Many people do not realize that when a person is arrested, there are a number of things that will need to take place before a jailer will allow a bond to be posted.
When a woman is arrested in San Diego they will likely be transported the Las Colinas Jail in order to be booked into the system. Their information will be entered into the computer system, they will have their photographs taken and they will also be fingerprinted. The jailer will then submit those prints to the Department of Justice (DOJ) in order to have the defendant undergo a national warrant screen and background check. The DOJ receives prints from every arrestee in the United States. It often takes them between 4 and 6 hours to return the results. The jailer will not allow any bondsman to post a bond for someone until the fingerprint screen comes back.
You will still want to contact a bondsman in Las Colinas as soon as you learn of the defendants arrest. The agent will begin by asking you several questions about this person including their name, date of birth, nature of the crime they are being accused of and their bail amount, if you know it. They may also ask how you know the defendant, whether they are employed and if they have family in the area, and if you are willing to take responsibility they will go to court.
From there, the bondsman will prepare a customized contract that you will need to sign. The paperwork will take about 10 minutes to fill out. Once this is done and payment has been arranged an agent will be dispatched to the jail to post the bond. You will want to keep in mind that the defendant’s release will not be immediate. It often takes the jail an additional 4 to 6 hours to process their release.
