Understanding the Process of DUI Booking and Bail

In the state of California, DUI offenses are taken very seriously. The penalties and long-lasting consequences can follow you for years. When facing a DUI charge, you need to understand the process and procedures that will follow. After the initial arrest, you will be taken to the local law enforcement station. You will be photographed, fingerprinted, and placed in a holding cell. The only way to avoid staying in jail is to have a friend or family member agree to post bail. The average bail amount in California is $20,000. If you do not have enough funds to pay for the release of your loved one, you have the option of going through a bail bond agency. A bail bond is 10% of the entire bail amount. If a bail bond agency is charging a lower amount than 10%, they are acting illegally as the state of California regulates bail bond rates.

The purpose of posting bail is to give assurance to the court that the individual who was charged with DUI will show up for their court appearance. This is why it is so important to only post bail for those you know will appear at court. As the person who posted bail, you will be held civilly liable and the accused person could be considered a fugitive. An Oxnard DUI attorney from our firm can help you through this process and defend you in court.
