Getting Arrested Could Be The Best Thing To Happen To A Person

Anaheim-Bail-Bonds

Sometimes getting arrested could be the best thing that has ever happened to a person.

They live their life dangerously, hurting themselves and those who care about them physically, mentally, emotionally. They do not know how to stop their troubles because they think there is no use – why waste the effort of trying to turn their life around when they know things will just crumble again? The men and women who care about them don’t know what more they can do before exhausting themselves.

At some point, this person is arrested. Once at least and maybe twice or more. And for many, this is the point where they truly get a wake up call. Their future is laid out on the table in front of them: continue this no-good lifestyle and land in prison for the rest of your life or worse, end up dead too soon.

They bail out of jail with the help of a bail bond company and they begin to refocus and improve their life. This time they have the will power and the man power, including professional help. They know the worst of the worst and they see this as their opportunity to speak to others who are or were like them, share their crippling story, and their success since then. By encouraging and inspiring others to stay away from trouble, they are encouraging and inspiring themselves.

This is how getting arrested could be the best thing that has ever happened to a person. Their arrest is reality dangling them over a cliff like they only have this one chance to change.

If you are ever arrested, or know someone who is, and need help in bailing out of jail, contact Anaheim Bail Bond Store at 714-648-0586now.

We will be a part of you or your loved one’s man power to redirect life towards a healthier and safer future.

How Bail Controls Population In Jail

Orange-County-Bail-Bonds-Services2

Even with all the prisons and jails in the United States, it’s sad to say that they are all overcrowding. And because prisons and jails cannot accommodate all offenders, many who have been sentenced for a less serious crime are released before doing their whole time. Bail can help alleviate this issue a bit.

For people who are arrested and have little or no criminal history, they can likely bail out of jail. This means they can go home instead of being crowded up in the jail with the hundreds of others who are there. This opportunity to bail out of jail is so much more desirable than sitting in jail for days, no matter the cost of bail.

If the arrested can pay their own bail, great. If not, there is still hope! That hope is contacting a bail bond agency like Orange County Bail Bond Store. Rather than paying the court the full bail amount, they will pay 10% of that to the bail agency. Some terms and conditions to this may include the need to have a co-signer to the bail bond and putting up collateral.

To you, it may not seem like bail makes a huge difference in the prison and jail systems. But it certainly does and we encourage you to help a loved one bail out if you’re ever in that position! Orange County Bail Bond Store will be happy to help.

Don’t waste your time with other bail agencies, call Orange County Bail Bond Store for real help at 714-648-0586.

You Could Get Ticketed Just For Crossing Some Los Angeles Streets

Orange-County-Bail-Bonds-Services1

Perhaps you’ve heard the recent born-again debate about crazy jaywalking tickets distributed to pedestrians in Los Angeles – predominantly Downtown Los Angeles.

The situation has been brought to light by a man in his early 20s who was cited $197 for dashing across an intersection when the crossing countdown still had 10 seconds on it – plenty of time for him to catch the bus on the other side of the street so he can get to school. Instead, he missed the bus when a police officer stopped him and issued the ticket.

Recent studies have shown that with the population growth and revitalization of Downtown Los Angeles, 4 times as many similar tickets have been given out as other Los Angeles neighborhoods. This has sparked many to urge the city and the law enforcement to change this silly law and keep up with modern times.

But, until that change happens, we encourage all you Angelenos to take precaution when you see the flashing red hand with a countdown and are considering stepping off the curb – even if you have more than enough time to safely make it across the intersection without running. The fact of the matter is that legally, once the walking signal changes to the flashing red hand, you are not supposed to cross. You can get cited for this infraction (crazy, we know!) and it will not be cheap, considering that this is such a harmless infraction.

  • Do not mouth off to the police.

Pros And Cons To Being A Bail Bond Co-Signer

Orange-County-Bail-Bonds-Services1

Just as with anything else, there are pros and cons to being a co-signer to someone’s bail bond, not matter how tight of a relationship you have with them. Essentially a co-signer does is sign off on a bail bond to ensure the legibility of it, taking responsibility for the defendant. Let’s weight the pros and cons to being a co-signer:

    Pros:

  • Because you are financially responsible for the defendant, you will very likely want to keep a close watch on them. You can keep a better eye on them to ensure they stay out of trouble. This is critically important to those who love the defendant most.
  • You are responsible for ensuring the defendant goes to court. So similarly, you will be doing everything in your power to see the defendant gets the best outcome of his or her trial by making sure the process runs as smooth as possible.
  • While co-signing the bond is legally binding, you can request to withdraw this, especially if you cannot trust the defendant.
  • You can require release conditions of the defendant, such as drug testing, to get an analysis of their condition and coherency.

    Cons:

  • Co-signing a bail bond is a legally binding. You are now financially responsible for paying the bail agent’s premium fee. You are now also responsible for paying consequential fees and the full bail amount if the defendant does not show up in court.
  • Any collateral you put up for the bail bond can be taken from you if the defendant fails to appear in court.
  • You will endure more emotional stress – but hopefully nothing you can’t handle.

