Life in Mission Viejo
Situated in the Saddleback Valley of Southern California, Mission Viejo presents an almost picture-perfect vision of what life in Southern California is all about. Developed from land that was once a part of the Rancho Mission Viejo land grant, owned by the famed “Don Juan,” Mission Viejo is the largest, master-planned community in the nation. Only Highlands Ranch, Colorado comes close to it in size (among master-planned communities). The city is primarily residential, though a few office buildings and businesses are located within the city limits.
The winding streets of Mission Viejo are peaceful and quiet and have been recognized for their high number of trees by the Nation Arbor Day Foundation. The city has also drawn the attention of the FBI, earning the “Safest City in California” rating every year since 2006, and one of the top ten safest cities in the nation for those years, as well. (Ratings are based on population, and Mission Viejo was rated the safest city among cities under 100,000.)
History of Mission Viejo
In the mid-1840s, John Forster, an Englishman turned Mexican citizen, was given several large land grants in California, including Rancho Mision Viejo. Though he was born in Liverpool, England, John Forster immigrated to Mexico in 1830, moved to California in 1833, and became a Mexican citizen in 1836. Although he was a Mexican citizen, Forster was instrumental in helping the U.S. Military forces in retaking Los Angeles during the Mexican-American war.
As the rest of Southern California was developed during the mid-1900s, the Mission Viejo area was largely dismissed as being“undevelopable.” Its hilly contours had made urbanization difficult until an urban planner named Donald Bren saw the possibilities. He envisioned roads that ran through the valleys, with homes on the hillsides. Bren developed a master plan for the area and by 1980, much of the what is now Mission Viejo had been completed. In fact, the area became so much in demand during the 1970s and 1980s, that building sites were often selling out before construction could even begin on the homes.
The City of Mission Viejo is almost uniformly designed in Spanish mission style, with an emphasis on adobe-style walls and barrel-tile roofs. While Donald Bren also created developments in Irvine and Newport Beach, Mission Viejo is often cited as the first and greatest evidence of his obsession with Spanish Architecture.

What is Bail?
Most people do not want to sit in jail while the lawyers and judges work things out. They have work and families that need their attention. So the court set up the bail process, as a way of ensuring that if someone got out of jail, they would still show up for hearings and trial.
Bail money is deposited with the court and then returned to the defendant once the charges have been resolved. If someone else pays the bail on the defendant's behalf, the bail is returned to the person who paid it to the court. Property can also be used to pay for bail. But, if a property is used, the value of the property must be twice the amount of the bail being asked.
Who Sets Bail in Mission Viejo?
The Superior Court of California in Orange County sets and publishes the bail schedule for Mission Viejo, updating it each year.

How do I Post Bail?
Cash bail payments may be made at the IRC cashiering office located at the Central Jail Complex. The payments may be made in cash, cashier's checks, personal checks, money orders or traveler's check.
Cashier's Checks For Paying Bail
Cashier checks will have to be verified with the issuing financial institution and individuals paying with a cashier's check should bring along contact information for the bank employee who issued the cashier's check. The cashier check should be made for the exact amount of the payment and payable to the Orange County Sheriff's Department.
Personal Checks For Paying Bail
Personal checks are accepted for paying bail when the preprinted name and address on the check match a valid California ID. Checks must be issued for a California bank with a California address. Personal Checks are only accepted for payments of up to $7,500.
Traveler's Checks For Paying Bail
Traveler's checks will only be accepted at the IRC cashiering office if they are signed in front of a cashier, are for the exact amount of the payment, are made payable to the Orange County Sheriff's Department, and are drawn on an acceptable financial institution. Have valid ID when presenting a traveler's check for a bail payment.
Bail Payment Verification in Orange County
All bail requirements should be verified before payment is made. You can verify the name, booking number and bail amount owed by calling Inmate Records at (714) 647-4666. Sometimes only cash or check bail may be accepted for a specific inmate. Inmate Records can advise you as to the acceptable forms of payment available for your inmate.
Company or business checks are not an acceptable form of bail payment and only cash will be accepted for bail issued by courts outside of Orange County.
What if I Can't Afford Bail?
Arrests don't often happen in a vacuum. Often, the presence of legal trouble in a person's life means that there are other stressful situations going on, as well. Often these stressful situations have to do with financial difficulties and shortages of funds. This can mean that coming up with the amount necessary for paying bail is difficult, if not impossible.
That's where a bail bondsman comes in.
A bail bond agency, like Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds, works with a surety company to file a bond with the court in order to get you out of jail for a lot less money than the total amount of your bail.
What are Bail Bonds?
Many times the amount of money required for bail is more than someone can conveniently come up with. If you don't have friends or relatives from whom you can borrow the money for bail, you may need to enlist the help of a bail bondsman like Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds. Mr. Nice Guy and his team of licensed, professional bail bondsmen can help you negotiate the bail process and get out of jail fast.
A ail bondsman will pay the bail on your behalf, and you pay the bondsman a fee, usually 10% of the total cost of bail. When the case is resolved, the court will return the money to the person who paid it, in this case the bail bondsmen. He keeps the fee as payment for helping to secure bail more quickly and for assistance to the court in tracking and ensuring the compliance of defendants who are out on bail.
Who Can Pay For My Bail?
If the court believes that the money being used to pay your bail came from illegal activity, they can hold you in jail until they can have a hearing about the money being used to post bail. The court gives a person the opportunity to post bail if they believe the person is likely to show up for hearings and trial because of the money they paid for bail. If the money being used for bail was gotten by illegal means, then the court has good reason to believe that there is enough additional money that the bail won't ensure cooperation with the legal system in the future.
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, 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.
Call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds today for help with your PC 1275 Hearing.
