Don’t Spend the Summer in Jail

Don’t Spend the Summer in Jail

No one wants to spend their summer in jail.

Considering how long it takes cases to make their way through the California court system, if you’re arrested in June, it’s highly unlikely that your case will be resolved before summer ends. That means that if you get arrested this summer, there are really only two ways you can avoid spending the rest of the summer months in jail.

The first way to avoid spending your entire summer in jail is pleading guilty to the charges and hoping the sentencing doesn’t involve jail time. This isn’t the perfect solution. First, you’re denying yourself the opportunity to possibly plead down both the charges and the sentencing. Second, you aren’t giving yourself enough time to explore all of your options and make the best possible decision. Third, a conviction will go on your permanent record, something you don’t want if you’re innocent of the charges.

The second way you can avoid spending the entire summer in jail is by contacting Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles and discussing bail options. In most cases, this is the perfect solution. Being released on a bail bond means you’re free to hang with your family, earn a living, and to easily plan your defense.

Do You Know What Bail Is?

What Is Bail?

Bail is a subject that most people have heard of but don’t know a whole lot about. This is due to the fact most people have never dealt with bail before. As such, they tend to have a lot of questions. For instance, what exactly is bail, why does it exist, and why is it so expensive?

Bail is the concept of allowing someone to get out of jail during their trial period by paying a set amount of money. This concept originated in England in the 13th century. Back then local sheriffs would release arrested individuals from jail for a price. This was done to keep jails from becoming overcrowded as the sheriff awaited the arrival of the local judge. Back then, judges would often cover multiple towns and cities, meaning it could take months for a person’s day in court to arrive.

The idea behind bail was to reduce overcrowding while still ensuring the person showed up for court. This is why bail costs money. If the sheriff’s just let people go, they wouldn’t show up for court. However, if they charged a fee for release, and then returned after the person showed for court, people were more likely to come back.

Part of the trick with bail is finding the right price. If it is too high, no one can afford it and the jail remains crowded. If the price is too low, people won’t mind paying the money and never getting it back. Bail needs to land in-between those two amounts for it to be effective.

If someone you know was recently arrested and you want to bail him or her out of jail, contact Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles. We provide our clients with bail bonds that only cost 10% of the bail that they are for. This helps bring the cost of bailing someone out of jail to acceptable levels, plus it allows you to pay for the bail with a payment plan.

Some of the other benefits that we provide for our clients include:

• 24/7 Bail bond service
• 20% Discount
• Phone approvals

What is a Bail Agreement?

What is a Bail Agreement?

Most of us also know that a bail bond agency, like Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles, is a business that helps you cover the cost of your bail. In most situations, that’s is where our knowledge ends.

Very few people understand that before we can help bail you out of jail you’ll have to sign a bail agreement.

If you’re wondering what a bail agreement is, you’re not alone. It is seldom explained properly.

The bail agreement is a surprisingly simple contact that serves as a binding legal document between you, the Indemnitor, and us, the bail bond agency that wants to help you reunite with your loved ones.

The agreement is very clear. Every single aspect of our relationship is carefully spelled out. The bail agreement discusses the terms of your bail, serves as an agreement that you’ll attend all of your mandatory court dates and lays out the bail payment plan we agree on. 

We feel that it’s important that you understand you don’t have to sign the bail agreement right away. Take as much time as you need to review the information and decide if we’re your best option. We don’t want you to do anything you’ll regret.

Which Bail Bonds Business Should you Choose!

Which Bail Bonds Business Should you Choose!

If you need a bail bond, you want to quell your first instinct of going with the first company you contact. It’s possible that you’ll connect with a truly outstanding family-owned bail bonds business that offers everything from zero interest bail to a reasonable payment plan. It’s also possible you’ll get scammed by a company that doesn’t have your best interests at heart or who doesn’t fully understand the bail bonds process.

When you’re choosing a reputable bail bonds company, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.