The biggest thing you want to ask yourself before co-signing a bail bond is if you can trust the defendant to go to court, to be compliant with all terms and conditions, to ensure you do not lose your money or collateral because of his or her irresponsible actions.

5 Mistakes To Avoid When Posting Bail

Anaheim-Bail-Bonds

When you’re getting out of jail on a bail bond, you want to make sure everything goes smoothly. You’ve hit enough bumps in your road to get where you are. Avoid these 5 mistakes and your bail bond will post immediately with no trouble:

  1. Neglecting consequences of skipping bail. You’re warned that if you don’t show in court, your bail is forfeited, you would be arrested again without the option of bail, and you may face additional consequences. Plus, the cosigner of your bail bond, someone who really loves and cares about you, faces the risk of losing their collateral and paying the full bail amount. The court, police, and bail agency do not kid around on these consequences.
  2. Lying to the court and bail agency. This is verbal lying and lying on paperwork, like writing down a fake address of where you will be living after posting bail. Again, there will be consequences, which the court, police, and bail agency will warn you about.
  3. Thinking you have more time than you actually do to pay off your bail. Don’t put it off. It doesn’t look good on you. There could be consequences if you don’t meet deadlines.
  4. Hiring just any bail agent without doing research. Some bail agencies and agents are just after your money and will not be as helpful, compassionate, respectful, and professional as others. Look at old testimonials, know exactly what services they offer, etc.
  5. Getting arrested again. No further explanation necessary.

The Pros And Cons Of Cash Bonds And Bail Bond Store

Orange-County-Bail-Bonds3

The only way to get out of jail to live at home before and during your trial is to post bail. Now, there are two options for posting bail: paying in cash, or using a bail bond. Let’s explore the pros and cons of each:

CASH BAIL:

    Pros:

  • No third party involved with your bail.
  • Money is returned as long as you adhere to terms and conditions of bail, such as appearing in court when ordered.
  • Less paperwork.
  • No extra fees.
  • Shows court your bigger promise to return to court – it’s your money (or a loved one’s) on the line.

    Cons:

  • Must have all the money to pay at once. No payment plans.
  • Failure to show in court means cash bail is kept by court.
  • Refund is returned in check instead of cash.
  • Refund can take up to 3 months.
  • IRS is notified of checks $10,000 or more.

BAIL BOND:

    Pros:

  • Pay only 10% of bail amount to bail agent, meaning you have extra money to spend on other necessary expenses like a lawyer.
  • Allowed to pay the 10% over a period of time – low monthly payment plans.
  • If defendant fails to show in court, you are not responsible for paying the full bail amount.
  • Bail agent knows the process and will be with you the entire time to explain everything.
  • Bail agent is responsible for making sure defendant goes to court.

    Cons:

  • 10% paid is non-refundable.
  • More paperwork (though the time it takes to release the arrested person may be just as long as if a cash bail was paid).
  • Third party is involved.

Weigh the pros and cons if you’re ever arrested, or if you know someone who is. Just like having a lawyer is always very helpful, having a bail agent to help you is also very helpful.

If you decide to go the bail bond route, please contact Orange County Bail Bond Store Service at 714-648-0586 immediately.

The FBI Contacted Me And I’m Freaking Out. What Do I Do?

Orange-County-Bail-Bonds2

If the FBI contacts you, of course you’re going to be freaking out! Try to remain calm and poised. You don’t need to give them any more reason to be suspicious of you.

What you should do is get a lawyer. Let the FBI know you do not want to answer any of their questions without consulting your lawyer first or without having your lawyer present. That is your right. The FBI will not be allowed to question you any further.

You may also deny FBI if they want to search you, your belongings, and/or your property. Unless they have a warrant, they will have to concede to your request. However, we do caution that under certain circumstances, the FBI may be allowed to scan and search the small vicinity or you under probable cause.

Consultations are always FREE, so call Orange County Bail Bond Store Service now at 714-648-0586.

3 Bail Bond Store Myths, Debunked

Anaheim Bail Bond Store

There is always so much talk around the most gossipy issues, including bail bonds because they involve intriguing court cases for the public, and private matters for those involved. Plus, what you see on television shows and movies aren’t always accurate. So, here are 3 common bail bond myths, debunked!

  1. Myth #1: Bail agents must be paid in cash. You’re not expected to have this kind of money in cash. Other forms of payment include credit card and collateral.
  2. Myth #2: Bail agents can negotiate to reduce bail with the court. The arrested individual may request to have their bail reviewed, but a change by the court is very unlikely. Bail agents, however, are not allowed to approach the court to negotiate bail.
  3. Myth #3: Fees paid to a bail agent will be returned to you after court. The premium you pay the bail agent (typically 10% of the bail amount) is for them helping you. This is not refunded to you, as they are doing you a service. If you were to pay the full bail to the court by yourself, without the help of a bail agent, then you will get this money back at the end of court as long as the defendant was compliant.
