The 5 Most Common Bail Questions

The 5 Most Common Bail Questions

The 5 Most Common Bail Questions

For most people, bailing someone out of jail is a strange new experience. This is due to the fact that no one ever really plans on needing bail, so they never learn about it. Luckily, the professionals here at Bail Bonds in Fresno are more than willing to help out. They are always ready and willing to answer your questions about the bail bonds process.

In order to help you out, here are the five most common questions that our bail agents receive.

  1. How Much Does a Bail Bond Cost?
    Pricing is dependent on the amount of the bail. In California, bail bond companies charge 10% of the bail price. If your loved one’s bail is $10,000, then it will cost $1,000 to bail him out using a bail bond.
  2. How Long Does It Take For My Loved One To Be Released?
    After the initial payment has been received, your loved one can be out in as little as 2 hours. However, the time varies from county to county, depending on the current workload of the jail.
  3. What Happens If I Miss a Payment?
    If you happen to miss a payment, it is not a big deal. If you know in advance that you are going to be late on a payment, let us know. We know life can be difficult at times and things that were certain a few months ago, might have changed. If your budget has changed, we can work with you on payments and even readjust your payment plan to fit your new budget.
  4. Do You Offer Discounts?
    Yes, we can offer a 20% discount on the price of the bail bond if a co-signer is a union member, a member of the military, a member of AARP, is a homeowner, or if the client has a private attorney. With this discount, instead of paying $1,000 for the same bond, you only have to pay $800.
  5. What Is a Co-Signer?
    A co-signer is anyone who is willing to sign for your loved one’s release. The signer is promising that all the money will be paid and that their loved one will go to all of their court dates. A co-signer takes responsibility for their loved one.

It is understandable to have a lot of questions about bailing someone out of jail. After all, nobody ever plans on needing to know about bail. Luckily, if you ever need bail help, you can count on Bail Bonds in Fresno to be there for you.

No Parent Wants Their Child to Runaway

No Parent Wants Their Child to Runaway

No Parent Wants Their Child to Runaway

Any parent will admit that their relationship with their child can change on a day to day basis sometimes. There are times where everyone is getting along perfectly, and then there are times where arguments are more common than kind words. Thankfully, no matter what happens, even after the worst fights, there is still plenty of love to go around. After all, adults realize that just because people fight, doesn’t mean they don’t like each other anymore.

Sadly, this fact isn’t always clear to kids. A particularly bad fight, or other equally bad circumstances, can cause them to do something that parents wished only happened in their worst nightmares. Sometimes, when faced with problems that seem too big to be dealt with, kids will decide that running away from home is their only option. Not only is this a bad decision for their health and safety, it can do a real number on their parent or guardian as well.

Why Do Kids Run Away and How to Help Avoid It

Kids run away either to seek freedom from rules and restrictions, which is a misguided thought, or to escape from a problem that is a very big deal to them. This problem could be something like the child is afraid of being punished for a failing grade, they are mad at some rule the parent has enacted, the child feels like a failure to their parents, or something of a similar nature.In some instances, a child runs away to force a parent to gain power in an argument with a parent.

If a parent wants to prevent their child from ever feeling like running away is a good way to deal with a problem, they need to help the child develop their problem solving skills. When the child is facing a problem, ask the questions about how they plan on solving the problem, and when they solve it successfully, acknowledge that success and give them praise.

Another thing that a parent should do is help ingrain the idea that they will always love their child, no matter how bad he or she may mess up. After all, there is nothing wrong with making a mistake. In most instances, the mistake can always be corrected with a bit of hard work.

Signs of Potential Desire to Runaway

Unfortunately, there aren’t many signs that a child might be considering running away.

Some of the few signs that can be seen include:

  • The child is hoarding money.
  • The child is being very secretive.
  • Valuable items are disappearing around the house.
  • The child is abusing substances.

Some of these signs can show a child is trying to come up with funds to support themselves when they run away. The substance abuse can lead to the running away so that the child can do whatever they want, whenever they want.

When Can You Contact Law Enforcement

Many people out there believe that they have to wait 24 hours before they can contact the police about a missing child. However, that is not the case. The moment a parent realizes that their child is missing and cannot find him or her anywhere in the nearby facility, they should contact the police. Police officers take all kinds of missing person cases seriously. They will start helping a parent of a missing child right away.

Do You Get Into Trouble for Allowing Runaways to Stay in Your Home?

This depends on the situation. If a person knowingly takes in a runaway child and helps him or her stay “missing,” then the person could get into serious trouble. This is sort of like aiding and a abetting a criminal. The state of California makes it a misdemeanor offense to harbor a runaway minor. This law is meant to help parents and guardians keep their child safe.

However, if a person was unaware of the fact that a child ran away when they let the child stay at their home, then they likely wouldn’t face criminal charges. This is especially true if the person contacted the parents, guardians, or police about the child.

This Nightmare Scenario Can be Avoided

A child running away is a parent’s worst nightmare. Pretty much all parents only want what is best for their child, and sometimes that doesn’t make the child happy. This can lead to them running away, which puts their safety at risk. That is why a parent should always contact the police right away when they realize that their child is missing.

While there are not always signs that a child might be considering running away from home, it can be prevented. A parent just needs to be there for their child, and teach him how to fix their problems.

If a parent does that, and is always there for their child, their son or daughter may never feel like a problem is too big for them to handle.

