How Bail Bonds Work!

  • All the defendant's information like name, date of birth, etc. Will be taken and inserted into the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s database along with a personal picture.

  • The defendant will get their fingerprints scanned via the LiveScan machine – which is sent spontaneously to the Department of Justice.

  • The Department of Justice will ensure that the defendant is not wanted by any other department or state through the fingerprint scan.

  • The inmate will not be released on bail until the results from the LiveScan are received.

  • Once the defendant has been cleared, our agent will try and contact the jail to get the necessary information to start the bail process.

  •  As soon as all the paperwork is filled out, our agent will instantly turn the bond in, and the department will verify the legitimacy of the information included to complete the jail release process.

  • Once the defendant is out of jail, they will be admitted to signing some paperwork and handed a receipt for the bond bearing all the court information.

  • The defendant will have to show up to all their court dates or the court will issue a bench warrant.

  • Once the case is completed, and any fines paid off, the court will exonerate the bond, which means that the bail bond is finished and will no longer affect the defendant.

Whenever someone is arrested in or near Culver City, they will most likely be taken to the Culver City Police Department, which is located at 4040 Duquesne Ave Culver City, CA 90232. As soon as the defendant arrives at the police department, he or she will be met by an officer on duty, who will proceed to confiscate any personal belongings that the defendant may have on him or her at the time.

 

When the officer has inventoried all of the belongings, he or she will give the defendant a set of jail clothing and begin the booking process. The jailer will then take the defendant to start the booking process by asking the inmate for his or her personal information such as his or her name, date of birth, etc. Once the jailer has all of that information, he or she will send the inmate to have his or her picture taken and the jailer will enter all of this information into the Los Angeles County Sheriffs database.

 

When the jailer has completed inputting all of the information, he or she will then send the inmate to get his or her fingerprints scanned. The fingerprinting process is usually what takes the longest during the entire booking process. The jailer will scan the inmate’s fingerprints via a LiveScan machine, which is directly connected to the Department of Justice. The Department of Justice will then run the prints through all of the databases in the country to make sure that the inmate is not wanted by any other department in any other state.

 

The jailer will not be able to release any inmate before the results from the LiveScan have been received. In this time, one of our agents will meet with you in order for you to fill out all of the information necessary for the bail bond. Once the inmate has been cleared our agent will contact the jail and gather all of the bail information and begin the jail release process.

 

Once all of the paperwork is filled out, our agent will immediately turn the bond in and the jailer will verify that all of the information is correct in order to complete the jail release process. Once the defendant has been released from jail, our agent will then have him or her sign some paperwork and will hand one of you a receipt for the bond. This receipt will have all of the defendant’s court information.

 

It is extremely important that the defendant shows up to his or her court date or the court will issue a bench warrant for the defendant. Once the defendant has completed his case and paid any fines, then the court will exonerate the bond, which means that the bail bond is complete and will no longer affect the inmate.
