If the defendant has an attorney, the relative may contact the defendant’s attorney. Court personnel may provide public information, such as upcoming court dates and how to post bond. In some cases, the arresting agency can provide terms of release or other information and may be able to accept bond.
If a person wishes to post bond for a defendant, Pinal County Superior Court currently provides helpful information for posing bond through the Court. View Requirements for Posting Criminal Bond(s) (PDF).
The bond will be exonerated (released) after the conclusion of the case or when ordered by the court. The court must have a current mailing address to return money, which usually occurs within 10 business days from the exoneration (release) of the bond.
If (15) days from the exoneration date has passed and you have not received your cash bond, please contact the Pinal County Clerk of the Superior Court Finance Department at 520-866-5340 or 520-866-5397.
A first-time offender, convicted of a single felony count, does not need to petition the court for restoration of civil rights. Civil rights are automatically restored upon successful completion of all aspects of sentencing, including payment of all court ordered fines, fees and restitution. The right to possess firearms requires petitioning the sentencing court. The Judge will determine whether or not to grant the request. If the party served time in prison, two years must have passed since the date of absolute discharge before becoming able to file for restoration of civil rights. To restore civil rights, the party may apply to the sentencing court to vacate the judgment of guilt, dismiss charges and/or restore civil rights in Arizona.
Pinal County Clerk of the Superior Court currently provides a packet with instructions and forms to petition to restore your civil rights. Access the Restoration of Civil Rights Application Packet (PDF).
