Many people who have never needed to help get someone out of a Riverside jail before will often use the terms bail and bail bail bonds interchangeably. What they do not realize is that they are not one in the same.
When someone is arrested the court will likely grant them bail. This is a monetary amount that when posted with the jail, will allow the defendant to be temporarily released from custody pending their next court date. Bail is set by cross referencing the crime the defendant has been accused of against the county bail schedule. This is a document that is set each year by a panel of Superior Court judges that lists different bail amounts for different crimes.
Bail is often set in the tens of thousands of dollars and most people do not have immediate access to such large sums of money. This is where Riverside bail bonds companies come in. For a fee equal to 10% of the total bail amount, you can hire a bondsman to post a bond with the jail. Riverside bail bonds promise that if the defendant is released pending trial they will return to court when required.
