How Bail Works in Los Angeles
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.
How Much Is Bail at the Central Arraignment Courthouse Courthouse?
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.
