Where Do I Go for Court?
If any of your court hearings are to be held in the Chino Hills, California area you will have to appear at the Rancho Cucamonga District Courthouse located at 8303 Haven Avenue in Rancho Cucamonga, California. If you have questions and need to call the courthouse, the number for criminal cases is 909-350-9764. This information will be included in your paperwork along with a list of your charges and any stipulations that were put in place by the judge. The dates of your scheduled hearings will also be included. If, for any reason, you need facilitation in attending your court dates, we are happy to assist. We will do everything we can to accommodate the defendant and the co-signer throughout the duration of the case.
What About Bail?
Immediately after an arrest, the defendant will be taken to the nearest available jail and the booking process will begin, this is relatively fast but must be done before the bail is posted. Everyone has the right to bail according to the 8th Amendment of the Constitution. The only case in which bail is denied is if the judge deems the defendant is a danger to the community or the flight risk is far too high. In rare cases, the defendant can avoid bail by being released on “own Recognizance” meaning they have a minimal charge, good reputation in the community, and low flight risk.
Bail is set high to discourage defendants from fleeing justice. If bail is set as a cash bond, you will have to pay the full amount of the bond in cash in order to obtain the defendant's release. If the defendant is offered a surety bond, you will need to hire a bail bonds agency if you can't pay for the bond in cash. When you hire a bail bonds agent, they will complete the application over the phone, in person, or electronically. This process only takes thirty minutes. You will then have to secure the contract by paying a 10% premium. Per California law, the premium you pay will be 10% of the total bond amount and can be paid in several different ways: cash, money order, credit/debit cards, cashier's checks or physical property.
How Do I Know How Much to Pay?
Beyond the 10% premium, a reliable bonds agency should be very clear about what additional expenses will be required of you. It is advised that you do not sign anything g without a thorough explanation for what it is. This is because unfortunately, most agencies utilize hidden fees to maximize their profits at your expense. Hidden fees you should be looking for are typically annual premiums, twofold bond charges, and “resumption of liability” write ups. Riverside Bail Bonds will never engage in these behaviors and will only ask for one fee, upfront, that will cover our services for the duration of your case. It is important to be cautious and only pay for what was agreed to at the initial creation of any contract with the bail agency. This is to protect both the co-signer and defendant, and the agency issuing the bond.
An annual premium is when the agency requires you to renew your bond in the even that your case extends beyond a full year. What they do not tell you, is that this fee can sum up to the initial premium or even more. This simply unreasonable as it is not uncommon for cases to extend beyond a year, to no fault of the defendant. Likewise, agencies will often require you to re-purchase your bond if the district attorney fails to make formal charges, resulting in a cancelled bond. Riverside Bail Bonds will never ask you to pay any additional fees beyond the 10% premium. In fact, we even offer the service of writing “Resumption of Liability” letters for free. These are necessary to reinstate bail after it has been forfeited by the judge, as a measure to protect the co-signer from having to pay the full costs of the bail. While other agencies cost hundreds of dollars for this letter, we will never charge you. We want nothing more for you to feel at ease in our hands.
Once the premium has been paid, the agent will go to the jail to post the bond and retrieve your loved one. It is not unlikely for this process to take several hours if the jail is crowded, but we will do everything in our power to operate in a timely manner. The agent will go over what happens next and will make sure the defendant knows when their court date is and where they will have to go to appear in court. They will also go over any stipulations the court has put in place while the bond is in effect.
When the defendant has been released from jail, they must remain in compliance with any conditions that were put in place by the court. These can include but are not limited to: consistent attendance to all court hearings, remaining within the jurisdiction of the court, reporting any changes in contact information, maintaining a clean record, and complying with any restraining orders. If the defendant follows the orders of the court, their bond will remain in place and they can return to work and continue to care for their family. However, the judge may forfeit the bond at any point if there is no compliance. If this happens, the co-signer will be given a grace period of thirty days to return the defendant to jail or they will be held fully responsible for the entire amount of the bail. We will work with both the co-signer and the defendant to ensure that all protocol is met and will go as far as to helping the defendant attend all hearings.
During this time, it is in the defendant’s best interest to contact an attorney and work with them to build the best defense possible for their case. They can also use this time to get their affairs in order in case they do receive any jail time during sentencing. It's important to make the most of the time that's available and be mindful of their obligations.
Who Do I Talk To?
The bail bond agency you hire will be your guide as well as a vital source of information. You can contact them at any time if you have questions or concerns about bail or the bail bond process. Once the defendant has been released, they will be required to check in with the agent on a regular basis. In some cases, this may be once a week or once a day, depending on the circumstances. Because your bail bond agent has established a working relationship with law enforcement and court representatives throughout the state, they will be able to get information for you as to the defendant's charges, their release time and other important information you may need.
