BAIL PROCESS & COST
Once the inmate has been booked into the system at the Sutter County Jail, you will be able to post bail for their release. If the bail amount is low enough, you may choose to pay the full amount directly to the jail or courthouse. So long as the defendant makes it to all court appearances, this money will be returned to you after the case is concluded.
However, bail amounts in California are among the highest in the nation, and more often than not, bail isn’t an easy amount to afford. If this is the case, seeking the help of a licensed bondsman will be your best option. If your loved one isn’t bailed out, they could end up sitting in jail for the duration of the court proceedings. That could take weeks, months or even longer.
With a bondsman, you will only have to pay 10% of the total bail amount. They will then post bail for the defendant so that they can be released as soon as possible. For instance, if bail is $10,000 you will pay a bondsman $1,000 for their services. It’s important to remember that this money will not be returned regardless of the outcome of the case.
