Bond Source Hearing Required in Nashville/Davidson County, Tennessee

In Davidson County (Nashville, Tennessee), the General Sessions and Criminal Courts require a bond source hearing pursuant to Tennessee Code Annotated 39-11-715 before any bond can be posted of $75,000 or more or before any person can post a cash bond of $10,000 or more.

The courts have the authority to require such source hearings to ensure that proceeds that are directly or indirectly derived from a criminal offense are not used to secure a bond or pay a premium bond. The burden of proof is on the party seeking to post the bond to get the approval of the court.
