How much does a $50,000 bail bond cost in Sacramento?
In California, bail amounts are determined on a county-by-county basis. Each county's courts generate what is known as a Bail Schedule which defines the amount of bail for each particular criminal charge. A bail bond is really a promissory note for a specific amount of money that must be posted with the court in exchange for freeing the detainee from custody. Once the court has set the bail amount for the charges facing an accused person, the bail bond agent must provide the court with documents indicating that the specific amount will be paid if the accused doesn't appear in court on-schedule. The bond is held by the court until the legal process is complete, resulting in either an acquittal, conviction, or dismissal of the pending charges. The State of California limits the fee a bonding agency can charge to no more than 10% of the total value of the bail bond. Call us now at (916) 444-6868!
The maximum fee that a bondsman can charge for a $50,000 bond is $5,000. Bail bond agencies are legally permitted to offer certain discounts. For example, we have discounts for those who are veterans or actively serving in the armed forces. We also have discount rates for members of many recognized labor unions, AARP members, and defendants who have already retained a lawyer. These 20% discounts cannot be combined, but they bring the cost for a $50,000 bond down from $5,000 to a much more affordable $4,000. For defendants who are referred to us by an attorney, the bond rate drops to 7%, if premium is paid in full up front. This brings the cost of the premium down to just $3,500!
