The problems many clients cause themselves when trying to get a bond reduction

The problems many clients cause themselves when trying to get a bond reduction

Someone has been arrested and their bond has been set so high there is no way you and your family can post the bond. You need a bail bond reduction. Whether this is because the premium or because of the collateral needed you are faced with the fact that bail bond amount must be reduced to get them out of jail or they are stuck.

Usually the first problem I see is that clients do not listen or hear the advise of their attorney.

I can’t count how many times I have seen this and it hurts to watch over and over. Here is what I mean. You get one shot at a bond reduction hearing and unless there is a change of circumstance in the case you are stuck with the outcome. This means that if you are not successful at getting the judge to reduce the bond you are forced with the defendant stuck in jail or finding the money and collateral to pay for the existing bond amount.

When a family member is arrested emotions are high and the clock is ticking. Clients want the attorney to jump in and make it happen and fast often times feeling if they are not quick about it that they are not a good attorney or doing their job.

 

If you attorney tells you that you are not ready for a bond hearing you should listen as to why.

The attorney knows that first off its generally an uphill battle and that they only have one shot. Being prepared is important but getting case information from the Police or District Attorney quickly isn’t going to happen.

The bond amount is set based on multiple factors such as the CA Bail Schedule, the charges, the defendants likeliness to show up in court, danger to the community etc. In order for them to argue why your bail should be reduced they must have all of the things that will hurt or help your argument.

Being prepared means not only hearing what the defendant says happened but what the police report or DA file says after all this is what your bail was set based on and this is what your fighting. In addition they need to know if the defendant had priors, felonies, misdemeanors, failure to appears even on traffic tickets, what the police report says, who else is involved and what are the positions in the case meaning who is charged with what.

Timing – when you ask for the bond hearing is another big factor.

 

All cases are different as are district attorneys and judges. When you go to court, what judge is on the bench and what district attorney you get makes all the difference. An example of timing would be you have a case where they are charging 8 people with gang and conspiracy charges and the judge has denied the others a reduction that morning. If your attorney wants to hold off on the hearing, try to move it to a different day, DA or court room you should listen. Lots of people become google lawyers but don’t understand the matrix and/or politics of it all.

If you want the best chance at getting a bail bond reduced then select an attorney you trust and listen to their advise.

Some things your Chad Conley Bail Bonds can offer that in some cases may help get the bail reduced.

For some drug use cases a GPS monitor and/ or admittance into an in patient rehab facility may also be helpful but usually on drug or alcohol cases which are generally not considered large bond cases and often the cost of the GPS will add up to more than the bail premium saved. But in some cases it is helpful. If you would like to talk about your bail bond amount to see if a reduction is possible or have any questions regarding bail bonds please call me.

How to remove a PC1275 hold on a bail bond in Orange County

Removing a PC1275 bail hold in Orange County, California

To remove the hold you must request a Bail Hearing. At this hearing the judge must rule the pc1275 hold removed. After the hold is removed you will be able to post a bail bond.

 

Let’s start with what a PC 1275.1 hold is.

There are other complicated things that can happen with a criminal case however generally when arrested you have a bail amount set for your charges, would choose a bail bondsman and post the bond.

 

When there is a PC1275 hold it means that you must have the hold removed in court prior to being able to post a bail bond. This can take several days to get prepared and get on calendar in front of the judge.

These holds are generally placed on an arrestee being charged with drug sales, stolen property sales, fraud, embezzlement etc basically any charge that has to do with receiving money from illegal means.

The process is different depending on if you have just been arrested or are currently in jail with a scheduled court hearing already.

 

Getting a PC1275.1 Bail Hearing on calendar in front of the judge.

If you were just arrested the very first this that must happen is an Arraignment Hearing. Nothing happens until you have had and arraignment. This is the very first hearing where you go in front of a judge. The hearing will go over if you have an attorney or one will be appointed to you, why you have been arrested, what you are being charged with and ask you how do you plea. At this hearing you may request a bail hearing however the district attorney gets three days advance notice prior to this hearing should they choose. It is best to have communication between your attorney and bondsman to give notice to the district attorney as soon as possible.

