The Basics of the Bail Bond Process in Monterey
When someone is charged with a crime in Monterey, California, one of three things may happen: the person may be released on their own recognizance, given a bail amount, or held without bail for the most serious charges. Bail is the amount of money the court requires to be paid to be released from jail. The following is how the bail bond process works in California.
The Booking and Bail Process
When someone is arrested, the first stop is the nearest police or sheriff station for booking and processing. During this process, the defendant's fingerprints and photographs are taken. A background check will also be conducted. This process usually takes 2 to 6 hours but it can take longer. After booking and processing, bail will be set based on the county's California Bail Schedule. This Bail Schedule dictates bail amounts for most charges, allowing a jail to set a bail amount before the defendant has to see a judge. Bail amounts vary depending on residency, the type of crime, and the county. Law enforcement will only accept the scheduled bail amount. If the defendant is hoping for a lower bail amount, they must go before a judge. The purpose of bail is ensuring the defendant will attend their future court appearances while being released from jail.
Bail isn't guaranteed, however. Bail may not be allowed for very serious charges. Judges can also deny bail, in which case the defendant must remain in jail until the court date.
