When you have been arrested for a crime in Orange County California, you need to contact an Orange County
criminal defense attorney IMMEDIATELY (949)275-6377.
After being arrested in Orange County you may be detained at the central jail in Santa
(Orange County Jail Search) or you may remain at one of the local
jails such as the Newport Beach, Irvine or Huntington Beach police departments until
you are released. If you are not released, you will need to post bail or wait for your court
date at one of the Orange County court houses.
How does bail work? I can assist you with the posting of bail. You will need to post the
entire bond or you will need to pay a nonrefundable 8-10% of the entire amount to an
Orange County bondsman who will then issue the entire amount to the Orange County
jail. (Bail Bondsman Definition)
Regardless, if you are released from jail on bail or on your own recognizance (without
posting bail), or you remain in jail, you will have a date to appear in an Orange County
court house. The first date is called the Arraignment (10 Tips for Orange County Court). This court
appearance starts the process in your fight for justice.
