California’s Attitude Towards Illegally Obtained Evidence

California’s Attitude Towards Illegally Obtained Evidence

Most of us assume that the laws about what is and what isn’t legally obtained evidence to be black and white; however, there are actually quite a few gray areas when it comes to illegally obtained evidence in California.

One example of the murkiness surrounding how evidence is obtained is a police officer who happened to notice what looked an awful lot like a drug-related transaction. Unable to ignore the situation, the officer approached the car and after a brief skirmish, the officer found that the car was full of drugs, ammo, and an alarming number of weapons. The question is, since the officer didn’t have a warrant, could the evidence be used as proof of guilt.

The Fourth Amendment was created to protect citizens from illegal search and seizures, and to make it nearly impossible f...

Can They Really Tax Soda?

Can They Really Tax Soda?

In recent years, cities across the country have begun to add an additional tax on sodas and other sugary drinks in an effort to reduce their sales. The hope with these taxes is that it will discourage people from buying the drink, and therefore help lower peoples risk of obesity and diabetes. Naturally, this is a very touchy subject for many people who dislike it when the government adds additional taxes onto things.

This all began back in 2014 when Berkeley, California became the first city in the US to put a tax on sugary drinks. The tax was 1 cent for every ounce of the drink. Since then, other cities have followed suite across the nation, which has the soda industry concerned...

Vaping In California: What You Need To Know

Vaping In California: What You Need To Know

Smoking tobacco has always been a pretty big hobby. Lately, however, it has been facing unexpected competition. This has come in the form of electronic cigarettes. When a person uses an e-cig, they are inhaling water vapor with different additives, rather than inhaling tobacco smoke. While vaping is a slightly healthier option than smoking, it still faces restrictions just like tobacco products.

Even though e-cigs and other vaping products contain no tobacco, the state of California still classifies them as tobacco products.

This means that the use of e-cigs faces many of the same restrictions of as regular cigarettes. This means that a person does need to be wary of some laws when using e-cigs.

In California, a person now has to be 21 or older in order to purchase any tobacco products...

The Differences Between Jail And Prison

Oakdale Bail Bonds

Jail and prison are technically not the same place; they’re not two terms that refer to the same institution. What are the differences?

  • Jails hold people for short-term periods – people who have recently been arrested but have yet to post bail, people who are waiting for trial, and convicted people who are serving short sentences (usually up to 1 year). Jails are run by local governments and police departments. Specialized services are typically offered, such as work release and programs that focus on education needs, substance abuse and others.
  • Prisons hold convicted individuals who are serving long term sentences for their crimes. Prisons are operated by state and federal governments...

Bail Is An Option With Tax Money

Oakdale Bail Bonds

Bail is ridiculously expensive, period. Most people won’t easily have enough money to post bail on their own. Even getting extra money back from the IRS during tax season won’t be enough money to bail out of jail. However, that extra tax return money might be enough to afford a bail bond from Oakdale Bail Bond Store; a bail bond is an alternative method to bailing out of jail, and they only cost 10-15% of the full bail amount.

The cost of bail bonds will be paid on a payment plan, meaning the defendant will be released from jail before the entire 10-15% is paid off. But the main catch that levels this against paying the full bail price directly with the court is that the 10-15% paid to the bail bond company is not refundable at the end of the case, whereas 100% of the bail that is pai...

Using Taxes To Your Bail Bond Benefit

Oakdale Bail Bonds

Taxes are the last thing you want to think about or take care of this time of year, but really, they shouldn’t be put off to the last minute. And maybe this year you have better reason to get them done as soon as possible – you’ve got bail bond payments to make.

You might have to pay extra taxes before the close of the year and if so, make sure you have budgeted out your money. You’re going to need to be able to afford your upcoming bail bond payments because if you miss one, the bail bond could be revoked.

You might receive a tax refund from the IRS and if so, then you’ll have a little bit of leeway with your money for the next few months. You can use your tax refund money to pay for bail and get ahead on bail payments.

The important takeaway – do not fall behind on bail bond p...
