Jails and Booking
If you are arrested in Buena Park, you will be taken to the closest available jail in the vicinity for booking. In most cases, that facility is the Men’s or Women’s Central Jail on 550 N. Flower St. Santa Ana, CA, 92703. Booking is where the inmate is checked into a facility, given clothes, and assigned a cell number. After this has been completed, the courts may charge the defendant and post bail. Bail is posted in two different ways. If the charge is a common crime in the area. There will often be a bail posting via a bail schedule. A bail schedule is a list of predetermined bail fees for certain crimes to minimize the time spent waiting to obtain a bond. If the crime is more high profile, the defendant may be asked to wait until a bail hearing is scheduled in which the defendant will have to face a judge to be given bail. Remember, it is your right as an American citizen to be given an opportunity for bail. The only reason under which this right would be withheld is if the defendant poses a flight risk or an overall danger to the community. You should contact a bail agency as soon as an arrest has been made to ensure that the defendant can be released shortly after bail is posted. Riverside Bail Bonds will do everything in our power to peed along this process and keep you informed of what actions need to be taken. If you feel your rights are violated in any way, it is your responsibility to contact a lawyer and follow the proper protocol to get the issue resolved. Riverside Bail Bonds will go to great lengths to keep you protected and secure.
How to Obtain a Bond
You may not be familiar with the various types of bonds and alternative payments on bail, but that’s okay. We don’t expect you to! Riverside Bail Bonds has trained their agents for years to be skilled and experienced in processing any type of bond you could possibly need! We will first collect all of the information on your case, then determine the type of bond, and then we will discuss payments and begin filling out the paperwork. We make a complex process simple, so that you can focus on the more crucial details like accessing litigation and building a solid defense. In some cases, a judge may not even require bail and let you out on your own recognizance. To qualify for this privilege, it must be a first-time misdemeanor crime and the defendant must not pose any danger or flight risk to their community. Because it is necessary for the defendant to be of high-profile within their community, this situation is fairly uncommon and there is usually some form of a bail fee required to be released. Fortunately, Riverside Bail Bonds can process almost any bond, including cash bonds, surety bonds, and property bonds. We will describe the most common bonds, what they are used for, and why they are helpful in certain situations. You can call us at any time to inquire further information regarding your specific case.
Cash bonds are typically the first type of bonds that come to mind when handling a bail fee. You might think that paying your entire bail charge in cash upfront is the simplest solution, and you would be right. However, being the simplest is not always the most logical. Bail can easily extend into the ten-thousand-dollar range making it extremely difficult to afford a cash bond in such short notice. In today’s society, it is common for people to struggle paying the monthly bills. No one has the time to be paying out thousands of dollars without any warning. Even the most financially well-off people should not shell out this kind of money for bail. Your money should be directed to building a suitable defense for your case. Likewise, cash bonds can take weeks to return after the case has completed. We want to help you alleviate any stress where ever possible. Thus, we have put together various payment plans and options to make a bail bond affordable to families of all economic backgrounds. Our office accepts cash, check, credit, debit, cashier’s check, money orders, and collateral in exchange for a bail premium fee. We will accommodate you in anywhere feasible and get you through this complex time. Do not take on a financial burden when you do not need to. When possible, we encourage all of our clients to seek a surety bond, the most efficient and affordable option.
When facing an expensive bail fee, your best option is to seek a surety bond. Surety bonds, also commonly referred to as bail bonds, are a written contract between a co-signer and a bail agency to post bail in exchange for compliance with the courts. Instead of paying the entire bail fee, the co-signer only pays a small percentage, and then the bail agent keeps that fee and posts the entire bond. This premium fee is fixed at 10%, via regulations set in place by California law. This is to protect the defendant, co-signer, and bail agency from paying an unfair price. Bail bonds allow you to come up with the cash in short notice, without putting a strain on your bank account. The premium is a small price to pay for stellar service and to see your loved one return home where they belong. Keep in mind, that as the co-signer, you will be taking on responsibilities for the bond and keeping the defendant in line with all stipulations set in place. It is important to be aware of all of your agreements before signing a bail contract with another agency. However, if a bail bond is still out of reach after the many payment plans to choose from, there may be a suitable alternative option for you.
There are always alternative options, and although we do not advise it, you can also take out a property bond. A property bond, unlike a surety bond, is secured with collateral and is not transferable to another co-signer. This means that if the co-signer no longer wants to be liable for the bond, they will have to fill out the proper paperwork to have their property released and return the defendant to custody. Now, collateral can easily be any item worth one and a half times the value of the bond. This overage is mandated to ensure the additional paperwork involved in securing property is taken care of. Commonly used collateral for a property bond are typically cars, jewelry, boats, and houses. However, it is not limited to these items. The problem with a property bond is that it is a lengthier process that requires far more paperwork that the typical bond. To secure property, it can take months to determine and while it is being processed, the defendant is sitting in custody helpless. The purpose of a bail bond is to be fast, affordable, and efficient. A property bond is often none of the above. However, there are times where a property bonds is mandated, such as in cases associated with illegal immigration. These cases require that bail is secured with property, simply because it necessitates that the defendant remain in the United States while handling their legal responsibilities. When a property bond is used to cover an illegal immigration case, your information will be overseen by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, also referred to as ICE. In the case that your bond is forfeited by a judge, the property will be sold off at auction to cover the bail fee and any remaining restitutions. Thereafter, the remaining fees will be returned to the co-signer.
What Happens When I’m Released?
You may think getting the bond was the difficult part, but everything you do from here forward is crucial to remaining out on bail to build a strong case for your defense. The court is going to mandate that you follow a very specific set of stipulations in order to be comfortable with allowing you to remain out on bail. The co-signer will be held responsible for keeping all contact, address, and case information consistently updated so that the courts and bail agency always have a grasp onto what is going on. The defendant will be required to attend all court hearing and remain within the vicinity of the court. They will also be required to avoid the charge of any additional crimes, including not following a restraining order if at all applicable. Failure to comply with any of these rules will lead to the judge issuing a bench warrant. That will leave the co-signer with approximately thirty days to find and return the defendant to custody before the bond is revoked. If the defendant is not returned, the co-signer will be held responsible for paying the entire bail fee that was once posted by the bail agency. That is why the role of a co-signer is a great responsibility. At this point, the only way to reinstate the bond is via a written letter by the bail agency. This letter might cost you hundreds of dollars with other agencies, but we write them free of charge to assist the co-signer throughout this process.
Now That all the restrictions are addressed, your next steps to building a strong case can be acted upon. Bail gives the defendant the gift of fighting their case while maintaining all of their freedoms from the comfort of their homes, but it is certainly not a time to relax. Your first action should be to access an attorney and any subsequent litigation that will put the odds of your case in your favor. Bail is also a time to return to work, whether at home or at an occupational facility. It is also a time to get your affairs in order if you are facing prison time in the event of a conviction. Our agents can happily remind you of court dates, help you attend thereof, and manage any other responsibilities you may need assistance in fulfilling.
