San Bernardino County Department of Corrections Can Be Tricky
When police arrest an individual, the law enforcement agency books the suspect and sends him (or her) to a county holding facility. For Crestline, that facility is the Central Detention Center in downtown San Bernardino. Once the suspect enters the county facility, it can take significantly longer for the county to release him. Herbert Bail Bonds understands this process completely, and knows how to get the suspect out quickly.
But even if your loved one 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 expedite your release, and have long-standing relationships with the holding officials at all county facilities in the area. The sooner you call us, the sooner we get you out of custody.
Count on Our Experience
Please don’t take your freedom for granted. The last thing you want to do when you need help is entrust your freedom to an inexperienced bondsman who doesn’t know the industry. We have served the people of Crestline for over 45 years, and during that time, we have acquired a critical set of skills that can only come through experience.
We simplify the bail process for you, taking the stress out of it. We arrive at the holding facility with our paperwork filled out and the bail amount in-hand. We get the county holding officials to process your paperwork quickly and release you in minimal time. If necessary, we can visit you at your residence to get your signature and the bail bond fee. We also take payments by fax or phone when the guarantor is not local.
In addition to posting bail for you, we can also help you post bail on your own, and help advocate that the bail be returned once your case is closed. If you need an attorney or private investigator to help you with 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 to 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 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.
