When a person is brought to the Santa Rita Jail, they will be searched for weapons and contraband.
A medical and mental health evaluation will also generally be conducted. Santa Rita is one of the only county jails that offers this level of assessment and care.
Personal property will be collected by the staff of the jail and held until the defendant is released from the jail.
The individual will then be taken to a holding cell to await a bond posting or a hearing.
Bail Bond Cost and Payment
When it comes to bail, to get someone release there is the option to put up the entire bail amount with the County in cash or cashier’s check.
Many people don’t have that kind of money. This is when a bail bondsman comes into the picture.
When a bondsman or bail agency is used, he bond fee is 10% of the defendant’s bail. For example, if bail is $15,000 then you will pay a bondsman $1,500. This fee cannot be negotiated because it is set by the California Department of Insurance in order to keep one bondsman from undercutting another. This fee is also not returned once the case is resolved because it is payment for the service a bail bondsman provides. The bondsman assumes the financial risk for the defendant by posting the bond on their behalf.
