I’ve never needed to do anything like this before so I’m not sure how all of this works. My son is going to school in California and he was arrested last night after he got into a fight with his girlfriend. We want to get him out of jail but my husband and I are worried he’d be denied bail since he’s not from California. Is this something that could happen? He’s never been in trouble before.
From what you’ve told us, you shouldn’t need to worry about your son being denied bail bonds. In the state of California, bail can be denied under three circumstances. First and second, if someone is arrested while they are on probation or on parole, there is a chance the judge might issue a no-bail bonds hold. Third, if a defendant has been accused of committing a capital crime (a crime that could be punishable by the death penalty if they’re found guilty… aka murder) the judge might deny bail because the defendant would be considered a flight risk. Since it doesn’t sound as if your son is on probation or parole, and since he hasn’t been charged with a capital offense, a bondsman will be able to help you get him out of jail fast.
