The Need for Bail Bonds in Anaheim
While no one plans on being arrested and taking out a bail bond, the reality is that bail bonds are of major benefit to low and mid income individuals seeking to get themselves or a loved one out of jail fast.
Bail was established to allow defendants the right to avoid incarceration while awaiting their trial, so they could hire a good defense lawyer and prepare themselves for court. By setting bail high enough to discourage defendants fleeing justice, however, it becomes un-affordable to most people.
But bail bonds allow you to pay only a portion of the total bail while being liable for the remainder should the defendant fail to appear in court. In California, bail bonds agencies are legally required to charge a premium of exactly 10% on the full bail amount. This is reduced to 8% if the defendant was referred to the bail bondsman by an attorney.
Alternatives to Bail Bonds
There are three alternative ways to get out of jail besides taking out a bail bond, as follows:
- Cash Bonds: Under California Penal Code (PC) Section 1269, you can pay in cash/cashier's check at the jail facility, but considering that bail in Orange County is often set in the range of $10,000 to $100,000, this is not practical for most people.
- Property Bonds: PC Section 1276.5 allows defendants to post bail using a property deed, but they must have twice as much equity as the bail amount, and getting an appraisal and other paperwork done makes this method slow, leaving you in jail in the meantime.
- Own Recognizance: The California state constitution allows for defendants in good standing in their community to be released on the mere promise they will appear in court (called "own recognizance" or O.R.), but few qualify, especially in felony cases.
Do to the difficult or restricted nature of the other options, most Anaheim residents use a bail bond to get themselves or a loved one out of jail before their arraignment.
Bail Bonds "Basics"
Under PC Section 1276, a state-licensed and fully insured bail bonds agent can post bail in behalf of an arrestee, receiving a 10% non-refundable premium as his/her pay. Collateral, such as automobiles, bank accounts, stocks/bonds, or expensive jewelry, is also typically required to secure the bail bond and can be lost if the bond is forfeited.
The bail bond is a contract between the agent and the bond's co-signer. It binds the bail bond agent as liable for the full bail amount if the defendant does not make all his/her court appearances. It also binds the co-signer as liable to the bail bond agency for the full bail amount if the bail is forfeited to the court.
In the event a defendant "skips bail," the bail bondsman can act as a "bounty hunter" to find the defendant and bring him back to court. If the bail was paid in cash, it would be irreversibly lost after a failure to appear in court; but, it is possible that the judge would reinstate a forfeited bail bond once the defendant finally appears in court.
The Bail Bonds Process in Anaheim
In Anaheim, arrestees are usually first taken to the Anaheim Police Department to be booked and processed. Booking may include such things as ID-ing the suspect, running a Live Scan fingerprint-based background check, recording the cause of arrest, and checking the bail amount indicated on the Orange County Bail Schedule. Booking at the Anaheim Police Department usually takes only minutes to complete, but the busyness level at the jail will affect the time required.
As long as no outstanding warrants or previous bail-skipping incidents are detected on the Live Scan, bail can be posted immediately after booking is complete. The bail bond paperwork takes less than 30 minutes to fill out and can even be done over the phone if necessary. After bail is posted, it normally takes only a few minutes for the inmate to be released from the Anaheim Police Department Jail.
However, the Anaheim PD Jail is small and often gets overcrowded. In this case, you would need to act very quickly to prevent a transfer to the Orange County Jail in Santa Ana. Once at this larger facility, booking times are much slower, taking as long as 12 hours, and release times can take 3 to 8 hours.
We at Bail Bond Professionals have intricate knowledge of the inner workings of the Anaheim/Orange County jail and court system and can minimize the time you or your loved one spend at either the Anaheim Police Department or the Orange County Jail. We will also guide you through the process step-by-step and explain the details of the bail bonds agreement so you know what to do after the release.

The Anaheim police department typically books and holds defendants for one or two days or until they have been arraigned in court. After arraignment, they are bused to the Orange County jail in Santa Ana. However, for reasons such as overcrowding, the Anaheim jail may choose to send defendants to the OC jail prior to being arraigned.

When you call, you will talk directly to one of the owners, Jason or Chris, who will clearly explain the Anaheim bail bonds process and answer all your questions. If it is convenient for you, we will arrange to meet at the jail and have your family member or friend released within 10 to 20 minutes.