Preparing for a PC1275 hearing.

Depending on how many people the money is actually coming from, what documentation they can produce makes preparing for this hearing very different on each case.

The more documentation you can supply you bondsman the better. Generally the timeframe to prepare is dictated by how quickly getting the documentation together.

Selecting a bail bondsman with real experience is utmost importance.

Here are some examples of what might be needed from different situations.

 

 

Example: If the money was coming from a family member using a credit card.

Borrowing the money from a credit card or bank loan means you don’t have it yet because you are going to borrow it. This means they did not have this money prior to being arrested or charged. In this situation I would have them fill out a standard application and produce ID. I would also have them produce a credit card statement(s) showing this is a credit card and not tied to a banking account, the money is being borrowed. I would also have them put a monthly bills list together showing they have the ability to borrow and pay back the money. Although the hearing is to prove where the money is coming from and not necessarily how this person pays it back the court will be concerned if a person does not have the income or means to pay the monthly credit card payment.

This leads to a concern that this person would put the charge on their credit card and the defendant will get out of jail and give the money to them to pay off their card. This defeats the courts purpose of the PC1275 hold. The monthly income and expense showing a disposable income that can easily pay the credit card payment is what should be done. I would also put proof of this income by including either a few paycheck stubs or bank statements.

 

Example: If the money is coming from a friend or family members checking or savings account.

In this situation we would take standard application, ID. We would need to prove that the money is in the account and how the money got in the account. The concern of the court will be that the defendant had cash stashed and this cosigner may have deposited the money given to them to pay for the bail bond. The longer the money has been in there the better or if it has been steadily deposited over time from a job or provable income.

We would want to show a few months statements preferably with one or more going back as far as possible. It is far better to have more than not enough. If the money came from a paycheck we would want to show several paycheck stubs and again usually a few may work but it is always best to have some from further back proving how long you have had this income. Bottom line is clearly showing where the money came from and how your bondsman writes his declaration and lays out exhibits.

 

Example: If the money was coming from a 401k or stocks

This is similar to a bank account where the court will want to see how the money got into the 401k or stocks. This is for several reasons first the stocks could have just been purchased or purchased with the defendant. Second the 401k could have been something the spouse was saving however intermingling of funds would be called out most likely because it could be said that while the defendant and spouse may have only been able to save that money because the defendant was using illegally gained money to cover other expenses.

Now if the money was put into the 401k over a period of many years and the defendant was accused of a one time specific embezzling charge on a specific date it could be different but if the defendant was accused of selling drugs or there is a possibility of the crime being continuous then this would make a difference.

If it comes from a family member other than a spouse questions of whether the person putting the money up has any property, accounts, borrows or has received money from the defendant should be prepared for.

If the money is coming from multiple sources or people the same process must be done for each person and each source. You can have as many people as you wish to pay for the bond but all monies must be accounted for and proved.

 

Can you make payments on a bail bond with a PC1275 hold?

Example: Payment plan for a bail bond with a PC175.1

The answer is yes a payment plan is acceptable but in this situation we will have to prove as laid out above where the deposit is coming from along with more detail of how and where the person(s) paying the payments will be receiving the money from they will be using to make these payments. Having a detailed income and expense list along with proof of income that shows enough disposable income to cover the payments. Generally this route will be scrutinized by the district attorney more so the the paperwork should be laid out very clearly. In addition the bail bondsman will have to guarantee the court that the only monies they will accept is money coming from the approved source and possibly the approved sources specific bank account. This is because they do not want payment arrangements approved and then cash is handed from the defendant to the bondsman or the cosigner to cover the bond payment.

 

Will the person(s) putting the money up for the bond need to go to court?

