I was arrested, booked and bailed out. A few days later, I received a "Cerificate of Release/Clearance Letter" 849.5pc.

Although you did not indicate what charge you were arrested on, and how quickly you bailed out, I am a little surprised that you were not simply booked and released to begin with. But, a simple detention, rather than an arrest on your record, is something to be very grateful for, even if you did end up paying the bail premium.
Although I am an experienced CA criminal defense and appeals attorney, I can not 'guarantee' that my answer is entirely accurate, since I have not reviewed all of the factual circumstances of the case, nor have I discussed those circumstances fully with the questioner. The fact that I have answered this question does not establish an attorney client relationship between the questioner and my self or my office.
