How Bail Bonds in Sacramento Work
Bail is different in every county, set by a panel of judges who construct what is known as a bail schedule. If there are no extenuating circumstances, the bail will then be set for your friend or loved one by the sheriff’s deputies in the Sacramento county jail when booking the defendant. Sometimes if the offense is minor and the person has a clean record, they are often released on their own recognizance (O.R.). However, if bail is set you may post bail in one of three ways:
- Cash Bail – Let’s say the bail is $25,000-. You would take $25,000- in cash to the court and pay that amount while your friend or loved one goes through their court case (usually taking months and months). This $25,000- that you have paid directly to the court is fully refundable once the defendant’s case is exonerated.
- Property Bond – Again, if the bail is set at $25,000- you would put up a deed of trust with the court for twice the bail amount ($50,000-) in equity in a property (obviously takes much longer with appraisals, etc.).
- Bail Bonds – The bail being $25,000- you would contact a bail bond company such as Leonard Padilla Bail Bonds in Sacramento and pay a 10% fee of $2,500-. That fee is regulated in the State of California (meaning all bail bonds companies charge the same amount). This premium is fully earned and non-refundable once your friend or loved one is released from jail no matter the outcome of his or her case.
