My little brother was arrested last night in Brawley. His bail has been set at $55,000. The problem is that I don’t have $5,500 available to bail him out, and there isn’t anyone else in the picture who can help out. We lost our house when the market crashed and my credit is shot because of it. I basically need the cheapest bail bond I can find. He’s been in custody for a couple of days and when he called this morning he sounded really sick. I need to get him out of there fast but don’t know what to do. What can I do?
The rates that a Brawley bail bondsman charges their clients is not set company by company. They are instead set by the California Department of Insurance (DOI) and the rate is 10%. Every company in the state is required to charge the same amount. It doesn’t matter what county, city or municipality a person was arrested in. Some companies will advertise “discount bail bonds” or try to lure clients in with signs offering 2% or 4% rates. People think they are getting a deal but when they sit down to sign paperwork they find out “discount rate” refers to the amount they would need to put down in order to be eligible for a payment plan and the full cost will still be 10%. Since it sounds like you don’t have the full $5,500 on hand and have shaky credit, you may want to ask the bondsman you are working with what you would need to bring to the table in order to be eligible for a payment plan.
