Getting Bail at the Blythe Jail

If you, or someone you know, is being charged with a crime and held at the jail in Blythe, California, posting bail is usually the fastest way to get them, or yourself, back home to friends and loved ones. Bail is an amount of money that the court holds onto in order to ensure that a person shows up for court dates and hearing, etc. The amount of bail that is required will vary depending on the charges. The bail schedule is set in for each county and should be posted at the Blythe Jail where you can find out how much bail you will need to post.

To figure out how much bail you will need you must first find the most serious, or “base” charge, that you're facing. This is usually the charge that carries the highest jail time or fine. This charge becomes the basis of the bail.

Next, you'll need to find the “enhancements” (additional charges) and the bail that applies to the enhancements. Once you've added all of the base charge and enhancement bail amounts together, you'll have the amount of bail that will be required to get you out and home to friends and family.

For help in determining the amount of bail and posting it faster, call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds. Mr. Nice Guy and his team of licensed professionals can help you bond out of jail for a fraction of the cost of paying your bail in full. Call (844)400-2245 to start the bail bond process immediately.

It is helpful to have the full name, birth date, and booking number when you call. This allows Mr. Nice Guy's licensed bail bondsmen post bail faster for you or your loved one.
