Ohio Bail Bonds

Ideally situated between the American Midwest and the Northeast, the State of Ohio is a major economic player in the US. Ohio sits within a day’s drive of nearly 70% of the United States and has one of the largest highway systems in the country, as well as major water ports along the coast of Lake Erie. Ohio was ranked as the number two best state in the country for its business climate in 2010 from Site Selection Magazine and has won three consecutive Governor’s Cup awards from the magazine, based on business growth and developments. 

The more than eleven million people of Ohio have a variety of big cities, small towns, and rural areas to choose to live. The major population centers are located near the cities of Cincinnati, Columbus, and Cleveland, with smaller cities and towns spread across the state. While Ohio can credit manufacturing as it’s largest source of employment, Ohio is also the leading producer of soybeans and corn in the country. This mix of city and country lifestyle makes Ohio the ideal home for a variety of people who are happy to call themselves residents of the Buckeye State.

Ohio – The Buckeye State

Ohio is called the Buckeye State because of the large number of Ohio Buckeye trees that grow there. The Ohio Buckeye has been the official state tree since 1953 and grows in abundance along the rivers and streams of Ohio. Residents of Ohio have referred to themselves as “buckeyes” since Ohioan William Henry Harrison ran for and won the presidency in 1840. Brutus Buckeye is the mascot for Ohio State University, his costume modeled after the shape and coloring of the buckeye nut.

While Buckeye nuts are mildly toxic when raw, they can be eaten once they are removed from their shells and cooked. Native Americans ate buckeyes by roasting them and mashing them into a paste similar to peanut butter. And, speaking of peanut butter, the VERY edible buckeye candy is made from coating a peanut butter center in dark chocolate, while leaving a bit of the peanut butter showing. This results in a candy that looks similar to the buckeye nut but totally delicious.

Cities In Ohio

The major cities in Ohio are Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Toledo, Akron, and Dayton. There are another 164 cities in the state with fewer than 100,000 people each.

What is Bail?

Bail is a procedure, used by the State, for the purpose of allowing an individual to be released from jail until his or her case can be completed. The person arrested is referred to as the “defendant.” The court requires cash bail to be deposited with the court to ensure that the defendant attends all required court appearances. Once the legal case against the defendant has been completed, the cash bail is refunded to the person who deposited it.

Who Can Pay Bail For A Defendant In Ohio?

Anyone can pay your bail to the court on your behalf. The person who makes the bail payment to the court is called the “depositor of bail.” This is the person to whom the money will be refunded once all of the terms of the pretrial release have been satisfied. Bail is often paid by someone other than the person who is arrested. The “defendant” is obligated to the “depositor of bail” to appear for all court proceedings and ensure that the depositor is able to reclaim whatever collateral they used to pay the bail.

If you don’t have anyone to pay your bail, call Mr. Nice Guy at (844) 400-BAIL. The licensed and experienced bail agent that work with Mr. Nice Guy can help you get out of jail in a hurry!

Immigration Bonds In Ohio

Immigration bonds are a type of Federal Bond that is held by the federal government during immigration court proceedings. The bond is the amount of money the US Government will hold to ensure that the defendant appears for all immigration court proceedings and that they follow the conditions of their bond.

There are four types of immigration bonds:

  • G1 – Delivery Bond. This is a bond conditioned upon the delivery of an Alien and is the most common type of bond. It is used to ensure that a person will comply with a deportation order. A delivery bond allows an individual the opportunity to spend time with friends and family, as well as consult with an immigration attorney, prior to his or her court hearing.
  • G2 – Public Safety Bond. This bond is to ensure that the alien will not become a public charge. In other words, it ensures that the government will be reimbursed if a bonded alien receives any public assistance.
  • G3 – Voluntary Departure Bond. This bond is conditioned upon the voluntary departure of an undocumented alien and is used to ensure that the person returns to his or her home country in compliance with the conditions of the court order. A voluntary departure bond allows a detainee the opportunity to leave the country voluntarily within a specified time frame and gives the individual a chance to spend some time with family, make arrangements for themselves, and to leave under less stressful, less hurried circumstances. However, if the person chooses not to leave the country as agreed, the bond is forfeit and the person subject to pursuit, incarceration, and forcible deportation.
  • G4 – Order of Supervision Bond. This bond ensures that the individual complies with all conditions of the order of supervision and that he or she surrenders for removal.

A Delivery Bond and Voluntary Departure Bond are the two most common types of immigration bonds.

The bond is held by the court to ensure that the defendant will appear for immigration hearings and leave the country if that is the determination of the immigration court. Once the immigration proceedings have ended, the immigration bond will be refunded to the person who paid it, however, the process to receive the refund can be lengthy. To avoid having your assets tied up in an immigration bond, you can use the services of a bond agent, such as Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds, to pay the Immigration Bond for you. Then, they can worry about the process for refund, instead of you.

This could mean an argument or altercation between you and a spouse, former spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend, or someone with whom you have a child.

The law in Ohio defines domestic violence as using physical force or making threats against an intimate partner. An intimate partner is anyone with whom you have or have had a romantic relationship and includes same-sex relationships. Situations which might be charged as battery in a non-relationship altercation will instead be charged with the more serious crime of domestic violence or domestic abuse if a relationship can be established between the parties.

If you have been arrested on domestic violence charges, you may not be given the option for bail until after a bail hearing. And, if you are given the option to bail out after a hearing, the bail amount can be quite high.
