When someone is bailed out of one of the Riverside jails this does not mean they are free and clear of responsibility. They will still be required to return to court to resolve their case.
When someone is out on bail they do not have a full guarantee of freedom. There are times when the judge or the Riverside bail bonds company that wrote the bond will set forth additional “terms and conditions” the defendant must abide by. This may include the need to submit to mandatory drug and alcohol testing, the surrender of the defendant’s passport or requiring they refrain from traveling outside the state until the case concludes.
If the defendant decides to ignore these terms and conditions their bond can be revoked and they can be returned to jail at any time. If a bail bond is revoked, the money you paid to the Riverside bail bonds company will not be refunded. If you have arranged for bail bonds financing to pay for the bond, that money will still need to be paid.
If a bond is revoked the judge may require a new bond be posted in order for the defendant to remain out on bail. This can be very costly to both the defendant and their family, which is why it’s advised any terms and conditions set forth for their initial release be strictly adhered to.
