Based on legislation that was signed into law last year by the Governor of Florida and that went into effective January 1, 2024, the highest Court in the state of Florida, the Florida Supreme Court, must now adopt a uniform bond schedule and be distributed to the twenty judicial circuits in Florida. Up until now, judicial circuits in Florida had their own advisory bond schedules that judges at initial or first appearance could refer to in setting monetary bond amounts for arrested
individuals. This gave Judges the discretion to consider factors that he/she felt were relevant in a particular case and situation as to what should be a reasonable bond for that Defendant. Now, that has changed, and the uniform bond schedule to be set be the high court in Florida will now mandate what is to be followed in every judicial circuit in Florida by the judges at initial or first appearance for monetary bond amounts. The uniform bond schedule will be required by the new law to be updated annually by the Florida Supreme Court. Stay tuned.