Although the bail bondsman can write a declaration, attach exhibits, show proof and testify under oath that they have investigated the legitimacy of who and where the funds are coming from it is always best to have the person(s) at the bond hearing who are putting the funds up for the bail bond. Again you can go to court and be kinda prepared or go to court completely prepared. Having the person there generally make the DA feel more comfortable about the paperwork presented and they are there to testify to the accuracy of the proof of answer any questions that may pop up. If your bondsman does a great job preparing your case it most likely won’t be necessary for them to actually take the stand.

 

What is a good reason for the person putting the funds up for the bail bond to not be at the bond hearing?

Some reasonable examples of why they could not be in court maybe they live in another state, they are very old and do not travel or leave their home, they are taking a final exam for college or a license or they are currently in the hospital. Again it is not completely necessary for them to be present in court but if they have the ability to be there they definitely should.

 

Is there always a bond hearing or can the PC 1275 hold be removed without a hearing?

Yes and no. Yes the the hold must be removed in open court in front of the judge whom decides to lift the hold or not however if the bondsman does a clean and clear declaration with organized exhibits that the district attorney can read and decides it is acceptable the defendants attorney can bring up the bond hearing letting the judge know that a copy has been given to the DA and they are not going to challenge it. The judge will ask the district attorney if they are satisfied and generally the judge will remove the hold without anyone taking the stand testifying.

 

An experienced bail bondsman is very important and this is why.

Although every bondsman wants every bond there are few that actually have experience packaging and putting on PC1275 hearings. Most will tell you they have done them and its no problem or even that they are good at them. You don’t want to find out at the hearing that they inflated their experience to get the bond.

An experienced bondsman understands that his declaration should be laid out to have a clear easy to read summary front and center instead of in the back.

They should have a great reputation and experience talking with the prosecution.

The paperwork will be clearly spelled out with labeled exhibits for each item moving down the line properly labeling corresponding document.

The summary will be written in such a way that the DA knows by the first page that its all there.

The goal is that they look at the paperwork and realize there is no reason to was their time with a hearing because the paperwork is clean and all there.

Generally the attorney pulls the district attorney aside with the bondsman, gives them a copy of the paperwork for bond hearing and if your bondsman can sum it up quick and clearly it will help the DA not have to spend a lot of time figuring things out.

I am astounded by the number of bondsmen I see in court with a declaration asking for the PC1275 hold to be lifted fumbling through some copies from the clients and not having a solid clear understanding of their clients situation.

You don’t want a combative bondsman on the stand but a smart one who recognizes there will be anything from unanswerable question, questions about things that are not in line or necessary to prove where the funds are coming from and can clearly answer them.

Some bondsmen take the questioning way to personal maybe its because until they get the hold removed they don’t get to make money but when they should have taken it personal was preparing for the hearing.

My name is Chad Conley with Chad Conley Bail Bonds. I have extensive knowledge and experience in the removal of PC1275.1 bond holds. About 9 out of 10 of all my bond hearing the DA agreed ahead of time not hearing was necessary.

 

What happens after the judge lifts the PC1275 hold?

Orange County’s Superior Courts are all the same in how this is handled depending on if the defendant is in custody or out of custody at the time of this hearing.

If the defendant is in the custody of OC Sheriff they will have to go back to the jail for the sheriff to do what is called the release process. The sheriff computers must be updated with what transpired in the court and usually do about 8-9pm the night of the court date. After the sheriffs computer system is updated they will accept the bond and start the release process which is generally 6 to 8 hours from the time the bond is posted.

If the defendant is out of custody in court then the court will accept the bond. The defendant will be ordered by the court to remain in the court room while the bondsman goes to the bond window and posts the bail bond. The bailiff will take the defendants right thumb print. Once the bond is posted the clerk next to the judge will get an email from the bond clerk. The defendant will then be given permission to leave the court room.

 

 

If you have a bail bond with a PC 1275.1 hold please call to walk through your case and let Chad Conley help you get your hold removed and you family or friend out of jail fast.

