Booking and Release process — Knowing how it works can help you avoid mistakes
Booking and Bail in California
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 Pasadena Police or Sheriff’s Department will be held at either the South Pasadena Police Station Jail, Sheriff’s Station Jail or will be transferred 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 24 hours 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 jailer 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. Jail Release times do vary based on the workload of the South Pasadena 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 Pasadena criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
More About South Pasadena, CA
The city of South Pasadena was incorporated as a city in March 1888 when the residents of the area attempted to gain more control over their property. It was chartered with an area of 3.44 square miles and had a population of just over 500 residents. The city is home to a large variety of native trees including ash, walnut, redwood, sequoia and sycamore trees, but there are also sweetgum trees that are non-native. Due to the few Spanish Colonial homes and the lack of palm trees, the city is popular among movie studios to be used as Midwestern and Northeastern towns in films and television shows. The area is well known for trying to preserve their small-town neighborhoods and atmosphere, even though the city sits less than ten miles from Downtown Los Angeles. Many of the residents in the city work either in Bunker Hill of at the University of Southern California. Many of the stores located in the city are ‘Mom and Pop’ merchants and the Mission West area of the city is part of the original historic Route 66. The city is also home to the historic Fair Oaks Pharmacy and Soda Fountain and the Rialto Theatre in the downtown area. The theater was built in 1925 and was used until August 19, 2007 when it was shut down due to low profit. The theater was out on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978 and is the last single screen cinema in the country. The city also hosts the annual 5K/10K run around the city known as the Tiger Run. The run is held on the first Saturday in December; the 5K is just a flat-path run with no elevation change, and the 10K has elevation changes in the second half. South Pasadena is also famous for appearing in a number of movies. Movies that have been filmed here range from comedy to drama to horror and go back to the 1930’s. Movies such as ‘Gone With the Wind’ and ‘The Ugly Truth’ have been filmed here; the house used in the original Halloween movies still stands on Mission Street.
