Uniform Bond Schedule in Pasco County, FL

One of the best ways to understand the criminal procedures unique to Pasco County, FL, and the cases heard in the New Port Richey courthouse and the Dade City Courthouse is to read the administrative orders related to criminal cases.

Bail Hearings at the Pasco County Jail

Individuals facing criminal prosecution in Pasco County will be detained at the Detention Center in Land O' Lakes, FL. Florida law requires anyone charged with a crime to be eligible for release before trial (often called "pretrial release") under reasonable conditions. Pre-trial release can only be denied in certain types of cases based on the nature of the charge, a violation of a bond condition including a new arrest, or a violation of probation. In all other cases, the defendant will be permitted to post bail or bond so that he or she can be released from custody while the case is pending.

The bail or bond can be forfeited if the defendant fails to appear in court for any scheduled court date after notice is provided. In some cases, the bond is set so high that the defendant cannot afford to post bond. In those cases, the person accused should hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to file a litigate a motion to reduce bond.

Any bail or bond that is set unreasonably high would violate provisions in the Constitution of the United States and the Florida Constitution that require a reasonable bond. Call the attorneys at the Sammis Law Firm to discuss the case and ways to get the bond amount lowered so that you can fight the case without remaining in custody while the case is pending. Being released from jail will give you a chance to return to your family and job while your attorney helps you fight for the best resolution in your case.


Bail Bond Determinations by Judges in Pasco County, FL

Like other counties in the State of Florida, Pasco County utilizes a uniform bond schedule that sets a standard bond amount for each charge. At first appearance after the arrest, the judge in Pasco County will rely on the uniform bond schedule to set the bail amount.

Judges in Pasco County and throughout Florida have a tremendous amount of discretion to set a bond amount. In fact, the judge can grant the defendant a release on his or her own recognizance (often called the ROR, OR or signature bond). In those cases, the defendant must only sign his name and promise to return to court without actually posting any money or property to secure the release.

A private attorney can investigate your circumstances and ties to the community so that you have the best chance of getting the lowest possible bond amount set in your case. We work hard to show the judge the reason why you are not a risk to miss a court date. We can help the judge understand your ties to the community, family living nearby, employment history, and lack of a criminal record or history of failing to appear in court.


IN THE CIRCUIT COURT, SIXTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT
IN AND FOR PASCO AND PINELLAS COUNTIES, FLORIDA

ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER NO. 2014-062 PA-CIR

RE: UNIFORM BOND SCHEDULE - PASCO COUNTY   

The uniform bond schedule is being amended in Pasco County to incorporate amendments to §903.046, Florida Statutes, adopted by the Legislature in House Bill 427, Chapter No. 2014-201, Laws of Florida. The Legislature determined that certain persons charged with crossing county lines to commit burglary should not be released on bond prior to first appearance. In accordance with Article V, section 2, Florida Constitution, Rule of Judicial Administration 2.215, and §43.26, Florida Statutes,

IT IS ORDERED:

1. All law enforcement agencies in Pasco County are urged to use a Notice to Appear, pursuant to Rule of Criminal Procedure 3.125, where permitted by law.

2. The Sheriff is hereby authorized to release any person on his or her own recognizance (ROR) who is in pre-trial status on a warrant from another jurisdiction and charged with an ordinance violation, misdemeanor, or an offense specified in Attachment A provided:

A. the Sheriff has sent written notice to the other jurisdiction that the inmate will be released pursuant to this Administrative Order if the inmate is not picked up within 72 hours from notification, excluding weekends and holidays,

B. the other jurisdiction has not picked up the inmate in accordance with the notification, and

C. the inmate is not subject to the provisions of §903.0351, Florida Statutes, or is not otherwise required by law to be held.

3. The Sheriff [for Pasco County] is hereby authorized to release any person on pre-trial status who is a member of the United States Armed Forces to the custody of MacDill Air Force Base unless the inmate is subject to the provisions of §903.0351, Florida Statutes, or unless the inmate is otherwise required by law to be held.

