Santa Clarita Bail Bonds During a Pandemic

We’re all living in uncertain times right now. With the exception of a few relatively low-population counties, a lot of us are under orders to stay at home. Any errands or other activities that put you in contact with other people should be significantly limited. So where does that leave suspects and defendants when it comes to Santa Clarita bail bonds?

A slew of prisoners was released from jail earlier in the year, as the current system has many prisoners in close contact with one another. Infectious diseases can spread incredibly quickly when people are in close-quarters. In addition to the release of prisoners, LA county enacted a “zero bail program” that saw a lot of arrested defendants immediately released from police custody after booking and processing was complete. Previously, bail was set as the last step during the booking and processing procedure. As you can probably imagine, this policy led to numerous repeat arrests. In some cases as much as three times in one day.

Despite the “no bail program,” some suspects’ crimes were severe enough to warrant remaining in police custody. Suspects in this situation are put in a precarious position.

If a friend or loved one has been arrested and taken into custody anywhere in Los Angeles or the surrounding counties, we can help you get them out of jail fast. All you need to do is give us a call as soon as you find out about the arrest and give us the defendant’s name, birth date, and the date and time of arrest so we can locate them within the system. If not all of this info is immediately available, we can still help you out.

Once the defendant is located and their eligibility for bail is established, we’ll have you fill out our short, simple, bail bond application forms and then sign an indemnitor’s agreement. Last, we send an bail agent to the jail to post the bond. The defendant will then be released a few hours later.
