There are few things as gut-wrenching as finding out that a loved one was arrested. No one is truly prepared to hear that someone they care about has been taken into custody, and few know what to do next. Where has your loved one been taken? What have they been arrested for? When will they get to return home? These questions can plague you, and it may seem impossible in the moment to find the answers.
We at Balboa Bail Bonds are happy to help. With our expertise with the bail bond system in Riverside County, we know how to track inmates down, and how to get them out of jail and back home to their families within 24 hours. If your loved one has been arrested, give our agency a quick call at (619) 760-2222. We can help you get the answers you need.
With a bustling population of over 2 and a half million residents, Riverside County needs several correctional facilities to house all of its inmates. The sheer number of jails and prisons in Riverside can seem overwhelming. Where do you start? Well, first of all, your loved one will most likely be held at a jail, not a prison.
Jails are meant for convicted criminals who have been found guilty of misdemeanor crimes and thus have relatively short sentences. Usually, a misdemeanor conviction will result in a jail sentence of less than one year. These facilities are lower security and often less severe than prisons. Given that your loved one has not been convicted yet, they will usually be placed in a jail first.
However, that does not mean being held at a prison is out of the question. While it is not usual, if all local jails are overcrowded, or your loved one has allegedly committed a violent crime and needs more supervision, then they may be brought to prison while they await their trial. Prisons have more security. They are meant for criminals convicted of felonies, such as drug crimes, who will be serving a lengthy sentence of more than one year.
Within Riverside County, your loved one will most likely be held at one of the following:
- Blythe Jail
- Cois M. Byrd Detention Center
- John J. Benoit Detention Center
- Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility
- Robert Presley Detention Center
Your loved one could easily become lost in the shuffle, making it incredibly difficult to find them. However, with the right help, you will be able to locate your loved one quickly and easily.
Calling up every single facility in Riverside County to try to find your loved one will be a long and difficult process. Detention facilities aren’t exactly known for being hospitable or caring. However, you can simplify the situation by calling Balboa Bail Bonds instead. We have the tools to find your loved one in a matter of minutes, no matter where they are located in California. One short phone call to our agency could save you hours, or even days, of calls and worry. On top of that, after we find your loved one, we can have their bail paid within 24 hours. This means that your loved one could be home a mere day after their arrest.
Maybe finding your loved one is your only priority. Maybe you assume that whatever bail has been set will be far too much for your family to afford. Maybe you just want to know where they are located so you can visit, or at least have peace of mind. This is understandable. Bail is routinely set in the thousands, or even tens of thousands of dollars, and few families can afford to hand over that much money.
However, we at Balboa Bail Bonds operate our agency with a deep level of compassion. Other agencies only care about their clients when it comes time to pay their fees -- we are the opposite. When you work with us, you won’t have to worry about paying a mobile service fee, a posting fee, or a processing fee. With our low 10% premium, you will only have to pay a fraction of the bail amount. For example, if your loved one’s bail was set at $10,000, you would only owe us $1,000, so long as the bail does not become forfeit.
Of course, finding a spare $1,000 is going to be difficult for most families. We completely understand. That is why our payment plans are designed to be flexible. We want to work with you, not against you. When it comes time to pay your premium, we can find a plan that works with your needs. You won’t find an agency that cares more for its clients than Balboa Bail Bonds.
No one wants to see a loved one on the wrong side of the law. It can be an overwhelming and traumatic experience to see a member of your family being shoved in the back of a police car. But that is why we at Balboa Bail Bonds are so dedicated to our clients. We know the arrest and trial process isn’t easy, and we want to offer you and your family the support you need. To speak with one of our incredible agents and begin the bail process, call us at (619) 760-2222 today.
