Small Ways To Save Money

Modesto Bail Bonds

A savings account acts as a financial security blanket. Ideally, this savings account will be for future large wanted purchases like a wedding, a home, vacations, and your children’s college tuition. This is an account that should never be touched to withdraw money from – money only gets deposited into it. However, these savings accounts also come in handy when unexpected payments come up. A good example of this would be the sudden need to pay for bail.

Bail can be thousands of dollars, even if a person is bailing out of jail with a bail bond. Instead of having to scramble to get the money for bail, this person can hopefully get most, if not all, of the funds from their savings account.

There are many ways to grow a savings account, which include the obvious: saving a portion of each ...

What To Do When Your Loved One Needs You Most

Modesto Bail Bonds

When a person is arrested, it is too easy to believe that the rest of their life as they had planned it to be goes down the drain. As far as they are concerned, their reputation is tainted for life. They can kiss their dream job goodbye, and some friends and family will distance themselves. As far as they are concerned, they have little hope to cling to as they wait, scared, disappointed, and full of regret for the next steps after their arrest.

This is where you can swoop in and help save the day. Remind this person that no matter what happened, what they are being accused of, and what the eventual outcome is, you are going to support them throughout this whole situation.


Here are some things you can do to help your loved one:

A Look At Some Of The Most Expensive Bails In U.S. History

Modesto Bail Bonds

Last month, a Northern California woman named Tiffany Li had posted the country’s 8th highest bail in the U.S.’s state court history. Li, accused of murdering her ex-boyfriend and father to her two young children, was given a $35 million bail. She posted twice that amount in property. The equity in these properties comes from her family and business associates. Her family is rich and powerful in China, so meeting the bail requirements was hardly a struggle for Li. The $70 million in equity was reviewed and everything checked out properly, granting Li her release from custody.

As mentioned, this is an extremely expensive bail. Let us take a look at some even more expensive bails from the past.

What Are California’s Gun Laws?

Modesto Bail Bonds

It has been 15 months since the December 2015 terror attack in San Bernardino, California, yet the community has not quite recovered from the horrific loss. Just recently, they were struck with another tragedy: a shooting at an elementary school that left 2 adults and 1 eight-year-old child dead. With the nation watching on social media, discussion about California’s gun laws began immediately. Many pointed out that California’s gun regulations are relatively strict compared to other states.

A Mother’s Day Miracle: The Whole Family Together

Modesto Bail Bonds

All any mother wants on Mother’s Day is to spend the day with her family. She does not get a full family day like this very often anymore. Her children are older now. They may be away for college, or live and work in another state. They may even have their own little families to raise. In some rare cases, someone in the family may be in police custody for committing a crime. Getting everyone together can be a challenge in so many ways. Nonetheless, a mother deserves her special day, so the family will do everything they can to see that everyone is present. That includes bailing out the one who is in jail.

Bailing a person out of jail does not need to be as complicated and stressful as you might think...

Instead Of Drinking And Driving…

Modesto Bail Bonds

We hate to boast, but California is quite a lively state and is filled with plenty of day and night activities. The cities, towns, clubs, bars, and beaches all share one rule: drinking and driving is a no-no. Today, with the many transportation options out there, there really is no excuse.

Don't Drink & Drive

You can designate a sober person in the group to be the driver for the night. Have someone drop you off then pick you up later. Walk or take public transportation. Call a cab, Lyft, or Uber. You have plenty of options to choose from.

The cost of a DUI is astronomical compared to paying for bus fare or an Uber driver. For a first time offense in California, a DUI can be up to $1,000 which does not include any possible hospital bills or car repairs.

CA May Become The First Sanctuary State

Modesto Bail Bonds

California is one step closer to becoming America’s first “sanctuary state.” The country already has 300+ sanctuary cities that vow to protect undocumented immigrants from deportation and help them find security. California’s senate advanced bills that would create a statewide sanctuary for undocumented immigrants.

CA Sanctuary City

It is estimated that some 2.3 million illegal immigrants live in California. That is 2.3 million people in California alone who are in danger of being deported by President Trump’s immigration order. If the bills pass, local and state police do not need to fully cooperate with federal immigration authorities. California currently has a number of sanctuary cities such as Berkeley, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Local authorities in these sanctuary cities already do n...

How To Get Out Of Jail

Modesto Bail Bonds

In the justice system, “arraignment” is when a defendant, stands before a judge for the first time. This is not part of the trial. Arraignment occurs after the arrest and booking process, but before the trial. This is when the defendant is formally charged for a crime and the judge decides the defendant’s immediate fate. The judge will decide whether the defendant will be allowed bail, and if so, how much or if he or she is to remain in custody during the trial. Being released from jail poses a few options that are up to the judge:

New Driving Laws In California – 2017 Edition

Modesto Bail Bonds

There are a couple of new driving laws you are going to want to know about if you are a Californian. They involve cell phone use and are very closely related to the existing laws.

The old laws had a loophole where drivers would hold their cell phone in their hand while driving because they were using their GPS. The old law never stated the phone had to be mounted to the vehicle. The new laws that are now in effect require the phone to be mounted in certain locations, the lower right corner or the lower left corner of the windshield or onto the center console. A cell phone may not be attached to the middle of the windshield because it is obstructing clear view. In addition, drivers may use one finger to conduct a single swipe or tap on the screen.
