When someone has been arrested and taken to one of the San Diego jails the fastest way to get them released from custody is to work with a San Diego bail bondsman. The alternative to hiring a bondsman would be to take the defendant’s full bail amount in the form of cash or a cashiers check and posting it at the jail. Many people don’t have immediate access to large sums of money. If they do, collecting it may involve a trip across town during rush hour traffic, finding parking, sitting down with a bank employee and subsequent travel to the facility where the defendant is being detained.
San Diego bail bonds agents are experts in the field of bail and they’re well versed in what needs to be done in order to get someone out of jail fast. For a fee equal to 10% of the defendant’s total bail they will dispatch a bondsman to post a bond. This is a piece of paper that promises if released, the defendant will return to court when required in order to resolve their case. The biggest difference between cash bail and bail bonds is with cash bail, as long as the defendant makes all of their necessary court appearances the cash will be refunded to the person who posted it at the end of the case. Bail bonds, on the other hand, are an item of purchase and the money you pay to a bondsman is a non-refundable fee.
