Bail and Bondsman

Bail is the money lodged with the court to secure the release of a pretrial inmate from custody. It serves to ensure the court that the defendant will fulfill all his court obligations. If he violates any of the conditions of his release, he forfeits the money.

@alexisXO____ @FOX2News @OakGov Appreciate your candor and opinion. This is standard operating procedure for any type of infectious disease. Much like the stay home order, we have to keep inmates in place as much as possible to prevent spreading any chance of exposure.

@alexisXO____ @FOX2News @OakGov They all have access to our psychologists and mental health services offered by Easter Seals. They are being monitored and checked-on three times a day.

@alexisXO____ @FOX2News @OakGov Any unnecessary movement is not allowed right now to protect inmates from any COVID-19 exposure. They are allowed time to shower, make calls, speak with their attorney, and have clergy visits. This is standard protocol across all jails and prisons currently.

@alexisXO____ @FOX2News @OakGov The woman who passed away did so by suicide and was unrelated to COVID-19. Details will be released to the media very soon. There is only one confirmed case of COVID-19 among inmates in the Oakland County Jail. Anything else being reported is untrue and false rhetoric.
