Most people don’t spend too much time thinking about the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor. That changes if you or a loved one is arrested. As soon as you hear that they’re being charged with a felony, you start to panic and wonder how the seriousness of the charge will impact everything, including your ability to get a California bail bond.
The bad news is that the bail is usually higher for a felony arrest. This means you’ll need a bigger bail bond. It also means that the 10% you’ll have to pay for the bail bond will likely be more than the fee you’d pay if you were only charged with a misdemeanor.
The good news is that felony charges don’t prevent you from qualifying for a California bail bond. Here at Happy’s Bail Bonds in Bakersfield, we have a great deal of experience providing bail bonds for individuals who have been charged with a felony.
Some felonies have a standard bail attached to them. If you’ve been charged with one of these, you can contact us and arrange to have the bail bond posted almost as soon as you’ve completed the booking process.
Other felonies, or in cases that involve multiple felony charges, you’ll likely require a bail hearing. While we can’t provide you with a bail bond before the hearing, you are free to contact us, to sign a contract. The advantage of contacting us before the bail hearing is that we can have everything ready to go. As soon as the bail hearing concludes, we’ll write the bail bond. The bail bond could easily be processed before you’re returned to your cell.
