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.

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.
