The bail bond amount is based on the charges, and set by the judges in a County Bail Schedule. Depending on the details and severity of the crime, bail schedules have different bail amounts. For example, a DUI charge in LA County has a $15,000 bail and a DUI charge that involves an accident is set at $50,000.
California’s average bail amount is $25,000, and in many cases it can be higher. Most people don’t have that amount of money and will need to hire a licensed bail bond agent. Professional bail bondsmen are very experienced in this area. They know the jail systems and bail schedules, and can walk you through the entire process and handle release procedures. The jail release process can happen much sooner if a bail bondsman is contacted as soon as possible.
