You’re Not Invincible From Jail

Ceres Bail Bonds

You’re young and like to have a lot of fun. You like to party, drink, hang with friends, stay out late, and act as if you are invincible. But, everyone does, and not everyone has the best outcome. Many people just like you find themselves arrested and thrown in jail for offenses related to alcohol and partying. Often they’re fairly minor offenses but sometimes they’re way more serious than 24 hours in jail.

Ask the people who are sitting next to you in jail how they got there. You’ll end up with a handful of stories. They might tell you they were drinking and driving or got into an altercation after a night of drinking. The rest of the stories are ones you don’t really want to get into detail about…

But know this – all those people sitting in jail with you never really thought t...

3 Laws You Probably Have Broken Without Realizing It

Belvedere Bail Bonds

Have you sung happy birthday recently or went on the internet while you’re at Starbucks? Well, if you have, you broke the law! Really! There are quite a few laws out there that you and millions of others (including cops), have probably broken, but didn’t realize it.

  • Singing Happy Birthday in public could quickly turn a happy birthday into a sad one. The song is actually copyrighted. Just because it’s almost absurd NOT to sing the song during the party doesn’t mean the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers won’t file a suit. They actually threatened to sue the Girl Scouts of America.
  • Connecting to public WiFi networks, or wifi squatting, is against the law, even if it doesn’t ask for a password...

When The Cost Of A Music Festival Includes Bail

Modesto Bail Bonds

As the popularity of attending massive music festivals rises, so does the number of arrests, unfortunately. The most common offenses at music festivals are drug possession (most often ecstasy), public intoxication, and trespassing. Getting arrested for such violations at a music festival may be quite the bummer, but it should serve as a wake up call – some unfortunate incidents end in death.

These are generally misdemeanor charges with a fine and possibly jail time. But in the meantime, you can bail out of jail with a bail bond from Modesto Bail Bond Store. You or someone on your behalf will need to contact a bail agent from Modesto Bail Bond Store either through online chat or by phone at 209-575-1010.

Cyberbullying And How It Relates To Modesto Bail Bond Store

Modesto Bail Bonds

Cyberbullying (intentionally posting personal information of and/or harassing another person by electronic communication like texts, emails and social media with the intent of causing fear) seems like a rather harmless crime but in California, it’s taken very seriously. Cyberbullying has led victims to harm themselves, commit suicide, or act out and harm others.

Subject to a fine of up to $1,000, and a jail sentence of up to 1 year, cyberbullying itself is a misdemeanor conviction. It happens most among students but can and does happen among adults too.

School educators and administrators are trained to look out for signs of cyberbullying. There is a procedure they must follow when a cyberbullying case is identified and reported.

As mentioned, bullying cases can lead to more serious c...

Trouble Is Not In Your Vacation Plans

Modesto Bail Bonds

Grab your sunblock and your bathing suits because it’s time to travel! It’s the perfect weather to hit the beach or the lake – or some pool party. Our yearning for sunshine fun began with Spring Break and it won’t stop until the Fall. We can’t wait!

We have plans to travel to a specific place that we can’t always get to, and we may have trouble deciding what the final destination will be. But no matter where we go, there is one place that will linger behind, waiting for us to make one wrong move: jail.

No one wants their vacation to end abruptly with an arrest – especially an arrest that happens away from the home city. Being arrested away from home causes more headache of a procedure than it already would be.

You know what you can get yourself into, and you know how to take ca...

3 Reasons Tiburon Bail Bond Store Is The Best Bail Bond Company In California

Tiburon Bail Bonds

Here are 3 reasons why Tiburon Bail Bond Store is the best bail bond company in the state.

  1. Available 24/7
    The police don’t wait 8 hours overnight before making an arrest. Hospitals don’t close emergency rooms until the next work day. So, why should Tiburon Bail Bond Store make you wait until the next business day before getting you a bail bond? We’re not here to waste anyone’s time or make anyone wait in jail longer than they need to.
  2. Customized Payment Plans
    Financial situations at home are different for everyone. We all have different necessities to pay for at different costs, and some may have more dependents than others. Plus, we don’t all have the same income. So we don’t expect every single person to be able to afford the same bail bond at the same payment plan rate...

What Is A Governor’s Pardon?

Modesto Bail Bonds

Not every hard criminal is a truly bad person that their criminal record makes them out to believe. Some people are so determined to not let their arrest and conviction define them; they have the motivation to prove to others that they are a good, trustworthy person. For these very select individuals, they have the opportunity to be granted a California Governor’s Pardon.

A California Governor’s Pardon is an honor and privilege given to convicts who have shown outstandingly good behavior following their conviction. It helps provide relief for them from the penalties otherwise associated with a criminal conviction:

  • The person may own a firearm, unless their conviction stemmed from a crime that involved one.
  • The person may serve on a jury.
  • The person does not have to register as a se...

Expunging Vs. Sealing A Criminal Record

Modesto Bail Bonds

Having a criminal record can be haunting, especially for a person who is generally a good and honest person. And we know that employers and banks (and others) are able to access arrest and conviction records during criminal background checks. Is it possible to have any information on a criminal record sealed, so that in the future, it won’t show up during a criminal background check? After all, it was years ago, a minor issue, and that person has been on very good behavior since.

Well, it is possible and there are two ways to do this: expunging or sealing the record.

  • Sealing a record means that it can no longer be accessed by normal means. So employers, for example, who are running a background check on you, will not see any records that have been sealed...

Believe It Or Not: Most Expensive Bail In U.S. History

Modesto Bail Bonds

If you’re curious to learn just how expensive bail can be, check out some of these real cases where bail has been set among the most expensive in United States history (and some of the most high-profile and media-covered cases):

O.J. Simpson
O.J. Simpson is most famously known being found not guilty in murdering his wife and her lover in the 1990s. But when he was arrested in the 2000s for robbing a hotel casino, his bail was originally set at $125 thousand then raised to $250 thousand after violating his bail terms and conditions. Simpson bailed out using a bail bond, which cost him probably only 10-15% of his bail price.

Bernie Madoff
Accused of fraud and the $50 billion Ponzi scheme, Madoff was granted $10 million bail, but unable to gather 4 bail bond cosigners, his bail conditions ...
