What is a PC 1275 Bail Hold
In order to understand what a PC 1275 hold is, a person must first understand the bail bond process.
Bail is an amount of money that the court hold 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.

In addition, it is a good idea to have six months of credit or debit card statements for the card or cards used to pay the bond companies fee.

How Much is Bail for PC 1275
Once a person has 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.
To figure out how much bail will be required to get someone released from jail, you can complete the felony bail worksheet found here.
You will have to follow several steps:
- List all of the offenses for which a defendant is being charged.
- Find the charge with the highest bail schedule amount.
- If the arrestee is charged with more than one offense, on separate dates or against separate victims, list the amounts of the bail required fro those charges and add them to the original charge.
- Next find if there are any enhancements that require additional bail. Enhancements include things like:
- Gang-related offenses
- Offenses committed with a weapon
- Does the defendant have any prior convictions?
- Has the arrestee been in prison during the past five years?
- Is the victim under 15 or over 65?
- After finding all base charges and all enhancements, add all of these amounts together to find the total amount of bail that will be required to bail someone out of jail.

How Bail Works in California
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.
What is the Difference Between Posting Bail and Posting a Bond?
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 bondsman like Mr. Nice Guy (844)400-2245.
Penal Code 1275 Holds on Bail
Penal Code Section 1275.1 states that if there is probable cause to suspect that the money or property being used to post bail may come from criminal activity, bail will not be accepted. This is called a 1275 Hold.
Any person who plays a part in the arresting or prosecution process can place the PC 1275 Hold on the bail. This means that they believe the money being used to bail a person out of jail comes from illegal activity. The money may be believed to come from drug dealing, gang-related activities, embezzlement, theft, sex trafficking, pimping, pandering or extortion. Any of these activities would make the money that came from them ineligible for paying bail.
Bail is offered as a way to ensure that an individual shows up for all of the court proceedings surrounding his or her charges. The court assumes that illegal funds being used to pay for bail means that they won't care enough about the money to continue to appear for court proceedings, should the court allow them to be free on bail.
PC 1275 Hearings
If a 1275 Hold has been placed on someone's bail, a hearing will be held to determine whether or not the money that will be used to pay the bail is, in fact, from illegal sources. In order to prove that the money is “clean,” a person will need to bring bank and credit card statements, bill payment statements, car payment information, tax returns, and proof of income to their PC 1275 Hearing.
It is advisable to have an attorney and a bail bondsman with you, when you appear for your 1275 Hearing. You can also bring anyone with you who can testify as to the source of your income and help give clarity to your financial situation.
