My sister was falsely accused of a crime. She was arrested earlier this afternoon and her bail was set at $80,000. The family is confident the case will be dismissed as soon as she sees a judge. We want to bail her out of the Las Colinas jail but we’re being told the cost to purchase her bond will be $8,000. Our parents are retired and I just recently lost my job, so money is pretty tight right now. Is there anyone who can sell us cheap bail bonds in Imperial Beach? My sister isn’t a flight risk and she’s never been in trouble before.
Most people are unaware that the California bail industry is heavily regulated. It is overseen by the Department of Insurance (DOI) and the DOI is the agency that tells bail bonds companies how much to charge clients. The 10% rate is set according to state law. Any bondsman who charges more or less than the legal rate could lose their license, be subject to fines, criminal prosecution and possibly jail time.
The good news is that you won’t necessarily need to come up with the full 10% all at once. There are some Imperial Beach bail bonds companies that offer payment plans. In most cases the bondsman will require a cosigner who has good credit. If your credit is shaky they may still be able to work with you. Every company is required to charge the same rate but that is not to say they are all alike. Be sure to ask the person you’re working with about their company’s eligibility requirements are for bail bonds financing.