The Company Should be Treasure Trove of Information

No bail bonds company should expect you to know everything. They should have a phone or online system that allows you to connect with a representative who not only answers all of your questions but also explains how the process works and explains the different payment services they provide. The person you speak to should be patient, kind, and not try to force you to sign a contract until you’re convinced you’re making the right decision.

No reputable bail bonds agency will ever tell you that you have to act quickly. This isn’t use it or lose it business deal. You are free to take your time and consider all your options.

Good Bails Bonds Companies are Discrete

You’ve been arrested. You need help coming up with bail money. You don’t need this information spread all over the state. Good bail bonds businesses, the kind you want to work with, always promise discretion.

They Have Been Positively Reviewed

You should hold the bail bonds company you’re considering to the same standards you would any other type of business. Make sure they’re properly bonded and licensed. Check out reviews and customer testimonials. There’s nothing wrong with taking a little time to dig into the business’s background. If you find something that concerns you, ask the bail bonds expert about the problem during the consultation.

Customer Service is Important

Somehow, bail bonds companies have gotten a reputation for being operated by rude people who are only interested in making money. That’s not the case at all. Customer service is just as important to a bail bonds business as it is to any other business. If you contact a bail bonds business and you get the impression that they’re not really that interested in you or if you’re treated badly, hang up the phone and call another bail bonds agency.

Do you need bail? Contact Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles. We’re a family-owned bail bonds business that has been serving the area for several decades. Our top-rated services include:

• 24/7 Bail bond service
20% Discount

Drinking can Lead to Needing Bail

Drinking can Lead to Needing Bail

Drinking with friends is always fun. Grabbing a beer or margarita here and there seems like a great way to keep the party going. What kills a party buzz is driving while intoxicated. It’s all fun and games up until someone decides to makes the irresponsible decision to get behind a wheel.

Say you went out with friends the other night, and you thought someone else was going to be the designated driver. It turns out that it was your turn to be the DD, and now you have to drive everyone home after a few drinks. Against your better judgment you say you feel fine and decide to drive everyone home. After all, out of all of your friends, you’re the only one that can actually walk in a semi straight line.

By some miracle you’ve managed to drop all your friends off, and you didn’t wreck the car. Now your last stop will be your own house. While driving back home you get sleepy, and your driving skills are really slipping up. Luckily a cop sees you swerving and pulls you over. Even if your intentions were good and you didn’t hurt anyone, you still were over the legal limit. The officer, doing their job issues you a DUI. Now what?

You call the people you know you can depend on. Maybe a family member or maybe you call us, Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles, because we are always there when you need us.

Once you call us, you will immediately be in contact with one of trained bail agents who are available 24/7. The bail agent will help make this situation go as smoothly as possible.

On top of that, you can go to jail for at least six months. Nobody has time for that.

The bail agent will take your information, and get an affordable payment setup for you. In no time at all, your agent will have you out of jail and back home, safe and sound.

3 Things Parents Should Consider Before Posting Bail for Adult Children

3 Things Parents Should Consider Before Posting Bail for Adult Children

No parent wants to learn that their adult child has been arrested. Even though your child is an adult, it’s natural to want to do whatever it takes to help them out. That includes paying your adult child’s bail. Before you withdraw your life savings and rush to the jail there are a few things you need to consider before posting bail for your adult child.

Can you Afford to Post your Adult Child’s Bail?

Your child should learn how much bail they’ll need shortly after they’ve been arrested. Once you know the amount, it’s time to make an honest assessment of your financial situation. As much as you want to help your adult child, doing so shouldn’t put you in a position where you are no longer able to pay your mortgage or buy groceries for yourself.

If you’re afraid that posting your adult child’s bail will put you in a financial bind, you should contact local California bail bonds businesses for a free bail bonds consultation.

How Quickly Can You Reach Your Child?

The first thing you should ask your newly arrested child is if they are okay. The second thing to learn is where they’re located. If they’ve been arrested in your home city/county, reaching your adult child is easy but things get more complicated if you are currently located in Maryland and they were arrested in California.

