Uniform Bond Schedules in Florida

Ever wondered how bond amounts are chosen?

Most jurisdictions have a Uniform Bond Schedule which lays out the presumptive bond for the different degrees of criminal offenses.  The presumptive bond amounts can differ depending upon which circuit you are in.  For example, the presumptive bond on a second-degree misdemeanor in Polk County is $250.00 while in Sarasota County it is $120.00.

Following is a list of links for various bond schedules throughout our practice locations in Florida.

9th circuit (Osceola, Orange)

10th circuit (Polk, Highlands, Hardee)–Administrative Order 2-49.8

12th circuit (Desoto, Manatee, Sarasota)–Administrative Order 2010-6.3

13th circuit (Hillsborough)–Administrative Order S-2008-160
