Palm Springs Bail Bonds

Palm Springs, California, is an idyllic place to live and an iconic place to visit — from palm-lined streets to natural hot springs to boutique shopping and high-end dining on Canyon Drive. But Palm Springs is more than just a classy desert resort town in California's Coachella Valley. It is also a locale with a high crime and arrest rate, for locals and visitors alike.

No one plans on needing a bail bond in Palm Springs, but when you suddenly find yourself charged with a DUI, a drug crime, domestic violence, disturbing the peace, or some other violation, your first need is to get out of jail as fast as possible so you can find a good lawyer and begin building a solid defense for your case.

Why Opt for Bail Bonds to Get Out of Jail?

In Palm Springs, arrestees will typically be taken first to the local Palm Springs City Jail on 200 South Civic Drive, there to be fingerprinted on a Live Scan device and to await transfer to a larger facility, such as Riverside County Jail. 

Under California law, you can only be held in jail for 24 hours on misdemeanor charges and 48 hours on felony charges before seeing a court commissioner. But even a short time in a harsh, violent jail environment, especially a large county jail, can be dangerous. And without paying your bail, you may have to remain in jail during your trial, which could mean days or weeks behind bars.

But is taking out a bail bond the only way to get out of jail? Technically, no. But for most, practically speaking, yes. Let me explain. You are allowed to pay the full bail amount in cash upfront, but few can afford to do that. You can also pay with a "property bond," but that means risking the equity in your home (or in a friend or family member's home) and waiting in jail while the title and other information are verified. In rare cases, you might get out on "O.R." (own recognizance), which means no bail is required and you are let out based only on your promise to appear in court for your arraignment. But most do not qualify for O.R. release.

That only leaves bail bonds. A bail bond allows you to pay only a fee equal to 10% of the total bail amount to a bail bondsman instead of the full bail. This fee is set by state law and cannot be more nor less than 10%, though a reduction to 8% is allowed in certain rare cases. It is non-refundable and is how bail bondsmen make their living. That said, it requires 90% less money upfront than a cash bond and gets you out of jail as fast as possible.

How Does the Bail Bonds Process Work in Palm Springs?

The key to making your stay in jail short in Palm Springs and to avoid being transferred to a county jail facility is to contact a local bail bonds agency as quickly as possible after the arrest. You will normally have an opportunity to do so at the Palm City Jail. Alternatively, a friend or family member can contact a bail bonds agent in your behalf. Once you have been transferred to a larger facility, it could take hours longer to complete booking and release and get you out of jail.

At Rocco Edivan Bail Bonds, we have agents on the ground who can respond in literally minutes' time to your call for help. We can complete the paperwork and arrange payment over the phone or in person in 20 to 30 minutes and post bail as soon as you have been fully booked. This will minimize your time spent behind bars. 

Posting bail involves the bail bondsman guaranteeing the court the full bail amount in the event the defendant fails to appear for his arraignment, but the bond co-signer, in turn, guarantees that amount to the bail bondsman. The co-signer can be the arrestee himself but is usually a friend/relative of the arrestee.

In the event the defendant "skips bail" and does not appear in court, bail bondsman are authorized to use bounty hunters to bring him before the court. This is in the best interests of all concerned since the bail money is forfeited when the defendant flees justice but could possibly be reinstated (at the judge's discretion) when he/she finally does appear in court.

At Rocco Edivan, we understand that many cannot afford to pay even the 10% premium upfront in full, and therefore, we offer affordable payment plans with very reasonable terms.

.Bail Bond Process

Before entering into a bail bond agreement, you need to first understand the process. When a person is arrested, their bail is often set be a pre-determined bail bond schedule that eliminates the need for an arraignment hearing. If an arraignment hearing is scheduled, it is usually because there are multiple charges, or the charge may be severe enough that the judge wants the chance to weigh in on the amount of bail being set. Once bail has been set, you can complete the bond application, pay the state mandated 10% fee and wait to pick up the defendant once he or she has been released. Part of the agreement is ensuring the defendant appears in court at the scheduled time. Once the case has been heard and the defendant has been sentenced, the judge will release any amount that is left over back to the co-signer.

Benefits of Bail Bonds

The 8th Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees each individual the right to post bond and obtain early release until their trial date. This prevents a defendant from being detained unnecessarily, especially if they have regular employment and family obligations that must be met. Posting bond allows them to return to work and support their family. It also gives them the opportunity to hire an attorney and assist in the creation of their defense. Posting bond affords several privileges, but it also comes with many responsibilities.

Honoring Your Obligations and Responsibilities

Once bond has been posted, the bail bond contracts requires that several obligations and responsibilities are met. There are several things you must agree to before bond can be posted. A few of them include:

  • Not being involved in any further criminal activity
  • Not leaving the court's jurisdiction
  • Honoring any restrictions put in the place concerning PPO's, restraining orders, etc.
  • Attending all hearings or meetings scheduled by the court
  • Checking in on a daily or weekly basis with the bail bond agent in charge of your case

You are responsible for your own actions while you are out on bond. If the judge or other court official discovers that you have been re-arrested, jumped bail or have left the jurisdiction of the court  for any reason, your bond may be revoked and the bail bonds agency will be instructed to return you to the custody of the jail or risk forfeiture of the entire bond amount. Once your case has been closed, your bond will be released, and your obligations will be fulfilled.
