Bail Bonds Services for Colton

If you have ever been arrested, you know that it can be scary, confusing, and discouraging. Even when you have family and friends in your corner, they may not always have the funds necessary to bail you out of jail. Even if they do, a high bail amount may be more than they want to pay. Once you are locked up, time is very important. If you call on a reliable bail bondsman, they can pay your bail for you and get you back out on the street.

Herbert Bail Bonds has been serving the city of Colton for 45 years, and has established relationships with all of the jails in San Bernardino County and the rest of the Southland. We have helped countless people in Colton to get out of jail and back to their families with minimal disruption to their lives. We have a strong background in law enforcement, and know exactly how to make the system work in your favor.

Basic facts about Bail Bonds

When someone is arrested, the arresting agency works through the court to assign that person a bail amount appropriate for their alleged crime. Several factors can influence the amount of the bail, including the individual’s record, flight risk, and the severity of the crime. Minor crimes tend to warrant small bail amounts, while serious felonies warrant more serious amounts. Occasionally, the crime or flight risk is severe enough that the individual is denied bail, but such cases are rare.

If the arrested party (or someone acting in his/her behalf) is able to provide the bail amount to the court, the party is then released, under the condition that he or she returns to court for all required appearances. Should the arrested party fail to return, the court issues a warrant for his or her arrest. In such cases, the bail amount goes into default, which means that unless the suspect can be persuaded to return to court (or arrested and returned) within a certain time frame, the court will keep the bail.

Most people cannot afford bail. Even when a family member has the money, that person often cannot get it to the arresting agency fast enough to prevent them from sending the individual in custody to county jail. Besides this, most family members and friends would prefer not to have their money tied up in a court case, which can drag on for months. However, and experienced bail bondsman can quickly locate the arrested party and get them out of custody, thus allowing the family member or friend to hold on to their cash..

Each bail bond has two components: the bail, and the bond. For a small fee, the bondsman pays the bail amount to the law enforcement agency, which in turn releases the suspect. However, this bail amount becomes a loan to the suspect’s friend or family member. Thus, the bond is a promise (made by the borrowing party) that the suspect will attend all future court dates. If the suspect fails to attend, the bail is forfeited, and the borrower then becomes responsible for paying it back. In addition, the bondsman may employ bounty hunters to track down the suspect and return him or her to jail, in order to avoid forfeiting his bail.

San Bernardino County Department of Corrections Can Be Tricky

When police arrest an individual in Colton, the arresting agency quickly processes the party and sends him or her to a county holding facility. In the case of Colton, CA, that facility is the Central Detention Center in San Bernardino. Once the individual reaches the county facility, the county takes much longer to release him/her, as processing times are longer. In turn, this means that your loved one will remain in custody longer. Herbert Bail Bonds knows this, we understand how to get people out before they are transferred.

However, even if your family member or friend has already been sent to a county facility, Herbert Bail Bonds has the necessary expertise to facilitate a quick release. We work with all local law enforcement agencies to get you out quickly, and have long-standing relationships with the various county facilities in the area to expedite your release. The sooner you call us, the sooner you are out on the street.

Count on Our Experience

Freedom is not something you should take for granted. When you are in desperate need of help, the last thing you want to do is entrust your freedom to an inexperienced bondsman who doesn’t know the industry. We have served the city of Colton for over 45 years, and have developed a critical set of skills that can only come through experience.

We take the stress out of the bail process for you by making it simple. When we arrive at the holding facility, we have our paperwork filled out, and the bail money in-hand. We get the county holding officials to process your paperwork quickly to get you out in minimal time. We are even willing to travel to your residence to get your signature and the bail bond fee. We have even processed payments by fax or phone in cases where the guarantor is not local.

In addition to posting bail for you, we can also help you post bail on your own, and help request that bail be returned once your case is closed. If you need an attorney or private investigator to help you prove your case, we can help you find one. Over the years, we have acquired a number of resources to not just help you get your freedom back, but help you keep it as well.

Paying for Your Bail Bond

The fee for a bail bond is 10% of the bail amount. The state determines this amount, so no bondsman can charge you more or less. The state allows a bondsman to reduce that fee to 8%, if any of the following criteria are met:

  • The arrested party has retained a criminal defense attorney.
  • A party to the transaction is a member of a workers’ union.
  • A party to the transaction is a member of the United States Military.

If the bail bond fee is too high, we do offer flexible financing and payment plans. In some cases where the bail amount is high, we may require collateral. In such cases, we are willing to accept anything with sufficient resale value, if it is owned outright. We offer these options because we do not want to money to be an obstacle to your freedom. We know how important your time is, and we want you to make the most of it.

Get Out of Jail and Back to Life

Herbert Bail Bonds remains dedicated to providing excellent bail services for everyone who calls on us for help. When you are in custody, we understand your urgency. Count on us to provide you with the same personal attention we would give to our own family. You can fully expect us to use our connections, knowledge, and experience to get you released any time of day or night, any day of the week. All it takes is one phone call.
