Bail at the Joshua Tree Law and Justice Complex
Bail is an amount of money required by the courts to obtain a release from jail. The court holds onto the money until the court case has come to a close, and then returns the money to the person who paid it, provided the defendant has shown up for all of their hearings and court proceedings. Bail is set by the county and posted at each detention facility. If you, or someone you know, is in the Joshua Tree Law and Justice Complex jail, call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds for help in posting bail and getting back home as soon as possible.
How Much is Bail at the Joshua Tree Courthouse?

If the defendant is charged with more than one offense, the highest bail amount for any single offense is to be used. Bail on separate cases will accumulate. Judges can adjust the bail amounts, as they see fit.
