Extortion Charges — California Penal Code 518
To be charged with extortion (also known as ‘blackmail’) means the defendant has gained money, property or other items of value through the use of force, violence, threat, harm to one’s reputation, etc. Extortion (518 P.C.) is termed differently from robbery, because it does not pose immediate physical threat or danger to its victim. Extortion is a “white collar crime” and is typically charged as a felony, which is punishable by up to 4 years in a California prison. Fines for extortion can be charged of up to $10,000.

Indemnitor Responsibilities & Costs
As the indemnitor, (bail bond signer) we will help you understand all of the details of your responsibilities before you decide to bail someone out of jail on extortion charges. The bail agency (in this case, Patel Bail Bonds) will jointly promise the court that the defendant will not miss any of their necessary court appearances. Once you decide to move forward, you will be required to sign minimal, state-required paperwork and make payment for the bond, which is a non-refundable 10% fee. For example, if the bail is $25,000, your portion would cost $2,500. There are never any additional taxes or added fees. You will always know the exact cost of the bond prior to anything being written.
Bail bonds typically require payment prior to the arrestees release from jail, but if necessary, we may be able to arrange payment plans.
