If you are under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must accompany you.If you are unable to appear in court at the above days and times, you can post the bond amount, in cash, at the front counter and be given a new court date to be seen.The bond posted may be paid by yourself, another person, or through the services of a commercial surety bail bonding agency.
