If you have a PC 1275 hold. There is the process, in addition you must get the 1275 hold lifted by a judge before being able to post this bond. There is still the ability for the defendant to bond out of jail. The problem is the “hold” in the system does not allow the court clerk, jailor, sheriff or the police to take the bond until a Judge removes this hold. The hold can only be removed in a court hearing. There is a specific process to make this happen. There must be a court hearing with the judge and he must order the 1275 hold to be removed or lifted. For this to happen you must get a hearing on calendar with the court. You need to be prepared for this hearing. Preparing for this hearing is done very differently than other cases. We have to prove to the judge that the money and collateral being used for the bond is coming from a legal source. Gathering information and verifying its source can be difficult. Now you’re ready for the hearing on calendar. Remember, to have the 1275 hold lifted you must be in front of a judge to make a ruling to lift the hold. We must ask the court to put you on calendar and set a 1275 bail hearing.
