ARREST AND BOOKING
If someone is arrested in Carlsbad, they will likely be transported to the jail in San Diego for booking. The arrestee will be searched for drugs, weapons and contraband. Personal property will be collected and held until they’re released from the jail.
They will be fingerprinted and photographed, and a background check and warrant search will be done. Bail will be set according to the San Diego County bail schedule.
HOW BAIL IS SET
In California, each county has its own separate bail schedule. An annual review is done by the county judge in order to make any adjustments they deem necessary. The first concern is public safety. If the defendant poses a threat to the public, the bail amount will be higher.
If the defendant is a violent offender or a repeat offender, the judge will set a larger bail amount.
During arraignment, the judge could decide to release the defendant on his own recognizance, meaning they do not have to pay bail but must return to court for the upcoming hearing. In some cases, a defendant may be remanded to custody and no bail is permitted.
Anyone who does not get bailed out will likely spend the duration of their case in jail.
BAIL BOND COST
Bail in California is among the highest in the nation. This can make it nearly impossible for most people to be able to bail out a loved one. With the help of a bondsman, the cost of getting them out of jail is greatly reduced.
The cost of a bail bond is 10% of the total bail amount. For example, if bail is $20,000 then you will pay $2,000. The bail bond fee is set by the Department of Insurance and is not negotiable and non-refundable.
