Our Favorite, Wacky Laws in America


Bored at work and want some fun? Try some light reading to educate yourself with some tips for when you travel to different states across America. We have compiled some of America’s wackiest, most absurd laws that are still in effect today. They probably are not heavily enforced thanks to how ridiculous they are, but if they are enforced, you can technically be fined or arrested.

  • In Alaska, you cannot give a moose a beer. So do not bother inviting them to your house party.
  • In California, no driver-less vehicle can go faster than 60 miles per hour. Yet, a driver-less vehicle going 59 miles per hour on the road is fine, because it is totally safe.
  • In Connecticut, a pickle will achieve true pickle status only if it bounces. If it does not bounce, it cannot be called a pickle. Be ready for that 5 second rule to grab that pickle or non-pickle after its bounce!
  • In Idaho, you will get up to 14 years in prison for cannibalism – that sounds about right. However, if you had to kill and eat your friend to survive, you know, survival of the fittest, then you are off the hook.
  • In Illinois, you may not fall asleep in a cheese factory, bake shop, candy store, or ice cream shop. If you want to dream about food, do it at home.
  • In New Jersey, if you are going to commit murder, do not wear a bulletproof vest. It is illegal to wear the vest during this act, which actually also makes the fight more fair. PS: it is also illegal to commit murder, in case you did not know.
  • In Ohio, you cannot give alcohol to a fish. They are probably fine with their regular tank water anyway.
  • In South Carolina, you must be at least 18 years of age to use a pinball machine. That is when the fun begins.
  • In Virginia, you and the other person must be true lovers and be able to prove it if you want to have sex. If you cannot prove that, then you can be fined. Good luck with that, it is hard enough to prove to your significant other how true your love is.

Is your head kind of raw from all the head-scratching you just did? Ours too. Remember, you probably will not get arrested for these crimes but if you do, you cannot say we did not warn you!

If you, or someone you know, has been arrested in California for letting your car, without you in the driver seat, go 60 miles or faster or has been arrested for any other crime that makes sense, please contact Riverside County Bail Bond Store. We are here to help you or your loved one get out of jail and back home quickly!

You Can Vote While Out On Bail


American’s are getting pretty antsy now as the 2016 Presidential election draws nearer and nearer. Vote-by-mail instructions have already started going out to many, an indication that voting will happen in no time! There are certain requirements to be eligible to vote, the obvious being at least 18 years of age, actively registered to vote, and a U.S. citizen. However, there are a couple of lesser known restrictions because they do not affect everyone.

  1. If a court finds a person to be mentally incompetent, they may not vote.
  2. If a person is currently in jail or on parole at the time of the election, they may not vote. However, if they have previously been in jail, have been released, and are no longer on parole, then they automatically regain their right to vote, if they were already registered to vote.

All eligible Americans are encouraged to exercise their right to vote and this upcoming presidential election is a big one.

If you need a bail bond now, or sometime down the road, Riverside County Bail Bond Store can help get you out of jail. You will be eligible to vote while out on bail!

Riverside County Bail Bond Store can be reached 24/7 online or on the phone at 800-793-2245.

  • Avoid a DUI
  • Avoid injury
  • Avoid a fatality
  • Avoid fines
  • Avoid jail time

Drinking and Driving Is Never a Good Idea


There will never be too many warnings against drinking and driving because, even though we are constantly reminded of this message, people do it anyway. They think they are good at driving, even while under the influence. That they will not get into an accident, or they won’t be pulled over. People continue to drive after having drinks.

However, people do get into accidents and get pulled over. These people too thought it would not happen to them. Some end up in the hospital, some in jail, and the worst cases – a deathbed. Imagine what that person’s family and friends go through. Imagine if it was you.

There are so many alternatives to driving – a taxi, ‘Uber’, ‘Lyft’, the bus, a sober designated driver. Call someone to pick you up. You can even call the cops to drive you home. If you are hammered, definitely do not drive. If you had one drink, think twice about getting behind the wheel. This is a responsibility you need to take for yourself and for others, because getting behind the wheel while drunk puts others at risk too. On top of that, do not let your friends and family members drive home drunk either.

Do you want to end up in jail? Do you want to have this mark on your record? Do you want to have to pay to get out of jail? Definitely not.

Here at Riverside County Bail Bond Store, we are all too familiar with drunk drivers – we bail them out of jail. We dislike the situation, but we will not hesitate to get them out of jail, and we will not hesitate to do the same for you.

What Is a Search Warrant, and When Is It Needed


If the police, while investigating a criminal matter, need to look through your property and belongings, they will often need a search warrant, unless you freely grant them permission to search. To get a search warrant, they will approach a judge and explain why a search warrant is necessary, e.g., reasonable suspicion that you have knowledge of or are directly involved with a crime. If the judge signs off, the police will hand the search warrant to you, and you must step aside from there. The police are free to search areas and seize items listed in the search warrant.

    There are a few situations where officers will not need a search warrant:

  • As mentioned, if you allow them to search
  • If they see something incriminating that is in plain view
  • When they search you after arresting you
  • When they suspect something of you and stop and quickly search you

Know your rights. Remember, you can refuse the police officers’ request to search if they ask without having a warrant; they will need to come back with a warrant.

If you have been arrested for a crime, Riverside County Bail Bond Store can help bail you out of jail. We offer low monthly rate payment plans for our bail bonds and we are capable of working with people in all kinds of financial situations.

Cyberbullying, And How It Relates To Riverside County Bail Bond Store


Cyberbullying (intentionally posting personal information of and/ or harassing another person by electronic communication like texts, emails, and social media with the intent of causing fear) seems like a rather harmless crime, but in California, it’s taken very seriously. Cyberbullying has led victims to harm themselves, commit suicide, or act out and even harm others.

Subject to a fine of up to $1,000, and a jail sentence of up to 1 year, cyberbullying is a misdemeanor conviction. It happens most among young people but it can and does happen among adults too.

School educators and administrators are trained to look out for signs of cyberbullying. There is a procedure they must follow when a cyberbullying case is identified and reported.

As mentioned, bullying cases can lead to more serious crimes, and that’s when Riverside County Bail Bond Store might be of help to you. In case you or someone you care about is arrested, Riverside County Bail Bond Store will provide a low-cost bail bond to get you or them out of jail temporarily until the trial. Bailing out of jail is ideal, compared to having to stay in jail for an unknown period of time.

Expunging Vs. Sealing A Criminal Record


Having a criminal record can be haunting, especially for a person who is generally good and honest. We know that employers and banks are able to access arrest and conviction records during criminal background checks. Is it possible to have any information on a criminal record sealed, so that in the future, it won’t show up during a criminal background check? After all, it was years ago, a minor issue, and that person has been on very good behavior.

Well, it is possible, and there are two ways for you to do this; expunging or sealing the record:

  1. Sealing a record means that it can no longer be accessed by normal means. So employers, for example, who are running a background check on you, will not see any records that have been sealed. The records still exist, but they require a court order in order for them to be seen again.
  2. Expunging a record is making it as if the offense never happened. The record is removed or destroyed so even by a court order, the record will not be revealed.

Obviously, expunging a record is more preferable to sealing it if possible, but in both situations, they are both beneficial to the individual. Of course, neither of this occurs until much later than the actual conviction at the end of trial.

If you need a bail bond to get you out of jail before and during trial, then by all means, contact Riverside County Bail Bond Store immediately!

Believe It Or Not: The Most Expensive Bail In U.S. History


If you’re curious to learn just how expensive bail can be, check out some of these real cases where bail has been set among some of the most expensive in United States history, as well as being some of the most high-profile and media-covered cases:

  1. O.J. Simpson
  2. O.J. Simpson is most famously known as being found ‘not guilty’ in murdering his wife and her friend in the 1990s. However, when he was arrested in the 2000’s for robbing a hotel casino, his bail was originally set at $125 thousand then it was raised to $250 thousand after he violated his bail terms and conditions. Simpson bailed out using a bail bond, which probably only cost him 10-15% of his bail price.

  3. Bernie Madoff
  4. Accused of fraud and the $50 billion Ponzi scheme, Madoff was granted $10 million bail, but unable to gather 4 bail bond co-signers, his bail conditions were modified to house arrest.

  5. Kening Ma
  6. Ma was held on $100 million bail for selling all-terrain vehicles without a smog certificate.
