Salida Bail Bonds

You have the right to remain silent. This is the first clause of the Miranda Rights, a set of rights the police must read aloud to anyone they arrest.

You have the right to an attorney. This is the second clause of the Miranda Rights.

The purpose of the Miranda Rights is to ensure that defendants are fully aware of their rights. Even if they are being arrested and accused of committing a crime, defendants have rights. Years ago, when the police were not required to read the Miranda Rights, the validity of some defendant’s confessions, and even the police’s interrogation methods, were questioned.

Can Defendants Travel While Out On Bail?

Riverbank Bail Bonds

Here are some examples:

  • Jane, out on bail, has no travel restrictions. This means she is allowed to travel to a neighboring city, another state, even out of the country. She just needs to make sure she shows up for her court appointments.
  • Gavin just posted bail and has travel restrictions. He is a California resident and is only allowed to travel to Oregon, Washington, and Arizona for family, friends, and business. Any states other than those are off-limits. If he violates these terms, he can be taken back into custody...

Cash Bail Vs. Bail Bonds

Modesto Bail Bonds

When needing to post bail, a defendant has a couple of options. Which option he or she chooses is dependent on what they can afford.

The first option is cash bail. For this option, the defendant, and anyone on his or her behalf, must pay the full bail amount to the court in order for the defendant to be released.

About The New California Cell Phone Use & Driving Laws

Modesto Bail Bonds

New California laws banning the use of cellphones while driving have officially been put into place starting January 1, 2017. While such laws have already existed in California for some time now, the new laws expand on existing ones. The existing ones are outdated, having begun when smart phones were less advanced than today, and apps like Waze and social media platforms were less popular.

The new laws say that drivers may only do a single swipe or tap on their phone, but their phone must be mounted on the dashboard or windshield in the driver’s lower left or upper left corner. A phone mounted in the middle of the windshield is illegal. This allows drivers to use their GPS maps while still maintaining focus on their driving and the road.

We know all the possible outcomes a car accident...
