Bail Bonds in Placentia
Finding out someone you care about has been arrested usually comes as a surprise to most people. It is not an event they plan for. Quite often, people who have never been arrested before get arrested for Domestic Violence. Once Placentia Police Officers have been dispatched on a Domestic Violence call they must follow certain guidelines. These guidelines help ensure no further harm will occur after they leave. The officer must try to determine who the primary aggressor was. This can be difficult to determine but the officer must make the best determination he or she can at the time. The primary aggressor is the one who gets arrested. On rare occasions both parties are arrested
The bail for Domestic Violence is $50,000. That means someone would either have to bring $50,000 to the jail or pay $5,000 to a bail bondsman. If no bail is posted, the person will remain in custody until their arraignment. The arraignment must take place within 48 hours of the arrest excluding weekends and court holidays. At the arraignment, the judge will determine whether or not the keep the bail the same, lower the bail amount or release the person on their own recognizance to appear. Some people choose to wait until they see a judge before bailing out but most people we talk to want out of jail ASAP.
The process for getting a bail bond for someone who was arrested by the Placentia Police Department is quite simple. The first step would be to call to speak with one of our bail agents. The bail agent will explain what will happen next because each situation plays out differently. The basic steps are filling out the bail bond application, paying for the bail bond, posting the bail bond and then the release of the person from custody. Bail agents typically meet people in their home or at the jail.
After the person is bailed out, they must make all required court appearances for the case the bail bond was posted for. The arraignment is usually scheduled by the jailer to be 5 days from the date of arrest excluding weekends and holidays. The bail bond is good for all court appearances, not just the first one, and it allows a person to remain out of custody pending the case being resolved.
