What About Bail?
Everyone has the right to bail according to the 8th Amendment of the Constitution. 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. You will have to secure the contract by paying a 10% premium. 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.
Once the premium has been paid, the agent will go to the jail to post the bond and retrieve your loved one. The agent will 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.
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. The agents of Rocco Edivan Bail Bonds are always available to help, any time, night or day.
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.
Obligations After Bonding Out?
Once a 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:
- Do not leave the jurisdiction of the court
- Report any changes in address, employment, or contact information to both the court and the bail bond agent who is handling your case
- Do not be charged with any new crimes
- Comply with any restraining orders or other restrictions put in place by the court
- Attend any and all court hearings that were scheduled by the judge
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.
During this time, it's also in their 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.
