Posting Bail

Posting Bail

There are several ways someone can be released prior to trial. One way is by posting bail.  If a person has been charged with a crime or served a warrant that designates bail, the person can post bail.  In most cases, inmates may have someone post 10% of the total bail to be released. If an individual has enough money in his/her commissary account to post bail, that person can self-bail.   In some cases, however, full bail is required.

There are no bail bondsmen in Oregon.

Bail is accepted 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  Bail is accepted only in the form of cash, cashiers check (made out to Clatsop County Circuit Court Clerk) or money order.
