Local Rule L-4007:  Admission of Persons to Bail; No. 147 Misc. 1996

[26 Pa.B. 5635]


   An error appeared in Washington County Local Rule L-4007:  Admission of Persons to Bail; No. 147 Misc. 1996 as printed at 26 Pa.B. 5228 (November 2, 1996). The correct version of the rule appears as follows, with ellipses referring to the existing text of the rule:

   L-4007-Bail. This Rule is intended to implement percentage cash bail as provided by Pa.R.Crim.P. 4007.

   a.  Bail by approved surety companies, cash, real estate, or bearer bonds, in accordance with Pa.R.Crim.P. 4007 shall remain as heretofore.

   If the issuing authority who fixes the amount of bond, Judge or District Justice, as the case may be, desires to render paragraph 2 hereof inoperative, he may do so by any language that makes it clear that the full face amount of the bond is to be posted. This of course may be done in any permissible mode:  cash, the bond of a good reputable surety company, justification of surety with two owners of, sufficient real estate, bearer bonds, or an acceptable commercial bail bondsman.
