Choosing the Best Orange County Bail Bonds Agent

Everyone wants great service when choosing a bail agent, but what is service when it comes to getting bailed out of jail?

If you have a client who has been arrested for the first time, they are probably not thinking about how the kind of service they receive from a bail agent will impact their case; they just want someone who can get them out from behind bars. Let this recent situation illustrate exactly how bail bond agents should provide service:

I attended a bail hearing on behalf of a client. The case included a co-defendant, and bail had been set at $25,000 for both defendants. The defendant’s attorney called me to discuss bail and said that she would fight for OR or a bail reduction, and my response was, “Of course, I wouldn’t expect anything less.” I attended the bail hearing prepared to post bail immediately upon the judge’s ruling, if necessary. The attorney’s request for a bail reduction was granted, and bail was reduced to $10,000. Not only was I in court ready to post bail, I charged my client an 8% bond premium, and he qualified for the Prop 103 rebate, reducing his overall premium to $600.00.

Unfortunately for the co-defendant, his bail agent did not appear in court, rather posted bail instantly upon hearing the initial bail amount of $25,000, and because the bond had been posted prior to the bail hearing, the judge would not reduce his bail amount. The co-defendant was charged a 10% premium based on the $25,000 bail amount. This could have been avoided if Bail Agent “X” (who was an experienced agent with one of the top 10 bail agencies) had taken the time to show-up in court. Consequently, his client was stuck with paying a premium of $2,500.00—lucky for Bail Agent X; not so lucky for his client.

My client was not only thankful for the reduced bail amount, but was grateful that I didn’t act in haste just to make a buck. I was prepared and I cared enough to show-up in court, posted bail based on a reduced amount and made sure he got the best premium possible.

As we all know, bail amounts can decrease (or increase) on a judge’s ruling. At Chad Conley Bail Bonds our job is to attend bail hearings to make sure that bail is posted after the judge has given a final ruling, not before you’ve had a chance to fight for a reduction.

PC 2900.5 Credits for time served outside of jail

California Penal Code Section 2900.5

(a) In all felony and misdemeanor convictions, either by plea or by verdict, when the defendant has been in custody, including, but not limited to, any time spent in a jail, camp, work furlough facility, halfway house, rehabilitation facility, hospital, prison, juvenile detention facility, or similar residential institution, all days of custody of the defendant, including days served as a condition of probation in compliance with a court order, credited to the period of confinement pursuant to Section 4019, and days served in home detention pursuant to Section 1203.018, shall be credited upon his or her term of imprisonment, or credited to any fine on a proportional basis, including, but not limited to, base fines and restitution fines, which may be imposed, at the rate of not less than thirty dollars ($30) per day, or more, in the discretion of the court imposing the sentence. If the total number of days in custody exceeds the number of days of the term of imprisonment to be imposed, the entire term of imprisonment shall be deemed to have been served. In any case where the court has imposed both a prison or jail term of imprisonment and a fine, any days to be credited to the defendant shall first be applied to the term of imprisonment imposed, and thereafter the remaining days, if any, shall be applied to the fine on a proportional basis, including, but not limited to, base fines and restitution fines.    (b) For the purposes of this section, credit shall be given only where the custody to be credited is attributable to proceedings related to the same conduct for which the defendant has been convicted. Credit shall be given only once for a single period of custody attributable to multiple offenses for which a consecutive sentence is imposed.    (c) For the purposes of this section, “term of imprisonment” includes any period of imprisonment imposed as a condition of probation or otherwise ordered by a court in imposing or suspending the imposition of any sentence, and also includes any term of imprisonment, including any period of imprisonment prior to release on parole and any period of imprisonment and parole, prior to discharge, whether established or fixed by statute, by any court, or by any duly authorized administrative agency.    (d) It shall be the duty of the court imposing the sentence to determine the date or dates of any admission to, and release from, custody prior to sentencing and the total number of days to be credited pursuant to this section. The total number of days to be credited shall be contained in the abstract of judgment provided for in Section 1213.    (e) It shall be the duty of any agency to which a person is committed to apply the credit provided for in this section for the period between the date of sentencing and the date the person is delivered to the agency.    (f) If a defendant serves time in a camp, work furlough facility, halfway house, rehabilitation facility, hospital, juvenile detention facility, similar residential facility, or home detention program pursuant to Section 1203.016, 1203.017, or 1203.018, in lieu of imprisonment in a county jail, and the statute under which the defendant is sentenced requires a mandatory minimum period of time in jail, the time spent in these facilities or programs shall qualify as mandatory time in jail.    (g) Notwithstanding any other provision of this code as it pertains to the sentencing of convicted offenders, nothing in this section is to be construed as authorizing the sentencing of convicted offenders to any of the facilities or programs mentioned herein.

