OPTIONS FOR RELEASE FROM JAIL
There are five possibilities for gaining release.
- Citation Release – This option is only available for minor offenses. The arresting agency may issue a citation and require you to appear in court at a set date. Failing to appear as agreed may lead to the issuance of an arrest warrant.
- Own Recognizance (OR) – A judge might order release on the defendant's "own recognizance" in some minor crimes. You will have to sign an agreement to appear in court at a future date. If you’re given the option of an OR release, take it.
- Cash Bail – To take advantage of this option you must pay the full amount of bail in cash or other methods of payment accepted by the jurisdiction. Cashier’s checks and money orders are usually accepted. The full amount of bail you’ve paid will be refunded after your case is resolved. You should choose this option if the bail amount is fairly low and within your means. Even if you’re able to pay a higher bail, you may not want to tie up a large amount of cash for an indeterminate amount of time.
- Property Bond – Some courts will accept a property bond backed by real estate you own. Posting a property bond may take a long time to process. It is a real estate transaction and may require appraisal fees, title searches and escrow fees. Your equity in the property must be at least 150% of the total bond amount. You may not want to risk this option. If you’re not able to complete the court’s requirements the court will foreclose on the property.
- Bail Bond – if none of the above options are available you will have to buy a bail bond to get released. In California, the price of the bail bond is set at 10% of the full bail amount. The bail bondsman will ask you about the circumstances of your arrest and your ability to pay. You will have to fill out and application and other paperwork. Once your bond purchase is made, the bail bondsman will make payment to the court and you will be released.
