What is a Bail Bond?

If you watch crime dramas on TV, you have heard the phrase “bail bond” before. And based on what you have seen, you know that it gets the arrested party out of jail. But most people do not know much about bail bonds beyond these basics. Should you require a bail bond, it is important that you know what it is and how it functions.

A bail bond is made of two parts: the posting of the bail money and the bond. When bail is posted, money is given to the courts to secure the release of the arrested party. The bond is a promise to the courts that the arrested party will attend all future court dates related to their case. If they fail to appear, the money will be kept by the courts, a warrant will be issued for their arrest, and bail will likely be denied in the future.

Bail is set when the individual is registered into custody. This can happen at the jail or after the initial court date related to the case. In certain circumstances, bail can be denied, but this is rare.

In cases where bail is permitted, it can be difficult for the arrested individual to secure their freedom. In many cases, the cost of bail is too high to afford outright. In other cases, even though the bail is relatively low, it may be difficult to secure the cash. Bail bonds allow anyone to get out of custody, whether they have the funds on hand or not

The San Bernardino Department of Corrections Can Be Tricky

Fontana is home to a little over 200,000 residents, making it a midsize city for the area. As such, it does not have its own detention center. Instead, those who are taken into custody in Fontana are held at the Fontana Sheriff’s Department, located at 17780 Arrow Boulevard.

The holding area at the Sheriff’s Department is classified as a Type I facility. This means that it has the resources needed to hold a small number of inmates for a short period of time. By law, it is only allowed to hold an inmate for a total of 96 hours, or 4 days. However, due to the limited space, most inmates are moved within hours to larger facilities in San Bernardino County.

This is where things get complicated. Larger holding facilities have longer processing times, which means that once you are there, it takes longer for us to get you out of custody. In some cases, this can mean spending an extra day in jail. So it is vital that you contact us as soon as possible, allowing us to prevent the transfer by getting you released while still at the Sheriff’s Department.

If you are unable to contact us before the transfer, does that spell disaster for you? Not necessarily. We are highly experienced at working with the detention centers in San Bernardino County and we can still get you out of custody faster than our competitors; however, the process at these detention centers is longer. Whether you are at Central Detention Center, High Desert Detention Center, or West Valley Detention Center, we can come post bail and get you out of custody.

We Work to Make the Process Convenient for You

Being arrested is stressful enough; we don’t want the process of getting released to add to it. To help take some of the weight off of your shoulders, we make our process easy for you. Once you call, we head to you or to a friend or family member to handle payment and get a few signatures. From there, we pay bail at the jail, courthouse, or detention center and get you released. If you do not have anyone local to help, we will work with anyone within the United States by fax or phone.

In addition to our services, we are well acquainted with other companies and individuals that can help you. If you need the number of a private investigator to help you fight your case, or that of a lawyer, we can give you contact information. We can also help you with paperwork that can deal with outstanding warrants and to see if you qualify for bail reduction.

Paying for Your Bail Bond

For anyone who cannot afford to pay their bail outright, or who does not have immediate access to the funds, a bail bond is the only way to get out of custody. With a bail bond, you do not need to cover the full amount of bail yourself; instead, you pay us 10%, or 8% in the following circumstances:

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

If your bail amount is set very high, even the 10% or 8% might be too much. However, Herbert Bail Bonds offers flexible financing and repayment plan options to help make it accessible for you. We also accept many forms of collateral and can discuss this when you call.
