criminal bail schedule

Pursuant to the provisions of Section 1269b(d) of California Penal Code, the Criminal Bail Schedule was amended and adopted by a majority of the Judges at a meeting held on February 25, 2020. The Bail Schedule is effective as of January 1, 2020.

2020 Local Criminal Bail Schedule 

2019 Local Criminal Bail Schedule 

2018 Local Criminal Bail Schedule 

Note: The Bail Schedule is the presumptive bail for many, but not all statutory offenses. A Judicial officer may review bail in any individual case and exercise discretion in setting appropriate bail different from the schedule.

In doing this the judicial officer will consider:

  • protection of the public,
  • the seriousness of the offense charged,
  • the previous criminal record of the defendant, and
  • the probability the defendant will appear at trial or at the next hearing.
