The Bail Process & Cost
In California, bail is set on a county-by-county basis. Each county’s judge has an annual review of the bail schedule and will adjust the amounts as needed. This bail schedule will be used by law enforcement throughout the county to set bail amounts for defendants. The judge always considers public safety when setting bail. If the defendant could cause more harm to the public, the bail amount will be set higher.
If the defendant is a repeat offender, their bail amount will be set higher. Any extenuating circumstances will be taken into consideration. For example, if the defendant was arrested for a DUI but also caused an accident, injury, or death, the amount of bail will be greater than that of a DUI alone.
The judge will also consider if the defendant poses a flight risk, i.e. no family ties to the community or does not have a place of employment. In some instances, the judge may allow the defendant to be released on their own recognizance (OR) and no bail will be needed for their release. The bail amount could also be reduced by the judge.
There is also the possibility that the judge will order the defendant to be remanded, meaning that there will be no bail and the defendant will spend the duration of the court proceedings in jail.
Once a bail amount has been set for your loved one, you may pay the entire bail amount to the court or jail. The defendant will be required to appear for all court cases or the bail could be revoked and they would go to jail. After the court case has concluded, the bail money will be returned to you. The way many cases go, though, it could be months or even years before you received this money back.
Your other option is to seek the services of a licensed bail bondsman. Rather than having to pay what is often a very large sum of money, you can pay a percentage (10%) of the bail amount to a bail bondsman. For example, if bail is set at $15,000, you will pay a bail bondsman $1,500. The bondsman will then go to the jail or courthouse and post the bond. This fee paid to the bondsman, called the premium, is not returned to you, regardless of the outcome of the case.
