Bail at The Central Jail Complex

Bail is an amount of money that the court hold onto to ensure that you'll show up to court to see your charges through to the end. Being arrested and charged with a crime is just the first step in a long, legal process that you'll have to work through to get your life back to normal. You'll have to show up in court for arraignment, a preliminary hearing, and then a trial, as well as a number of meetings with prosecutors and attorneys along the way.

The court system doesn't want to have to keep everyone in jail throughout this process. But, they do want to make sure that those who have been charged with a crime will show up when they're supposed to for all of these different proceedings. Bail is one way that the court ensures this will happen. By setting an amount for “bail” a person can deposit money with the court that allows them to get out of jail to work and live, while their case is getting through the legal system. And, they get that money back once they've completed everything and their case has come to a conclusion.

Penal Code 1275 Holds on Bail

Penal Code Section 1275.1 states that if there is probable cause to suspect that the money or property being used to post bail may come from criminal activity, bail will not be accepted. This is called a 1275 Hold.

Any person who plays a part in the arresting or prosecution process can place the PC 1275 Hold on the bail. This means that they believe the money being used to bail a person out of jail comes from illegal activity. The money may be believed to come from drug dealing, gang-related activities, embezzlement, theft, or extortion. Any of these activities would make the money that came from them ineligible for paying bail.

How to Bail Someone Out of Jail in Santa Ana, CA

For many people, it can be difficult to come up with the entire amount of money that is due for bail. Not only is a great deal of money involved, but that money will be tied up with the court system for a long time. Some cases can take over a year to come to an end. After the case has ended, it can sometimes take some time to get the money back from the court system.

Most people, facing a substantial amount of bail, just don't have the cash to pay the bail outright. A person can post property as a form of bail, but the amount of value in the property has to be double the value of the bail being sought. Often, it's easier to get help from a bail bondsman like Mr. Nice Guy (844)400-2245.

A bail bondsman is a person who is licensed by the state, working with an agency, who can post a “bond” for you, instead of the full amount of your bail. The bail bondsman works with a Surety Company, who is a little like an insurance company. They have certain rules for issuing bonds to help people get out of jail. The person who is in jail pays a fee and the bail bondsman pays the bail.

Then, the person who has been charged with a crime can get back to their job and family, while they wait for trial. The person who had the bond posted for them is promising the bail bondsman that they will continue to show up for all of the hearings and proceedings required by their charges so that the bondsman can get the bail money back from the court.
