When someone is arrested they will be handcuffed, placed in the back of a police car and transported to one of the Riverside jails to be booked and processed. During this time the crime they are being charged with will be referenced against the county bail schedule. The bail schedule is a document that is set each year by a panel of judges and it provides guidelines as to what bail amounts are to correspond with what crimes. There are also other factors that may be considered when bail is being set. This includes whether the defendant has a prior history of arrest, if they are considered to be a risk to society and whether they are considered to be a flight risk.
Once the booking process is complete the fastest way to get someone released from custody is to post cash bail or to arrange for Riverside bail bonds. For cash bail you will need to take the defendant’s full bail amount, in cash, and post it at the jail. As long as they make all of their required court appearances this money will be refunded in full to the person who posted it.
Most people don’t have immediate access to the large sums of money required for cash bail. This is where a bondsman comes in. For a fee equal to 10% of the total bail, a Riverside bail bonds agent will post a piece of paper at the jail called a bail bond. This promises that if the defendant is released from custody they will return to court when required.
