How much does it cost to get out of jail in Santa Ana, CA?

If you or someone you care about find themselves behind bars in Santa Ana, CA, the first question on your mind will be, “How do I get out of jail fast?” The fastest way out of jail is to pay bail. Bail is the amount of money held by the court to allow a person to go free ahead of their hearings and trial. How much bail is required depends on the charges for which a person is being held.

To find out how much bail it will take to get out of jail in Santa Ana, you’ll need to consult the bail schedule for Orange County and add up the bail for all of the charges. You can also call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds at (844) 400-2245 and one of the experienced bail bond agents will help you figure out exactly how much money it will take to get someone out of jail.

Often a person is charged with more than one crime and the bail amounts for each charge will need to be added together to figure out how much money it will cost to get out of jail. When this amount is high, as it often tends to be, it may be more money than the defendant or their family can easily come up with. This is when the services of a bail bondsman like Mr Nice Guy can be of the most help.

Bail Bonds in Santa Ana, CA

Mr Nice Guy Bail Bonds can arrange for a bail bond to be filed with the court at a fraction of the cost of cash bail. 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 12%. 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.

Who has the Best Rates on Bail Bonds in Santa Ana?

Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds has the best rates on bail bonds. How can we make that statement when all bail bond companies are required to charge the same 10% fee? Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds uses a Surety Company that allows them to discount bail bonds to just 7% if the defendant retains a private attorney and pays the premium within the first 72-hours. There's no lower rate available, anywhere.

There is always just one flat rate, no interest, no hidden fees, no surprises. Other companies may advertise the same 10% rate that everyone is required to charge. But, what they don't tell you is all the other fees you'll end up paying. Mr. Nice Guy never charges these additional fees, so you'll end up paying a lower rate, no matter what the other guys are advertising.

Assault & Battery Bail Bonds in Santa Ana

Assault and battery are often used together, which might lead you to think that the two charges are the same, or, at least, two parts of a single charge. But, the truth is much more complicated than that. While the two are related, and you could be charged with both, they are two distinct and separate crimes.

The Definition of Battery - PC 242

Battery is defined as the willful, unlawful use of force against another person. This is a violation of Penal Code 242 and must have three separate elements:

  1. The act must be willful and unlawful
  2. Force or violence is used
  3. The willful use of violence or force is used against another person.

In other words, you have to intend to use force or violence, it has to involve another person, but it doesn't have to actually cause any damage, injury, or harm. In fact, you don't even have to touch the body of the other person, in order to be guilty of battery. If you touch anything the is “intimately connected” to the other person, like their clothing or something they are holding, in a disrespectful or rude way, you could be charged with battery. 

The Definition of Assault - PC 240

The crime of assault doesn't require any physical contact. You may heard, or even used, the phrase, “He (or she) assaulted me!” in a situation where someone was actually hurt by physical violence. However, assault is not necessarily an attack of any kind, but merely the attempt to make unlawful contact with the intent of doing harm.

There are three components of assault:

  1. There must be an unlawful attempt
  2. There must be ability
  3. There must be another person upon whom violence or injury was threatened or attempted

“Attempt” means that someone tried to do something; not that they thought about it or wanted to, but that they tried.

Felony Assault & Battery

Assaults that can be charged as felonies are violations of PC 241.1, PC 241.2, PC 241.4, PC 241.7, and PC 241.8 and include assault against:

  • doctors and nurses
  • emergency medical technicians and paramedics
  • school employees
  • firefighters
  • lifeguards
  • animal control officers
  • highway workers
  • members of the United States military, if the assault is motivated by the fact of service in the military
  • public transportation employees
  • probation department employees

Felony assault can be punished by up to three years in jail, a fine of up to $2,000, and probation up to three years.

Felony battery penalties include up to three years in county jail or state prison, depending on the offender's history, a fine of up to $2,000 ($5,000 if the victim is a juror or $10,000 if the victim is a public transport worker or passenger), and up to three years probation.

