Factors To Determining Bail

los angeles 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 Los Angeles 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!

Why You Need To Know About This Gun Law, Even If You Don’t Own A Gun

los angeles bail bonds

Owning a gun is serious business and requires a serious process. In California, gun laws are some of the most restrictive across the United States. And new laws are being passed regularly in an effort to curb violence and mishandling of guns. This year, there were a few pretty “big” gun laws that were passed, including one that is good for all people, not just gun-owners and sellers, to know.

If you have a family member who owns a gun, and you think they might commit a crime with it, you can alert the police, who will confiscate that person’s guns for 3 weeks. During these 3 weeks, the individual will be questioned and the concerns will be investigated.

This gun confiscation law is new and as you can see, pretty powerful if people know about it and use it before it’s too late.

We hope it won’t be too late to use it, but if it is too late to have the police confiscate the guns and investigate, and instead the police are cuffing your loved one and arresting, then it’s not too late for you to do the next step in trying to help: getting a bail bond from Los Angeles Bail Bond Store.

Major Bail Bond Benefits

los angeles bail bonds

When we think of posting bail, we generally think of the negatives: paying a lot of money to someone else because you or your loved one did something wrong and got caught for it. But there are a number of really incredible and often overlooked benefits to paying for a bail bond, aside from getting a person out of jail.

  • Confidentiality – bail bond agents work in confidentiality so the info is only for the need-to-know.
  • Maintain employment and income – the defendant can return to work and continue to receive income.
  • Attend family gatherings and obligations – the defendant won’t miss out on important family parties and obligations like birthdays, soccer games, and ballet recitals. The same goes for friends.
  • Prepare for trial – this can be done from inside jail, but it’s so much easier when the defendant is out of jail. Plus, the defendant and the lawyer can build a better case and defense.

Plus, if you post bail with a bail bond, instead of cash bail, you’ll save way more money because bail bonds cost only 10% of the full bail amount for cash bail. And this 10% is spread out over a payment plan, unlike cash bail that is paid all at once, up-front, before the defendant is released. And likely in relation then, bail bonds will get a defendant out of jail faster than cash bail since the money for bail bonds isn’t immediately required up-front.

Don’t hesitate – go the bail bond route! Get Los Angeles Bail Bond Store on your side to help you (and consultations are free). Chat with a rep online or call 877-793-2245.

What Cosigners And Defendants Need To Know

los angeles 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. Off the records, you may also lose their trust and damage your relationship with them.
  • If the cosigner withdraws his or her name from your bail bond at any time, you will be taken back into custody until you can get another cosigner, if allowed.
  • Los Angeles Bail Bond Store is here for both parties on the matter. Yes, overall we protect the people’s right to bail out of jail. But we also protect the rights of all our cosigners too. Learn more about bail bonds and the roles of cosigners by chatting with us online or calling us at 877-793-2245.
