When someone is arrested their bail amount will be set by cross checking the crime they have been charged with against the county bail schedule. This is a document that is set each year by a panel of Superior Court Judges and it lists different bail amounts to correspond with different crimes. Most people are surprised to learn that not all offenses will require San Jose bail bonds. At the same time, the types of offenses that don’t require San Jose bail bonds are those considered to be very minor in nature.
Someone who is arrested for public intoxication, for example, would likely receive a “cite out” instead of being required to post a bond. In this instance the defendant may be booked into the system but they would then be given a citation, informed of their court date, and be released from custody. Persons arrested for a basic, first-time DUI may also be cited out. If the defendant cooperated with the arresting officers, did not have any minors in the car, did not get in an accident or did not attempt to flee and does not have a previous DUI arrest- this would be considered a basic first-time DUI.
