Indiana Code Title 35. Criminal Law and Procedure § 35-33-8-3.9

Sec. 3.9 . (a) If the court determines that an arrestee is to be held subject to money bail, the court is authorized to determine the amount of bail and whether the bail may be satisfied by surety bond or cash deposit.

(b) The court may set and accept a partial cash payment of the bail upon conditions set by the court, including the arrestee's agreement (and the agreement of a person who makes a cash payment on behalf of an arrestee, if applicable) that all court costs, fees, and expenses associated with the proceeding shall be paid from the partial payment.

(c) If the court authorizes the acceptance of a cash partial payment to satisfy bail, the court shall first secure the arrestee's agreement (and the agreement of a person who makes a cash payment on behalf of an arrestee, if applicable) that, in the event of failure to appear as scheduled, the deposit shall be forfeited and the arrestee must also pay any additional amounts needed to satisfy the full amount of bail plus associated court costs, fees, and expenses.
