You may have heard the legal term "released on own recognizance" or "OR" or "ROR". Many times courtroom shows will talk about someone who is released from jail this way. However, it is rare that a judge will release someone on their own recognizance in real life. Even small traffic charges have preset bonds and if you are arrested in the city of Armona, Avenal, Corcoran, Hanford, Home Garden, Kettleman City, Lemoore, Lemoore Station or Stratford, you will need a Kings County bondsman.
The Kings County Sheriff's Office operates two jails:
