Life in Costa Mesa

Once a part of the Rancho San Antonio, Costa Mesa has grown from a primarily agricultural community of around 16,000 at its inception to a booming 110,000 residents, with an economy that relies heavily on tourism, service industries, and light manufacturing. The residents of fifty years ago likely wouldn't recognize their open fields and acres of citrus trees transformed into the thriving and busy city that Costa Mesa is today.

The epicenter for retail services in Costa Mesa is the South Coast Plaza. Established in 1967, the South Coast Plaza has grown from an original 70 stores to over 320 stores, luxury boutiques, and restaurants. The Plaza offers a luxury shopping experience, featuring major brands like Tiffany & Co, Chanel, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, and Hermes. World-class restaurants, small cafes, and outdoor bars provide space to relax and take a break from shopping.

Patrol Area 1

Patrol Area One includes all of the area inside of these boundaries: Joann Street and Victoria Street to the north, Irvine Avenue to the east, 15th and 16 streets to the south, and the Santa Ana River to the west. Area 1 is commanded (in 2018) by Lt. Joyce LaPointe, who has worked with the Costa Mesa Police Department since 1997.

Patrol Area 2

Patrol Area Two is bounded by Tustin Avenue to the east, Joann and Victoria Street to the south, Sunflower Avenue to the North, and the Santa Ana River to the west. Area two includes the South Coast Plaza, the OC Fairgrounds, Orange Coast College, and TeWinkle Park.

The Costa Mesa City Jail is designed to house defendants for 24 to 48 hours, either before court, prior to release, or prior to transfer to a county facility.

Bail at the Costa Mesa Jail

Cash bail is a system that has been used for the pretrial release of defendants in the United States since before the Revolutionary War. When a person is accused of a crime, if they do not wish to remain in jail until their trial, a set amount of money, or bail, is required to be held by the court to ensure that the defendant will appear for court hearings and trials, until their legal case has come to an end. Once the case has been concluded, the court will then return the money to the person who paid the bail.

Bail is set by a judge. A bail schedule is agreed upon each year, for each county, which allows arresting offices to see how much the bail for a specific crime will typically be. Without a bail schedule, arrested persons would have to wait for a hearing before a judge to learn what their bail would be so that they could begin to make arrangements to post bail and get out of jail. Having a bail schedule available at each jail or processing center, allows defendants to post their bail much more quickly than they typically would be able to do if they had to wait for a bail hearing.

In Costa Mesa, the Uniform Bail Schedule is set each year by the Superior Court of California, County of Orange. This schedule includes information about the most common crimes for which people in Costa Mesa are arrested.

How Much is Bail in Costa Mesa?

To determine how much bail is required to get someone out of jail, first determine the most serious crime with which they are being charged, or the crime with the highest bail amount required. Then, add to that any additional charges or enhancements to the charge. This final total is the amount that will be required to get you or someone you care about out of jail on bail.

Immigration Bail Bonds in Costa Mesa

What happens when you, or someone you love, is arrested for being in the country illegally? The unknown is always scary. Here at Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds, we are available to help you and your loved ones navigate the Federal Bond process and to keep your family together as your immigration case makes its way through the immigration courts.

There are four types of immigration bonds:

  • G1 – Delivery Bond. This is a bond conditioned upon the delivery of an Alien and is the most common type of bond. It is used to ensure that a person will comply with a deportation order. A delivery bond allows an individual the opportunity to spend time with friends and family, as well as consult with an immigration attorney, prior to his or her court hearing.
  • G2 – Public Safety Bond. This bond is to ensure that the alien will not become a public charge. In other words, it ensures that the government will be reimbursed if a bonded alien receives any type of public assistance.
  • G3 – Voluntary Departure Bond. This bond is conditioned upon the voluntary departure of an alien and is used to ensure that the person returns to his or her home country in compliance with the conditions of the court order. A voluntary departure bond allows a detainee the opportunity to leave the country voluntarily within a specified time frame and gives the individual a chance to spend some time with family, make arrangements for themselves, and to leave under less stressful, less hurried circumstances. However, if the person chooses not to leave the country as agreed, the bond is forfeit and the person subject to pursuit, incarceration, and forcible deportation.
  • G4 – Order of Supervision Bond. This bond ensures that the individual complies with all conditions of the order of supervision and that he or she surrenders for removal.

A Delivery Bond and Voluntary Departure Bond are the two most common types. For help in understanding the bond process and procedures in Santa Ana, call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds today. (949) 239-3766

Is “Posting Bail” The Same As Getting “Bail Bonds?”

Posting bail simply means paying the money, cash or property, to the court system to obtain release from jail until the court case can be completed. 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.

It is often easier, and less expensive, to seek the help of a bail bondsman who can arrange to have a “bail bond” placed with the court on your behalf. 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.

Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds has offices located throughout Southern California and can have a licensed bail bondsman by your side in minutes to help you through the bail process and place a bail bond for you and get you home fast.

What if I Can't Afford Bail?

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 (949) 239-3766.

How Can I Pay For 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.

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.

California state law requires that the bail bondsman charge a 10% premium on bail, in order to post your bond. Sometimes that's just more than you can afford. Mr. Nice Guy understands that bail can be expensive. There are agents standing by at locations near you, to help you get out of jail for a fraction of the cost of bail. If you can't afford the premium, don't sweat it! Mr. Nice Guy has payment plans that can help get you out of jail today, back to work tomorrow, and you can pay as you can afford it.
