Should I pay a bond or accept Tarrant County Pretrial Release?

Pretrial Release is similar to a PR bond (personal recognizance) in Tarrant County. The following qualification must be met for a person to be eligible for Pretrial Release:

  • The inmate must be Tarrant or Dallas County resident;
  • The inmate must be in jail on a Tarrant County offense (other than a first-degree felony);
  • The person must not be on parole for a felony offense or have any prior felony convictions;
  • The person must agree to appear in court at every required setting until the case is complete;
  • The inmate must provide proof of identification; and
  • The inmate must NOT have history of bond forfeitures on any previous criminal cases.

Tarrant County Pretrial Release is committed to maintaining a cost-efficient program for the release of qualifying defendants from jail. This helps in unburdening the overcrowded jails, provides a fair and easy method of release from incarceration.

A person or family members should contact Tarrant County Pretrial Release at (817) 884-1465 to check to see if a defendant is eligible. Pretrial Release is generally preferred over paying a bond to a bail bondsman. However, as long as a bond has been set on the case, a bondsman is probably the fastest way to get someone released from the Mansfield City Jail.
