Felony Bail at Banning Justice Center

  • Find the charge that carries the steepest punishments and locate the bail amount for that charge.
  • Check the “Special Bail Section” to see if there is a larger amount that could apply. You'll have to use the larger amount if it applies.
  • Add bail for all enhancements of the original charge. Enhancements are special circumstances or additional charges that are a part of the original charge.
  • Bail bonds will have to be posted for each charge.
  • There are some cases in which the defendant will not be allowed to post bail until a hearing has taken place.

Bail From Suspicious Sources

In cases where the arresting officer suspects that the money being used for bail was gotten through illegal activity, the officer can file special paperwork asking that no bail be available to the defendant until a hearing has been held.

Misdemeanor Bail Calculations

  • If the defendant is charged with more than one offense, the highest bail amount for any single offense is to be used. Bail on separate cases will accumulate. Judges can adjust the bail amounts, as they see fit.

Bail Bond Rates at the Banning Jail

The state of California requires that all bail bond companies charge 10% of the total amount of bail, in order to post bond for a defendant. That means that if the bail is $20,000, the bail bondsman is required to charge $2,000 to post a bond in place of the bail. While this may still seem like a lot of money, it's far less than having to pay the entire amount. The rates the law requires for Federal and Immigration Bonds can be as high as 15 – 20%. But, all of these rates are set by statute, and all bail bond companies are required to charge the same amount.

California law allows for a discounted rate on bail bonds if the defendant retains a private attorney and pays the premium in full within 72 hours. These discounts are allowed for government union workers, members of the military, and AARP members. These discounts are determined by the surety company that is writing the bonds for the bail bond company.
