Bail may be set by a Riverside County judge through an arrest warrant or following an arrest. Once a defendant is processed at a Riverside jail, the court will schedule an arraignment within 48 hours, excluding weekends and holidays. During an arraignment, the court will explain the charges against a defendant, allow them to enter a plea, and read their rights. The judge will also determine the bail amount, or if the defendant can be released on their own recognizance.
Judges determine bail by referencing California’s bail schedule, the local Riverside County bail schedule, and other factors, such as a defendant’s:
- Criminal record
- Current charges and the nature of the arrest
- Community ties
- Flight risk
