Out of San Diego Jail Fast
In order to get someone out of a San Diego jail as quickly as possible, you’ll want to contact a bail bondsman as soon as you learn of their arrest.
When someone is taken into custody they will be taken to one of the San Diego jails in order to be booked and processed. They will have their fingerprints and mug shots taken, they will undergo a national background check and warrant screen and their information will be entered into the computer system. This process can take anywhere between four and six hours depending on how busy the jail is. Although the jail will not accept a bail bond until the defendant is fully booked in, starting the process as soon as possible will allow for their swiftest release.
Many of our clients find that filling out the necessary paperwork via fax and email is the most convenient way to move forward. In fact, we are one of the few companies that do not require you to come into the office as we offer online bail bonds for San Diego. Most choose to make payment via credit or debit card in order for fastest service.
Once the paperwork has been received by our office and payment has been processed, we will dispatch bondsman to the jail as soon as they indicate they will accept the bond. You should know that the defendant’s release will not be immediate. Getting out of jail is not like checking out of a hotel, and if the jails are busy, are in the middle of shift changes or have a large number of people who need to be booked in, all of these things take precedence over releasing people from custody. In most cases a defendant will be released between four and six hours after a bond is posted.
This means if someone has just been arrested you can expect that, on average, it may take between eight and 12 hours before they will be released from custody.
