You can post a bond at Milford Police Department 24/7 - they never close. However, depending on when the defendant was arrested they may be transported to the court if you do not act quick enough. If this is the case, don't worry-- the bond can still be posted at court, but the bond amount can change (which may not be advantageous to your needs). If you wish to post a bond at Milford 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. If you're in the area around lunch time, try the lobster roll at 7 Seas!
The operating hours of GA 22 are 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Doors open at 8:30 A.M. Arraignments do not usually occur until 12:00 P.M. but they can take place later in the day. If you need to post bond at the Superior court in GA 22 (Geographical Area 22) that means either the defendant has not posted bond at the police department or they were being held in jail. In the case of being transported directly from the police department, they will then appear in court on the next business day for their arraignment.
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. GA 22 is in the downtown part of Milford, so parking can be hard. The only available parking is on the street; plan ahead to ensure you can find a spot. Unlike most courts, the clerk's office is on the second floor.
During the arraignment, the judge will set bond. If they do not have a record and the case is not violent in nature, then most likely the defendant will be released on a written promise to appear on all subsequent court dates.
A judge will sometimes order a bond with or without surety. If the defendant fails to appear then their bond could be revoked, and they 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 bondsmen we assure the defendant’s appearance in court, and the defendant is released. If needed, you can do a payment plan. Click here to calculate the deposit amount for your bond.
If a defendant is held in custody after arraignment, the judge must review the bond status after 45 days.
