Depending on your case, bond is set at the jail during booking or during a first court appearance. Sometimes defendants charged with less serious crimes, such as misdemeanors, can post bond directly to the jail or court. For more serious crimes, a defendant will go before a judge during a first court appearance. This hearing, by law, takes place within the first 24 hours of an arrest.
