Bond Policy Revised for Rider Bonds
Effective immediately, when an offender is found guilty, by plea, trial or in any other fashion, and there is a request to set sentencing over to a different date, the Court will require a NEW bond to be presented at the time of the request. Documents from the bond agent purporting to extend the originally filed bond is ineffective and will NOT be accepted.
This policy is based upon RCW 10.64.025(1) and State v. French, 88 Wn.App. 586 (1997)
