What happens when someone is arrested in Westminster?

When someone is arrested in Westminster they are taken to the Westminster jail and booked in as an inmate.

As part of the booking process their information is taken down and their fingerprints and picture are taken. Their information is run against a number of law enforcement databases to see if they have any outstanding warrants. If they do these will be added to the bail amount.

Once the records check has completed the person in jail will be eligible for release by an Orange County bail bonds company. This could take just a few minutes or it could take a lot longer depending on how busy the jail is.

If you want to know how long the wait will be you should ask your bail bondsman, and they will call the jail and find out for you.

What does a bail bondsman do?

Not a lot of people understand how bail bonds really work. It’s really a simple concept.

When someone is arrested they are assigned a court date. In order to make sure that they are free to prepare a legal defense, they are allowed to be out on bail. The court needs some kind of guarantee that they will show up at court, which is why they require a bail bond.

This can either be paid in full in cash directly to the court, or you can use the services of a bail bondsman. If you pay directly to the court your money will be with them for the duration of the court case, which could take several years.

It’s most common to use the services of a bail bondsman because you don’t need to put up all of the money yourself. The bail bondsman will put up the money for you in exchange for a fee. This fee is a one-time, non-refundable fee.

The bail bondsman assumes full financial risk for the person he bails out and becomes responsible for that person making all of their court appearances. If they don’t show up in court the bail bondsman has to pay. So the bail bondsman makes sure they show up.
