At Frank Calabretta’s Bail House, we know how important it is for our community to have access to a 24 hour bondsman. If an arrest occurs, a defendant does not want to wait in jail for any longer than he or she has to. At Frank Calabretta’s we can provide anytime bail bonds in Placer County to help you or a loved one get out of jail fast and have been doing so effectively for over forty years!
What are the benefits of a 24 hour bondsman versus paying bail yourself?
While some defendants are able to pay the bail amount themselves, the court usually sets a fairly high rate to encourage people to return for their scheduled court appearance, and this high rate is simply not affordable for many people. Not only that, but even if you have the money to pay your own bill, the funds do not get returned to you until after you appear in court. Your family may need that money in the meantime and it will be inconveniently tied up in the court system while you await trial.
If you go with a 24 hour bondsman instead, you can pay a small fee up front and essentially get a bail bond loan to cover the bail for you. In this case you do not have to dip into your savings to pay bail and the bail house receives the money back from the court system once you have appeared as scheduled at your court date. If you do not appear, the 24 hour bondsman will send a bounty hunter to retrieve you and bring you into court, so it is essential that you keep this commitment.
What is the bail process like?
Because we have a 24 hour bondsman on site, the bail process can begin at any time of the day or night, 365 days a year, even on holidays and weekends. Once a person is arrested, they are usually taken to the local jail and processed into the system. This includes such things as paperwork, a mug shot, fingerprinting, and typically the amount of bail is set at this time.
In certain circumstances, bail may not be set if the defendant is considered a flight risk or the crime was extremely serious, but in most instances, bail is established and communicated to the defendant at this time. This is the point at which the defendant gets a phone call and he or she may call on a 24 hour bondsman at Frank Calabreatta’s directly or can contact a trusted friend or family member to get the process started for them.
When you speak with a 24 hour bondsman at Frank Calabretta’s Bail House, we will answer any questions you have over the phone and can help you start the process of obtaining a bail bond for yourself or a loved one immediately. You pay a much smaller fee than bail (usually 10% of the bail cost) and complete necessary paperwork, and the 24 hour bondsman directly pays the bail money to the court system on your behalf. Once this occurs, the officers can begin the process of releasing you from jail. Your responsibility after that is to show up to your scheduled court date.
