The Countdown to EDC… And Jail

victorville-bail-bonds-944

The ever-popular Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) music festival is a few weeks away and once again, it will be held in Las Vegas. The event draws hundreds of thousands of attendees each year. It has been held in Las Vegas over the past few years after moving from Los Angeles; the last time it was held in Los Angeles, an underage teen girl died of a drug overdose.

Her death was the worst, but not the only issue. Multiple people were arrested for drugs and alcohol, and that is not the only year, nor the only event where this happens. Music festivals like EDC seem to be multiplying every year and at every event, the police make multiple arrests. At a handful of events, someone will die from a drug overdose.

With EDC 2016 approaching, we hope that if you plan to attend, that you make good decisions for yourself and your friends. If you, or one of your friends, are arrested at EDC, then you face a more difficult bail and jail process because you are in Nevada, not California. Getting arrested out of state is always a little bit more of a headache.

For anytime you need bail bond assistance within California, Victorville Bail Bond Store will be there for you. Call us 800-793-2245, or you can chat with one of our team members online for immediate assistance.

Weighing Pros And Cons Of Cash Vs. Bail Bonds

victorville-bail-bonds-744

When a person is granted bail, they have two ways of paying for it: a cash bond or a bail bond. Here, we weigh both concepts:

    Cash Bond

  • Pay whole bail amount up-front; entire amount must be paid before defendant can be released.
  • There is no third party to deal with.
  • There is less paperwork to take care of this way.
  • Bail is 100% refundable, as long as defendant complies with release terms and goes to court. The refund comes in check form but often takes a few months to get back.
  • If the defendant does not show up in court, you lose your money, and perhaps your relationship and trust with the defendant from there on out. The defendant will be taken back into custody.
  • Bail Bond

  • Pay only 10% of the full bail amount to the bail bond company (third party), but it is not refundable.
  • The 10% is paid over a payment plan that extends beyond the time of the defendant’s release.
  • Cash, credit, debit, and checks are acceptable forms of payment.
  • Requires collateral and a co-signer who can vouch for the defendant and make sure they meet court dates. If the defendant skips court, the defendant will be taken back into custody, collateral may be taken, and the full bail price may need to be paid by the co-signer.
  • Co-signer may take their name off the bail bond at any time they wish if they lose trust in the defendant.
  • A professional bail agent will be with you through the whole process so you know exactly what is happening.

Deciding between the two really comes down to what you can afford. Obviously, you want to get your loved one out as soon as possible, but at the same time, you need to have the money. Bail bonds are not reserved solely for those in the lower income bracket; bail bonds are available to anyone (even filthy rich celebrities use bail bonds). Victorville Bail Bond Store will help anyone who needs a bail bond and they will work with you to customize the payment plan so it is as comfortable for you as possible.

Arrest Situations For Immigrants

victorville-bail-bonds-644

If you know someone who is an immigrant to the United States and has just been arrested, you should know that they are facing a tough situation. However, they are not completely defeated.

Here’s what you should know:

  1. They have the right to a lawyer, and that lawyer does not have to be government-provided council. They have a right to have a private attorney represent them, and if you are willing, you can help them find a good private lawyer.
  2. They can inform their consulate of their arrest, so that consulate is aware of the situation and can help mediate.
  3. They have the right to remain silent. They should not discuss their immigration status unless their lawyer is present.
  4. They may have the right to post bail with an immigration bail bond, which you can get more information about by contacting Victorville Bail Bond Store today!

Ask For Help Before It’s Too Late

victorville-bail-bonds-534

Asking for help might be intimidating and embarrassing, especially for young adults. Young adults want to prove they can handle everything they get involved in. They want to show their independence. However, no young adult is equipped to handle a very big problem, such as a legal problem, especially, on their own with limited resources.

Closest friends and family are some of the best people to offer help and support. They know you best and they have a close relationship with you. There is trust between the two of you. But, sometimes this existing, personal relationship is at risk if a loved one is there to help. In this case, professionals like licensed therapists and counselors are the best people to ask for help from. These people are strangers so there is no deep relationship and thus no worry of straining a relationship.

The best thing to do is get help immediately before the situation gets worse. That’s a given. But if the situation gets to the point of an arrest, it’s not the end of the world. Even at this point, it’s a very good idea to get some people involved who can support you through this “rebuilding” time of your life. Get parents, best friends, lawyers and a bail bond agent. This team is behind you.

As far as bail bonds go, you can get a bail agent from Victorville Bail Bond Store. Your bail agent will guide you through your entire bail bonds process, making it as easy and stress-free as possible for you.

Victorville Bail Bond Store is available 24 hours a day; 7 days a week, so please, do not hesitate to give us a call today!

