Need a Writ Bond?  Need an Attorney Bond?

If you have a friend or a loved one that has been arrested in McKinney, Plano, Frisco, or some of the smaller municipalities in Collin County, the jail staff may have informed you that you need a writ bond or attorney bond. I can help you get the writ bond filed and have your friend or family member released from the jail.

What’s Happening?

To get out of jail a person first need to have a bond set, which is done by a judge. In larger counties, such as Dallas, the jails have 24-hour magistrate judges that set bonds as soon as the jail cells begin to fill. In Collin County, the judges set bonds only in the morning, not 24 hours a day. So, if a person is arrested for shoplifting in Frisco at 2 p.m., they have to wait until 9:00 a.m. to have a bond set. The only way to get someone out of jail in this situation is have an attorney file a writ bond. A writ bond will only set a bond on some misdemeanor cases.

What is a Writ Bond?

A writ bond (a writ of habeas corpus-meaning produce the body) is an instrument that will trigger an immediate cash bond for most misdemeanor arrests in Collin County where individuals have not had a bond set yet. The cash bonds will be $350 for Class B misdemeanors and $500 for Class A misdemeanors and all DWI misdemeanors.

Writ Bonds will work for release in most misdemeanor cases:

Class B Misdemeanors

Class A Misdemeanors

These are usually DWI, theft, and minor drug possession cases

Writ Bond will not work for the following cases:

Class C Misdemeanors—specifically traffic tickets

Felony cases

Family Violence

Assault
