What Is A Bail Bond?
A bail bond in Long Beach is basically a promise to appear for court in return for a set amount of money being offered as security. Bail bonds are a constitutional right that allows a person the ability to be released from jail so they can return to work and obtain legal counsel. During the time they are out on bail, they can resume their daily lives and begin to prepare their case for their upcoming trial. As with any contract, there are risks that must be considered, especially if the defendant is considered to be a flight risk.
How Do They Work?
When a bail bond is written, a co-signer guarantees that the defendant will attend all further court hearings and comply with the requirements of the court that were put in place prior to their release. The cost of a bail bond is normally 10 percent of the total cost of the bond. ($35,000 x 10 % = $3,500). Depending on the type of offense committed, a bail bond is set according to a bail schedule. In severe cases, the bail will be determined by the judge at an arraignment hearing.
Once bail as been determined, a family member or friend will contact a bail bonds agent who will then write the bond. The agent will then collect the premium and go to the jail and post the required amount needed to obtain the release of the defendant. If for any reason, the defendant fails to appear or comply with the court's requirements, the bond can be forfeited and the co-signer becomes responsible for the entire amount of the bail bond.
Understanding the Long Beach Bail Bonds Process
In Long Beach and other southern California communities, the bail bonds process is rather simple. When you contact the bail bonds agent, you will need to have the defendant's basic information, including full name, date of birth, possible nature of the crime and where they may be located. Once the bail bond has been written, the agent will post the bond and the release process will begin.
Writing the bond can take as little as 30 to 45 minutes. The release process, however, can take anywhere from 2 to 8 hours depending on how busy the jail is and how well staffed they are. Once the bail has been posted and the defendant has been released, the defendant and agent will discuss the requirements of the court and the Long Beach bail agent will also notify them of their court date. After all of the defendant's legal responsibilities to the court have been fulfilled, the court will release the bail bond and the remainder will be returned to the co-signer after any fees and court costs have been deducted.
