Bail Bonds in Encinitas, CA

Located along six miles of the Southern California Coast, Encinitas is well known for its beach culture and proud of its surfing history. The unspoiled beaches of Encinitas recently earned the town recognition as one of the top twenty surfing towns in the world by National Geographic magazine. Encinitas has been drawing surfers to its renowned beaches since the birth of surfing in the early 1920s and continues to celebrate the surf and beach culture through art and community events. 

“Surfin’ USA” at Swami’s Beach in Encinitas

Encinitas’ beach, Swami’s, served as part of the inspiration for the 1963 Beach Boys hit “Surfin’ USA.” Swami’s park and beach is a major surfing destination with particularly good swells during the winter months. While all skill levels are permitted to surf at Swami’s, the competition for the waves is so fierce that generally only more skilled surfers fight for space on the water.

The sandy beach is accessed by a steep wooden staircase that leads down from Swami Park. The beach is open to the public from 4 AM to 2 AM, but lifeguards are only present from 10 AM to 6 PM. Parking for the beach is accessed from Highway 101.

Hansen’s Surf Shop

San Diego County’s largest surf shop, Hansens, has called Encinitas home since 1961. Occupying more than 20,000 square feet of retail space, the shop was begun as a small, one-man operation by Don Hansen, a surfer and surfboard craftsman who got his start in the most unlikely of places, the midwest. Drawn to California by college surfing videos, Hansen hitchhiked to California in the 1950s and spent a decade surfing and learning the art of board creation. In 1961, Don Hansen moved his family and newly created surfboard label to the Encinitas community of Cardiff-by-the-Sea, and Hansen’s Surf Shop was born. Today, Hansen Surfboards are one of the most sought after brands of surfboards. The retail shop, Hansen’s Surf Shop, is still owned and operated by the Hansen family.

Encinitas Communities

When Encinitas was incorporated in 1986, the city was formed by bringing together five separate communities under a single corporation.

Old Encinitas

Old Encinitas is made up of the historic part of Encinitas, including the welcome arch, Swami’s Beach, and the La Paloma Theater.

New Encinitas

New Encinitas is comprised of the newer parts of town, including newer and larger homes, the Encinitas Ranch Golf Course, and a number of shopping centers.


The easternmost neighborhood of Encinitas, the community of Olivenhain is more rural than the rest of the city and includes a number of equestrian facilities. The Olivenhain neighborhood boasts an impressive network of trails throughout the community, used by both pedestrian and equestrians.


The Leucadia community is set along a series of bluffs along the coastline, overlooking beaches far below the steep, vertical cliffs. The steep cliffs create relatively secluded beaches, for which Leucadia is known. The community is also home to a number of eclectic shops and restaurants.


The southernmost neighborhood in Encinitas, Cardiff-by-the-Sea is generally referred to by its shortened name, Cardiff. Cardiff lays claim to a series of vibrant beaches, classic restaurants, and small market all in walking distance. The small community was named for the Wales community of Cardiff, at the insistence of the wife of the town’s founder. Many of the streets in the neighborhood also bear English names.

To figure out how much bail will be required to get someone released from jail, you can complete the felony bail worksheet found here.

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 for 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.

Bail Bonds in Encinitas

When the amount of bail required to get out of jail is more than you or your family can easily come up with, you need the services of a bail bondsman. A bail bondsman is licensed with the State of California and works with a Surety Company to post bonds with the court on your behalf. The court then holds the bond, which is a promise to pay the entire amount of the bail required should you fail to uphold the terms of your pretrial release. They do this in place of you having to pay the entire amount of bail and you are still allowed to go free until the legal proceedings against you have been concluded.

In return for this service, the defendant pays the bail bond company a fee, usually 10% of the entire bail amount. This fee is non-refundable. An important part of the agreement between the defendant and the bail bondsman is that the defendant will appear for all court proceedings, including hearings and the trial. Failure to adhere to the conditions of the pretrial release will result in the bond being revoked and the defendant returning to jail.

VC 23152(e) – DUI of Drugs in Encinitas

Driving under the influence of Drugs is a violation of the Vehicle Code 231452(e), which reads: “It is unlawful for a person who is under the influence of any drug to drive a vehicle.” It is very similar to driving under the influence of alcohol. One way that this charge differs from a regular “DUI” charge is that when an officer suspects the presence of drugs in someone's system, a breathalyzer test will not show drugs and a blood test will have to be ordered. Other evidence that can be used to charge someone with DUI of drugs includes the defendant's statements, behavior, and appearance.

DUI With Great Bodily Injury

California Vehicle Code 23153 VC deals with injuries caused by a person driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Code 23153 VC reads:

"(a) It is unlawful for a person, while under the influence of any alcoholic beverage to drive a vehicle and concurrently do any act forbidden by law, or neglect any duty imposed by law in driving the vehicle, which act or neglect proximately causes bodily injury to any person other than the driver. (b) It is unlawful for a person, while having 0.08 percent or more, by weight, of alcohol in his or her blood to drive a vehicle and concurrently do any act forbidden by law, or neglect any duty imposed by law in driving the vehicle, which act or neglect proximately causes bodily injury to any person other than the driver. . . . (e) It is unlawful for a person, while under the influence of any drug, to drive a vehicle and concurrently do any act forbidden by law, or neglect any duty imposed by law in driving the vehicle, which act or neglect proximately causes bodily injury to any person other than the driver."

Domestic Violence Bail Bonds

Domestic Violence is defined as “abuse committed against an adult or fully emancipated minor who is a spouse, former spouse, cohabitant, r person with whom the suspect has had a child or is having or has had a dating or engagement relationship.” (California Penal Code, Section 13700)

The term “domestic violence” can be applied to a lot of situations and in a lot of different ways. That's why it's so important to handle the disagreements in a way that will keep you out of trouble with the law.

Corporal Punishment of a Spouse or Cohabitant (PC 273.5)

When the law speaks of the “Corporal Injury of a Spouse or Cohabitant,” they mean harm that is intentionally inflicted on someone with whom the perpetrator has an “intimate relationship.”

The legal definition of Corporal Punishment of a Spouse or Cohabitant is: “willfully inflicting a physical injury that causes a 'traumatic condition' on an intimate partner.” Let's define a few of these terms, to understand better what could be considered corporal injury.
