      Writ Bonds Explained

      A “Writ Bond” is a filing by a lawyer in Collin County that will cause the sheriff’s office to set a bond prior to the arrested person being seen by a magistrate on a Class A or B Misdemeanor (typically DWI, possession of marijuana, or theft).

      Writ Bonds aren’t applicable for felony arrests, traffic ticket arrests or assault arrests.

      People arrested by police in any Collin County city may be eligible for a writ bond whether they are in the County jail in McKinney or not. These communities include (but aren’t limited to) Prosper, Allen, Frisco, Plano, Celina, Fairview, Anna, Melissa, Parker or Murphy.

      A “writ bond” shouldn’t be confused with a bail bond.

      Hiring an attorney for a writ bond in Collin County is an important decision. Not only can the attorney help your friend or loved one be released from jail quickly, but they can help ease your mind with information about the criminal justice system which may be rushing through your mind.