What Happens To Voting Rights If You Are In Jail

victorville-bail-bonds-494

The presidential election is starting to take shape and voting happens in September. Anyone 18 years of age or older, is able to vote, as we all are aware. Here’s a little Q&A excerpt to provide you with some information that you might not be aware of:

  • What if you are in custody?
  • What if you’re serving a sentence in prison?
  • What if you have a criminal history?
  • Can you still vote?
  • Below are some projected answers to these questions to spark your awareness just a bit:

  • Even if you’ve been convicted of a misdemeanor, you may still vote.
  • If you are a convicted felon and are currently serving your sentence in prison, or are on parole, you are not allowed to vote.
  • As soon as you are released from prison and no longer need to follow up with your parole officer, your voting rights are restored.
  • If you are in custody or jail, you may vote, as long as you are accused of a misdemeanor (not a felony).

These voting rights and restrictions are not the same in every state. Some will be the same, while others may differ.

If you need to bail out of jail, Victorville Bail Bond Store can help you do that (again, this is for those who are in jail only and have yet to be convicted). Learn how Victorville Bail Bond Store can help you bail out of jail affordably and quickly!

Bail Is An Option With Tax Money

victorville-bail-bonds-store-469

Bail is ridiculously expensive, period. Most people won’t easily have enough money to post bail on their own. Even getting extra money back from the IRS during tax season won’t be enough money to bail out of jail. However, that extra tax return money might be enough to afford a bail bond from Victorville Bail Bond Store; a bail bond is an alternative method to bailing out of jail, and they only cost 10-15% of the full bail amount.

The cost of bail bonds will be paid on a payment plan, meaning the defendant will be released from jail before the entire 10-15% is paid off. But the main catch that levels this against paying the full bail price directly with the court is that the 10-15% paid to the bail bond company is not refundable at the end of the case, whereas 100% of the bail that is paid directly to court (without the bail bond company as the middle man) is. Both options of bailing out of jail are legal and legitimate – it’s merely a situation matter as to which method you choose to go with.

Of course there’s more to learn about bail and bail bonds, and you can do that by chatting with a Victorville Bail Bond Store bail agent online where we can provide you with plenty of information.

You can also call us at 800-793-2245 to speak directly with a willing and capable bail bonds agent.

How Paying For Bail Can Affect Your Credit Score

victorville-bail-bonds-424

Paying for bail may impact your credit score so this is something you may want to pay attention to. Because most people cannot afford to pay for bail on their own, they will seek a bail bondsman from a bail bond company such as Victorville Bail Bond Store in California. By working with a bail agent, they will pay less money over a longer period of time. However, what they pay is nonrefundable (think of it as a fee to pay for hiring a bail agent).

Bail bonds can still be quite high to pay for in cash, so most people will charge it to their credit card. If the charge is enough to significantly raise your balance, your credit score may fluctuate. It may also change if you are unable to pay off the credit card immediately. As with any credit card fee, it’s always ideal, as far as your credit score is concerned, for you to pay off the entire balance/debt on time, rather than paying just a portion of the bill and leaving an outstanding balance.

Applying for and taking out a loan for the bail bond may also change your credit score.
If you fail to make a bail bond payment on time, the debt may go to collections, thereby negatively impacting your credit.

The most secure way, financially for you, to pay for a bail bond is to pay with cash or by check if you are comfortable withdrawing and transporting that amount of money. However, please consult with your Victorville Bail Bond Store agent about credit and debit payments. They’ll be able to discuss the best practices for bail payments that are the most cost-friendly for you. They will always have your best interests at the forefront!

The Rights Of Arrested Individuals

victorville-bail-bonds-379

Just because someone commits a crime, gets caught, and gets arrested doesn’t mean they lose all their rights and become defenseless. Arrested individuals earn some rights to protect themselves during this time, especially when they are most vulnerable to the police.

    Two of the greatest rights an arrested individual has are:

  • The right to remain silent
  • The right to an attorney

These rights are known as the Miranda Rights. It empowers the arrested individual to decline to answer any police questions. Anything they say to the police can be used against them in court, including any statement that turns out to be a false confession. Some people are so nervous and intimidated and just want the police to stop pressuring them so they will falsely admit to guilt, when they truly didn’t “do it.” The suspect can say they do not want to answer any more questions and with that statement, the police must stop questioning.

This brings us to part two of the Miranda Rights; the right to an attorney. Whether one hires a private lawyer or accesses a public defender, a defendant has the right to an attorney to represent them and help them fight their case. Whether the attorney is one for hire or is court appointed, it is that attorney’s duty to be present at all subsequent questioning, in addition to safe-guarding their client and each and every right they are entitled, under the laws in which they practice.

Another right that many, but not all, arrested individuals will be granted is the right to bail. Those who are given the right to bail are encouraged to use this right and bail out of jail. They can do so with the help of a bail bond agent, who will make the process as easy and as affordable as possible, knowing that a bail bond is not easy to pay.

To learn more about bail and bail bonds, contact a Victorville Bail Bond Store bail agent or representative today, and you will have all of your questions and concerns answered immediately. We will draw up an affordable bail bond payment plan for your review and assessment.

Let Victorville Bail Bond Store help you – we absolutely will not let you down!