Aggravated Assault & Battery

Aggravated assault includes assault with a deadly weapon or assault where there is an intent to commit a felony such as rape or murder.

Aggravated battery is a violation of PC 243(d) and can be called battery with serious bodily injury or aggravated battery. This is the result of battery that caused serious injury to another person, making it different from simple battery where no injury needs to have been inflicted in order to be charged.

Domestic Violence Bail Bonds in Santa Ana, CA

A charge of domestic violence will land you in jail, at least until you can post bail and answer the charges against you in court. For domestic violence charges in Orange County, CA, the accused person will be taken to the Central Jail Complex in Santa Ana to be processed and charged. Once the paperwork has been filed and a mug shot and fingerprints taken, the defendant will be either pay cash bail or be taken to the county jail located in Santa Ana to wait for a hearing and trial.

California Penal Code, Section 13700

Domestic Violence is defined as “abuse committed against an adult or fully emancipated minor who is a spouse, former spouse, cohabitant, or person with whom the suspect has had a child or is having or has had a dating or engagement relationship.” (California Penal Code, Section 13700)

The definition of abuse can include:

  • Physical Abuse
  • Verbal Abuse
  • Abusing Trust
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Emotional Abuse
  • Psychological Abuse
  • Coercion
  • Harassment
  • Economic control
  • Threats and Intimidation
  • Destruction of Property
  • Isolation

As you can see, the term “domestic violence” can be applied to a lot of situations and in a lot of different ways. That's why it's so important to handle the disagreements in a way that will keep you out of trouble with the law.

Other Names For Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence isn't the only charge that can come up when people who have or used to have a relationship fight and the police get involved. There are several other charges that are closely related to “domestic violence.” They are:

  • Corporal Injury of Spouse
  • Corporal Injury of a Cohabitant
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Spousal Abuse
  • Violation of Penal Code 273.5

Corporal Punishment of a Spouse or Cohabitant

When we say corporal punishment in this sense, we aren't talking about the kind of punishment a child might receive at the hands of a principle or angry parent. When the law speaks of the “Corporal Injury of a Spouse or Cohabitant,” they mean harm that is intentionally inflicted on someone with whom the perpetrator has an “intimate relationship.”

The legal definition of Corporal Punishment of a Spouse or Cohabitant is: “willfully inflicting a physical injury that causes a 'traumatic condition' on an intimate partner.” Let's define a few of these terms, to understand better what could be considered corporal injury.

Who Qualifies as an Intimate Partner?

  • A spouse
  • A Former Spouse
  • A Cohabitant (someone you live with)
  • A Former Cohabitant (someone you used to live with)
  • A Boyfriend (including same-sex boyfriends)
  • A Girlfriend (including same-sex girlfriends)
  • A Fiance'
  • A Former Fiance'
  • The Parent of Your Child

In other words, anyone you have had a romantic or intimate relationship with, at any point, for any length of time, would be considered an intimate partner.

The other term in question here is “physical injury.” What exactly constitutes a “physical injury?” The law says it is “any injury that leaves a mark, such as a bruise or a cut.”

What if I Can’t Afford Bail?

Bail amounts in the State of California can often be quite high. It can be difficult for most people to come up with the cash necessary to bail out jail directly through the court system. Bail bonds can help.

A bail bond agency contracts through a surety company to provide a bond to the court on your behalf. The bond ensures compliance with all court-ordered appearances in return for a small portion (usually 10%) of the total cost of bail.

When bail amounts are high, the amount needed to secure a bail bond can also be quite high. The State of California sets minimum bail bond fee requirements that all agencies must abide by, meaning that each agency must charge a minimum of 7% for bail bonds, and most bail situations require a 10% fee.  At Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds, the dedicated bail agents understand that not everyone has the ready cash to pay for either bail or bail bonds, but still need help to get out of jail. Mr. Nice Guy offers a variety of payment plans and accepts a number of payment methods.

Bail Payment Plans

Mr. Nice Guy understands the financial difficulties that incarceration can place on a family. When the very person responsible for supporting the family is behind bars, it can become doubly difficult to come up with the money needed to get out of jail. Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds offers bail bond assistance in the form of bail bond loans and bail bond payment plans, that can help get individuals out of jail and back to work in the community.

