What is a Bail Bond? How does bail work?
When someone is accused of committing a crime and is subsequently arrested, they are taken to a detention center or jail like the LA County Detention Center. At this point, the person in custody is an arresttee awaiting court trial. If the accused does not want to spend one or two nights in a jail detention facility, then they will need to pay the bail either all in cash, or go to House of Bail Bonds and pay 10% of the bail for a bail bond. The bail schedule for each crime/charge is set by the judges of each county. The judges use cash bail or a bailbond as a deposit to secure the person’s return to court after they are released from jail. In order to bail, you will need one of the following:

CASH BAIL:
Payment in full (cash) at the jail for the FULL BAIL amount.

BAIL BOND:
Can be purchased for a small percentage of the bail at HOUSE OF BAIL BONDS. This is 10%, and for those that use collateral, it can be 8%. So, for example, if the bail is set at $5,000 at the jail, you pay our company 10% or $500 to get the person out of jail. Please note that Immigration Bail Bonds have higher rates and fees.

If the person released from jail does not return to court, the bail is forfeited. A bench warrrant is automatically issued by the judge and the full bail amount is due to the court.

At this point, the person that was released on a bail bond and did not return to court is a bail bond fugitive, and a Fugitive Recovery Bail Enforcement Agent, also known as a bounty hunter, will begin an investigation into the apprehension of the fugitive.