AB 420: California Electronic Monitoring

BILL NUMBER: AB 420 INTRODUCED BILL TEXT
INTRODUCED BY   Assembly Member Davis
FEBRUARY 14, 2011
An act to amend, repeal, and add Sections 1208.2, 2900.5, and 4532 of, and to add and repeal Sections 1203.018, 1203.019, and 1269d of, the Penal Code, relating to electronic monitoring.
LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL’S DIGEST
AB 420, as introduced, Davis. Inmates: electronic monitoring.    Existing law provides that the board of supervisors of any county may authorize the correctional administrator to offer a program under which minimum security inmates and low-risk offenders committed to a county jail or other county correctional facility or granted probation, or inmates participating in a work furlough program, may voluntarily participate in a home detention program. Existing law also provides that the board of supervisors of any county may, upon determination by the correctional administrator that conditions in a jail facility warrant the necessity of releasing sentenced misdemeanor inmates prior to them serving the full amount of a given sentence due to lack of jail space, offer a program under which specified inmates may be required to participate in an involuntary home detention program.    This bill would provide that, until January 1, 2016, upon determination of the correctional administrator that conditions in a jail facility warrant the necessity of releasing inmates being held in lieu of bail, the board of supervisors of any county may authorize the correctional administrator to offer a program under which these inmates may be placed in an electronic monitoring program, as specified. The bill would provide separate authority for voluntary and involuntary electronic monitoring programs. The bill would establish criteria for inmates to be eligible for programs established pursuant to its provisions and would specify circumstances under which inmates may be placed in these programs. The bill would also provide that defendants arrested for a bailable offense who are without any other warrant and who meet certain criteria may apply, after 10 court days from the date of arraignment, for release on reduced bail if the defendant agrees to be placed in the voluntary electronic monitoring program and the court and correctional administrator determine that the defendant is eligible to participate in the electronic monitoring program. The bill would make it a misdemeanor for any inmate who is a participant in an electronic monitoring program to fail to comply with the prescribed rules and regulations. By creating a new crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. The bill would specify, for persons pending disposition of charges, that electronic monitoring programs authorized pursuant to this bill include, but are not limited to, home detention programs, work furlough programs, and work release programs. The bill would make other conforming changes.    Existing law provides for an administrative fee for specified work furlough and voluntary electronic home detention program participants.    This bill would include participants in the voluntary electronic monitoring program for persons pending disposition of charges, and the existing voluntary home detention program, within the coverage of those administrative fee provisions, as specified.    The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.    This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.    Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes. State-mandated local program: yes.
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
SECTION 1.  Section 1203.018 is added to the Penal Code, to read:    1203.018.  (a) Notwithstanding any other law, this section shall only apply to inmates being held in lieu of bail and on no other basis. This section shall only apply if the correctional administrator of a county, as defined in paragraph (1) of subdivision (j), makes a determination that conditions in a jail facility warrant the necessity of releasing inmates being held in lieu of bail due to a lack of jail space and a court-ordered jail population cap.
(b) Notwithstanding any other law, the board of supervisors of any county may authorize the correctional administrator, as defined in paragraph (1) of subdivision (j), to offer a program under which inmates being held in lieu of bail in a county jail or other county correctional facility may voluntarily participate in an electronic monitoring program if the conditions specified in subdivision (a) are met.    (c) (1) In order to qualify for participation in an electronic monitoring program pursuant to this section, the inmate must be a minimum security inmate with no holds or outstanding warrants and one of the following circumstances must exist:    (A) A magistrate has approved the electronic monitoring release pursuant to Section 1269d.    (B) The inmate has been held in custody for at least 30 calendar days from the date of arraignment pending disposition of only misdemeanor charges.    (C) The inmate has been held in custody pending disposition of charges for at least 60 calendar days from the date of arraignment.    (2) All participants shall be subject to discretionary review by the correctional administrator consistent with this section.    (d) The county board of supervisors, after consulting with the sheriff and district attorney, may prescribe reasonable rules and regulations under which an electronic monitoring program pursuant to this section may operate. As a condition of participation in the electronic monitoring program, the participant shall give his or her consent in writing to participate and shall agree in writing to comply with the rules and regulations of the program, including, but not limited to, all of the following:    (1) The participant shall remain within the interior premises of his or her residence during the hours designated by the correctional administrator.    (2) The participant shall admit any person or agent designated by the correctional administrator into his or her residence at any time for purposes of verifying the participant’s compliance with the conditions of his or her detention.    (3) If released pursuant to subparagraph (A) of paragraph (1) of subdivision (c), the participant shall post bond prior to being placed on electronic monitoring.    (4) The electronic monitoring may include global positioning system devices or other supervising devices for the purpose of helping to verify the participant’s compliance with the rules and regulations of the electronic detention program. The devices shall not be used to eavesdrop or record any conversation, except a conversation between the participant and the person supervising the participant to be used solely for the purposes of voice identification.    (5) (A) The correctional administrator in charge of the county correctional facility from which the participant was released may, without further order of the court, immediately retake the person into custody if the electronic monitoring or supervising devices are unable for any reason to properly perform their function at the designated place of home detention, if the person fails to remain within the place of home detention as stipulated in the agreement, if the person willfully fails to pay fees to the provider of electronic home detention services, as stipulated in the agreement, subsequent to the written notification of the participant that the payment has not been received and that return to custody may result, or if the person for any other reason no longer meets the established criteria under this section.    (B) A copy of the signed consent to participate and a copy of the agreement to comply with the rules and regulations shall be provided to the participant and a copy shall be retained by the correctional administrator.    (e) The rules and regulations and administrative policy of the program shall be reviewed on an annual basis by the county board of supervisors and the correctional administrator. The rules and regulations shall be given to every participant.    (f) Whenever the peace officer supervising a participant has reasonable cause to believe that the participant is not complying with the rules or conditions of the program, or that the electronic monitoring devices are unable to function properly in the designated place of confinement, the peace officer may, under general or specific authorization of the correctional administrator, and without a warrant of arrest, retake the person into custody.    (g) (1) Nothing in this section shall be construed to require the correctional administrator to allow a person to participate in this program if it appears from the record that the person has not satisfactorily complied with reasonable rules and regulations while in custody. A person shall be eligible for participation in an electronic monitoring program only if the correctional administrator concludes that the person meets the criteria for release established under this section and that the person’s participation is consistent with any reasonable rules and regulations prescribed by the board of supervisors or the administrative policy of the correctional administrator.    (2) The correctional administrator, or his or her designee, shall have discretionary authority consistent with this section to permit program participation as an alternative to physical custody. All persons approved by the court to participate in the electronic monitoring program pursuant to subdivision (c) who are denied participation and all persons removed from program participation shall be notified in writing of the specific reasons for the denial or removal. The notice of denial or removal shall include the participant’s appeal rights, as established by program administrative policy.    (h) The correctional administrator may permit electronic monitoring program participants to seek and retain employment in the community, attend psychological counseling sessions or educational or vocational training classes, or seek medical and dental assistance. Willful failure of the program participant to return to the place of home detention later than the expiration of any period of time during which he or she is authorized to be away from the place of home detention pursuant to this section and unauthorized departures from the place of home detention are punishable as provided in subdivision (c) of Section 4532.    (i) The board of supervisors may prescribe a program administrative fee to be paid by each electronic monitoring participant.    (j) For purposes of this section, the following terms have the following meanings:    (1) “Correctional administrator” means the sheriff, probation officer, or director of the county department of corrections.    (2) “Electronic monitoring program” includes, but is not limited to, home detention programs, work furlough programs, and work release programs.    (3) “Minimum security inmate” means an inmate who, by established local classification criteria, would be eligible for placement in a Type IV local detention facility, as described in Title 15 of the California Code of Regulations.    (k) Notwithstanding any other law, upon request of a local law enforcement agency with jurisdiction over the location where a participant in an electronic monitoring program is placed, the correctional administrator shall provide the following information regarding participants in the electronic monitoring program:    (1) The participant’s name, address, and date of birth.    (2) The offense or offenses alleged to have been committed by the participant.    (3) The period of time the participant will be placed on home detention.    (4) Whether the participant successfully completed the prescribed period of home detention or was returned to a county correctional facility, and if the person was returned to a county correctional facility, the reason for the return.    (5) The gender and ethnicity of the participant.    (6) If released pursuant to Section 1269d, the name, address, and contact information of any bail agent or surety.    (l) Any information received by a law enforcement agency pursuant to subdivision (k) shall be used only for the purpose of monitoring the impact of home electronic monitoring programs on the community.    (m) It is the intent of the Legislature that electronic monitoring programs established under this section maintain the highest public confidence, credibility, and public safety. In the furtherance of these standards, the following shall apply:    (1) The correctional administrator, with the approval of the board of supervisors, may administer an electronic monitoring program as provided in this section pursuant to written contracts with appropriate public or private agencies or entities to provide specified program services. No public or private agency or entity may operate a home detention program pursuant to this section in any county without a written contract with that county’s correctional administrator. No public or private agency or entity entering into a contract may itself employ any person who is in the electronic monitoring program.    (2) Program participants shall undergo the normal booking process for arrestees entering the jail. All electronic monitoring program participants shall be supervised.    (3) (A) All privately operated electronic monitoring programs shall be under the jurisdiction of, and subject to the terms and conditions of the contract entered into with, the correctional administrator.    (B) Each contract specified in subparagraph (A) shall include, but not be limited to, all of the following:    (i) A provision whereby the private agency or entity agrees to operate in compliance with any available standards and all state and county laws applicable to the operation of electronic monitoring programs and the supervision of offenders in an electronic monitoring program.    (ii) A provision that clearly defines areas of respective responsibility and liability of the county and the private agency or entity.    (iii) A provision that requires the private agency or entity to demonstrate evidence of financial responsibility, submitted to and approved by the board of supervisors, in amounts and under conditions sufficient to fully indemnify the county for reasonably foreseeable public liability, including legal defense costs, that may arise from, or be proximately caused by, acts or omissions of the contractor.    (iv) A provision that requires the private agency or entity to provide evidence of financial responsibility, such as certificates of insurance or copies of insurance policies, prior to commencing any operations pursuant to the contract or at any time requested by the board of supervisors or correctional administrator.    (v) A provision that requires an annual review by the correctional administrator to ensure compliance with requirements set by the board of supervisors and for adjustment of the financial responsibility requirements if warranted by caseload changes or other factors.    (vi) A provision that permits the correctional administrator to immediately terminate the contract with a private agency or entity at any time that the contractor fails to demonstrate evidence of financial responsibility.    (C) All privately operated electronic monitoring programs shall comply with all applicable ordinances and regulations specified in subdivision (a) of Section 1208.    (D) The board of supervisors, the correctional administrator, and the designee of the correctional administrator shall comply with Section 1090 of the Government Code in the consideration, making, and execution of contracts pursuant to this section.    (E) The failure of the private agency or entity to comply with state or county laws or with the standards established by the contract with the correctional administrator shall constitute cause to terminate the contract.    (F) Upon the discovery that a private agency or entity with which there is a contract is not in compliance with this paragraph, the correctional administrator shall give 60 days’ notice to the director of the private agency or entity that the contract may be canceled if the specified deficiencies are not corrected.    (G) Shorter notice may be given or the contract may be canceled without notice whenever a serious threat to public safety is present because the private agency or entity has failed to comply with this section.    (H) For purposes of this section, “evidence of financial responsibility” may include, but is not limited to, certified copies of any of the following:    (i) A current liability insurance policy.    (ii) A current errors and omissions insurance policy.    (iii) A surety bond.    (n) This section shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2016, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2016, deletes or extends that date.   SEC. 2.  Section 1203.019 is added to the Penal Code, to read:    1203.019.  (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, this section shall only apply to inmates being held in lieu of bail and on no other basis. This section shall only apply if the correctional administrator of a county, as defined in paragraph (1) of subdivision (j), makes a determination that conditions in a jail facility warrant the necessity of releasing inmates being held in lieu of bail due to a lack of jail space or due to a current or impending court-ordered jail population cap.    (b) Notwithstanding any other law, the board of supervisors of any county may authorize the correctional administrator, as defined in paragraph (1) of subdivision (j), to establish a program under which inmates being held in lieu of bail in a county jail or other county correctional facility may be required to participate in an electronic monitoring program if the conditions specified in subdivision (a) are met.    (c) (1) In order to qualify for participation in an electronic monitoring program pursuant to this section, the inmate must be a minimum security inmate with no holds or outstanding warrants and one of the following circumstances must exist:    (A) The inmate has been in held custody for at least 30 calendar days from the date of arraignment pending disposition of only misdemeanor charges.    (B) The inmate has been held in custody pending disposition of charges for at least 60 calendar days from the date of arraignment.    (2) All participants shall be subject to discretionary review by the correctional administrator consistent with this section.    (d) The county board of supervisors may prescribe reasonable rules and regulations under which an electronic monitoring program may operate.

The rules and regulations shall be given to every participant.    (f) Whenever the peace officer supervising a participant has reasonable cause to believe that the participant is not complying with the rules or conditions of the program, or that the electronic monitoring devices are unable to function properly in the designated place of confinement, the peace officer may, under general or specific authorization of the correctional administrator, and without a warrant of arrest, retake the person into custody.    (g) (1) Nothing in this section shall be construed to require the correctional administrator to place a person in this program if it appears from the record that the person has not satisfactorily complied with reasonable rules and regulations while in custody.

The   MEMS-3000 utilizes a high resolution camera with 242 pixels x 200 lines that provides the monitoring center with a high resolution color image of the client. The Probationer’s image is digitally transferred to the monitoring center by pushing a single button. The camera is mounted behind a two-way mirror for the purpose of positioning the client’s image properly prior to sending. When the image is transmitted to the Twenty-four-Hour Monitoring Center, the image is visually and digitally compared to the Probationer’s image file ensuring compliance with his/her home confinement program. Violations are confirmed by the Monitoring Center, and are immediately reported to the Supervising Officer for disposition.
