Felony

The Felony Division deals with the more serious crimes of rape, murder, burglary and grand theft. Felony clerks attend court hearings and prepare appeals. They work closely with the State Attorney's Office, Public Defender, Department of Corrections, and the Judges.

An arrest on a felony offense means that the defendant is usually booked into the county jail. Most felony offenses are bondable offenses according to the bail schedule. Murder charges are usually set at no bond. The duty judge usually sees individuals arrested on felonies within twenty-four hours of their arrest. At first appearance, bail is set, and the court determines whether the defendant can afford to hire counsel. A Public Defender will be appointed if the defendant is found to be insolvent.
