Factors To Determining Bail

Modesto Bail Bonds

Bail for a defendant is going to be based on a number of criteria.

  • What the crime was.
  • Whether or not the defendant has a prior record of criminal activity.
  • The bonds he or she has with other members of the community (flight risk).
  • His or her financial standing.

There is such a thing called a bail schedule that exists. The judge follows this bail schedule that outlines bail amounts per crime, while also weighing in the rest of the above factors too.

Once the judge announces the bail, the defendant or someone on their behalf will need to contact Modesto Bail Bond Store to get bail bond paperwork filled out and processed. Once that is done, he or she is freed and can return home to live until and during trial!

Family Over Everything

Modesto Bail Bonds

Let Modesto Bail Bond Store Ease Your Worries

Modesto Bail Bonds

Among a parent’s most frightening thoughts is that their child is going to be or has been arrested. In this moment, they want to be there to help their child as much as they can but frankly, there is only so much they can do – it is not like the parent can tell the police to arrest them in the place of their child.

If their child is 17 or younger, their post-arrest process is a little more forgiving – fines, community service, and the opportunity to have their records sealed when they turn 18. But when they are 18 or older, the post-arrest process is more complex: possible jail or prison time.

The first thing that needs to be done in this latter situation is to call Modesto Bail Bond Store. Modesto Bail Bond Store will work with you to get a low cost, fast bail bond that will allow ...

Basically, this bail bond is what is going to get your loved one out of jail. Plus, you don’t have to pay the whole bail bond at once. You will work with the bail bond company and set up a payment plan.

CA Felon Voting Rights May Soon Change

Modesto Bail Bonds

Voting rights for some convicted felons in California could soon change – possibly. Currently in California, the law only allows convicted felons to vote only when they have been released from jail and completed parole; their voting rights are automatically restored upon completion. But now there is a new bill (AB2466) that petitions to give felons the right to vote in California elections while they are serving their prison sentence.

If passed, California would become the third state in the U.S. to allow convicts to vote from behind bars. The other two states that already allow this for their criminals are Maine and Vermont.

The bill has restrictions; it would only apply to low-level felons in county jails. It does not apply to felons serving time in state or federal prison...

Just When You Think You Got Away

Modesto Bail Bonds

One unpaid parking ticket – you think you can get away with it for awhile. They have way more important matters to follow up on instead of your ticket. This ideology will only go so far, if it has even gotten you anywhere to begin with. You may think that because no one has followed up on your unpaid bills and tickets, that you are off the hook and forgotten about, or too far gone that it is not worth the police digging up again. So you continue to let those unpaid bills and tickets pile up.

This is definitely not a good idea because trust us, the police and the government are not going to forget...

Your Loved One May Not Be Thinking Straight, So You Need To

Modesto Bail Bonds

Even if your loved one is so befallen with guilt about the crime he or she has just been arrested for, to the point where he or she does not want to pay for bail, you, as their supportive loved one, should not let them sit there in jail for what will seem like forever. They may tell you not to help them bail out of jail, they may feel guilty for having you spend this money on them. But do not let it be their decision (they are not thinking straight). It should be yours, to help them bail out of jail.

And you do not have to pay the 100% cash bail. You can definitely go the more flexible and affordable route of bail bonds, where you will end up paying only 10% of the cash bail, and over a longer period of time.

Forget What You Think You Know About Bail Bonds

Modesto Bail Bonds

Whatever negative, threatening, and intimidating thoughts you have surrounding bail bonds and bail agents, you need to drop them, now.

What Cosigners And Defendants Need To Know

Modesto Bail Bonds

Cosigning onto a bail bond is a huge gesture of the signer towards the defendant who needs the bail bond. However, it also is a risk for the cosigner. And for the defendant, it is a lot of trust and good faith instill upon them, from the cosigner.

For the cosigner:

  • You are agreeing to be responsible for the defendant going to court. If the defendant fails to show up in court on his or her date, then you may be required to pay bail money and/or you may lose collateral.
  • Understanding this risk and responsibility, you may withdraw your name from the bail bond at anytime, without penalty.

For the defendant:

  • You are expected to show up in court as required. If you do not, your cosigner loses money and/or collateral that he or she pledged in your good name...
