If you are making an Online payment for a bench warrant, you must also contact the trial court during normal business hours to advise the Court of the payment so that the proper detention center discharges and sheriff's office correspondence may be processed. Without Court contact, the defendant may not be released and/or the bench warrant may not be recalled.

Bonds for ASGDC may not be paid with a credit card.