Driver Dances to Avoid Road Rage

Driver Dances to Avoid Road Rage

Driver Dances to Avoid Road Rage

Californian drivers are pretty well accustomed to facing bad traffic on a regular basis. Sadly, traffic doesn’t get less annoying the more often you are in it. This is usually why so many drivers who are practically parked on a road are never in the best of moods. After all, they have places that they need to be. Going a whopping 1 mile an hour down the interstate isn’t helping them reach their destination in a timely manner.

The fact that heavy traffic can lead to feeling road rage is no secret. Every driver has experienced it at least once or twice in their life. It is not a fun experience. One Baltimore driver recently went viral with his way of remaining stress free while stuck in gridlocked construction traffic.

Another driver recorded the incident and uploaded it to their social media where it quickly went viral. While stuck in unmoving traffic on a surface street in Baltimore, one driver got out of his car to dance as he awaited his chance to move forward.

Dancing to music is a great way to help reduce stress and get exercise at the same time. While dancing in the middle of the street isn’t usually the safest thing to do, it definitely seems to work for this driver during this incident.

What to Expect at DUI Checkpoints This New Year’s Eve

What to Expect at DUI Checkpoints This New Year’s Eve

What to Expect at DUI Checkpoints This New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve is arguably one of the biggest party nights of the year. Everyone is staying up late waiting to ring the New Year in with flair. All of this partying has a tendency to lead to a lot of drinking. Unfortunately, this leads to a lot of people drinking and driving. In order to prevent accidents, many law enforcement agencies will setup DUI checkpoints.

DUI checkpoints may look intimidating, but they are nothing to worry about. After all, they are there to help keep the roads safe for everyone. So long as the person who is driving has not been drinking, they have nothing to worry about.

When a person drives up to a DUI checkpoint, they will likely be instructed to wait until an officer is available to talk to them. Once an officer is ready, they will wave the car forward.

From there, the officer will ask the driver a few questions:

  • Where are you coming from?
  • Where are you going?
  • Have you been drinking?

The officer will also ask to see driver’s license and registration.

As long as there are no signs that the driver has been drinking, or consuming marijuana, then the officer will allow the driver to continue to their destination.

If the officer suspects that the driver has consumed alcohol, then the driver will be asked to pull over to the side where another officer will conduct a field sobriety test. If the driver fails that, then they could be ticketed, fined, and will likely have to wait for someone to come pick them up.

The whole point of DUI checkpoints is to keep drunk drivers off of the road. They increase in frequency around holidays that involve a lot of partying.

That is why it shouldn’t come as a surprise if a driver finds themselves at a DUI checkpoint this New Year’s Eve.

Here at Bail Bonds in Orange County, we are able to provide our clients with a 20% discount off the price of the bail bond.

LA County Libraries Came up with a Creative Way to Handle Fines on Kid Accounts

LA County Libraries Came up with a Creative Way to Handle Fines on Kid Accounts

LA County Libraries Came up with a Creative Way to Handle Fines on Kid Accounts

In today’s modern world, computers and smartphones take up a lot of our time. For adults, this is a pretty spectacular and exciting new change. For many kids, these devices have been here for as long as they can remember. For many of these kids, they would rather play with one of their smart devices than do things that previous generations used to do for entertainment. One example of this would be reading.

In an effort to help keep kids reading, the Los Angeles County Public Library started a new program last year in order to help encourage kids to read. A while back, the library began to notice that library cardholders 21 and younger would stop coming to the library altogether if they accumulated too much debt in overdue fees. This meant that kids were turning way from books to avoid the fees, which is something the library didn’t want to do.

In order to avoid this, the library started a new program that allowed kids to easily clear their debts to the library. All the kids had to do, is read a book. For every hour that the child spends reading in the library, $5 is removed from fees on their account. When a child wants to participate in this program, they simply talk to a library staff member who will register them for the program. The librarian will sign the child in and out in order to keep track of reading times.

Since this program started a year ago, the 80 public libraries throughout LA County have reinstated over 13,000 previously blocked accounts that had acquired too many late fees. This means that over 13,000 kids have been able to continue to access all of the reading material, and other resources, that the public library provides them.

This outstanding program is a great way to help encourage kids to keep on reading.

When Can Officers Search You without a Warrant?

When Can Officers Search You without a Warrant?

When Can Officers Search You without a Warrant?

Here in the United States of America, citizens are guaranteed certain rights and protections under the Constitution. The Constitution and its amendments are where most of our rights as citizens are written. Some of them, like the freedom of speech, are pretty well known. Meanwhile there are other rights that aren’t as well known, but are as equally important. A perfect example of this would the Fourth Amendment.

The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution protects citizens from unreasonable search and seizures. This means that police officers, and other government officials, can’t just decide to go through someone’s stuff without very good reason. In order for them to perform a search, they typically need a warrant from a judge. The warrant will give the officers permission to search through whatever it lists.

While typically a warrant is required, there are special instances where a warrant may not be required.

  • The person gives their consent to be searched.
  • The person is being arrested and searched for possible weapons.
  • Inspection searches at borders.
  • The police have probable cause there is evidence in a vehicle.
  • The incriminating item is in plain view.
  • It is an emergency situation and can prevent physical harm or damage.

In these instances, an officer may not need a warrant to search a person or their property.

Thanks to this law, officers cannot search a person’s personal property, real and digital, without the person’s consent or a warrant.

The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution protects citizens and gives them privacy from law enforcement agencies.
