Can I post bail right away?
|Posted on January 30, 2023 at 12:05 AM||comments ()|
The availability of bail and the ability to post it right away depends on several factors such as the severity of the charge, the defendant's flight risk, and the bail schedule set by the court. In some cases, bail may be available immediately, while in others it may take several hours or even days to be set by a judge. If the defendant is considered a flight risk or poses a danger to the community, bail may be denied. It's best to consult with a bail bondsman or a criminal defense attorney to determine the specific circumstances of your case.
In California, a defendant must see a judge within 48 hours of being arrested, excluding weekends and holidays. This initial appearance is known as an "arraignment" and is when the defendant is informed of the charges against them and has the opportunity to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty. The arraignment is also when bail is typically set, although in some cases it may be set earlier or later depending on the circumstances of the case.
The Ventura County Superior Court is located in the county seat of Ventura, California. The address is:
Ventura County Superior Court
800 S. Victoria Ave.
Ventura, CA 93009
There are several other court locations throughout Ventura County, including in the cities of Simi Valley, Oxnard, and Thousand Oaks. It's best to check the Ventura County Superior Court website or contact the court directly to confirm the location of your court appearance.

Ventura County Bail Bond Schedule
|Posted on March 7, 2020 at 5:48 AM||comments ()|
Customers ask how a certain offense bail is determined after arrest. Well each county, like Ventura, has a presumptive bail schedule that is used when arrest are made. This presumptive bail schedule is used by the booking agency to determine the bail based on the most serious offense. Lets take example someone is arrested for Felony domestic violence in Ventura County. The current bail bond schedule in Ventura County for a felony domestic is $20,000. However, there are some important things to know which could increase the bail. One would be request by the arresting agency to increase based on the circumstances of the arrest and injury. Also you would have to take into consideration of priors and if on probation. Keep in mind that on an offense involving domestic violence or any type of violent offense were the bail is increased above the bail schedule, Ventura County requires a mandatory appearance in front of a judge prior to posting bail.

Ventura County Jail Booking Process
|Posted on January 16, 2016 at 1:29 AM||comments ()|
When we receive calls from the Ventura County Jail, they are routed through a vendor that requires an account to accept collect calls from inmates. It is one of the frustrating things families have to experience when it takes a while to hear from them because they have to setup an account.
Be aware that the majority of the County jails have a phone system that requires one to open an account. Many times I receive calls from the Ventura County Jail for posting bail, and discover that they are unable to get in touch with there family to make arraignments for bail. This is were I am able to communicate with inmates families, and sometimes able to connect a 3 way calling so they may speak with family while I am able to explain the process as well.
When accepting calls from any jail, keep in mind that they are recorded. Keep the conversations to matters in regards to posting bail, or things that have no relation to the reason you are in jail. As the saying goes, "Lose lips sink ships".
Lastly, be prepared to have a credit card to open the account to accept your family or friend calls from the jail. Most require a minimum of $25 for accepting calls. For more information, contact the jail facility were your family or friend is in custody to determine who the vendor is as many county jails use different vendors to operate the jails phone systems

Bail after arrest

So you posted bail for a family or friend, now what. Will when you first posted bail, the person that was released on bail will have a future court date, which will be on the bail receipt and possibly a form the jail uses. Make sure to make not only your first appearance, but any other appearances you are ordered to appear until you are sentenced, or the charges are dismissed. While on bail, keep in mind that any time you are arrested while on bail will most likely increase the bail on the new charges. In addition, your previous bail may be revoked by the person that posted your bail. If the family or friend that one has posted bail is arrested again while on bond, it is of most importance to notify the bail bonds agency of the new arrest so proper steps can be made to avoid forfieture or most common, failure to appear on that first bond posted. Most courts in Ventura, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles to name a few also may revoke the bail after the defendant appears on new charges in custody and discharge the bail bond previously posted and request bail increase on those charges as well.
