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 Agoura Hills 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 Agoura Hills Police or Sheriff's Department will be held at either the Agoura Hills 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 Agoura Hills 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 Agoura Hills criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
In addition to being bail bonds agents we are proud members of the Agoura Hills community.
Agoura Hills is located in Los Angeles County and rests about 30 miles away from downtown Los Angeles. The historic El Camino Real, a road connecting Loreto, Mexico to Sonoma, California, helping to connect Spanish missions in California, run through the heart of what is now Agoura Hills. During the 1920's the city was often called Picture City because paramount Pictures owned a ranch in the area they would use to film Westerns, one of the most popular genres at the time. The city itself was named in 1927 when town's people needed to choose a one word name for their post office, taking the last name of Pierre Agoure, a French immigrant who had settled here in 1871. Agoure was a sheep herder and had a reputation as a swashbuckler. The townspeople opted to take his name for the post office because it was the shortest proposed, but ended up using a misspelled version. It would no not be until 1982 however, that the town would officially receive cityhood. That year Agoura would become the 83rd city in Los Angeles County by a 68% majority. Agoura is known also for its live music scene, giving rise to such bands as Hoobatank, Incubus, Linkin Park and Fort Minor. The Canyon Club, a well known and highly regarded concert hall in Agoura, is host to many acts such as Peter Frampton and REO Speedwagon. As for geographical sites, the city is host to many mountains including Negrohead Mountain, named for John Ballard and Ladyface Mountain, which in 1900 was a popular stage stop for travelers due to the natural springs located at the foothills of the mountain. Not only is the city host to beautiful geographic sites, but also some notable people as well. Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park and Erin Brochavich are known to call the city their home.
