Arrest & Arraignment in Santa Clarita, California
An arraignment is the first time when the arrested person appears in court to face the charges against him. When a person is arrested and sent to Santa Clarita Police Department or Santa Clarita Sheriff’s jail, he is arraigned within 24 to 48 hours. If the arrested doesn’t have a lawyer, he / she will be assigned one by the court. At the arraignment hearing, the ADA (Assistant District Attorney) presents the case against the defendant, the arrested person will then be asked to enter a plea: guilty, not guilty or no contest.

What’s the difference between guilty, not guilty and no contest?
• Guilty: the arrested person is responsible for all charges. If he pleads guilty to all the charges, there will be no trial. Court judge will decide the punishment soon after. 
• Not Guilty: the arrested person denies all charges. A trial will set for the case.
• No Contest: the arrested person doesn’t wish to fight the charges brought against him, but accept the charges brought against him as if he pleads guilty. 

Bail & Bond in Santa Clarita, California
On arraignment, court judge will also set bail for the defendant and date for another court appearance. If the arrested person poses as public threat or high level of flight risk, court judge may deny bail or elevate it accordingly. Bail amount can be high or low. Factors that affect the bail amount can be (but not limited too) the person’s previous criminal records, severity of the case, etc. 

What’s a bail bond?
A bail bond is an agreement between the arrested person and a bail bond company.  If the arrested person cannot afford to pay the whole bail amount, they can ask a bail bond company for help. Instead of paying the whole bail amount, the accused only need to pay 10% of the total bail amount and the bail bond company will put up whole bail in the form of a surety bond. 

Can a person use his house or car as collateral to bail?
The answer is yes. The person can use his house, car, or any form of property that has high market value as collateral. The person can also use those properties toward bail bond. Collateral properties will be rightfully returned when the case is closed (as per the contract), even if the person is found guilty of all charges. However if the accused person decides to skip court or fails to show up in court, the state or the bail bond company will seize and collect those properties.

Beware of Bail Bonds Scam in Santa Clarita, California
When people are in desperate situations, such as a loved one getting arrested, there are deceptive bail agents who take advantage of such circumstances. One way to detect bail bond fraud is to be aware of extremely low bail bond rate, such as “1% down payment”. When a loved one is in jail, the individual is more likely to sign the contract without reading it thoroughly. In the end, the person has to pay so much more service fees than signing contract with a reputable bail bond company.
