What happens when a suspect is arrested?

If a suspect is booked into the Geary County Detention Facility on felony charges he/she is entitled to a bond hearing within 48 hours of his/her arrest. If the suspect is booked in on misdemeanor charges a bond schedule is used. The Court may set a bond that is either cash or surety. It may be a condition of bond that the defendant has no contact with the victim. If the defendant bonds out of jail he is then set for a first appearance.
