James A. Musick Facility

Located in Orange County in the city of Irvine, the James A. Musick Facility is an 100-acre minimum security correctional compound. Beds for 1,322 inmates fill the facility, which originally opened in 1963.  If a loved one is being held at this facility, you probably need the help of a good Orange County bail bonds company.  Low-risk inmates are housed at the facility, including individuals charged and/or convicted with crimes such as assault, burglary, DUI, or  failure to comply with a  child support order. Inmates with any serious criminal charges are not permitted a transfer to the facility. The facility also houses ICE detainees per a five-year service contract with the federal government. Inmates are housed at this jail who are awaiting trial until they post bond or are sentenced, as well as those who’ve already been sentenced in court.

Many of the inmates held at the facility participate in farm-type rehabilitation programs. These hands-on activities coined the jail’s name, The Farm. The rehabilitation programs offered at the facility help it thrive, while also teaching inmates new skills they can use once they leave the facility.

Bail Information

Bailing someone out of the Musick facility takes place at the Theo Lacy Center or at the Intake Release Center. The Music facility is not equipped with employees to handle in bail bonds. If you wish to post a bond for an inmate, you’ll need to visit one of these locations. The IRC is located downtown Santa Ana, while Theo Lacy is located near the Musick facility. Cash, cashier’s checks, personal checks, money orders, are accepted as form of bond payment. Many people choose to use the services of a local bondsman when bailing an inmate out of jail. Using the services of a bondsman reduces the bond to just 10% of the original amount, plus a small bondsman fee. For example, a bondsman would collect $500 for a bond  of $5,000, in addition to his fees.
