Nebraska Revised Statutes Of 1943 Chapter 25. Courts, District; Civil Procedure Article 22. General Provisions. (d) Miscellaneous § 25-2222. Sureties; affidavit of qualifications; effect.
Ministerial officers, whose duty it is to take security on undertakings, bonds and recognizances, provided by this code, shall require the person offered as surety to make an affidavit of his qualifications. The taking of such an affidavit shall not exempt any ministerial officer, or other officer acting in a ministerial capacity, from any liability to which he might otherwise be subject for taking insufficient surety.
§ 25-2223. Sureties; justification; requirements.
The surety in every undertaking, bond and recognizance, provided by this code, must be a resident of this state and must have property, liable to execution, situate in the county in this state in which such undertaking, bond or recognizance is to be given and filed, worth at least double the sum to be secured, beyond the amount of all liens and encumbrances thereon and his exemptions therein; but this provision shall not be held to apply to incorporated surety companies authorized by the laws of this state to transact business. Except in the case of incorporated surety companies, where there are two or more sureties in the same undertaking, bond or recognizance, they must, in the aggregate, have the qualifications prescribed in this section.
- Nebraska Revised Statutes Of 1943 Chapter 29. Criminal Procedure Article 9. Bail. § 29-906. Surrender of accused by surety to sheriff; authority.
- In all cases of bail for the appearance of any person or persons charged with any criminal offense, the surety or sureties of such person or persons may, at any time before judgment is rendered against him or them, seize and surrender such person or persons charged as aforesaid to the sheriff of the county wherein the recognizance shall be taken.
- At this time, there appear to be no specific regulations for “Bounty Hunters” in the Nebraska statutes.
