While its population may be miniscule, thousands of people pass through the town of Gorman, California every day on their way up or down the 5 freeway, to work in Bakersfield to the north, or Santa Clarita and Los Angeles to the south, so arrests do happen here.
Many people come to Gorman for the open spaces available for off-roading, as well as camping and just taking in the scenery. Situated where 3 mountain ranges meet (Tehachapis, San Emigdios, and Sierra Pelonas) Gorman offers breathtaking views of Southern California’s beautiful landscapes.
Since Gorman is such a small community, arrests made in the vicinity typically include DUI’s or other driving offenses. However, it is certainly possible that other types of infractions can occur which result in someone being arrested.

Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Station and Jail Information
The LASD is in charge of Gorman’s law enforcement needs. Those arrested in the vicinity of Gorman, CA will be taken to the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station for booking and processing, (the procedure in which photos and fingerprints are taken, and a background check is run) and, once complete, bail will be set provided that the arrestee is eligible.
Arrestees are held at the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station jail until they are arraigned before a judge. This usually takes a day or two, though it can be longer depending on the day and time of arrest. For instance, someone arrested on a Thursday or Friday will more than likely have to wait 3-4 days for their arraignment because the courts do not operate on weekends.
Depending on the nature and severity of their crime, once an inmate has been arraigned it is possible that they will either be released or transferred to a larger facility to await further court appointments.
Males who are transferred from the Santa Clarita Sheriff Station will be sent to Twin Towers Correctional Facility, or if they are a woman, the Lynwood jail, where they will need to be re-processed (a procedure that can take 24 hours or more). Therefore, it is beneficial to get the bail process begun as quickly as possible in order to avoid extending your friend or loved one’s stay in custody.
Why Bail Someone Out?
Being in custody can wreak havoc on someone’s life. Most people have obligations that they need to attend to, whether it be school, work or family, and cannot afford to spend several days (if not longer) behind bars.
Bailing someone out will allow them to continue with their daily life as they wait for their court appointments. It will allow school and work to be attended, as well as families to be taken care of.
In the event of a prolonged incarceration period following a defendant’s day in court, bailing them out beforehand will allow them to take the proper steps to get their affairs in order and avoid nasty repercussions to their credit, home or work life.
