DIGEST OF SB317 (Updated January 29, 2008 8:30 pm - DI 84)

Bail. Makes changes to the Indiana bail law concerning: (1) credit card service fee payments; (2) notices to sureties and bond agents; (3) circumstances under which a cause is determined; (4) failure to appear; and (5) substitution of bail for deposits. Specifies that a court may require a defendant admitted to bail to execute a bail bond written by an insurer (instead of being executed with sufficient solvent sureties). Removes a provision that allows a court to admit a defendant to bail by requiring the defendant to post a real estate bond. Provides that if a person charged with a felony under IC 35-42 (offenses against the person) is admitted to bail, the person: (1) shall be admitted to bail by executing a bail bond written by an insurer, depositing cash or securities in an amount equal to the bail, or executing a bond secured by certain real estate; and (2) may not be admitted to bail by executing a bail bond by depositing cash or securities in an amount not less than 10% of the bail.
