BailCo Bail Bonds is unique compared to other bail bondsmen companies in that we actually have a physical main office in Manchester. Other than at our office, BailCo can assist you with your bail bond needs at two locations in Manchester: the Manchester Police Department and the Superior Court in GA 12 (Geographical Area 12).
You can post a bond at Manchester Police Department 24/7- they are always open. However, depending on when the defendant was arrested, they may be transported to the court if you do not act quick enough. If this happens, don't worry! The bond can still be posted at court; however, the bond amount can change (which may not be advantageous to your needs). If you need to post a bond at the Manchester Police Department please call us and our helpful staff will make arrangements for you. Typically, we will meet you at the front lobby of the police department to facilitate the posting of the bond.
GA 12's Superior Court is open from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Doors open at 8:30 A.M. Arraignments do not usually occur until 12 noon, but they can be later in the day. To post a bond at Manchester Court you must first wait for the arraignment to take place.
If you are arrested and do not post bond you will then appear in court on the next business day. If you are issued a summons, then you must appear at court on the date and time indicated on the summons. At the arraignment, the defendant is advised of several constitutional rights by the presiding judge and is required to enter a plea. Usually the defendant is advised to plea “not guilty,” after which the matter is set for a date for the pre-trial hearings.
During the arraignment, the judge will set bond. If you do not have a record and the case is not violent in nature, then most likely you will be released on a written promise to appear on all subsequent court dates.
However, a judge will sometimes order a bond with or without surety. If you fail to appear then your bond could be revoked, and you may be held in custody without bond. The judge may require a security bond; the defendant has the option of posting 7 to 10 percent (depending on size) of the bond with BailCo; as bondsman we assure the defendant’s appearance to court, and the defendant is released.
If a defendant is held in custody after arraignment, the judge must review the bond status after 45 days.
