When someone has been bailed out of the Imperial County Jail, they need to know this does not mean they are free and clear. They will still be required to return to court in order to resolve their case.
Sometimes, the court will set forth various “terms of release” the defendant must abide by in order to remain out on bail. This may include restrictions on travel, being required to surrender their passport, or mandating the defendant submit to regular drug and alcohol testing. The Imperial bail bonds company that assisted with their release may also have requirements of their own. If the defendant does not adhere to these restrictions they can, at any time, have their bond revoked and be sent back to jail.
If their bondsman receives credible information that the defendant is going to flee, this can also lead to the revocation of a bond.
You should know, however, that if an Imperial County bail bonds company wants to revoke a bond they are required to have “just cause” for doing so. If the person who signed the bail contract has opted for a payment plan and they fall behind on payments, this would not qualify as “just cause”.
If someone you know has been arrested and detained at the Imperial County Jail be sure to ask your bondsman any questions you might have about how bail works prior to signing any paperwork.
