Jury Service at the San Bernardino Justice Center

Call (909) 884-1858 after 5:00 PM the day before you are required to report to the San Bernardino Justice Center for jury duty. A recorded message will let you know if you are required to report or call in the next day.
For all other San Bernardino Jury locations, call (866) 402- JURY (5879) after 5:00PM the day before you are required to report, to learn if you must report or call in the next day.

To defer your jury duty, call (866) 402-JURY (5879). You will be required to provide you Juror ID number, located on your summons.

Bail at Victorville District Courthouse
Bail is an amount of money that the court hold onto to ensure that you'll show up to court to see your charges through to the end. Being arrested and charged with a crime is just the first step in a long, legal process that you'll have to work through to get your life back to normal. You'll have to show up in court for arraignment, a preliminary hearing, and then a trial, as well as a number of meetings with prosecutors and attorneys along the way.
The court system doesn't want to have to keep everyone in jail throughout this process. But, they do want to make sure that those who have been charged with a crime will show up when they're supposed to for all of these different proceedings. Bail is one way that the court ensures this will happen. By setting an amount for “bail” a person can deposit money with the court that allows them to get out of jail to work and live, while their case is getting through the legal system. And, they get that money back once they've completed everything and their case has come to a conclusion.
How Much is Bail in Victorville?
Once you've been charged with a crime, the bail schedule for each crime should be posted at the jail where you are processed. Many times a person is charged with more than one crime. Each charge will incur its own bail amount. In order to get out of jail, you will have to pay the entire amount of the combined bail, for all of the crimes with which you have been charged. The amount varies, depending on the seriousness of the charges.

What Happens If I Don't Show Up For Court?
A bail agreement is a contract between the defendant and the bail bond company. The agreement outlines the obligations the defendant has to make court appearances, as well as complete a payment plan and pay any other fees that are involved. If a defendant fails to show up for court appearances, or if they leave the area while released on bail, this is called “Bail Skipping.” When a defendant misses a scheduled court date or doesn't comply with court-mandated conditions, the court will issue a bench warrant, and the bond will be forfeited.
