for updates). Once booked in, you need to know where the charges are from, what they are, and how much the bond amounts are. It’s also good to get warrant numbers if you can. Have a pen ready to write down all the info if you get it by phone.
For county charges, you must typically wait for the person to be arraigned before posting bond. Notable exceptions are if the jail pre-sets bonds or an attorney files a writ at the county to have bonds set.
And it can get even more complex. Because of the complexity, the single best advice we can offer about jail release is to find an expert who can guide you through the process. As much as you may already know about bailing someone out, it only takes one missed detail to lose hours or even days of time for you and the person in jail.
Since many can’t afford the full amount of cash bonds, a common option is to hire an attorney or bail bondsman. They will charge a smaller amount, a premium, to post bonds for you. For bigger bonds, it’s typically 10%. For smaller bonds it’s more. And while cash bonds are often faster, they aren’t always better. Click here for pros and cons of cash versus surety bonds.
As stated above, while it’s nice to understand the basics, what really cuts the confusion is talking directly with an expert about the specifics of your jail release.
