Gambling Laws Of California

Modesto Bail Bonds

Many types of gambling are illegal in California, but at least Las Vegas is not too far away! It is worth noting that not all forms of gambling are outlawed in California.


Here are some ways gamblers can get their fix without having to leave California:

Gambling Laws Of CA

  • INDIAN CASINOS – These are similar to Vegas-style casinos with card tables, bingo, and slot machines. These casinos are built on Indian land and are protected. This is why they are allowed to operate in California.
  • CARD CLUBS – Players must pay a fee in order to participate. Instead of betting against other players, they are betting against the “house.”
  • PARI-MUTUEL HORSE WAGERING – This style is where bets are pooled so they are betting against each other instead of the “house...

The Dangers Of Street Racing In California

Modesto Bail Bonds

Street racing has definitely become more popular in recent years thanks to a number of movies and video games alike. Street racing can be very dangerous to participate in in real life and is against the law in California.

Some people may think that street racing is just a bit of harmless fun, but they would be wrong. These people fail to take into account all of the lives they are putting in harm’s way. When someone is racing through the streets, they are driving at a high rate of speed and can drive erratically in an attempt to avoid other drivers. This creates an unsafe environment for innocent bystanders who have no idea the race is even taking place.

All it takes is one wrong move and someone can get hurt or killed...

It Is You To The Rescue!

Modesto Bail Bonds

Hypothetically, if you were arrested today and needed to tell your closest friends and family what happened, how would you want them to react, as opposed to how you think they will react? You would want them to be concerned, but relieved you are alive and all right. You would want them to support you. You would want them to help you out in any way possible, whether it is bailing you out of jail, picking your kids up from soccer practice, or notifying your employer.

Now think about how you need to react when you learn that a loved one of yours has been arrested. There is no doubt that you will feel angry and disappointed, but remember that they know you are feeling this.

What Is Idling & What does It Have To Do With Cars?

Modesto Bail Bonds

The coldest days are behind us for the year here in Southern California, but Northern California is still colder and the North-East is still getting snow. It sure would be nice to go from a warm home into a warm car so we do not endure the cold weather too long or at all. Unfortunately, it is not that easy. Rather, it is not exactly legal here in California and much of the United States. By this, we mean that it is illegal to warm up a vehicle, and then get into it once it is nice and toasty.

Turning on the car to get it warm before you get in and drive off is called idling and it is actually a misdemeanor charge here in California that can give you a fine. There is actually a “grace period” or maximum idling time allowed in California and that is 5 minutes...

California Has Gun Storage Laws

Modesto Bail Bonds

California sets specific rules and laws for gun owners and how their guns are to be stored at home. They cannot just be left lying around! You would think this is common sense, but you would be surprised at how negligent some gun owners can be.

If gun owners to do not comply with the proper gun storage laws, they can be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony if there are minors living at home with them.

Guns that are poorly stored can fall into the wrong hands, like a young child who reaches for the weapon and accidentally fires it. You have probably heard about real-life incidents such as this in the news at some point, whether or not it was a case that occurred in California or another state.

If a parent stores their loaded firearm in an unlocked drawer that their child can reach, the...

Can I Get In Trouble For Not Reporting A Crime I Just Witnessed?

Modesto Bail Bonds

When a crime occurs and you’re around to witness it, do you have to report it to the police? Is it a moral obligation or a legal one? Most people don’t really know where the line is drawn. Sometimes no, you don’t legally have to report it, but other times, yes you do.

If you assisted another person in his or her crime, but did not actually commit the crime yourself, you can be charged if you know of the illegal plan and helped facilitate it. This can be disabling a security camera while the main suspect robs a bank.

If you witness someone committing a violent crime (rape, sexual assault, etc.) against a child 14 years or younger, you must report the crime. Failure to do so can lead to jail time and/or a fine for you.

If you are a particular professional (such as an educator, social...