If you’re living in a different state, you have two choices. First, you can find someone to act as an intermediary and have them post the bail for you. The person must be trustworthy enough that you’re confident they’ll use the money you wire them to post your adult child’s bail and not simply pocket the money and disappear. In most cases, you’re better off using a bail bondsman who offers low-interest bond instead of a family friend/relation.

If you don’t have someone in the area you can trust, you’ll have to travel to the city/county where your adult child is incarcerated. The travel expenses will have to be considered when you’re trying to figure out if you can afford to post your adult child’s bail.

Can You Trust Your Child to Make Their Court Date?

Posting bail for an adult child requires trust, particularly if you don’t live in the area. You must be confident that they will attend every single one of their court dates. Failing to appear to court will only make your adult child’s situation worse.

Failing to appear in court, which is also called bail jumping, has some serious consequences in California. The original charges don’t go away simply because your child skipped their court date. The bail you posted for your adult child will be forfeited. In many cases, additional charges are filed against your adult child, increasing the chances of them spending time in jail.

If you used personal assets, such as a car or your house as collateral for the bail you could lose them forever.

If you’re worried your adult child will jump bail, it’s in both yours and your child’s best interest to refuse to bail them out.

Bailing Out vs. Staying In Jail

Bailing Out vs. Staying In Jail

One of the decisions you have to make after you’ve been arrested is whether you want to be bailed out or stay in jail. There are pros and cons to both choices.

The Benefits of Bailing Out of Jail

The biggest benefit connected to getting bailed out of jail is that it enables you to go about your life while the court system to handle your case. The judicial system is incredibly slow. If you aren’t bailed out, you could spend months in a jail cell, waiting for the next step of the system to begin. Getting bailed out allows you to spend that time meeting with your lawyers, continuing to work and earn a living, and spending time with your family. You can sleep in your own bed, eat your own food, and continue to enjoy your life.

The Benefits of Staying in Jail

There actually are some benefits to staying in jail. The biggest is that if you plead or are found guilty, the judge often deducts the time you spent in the county jail off your sentence. This is called time served and significantly reduces the amount of time you spend in prison.

Things to Consider Before Getting Bailed Out

In most cases, getting bailed out of jail means you can continue living your life as you see fit, but there are some exceptions. Depending on the charges filed against you and your history the judge may place some serious restrictions on you. These restrictions can include limiting how far you’re allowed to wander from your house, the times of the day you are allowed to leave home, and who you associate with. If you’re caught breaking the law, you’ll be in violation of your bail agreement and sent back to jail.

It’s extremely important that you fully understand the conditions of your bail before you leave the county jail. The smallest misstep or infraction can land you in serious trouble.

COVID-19 and Bail Bonds

COVID-19 and Bail Bonds

The pandemic has hit everyone hard. Money is tight. Emotions are high. No one is entirely certain what their legal rights actually are. There is no getting around the fact that this has changed the judicial process.

COVID-19 has made the idea of sitting in jail while you work your way through the incredibly slow legal process even less desirable than it was before the pandemic. Now, staying in jail while waiting for your trial to take place not only means potentially losing your job and being unable to care for your family, but it also increases the likelihood of your contracting the virus. A recent batch of tests revealed that in a single Ohio prison, 80% of the inmates have contracted COVID-19.

It doesn’t matter how careful corrections officers are, the close quarters’ cellmates have to endure makes it nearly impossible to keep the environment free of the coronavirus. Each time someone is arrested, there is a chance they’re introducing the virus into the environment. Paying bail and getting released is the best way you can continue to social distance and remain healthy.

Understanding the importance of getting released from jail has triggered an interest grassroots movement in Greene County, Al. A group of concerned citizens have banned together and worked hard to raise money that is used to help cover the bail of individuals who have been charged with a crime. As a direct result of their efforts, the group has managed to get two people released on bail.
