Having a warrant out for your arrest is not a pleasant feeling. A heavy burden is placed on your shoulders, and the constant worry of being publicly arrested at a routine traffic stop, a Hollywood action packed sequence while you are at your job, or the boys in blue bearing down on you while you are trying to enjoy a family meal are all stressful thoughts you carry moment to moment. For minor offenses like not appearing in traffic court, unpaid traffic tickets, or things of that nature, a warrant walk through might be more ideal for you.
 

Ajua Bail Bonds would like to offer FAQ regarding warrant walk through bonds for your understanding.

If your question is not seen here today, always feel free to give us a call and we can explain whatever questions you have.
Q: What is a Warrant Walk Through?
A: It is a court arrangement through a preapproved bail bondsman that allows you to be booked and processed by turning yourself in through a warrant. In this way, even though you were documented as being arrested, you do not spend any time in jail.
Q: Why is necessary to be “officially” arrested?
A: When there is an offense, like a felony or a Class A or B misdemeanor, it is lawful to perform an arrest to satisfy the arrest warrant, which is a necessary event to resolve a case. When there is an outstanding arrest warrant, it is more time efficient for the courts and everyone involved to utilize the warrant walk through. When you get through the process of a warrant walk through, you are turning yourself in without the jail time, which helps you tremendously in your case, and in small menial cases, it is often dismissed.
Q: Is it possible for an arrest warrant to be dismissed or recalled?
A: There is a misconception concerning warrants that were issued on false accusations or incomplete evidence, that a judge will automatically dismiss the warrant. Those tactics are great to use in defenses on trial, but they are not relevant to the arrest warrant.
Q: What is the general protocol of a Warrant Walk Through?
A: In California, it depends on which County the warrant is issued. In Kings County, a representative from Ajua Bail Bonds will accompany you to the jail to begin the procedure. An officer will confirm warrants issued in their database. Once the warrant is located, you are officially in custody while the process continues. During the walk through, the officer will ask you basic questions regarding your personal information, along with finger printing and booking photos. After the “booking” steps, the officer will confirm warrants, accept the bail bond and lift the warrant out of the system. You are then given a copy of your bond. Avoid losing your copy as it contains your court date. Depending on the jail, you may then have to go to a processing section of the jail to complete the release paper work. Typically, those with the warrant walk through are given priority for your release. Avoid bringing personal property; just have a government issue ID such as passport or drivers license ready. During the process an officer may have to hold your personal effects. Once the procedure is completed you will get everything back. In Fresno, Madera and Tulare Counties, the process is even easier for taking care of your active warrant. These counties allow you, the person with a warrant, to meet with Ajua Bail Bonds at our office and fill out paperwork to make arrangements for us to take care of the jail and court; without you even having to be at the jail in person!

What is bail bond collateral? Bail bond collateral is defined as tangible property that has value including cars, jewelry, artwork and residential homes that can be used to secure a bail bond. Collateral takes the place of cash. When you need to bail a loved one or friend out of jail, you may not have the cash readily available to post the bond yourself. A bail bondsman may be willing to accept property in place of cash with a fee, generally 10% for agreeing to do the bond. While the fee is non-refundable, the collateral is returned to you providing the defendant appears at court until the case has been adjudicated.
 

What Can Be Used as Collateral for Bail Bonds

It depends on the bondsman and which items he/she is willing to accept. The most common items accepted include cars, trucks, buses, motor homes, trailers, mobile homes, jewelry, electronics, tools, land, houses, gold, silver, and antiques. One of the most important things that you need to understand is that the bondsmen will value your assets conservatively using a wholesale based valuation system. The item used as collateral is expected to cover the loss of the bond and recover the loss quickly should the defendant fail to appear in court. It is to be expected that the bondsman will not place as much value on the property as you do.
 

Putting House Up as Collateral for Bail

The most widely accepted form of bail bond collateral is in the form of property. If the item you are offering is large property such as a house or car, the court or bail agent will have you place the deed in their trust. Smaller items including jewelry will be kept in the physical possession of the bail agent until the case has been resolved. Should the court be collecting on a bail bond that is property based because the defendant failure to appear in court, it usually involves the seizure and sale of the home or other property. Property bail can take many weeks to collect upon. Equity must be determined to equal at least 150% of what is owed to the court.
Your collateral will be returned to you once the case has been completed, whether the person is found innocent or if the person is sentenced. However the full amount of the collateral may not be returned if a premium has been set in place as part of the bail bond agencies contractual agreement. Bail collateral can be returned in as little as five days after the financial obligations have been completed. Until these obligations are met, the bail bond again will continue to hold the bail as collateral.

A Police Office Can Handcuff You When You’re Arrested

If you are arrested by law enforcement, one of the first actions you will experience is being put into a pair of handcuffs. You will be handcuffed and driven in a patrol car down to the police precinct. At the precinct a police officer will interview you and ask for all of your information, including your date of birth, social security number, your full name your address and any other information they need. After your interview you will be fingerprinted and taken to central booking for arraignment, which is when you will be ordered to appear before the judge.
 

If You Know You’ll Be Arrested, Prepare for It

Many people know that they will be arrested before hand, especially those who are going to be involved in civil disobedience during a demonstration, arrested at their home or are turning themselves in. If you know you are going to be arrested, leave as many personal belongings at home as you can. Do however bring with you two forms of identification that have your picture on them. This will make the processing procedure go much smoother. Another helpful tip is to bring a handful of quarters for any phone calls you may need to make, one of those being to Ajua Bail Bonds to get you out of there as soon as possible.
 

Avoid Getting Arrested if You Have Pending Charges

When you are arrested, one of the steps law enforcement takes is to search to see if you are wanted for an arrest or have any warrants or summons out for unpaid traffic tickets for example. If there is a warrant or anything that is outstanding, you may be forced to spend additional time in jail before your arraignment so those documents can be sent to the precinct. If the warrant is from a county other than the one you were arrested in, you can guarantee that your jail time will be extensive until all proper paper work is attained.
