The Sacramento Bail Process: Frequently Asked Questions

Most people don’t have a good understanding of the bail process, because they don’t deal with it on a regular basis. This is one of the reasons it’s so important to work with someone who has experience working in criminal justice, and understands how each individual court operates. Here is a description of a bail bond, as well as an overview of the arrest, booking, and bail process. It’s important to know what to expect as you work to bail out your loved one.

What is Bail and What are Bail Bonds?
First, you must understand the purpose of bail. When a person is arrested and is being held in jail, the court must have a way to ensure that the defendant returns to face justice after they are released. Otherwise, the defendant would face only the threat of additional charges. This is the purpose of bail. In order for the defendant to be released and not sit in jail, they must pay a set dollar amount. If the defendant appears for all court dates, at the end of their case, the money will be returned. The difficulty with bail is that it must be paid in full, and it must be in cash. Often, bail amount can be high and it can be difficult to come up with that much money all at once. This is where a bail agent comes in. When you work with a bail agent, you much less than the full bail amount, and payment plans are offered to make it much easier to come up with payment. Additionally, you have the expertise and insight of an agent who has worked with that specific court and can help you through the entire process, including ensuring the defendant appears for court dates, through the entirety of the case.
Arrests: What to Expect
Arrests don’t always happen at the scene of the alleged crime. They can occur at any point. In many cases, they only occur after a judge has issued an arrest warrant after an investigation has occurred to gather evidence. When a person is arrested, they will be taken to jail and will be booked
The Booking Process
Each jail is different on how they handle arrests, and how much time it will take for booking. But generally, a few things will happen:

  • Background Check
  • Mugshots Taken
  • Body Search
  • Fingerprinting
  • Medical Examination
  • Questioning
  • Personal Effects Collected and Catalogued

Each jail may include other processes, but in general, the above will take place. The information that is gathered will be run through a national database and compared to existing criminal records.

The Bail Process
When you get the phone call or first hear of the arrest of someone you care about, act quickly. It is important that you bail them out of jail as quickly as possible. Or, if you are concerned there may be a warrant out for your arrest, speak with a bail agent immediately. Our experienced bail agents will work behind the scenes as quickly as possible to ensure a timely release.
How Long Does it Take to Be Released?
The length of the bail process is determined by many different factors, such as the jail, the alleged crime that was committed, the bail amount, and the length of the court case itself. Each circumstance is different. It is wise to speak with a bail agent before determining how long it will take for your loved one to be released. Our agents will keep you updated through each step of the process, so you won’t feel alone or worried about the length of time. In most cases, bail is set the day of the arrest. If, however, the arrest occurred over the weekend, it will take until the next business day, when a judge can set bail.
What Do I Need to Do to Get a Bail Bond?

Some processes need to take place in order to obtain a bail bond resulting in the release of a loved one from jail:

  • The bail bond fee of 10% of the set bail amount must be paid
  • In some cases, co-signers must sign to ensure the amount will be paid back
  • Paperwork must be signed and completed

Once the paperwork is complete and the fee has been paid, our agents will contact the jail and post the bond. It takes anywhere from 2010 hours from the time the bond is posted for the defendant to be released. Each jail operates different, however, and the time for release depends greatly on how busy the jail is and how they operate.

What Happens After a Bail Bond is Posted?
After a person has been released from jail on bail, they must remain in the same city or area for the duration of their criminal case. They must attend all their court dates, and make all payments to the bond agency. If a defendant skips bail, the agent will turn to co-signers or whomever is legally responsible for the remainder of their fee.
