If you have never needed to talk to someone about Shasta County bail bonds before you are not alone. Almost everyone that calls our office before has never needed to bail someone out of jail before. Many of them are unfamiliar with the process, and ask we walk them through step by step.
The first thing you will want to know about signing a bail bonds contract is that you are taking on two important responsibilities. First, you are taking responsibility that the defendant goes to court. Depending on charges and the situation surrounding their arrest they may have more than one court date. If the defendant misses court on accident they will want to call their Shasta bail bondsman as soon as possible, because the judge will issue a warrant for their immediate arrest. The bondsman will provide them a piece of paper to bring to the court which will allow the bond to be reinstated, the warrant lifted and their court date rescheduled.
If the defendant willfully decides to skip bail the person who signed the bail bonds contract will be contacted for assistance in locating them. If the defendant is not returned to custody within a set period of time, they and the bondsman they worked with will be responsible for paying the defendant’s full bail amount to the court.
The second thing you need to keep in mind is that you are guaranteeing the bondsman’s fee will be paid. In many cases this is done up front, in full, before the bond is posted. If you have arranged a payment plan, though, you will need to make sure that payment is made as agreed. Many Shasta County bail bonds companies offer their clients zero-percent financing. Be sure to ask the bondsman you’re working with whether they charge interest of financing fees for payment plans.

If you have a friend or family member who has been arrested and taken to one of the Shasta County jails they will first need to be booked and processed.
