The Kern County Superior Court follows the Judicial Council of California’s Uniform Bail and Penalty Schedules for most traffic, boating, fish and game, forestry, public utilities, parks and recreation, and business licensing cases. See California Rules of Court, rule 4.102. However, there are a few exceptions for Vehicle Code misdemeanors for which the Court’s own Felony Bail Schedule (which also covers certain misdemeanors) will be applied. The Uniform Bail and Penalty Schedules can be found on the Judicial Council’s website.
Felony Bail Schedule Effective August 15, 2022
Refunds on cash bail are processed automatically upon court order. It takes approximately 4-6 weeks from the date of the court order to receive your refund.
