Bail and bail bonds
When a defendant is brought before the judge, the judge can determine a bail or set no bail. The bail is an amount of money that the court will collect and hold for the defendant until the case is finalized and closed. Bail is sort of an insurance that the defendant will attend all their court appointments. The level of bail can be thousands, tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, more money than most people have. Sometimes the judge sets no bail, which means that the defendant must remain in jail until the case is closed or the decision is reversed.

How Bail Bond Services work? Bail Bond Services are companies and agents who can pay the court the full bail for you to release of the defendant. The bail bond is what they pay to the court. The bail bond agent will contract with you to pay them a non-refundable fee of 10% of the bail in exchange. For instance, if bail is $10,000, you will pay the bondsman $1,000.

As long as the defendant appears in court as directed, when the case is over, the court will exonerate your bond. This means that the court refunds all the bail to the bond agent. If, however, the defendant does not attend their court appointments, then the bail gets forfeited and the court keeps the bail.

Sometimes it may be necessary for the Bail Bond agent to collect collateral from you. Collateral is valuable assets or credit cards that can be used as a physical guarantee that the defendant will appear in court. If the defendant fails to appear in court, and you can't re-pay the bail money to the bail bondsman, then your collateral will be used to pay the court.

Bail Guidelines in Santa Ana Judges in California use a bail schedule as a guideline to help determine the amount of bail suited to the case at hand. The judge then applied several additional factors to determine bail. These include the risk of flight of the defendant if released, their criminal history, and the facts of the case:
