The Cost of Keeping a Person in Jail

perris-bail-bonds-668

Can you guess how much it costs to keep a person in a California prison?

$64,000.

That’s $64,000 per person. Yes people!

This cost covers housing, meals, and caring for the prisoner’s basic needs. Although California prison populations are slowly declining while still being overcrowded, the costs aren’t going down. In fact, they’re on the incline.

California spends $1 billion each year to accommodate California jails, where people are serving short-term sentences and are awaiting their trial.

These numbers are kind of “jaw-dropping’, aren’t they? This is where some of your tax money comes into play, and it’s not a nice thought.

However, your loved one who might’ve been recently arrested doesn’t necessarily need to be sitting in jail, waiting for their trial. Instead of spending your tax dollars on their jail time, help pay for them to get out of jail with a bail bond from Perris Bail Bond Store! Perris Bail Bond Store can get you an affordable bail bond with a low monthly rate payment plan. We will not let you down!

What Is A “Bounty Hunter?”

perris-bail-bonds-564

For some reason, the “bounty hunters” only sound like they’re in the movies or on television shows. It’s how they’re depicted in pop culture that makes it difficult to understand how they are in real life.

Well, in real life, bounty hunters work with bail bond companies when a defendant fails to show up for his or her court date. When the court notifies the bail bond company that a defendant has skipped court, for whatever reason, that specific bail agent is on the line. This specific bail agent will need to pay off the full bail bond, but in an effort to avoid that loss, they will hire a bounty hunter to track the defendant down and get them back into custody.

Bounty hunters may travel across state lines to bring defendants back into court if they have fled. They rarely work with the local law enforcement, but occasionally they must, according to the law.

Perris Bail Bond Store rarely needs to use bounty hunters, but as a warning, cases have dwindled down to that. We truly hope that you, needing our bail bond services, will not betray us in this manner or take us for granted! Perris Bail Bond Store will always be on your side! Speak with us today about the entire bail bonds process and we’ll see how we may best assist you!

The First Gun Laws You Need To Know About In California

perris-bail-bonds-555

In light of recent events happening around the world, the topic of gun ownership always comes up. Some people want gun control while others want to keep the right to bear arms for protection and safety. People seem to have a heightened sense of security when they own guns. However, because of the deadly nature of these weapons, it will always cause an intense debate. California has some of the nation’s strictest gun laws, some of which were just added this year.

    Here are some things that you might not be aware of:

  • Long gun purchasers must be 18 and handgun purchases must be at least 21 years old. Purchasers may only buy a maximum of 1 handgun per month.
  • Before receiving their gun, purchasers must pass a universal background check, which will take 10 days minimum.
  • Purchasers must pass a written safety test and obtain a Firearm Safety Certificate.
  • Every gun will be micro-stamped, meaning a unique serial number will be transferred to every cartridge case every time the gun is fired. This allows crime scene investigators and police to trace bullets back to the gun owner.
  • Assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition magazines are illegal to sell or buy.
  • Guns must be sold and purchased through licensed dealers; private sales are illegal.
  • No one may carry a gun on school campuses, including those who hold concealed weapons permits.
  • If family members believe their loved one, who owns a gun, is dangerous, they can request the police and judge to confiscate the guns for a few weeks. During these few weeks, the gun owner will be evaluated and questioned to figure out the situation and threat.

These gun laws are just the tip of the iceberg; obviously, there are hundreds of other laws regarding guns, but this is what you need to know if you ever consider owning a gun.
Guns can and will get you into serious trouble, so we at Perris Bail Bond Store are here to warn and caution people for their own safety.
