What happens when someone is arrested?
When someone is arrested, they are taken to the jail inside the Whittier Police Department, and processed as an inmate. As part of this process, their fingerprints are taken and checked against a number of databases to determine their identity and if they have any outstanding warrants. A mug shot is also taken. The process can take several hours. After they have been checked in, they are eligible to be bailed out of jail. The holding cell holds prisoners up to 96 hours after which they are turned over to the court.
How much does it cost to bail someone out of jail?
Once the inmate has been processed into jail their bail amount will be determined. In order to be bailed out of jail there are a few options.
- Put up the full amount of the bond with the court. This money must be certified funds. All of this money will be returned once the case has been resolved in court.
- Employ the services of a bail bondsman, who typically charge 10% of the total bond amount.
The fee a bail bondsman charges is a non-refundable, one-time fee for posting the bond. This money is paid to the bail agent for the service of putting up the full bond amount with the court. In addition to paying the 10% to the bonding company, someone will also have to sign on behalf of the defendant as the Indemnitor, guaranteeing that they will make all of their court appearances and that they are financially responsible for that person in case they don’t go to jail.
