Don’t Let Your Loved One Miss Halloween!

Modesto Bail Bonds

Every Halloween you and your boyfriend or girlfriend dress up in coordinating costumes: Mickey and Minnie, mustard and ketchup, etc. This year is going to be no different and you have already begun working on your DIY costumes.

Then unexpectedly, they are arrested one night. They are sitting in jail, and you are sitting at home frantically trying to figure out what is next and how you can afford to pay their bail.

It is quite alright if you two can’t come to that solution yourself – paying for cash bail is incredibly expensive and the fact of the matter is, most people cannot pay that so easily.

That’s where Modesto Bail Bond Store steps in to help mediate the stress, by offering a bail bond, an alternative to cash bail, but serves the same purpose...

Why You Need To Know About This Gun Law, Even If You Don’t Own A Gun

Modesto Bail Bonds

Owning a gun is serious business and requires a serious process. In California, gun laws are some of the most restrictive across the United States. And new laws are being passed regularly in an effort to curb violence and mishandling of guns. This year, there were a few pretty “big” gun laws that were passed, including one that is good for all people, not just gun-owners and sellers, to know.

If you have a family member who owns a gun, and you think they might commit a crime with it, you can alert the police, who will confiscate that person’s guns for 3 weeks. During these 3 weeks, the individual will be questioned and the concerns will be investigated.

This gun confiscation law is new and as you can see, pretty powerful, if people know about it and use it before it’s too late.

You Don’t Know Crazy Until…

Modesto Bail Bonds

If you think that your family and friends are a bunch of crazies, then you don’t really know crazy enough. Crazy is a bunch of people who act out too far for anyone’s good – illegally. They are the ones who are arrested for violating laws and committing crimes. They are the ones who popular jails and prisons. And for the most part, the craziest crazies in jail are rarely separated from the least crazy crazies in jail. They are all intermixed with each other.

This image that is forming in your head probably makes your family and groups of friends seem sane right about now. And the image of jail is making you more and more scared for the safety (and sanity) of your loved one who was just arrested and could use your help in posting a bail bond right about now.

And with that, you’re look...

Major Bail Bond Benefits

Modesto Bail Bonds

When we think of posting bail, we generally think of the negatives: paying a lot of money to someone else because you or your loved one did something wrong and got caught for it. But there are a number of really incredible and often overlooked benefits to paying for a bail bond, aside from getting a person out of jail.

  • Maintain Employment & Income – the defendant can return to work and continue to receive income.
  • Attend Family Gatherings & Obligations – the defendant won’t miss out on important family parties and obligations like birthdays, soccer games, and ballet recitals. The same goes for friends.
  • Prepare For Trial – this can be done from inside jail, but it’s so much easier when...

In Case You Didn’t Know

Manteca Bail Bonds

In case you didn’t know, in California, the legal age to smoke is 21, not 18. This change happened a couple of months ago in an effort to prevent youths from smoking.

The chances of landing in jail because of underage smoking are low, but trust us, it can happen. We at Manteca Bail Bond Store have seen every case in the book and this would not be surprising for us. We have seen everything, we have also successfully handled everything that came our way...

Halloween Checkpoints – What To Prepare For

Hughson Bail Bonds

Halloween for adults is completely different than Halloween for kids. Costumes are still involved, but instead of candy and trick-or-treating, it is going out to clubs and parties, while probably consuming copious amounts of alcohol. There is nothing wrong with that, until drinking and driving is involved.

We hope there will be none of that.

Nonetheless, expect there to be a few DUI checkpoints around the city over Halloween weekend. They are not in place to ruin everyone’s fun, just those who have been drinking and driving.

If you do drive into a checkpoint, follow the officer’s orders: pull over, roll down your window, and answer his or her questions of where you are going, where you are coming from, and if you have been drinking...
