Local Criminal Rule 3.2 RELEASE OF ACCUSED (a) Bail and Recognizance. Defendants on bail or recognizance are expected to be available for nonscheduled appearances upon seventy-two (72) hours notice to defendant or defendant's attorney. They are expected to be present and on time at all scheduled appearances concerning which they have received either oral or written notice. Failure to appear in accordance with this rule may result in forfeiture of bail, revocation of recognizance, issuance of a bench warrant for arrest or additional criminal charges. (b) New Conditions of Release. In the event that bail is forfeited for any reason, new conditions of release must be entered and a new bond posted. No order reinstating a previously forfeited bond shall be issued by the court; however, the court may, for good cause shown, vacate the judgment of forfeiture. (c) Separate Bond Required. All case filings wherein conditions of release requiring bail are set shall require a separate and distinct bond posted by the surety in the specific amount specified for each case. A bond in the aggregate amount for multiple cases will not be allowed nor shall any order be presented to the court that fails to specify the exact amount of bail for each matter addressed in the order. (d) Post-Conviction Release. No plea of guilty shall be conditioned upon any agreement concerning the conditions of release provided for in CrR 3.2(f).
