We at Contra Costa Bail Bond Store know that at times it may seem like bail is set at random, that there is no rhyme or reason for bail amounts, but there is. Bails amounts are decided based on a list created by the state government called a bail schedule. Every arresting agency in the state has access to the bail schedule and uses it to assign bail amounts to arrested persons.
A bail schedule is a list of every crime as defined by state law and sometimes county law. Each crime is assigned an amount for how much bail should be set at. In some cases two people can receive different bail amounts for the same crime. This is because court judges are allowed to alter the price of someone’s bail based on a person’s criminal record or attitude in court.
Never attempt to go to the jail were you’re loved one is being and try to negotiate a lower price with the arresting officers. No one but a judge can alter the amount of someone’s bail and a judge will not do so until the defendant’s arraignment. Trying to get your loved one’s bail amount lowered before the arraignment is a waist of your time.
Your time is better spent trying to get your loved one bailed out. When you use a bail bondsman to bail someone out of jail, you do not have to pay the full price of the bond. Bail premiums are regulated by the state so you’ll never have to pay more than 10% in California. At Contra Costa Bail Bond Store we’ll help you take care of your loved one as if they were a part of our family.
