Bail Bonds Defeated Purpose – California Penal Code 1305(A)(5)

bail bondsA Bail Bonds Conflict

Under California Penal Code Section 1305(A)(5), the purposes of  bail bonds are defeated by the untimely filing of a criminal complaint by the District Attorney’s Office. This California penal code section requires that the court exonerate the bail bond 15 business days from the date of arraignment if no criminal (complaint) case has been filed.

This can create an unexpected problem for the defendant in the near future. After all, the defendant was released by the local bail bondsman for the alleged charges at time of arrest. The defendant expects to appear in court for the underlying criminal charges out of custody, the intended purpose for posting the bail bond. Unfortunately, a bail bond business can’t reinstate the bail bond once the court has exonerated the surety bond. So, if the District Attorney’s Office fails to file within 15 days of the arraignment date, but files the criminal complaint any time after, the defendant is looking at a possible arrest warrant and having to post a new bail bond!
