Bail at the Riverside County Jail

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 Banning Jail where you can find out how much bail you will need to post.

To figure out how much bail you will need:

  • First, find the charge that carries the highest potential jail time and fines.
  • Use that charge to determine the basis of the bail.
  • Now find any “enhancements” or additional charges and the bail that applies to those enhancements.
  • Add all of that together to find the total amount of bail that will be required.

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.