For more information about bail payment plans, call Mr. Nice Guy at (844) 400-2245.

Bail Bond Financing Options

The State of California sets the rates that companies must charge for bail bonds. Under most circumstances, the rate for bail bonds is 10% of the total cost of bail. Sometimes, a bail rate as low as 7% can be arranged. Mr. Nice Guy makes every effort to help clients qualify for the cheapest bail bond rate available. And, when even the cheapest bail bonds are too much to pay for right now, Mr. Nice Guy will work with you to establish a payment plan with a low down payment requirement.

1% Bail Bonds in Santa Ana, Orange County

You’ve probably been hearing a lot about 1% bail bonds, lately. It seems everyone is offering bail bonds at lower and lower rates. It’s important to note, however, that the actual cost of bail bonds remains much the same as it ever has been. The 1% bail bond rates that you see advertised are merely a down payment for bail bonds, and the rest of the bail bond fee must still be paid.

With that being said, however, 1% bail bonds is still a great way to help hardworking people get out of jail and back to work when they otherwise couldn’t afford to secure a bail bond, at all. A 1% down payment (even nothing down in some cases) can get an individual out of jail and back to work, supporting themselves and their family, while they work through the legal part of the charges they were arrested for.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • The arrest process can take several hours depending on the location, arresting agency and time of day. Typically, once a person is arrested they will be brought into the police or sheriff station and booked. The booking process generally consists of being searched, any personal property being cataloged and fingerprinted. The person’s fingerprints will be put into a computer system that checks for warrants and pending criminal charges. The fingerprints can take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours to come back. After the fingerprint reports are confirmed, a bail amount will be set and bail can be posted.
  • The Bail amounts set by courts are often far too expensive for most people to afford. By hiring a bail bonds company you can pay a small fee called a “premium” and have the bail agent post the entire bail amount. In addition, by using a bail bond the process of bail being posted and the person being released is much easier, faster and less complicated than trying to post the bond on your own. In addition, if a bond is not posted the person will have to stay in jail until the case has been resolved which can often take months, sometimes years. Allowing a person to post bond and be released from jail means they can go back to their families, jobs and take care of their obligations.

Bail is an amount of money that the court holds 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.

Once you've been charged with a crime, the bail schedule for each crime should be posted at the jail where you are processed. Many times a person is charged with more than one crime. Each charge will incur its own bail amount. In order to get out of jail, you will have to pay the entire amount of the combined bail, for all of the crimes with which you have been charged. The amount varies, depending on the seriousness of the charges.

Some examples of bail in California are:

In California, when you've been charged with a crime, you'll need to post bail in order to get out of jail while you await your charges. The court will hold the amount of bail money that you've deposited with them and return it to you when your case has reached its close.

There are different types of bail in California. Bail for appearance in California is for crimes only involving state violations. There are also Federal violations which may require bail, if you commit, or are accused of committing a federal crime. Immigration violations can also require a substantial bond if it is granted. Depositing bail with the court, for any of these types of bail or bond, allows a person to get out of jail, and the money will be returned, if that person follows through on all of their legal proceedings.

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 bond company like Mr Nice Guy Bail Bonds. 

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.

Bail premium is the term used to refer to the fee charged by the bail bondsman when arranging for the bail bond on your behalf. The fee structure for the bail premium is set by the State and ranges from 7% to 10%, typically. This fee is non-refundable and reimburses the bail bondsman and the surety company for the time and trouble of arranging and managing bail bonds

The time it takes for someone to be released from jail after their bail has been posting will vary, depending on a variety of factors. What jail they are in, how busy the jail is, and what time of day they were arrested will all play a role in determining how long it will take for a defendant to be released after their bail has been paid. For more information on how long it will take in your case, please call Mr Nice Guy Bail Bonds to discuss your unique situation. The current Covid-19 protocols also play a factor in release times.