How do you know the right bondsman for PC288 and does it matter?

Bail Bond for a California Penal Code 288 – Lewd Acts with a Child Charge

You will need to select the right bail bondsman if you or a loved one has been arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious acts with a minor. California takes punishment for sex offenses seriously, especially sex offenses committed against children. You face the possibility of a lengthy prison sentence and having to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life.

How do you know the right bondsman for PC288 and does it matter?

Yes, it matters a lot for so many reasons. First I am not going to tell you that price isn’t extremely important to most. Generally this charge has a large bond amount set and can be costly twice if you don’t select the right bondsman and here’s why. 

First off a bondsman has the right to surrender a defendant at anytime period. Now even though you have the right to a court hearing to ask for your premium back this will take a lot of time and in the meantime you will be in jail forced to pay the premium to another bond company to get out of jail. 

Secondly these cases take a lot of time and most bond companies have small print stating the bond is only good for one year and you must pay the premium all over again. Chad Conley Bail Bonds does not do this. 

Sometimes a person is arrested for a crime by the police or sheriff. This doesn’t mean the district attorney has filed the charges. If further or ongoing investigations prolong the district attorney from filing 15 days after the original arraignment date the court will automatically exonerate the bond. When the DA files the charges after this date the defendant will be required to post an entirely new bond. Will the bondsman make you pay again or reassume the original bond? 

Along the way the DA files additional charges and raises the bond. Will the bondsman give you credit for what you have paid toward the higher bond or make you pay for a new bond?

There are many other tax issues people run into posting a large bond should they decide to pull money from 401k or CD’s , etc. Is your bondsman considering these issues for you

Usually large bonds require collateral from family members who all may have a very different feeling about posting bail. Their maybe different parties/cosigners for payment and collateral. Privacy is extremely important and all parties must feel comfortable. You must have an experienced bondsman that can explain the options and the future items to consider, deal with different cosigners questions and concerns and pull it all together. 

What is PC 288 and what does the charge mean?

Penal Code 288 PC is a crime committed by touching a child somewhere on his/her body for sexual purposes. These cases typically involve accusations that the child was touched or fondled on a sexual organ, or that some overt act of child molestation took place. Someone can also be charged with lewd acts even if the touching was not on a sexual organ, and even if the touching was done over the child’s clothes. 

Should someone arrested or charged with PC 288 get bail? 

I could quote the constitution about how everyone has the right to fair bail and that everyone is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. Although this is true there are plenty of things going through the minds of family members who are considering a bond and thats not one of them. I can say that over my years of experience in the bail industry I have seen several cases that either the accuser is lying or mistaken, another adult actually committed the abuse, and the child is blaming the wrong person. Sometimes a third party used manipulation and suggestion to “coach” the child into making an allegation of sexual misconduct or the contact, to the extent it occurred, was accidental. These are not only common defenses but have been true as well. 

Why is a bail bond for Lewd Act with a Minor different from other bonds?

There are several reasons that posting a bond for the charge PC288 is different from other bonds and here are some of the reasons;

 This is one of the charges that a defendant can be accused and arrested by a sheriff or police officer and post bond to get out of jail. The investigation period is generally ongoing and often charges are filed by the district attorney’s office late and the court often exonerates the bond prior to the filing thus making the defendant post an entirely new bond once they file charges. You must make sure that your bondsman will reassume or rewrite the bond in the event of what is referred to as a “late file”

PC288 Lewd Acts with Child is one of the charges that is looked badly on inside of jail making the jail time very difficult for the defendant

The charges are also more likely to be increased or counts added to along the way should the interviews or investigation open the door for opportunity to charge you with additional counts or offenses. This means the bond can go up along the way. Should this happen its important to know what your bondsman will do and if you will get credit for the money you paid towards the first bond. For example the bond was set at $100,000 and you paid the bondsman. The bond gets raised to $250,000. This is considered a new bond and the bondsman can charge for an entirely new bond. I do not do this! You need to know that should this happen the bond company will honor and credit the amount paid. Many bondmen do not do this.

