OC Who’s In Jail Inmate Information
OC Who’s In Jail Inmate Information: Knowing a loved one has been arrested can be frightening. When you contact our Irvine Criminal Defense lawyers, we immediately get to work figuring out where a client is housed and can assist your family in helping you hire the right criminal attorney. We use our knowledge of the Orange County criminal court system to your family member’s advantage and can help you navigate the system. Contact us right away if you or your loved one is arrested on a misdemeanor or felony and taken to jail.
One of the tools we use to help clients is the Orange County Sheriff’s Department inmate search (who’s in jail), below. The Orange County Sheriffs Department search has no warranties or representations that the information contained is accurate.
When a defendant fails to appear in court, the judge issues a warrant for that person’s arrest. At the time the warrant is issued, the judge will usually set bail. That bail is the amount of money needed to bail out of custody if arrested on that warrant. Our criminal attorneys in OC have been successful in recalling warrants in many courts and getting our clients released on their own recognizance, without paying bail. This is especially true when the warrant is on the infraction (a traffic ticket ) or a misdemeanor (drunk driving, petty theft, driving on a suspended license, etc.), and we can save the client countless dollars in bail bond fees.
If the warrant is a felony, we can often arrange with the district attorney and the judge a bail reduction when the client is surrendered to the court on that warrant. Our lawyers will contact the court and district attorney and work out a surrender and an “own recognizance” release or a significant bail reduction. We can and will contact a bail company and have that bail bond company’s representative present in hopes that our client never spends a minute in jail.
Warrants can also result in a failure to appear on a traffic matter if there is a failure to appear on a traffic violation, the DMV will take action and suspend the privilege to drive until the warrant is recalled and they receive as “abstract” establishing that the warrant was recalled and fines have been paid. Our firm can resolve these matters without the need for our client to appear in court.
