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 Montebello 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 Montebello Police or Sheriff's Department will be held at either the Montebello 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 Montebello 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 Montebello criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
In addition to being bail bonds agents we are proud members of the Montebello community.
The history of Montebello, a city in Los Angeles County, began long ago with the Tongva people, and wouldn't be explored by the Spanish until the 1540s. The Spanish moved into the land and began the mission system, taking over the Native American inhabitants. In the early years of the missions, the region operated under the Rancho system. The area that is now Montebello was originally part of the Rancho San Antonio, Rancho Paso de Bartolo and the Rancho La Merced. The city's oldest structure, the Juan Matias Sanchez Adobe, built in 1844 remains in the center of old Rancho la Merced in Eastern Montebello. The city was site to an important battle during the Mexican-American War; the Battle of Rio San Gabriel took place on January 8, 1847 and gave the United States the opportunity to win California from Mexico. Every September, the battle in re-enacted and the site is California State Historical Landmark #385 with two old cannons on display and there is a plaque commemorating the battle overlooking the river. The city was given its name, Montebello, as a suggestion by William Mulholland. Montebello meaning 'beautiful hill' in both Spanish and Italian was adopted by the towns people to replace the existing name of Newark. Oil was discovered in the city in 1917 on the property of Anita Baldwin by the Standard Oil Company and brought about an extreme change from an agricultural city to a major oil contributing city. The city was officially incorporated in 1920 as the 35h city in Los Angeles County. Montebello is also home to the oldest Armenian Community in L.A. County, the only Armenian Cathedral in the entire state of California, and the largest monument on public property in the world, the Armenian Martyrs Monument, commemorating the victims of the Armenian Genocide by Ottoman Turks. The city is home to an estimated 62,150 residents as of 2000, with 14,867 families living there. Beside Bicknell Park, where the Genocide Memorial is housed, Montebello has one other city park, the Grant Rea Park where the Montebello Barnyard Zoo is housed. The city also has it's own Unified School District and is served by two High Schools, Montebello High School and Schurr High School. Montebello High School produced Nobel Prize Winner, Dr. Bruce Merrifield, who was part of the 1939 graduating class.
