Arrest and Booking Process
Upon being arrested for burglary, it can take anywhere from 2 to 6 hours to photograph, fingerprint and ultimately book the arrestee into the jails’ computer system. Most bail bonds can be posted at any of the California County jails 24 hours a day, however, some inmates may have to remain in jail until their case has been settled in court. When you call us for a consultation, our licensed agents will always explain the arrest, booking and charges to you.
Charges Associated with Burglary
If someone has entered, broken into, or forcefully entered a home, dwelling, car, etc., this is known as burglary. Even if they were caught merely trespassing or just walking through the door it may be considered burglary. There are degrees of burglary charges which vary from first degree to third degree. A person can face up to one year minimum sentence and up to several years maximum sentence in a state prison if found guilty. If there is a previous record, the defendant may be facing a much longer sentence.
A felony can be charged if it has to do with a residential burglary. If it has to do with commercial burglary, it may be considered a misdemeanor charge. However, that goes to say, if the commercial building is armed with security, e.g., a bank, this would be considered a felony.
Defendant and Indemnitor Responsibilities
It is the defendant’s responsibility to go to court each and every time required by the court. If a defendant misses their court appearance, our bail company will call both the bail bond signer (indemnitor) and the defendant. If there was a misunderstanding, the bond company will make arrangements with the court for a new date. Often this situation can easily be fixed.
A warrant for the arrest of the defendant will be issued if they fail to appear. Therefore, both the indemnitor and the defendant must make every effort the defendant attends all court dates without fail.
Completing the Process – Release from Jail
After the paperwork is finalized, a licensed agent will file, or “post”, the bond with the jail which will result in the release of the defendant. Again, jail facilities vary in the amount of time to process the bond and release the detainee. From start to finish, this bail agency will generally complete the paperwork and posting process in 1-2 hours. For this service, the customer is charged a bail bond fee (generally 10% of the full bail amount, which is mandated by state law).

Paying For a Bail Bond
