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.

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.

Another new driving-related law more clear...

DUI Checkpoint Happenings

Modesto Bail Bonds

If you are driving at night and you come upon a section of a street that is coned off, has extra lights, and more police officers than normal, and they are not responding to a situation, it is likely a DUI checkpoint. Unless you are actually driving while intoxicated at the moment you will not have anything to worry about when you are motioned to pull over to their coned off area.

The officer will ask where you are going, if you have been drinking, and if so, how much. If everything checks out, you will be free to keep going to your destination. Those who are found under the influence will have to sit at their on-site Drunk Tank to sober up. Worst case scenario is that the driver would be arrested, but that is usually under the more extreme circumstances.

What Determines Own Recognizance Release

Modesto Bail Bonds

Not all who are arrested are given the opportunity to be released on own recognizance, which is when a defendant signs formal papers promising to show up for court, then is released from jail.
