Inmate Bail, Bonds & How it Works

Kentucky no longer allows outside bail companies to act as an agent for people arrested there, so if an inmate wants to be bonded out it must be by a friend, family member or themselves.

The bail page lists the various bail bond amounts for each offense, the different types of bonds, acceptable bail bond collateral, bond costs, where to post a bond and the hours you can post a bond in Scott County.

Illegal immigrants convicted of a state or federal crime will first do their time, then may be transferred into ICE custody for deportation.
