A person was arrested Saturday for class D felony, trafficking oppiates. Bond was set for $500, KRS 431.066 (5) (a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this subsection, regardless of the amount of the bail set, the court shall permit the defendant a credit of one hundred dollars ($100) per day as a payment toward the amount of the bail set for each day or portion of a day that the defendant remains in jail prior to trial. Upon the service of sufficient days in jail to have sufficient credit to satisfy the bail, the defendant shall be released from jail on the conditions specified in this section or in this chapter.
the exceptions in paragraph (b) are are sexual related charges. In section 7: (7) The jailer shall be responsible for tracking the credit earned by a defendant pursuant.If its the jailers responsibility to track the credit, how had this one never heard of it? Also, HB 463 includes this as well, as well as crediting the same toward bond. He has served two days, meaning in 3 more, he should have enough credit to be released, but how do we get this credit applied if the jailer who is responsbile for tracking it, has never even heard of it?
