Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the written permission of the court to allow an accused individual to remain free while awaiting trial. This is granted as long as the accused can promise his appearance in court whenever it is requested. For certain offenses, a monetary value is attached to the promise which may require the deposit or pledge of money or property to the court. If the accused does not keep his promise, then he loses the money or property.

A bondsman is an individual in the business of bailing defendants out of jail for a non-refundable fee equal to 10% of the bail amount. He does this by informing the court that payment of the entire bail amount will be made by him if the defendant misses a court date. Most defendants who hire a bondsman are those who are unable to come up with the money themselves.

In the state of Kentucky, commercial bail bond companies are not allowed to operate. Ky. Stat. § 431.510 (outlawing commercial bail bond industry); see Stephens v. Bonding Assoc. of Kentucky, 538 S.W.2d 580 (Ky 1976) (upholding statute). A bondsman operating out of state is only allowed to apprehend a fugitive who has fled to Kentucky if he has a warrant. Ky. Rev. Stat. § 440.270.

Whitley area targeted in phone scam -

The sheriff's department warns of another round of phone scams in the area. Recently an elderly Whitley County man was scammed out of approximately $4,000. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with scam tactics and, please, share the warning with your friends and family.

-These scams play on emotions, often stating that a loved one needs money electronically transferred or 'loaded' onto a prepaid debit card or gift card. These are preferred methods due to their difficulty to track or recover losses. A common practice via phone and email is to state that a loved one is in legal or medical trouble and therefore needs immediate financial assistance.

-Fear/intimidation may also be components, such as falsely identifying as an IRS official or otherwise alleging a debt must be paid. Please NOTE: the IRS will never request credit or debit card numbers over the phone or threaten to involve local law enforcement. In the comment section, we will provide a link to the IRS website specific to scams.

-If you have any reason to doubt the legitimacy of the caller, you can hang up and call the number listed on previously received mail or a verified website for that business or office.
