What is the difference between Ojai bail and bail bonds?
When someone is arrested in Ojai their bail will be set according to the county bail schedule. Bail is an amount of money that is intended to guarantee the person who has been arrested will return to court. In order to be released from custody the defendant can either post that full amount at the jail in cash or they can hire a Ojai bail bonds company. For a fee equal to 10% of the total bail amount a bondsman will post a paper bond at the jail. It has a face value equal to the defendant’s bail and it serves as a guarantee that this person will appear in court when required. The 10% fee is non-refundable and is paid to the bondsman for this service.
Do you need to be a family member to help arrange Ojai bail bonds?
No. Most anyone is permitted to cosign an Ojai bail bonds contract. The most important thing the signer needs to keep in mind is that they are taking full legal responsibility the defendant will go to court to handle their case. They will also be taking responsibility in terms of paying the bondsman’s fee. If the cosigner is unable to pay that cost up front they will want to ask the agent they are speaking with if their company offers bail bonds payment financing.
