    Bail and Bondsman

    A person arrested in St. Mary Parish can remain free from jail while awaiting trial if he or she is able to post bail. Bail is when the court requires money to be deposited into their care while the trial is ongoing. This is to help ensure that the defendant shows up at his trial. If he/she misses a court appearance, the money is forfeited.

    A defendant who is unable to post bail due to financial constraints is allowed to hire a bondsman to post bail on his behalf. The bondsman will also be held liable by the court for payment of the entire bail amount if the defendant fails to fulfill his court obligations. To hire a bondsman, the defendant must pay him 12% of the bail. This fee is non-refundable.

    Electronic devices are one of the ultimate distractions, especially when you're behind the wheel.
    Anytime you shift your attention from driving, you're distracted.
