When someone is arrested and booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail their bail will be set based on the severity of the crime they have been accused of. Someone who is accused of a very minor offense, like public intoxication, will have a much lower bail amount than someone who has been arrested and charged with armed robbery.
The cost to hire a bondsman in San Jose may only be 10% of the total bail amount, but this could still mean needing to come up with a very large amount of money on a moment’s notice. This is where bail bonds payment plans (and/or jail bonds payment plans) come in. In this case, the bondsman will allow you to make a down payment on the bail bonds fees as long as you agree to continue to make monthly payments until the balance is paid off.