These type of cases can go longer than a year. Most all bail bonds have a start and stop date. They generally have small print on the contract that states that in one year the bond will expire meaning that should your case go over a year you would be forced to go into custody or post a new bond. Chad Conley Bail Bonds writes the bond for you one time for the length of the case. This allows you and your attorney to have the time needed to fight you case and you will not be backed int a corner trying to force signing a plea you’re not ok with or paying all over again. 

Why is a Bail Bond for Sex Crimes different from other bonds?

There are so many different reasons as to why this bail/bond is different. Starting with who arrested the defendant. If law enforcement made the arrest and set the bond amount. The District Attorney; 

May add additional “charges” could increase the bond amount.

Increase the “counts” on a particular charge requiring possible higher bail amount

Argue for no bail

Require GPS Monitoring with bail

What will the Bail Bond Company do when your bail has been raised?

What is the difference between a Bail Company, Bail Agent and a Bail Bondsman and why does it matter for a Lewd Acts with a Minor Bond?

Bail Bond Agent and Bail Bondsman is mostly the same just a different way of saying it however mostly recognized these two ways. Independent Bail bondsman or Agent that works at a Bail Bond Company.

Bail Bond Company’s generally refer to their salesmen as agents

A Bondsman generally does more than just sell and post the bond. They often are independent agents that have their own company and deal with advertising to exoneration (start to finish)

The reason it matters is because the amount of power the bondsman has or doesn’t have can change everything

It matters whether you are dealing with a sales agent that just sits at a desk and sells in a corporate environment or a hands on personal service owner. Even the background and personality or the bondsman matters. 

What should I compare when selecting a bail bondsman?

I know what you are thinking already “COST” right? Well, your right but most make the mistake or taking the cheapest dollar amount they hear or the lowest down payment. Its what you miss or what changes along the way that will very well determine the cost. Don’t be fooled by the lowest cost when you leave the door open to so much that could cost you more or worse more than you have!

What are the hidden costs to be aware of?

  • Changes or increase in charges
  • Late file by DA office
  • DA reject or no file
  • Annual renewal fees
  • Posting fees
  • Interest fees

If you have questions regarding a band please call me. I will explain the entire process and give you all your options so you can make an informed decision.

LA County Inmate Locate, Bail Bond Posting and Release Times

What is the first step in bailing someone out of jail in Los Angeles County?
When someone is arrested in LA County Chad Conley Bail Bonds can help. There are lots of questions that are associated with the bail bond process and most people don’t have the time to learn it in minutes as they stress to get their friend or family out of jail in a hurry.
Let’s start with what you will need to know when you call a bail bondsman. The first thing we will ask is your name and number. This is to be able to call you back should the call be lost, dropped or they need to locate who was arrested and call you back with information regarding their arrest, charges and bond.
The second thing is the arrestee’s name and DOB/ date of birth. This is what is used to locate them in the jail system or get booking information.
Third we will ask either the city or approximate location and time to know where to start. It is helpful if you know what agency actually arrested them.
Why is the arresting agency and time of arrest important? While County jails have computer websites that inmates can be found once they are booked the smaller jails do not. If you are arrested and taken to a city jail you will be booked and processed there. City jails to not house inmates so usually once you are booked if you do not quickly post a bail bond you will be transferred to the larger LA County jail. Once you arrive at the LA County Twin Tower Jail you will be booked and processed there all over again. When this happens you will be entered into the computer system where locating you becomes much easier.
Often times a bail bond can be posted at the local city jail and their release time will be hours sooner not to mention they would not have to go through the horrible booking process at the LA County Twin Towers Jail. The booking time for a smaller city jail is usually a couple of hours with a release time of 30 minutes to two hours while being transferred means transfer time plus a 6 to 10 hours booking time before an bail bond can be posted and then 6 to 10 hours release time after the bail bond has been posted/ accepted. We ask the approximate time they were arrested so we have an idea of whether they may still be at the local city jail or if they may have already been transferred. This helps us know where to start looking first to locate the inmate faster or to know if they may be in the middle of a transfer.
Another reason we ask what Police or Sheriff Department arrested them is because not all arrests are made in Los Angeles County are by LA Police Department or LA County Sheriff Department. The arrestee could have either had a warrant from another County and that County Sheriff came to make the arrest. They could also have been arrested by LA County for a warrant in another County. If they were arrested by a County Sheriff other than LA County they would not be taken to LA County Main Jail Facility and booked so while we know they were arrested in LA County they may be miles away being booked. This is obviously when it gets more complicated unless we know what agency actually made the arrest.
Once we have located the arrestee we should know there booking number, booking information, if they have a bail bond amount, have any bail holds and are considered bondable. How much the bond amount has been set for and in most Counties what their charges are. Now it’s time to get the bail bond process started! http://www.chadthebailguy.com

