During just the first weekend of Indio's 2016 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, 128 people were arrested on charges of drug possession, use of alcohol by a minor, and obstructing police from performing their duty. This number is on track to out-do the 2015 arrest total of 226, and the Indio Police Department states that the uptick in arrests is directly related to stricter enforcement.
The Indio city motto, "The Place to Be," makes sense when enjoying a festival or the city's famous locally grown dates, but Indio is also a common place to be arrested.
And one of the first things you need to do when you or your loved one are arrested in Indio is to contact a bail bonds agency, like Rocco Edivan Bail Bonds, that has mobile agents on the ground and can respond quickly in your hour of need.
Arrested in Indio, CA
Those arrested in Indio will likely be taken immediately to the Indio Detention Center Jail Facility at 46057 Oasis Street. This facility, managed by the Riverside Sheriff's Department, holds both suspects awaiting trial and convicted criminals. It holds both male and female inmates.
To minimize the time spent at Indio Jail or another facility, it is critical to call a bail bonds agent early so that your loved one's bail can be posted as soon as he/she is fully booked. At Rocco Edivan, we possess a detailed knowledge of the local Indio jail and court systems as well as of California bail and bail bonds law. We know how to move quickly to bail you or a loved one out of jail and how to avoid unnecessary delays.
Bail Bonds in Indio, CA
Your bail amount will be determined based on the nature of the alleged crime you were arrested for, with reference to the Riverside County bail schedule and to your past criminal record. The amount is typically too high for most to pay in cash, and very few are released without bail on their own recognizance (O.R.) Thus, it is almost always more practical to take out a bail bond, which allows you to get out of jail fast after paying only a fraction of the bail amount.
The California Department of Insurance dictates that premiums for bail bonds in the state shall be 10% of the bail amount, not more nor less. Other than special instances that allow an 8% fee or a 15% fee for federal bail bonds, any deviation from this set premium rate is illegal and destroys the validity of your bail bond. Be sure you are dealing with a reputable company that offers the true, legal rates.
Note that the bail bonds agency is liable to the court for the full bail amount when a bail bond is posted, and the bond's co-signer is liable to reimburse the bail bonds agency should the bond money be lost due to the defendant's failure to show up for his/her court dates and abide by the terms of his bail. Also note that a forfeited bond can be reinstated by the court after the defendant finally appears, though this is not at all guaranteed.
Bail bonds are a tool that allows an arrestee to get out of jail before his arraignment so he can hire a good lawyer and have time to prepare a solid defense. As long as the bail terms are adhered to, a bail bond is a great help.
