LMCLR CR3.2(n) BAIL OR BOND PROCEDURES 1) Upon receipt of bail or bond for a case where charges are pending review and filing by the Prosecutor, the court shall create a case in JIS and hold the bail or bond for 30 days. If no formal charges have been filed by the Prosecutor in that time, then the bail will be returned to the payee, and/or a notice of exoneration will be mailed to the bonding agency that posted the bond. 2) When a case is dismissed or sentence imposed, any financial obligations for fines, penalties and/or costs on the case shall be deducted from bail posted by the defendant, and the remainder shall be returned to the defendant, unless the bail has already been forfeited subject to RCW 10.19.140. 3) If cash bail was posted subsequent to the issuance of a bench warrant, the court shall deduct a warrant fee prior to refunding the bail. This rule shall also apply if a person other than the defendant posted the bail. 4) If bail or bond has been processed for forfeiture, and the judge has ordered the forfeited bail returned to the payee, per RCW 10.19.140 the court shall deduct a warrant fee and/or booking fee, when applicable, prior to the return of the bail or bond forfeiture. (Effective 09/01/12)
