Payment Plans for Bail Bonds in San Diego Jail
In California, when you've been charged with a crime, you'll need to post bail in order to get out of jail while you await your charges. The court will hold the amount of bail money that you've deposited with them and return it to you when your case has reached its close.
There are different types of bail in California. Bail for appearance in California is for crimes only involving state violations. There are also Federal violations which may require bail, if you commit, or are accused of committing a federal crime. Immigration violations can also require a substantial bond if it is granted. Depositing bail with the court, for any of these types of bail or bond, allows a person to get out of jail, and the money will be returned, if that person follows through on all of their legal proceedings.
However, it is often difficult for defendants to come up with the total amount of bail required. This is when you need to call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds. A Bail Bond agent is able to post the bail amount for you, in return for a premium, generally 10%. If this 10% is still more than you can come up with quickly, Mr. Nice Guy and his team of licensed, friendly professionals will work with you to create a repayment plan.
Sometimes, this payment plan can require as little as No Money Down!
It's important that you continue to fulfill your bond requirements and make the payments as agreed, in order to avoid further legal complications, but having payment options makes it much easier to obtain bail bonds with Mr. Nice Guy!

Immigration bonds are a form of Federal Bonds and are somewhat different from the bail bonds required for local criminal charges. However, if any criminal charges were made at the time of arrest, a California State Appearance Bond would need to be made at the same time. The rates for Federal Bonds range from 12% to 20%, depending on the charges and the amount of the bond required. The premium for appearance bonds is 10%, though discounts can be negotiated for people who have retained a private attorney, members of the military, and members of some other groups.
Spanish speaking bondsmen are available and most other languages can be accommodated.

Penal Code 1275 Holds on Bail in San Diego
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.
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.

What if I Can't Afford Bail in San Diego?
A bail bondsman is a person who is licensed by the state, working with an agency, who can post a “bond” for you, instead of the full amount of your bail. The bail bondsman works with a Surety Company, who is a little like an insurance company. They have certain rules for issuing bonds to help people get out of jail. The person who is in jail pays a fee and the bail bondsman pays the bail.
Then, the person who has been charged with a crime can get back to their job and family, while they wait for trial. The person who had the bond posted for them is promising the bail bondsman that they will continue to show up for all of the hearings and proceedings required by their charges so that the bondsman can get the bail money back from the court.
California state law requires that the bail bondsman charge a 10% premium on bail, in order to post your bond. Sometimes that's just more than you can afford. Mr. Nice Guy understands that bail can be expensive. There are agents standing by at locations near you, to help you get out of jail for a fraction of the cost of bail. If you can't afford the premium, don't sweat it! Mr. Nice Guy has payment plans that can help get you out of jail today, back to work tomorrow, and you can pay as you can afford it.
