If you are arrested while out on bond, your existing bail bond will not get you released. Every offense requires a separate bond. The bail bond for the first offense remains in place and will not be affected by a second arrest. Being arrested once is a stressful problem, and a second arrest, while out on bail, brings the stress to a whole new level. That’s when our bail bondsman at Balboa Bail Bonds can get to work to get you released, fast and at extraordinarily low rates. Call us at (619) 760-2222 any time, 24/7, including holidays, to get the process moving.

How to Get a Second Bail Bond

If you have been arrested while out on bail, you need to contact your defense lawyer immediately, followed by a call to Balboa Bail Bonds to get to work on your release. Once you are booked into custody, you will have access to a phone. The earlier we get involved in your case, the better. Our goal is to get you released as quickly as possible, and we have streamlined the bail bond process.

Your Bail Hearing

The first step is a bail hearing at which the bail for the new offense will be set. Once you have contacted our bail bond agent, we will monitor the progress of your case (at no charge to you) to ensure your bail bond is in place as quickly as possible.

Managing Court Dates

You could run into a problem with appearing at a court date if you arrested while out on bond, so ensure you inform your lawyer if you cannot make a court date while awaiting bail for the new charge. Telling your lawyer is critical, as you must avoid having a bench warrant issued with your name on it and the risk of a third arrest – and forfeiting your original bail bond for failing to appear. At Balboa Bail Bonds, we can guide you, or arrange for you to be released to attend court if you cannot make bail for the second offense.

A Second Arrest While Out on Bail

If the judge sets bail for the second offense in a bail hearing, you will need a separate bond to allow you to be released. Our team of bail bondsmen at Balboa Bail Bonds can track the results of the bail hearing (at no charge). Once bail is set, we will get your bail bond in place as quickly as possible. Call us as soon as you can after the arrest, so we are ready when bail is set.