Is there a difference? There are a lot of bail bond companies that advertise LGBT, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender.

There are a lot of bail bond companies that advertise LGBT, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender. The question is why? Are they LGBT owned? Does it mean they care more or are they simply trying to reel you in based on search engines? If you asked most of them they simply wouldn’t have a good answer off the cuff. Some may have forgotten that their web designer even put that on their website.
The bail bond is the same whether you are lesbian or gay right? Your bond should cost the same right? Do you get a special discount or a LGBT bondsman that is sent out?
The answers is simple really. First off there are not special discounts for LGBT bail bonds and the prices should be the same for everyone. There are few LGBT bail bondsman and frankly you most likely aren’t going to ask them when you call if they are or just advertising it and really it shouldn’t matter.
As far as caring I believe that a person is either very caring or their not. They either love helping people or they don’t. They either love their job or they don’t. These are qualities that one possesses no matter what their gender, gender preference is or who they are dealing with.
So what is the real difference and what is important? Well not everyone involved in the arrest process may be caring or be there to help. When someone is arrested they are taken to jail and while city jails are smaller and have either few people in the holding cell or even a private cell the county jails are far more crowded. First people are thrown in a catch all cell that has every kind of person that is arrested. During the booking process you will be fingerprinted, photographed, interviewed and a national background check is performed. The interview process will ask you about yourself and if you are housed they will usually segregate people for safety based on ethnicity, background, medical and sexual preference. However until this happens you are left to fin for yourself in general population holding tanks with lots of very prejudice types of people of all crime statuses. Timing is important especially if you are arrested in a local city jail and there usually is an ability to post a bail bond there prior to being transferred to the county jail.
Your relationship with your bail bondsman goes far beyond the initial application process. It is a relationship until your case is completely over. It usually starts with a friend or family member meeting to file out applications and present ID. You want to know that who you are meeting is not only caring about who is in jail but also who is out getting paperwork prepared for your bond. You will possibly be meeting someone you don’t know in an unusual location like a parking structure at the jail. You may even be planning to pay cash to whom you meet. Once the bond is posted the defendant will have to deal with the bondsman as well once they are out to also fill out their paperwork and present ID and possibly make payments along the way. The bail bond company will be in charge of your bond and freedom until your case is over. So although it does not matter if your bondsman is LGBT it does matter that they care and respect you.
Bottom line is that it shouldn’t matter whether you bail bondsman is lesbian, gay straight, bisexual or transgender. It should only matter that they are extremely caring, very fast and extremely professional. That they offer low cost bail bond pricing, payment plans and take visa, MasterCard, AMEX and Discover as well as cash. They should treat you like a client because you are!

