Helping Someone Get Released From Jail
We understand that having a friend or a family member in jail can be a frustrating experience that requires your time, money, and patience. When you are trying to get someone released from jail you may post bond and obtain release forms from the Henderson County Sheriff's Department, located at 170 Justice Center Drive, Lexington, TN. They can provide you with information to help with getting a person released from jail.
Reasons for Being Held in Jail
There are three basic reasons for a person to be held in jail. They are:
- Unable to post a cash bond on a pending Henderson County or THP traffic offense
- Failure to pay (FTP) for a court fine after a court appearance
- For time served when unable to pay bond or court fine after a court appearance
Release methods include posting the full amount of the bond in cash or obtaining a surety bond from a licensed bondsman. The booking clerk is unable to suggest an attorney or surety bondsman for you to use.
