How Does the Bail Bond Process Work?

It can be a little tricky, even worrisome, to bail someone out for the first time. How much will it cost you? How long will it take? We know you have questions and we're happy to provide answers to some of the most common ones below.

Q: What is bail?

A: Bail is an arrangement made between a jail and a person charged with a crime. Courts set the monetary value of bail which must be met by the criminal defendant either with collateral, cash or a bond.

Q: How is bail set?

A: Each jail has a bail schedule (felony and misdemeanor) which consists of a list of crimes and their corresponding bail amount, set each year by a panel. The more serious the crime, the higher the bail. For example in Ventura County a high felony bail amount would be $500,000 for attempted murder of an executive officer, judge, juror and the like; a low felony bail amount would be $10,000 for second degree burglary.

Q: What is bond and what does a bondsman do?

A: People wanting to bail someone out pay a bondsman 10% of the total bail price to ensure its entirely will be paid in the event the defendant does not show up for his or her trial. The bondsman is paid a fee on top of this 10% for his services, and is responsible for making sure the defendant actually shows up in court. If he or she doesn't, the bondsman can hire a bounty hunter who has six months to find the defendant or the bondsman is liable for the entire cost of the bail price; usually this is paid through insurance carried by the bondsman.

Q: What is the cost for a bond?

A: 10% of the total bail price plus the fee charged by the bondsman for his services.