4. The following procedures are implemented for setting bond for defendants at those Pasco Counties receiving facilities housing defendants.

A. Arresting Officer – Function at Booking Desk

1. The arresting officer shall complete all information on the complaint affidavit, setting forth the statute number and the degree of the crime for which the defendant is charged, together with a short statement of the facts involved in the alleged crime.

2. The arresting officer shall specifically ask the defendant for his or her current residence address. The arresting officer shall not rely upon any identification furnished by the defendant, unless the defendant is unable to verbally advise the officer of the address. The name and address of the defendant shall be listed on the complaint affidavit.

3. The arresting officer shall leave the bond portion of the complaint affidavit blank, unless the defendant was arrested upon a warrant, in which case the bond set on the warrant shall be entered.

4. For any arrest which has been made based upon probable cause with no warrant involved and where the arresting officer possesses specific reason(s) to believe that a bond, in an amount higher or lower than the amount established pursuant to this Administrative Order should be set, the arresting officer may personally contact a judge and said judge may set a bond outside of the provisions of this Administrative Order. The arresting officer shall enter the amount of bond, as set by the judge, upon the complaint affidavit specifically annotating which judge approved the bond amount.

B. Booking Officer – Function

1. For the purposes of this Administrative Order, the term "booking officer" means the employee of the receiving facility who receives the prisoner from the arresting officer.

2. For persons charged with an ordinance violation or a first or second degree misdemeanor, the booking officer may issue a Notice to Appear (NTA) in accordance with Rule of Criminal Procedure 3.125 if the booking officer determines that there is a likelihood that the accused will appear as directed and the defendant is not otherwise required to be held.

3. The booking officer shall specifically ask the defendant to verify his or her current residence address. The booking officer shall not rely on any address listed on any identification in the possession of the defendant, unless the defendant is unable to verbalize his or her address.

4. If the arrest is based upon a warrant, the booking officer shall confirm that the bond on the warrant has been correctly placed on the complaint affidavit, and, if not, enter the bond amount set out in the warrant.

5. If the defendant is being booked by virtue of an arrest based on probable cause, the booking officer shall enter the bond amount on the complaint affidavit, in the space provided for that purpose.

6. With every defendant, the booking officer shall follow the recommended bond set forth by this Administrative Order for the particular degree of crime charged unless the booking officer determines

a. that a lower bond or ROR is more appropriate than the recommended bond in which case the booking officer may set the bond down to the lower end of the bond schedule, or

b. that a higher bond is more appropriate than the recommended bond based on the guidelines set forth in this Administrative Order in which case the booking officer may set a higher bond up to the maximum allowable pursuant to this Administrative Order. In order to increase the bond the booking officer must specifically set out, in writing on the booking advisory sheet one or more of the aggravating factors enumerated below; or

c. that the arresting officer has contacted a judge pursuant to A.4. above and a judge has authorized a bond different from this Order.

7. Aggravating factors which the booking officer is permitted to consider when an increase in the bond amount is contemplated are:

a. At the time of arrest, the defendant had committed more than one offense.

b. The defendant cannot provide a local address or a permanent place of residence in the Tampa Bay area.

c. The defendant has a prior criminal record.

d. The defendant is on probation, parole, community control or any other form of supervision.

e. There are outstanding warrants or holds for the defendant from this or any other jurisdiction.

f. The arresting officer or booking officer has reason to believe that should the defendant be released, bodily injury may be inflicted upon the alleged victim or another by the defendant.

g. The arresting officer or booking officer has reason to believe that should the defendant be released from custody, the defendant would not return to court when summoned.

If the booking officer finds aggravating factors (f) or (g), the basis for those aggravating factors should be stated in writing on the complaint advisory affidavit.

C. Range of Bond – Recommended Amount

For offenses added to the statutes subsequent to the date of this Order, these ranges of bonds will be used for the new offenses, unless otherwise provided in a subsequent administrative order.

8. Structured release of pre-trial detainees.
