California Parole Violations

California Parole Violations

The state of California has what is known as a mandatory parole system. This means that any time a person finishes their prison sentence, they have to then be put on parole. When a person is on parole, they may be out of jail, but they have to live a restricted lifestyle. There will be certain conditions placed upon the person that they need to follow.

If the person fails to follow those conditions, they could get themselves into even more trouble. That is the last thing a person wants when they are on parole and so close to being done with their punishment. This is why a parolee has to take their parole terms and conditions seriously.

California Restraining Orders

California Restraining Orders

Everyone just wants to feel safe. Unfortunately, some people meet someone that does not let them feel safe when they are near. In some cases, just putting some distance between that other person is enough to get them to leave the other alone. Unfortunately, not everyone can take the hint.

Sometimes the person continues to bother the victim to the point that they seek legal help in the form of a restraining or protective order. No matter which term the person uses, the effect is the same. The other person is legally banned from communicating with or going anywhere near the victim for a set length of time.

What Is A Restraining Order?

A restraining order, or a protective order, is a court issued document that informs a proven abuser that they need to keep a certain distance away from their ...

You Don’t Need Collateral Here

You Don’t Need Collateral Here

Collateral is not something that people get excited about. It adds an extra level of stress to what is already a stressful situation. Making a large financial commitment, such as posting someone’s bail, already costs a lot of money. Needing to pledge collateral only makes things worse. With collateral you have to worry about paying for the bail and losing something important if you miss a payment.

For those unaware, collateral is a type security for a loan. What this means is, that something of value equal to the loan in question, is pledged by the person getting the loan. If they fail to payback their loan, then the lender gets to keep whatever was pledged as repayment for the loan. It is easy to see how collateral can add extra stress to a person getting a loan.

California’s Stand Your Ground Laws

California’s Stand Your Ground Laws

The last thing anyone wants is to be put in a dangerous situation where they need to defend themselves from an attacker. Unfortunately, this situation does happen on rare occasions. As if this wasn’t bad enough, there are some states in the US that don’t allow people to defend themselves with any means necessary. This means that in some states, a person who may have killed someone in self-defense, could actually face murder charges.

Due to this fact, a person needs to be aware of their state’s laws when it comes to self-defense, particularly stand your ground laws.

Castle Defense

Here in California, the state does not have a stand your ground law, but it does have a Castle Doctrine. Penal Code 198.5 allows a person to use deadly force within their own home so long as certain worries...

Legally Dealing With Coyotes And Mountain Lions

Legally Dealing With Coyotes And Mountain Lions

California is a very big state. The state is home to nearly 40 million people. Living alongside all of us people, are millions of animals as well. As our cities expand, they encroach on wildlife and their territory. This pushes many animals to begin looking for food amongst human settlements.

When it comes to animals such as pigeons, rats, and crows, things might get annoying, but rarely dangerous. However, that is not the case for predatory animals such as coyotes and mountain lions. These animals hunt for a living, and will turn to hunting livestock, family pets, and even small children in times of desperation.

Can You Refuse A Breathalyzer?

Can You Refuse A Breathalyzer?

With all of the driving that people do every single day, it can be easy for everyone to forget that driving is a privilege, not a right. As such, there are all sorts of things that a driver has to do in order to retain their privilege of having a driver’s license. Most of these things are pretty obvious, such as following driving laws.

Despite the obvious things that people have to do, there is one thing that some people don’t realize they agreed to the moment they got their license. This task would be agreeing to take a breathalyzer test whenever an officer asks.

California Vehicle Code 23612

While people are right in assuming that tests can only be performed on them if they give their consent, they fail to realize that they already gave their consent for a breathalyzer test...
