    The judge who decides for the arrest warrant can set bail for an arrested person to leave custody and wait for trial out of jail. If you are an arrestee who has been given the possibility to defend from freedom, you can post the bail according to the court rules in cash or in surety. Call the Sheriff’s Department on 417-283-4400 to inquire about the bond type, amount and set criteria. You can get in touch with a bondsman and borrow the bail money if you don’t have it at hand.

Failure to show up at court will forfeit the bail and the bounty hunter arranged by the bondsman will have you arrested.
