What Some Officers Don’t Tell You About Bail And Your Rights

Concord-Bail-Bonds

  • You are entitled to a fair and speedy trial
  • You have the right to know the charges against you
  • You are allowed to make a call after being arrested
  • You have the right to post bail
  • You are entitled to have your property and valuables returned to you upon release from jail

Getting Arrested Could Be The Best Thing To Happen To A Person

Clayton-Bail-Bonds

Sometimes getting arrested could be the best thing that has ever happened to a person.

They live their life dangerously, hurting themselves and those who care about them physically, mentally, emotionally. They do not know how to stop their troubles because they think there is no use – why waste the effort of trying to turn their life around when they know things will just crumble again? The men and women who care about them don’t know what more they can do before exhausting themselves.

At some point, this person is arrested. Once at least and maybe twice or more. And for many, this is the point where they truly get a wake up call...

Doing Proper Research Can Save You From Choosing An Unreliable Company

Martinez-Bail-Bonds3

In California, there are hundreds of bail agencies eager to take anyone’s business. We all do the same work – posting a bail bond so someone can get out of jail. So it doesn’t really matter what company you choose, right?

Wrong.

Not all bail companies are as reliable or as affordable. Some companies fail to maintain proper communication with clients, leaving them confused, frustrated, and abandoned. Some companies charge interest, down payments, and have hidden fees in their paperwork, leaving clients with emptier wallets.

Do some research before choosing a bail bond company. See what former clients have had to say about them. Double check the fees. Ask questions before committing to their services (like requesting a quote).

Trust us, you’ll be glad you did your research to find ...

How Bail Controls Population In Jail

Modesto Bail Bonds

Even with all the prisons and jails in the United States, it’s sad to say that they are all overcrowding. And because prisons and jails cannot accommodate all offenders, many who have been sentenced for a less serious crime are released before doing their whole time. Bail can help alleviate this issue a bit.

For people who are arrested and have little or no criminal history, they can likely bail out of jail. This means they can go home instead of being crowded up in the jail with the hundreds of others who are there. This opportunity to bail out of jail is so much more desirable than sitting in jail for days, no matter the cost of bail.

If the arrested can pay their own bail, great. If not, there is still hope! That hope is contacting a bail bond agency like Modesto Bail Bond Store...

You Could Get Ticketed Just For Crossing Some Los Angeles Streets

Modesto Bail Bonds

Perhaps you’ve heard the recent born-again debate about crazy jaywalking tickets distributed to pedestrians in Los Angeles – predominantly Downtown Los Angeles.

The situation has been brought to light by a man in his early 20s who was cited $197 for dashing across an intersection when the crossing countdown still had 10 seconds on it – plenty of time for him to catch the bus on the other side of the street so he can get to school. Instead, he missed the bus when a police officer stopped him and issued the ticket.

Recent studies have shown that with the population growth and revitalization of Downtown Los Angeles, 4 times as many similar tickets have been given out as other Los Angeles neighborhoods...

How Martinez Bail Bond Store Can Help You Find Out If There Is A Warrant Out For You

Martinez-Bail-Bonds3

You knowingly did something illegal but you haven’t gotten caught for it yet. That doesn’t mean the police don’t know about it, won’t ever know about it, or aren’t currently trying to track you down.

Martinez Bail Bond Store can help you check if a warrant has been issued for your arrest. And, we do this search anonymously. We check your name and the place you think the warrant may be. We may also need other personal information like birthdate. If there is no warrant, you must remember that there could be a warrant tomorrow, next week, next month. If there is a warrant, then we will discuss your bail options before you turn yourself in. This will speed up the process a little bit after so you can be released as soon as possible.

Don’t Let The Travel Bug Get You Into Jail Elsewhere!

Martinez-Bail-Bonds1

You’ve caught the travel bug this warm season and you think you’ve got your prepping and packing on lock. But we will bet you’re not thinking about one thing that can either make or break your trip: the laws that govern the place you’re visiting!

As a general rule you know that what’s right and wrong in your hometown is likely similar to where you’re traveling. However there may be additional strict rules you’re unaware of and there may be more law rules. For example, in California, it is illegal to text and drive. In Montana, it is legal to do this. In California, people wear minimal clothing and revealing clothing all the time. But in other countries where the weather is hotter, visitors can get in trouble for wearing short shorts and a tank top.
