My girlfriend was arrested on a domestic battery charge and we paid $2,500 to the bail bondsman who helped get her out of jail. She had her first court date today and our attorney told us the District Attorney decided they would not be pursuing the case and that the charges have been dropped. Does this mean we’ll get some of our San Diego bail bonds fees back?
The fees you pay to any California bail bonds company are considered to be earned in full at the time the defendant is released from jail. This fee will not be refunded in part or in full regardless as to the outcome of a defendant’s case. To answer your question more directly, you will not be eligible to receive any sort of refund on your girlfriend’s bail bonds fees. For more information on how bail bonds fees work, feel free to call our office anytime at 888-224-5266 to speak with a licensed bail bonds agent in your area.
