Santa Clarita Sheriff Station and Jail Information
Mint Canyon is patrolled by deputies working out of the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station. Upon arrest, individuals will be taken there where they will undergo booking and processing, a procedure that can take anywhere from 45-minutes to several hours. Once this procedure has been completed, bail will be set for those who are eligible and it will be possible to obtain their release via bail bond.
If an individual is not released in 72-hours, or if the jail becomes overcrowded, they will likely be transferred to one of the long-term holding facilities in downtown Los Angeles. Men are taken to Twin Towers while women are taken to CRDF – a.k.a. the Lynwood Jail.
Once transferred, inmates can expect to spend at least an additional 24-hours in custody as they go through another round of processing. When the bail bond process has been started while the inmate is still located at the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station, transfer can often be avoided altogether.
Options for Release from Jail
Bail bonds aren’t the only option an inmate has for release. Depending on what they were arrested for, inmates may be eligible for one of the following options. However, bail bonds are by far the fastest and least expensive method for getting someone out of jail.
- Cash Bonds – This is by far the most expensive option. During court business hours, an individual can pay the full amount of bail to the court clerk in order to secure an inmate’s release. If the inmate shows up for all of their court obligations, the money will be refunded minus any relevant court fees. If the defendant does not show up for court, all of the money will be forfeit to the court and a warrant will be issued for the defendant’s arrest.
- Property Bonds – Property can be put up in lieu of cash to bail someone out of jail provided that the person who owns the property owns equity in it totaling at least 150% of the full amount of bail. The courts are very thorough in their appraisal and qualifying process, and property bonds can take weeks or months to go through.
- Own Recognizance – Inmates can sometimes be released on their own recognizance as long as they provided a written promise to return to court at the appointed date and time. Not everyone is granted O.R. release.
- Citation Release – Citation release is typically reserved for minor infractions and is similar to O.R. release, but it does not require that the defendant provide a written promise to return to court at the appointed date and time.
The Bail Bond Process
Bailing someone out of jail is easy, and it all begins by giving us a call and providing us with some information on the inmate so that we can locate him or her within the system and verify their eligibility for bail. Once that’s been established, we have you fill out the short, simple bail bond application forms and sign the indemnitor’s agreement. Last, we send someone to the jail to post the bond and your friend or loved one will be released a little while later.
If you are unable to meet with us in person, are out of the area, or simply feel more comfortable handling things from your home or office, we can easily complete the bail bond application process from start to finish via phone, fax or email.
If bail is set at $15,000, then the cost of a bail bond will be no more than $1,500.
We accept a variety of payment options, including major debit/credit cards (Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover) as well as cash, business or personal checks, money orders, bank account transfers and money wire.
If you’re interested in financing a bail bond, let us know. We provide a variety of flexible payment plans designed to fit most any budget.
