Presumptive Bail Schedule for San Bernardino County Sex Crimes. Sex Crimes Defense Attorneys

The following is a list of common sex crimes criminal charges and their corresponding ‘presumptive’ bail requirements in San Bernardino County, CA for the year 2023.


The ‘presumptive’ bail amount is the amount of bail required to be staked with the court, on behalf of the defendant, before the defendant is released from custody (jail) during criminal pretrial proceedings. These ‘presumptive’ bail amounts are listed in ‘San Bernardino County’s 2023 Bail Schedule.’


A criminal court judge, or an arresting officer, may ‘deviate’ from the ‘presumptive’ bail schedule for good cause. This deviation may be to increase or decrease the amount of bail required in any case.


Note: When an arresting officer deviates from the presumptive bail schedule, then that officer must obtain judicial approval of the deviation from bail schedule within eight (8) hours of setting bail (PC 1269c). Otherwise, the bail schedule amount will apply at the defendant’s arraignment (usually first court appearance).


The below-listed ‘presumptive’ bail amounts assumes a single criminal charge (count) in a single criminal complaint (charging document), and against a single alleged victim. When multiple sex crimes are charged in a criminal complaint, or where multiple alleged victims are named in the complaint, then the bail amounts may usually be “stacked,” or added together.


Note: Multiple criminal charges of certain sex offenses may lead to a ‘presumptive minimum bail,’ or “no bail,’ depending on the number of criminal charges in a single criminal complaint, and regardless of whether that bail amount would otherwise be less if the bail amounts were “stacked.”


Example: A single charge of Lewd or Lascivious Acts with Child Under 14Yrs of Age (PC 288(a)) has a presumptive bail amount of $80,000 in San Bernardino County (2023). However, five (5) charges of PC 288(a) in a single complaint, against a single defendant, will result in a million-dollar ($1,000,000) presumptive minimum bail, not four hundred thousand ($400,000).
