Bail Information

Bailing out of jail is the process of paying money to secure a release from jail. In addition to posting bail, the accused must make promises to appear in court in the future. Some cases are not bailable, or may require an additional bond. This usually applies to major crimes, defendants who have violated probation, or immigration cases.

Note: the court date for the defendant to appear is usually given to the bail agent at the time of release on bail.

The amount of bail that is to be paid is initially set by the arresting officer who sets the amount of bail according to a bail schedule. For example, the bail schedule for the crime of Prostitution in San Bernardino county is $25,000, for the crime of Pimping, it is  $50,000, etc.

Sometimes, after the accused has already bailed out of jail, the district attorney subtracts, adds, or changes criminal charges; therefore, the amount of bail required may change either upwards, downwards, or become unnecessary altogether.

Note: If criminal charges are dropped after the accused bailed out, and the accused used a private bail company to post bail, the accused will not receive a refund from the bail company.

If the criminal charges increase after the accused has already bailed out of jail the judge may require the defendant to post additional bail. This is also true where the defendant did not post bail but rather was released on his or her own recognizance from the jail before court.

There is an option to stake the entire bail amount with the court in lieu of using a private bail company; however, most people use a bail company because bail companies charge as little as five percent of the total bail amount to secure release. The benefit of staking money with the court as opposed to using a private bail company is that the defendant may have a hundred percent return of the amount staked with the court once bail is exonerated or no longer necessary. A bail company always keeps the premium, or percentage, paid. 

It may be possible to lower the defendant's bail to below the bail schedule amount. This is usually accomplished through a bail hearing where the defendant's danger to the community and flight risk, among other factors, are considered by a judge.
