If you’re looking for Los Angeles bail bonds for felony charges, we can help. A felony is loosely described as a crime that’s more serious than a misdemeanor, usually involving violence, that can be punishable by more than 1 year in state prison. Of course, it’s quite possible for someone who is suspected of committing a crime to be charged with a felony even if the crime itself was non-violent in nature. For example, California Penal Codes 548-551 PC, the laws governing auto insurance fraud, can often be charged as either misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the circumstances of the case.
When someone is suspected of committing a California felony, they will be arrested and taken to the local police station where booking and processing takes place. The procedure includes taking the suspect’s photograph, recording their fingerprints and conducting a national background check to look for other outstanding warrants. Once complete, bail will be set and it will be possible to secure their release via bail bond. When arrested on felony charges, the booking and processing procedure can take a few hours to complete, and setting bail is the final step, so it will be impossible to bail someone out of jail any earlier.
When you want to bail someone out on felony charges, give us a call and provide us with their name, birth date, and the date and time of their arrest. If not all of this information is available – we can still help you out! We’ll use the information you provide to locate them within the system and verify their eligibility for bail. Once that’s been established, we have you fill out our short, simple bail bond application forms and sign the indemnitor’s agreement. Last, we send one of our bail bondsmen to the jail to post the bond and the defendant will be released once they are processed out.
