What Is the time limit for jail release after a bond has been paid? What Is A bail bond hold?
When it comes to paying someone’s bail bond through a bail bondsman everyone wants to know if the release is quicker or how long it takes for the defendant to be released. When a defendant’s commercial bond also known as surety bond has been paid through a bail bondsman chances are very high that the defendant will be released quickly as long as there are no current holds on the defendant. But when it comes down to it there is no specific time when it comes to jail release. In the state of Indiana if you pay a bond with a licensed bail bondsman your chance is very high to be released quickly. In the state of Indiana if a defendant has a bond in the county that they are currently incarcerated in but has a hold for another county the bond must be paid in the county they are currently incarcerated in to be released to the other county to determine what their bail will be if not already listed.

Types of Defendant holds
Community Corrections - Community Corrections provides a sentencing alternative to being placed in jail or prison. We provide a means of supervising offenders while keeping the public safe. The sentencing a person could receive may be, Home Detention, Adult Day Reporting, or Community Service.
Immigration Holds - An ICE hold refers to a written request from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to a local jail or other law enforcement agency that has taken a person into custody after a lawful arrest. Customs Enforcement will screen the defendant to determine if they can remain in the United States.
Federal Hold - A federal hold is when the federal government has an interest in a person, potentially to bring charges against them. If a federal hold is in place when a person wants to post a bond on a state case, that would not be a good idea.
