If a person is charged with a crime, such as a traffic violation, which has a cash fine, that person can be released from the center upon payment to the magistrate’s office or municipal court depending on who made the charge.  Persons charged with crimes classified as felonies normally have higher bonds. Most bonds set by the magistrate and municipal courts are surety bonds which requires the person to place property up as collateral. *Note: Each case or charge is different, therefore, the amount or type of bond depends upon the type of charge.
