Any person charged with a misdemeanor or petty offense by complaint filed in the county
court shall be admitted to bail or pretrial release as provided in article 4 of this
code. When the county judge or judges are not immediately available for purposes of admission
to bail or pretrial release of persons arrested and brought to the county court or
jail, on charges of committing a misdemeanor or petty offense, such persons may be
admitted to bail or be given a pretrial release by an appropriate officer designated
by court rule. Unless otherwise provided by statute or supreme court rule, the county court shall
provide by rule for the conditions and circumstances under which an admission to bail
or pretrial release will be granted pending appearance before the judge, but in no
event shall any such rule require conditions or impose liabilities in excess of those
required by this code for cases filed in the district court.
