Bond Schedule
In accordance with Criminal Rule 46, R.C. 2937.222 and Rule 5.02 of the Rules of Superintendence, the following bond schedule is adopted and court ordered for all traffic and criminal cases in the Fairborn Municipal Court when the person has been arrested. There is a presumption of personal bond for all misdemeanor charges unless otherwise provided by statute.

The Judge or Magistrate shall set bond(s) for the following cases:

  1. Personal recognizance is the rule.

    If the police officer or prosecutor, based on the circumstances of the case, has reasonable cause to believe that a personal recognizance bond is insufficient, the Defendant will be held with no bond until seen by the judge or magistrate. If the judge or magistrate determines that personal bail is insufficient, the conditions of release shall be set pursuant to Crim.R.46.

    When a judge or magistrate has previously set bail in a case, or has ordered a new amount in its last capias or warrant entry, that bail shall remain in effect unless otherwise ordered by a judge or magistrate.

For all other charges, the judge or magistrate of the court shall set bail pursuant to CrimR.46.
This includes:

  1. Felonies;
  2. Misdemeanor charges, regardless of whether charged under the Ohio Revised Code, local ordinance, or other statutory provision:
    1. Domestic violence or any other offense of violence if the victim is a family or household member (see:R.C. 2919.251);
    2. Violation of any protection order or condition of community control, supervision, or probation involving prohibition from contact with specified persons or places;
    3. The following offenses if the accused was subject to a protection order and/or has a prior conviction involving the same complainant/victim pursuant to R.C. 2903.212;
      1. Aggravated Menacing (R.C. 2903.21)
      2. Menacing by stalking (R.C. 2903.211)
      3. Menacing (R.C. 2903.22)
      4. Aggravated trespass (R.C. 2911.21)
      5. Any sexually oriented offense as defined by R.C. 2950.01
    4. Any other offense when the victim, police officer, or prosecutor is seeking a protection order, no contact order, or other conditions of bond.

In addition to the amount of bond, all bonds shall include additional statutory fees for misdemeanor and felony charges.

In all cases a surety bond may be posted instead of a cash bond if the surety has been approved by the Clerk of the Fairborn Municipal Court.

This bond schedule is effective as July 1, 2021, for all cases filed in the Fairborn Municipal Court and supersedes any and all previous bond schedules of Fairborn Municipal Court.
