How Does Bail Work?

When you’ve been arrested for a crime, you’re immediately booked into jail and assigned a Bail Bond amount based on the charges you’re being accused of. California State law says that if a person accused of crime would like to be released on Bond, they must retain the services of a Bail Bondsman to assume liability over them by paying the entire Bail Bond amount to the San Diego Central Jail so that they may be released from custody. In exchange for the Bail Bond loan, the Defendant must pay 10% of the total Bail amount to the Bail Bondsman for services rendered of giving them the entire Bail Bond loan and becoming liable for their attendance in court.

It takes a full 8 hours for anyone arrested in San Diego County to become eligible for Bail and processed for release. The first two hours are dedicated to the Sheriff’s “booking in” the Defendant so that the proper charges are reflected online to post Bail.

Once inside the jail you will be allowed to call Abel’s Bail Bonds at (619-339-5280) so that we can begin working on getting your Bail Bond loan approved through the Department of Insurance (DOI).

Our Job as Bail Bondsmen is to mediate and negotiate the terms and conditions of release with the “DOI” by providing sufficient evidence to their Underwriters that the Defendant asking for the Bail Bond loan is a “None Flight Risk” and will attend every Court date assigned to them by the Courts. If a Defendant fails to appear to any court date a warrant is immediately issued in the system and the Court then holds the Bail Bondsman responsible by holding the entire Bail Bond loan in contempt until the Defendant is re-arrested and brought back into custody by the Bail Bondsman, this is referred to as a “Forfeiture”.
