El Dorado County Jail in South Lake Tahoe located at 1051 Al Tahoe Blvd. They will be booked into the system, have their fingerprints and photograph taken. A background check and search for pre-existing warrants will also be done.

After booking, a bail amount will be set, and the defendant will be able to post bail or have a bondsman post it for them.

Bail Bond Costs

In California, the cost of a bail bond is 10% of the total bail amount. For example, if bail is set at $10,000, the fee charged will be $1,000.

This amount is determined by the California Department of Insurance. It is illegal for a bond agency to negotiate this amount with clients. It may seem more desirable to do business with an agency that is willing to accept a lower amount. But you need to ask yourself: If the agent is willing to act illegally in this instance, in what other areas do they bend the law?
