Bouncing Back From An Arrest

Newman Bail Bond Store

“Bouncing back” (as they call it) from an arrest can either be easy or hard and that’s largely up to you. You need to:

  • Prove to your family that their love and close support is your priority, and that you will not let them down.
  • Show friends you are not the person to go to jail again.
  • Reassure your employer that your work will not be affected again.
  • Apologize to any strangers who may have been directly involved in your incident, if necessary. You sure didn’t mean any harm.
  • Work with your lawyer to build a strong defense.
  • Let court know you are truly sorry for the mistake and deeply regret any involvement you had.
  • Believe yourself when you say you are stable to move on from the incident and not allow yourself to fall into any sort of bad situation again.

What Is A False Arrest And False Imprisonment?

Oakdale Bail Bond Store

A false arrest is when Person A acts beyond their authority and wrongfully takes Person B into custody. This restricts Person B’s freedoms against his or her consent. A false imprisonment is similar to kidnapping, but without the more serious intentions like harm and ransom. A false arrest is a crime and the victim is allowed to sue for damages.

An example of a false arrest made by the police: the victim verbally insulted an officer, who then arrested him or her. The verbal insult set the officer off (verbally insulting the officer was not a crime and the victim truly did not commit any other crime) and he or she got furious, put them in cuffs, and took them to the station.

An example of false imprisonment by an individual: a security guard stops a shopper from exiting, saying she ha...

What You Can Do To Bring A Loved One Home From Jail

Patterson Bail Bond Store

If you know a friend or family member in jail who needs help bailing out, you need to act quickly to help them out. The faster you connect with a bail bond company on your friend or family member’s behalf, the sooner the paperwork will be processed (it can take a few hours), and the sooner your loved one will be out of jail.

You should be the one to call a bail company. You have access to a phone and a computer to do accurate research for a reliable company. Not all bail companies will have your needs at their interests, to be honest. You will also need to begin thinking about how and where from you can collect funds to pay the premium for the company (10% of the full bail amount). Luckily, most bail bond companies like Patterson Bail Bond Store will allow you to pay off the premium ...

Are There Any “Pros” To Bail Bond Store?

Riverbank Bail Bond Store

Bail bonds automatically generate a negative connotation in someone’s mind – “a lot of money that needs to be paid to get someone, who committed a crime, out of jail.” Basically, someone committed a crime but will go free until their trial as long as they pay x amount of money. But there are some pros to bail and bail bonds that are equally important (if not more important) to know:

  • Posting bail helps with jail overcrowding. Unfortunately, jails are overcrowded with the number of people serving short sentences or waiting trial (who didn’t or cannot bail out).
  • Posting bail ensures your safety (or your loved one’s safety, whoever the bail bond is for). You will be safe at home, in a familiar and comfortable surrounding, rather than in jail with other potentially dangerous p...

You’ll Never Guess What Led To This Man’s Conviction

Turlock Bail Bond Store

Earlier this Summer, a young man was convicted of a crime (involving firearms), but you’ll never guess what led the officers and prosecution to this. The man had photos on his Instagram account that dated back to 2013 that showed him with the guns in question. The police were able to use this as probable cause to search the man’s house. This led to his conviction.

In fact, the police department acknowledged that they have a special unit they dub as the “social media officers.” These guys are the pros at catching evidence and criminals online.

This goes to show that what you post on social media is really “out there” for other people to see, even if your account is private...

Prison And Jail Are Not The Same Thing, Exactly

Modesto Bail Bond Store

You probably think that prison and jail are interchangeable terms that both apply to the same place: where convicts must stay behind bars for a crime they committed. While you are somewhat correct in this, the two terms actually apply to separate institutions that are built for different people in different points of situations. Think short-term and long-term.

Jails are short-term locations that are operated by local governments. This is where people who are waiting for their trial will stay if they don’t or cannot bail out. This is also where people who have finished their trial and given a short-term (a few months, 1 year) sentence will stay until they are released. Various growth and rehabilitation programs are available, such as work-release, boot camp, educational classes, etc.

Knowing Your Rights For Bail And Jail

Newman Bail Bond Store

When someone is arrested, they don’t always know their rights, nor are they confident about them. This leaves them vulnerable and subject, for the police, the prosecutors, and the court. To avoid being taken advantage of and punished more than a person should be, they should know these rights:

  • A person is innocent until proven guilty in court.
  • A person has the right to a fair and speedy trial by their peers, a jury.
  • A person has the right to know and understand the charges being made against them.
  • A person has the right to an attorney, and if he or she cannot afford one, a public defender will be appointed to them.
  • A person has the right to make a phone call after being arrested.
  • A person will receive their property and belongings back when they are released from jail, as long a...

Some Schools Begin Soon – Are You Prepared To Send Your Child Off?

Patterson Bail Bond Store

Some California schools are just weeks away from welcoming its students back for the new school year, including colleges. That means many parents are sending their child(ren) off again, probably without seeing them until Thanksgiving. They’ll be taking classes, but also living with their friends, going to parties, staying up very late, and probably doing things they don’t want their parents to know about.

Parents, that’s all part of the college experience. Unfortunately, there often isn’t much you can do to prevent your child from “experimenting” and drinking, etc., especially if they are living away from home. But you can make sure they understand the consequences of certain actions and most importantly, let them know that you trust them to make safe decisions...

Am I Breaking The Law By Watching TV Shows And Movies Online?

Riverbank Bail Bond Store

More and more people are increasingly turning on their computers to stream their favorite TV shows and movies instead of flipping on their television set, going to the theater, or renting a DVD. It’s cheaper (or even free) and they can watch their shows at their own leisure. There are so many sites on the internet to access shows and movies and boy isn’t it nice! But, you must be wondering – it’s almost too good to be true that you’re probably wondering if all this streaming you’re doing is 100% legal. Well, the answer to that remains in that grey, cloudy area called “it depends.”

Generally, it’s best to avoid the hosting sites that offer you access to multiple links to the same TV show or movie...
