Halloween Checkpoints – What to Prepare For

irvine bail bonds

Halloween for adults is completely different than Halloween for kids. Costumes are still involved, but instead of candy and trick-or-treating, it is going out to clubs and parties, while probably consuming copious amounts of alcohol. There is nothing wrong with that, until drinking and driving is involved.

We hope there will be none of that.

Nonetheless, expect there to be a few DUI checkpoints around the city over Halloween weekend. They are not in place to ruin everyone’s fun, just those who have been drinking and driving.

If you do drive into a checkpoint, follow the officer’s orders: pull over, roll down your window, and answer his or her questions of where you are going, where you are coming from, and if you have been drinking. The officer will then determine if you are coherent enough to drive safely on to your destination, if you must wait a little while at the checkpoint to sober up, or if you have to be arrested.

We hope no one is arrested over Halloween weekend, but just in case you, or someone you know is, and needs help bailing out of jail, please contact us at Irvine Bail Bond Store so we can assist with bail.

We can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, online and at 714-648-0586.

Do the Cops Need a Warrant for My Phone?

irvine bail bonds

Cell phones are small objects that can hold a lot of information and secrets. When the police want to look through it, in most cases, they will need a warrant. Instances where a warrant will not be required are:

  • The owner gives consent to the cops to search the phone.
  • When the police stop a person with reasonable suspicion that a crime has been, or will be committed, and frisk them.
  • The phone is in plain view, the phone may be in plain view for the officers to take. However, when texts and phone calls are concealed, and the cops go through this data without reason, then the judge could throw out this as evidence.
  • It was seized during a search on public school property.
  • The police are in pursuit of the suspect who can easily destroy their phone, which holds evidence.
  • These are general exceptions to the warrant issue, and truthfully, it does sound like many exceptions. However, each exception goes into much more detail, and in actuality, a more specific instance within one of these general situations may suddenly require a warrant. If you are confused, just keep doing research and talk to a lawyer for the specifics.

    In the meantime, we can help you bail your loved one out of jail since that is our expertise and we assure you that you will not be left feeling confused here. Contact Irvine Bail Bond Store online or call 714-648-0586.

    The Countdown to EDC… And Jail

    irvine bail bonds

    The ever-popular Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) music festival is a few weeks away and once again, it will be held in Las Vegas. The event draws hundreds of thousands of attendees each year. It has been held in Las Vegas over the past few years after moving from Los Angeles; the last time it was held in Los Angeles, an underage teen girl died of a drug overdose.

    Her death was the worst, but not the only issue. Multiple people were arrested for drugs and alcohol, and that is not the only year, nor the only event where this happens. Music festivals like EDC seem to be multiplying every year and at every event, the police make multiple arrests. At a handful of events, someone will die from a drug overdose.

    With EDC 2016 approaching, we hope that if you plan to attend, that you make good decisions for yourself and your friends. If you, or one of your friends, are arrested at EDC, then you face a more difficult bail and jail process because you are in Nevada, not California. Getting arrested out of state is always a little bit more of a headache.

    For anytime you need bail bond assistance within California, Irvine Bail Bond Store will be there for you. Call 714-648-0586, or you can chat with one of our team members online.

    Q&A Session on Irvine Bail Bond Store

    irvine bail bonds

    Most people are not familiar with bail and bail bonds, which we see as a good thing, because it means they have never needed to use one. However, for those who do become involved in this industry and are in need of one, it is good to get the basics down. We get many of the same questions repeated from different clients.

    Question: What is bail?
    Answer: Bail is the temporary release of a defendant, a recently arrested individual. A certain amount of money must be paid in order for the defendant to be released and the defendant is also promising to show up for court appointments.

    Q: How much is the financial requirement for bail?
    A: The bail price will depend on what crime took place, whether the defendant has a criminal history, and what ties and relationships he or she has with the community. Each person’s bail will be different and can be a few thousand dollars to a couple million.

    Q: What if I cannot afford a bail that is thousands or millions?
    A: Anyone willing to assist the defendant in paying for bail can. There is also the option of getting a bail bond, which costs only 10% of the full bail amount. Bail bonds may require co-signers and collateral. Again, anyone willing to assist with paying and pledging collateral for a bail bond can. Most people use bail bonds.

