Right to Bond

Pursuant to Sec. 15-13-1, et seq. of the Code of Alabama, all defendants have the right to post bond prior to their trial date.  There are three acceptable ways to post the established bond amount: cash; pay a Bail Bonds company to post the correct bond for the defendant; or have two Lee County property owners post a property bond on the defendant's behalf.

Cash Bonds

Cash bonds are accepted in person at the Municipal Court Clerk's Office, 141 N. Ross Street, during normal business hours.

If you are attempting to post a cash bond for someone currently incarcerated in the Lee County Jail by the City of Auburn, and wish to pay that cash bond either after normal business hours OR with a debit or credit card, you can do so by going to is an independent vendor that has contracted with the City of Auburn to add this additional option to post a cash bond. The convenience fee paid over and above the bond amount is paid solely to and is not being charged by the City of Auburn or Auburn Municipal Court.
