My son was arrested while visiting California last night and my husband and I want to take him out of the jail as fast as humanly possible. We’re worried he might be denied bail because he lives in Texas (the whole family lives here). When will I know if the court denies his bail?
In the state of California, there are only a few reasons that a person would be denied bail. First, if the defendant is on probation or parole, the court might issue a no bail bonds hold. Second, if the defendant is accused of a crime that could be punishable by the death penalty, the court might deny bail. If your son has not been accused of a capital crime, he should be permitted to post bail bonds as soon as he’s booked and processed.
