Bail bonds act as a guarantee to ensure the defendant will attend trial whenever he the courts asks to be present. In a few situations, the defendant requires to give collateral. Collateral is the asset that is deposited with the bail bondsman. If the defendant fails to show up on court dates, the bail bondsman uses it to recover the money lost. A few things accepted as collateral are cars, stocks, bonds, property, jewelry, bank account, etc.
When the defendant lacks the finances to pay the bail amount, he can turn to a San Diego bail bonds agent for assistance. Bail bond agents are the experts who charge 10% of the total bail amount for the services they offer, referred to as the bail bond premium. This amount is non-refundable. Upon paying this fee, the bail bondsman will pay the remaining amount to the court, which gets refunded once the case gets over.
The judge determines the bail amount, and several factors go into determining this amount. Some of the factors considered by the judge to set bail amount are the nature of the offense, community ties, flight risk, employment history, past criminal record, etc. Moreover, the seriousness of the crime is a vital factor in setting the bail amount. For instance, a person charged with armed robbery will have to bear high bail payments than a person arrested for stealing goods.
San Diego bail bonds are a contractual agreement that needs to be signed by the bail bond agency and the Indemnitor. By signing the bail bonds, the bail bonds agency and Indemnitor guarantee the court that the defendant will show up to the court whenever asked. During the bail bond application procedure, the Indemnitor has to pay the bail bond premium, court fees, and other additional fees. After this, the agent goes to court or jail for posting a bond. Once the bail is accepted, the defendant gets released from custody.
The paperwork takes around 20 to 40 minutes, based on the complexity of the transaction involved. The defendant can be released in an hour or at times, less for local police stations and 6 to 11 hours in the county jail. Please note these are general time frames and not guaranteed times.
Some basic information you need to provide the bail bond agent is the full name of the defendant, their date-of-birth, their address, their employment information, their criminal record, etc. The bail bondsman might also ask for the booking number. If you do not know, do not worry the San Diego bail bonds agent can find it on your behalf. Moreover, the bail bondsman will ask if you can afford a bond. If you cannot afford it, Affordably Easy Bail Bonds offers flexible payment options to help you with the bond payment. To qualify for a co-signer, a person must have a stable income, valid government identification, proof of residence, and at least 18 years of age.
If you fail to attend the court dates, you will have to face punishments that can prolong and complicate your case. One of the dreadful consequences of failing to attend the court date is a bench warrant. If such a warrant is issued, the police have the right to arrest you and send you to prison with less possibility of posting bail. The judge might allow you to post bail in some circumstances but might set high bail bond amount.
If the defendant wants to go out of the state or country, the defendant needs to ask permission from the San Diego bail bonds agent. You need to provide the exact location you will be visiting and staying. Moreover, you need to provide additional contacts to reach out to you and the exact dates on which you are going and arriving back. If you fail to take permission and give the needed information, you can be rearrested for breaking the contract.
Once the defendant is re-arrested, the bond needs to be surrendered, and the liability is terminated. In such a situation, few issues arise. If you surrender the bail bond, you will premium paid will is lost. On the other hand, if you get the defendant out on bond, you will be required to post two new bonds and pay premiums for both bonds.
