Penal Code 1203.2
When a person is arrested for violating penal code 1203.2, the person has been arrested for a probation violation. This particular offense is most often combined with addition violations that lead to the arrest in the first place. Thus, the bail amount for violating penal code 1203.2 will be added to the bail amount for the other arrest when determining the total bail amount.
Often, when a person is arrested for a probation violation, they may not receive bail again. If the person has violated the trust of the court once, the court will determine that the person has a greater chance of violating the law again, so it might keep the defendant in jail until the trial date.
However, if the defendant is given the opportunity to get out of jail on bail, then the defendant is, essentially, able to provide the court with a financial security that that the defendant will return to court to stand trial for the offense that he or she has been accused of committing.
In order to provide this financial security to the court, many defendants enlist the help of a bail bonding agency. A bail bonding agency will provide the full amount of the bail to the courts in exchange for a non-refundable down payment from the defendant. This down payment is generally about ten percent of the total amount of the bail. However, many bail bonding agencies will work with the defendant on the price of the down payment.
To pay the bail bonding agency, defendants may use a person check, credit, or other securities, such as collateral. The bail bonding agency will also hold on to additional collateral until the defendant fulfills his or her full legal obligation to the court. If the defendant fails to fulfill the full legal obligation, then the defendant may forfeit the collateral that he has put up to the bail bonding agency as a security. The bail bonding agency may also enlist the services of a bounty hunter to track the defendant down to rearrest him and to return him to jail.
