Bail Options For You To Know

Turlock Bail Bonds

When a person is arrested, they will have to face 1 of 3 scenarios, which is up to the judge to choose. The judge can:

  1. Deny Bail – The defendant has no choice but to remain in custody. The judge has determined that this person is too dangerous to be released from jail.
  2. Grant Bail Release – The defendant may pay a dollar amount to be assigned by the judge in order to be released.
  3. Grant Own Recognizance Release – The defendant signs paperwork promising to show up for court and is released. No payment is required.

Clearly, being granted own recognizance release is the most ideal scenario, but the judge only grants this to those who otherwise have no criminal activity and are trustworthy enough to show up for court.

If granted bail, the defendant can pay cash bail, 100% of the full ba...

Remember This If You Are Ever Stopped By The Police

Ceres Bail Bonds

You do not have to be suspected of committing a crime for the police to stop and question you. The police stop and speak with all kinds of people daily, it is their job. If it ever happens to you, try and remember this:

  • Get the officer’s name and badge number.

New Laws To Prevent Distracted Driving

Bystrom Bail Bonds

We all know that using cell phones while driving is a no-no. It has been illegal for several years now, but since the original bills were put into effect, the intelligence of smartphones has increased. They can access social media, texts, email, video chat, and have better GPS. It is no secret that we rely on our smartphones for practically everything these days, or that we are on our phones all the time. To keep up with smartphones, new laws regarding cell phone use and driving have been put into place this year, which extend on the existing laws.

The new laws are meant to prevent distracted driving and say that the only phone interaction a driver may have is one single swipe or tap. The laws also state that the phones must be properly mounted to the car.

The minimum punishment if caught...

Texting And Driving? Too Much, New Laws

Hughson Bail Bonds

Let us be real, these days, texting and driving is no longer texting and driving. It is more like social media-ing and driving, or navigating maps and driving, because smart phones have come so far in just a few years. This has caused driving and cell phone laws to be expanded, starting this year.

Starting this year, cell phones must be mounted to the dash, the lower left or upper left corner of the windshield, if the driver wishes to use it while driving. With it mounted, the driver may make one single tap or swipe on the phone.

Other laws regarding cell phone use while driving still exist of course, but the new ones just expanded on them.

The goal is to reduce distracted driving and consequences of such instances like accidents and arrests.

Hughson Bail Bond Store believes in safety fir...
