The Basics About Bail Bonds
- Bail bonds are the more ideal route to bailing out of jail compared to cash bail for most people.
- The bail amount is determined by the judge at the arraignment hearing and the amount dictates the cost of the bail bond, which will be 10% of the bail.
- The defendant or someone on their behalf, must contact Salinas Bail Bond Store in order to get the bail bond process started.
- Bail bonds are paid off over an extended period of time, compared to cash bail that is paid all at once.
- The bail bondsman will want valid identification, contact information, info regarding the crime, and where the defendant is being held.
- The defendant will need to make all court appearances or his or her bail will be revoked.
- Bail bonds can be paid with cash, credit/debit, or checks.
- Collateral may be required for the bail bond, which will be released back to the owner as long as the defendant is compliant with the release terms and conditions.
