Criminal Bond Sacramento
When someone is charged with a criminal act, whether it is a felony or a misdemeanor, they are usually allowed to secure pre-trial release by posting a bond. The presumption of "Innocent Until Proven Guilty" applies and they have a right to be released to assist in their defense.

Many offences like Infractions and Misdemeanors don't usually involve bail, but criminal charges that amount to felonies almost always do. A felony is commonly defined as criminal offence for which the penalties exceed 12 months of detention and/or $1,000 in fines.
In Sacramento County, like every other county in the state, the Superior Court sets the bail amounts for each specific offence.

The County jail at 651 I Street, Sacramento, CA, began operating in 1989. That facility, known as The Lorenzo Pati´┐Żo Hall of Justice serves as both the location of departments of the Sacramento Superior Court and also houses the Sacramento County Main Jail. It has 1,252 total cells that are rated to hold a maximum of 2,432 inmates, 90% of whom have been charged with felonies. On a typical day, there are only 20 to 30 empty beds.

There is also another facility called the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center (RCCC) located at 12500 Bruceville Road in Elk Grove. Unlike the main jail in downtown Sacramento, the RCCC is primarily dedicated to housing inmates who have been sentenced by the courts, although an increasing percentage of the inmate population are pre-sentence detainees housed there to keep the population at the Main Jail below the limits set by Federal decree. You can learn more about the RCCC here.

We have extensive professional contacts at all levels of the court system and know the specific details of the process. Whether the bail amount is large or small, regardless of any complications (including a 1275 hold) that may arise, we attend to all the details in the shortest amount of time that the system will permit.

Sometimes, if the bail amount is set too high, it may be necessary to request a "Bail hearing" and ask the court to lower the required amount. This will take time to schedule, but from the defendant's perspective, bail they can't afford is the same as no bail at all. We offer discounts for clients who are union members, Active Duty military, AARP members, or who have already retained an attorney. All bail agencies are regulated by the state of California, but we do everything legally possible to assist our clients in exercising their right to bail.
