Polk County Jail – Bail Hearings

The Polk County Jail in Bartow processes and holds people facing criminal charges. People in Lakeland, Winter Haven, Haines City and other places in Polk County accused of crimes may be held in this facility until they are released on bond, or bail. For many people, however, high bail can make getting out of jail before trial impossible.

The Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution bars excessive bail. In addition, the Florida Constitution and various Florida statutes have confirmed that defendants should be presumed the right to pretrial release. Under Florida’s Constitution, a defendant should be entitled to pretrial release under reasonable conditions unless any of the following are true.

  • Someone is charged with a capital offense.
  • Someone is charged with an offense punishable by life in prison.
  • The proof of guilt is evident or the presumption of guilt great.

You have a right to a bond hearing, in which your defense attorney can show the court why your bond is too high. If successful, you can have your bond lowered or you could even be released on your own recognizance (ROR) in certain situations. This can help you or a loved one get out of jail and begin planning a strong defense.
