First, ask the court to allow you to serve your sentence in a city jail facility at the sentencing hearing. Next, ask for a Court Commitment Order that:
- Identifies the plea charge
- Includes that your time may be served in a city jail facility.
- Specifies any increments of custody at the direction of the court (consecutive days or intervals between days).
- States the length of the sentence to be served and defines any "time served" credit that you may have.
- States your name
Lastly, contact the Alhambra City Jail Supervisor at 626-570-5145 and request a Pay to Stay application. Upon completion of the application, return it to the Alhambra Police Department with your $100 non-refundable application fee and a copy of your court commitment paperwork.
