LASD Inmate Locator
Gorman is near the border of Los Angeles and Kern Counties, so while it may be closer to some Kern County Sheriff Stations, the fact that it’s in Los Angeles County means that deputies working out of the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station are responsible for providing Gorman’s law enforcement needs.
When someone is arrested in Gorman, they’re taken to the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station to undergo booking and processing. After that, bail is set and it will be possible to obtain their release via bail bond. The on-site jail located at the station is a type 2 facility, which means it’s only designed to house inmates for up to 72-hours. Those who are not bailed out within that period will likely be transferred to Twin Towers (if the inmate is male) or the Lynwood Jail (if the inmate is female).
These larger facilities are much, much busier, and the transfer process can add anywhere from 12 to 24-hours to an inmate’s time in custody as they go through another round of processing. The transfer process can often be avoided entirely, though, if the bail bond process is begun while the inmate is still located at the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station Jail.
What is a Bail Bond?
When bail is set, the amount in which it is set indicates the amount of money that the courts will want in order to let an inmate out of custody pending their trial. The money serves as motivation to ensure that a defendant shows up for all of their court appointments. When the defendant shows up and completes the court process, the money is returned. When they do not, the money is forfeited to the courts.
The amount in which bail is set can be expensive, which leads many people to look for a bail bondsman to help them out. A bail bondsman charges 10% of the total bail amount to secure a defendant’s release from custody. This amount is non-refundable. When the defendant shows up for all of their court dates, the bond is exonerated and everyone goes their merry way. When the defendant does not show up for court, the indemnitor is still responsible for paying the full amount of bail to the courts.
What is an Indemnitor?
The indemnitor is the signer of the bail bond. When filling out the bail bond application forms and indemnitor’s agreement, the signer of the bail bond agrees to become financially responsible if the defendant does not show up for court. That being said, bail can be very expensive, so only bail out those whom you know and trust.
