California Bail Information and Charges

Health and Safety Code 11359

When a person is arrested for violating Health and Safety Code 11359, the person has been arrested for possessing marijuana for the purpose of selling it. This is a felony offense in all counties across California. The bail amount is set at different levels depending on the amount of marijuana that the person had to sell. For example, the transportation of marijuana has an assumptive bail of $5,000. Possession more than 25 pounds of marijuana has a bail of $25,000; more than 100 pounds has a bail of $50,000 and more than 1000 pounds has a bail of $250,000.

When it comes to understanding bail, defendants should know that bail is the amount of money that is required in order to get out of jail while awaiting trial. This assumptive bail rates are the same throughout California. However, depending on the particular circumstances of each arrest, the bail rate could increase if additional criminal violations were committed.

If a defendant wishes to pay bail but does not have the money, the defendant will usually contact a bail bonding agency. A bail bonding agency will provide the necessary funds in order to get a defendant out of jail. If a person has a $50,000, then the bail bonding agency will provide the full $50,000. In return the bail bonding agency assumes responsibility to ensuring that the defendant fulfills his or her legal obligation by attending trial dates and checking in probation officers.

When the defendant returns to court for his or her trial, the bail bonding agency will receive a refund of the bail amount, even if the defendant is found to be guilty. However, the defendant will not receive a refund of the amount that he or she paid for the down payment to the bail bonding agency. Most bail bonding agencies charge about ten percent of the total cost of the bail. However, this figure can change according to the amount of the bail.
