Holiday Travel and Staying On the Nice List

Lynwood Bail Bond Store

Travel peaks during the holiday season as everyone goes on a holiday vacation to be with loved ones. We always try to remain on our best behavior, partially because we want to stay on Santa’s Nice List, but really, it is due to the fact that we are adults now. We do not want to run into any trouble with the law, especially when we are out of our own state.

Getting arrested outside of our own state causes more of a headache for the defendant than if he or she were arrested within their state. In some instances, the defendant may have a local lawyer represent them in court while the defendant returns home, but in other cases, the defendant will be required to appear in court. This may mean that the defendant has to prolong their stay in the state, or keep making travel arrangements back and forth. That is time and money lost for the defendant.

Lynwood Bail Bond Store bails defendants out of California jails, but cannot help those who are arrested in other states, even if the arrestees are California residents. Lynwood Bail Bond Store can only provide affordable bail bonds, customized payment plans, and around-the-clock friendly customer service.

If you ever need a bail bond for yourself, or a loved one, within California, please contact Lynwood Bail Bond Store online or at 877-793-2245.

Infractions, Misdemeanors, and Felonies: Did You Know the Differences Between Them?

Lynwood Bail Bonds Store

Infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies are the three classifications of law violations. The type of crime, and the resulting punishments, differentiate the three from each other.

Infractions are the petty offenses that are punishable by fines, seldom ever jail time. The most common infractions are driving and traffic violations, like speeding and parking in a red zone.

Misdemeanors are crimes such as trespassing and harassment, and can be punishable with fines and up to a year in jail.

Felonies are serious criminal offenses whose punishments include large fines, and prison sentences. Crimes with threat and harm are felonies, as well as fraud and others of that nature.

Lawyers are really only necessary in felony cases and many misdemeanor cases. A trial by jury is allowed in these situations as well. Bail bond agents can be useful for all types of cases where the arrested individual is allowed to bail out of jail. A defendant’s eligibility for bail is up to the judge, who will make this professional decision considering the crime, the defendant’s ties to the community, and criminal history, and weigh it against the bail schedule. As you might guess, felonies will have a greater bail amount than misdemeanors.

To learn just how a bail bond can help you and your loved ones in this unfortunate time, talk to an Lynwood Bail Bond Store representative at 877-793-2245 or chat online now.
