Bail Bonds DIRECT is a fully licensed and bonded professional business. One of the most trusted names in the bail bond industry. Our staff of Bail Bond Agents are professionals who know the South Gate jails.
Whether a person has been arrested for domestic violence, DUI, DWI or any other offense the process is the same. Persons taken into custody by the South Gate Police or Sheriff's Department will be held at either the South Gate Police Station Jail, Sheriff's Station Jail or will be transfered to the Los Angeles County Jail (IRC) and will be kept there until their first court date called the "Arraignment." Bail is allowed to be posted in any facility 24hrs a day, 7 days a week.
Before a bail bond is turned in and accepted, the arrestee must pass a background check through "Live Scan", which is a machine that is linked to a county, state and national database. That database will notify the authorities of any possible holds, warrants, or aliases that might prevent release or increase the total bail amount of an arrestee. Once the results of the Live Scan come back from the various government agencies, that person is then "cleared" to bond out. At this time, a jailor will review and accept a Bail Bond for an arrestee and release them on the Bail Bond.
From the time a Bail Bond is turned in, it takes between 30 minutes and 3 hours for a release depending on the facility where the person is being held. Release times do vary based on the workload of the South Gate jail's staff as well as the type of facility. Once out, a person will need to complete his or her part of the paper work, take a picture, and make sure to show up to each and every court date thereafter. It is recommended that you hire a South Gate criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
In addition to being bail bonds agents we are proud members of the South Gate community.
South Gate is a city in Los Angeles County and is a member of the Gateway Cities. South Gate was officially incorporated on January 20, 1923 and as of January 2009, has an estimated population of 102,770 residents. In 1990, the city was given the All-American City Award which is given to ten U.S. by the National Civic League. The city was given its name in 1918 after the South Gate Gardens that are located on the nearby Cudahy Ranch. When the city was incorporated five years later, they used a shortened version of the name which also refers to the fact that the city is located south of Los Angeles. The climate of the city is generally nice, with temperatures in the summer being warm and in the 70s, and relatively cool in the winters with temperatures being in the 50s. The city consists of 23,213 households, and 58.2% of those homes have children under the age of 18 living there. The city began to develop during the 1920s and 1930s as an industrial city that focused mainly on 'metal-bashing' and the blue-color community was made up mostly of white, non-Hispanic residents. In the 1940s and 1950s the city was one of the most fiercely segregated in the southern part of the state. The city was known for having gangs of young whites who would prowl the streets for African Americans who had come over from nearby Watts. One of the most infamous gangs was known as the Spook Hunters. Since the 1970s, the population of South Gate has shifted and it has become a largely Hispanic community. The city has been in the middle of scandal in the past few years; From 2001 to 2003, the then treasurer of the city, Albert Robels, along with three others, were caught accepting bribes and then giving taxpayer dollars to family and friends to perform city contracts. The City Council also gave themselves a 2000% raise and cut the city clerk salary by 90% after Carmen Avalos, the clerk, complained about corruption to the State Secretary. The city does not have its own school district and instead is served by the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Paramount Unified School District.
