Release Time

After a bail bond is posted at a local jail, how long will it be until the bailee is released from custody?

Good question! In northern Nevada, it can be from 30-minutes to four hours, depending on jail staffing, shift changes, medical emergencies, etc. In the case of the release of a defendant in an out-of-state facility (e.g., Los Angeles, Sacramento, Miami, etc.) release can take considerably longer after bail is deposited.

Your Action or Annie’s bail agent will do his or her best in finding out when your friend or family member will be released, wherever the bond is posted.