    Q: Who can I get a bail bond from?
    A: Irvine Bail Bond Store, one of California’s most trusted, reliable, and successful bail bonds companies.

    If you have additional questions regarding bail or bail bonds, or would like a free consultation for a bail bond, you can contact the Irvine Bail Bond Store team member anytime online, or at 714-648-0586.

    Heroes Face Consequences Too.

    irvine bail bonds

    As cliché as this is going to sound, this is life and in life, things do not always go the right way. We run into obstacles that we must work through, whether we like it or not. We lose friends, but we make new ones all the time. We may not get that job, house, or car, but might someday. Sometimes we are in the wrong place at the wrong time and end up getting arrested.

    Now, that is on the more extreme side of “this is life” but frankly, it can happen quite often. Trust us. Some individuals get caught up in the middle of a bad situation that they themselves never meant to be directly involved with. For example, a man is walking down the street and comes upon a second guy who happens to be drunk. There is a girl standing nearby. The drunk guy begins harassing the woman, who becomes startled and frightened, all the while trying to ignore him. The drunk guy gets too close and the first man comes to her defense. Unfortunately, the drunk man throws some punches and the other man fights back too. Quickly, the cops arrive – everyone is okay, but both men are arrested.

    In enters Irvine Bail Bond Store to bail both men out of jail. The now sober man is extremely apologetic for his actions, as is the always sober guy. Nonetheless, as unintentional as this was, both men must face the consequences of getting arrested and dealing with this charge on their record.

    Sometimes, we cannot help where we are. Sometimes, being a hero also means facing consequences. We at Irvine Bail Bond Store are here to help see that you or your loved one deals with the consequences as easily as possible. Let us help you post bail for your loved one.

    We offer affordable bail bonds, just talk to one of our reps to get all the details. Chat With Us online or call 714-648-0586 now.

    Your Phone Is Worth Way More Than You Think

    irvine bail bonds

    Your most expensive valuables may not be your car, home, fine China, or jewelry. Your most expensive valuables might actually be some items you use every day, such as your laptop and phone. They may have cost you a few hundred or couple thousand dollars, but it is very likely worth millions of dollars now, which is not a good thing.

    The majority of people download music and movies these days and watch and listen to these files time and again on their phones and laptops. On top of that, they may share these files with friends and family members. This is illegal and we doubt we really have to explain in deep detail why. Surface level: you are committing copyright infringement by taking a copy without paying for it.

    Most people are not caught and punished for doing this, which is why people tend to do so without double-thinking. It becomes a regular habit, but it is a punishable crime with fines and jail time. This is when your laptop and phone become worth millions of dollars.

    Irvine Bail Bond Store can help bail anyone out of a California jail. Hopefully, people will stop illegally sharing and downloading content, but if they are ever caught and arrested, count on Irvine Bail Bond Store to be right there to get them out of jail.

    We will help turn this around very quickly. Learn more about bail bonds and our team by chatting online or calling 714-648-0586.

    How to Prepare for Your Court Appearance

    irvine bail bonds

    Preparing for court, specifically as a defendant, can be very nerve-racking. It might seem like an odd comparison, but think of it like an interview. You need to appear professional and mature. You must be honest. You cannot let emotion overcome you. Here are some helpful pointers in preparing for your court date.

    • You should dress professionally. Remove sunglasses and hats. Do not wear flashy and distracting jewelry.
    • You need to arrive on time, or better yet, arrive early.
    • You should not chew gum.
    • Turn off your cell phone.
    • Speak clearly when you are spoken to. Say “yes” and “no” when warranted, do not shake your head to indicate those answers.
    • Acknowledge the judge as Your Honor.
    • Have any necessary paperwork ready.
    • Do not get angry and argumentative. You want to remain collected.
    • Stand and sit straight.
    • Remain focused and attentive. This is a serious matter concerning you.

    Your lawyer will be able to go over additional tips in preparation for court, as well as additional guidelines. Ideally, you can prepare for trial from the comforts and privacy of your own home. In order to get there, you will first need to bail out of jail. Remember, your trial likely will not start immediately after your bail hearing, it could be weeks or even months. You probably want to bail out of jail to live at home and return to a somewhat normal and routine life.
