Typically, when an individual is arrested for a crime in the state of California, that person will be taken to a local law enforcement station for booking, like the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, prior to incarceration in a station lock-up or county jail. All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita bail agents have explained the different release options available for your loved one.
The defendant has several options for release pending the conclusion of his or her case, once arrested and booked.
“We want to make sure you know the wide range of release options available for your loved one at All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita,” said Inessa Chavez, vice president of All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita.
The five basic release options available to an arrestee are: cash bail, surety bond, property bond, release on his or her Own Recognizance (OR), and release on citation, also known as “Cite Out.”
An individual must post with the court the total amount of the bail, in cash, to secure his or her return to court on an appointed date, and thereafter until the case is concluded to be released on cash bail.
Full cash bonds provide a powerful incentive for defendants to appear at trial.
The cash is returned to the defendant if he or she shows up to their scheduled court appearances.
The cash is forfeited to the court if the defendant fails to appear.
Also known as a bail bond, an alternative to cash bail is the posting of a surety bond, which is also known as a bail bond.
A third party, like All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita helps to bail out the arrested out of jail.
Bail agents at All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita guarantee to the court that they will pay the bond forfeiture if a defendant fails to appear for their scheduled court appearances.
All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita’s guarantee is made through a surety company
A family member or a friend of the accused only need to pay 10 percent of the total bail to the bail bond company instead of paying the full amount, also known as premium.
A bail agent undertakes a detailed interview of the proposed guarantor of the surety bond, as well as the arrestee and relatives of the arrestee, as part of the underwriting procedure for a bail bond.
“We can be assured at All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita that your loved one being released on a bail bond will appear at his or her designated court date, as required, until the case is completed by involving family and friends, as well through the acceptance of collateral,” said Chavez.
All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita loses the whole bail amount to the state if the accused decide to flee from court date or disappear during trial.
An individual may obtain release from custody by means of posting a property bond with the court, in rare cases.
To secure the bail amount, the court records a legal claim against the property as security for debt.
“If your loved one doesn’t appear on his or her scheduled court date, the court may foreclose your property to obtain the forfeited bail amount,” said Chavez.
Own Recognizance (OR)
Another method of release pending trial is through a county or law enforcement administered pre-trial release program is own recognizance, also known as OR.
Typically, a deputy of staff member of the jail will interview defendants and make recommendations to the court regarding release of him or her on their own recognizance.
The interview process is usually conducted over the phone, with little questioning into the individual’s background to determine whether the detainee is likely to appear in court with virtually no verification of information provided by the detainee.
“Your loved one faces no personal economic hardship is he or she fails to appear in court since no money or bond is posted to secure their appearance,” said Chavez. “We will always verify if your loved one qualifies for OR at All American Bail Bonds in Santa Clarita.”
The arresting officer will issue a citation to the arrestee informing them that they must appear at an appointed court date in the event of a citation release
Also known as the “Cite Out,” the citation release usually occurs immediately after an arrest.
“In a citation release, your loved one may never be placed in custody,” said Chavez. “Your loved one’s appearance in court depends on his or her integrity and voluntarily in returning to court, like the Own Recognizance release.”
