Disposition of defendant upon arrest.
Disposition of defendant upon arrest.—
Except as provided in subsection (2), if a person who is arrested does not have a right to bail for the offense charged, he or she shall be delivered immediately into the custody of the sheriff of the county in which the indictment, information, or affidavit is filed. If the person who is arrested has a right to bail, he or she shall be released after giving bond on the amount specified in the warrant.
If the person who is arrested is, at the time of arrest, in the custody of the Department of Corrections under sentence of imprisonment, unless otherwise ordered by the court, such person shall remain in the department’s custody pending disposition of the charge or until the person’s underlying sentence of imprisonment expires, whichever occurs earlier. If the arrested state prisoner’s presence is required in court for any reason, the provisions of s. 944.17(8) shall apply.
