If a defendant is not released on personal recognizance under ORS 135.255, or granted conditional release under ORS 135.260, or fails to agree to the provisions of the conditional release, the Judge may require a security deposit often called “bail” or “bond” for release from custody. If you are paying a security deposit for someone with a charge in the Springfield Municipal Court you may do so by:
Contacting the Springfield Municipal Court during the hours of 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at 541-726-3748 or in person on the second floor of the Springfield Justice Center;
Or after hours by:
Contacting the Springfield Police Department at 541-726-3714 or in person on the first floor of the Springfield Justice Center. (Please note that the building doors are locked after hours and you will need to use the phone in the entry lobby to let staff know you are wanting to post bail.)
Please know that the state of Oregon prohibits bondsmen, bounty hunters, and commercial bail bond businesses. The Springfield Municipal Court will never solicit payment in the form of gift cards, crypto currency, or other alternative payment methods.
