State vs. Federal Bail

Federal Bail Information for Hacienda Heights Residents

Facing a federal charge can be even more stressful than a regular criminal charge. Federal bail is not regulated the same way as state bail, and bail bond processes are more complicated and expensive. If you are facing a federal charge, you need good advice from a professional and reputable bail bonds agent. Hacienda Heights Bail Bonds can provide that.

Crimes that can be construed as federal offenses include:

  • Kidnapping
  • Importation of Illegal Drugs
  • Organized Crime
  • Customs Violations
  • Bank Robbery
  • Mail Fraud
  • Tax Evasion
  • Counterfeiting

What to Expect with a Federal Bail Bond

  • The bail fee will be greater- If you commit a federal crime, the bail fee will be more. Federal bail bonds are at 15% the bail- A magistrate decides if there will be bail allowed and what it will be. There is no bail schedule.
  • There can be terms to being bailed out- If bail is allowed it might only be on certain conditions such as a psychiatric evaluation, random drug testing, or travel restrictions.
  • There must be an additional hearing in a federal case- This is called a nebbia hearing and is meant to make sure that the property or money used for bail comes from a legal source.
