Corona is a vibrant city that manages to mix urban and rural seamlessly together. On the one hand, you can enjoy a day at Tom’s Farmhouse, where you can go horseback riding, enjoy the small zoo, and eat at excellent restaurants, but on the other you can relax at one of the many state-of-the-art spas or appreciate the hustle and bustle of Downtown.
The city has a police force that employs about 220 people, which is a mix of civilians and police officers. Given that there are 168,000 people currently living in Corona, and more who commute in for work or visit as tourists, that isn’t many officers. On top of that, the crime rates in Corona have been steadily increasing, going up by 17% from the last year that statistics are available. A small force and high crime rates can make police officers jumpy, and more likely to arrest first and ask questions later.
An officer only needs probable cause to justify an arrest, and that cause can take many forms. You may have simply been in the wrong place at the wrong time, or maybe the officer decided you looked suspicious. Either way, you could have your entire life disrupted despite not actually doing anything wrong. An arrest can leave your reputation in shambles, force you to take time off from work, and, if you end up unable to make bail, hurt your chances of winning your case as you have to prepare while being stuck in jail.

After being arrested you will probably be processed and held at the police station, which is located at 730 Public Safety Way, Corona, CA 92880. After a few hours there, you may be transported to a long-term facility. In Corona, there is the California Institute for Women, which is at 16756 Chino-Corona Road, Corona, CA 92880. Just outside of the city, in Chino, is the California Institute for Men at 14701-14799 Cypress Ave, Chino, CA 91710. Both are corrections facilities, and you will likely be brought to one of them after your initial processing.
Within 24 to 48 hours of the arrest, you will be given a video interview with a judge. The judge will review your case, consider each of the details, before finally setting your bail. There are many factors that play into how much your bail is. The judge will look at:
- How severe your alleged crime is
- Whether you have prior criminal history
- How strong the evidence against you is
- How high your perceived flight risk is
Flight risk refers to how likely you are to leave the city, state, or country after being released on bail. If the courts think you have a high flight risk, they can demand a high bail in an attempt to keep you in prison while you wait for your trial. Factors that a judge considered when determining flight risk include:
- Whether you live in the area
- Whether you have a job in the area
- Whether you have family in the area
- Whether you have a criminal history or a history of running from convictions
Your trial and all other court proceedings are likely to take place in the Corona Courthouse, which is located at 505 S. Buena Vista Rm. 201, Corona, CA 92882. It is incredibly important that you attend all court appointments. If you don’t, it’s very possible your bail will become counterfeit. If you accidentally missed a court proceeding, or if you know you can’t make it and are unable to reschedule, call your bail agent immediately. They may be able to negotiate with the courts and make sure your bail does not become forfeit, however, that is not always possible, and we cannot promise a favorable outcome.
After hearing your initial bail amount, you may become worried that you simply can’t afford to pay it. But that is exactly why you should contact a bail bond agency. We have flexible payment and financing plans that allow you to pay us back overtime and when you can afford to. On top of that, we offer a low 10% fee for our services. This means that even if you can’t afford the entirety of the bail amount, you may still be able to prepare for your trial in the comfort of your own home so long as you contact Balboa Bail Bonds.
Being arrested can completely destabilize your life, whether you committed the crime or not. No one deserves to be sitting at in prison, awaiting trial, when they could be preparing for their case surrounded by family and loved ones. If you or someone you know have been arrested and you need to pay bail in Riverside County, call Balboa Bail Bonds at (619) 760-2222. We want to help.
