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.
However, it is often difficult for defendants to come up with the total amount of bail required. This is when you need to call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds.

If this 10% is still more than you can come up with quickly, Mr. Nice Guy and his team of licensed, friendly professionals will work with you to create a repayment plan.
Sometimes, this payment plan can require as little as No Money Down!

Penal Code 1275 Holds on Bail at the Men's Central Jail
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, 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 a1275 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.
