Those wishing to post felony bonds for a loved one in Cuyahoga County now have an easier option for payment.
Bond payments can be made online with a credit card through the Cuyahoga County Clerk of Courts website 24 hours a day. This makes the bond posting process more accessible and continues bond reform efforts already implemented by the Court.
“I have always been concerned about people not being able to post bond on weekends and holidays,” says Administrative and Presiding Judge Brendan Sheehan. “Having this in place ahead of the holidays means that more people will be able to expedite the bond process to be released from jail.”
“The bond payment system, while helpful to many in the County jail system, has historically been an antiquated process requiring loved ones to pay in-person or over the phone,” said County Executive Armond Budish. “Payments can now be made quickly in the comfort of home with little fuss.”
The online payment process for bond posting is available on the Clerk of Courts docket webpage.
