Wire Fraud Charges – California Penal Code 18 USC 1343
If someone has committed wire fraud, they knowingly devised a scheme to defraud, or to obtain money or property by means of creating fraudulent pretenses, representations or promises that were transmitted via radio, wire or television communication. Further, in order to deliberately deceive in order to secure unfair or unlawful gain, they created writings, signs, signals, pictures or sounds in the means to execute such scheme. Punishment for wire fraud can lead to imprisonment for not more than five years, fines or both. However, if for any reason, the fraud affects a financial institution; the person can be fined not more than $1,000,000 or imprisoned for not more than 30 years or both. Wire fraud, which is a “white collar crime”, can lead to very serious consequences.
What is a Bail Bond?
Bail bonds are also known as “Surety bonds”. They are signed contracts between a licensed bail agent and the signer (indemnitor) or co-signers. Bail Bonds guarantee that the defendant will appear for their court appearances. Failure to appear, also known as a “skip”, will result in the signers of the bail bond (the indemnitor) to pay the full amount of the bond to the court.
Without bail bonds, people who have been arrested may be kept in jail until their arraignment or trial. At the arraignment the defendant is brought before a judge to hear the charges and enter a plea. This waiting time can often take up to a week or more. The defendantsÂ’ job, family or school responsibilities can be put in jeopardy. As an alternative, defendants have a bail bond posted so they can continue with their lives until the trial is complete. When released on bail, a defendant has opportunity to obtain legal counsel and will typically not see a judge for approximately one month.

Once bailed out, it is very important that both the indemnitor and the defendant make sure to attend every court date without fail. A warrant for the arrest of the defendant may be issued if they fail to appear in front of the judge. This is also called a “forfeiture”. Typically, a missed court appearance is a simple mistake which can be corrected with a few phone calls to our bail company.
If the Defendant is not Bailed Out
If the defendant is not bailed out or otherwise released, she or he will usually remain in custody until arraignment and potentially until the matter has been resolved in court. The benefit of being released on bail is that the defendant will have time obtain qualified legal services and present the case in a complete manner.
Bail Bond Fees
By law the California bail bond fee will cost 10% of the total amount of bail. As an example, if the bail amount is $20,000; you will be charged $2,000 from the bail bond company. This amount is non-refundable. While most of our clients choose to pay by major credit card, we also accept cash. Further, we make it easy by offering our clients several bail bond payment options to choose from.
