How quickly can I get my loved one home?

Martinez Bail Bond Store

What happens when someone is arrested on a bailable offense is that they can appear before a judge within 3 days of their arrest. However, if they post the entire bail in cash at the jail, or have someone on their behalf do so, they do not have to see the judge. The defendant then must promise to fulfill all court and case-related matters and duties until the case is closed.

At Martinez Bail Bond Store, we understand bail can be expensive and coming up with that kind of money, especially in cash, can be a struggle. Call us at 925-228-5858 so one of our agents can help you out. Please do not feel ashamed or embarrassed – our friendly and licensed agents act with complete professionalism and ensure your confidentiality...

What is the purpose of bail?

Martinez Bail Bond Store

As the US Constitution grants, every person is innocent until proven guilty. Incarcerating a person for days, weeks, months, even a year or two, until his or her hearing is unlawful, which is why bail exists to protect and uphold this right of living free (though perhaps with some restrictions) until that hearing date.

Bail is a set amount of money the defendant must pay for their freedom. The amount of bail they must meet is determined by the severity of the crime and other factors. While bail can be very expensive, the 8th Amendment protects guarantees non-excessive bail.

Martinez Bail Bond Store is here to assist you in posting bail. We urge you to exercise your rights and we will work with you in finding the best solution to meeting bail requirements...

Are your rights being violated?

Martinez Bail Bond Store

Most people are so intimated by the police that they disregard challenging them. And sometimes, because the police know they are the force and know people are intimidated, they may overstep their power and violate civilian rights, something many civilians may be unaware of. If you ever end up in a situation where you feel your rights are being violated, with certainty or even probable question, do the following:

  • Immediately write everything your remember, including the officer’s name, badge #, patrol car numbers, agency, and any other details. Remember, you have the right to request the officer’s name and badge number.

Demonstrate proper court etiquette. Otherwise, you might be subject to a more critical punishment and consequence.

Martinez Bail Bond Store

Standing before a judge, a jury, your lawyer, prosecutors, and other witnesses and government officials is perhaps one of the most frightening situations to be in – these are the people who will decide your fate and future. The best way to prepare yourself is to understand and follow proper court etiquette so the room will take you seriously. Be mindful that improper etiquette and disruptions can result in the judge ordering your removal from the court and delaying your hearing – not a good sign at all. Here are some things to consider:

  • Weapons and drugs are prohibited.
  • Remove sunglasses, hats, and hoods in court. Dress professionally and neatly.
  • Do not chew gum.
  • Avoid using “um.”
  • Stand up straight and speak clearly.
  • Be early – being late can render your bail null.
  • When asked...

What is a surety bond?

Martinez Bail Bond Store

When a person is arrested and jailed, their court date is not for another few week, months, maybe a year. Unless otherwise demanded by court, the arrestee has the option to hire a bail bond agent to assist them in posting bail so they can leave jail and live and work until they must reappear in court. This bond that the agent posts is called a surety bond.

Because surety bonds are backed by insurance companies, there must be enough cash or collateral to cover the entire bond amount should the defendant miss their court date. The fee for a surety bond is set by the insurance company, and it is often 10% of the total bond amount.

For more information or to get started on a case, call Martinez Bail Bond Store at 925-228-5858...
