How San Clemente bail bonds work
The first step in getting someone out of one of the San Clemente Jail is to contact us as soon as possible. You’ll be asked to provide some basic information about the defendant including when they were arrested, what their charges are and how much their bail is. If you don’t have all of this information on hand, that’s OK. We can look that up for you in a matter of minutes. Once we know the charges and their bail amount we can help you get started with the bail bond application.
When you cosign for a defendant, your number one responsibility is making sure the defendant attends all of their required court hearings until their case is over. You’re also taking responsibility for payment of the bail bonds fee. This will be explained to you in detail before you agree to sign.

If your loved one calls you from inside one of the Orange County jails, you’ll want to do your best to remain calm. You will also want to remember that all outbound calls from the jails are recorded, and anything the defendant says could potentially be used against them in court if their case goes to trial.
When you speak with the defendant ask for them to provide only the basics: when were they arrested, where were they arrested, how much is their bail, what are their charges and is there anyone they need you to call. Do they need to be called off work? Do they have children that need to be picked up from school or daycare?
Let them know you’re doing everything you can to help get them out of jail fast. You may also want to let them know that it is not unusual for the arrest and booking process to take several hours. Not only do they need to be interviewed, have their mugshots and fingerprints taken and have their information entered into the system, the jail will also check them for outstanding warrants.
The warrant check often takes 4 to 6 hours to complete and no one is allowed to post bail bonds for a San Clemente arrest before the warrant results are returned to the jailer.
You’ll also want to keep in mind that much like there is a process to book someone into the system, the jail has another process that they need to undergo before a defendant will be released from custody. On average, defendants will be released from jail between 4 and 6 hours after their bail bond are posted.
It's not at all unusual for someone to be at the Orange County Jail for 8 to 12 hours in total, from the time they get booked in to the time they are released.
