Just Arrested? Here’s How to Get Out on Bail Bond

Being arrested can be a traumatic thing—but thankfully, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to be stuck in jail for the long haul. Assuming bail is offered, you can get out of jail and go be with your family as you await your scheduled court appearance. Of course, all this presumes that you have a good Orange County bail bond company to help you and that you understand the basics of the bail process. Here’s a quick guide—the steps you should take if you find yourself arrested. Call a Family Member The first thing you should do is call a family member, using the jail phone, and tell them what’s happened. Ask them to contact Remedy Bail Bonds right away to get the process started. The reason for this is that processing bail can take a little time, so the sooner you begin it the better. Give the Right Information As you ask your loved one to find Remedy bail bonds in the area, also provide them with as much information as you can about your situation. Tell them which jail you’re being held in, for starters. Your case number will be helpful, as well as the specific charges. Understand Premiums A bail bondsman will cover your bail for you, but you or your loved one will need to pay a premium—usually around 10 percent of the total bail amount. Make sure your loved one asks the Orange County bail bonds company about this. Be Aware of Whether You Get Bail at All At some point, you’ll appear before a judge, and bail will be set—usually. Sometimes, bail is denied. This is the judge’s prerogative, but it’s unlikely to happen unless you’re a repeat offender or a flight risk. It’s probably not anything to worry about, but do be aware […]

Spring Out of Jail

Spring is a season of new beginnings. Spring cleaning, out with the old in with the new. Flowers are in bloom and the past is well, passed. Is your loved one in jail? Do you know that you can “spring” them out and bring them home today by posting a bail bond? It’s much easier than you think! What Is A Bail Bond?  A Bail bond is a type of surety bond, in monetary or property form, issued to the court for the release of a person who has been arrested and placed in custody of the law. The bond acts as a promissory agreement between the defendant and the court system that implies the defendant will be present in court on a specified date set by the court.  Determining the cost of the bail bond depends on the following factors: The type of crime – Crimes that are considered petty or less violent than other crimes typically have lower bail bond costs. If a criminal act is more threatening to the community than usual, the higher the bail will most likely be. The defendant – The court judge has the ability to set bail or not, and determines the bail amount. Bail will most likely be set based on the nature of the crime as mentioned previously and if the defendant has a criminal record, is a flight risk (e.g., won’t show up for court), or has a reputation for unruly behavior. The jurisdiction – Depending on the county, there are bail schedules for certain types of crimes committed. Contact us or check with your family’s lawyer to learn the bail schedule, or “sentence enhancements”, for the act your loved one was arrested for. The bail bondsman –  Contacting Remedy Bail Bonds is the best course of action to determine the cost of the bond. We […]

Why is Bail Allowed/Legal?

Most people are familiar with the idea of bail and how it works, but there is more to bail than meets the eye. There is very important reason that it exists and it has to do with how the justice system works. The US has a justice system that allows people certain rights. That’s where bail comes in. What Does Bail Do? Bail allows people to get out of jail while they’re waiting to have their case taken to court. Bail as a legal right dates back hundreds of years and has been reformed many times over those centuries. Currently, US bail policy is the result of many years of legislators working to balance civil liberties with public safety. One of the biggest concerns of civil libertarians is that the bail system can discriminate against the poor. There have been reforms in US law over the years that ensure that people who don’t have a lot of cash on hand can get released from jail with as little financial burden as is reasonable. For this reason, Remedy Bail Bonds offers many different financing options including the lowest money down, collateral only, no collateral and easy payment plans. Of course, laws are living things and, when bail reform was addressed in the 1960s, it was good news for those who had spent long periods of time languishing in jail only to find out that the charges against them had been dropped or to get acquitted, meaning that they’d gone through all the financial and social distress of being held in jail for no reason at all. Conversely, there were problems with the 1960s bail reform that made it easy for violent and dangerous criminals to get out of jail. Finding The Balance Reforms introduced into laws regarding bail since the 1960s have made it possible […]

Do You Know Your Options?

  In the unfortunate circumstance that somebody you love is arrested and goes to jail you have a few options:   You can go directly to the Jail and pay the full bail amount as set by the judge. The Bail amount is typically determined by the Bail Schedule though the judge has final authority based on the specifics of the case and defendant.   You can hire a Bail Bonds Company and pay only a small percentage of the full bail amount. (that percentage is 10% as per California Law). For example if the bail amount was $5,000, instead of going directly to the jail and paying that full amount you could bring your loved one home for only $500 by working with a licensed Bail Agent.   You can leave them in Jail until their court process is completed. This can take several months and even years in some cases. You can imagine the avalanche of negative consequences this has; loss of employment/income, separation of family and all the extra stress and then there’s the court process itself… So why post Bail?   Posting Bail allows your loved one to be free (not in custody) on their court date. There is no disruption in their daily routine and they can return to work. They can properly prepare for the court dates . If no bail is posted, your loved one will appear on the court set court dates in county issued clothing/jumpsuit and handcuffs. Many times this will convey to the judge and jury that your loved one is already guilty or acclimated to the prison system greatly impacting their chances of a successful outcome. When your loved one is out on bail they can be equipped  and well represented at the court dates, wearing their own appropriate attire and therefore minimizing any undue bias. At Remedy Bail Bonds we make it easy to post bail. We understand […]

Posting Bail for DUI

If you or a loved one is arrested for DUI in San Diego it is now necessary to post a bail bond to be released from jail. The AB 109 bill has made it so that a person arrested fro DUI cannot be legally OR’d, which means released on their own recognizance. If it is the first DUI offense of the defendant, the bond according to the bail schedule is $2,500. By law this means somebody must come up with $250 (10 percent of the bail amount) and a cosigner to be released from jail. Often, bail bonds companies will allow the the arrestee to sign for themselves and pay upon release. A common problem occurring in San Diego with DUI arrests is that San Diego Police department does not always complete a background check on the arrestee before setting the bail amount. This leads to the bail being set at $2,500 (as for 1st offenses) when in reality it may be the 2nd, 3rd and so on arrest for the individual. The bail amount for a 2nd DUI offense is $10,000. The bail amount for a 3rd can range between $20,000 and $50,000.  A fourth DUI offense which is considered as a felony carries a bail of $100,000. These amounts are set according to the bail schedule although the judge always has the authority to change as he sees fit. The reason why this causes such a problem is that when the defendant shows up to court (out on bail for $2,500) they are greeted with a very unwelcomed surprise and are taken into custody unexpectedly. For this fact it is crucial that you have a trustworthy bail bonds company on your side. Remedy Bail Bonds is Southern California’s most trusted bail bonds company. We make it a point […]
