Officers use a bond schedule to determine the bond. Bond is set as “cash only” or “cash/surety” and can be posted with a bonding company or at the detention facility. A cash/surety bond requires ten-percent (10%) of the amount to be posted. Bond is held until the end of the case to ensure the defendant’s appearance in court. If a defendant cannot post bond he or she is transported for an arraignment within forty-eight (48) hours. Bonding companies charge a fee and do not refund the bond, however bond posted at the detention facility is forwarded to Isleta Tribal Court and may be refunded to the posting-party at the end of the case (not to the defendant). Before a bond refund check can be processed the posting-party must complete a W-9 form form and submit it to the Court. It takes approximately two to three weeks for the Tribal Treasurer’s Office to process bond refund checks. Bond refund checks are picked up at the Court.
