How California Bail Works

san-bernadino-county-bail-bonds-922

For defendants, there is a price for freedom and that price can be very low, a few hundred dollars, extremely high, one million dollars, or anywhere in between. Freedom is what America is all about, so who gets to put a price on freedom for defendants? And how is that amount determined for each person? The price for freedom for recently arrested individuals is called bail, and judges are the ones who determine bail for defendants.

Bail is a dollar amount that a defendant must pay to the court in order to be released from jail. Anyone may assist the defendant in paying this money, especially when the bail is very expensive. The more expensive the bail, the more serious the circumstances are. Some examples would be a very serious crime was committed, the defendant may be a flight risk, or the defendant may have a prior criminal record.

There is a bail schedule that judges follow, which outlines the bail amount per crime, and offense. The bail schedule is reviewed and adapted annually.

Luckily, San Bernadino County Bail Bond Store can get you a bail bond to get out of jail even faster. You will pay us a premium, 10% of the full bail amount, and within hours, you will be released.

What You Should Know About Bail And Bail Bonds

san-bernadino-county-bail-bonds-912

You know that with San Bernadino County Bail Bond Store, you will not be facing this bail situation alone. You will have a professional and licensed bail bond agent with you for every step of the way so you know exactly what is going on. Nonetheless, it is good to do independent research on the industry to give you an idea of what to expect. You will also want to look up keywords you will come across.

  • Bail
  • Bail is a payment to the court that offers the defendant temporary release from jail. This defendant is still waiting for trial and has yet to be acquitted or convicted.

  • Bail Bond
  • A bail bond is a written promise from a defendant to pay a premium, 10% of the bail in California, to the bail bond company and to show up to court when he or she is required to. The bail bond will then secure a defendant’s release from jail.

  • Premium
  • Premium refers to the payments owed to a bail bond company for a bail bond. The premium will be 10% of the defendant’s bail amount.

  • Co-signer
  • The co-signer of a defendant’s bail bond will be assuming responsibility for that defendant. The co-signer must see that the defendant shows up for court. Being a co-signer can be risky, as they usually must pledge collateral, which they must forfeit if the defendant fails to show up for court. However, co-signers may also withdraw their responsibilities and name from the bail bond at any time, as a protection for themselves.

  • Own Recognizance
  • To be released on own recognizance, the judge must see that the defendant is generally a good person. For example, they do not have a prior criminal record, they have good relationships with others in the community, the crime they committed was a harmless, minor offense, or things of that nature. If a defendant is released on own recognizance, then they merely sign to promise to show up for court, then they may leave jail. They do not have to pay bail or a bail bond.

Again, it is quite all right if you do not understand all of this bail-related information right off the bat. That is what your San Bernadino County Bail Bond Store bail agent is here for – to make sure you understand what is going on and to get your loved one out of jail ASAP!
