24 Hour Bail Bonds Services for San Diego

In the video below we will discuss 24 hour bail bonds services for San Diego. In addition, we cover the bail bonds booking process, and payment options:

What Do I Do If I Am Arrested In San Diego?

Above all, remember to stay calm if you are arrested by the police in San Diego. Keep your hands visible, speak calmly, and do not resist if the police feel the need to temporarily restrain you. Any physical altercations that happen during arrest may make the charges more severe at a later date. 

Once arrested, you will be taken to San Diego Central Jail and undergo the bookings process. This can take several hours, and will usually involve:

  • Taking of your personal details, finger prints, mugshots and information relating to the alleged crime. Most of the details will be taken directly from the police accounts.
  • Searches and holding of personal items. You may need to have a full-body search, be provided with a jail uniform, and have your personal items held temporarily.
  • You may be provided with a general health check to make sure you have no immediate health concerns.

Although the booking process might be scary, it is important to remain calm throughout the process and think about next steps, like your phone call. After this process is complete, you will be able to call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds to start the process for posting bail and getting out of jail. If you are arrested and taken to a smaller facility without holding cells, you may be temporarily held at San Diego Central Jail until bail is posted.

What if my case gets dropped?

If your case is dropped, that’s good news but be aware that the San Diego District Attorneys office often fills misdemeanor cases up to one year later, and up to three years later on felony cases. Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic many cases are being filled late. With the increased amount of late file cases in San Diego it is important to keep a eye out for a letter from the courts and also check the court websites to see if and when your case is filed. If the case is filled later and you miss the court date a warrant will be issued for your arrest and bail will need to be posted.

What happens if my case gets refiled?

If your court case is refiled or filed late, the court will most likely send a notice to appear in the mail. These notices come in the form of a plain white envelope with the Superior Court of San Diego as the return address. The letters are sent to the last known address, usually the address on file from the arrest. You will need to appear on the listed time, date, and address on the summons. If you fail to appear an arrest warrant will be issued.

How do I check to see if my case was filed?

You can check both the San Diego District Attorneys website and search your name and the Superior Court website as well. Be sure to check both as cases may be listed on one website and not the other.

What Is Bail?

A bail is a legal deposit paid to the jail. In exchange for the individual’s freedom until their trial is complete and sentencing passed, they pay a deposit as a way of confirming they will attend all their court and trial appearances. It is a hangover from English Common Law. 

There may be some conditions in addition to bail - the individual must not leave the state, must reside at a particular address, and comply with certain requirements to remain out of jail during their trial.

Bail is posted by the courts, and usually has set payment levels. For more severe cases like murder or manslaughter, bail can be withheld, or their may be a bail hearing where the judge makes their own decision on the bail rate. Bail is held by the courts until sentencing is complete, and then returned to the individual that paid it. Bail can be held for up to a year or more, depending on the severity and length of the trial.

How Do San Diego Bail Bonds Work?

As a San Diego Bail Bonds Company, our agents work with the state and the surety company to post a ‘bond’ for the individual that needs to get out of jail. This will be a percentage of your bail, which is usually 10% but can be reduced to 7% in special circumstances if the client has a private attorney and pays the premium within 72 hours. At Mr. Nice Guy, we charge a flat rate with no hidden costs, so you know exactly what you or your loved one needs to pay the moment you speak to us.

Once you place a call to us at Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds, we can be with you in minutes. This is especially important with San Diego Central Jail, as it is a county jail with a larger inmate intake, so time is of the essence in getting you out of jail as quickly as possible. We are available for you 24-7, so whenever you finish your booking process we can be on the line with you as soon as you need us.

The San Diego bail bond acts as a guarantee between the defendant, the surety company and the state that the individual will attend court hearings and trial appearances. The agreement serves as a guarantee that the client will turn up for all their hearings and trial proceedings, so they don’t have to be held in custody and can return home to their loved ones. 

Once your bail bond is posted, you can return home to your family until your court date and any future sentencing. Bail bonds in San Diego work in a similar way to bail, except payment is at a fraction of the full bail cost, and stops those paying the bail from being in unmanageable debt while the individual goes through their trial.

PC1275 Hearings With Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds In San Diego

If prosecutors or anyone involved in the arrest of an individual suspects that bail may be posted through illegal activity, a PC1275 can be placed on the bail. This means that the bail money is suspected to come through criminal offenses related to drugs, theft, or gang-related activity, and is therefore ineligible for the purposes of releasing your loved one from jail.

A PC1275 hearing is when the defendant can prove that the money is clean, and free of criminal charges.

Whoever posts the bail will need to provide:

  • Proof of income
  • Tax returns
  • Car returns
  • Bank statements 
  • Credit card statements
  • Monthly bill payment statements 

As proof that money is eligible for bail. At Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds, we can provide bail bondsman support for you. It is also highly recommended you bring an attorney for legal advice and any character witnesses that can attest to your proof of income.
