Although there are certain circumstances in which an Imperial County Jail inmate will not need to post bail bonds in order to be released from custody, most arrestees find they’ll need to hire an El Centro bondsman in order to be released from jail pending court.
Due to the passage of Prop. 47, defendants who are arrested on certain low-level theft, forgery and simple drug possession charges will likely not need to hire a bondsman. On the other hand, if the jail determines the person in custody has an outstanding warrant you’ll want to contact an Imperial County bondsman as quickly as possible.
There are also other circumstances when a defendant may not need to post Imperial County bail bonds. If the person in custody has been arrested for a low-level misdemeanor offense such as being drunk in public, the jail may decide to release them on their own recognizance.
