Brandon Defense Attorneys are often asked about the internal procedures and the timeline for the release of folks after bond has been posted from Hillsborough and Pinellas County Jails, but unfortunately our information is limited and based solely on our experience as Brandon Defense Attorneys. Generally, I tell individuals to expect it to take between four and eight hours for their loved ones to get out of jail once bond has been posted. This is based on several factors.
First, individuals are kept at two different jail locations in Hillsborough County. Hillsborough County uses both the Faulkenburg Road Jail and the Orient Road Jail facilities, while these facilities are close to one another, it still takes sometimes for the Sheriff’s Office to transport inmates back and forth. Both of these facilities house inmates, but only the Orient Road Jail facility releases inmates.
Secondly, Hillsborough County Jails consistently lock down because of safety or security concerns. This further complicates matters of getting your loved ones out of jail as they are forced to sit through these lockdowns where no one is able to come or go out of their cell blocks. Due to security and safety concerns, they also cannot give out the exact time inmates are going to be transported between the two facilities.
