Escondido Bail Bonds

Bail Bonds in Escondido

Nestled in a shallow valley twenty miles east of the Southern Coast of California, Escondido is one of the oldest cities in San Diego County. Originally incorporated in 1888, the area was a primarily agricultural community, growing Muscat grapes, olives, walnuts, citrus, and avocados. Once a small farming community, the city is growing at a rapid pace, filling the valley with unincorporated communities like Jesmond Dene, Hidden Meadows, Felicita Park, and Rincon Del Diablo. Just north of Escondido lies the Valley Center community, where the San Pasqual Band of Diegueno Mission Indians operates the Valley View Casino.

The Escondido Valley enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate, with warm summers, cool winters, and about fifteen inches of rain each year. The precipitation levels can vary drastically from year to year and aren’t enough to support agricultural development in the area. In 1895, a dam was constructed, forming Lake Wohlford and ensuring sufficient irrigation water to support an increasing number of residents and agricultural development.

Jesmond Dene in Escondido

Jesmond Dene lies on the east side of Interstate 15, just north of Escondido. The small community is named after Jesmond Dene, a public park in Newcastle upon Tyne, a city in Northern England. The crowning jewel of the Jesmond Dene community is the Jesmond Dene Park, operated by the City of Escondido. The 35-acre park boasts two lighted baseball fields, as well as an additional unlighted field, a concession stand, areas for picnicking or barbecuing, public restrooms, and a playground for children. The park is open every day during daylight hours, with the exception of the lighted baseball fields, which close at 10:30 PM.

Felicita Park

The Felicita Park community lies just south of Escondido and west of the I15 Interstate. Centered on the Escondido park for which the community is named, the area is built on the site of a former Kumeyaay Indian village. Today, the County Park of Felicita is still a prime area for discovering centuries-old artifacts and geographical evidence of the former inhabitants of Felicita, including grinding holes, areas of rock where Native Americans would grind grains to make flour.

Today, the Felicita County Park offers a number of hiking trails among the ancient oak groves, a year-round creek that bears the same name, two playgrounds and seven picnic areas which require a reservation for use. The park also offers public restrooms and a small park museum that educates visitors about the area and the Diegueno Indian woman, Felicia, for whom the park was named.

Bail Bonds in Escondido

If you've been charged with a crime in Encinitas, the bail schedule will be posted at the Vista Detention Facility where you are booked. Many times when 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. The full bail schedule can be viewed here.

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.

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 Escondido

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.
