Wondering How Much a Bail Bond Costs?

oakland-bailbonds1

One of the most asked questions in the bail bond industry, is how much does a bail bond cost? The problem is, that the answer to that questions varies from case to case.

The cost of a bail bond depends on a person’s bail amount, which is assigned by a judge. The judge determines the bail amount by looking at a couple different factors. The judge takes into account the crime that the defendant is accused of and his or her criminal record. After the judge considers those factors, he or she will assign a bail amount.

Bail bond prices are based on the bail that they are for and can vary from state to state. In California, bail bonds will always be 10% of the bail that they are for. If your loved one has a bail set at $10,000, then his or her bail bond will be $1,000.

Bailing Someone Out in another State

Do you live in California, but are trying to bail a loved one out of jail in another state? If so, you might be running into a bit of trouble finding a bail agent who can help you.

The problem is, that bail agents need a license to bail people out of jail, and that license is issued by the state. This is due to the fact that bail laws vary from state to state, which means bail agents cannot bail people out of jail unless they are licensed to do so in that state. A number of bail agents are only ever licensed to do bail in their own state, so probably will not have much luck with finding a local bail agent who can help you.

If you need to bail a friend or family member out of jail in another state, try looking for a bail agent who is local to the area where your loved one was arrested...

What Determines Own Recognizance Release

san-francisco-bailbonds47

Not all who are arrested are given the opportunity to be released on own recognizance, which is when a defendant signs formal papers promising to show up for court, then is released from jail. Most defendants are granted bail, meaning they have to pay money to the court in order to be released from jail. Some are denied bail altogether. What factors determine own recognizance and bail?

Who determines: The judge.

What factors contribute: A defendant’s prior criminal record, the current crime he or she is accused of, the ties and relationships the defendant has to others in the community, and their financial ability to pay for bail.

As you can probably guess, if a defendant has virtually no prior criminal history, has strong ties to the community, and the crime he or she is accused of i...

Juvenile vs. Adult Proceedings

san-francisco-bailbonds46

There are different proceedings, rights, and consequences for someone 17 or younger who gets arrested versus someone 18 or older who is arrested. In most states, anyone 17 or younger is called a juvenile, and when they turn 18, they are called an adult. The differences are due to the fact that juveniles have less understanding of the law and are still considered minors.

• Juvenile hearings are heard by judges only, whereas an adult has a trial by a jury.

• Juveniles do not have the right to bail; they are released to the custody of their parents or legal guardians. Adults may be granted or denied bail.

• Juveniles do not have a public trial.

• On his or her 18th birthday, juvenile records are automatically sealed. So when they become an adult, their criminal record appears clean...