Bail Bond booking and release times for Orange County IRC Jail and LA County Jails and when a bond can be posted

In County jail a bail bond cannot be posted until after the defendant is fully booked and processed. This used to take anywhere from 4 to 6 hours to complete, however for several months now this process has been averaging closer to 6-8 hours. There are several things that change booking time the first is how busy the jail is at the time. While this makes up for a big part of the county jail booking process it is not the only thing that determines when a bail bond can be posted. Other things that hold the bail bond posting up are alcohol level if they were brought in on a DUI/ driving under the influence, jailor staff shift changes, problems in a department that require jailors to attend to such as fights or riots, not having your ID when you are arrested, if you have ever used an AKA or alias name, medical problems such as heart rate or whether you are currently on a medication or if you say something to them that makes them feel you would hurt yourself etc. During this time the defendant will be photographed, fingerprinted, interviewed and need to undergo a nationwide warrant check. The warrant check is generally the reason that booking takes so long because it often takes several hours for these results to be processed. Once the warrant check comes back the jailer will mark the defendant clear for bail. Once someone is clear a bondsman is then able to post your bail bond. The release process once a bail bond is posted is generally about the same amount of time as booking process for you to finally be released from jail.
Los Angeles County Jail usually takes roughly two hours longer than Orange County Jail for both booking and release process. However if you are arrested at a local city jail such as Laguna Beach Jail, Newport Beach Jail, Fullerton jail, Buena Park Jail or Anaheim Jail the booking and release process is substantially faster so long as you quickly post a bond prior to being transferred to the County Jail facility.
If you are arrested at a city jail that takes bail bonds then posting one prior to being transferred can save you hours. Generally you are booked at the smaller city jail and then if you do not post a bail bond they will transfer you to the county jail. Once at the county jail you will be booked all over again prior to being able to post a bail bond. Most city jails will book you within 30 minutes to 2 hours and you will be ready to post your bond. Their release times are generally about 15 minutes to 2 hours and you walk out of jail. This is why it is very important to call a Chad Conley Bail Bonds at 855-223-2423 http://www.chadthebailguy.com right away when you have been arrested so we can find out what jail you are in and start the bail bond process immediately. If you have any questions regarding bail bonds or someone you know has just been arrested please call me right away.

I will make sure you understand what all the costs are associated with posting a bail bond and that you get the best service at the same time.

How Prop 103 Changed Rebate Restrictions for Bail Premiums

It seems that some confusion still exists when it comes to understanding rebates on bail premiums.  I would like to demystify the rebate debate with the following outline:

In November 1988, voters passed Proposition 103, also known as the Insurance Rate Reduction and Reform Act, in an outcry to circumvent skyrocketing insurance premiums.  One result of Proposition 103—it repealed certain provisions of the Insurance Code that prohibited premium rebates.  However, Section 1851 of the Insurance Code excludes certain classes of insurance from premium rebates; yet “surety” is not one of excluded classes, and bail falls under the surety classification.

In 1995 the State Supreme Court ruled against an attempt to exclude surety from Proposition 103 made by Amwest Surety in the case Amwest Surety Ins. Co. v. Wilson.  This decision precluded Amwest Surety’s legislative attempts to exclude surety from Proposition laws 103 as well.

Further, Section 2054.4 of the California Code of Regulation, which prohibits rebates in connection with bail transactions, was deemed invalid by a court ruling on the case Pacific Bonding Corporation v. John Garamendi, Insurance Commissioner in February 2004.  The ruling was based on the fact that because Section 2054.4 was broader in scope than the provisions in Sections 1800 through 1823 of the Insurance Code (which regulate bail licensure) there was no statutory basis for the regulation; and further, Section 2054.4 tracked the language of certain former Insurance Code Sections that were repealed under Proposition 103, which also repealed statutory basis for the regulation.

Basically, the impact of the above actions on the bail business boils down to the fact that bail bonds are regulated under Proposition 103, which provides for premium rebates as long as they are not unfairly discriminatory. Visit Chad The Bail Guy for more bail bond information.
