How is Bail Determined?
In the state of California, bail amounts are set on a county-by-county basis. Every year, a “bail schedule” is set by the county judges. There is a set of criteria that each judge follows when setting the bail schedule:
- Consideration of public safety
- Likelihood of returning to court
- Severity of the crime-more serious crimes= higher bail amount
- Repeat offenders may get higher bail or no bail

A person arrested by the Mono County Sheriff’s Department will likely be taken to the Mono County Jail for processing. The arresting officer in Mono County will check the county bail schedule when the defendant is being “booked in” in order to determine the bail amount on bailable offenses, such as DUI.
The bail amount can be set at the time of arraignment by the Mono County judge if necessary.
It is possible that the amount could be reduced by the judge at that time. The judge can also, at their discretion, raise the amount, release the defendant on their own recognizance, or disallow bail altogether and remand the defendant to custody.
Bail Bond Process
A bail bond is also known as a surety bond, and is essentially a contract between a state licensed bail agent and the signer or cosigner that guarantees the defendant will appear for all scheduled court appearances. In the event that the defendant does not appear in court, called a “skip,” the signers of the bail bond agreement will pay the entire amount of the bond.
To approve a bail bond for your friend or family member, we will need to gather some information. We will ask for the defendant’s full legal name and date of birth, a list of charges and bail amount, and where they are being held. It will also be helpful to have their employment information and address.
It is important for you to know how the bail bond process works before you decide to bail someone out of jail. Agents are available to speak with you 24-hours a day and will walk you through the process from start to finish.
When you call 1-877-861-3761, a bondsman will be able to answer any questions you have about bail bonds in Mono County.
Cost and Payment Options
The bail bond fee, called a premium, is set by the California Department of Insurance. It is equal to 10% of the total bail amount. For example, if bail is set at $10,000, then you will pay a bail bond premium of $1,000 to a bondsman.
We know that paying a large sum of money isn’t always easy. That is why we are happy to accept payment with a Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover card. We offer no-collateral bail bonds, and in many cases we can make a payment plan for those who need one. There are no additional fees for a payment plan.
This is a very trying time for you. We will work hard to make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
