Arrestees taken into custody in the City of Saugus are transported to the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station to undergo booking and processing. This is the procedure in which photographs are taken, fingerprints are recorded and a national background check is conducted. Once complete, bail will be set for those who are eligible and it will be possible to obtain their release via bail bond.
Inmates who are not bailed out within 72-hours will be transferred to one of the larger jails in downtown Los Angeles. Male inmates are taken to Twin Towers Correctional Facility while females are taken to the Lynwood Jail. Once transferred, it will take an additional 12-24 hours to process the inmate into the new jail.
To avoid transfer, it’s best to begin the bail bond process while the inmate is still located at the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station jail.
How Bail is Set
The bail amount set after an inmate has gone through booking and processing is dependent on the number and nature of crimes that they have been charged with. The Los Angeles County Bail Schedule lists crimes and corresponding bail amounts that will be used to determine how much it will cost to get that person out of jail.
In rare cases, bail will not be set at all. These are typically instances in which a person is deemed to be a danger to society or poses a serious risk of flight if they are allowed out of police custody before their court date. Cases like this are few and far between, and the overwhelming majority of arrestees will be eligible for bail after their arrest.
How to Bail Someone Out
Bailing someone out of jail isn’t as complicated as one might expect. It all starts by giving us a call and providing the name, birth date and date and time of arrest of the inmate you want to bail out. We will then have you fill out the short, simple bail bond application forms and sign the indemnitor’s agreement. We will provide you with a receipt and dispatch an agent to the jail to post the bond. The process is that easy and it doesn’t take very long. As a matter of fact, in many cases it’s possible to have someone bailed out just a few hours after they were arrested.
What is an Indemnitor?
“Indemnitor” is a word that describes a person who is held financially responsible for the bail bond. When bailing an inmate out of jail, someone will need to be held financially responsible if that inmate doesn’t show up for court. The indemnitor, then, is the person who signs for the bail bond. As long as the defendant shows up for court at the appointed date and time, the indemnitor will not incur any additional expenses – no matter the outcome of the court care.
If the defendant does not show up for court, the indemnitor will be required to pay the full amount of bail to the courts, and that amount that can be considerable. That being the case, it is best to only bail out those whom you know and trust.
