The Basics Of Bail

The Basics Of Bail

The Basics Of Bail

Bail is a concept that many people know about, but are pretty unfamiliar with. Everyone has seen some TV or movie character post bail at least once in their life. However, bail isn’t always portrayed accurately on the silver screen. This makes it so most people don’t know what to expect when they find themselves needing to bail a friend or family member out of jail.

For those who may not know, bail is the amount of money that a court requires to be paid for a person to be released from jail while they await their trial. The amount of the bail varies from case to case and is largely dependent on the crime that the person has been accused of. Once this amount has been paid, the person will be released from custody and is expected to show up for their court case.

The biggest problem that people have with bail is the cost. Even the cheapest bail amounts are several thousand dollars. Most people don’t have that kind of money to spare. This is where bail bonds come in to play. Here in California, bail bonds only cost 10% of the bail that they are for. If someone’s bail is set at $20,000, then their bail bond will only cost $2,000.

Getting a bail bond does the same thing as paying for the bail. However, instead of paying the jail directly, a person is paying someone else to pay for the bail for them. Aside from being cheaper than posting the bail on your own, when you come to David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Porterville, you get the guidance of a professional bail agent.

Who Can Be A Co-Signer?

Who Can Be A Co-Signer?

Who Can Be A Co-Signer?

When someone that you care about is in trouble, you aren’t worried about how you are related to them. All you care about is helping that person. This is definitely the case when it comes to bail. You just want to help someone out, and when it comes to bail, that is all that matters.

Some people mistakenly believe that you have to be related to someone to post their bail. However, that is not the case. The only requirements for bailing someone out of jail are being California residents and knowing enough about the person to fill out the paperwork. Primarily, this means knowing the person’s name, date of birth, and the county where he or she was arrested.

When a person agrees to help bail someone out of jail and signs the contract for the bail bond, they become a co-signer. That means they become responsible for making sure payments are made on time and that their loved one behaves while out on bail. There can be multiple co-signers on a bail bond, which can help make things easier for each signer. Having multiple signers is good because if one qualifies for a discount, they earn it for everyone.

The best co-signers are the ones who are financially stable. They have steady, well-paying jobs and have had them for a while. Co-signers like this will get better deals than other signers; however, this does not mean that you have to have a perfect financial history to be a co-signer for a bail bond. Anyone can be a co-signer.

What Is Criminal Conspiracy?

What Is Criminal Conspiracy?

What Is Criminal Conspiracy?

Everyone knows that there are certain actions out there that they can do that will be considered a crime. A person can’t take someone else’s car, break into a house or create fake money without getting into trouble with the law. However, there are some crimes out there that people aren’t aware of, but they are still just as illegal.

Something that many people may not be aware of is that it is actually illegal just to plan to commit a crime. Even if the crime is never committed, a person can get into trouble for conspiring to commit the crime in the first place.

What Is Penal Code 182?

Here in California, this crime is defined under Penal Code 182 as two or more people agreeing to commit a crime and one of those persons committing an act to further the crime. What this means is that if two people talk about robbing a store and then one of them buys ski masks to conceal their identities while robbing the store, they are guilty of criminal conspiracy.

This crime is interesting because it does not require the people to actually commit the crime to be considered guilty. In the above example, the people are guilty of criminal conspiracy regardless of whether or not they actually rob the store. Even if they thought better of the idea and decided not to rob the store, they still actively conspired to do so.

It is important to note that a person cannot be guilty of this crime if they never actually intended to commit the crime. If they were just joking around, they are not guilty of criminal conspiracy.

The Penalties For Criminal Conspiracy

Criminal conspiracy is what is known as a wobbler offense here in California. This means that it can either be charged as a misdemeanor or as a felony. The penalties that a person faces for committing this crime are dependent on what crime the person conspired to commit. If a person is conspiring to murder someone, then they will face the same penalties as if they had committed the murder.

Basically, if a person conspires to commit a felony, they will face felony charges.

However, the same doesn’t hold true for when a person conspires to commit a misdemeanor. If a person conspires to commit a misdemeanor, they could face either felony or misdemeanor charges. It all depends on the facts of the case.

In addition to facing the actual penalties for conspiring to commit a crime, anyone accused of criminal conspiracy can face charges for the conspiracy and for the actual act if they go through with it. This can drastically increase the jail time and fines that a person will face.

The Difference Between A Joke And The Real Deal

Sometimes people joke around about committing crimes, but never intend to actually commit those crimes. Everyone has a good laugh and then moves on with their lives. In these instances, no one is guilty of criminal conspiracy because they never actually intended to commit the crime.

When people are serious about wanting to commit a crime and begin planning it, going so far as to begin prepping for said crime, then they are guilty of criminal conspiracy. That is when they can get into real trouble with the law.

 

Thieves Are Stealing Parts Off Of Cars

Thieves Are Stealing Parts Off Of Cars

Thieves Are Stealing Parts Off Of Cars

Cars that remained parked for long periods of time, which is pretty common at the moment, offer plenty of opportunities for crooks because they are always looking for easy targets. However, car theft isn’t the only thing to worry about. Some crooks prefer to just take parts off of idle vehicles. These crimes are less noticeable, giving the thief plenty of time to get away and perform the same crime again on another vehicle.

California is seeing a rise in crime, particularly thefts of a vehicle part called catalytic converter. This part helps a vehicle’s exhaust system reduce the amount of harmful emissions the engine creates. It does that by causing chemical reactions between the emissions and certain precious metals such as platinum and palladium. These metals are very valuable, and thieves know that.

Theft In California And Its Penalties

The crime of theft in California can be broken into two categories: Grand theft and petty theft. The difference between these two is the value of what was stolen.

Grand theft occurs when a person steals something valued at over $950 or a bunch of items whose combined value is over that amount. Petty theft is pretty much the same, except the value of the stolen goods is less than $950.

This begs the question, what is a person who stole a catalytic converter guilty of, Petty theft or grand theft?

The cost of a catalytic converter can fluctuate greatly between vehicles. The cost of this part can range anywhere from $100 to $2,500. Due to California’s strict emission guidelines, cars in the state have to have more advanced catalytic converters installed, which translates to they cost a whole lot more here than they would in most other states.

This means that a person could potentially face charges of grand theft after stealing only one catalytic converter. They could also just face petty theft charges. The more times the person commits the crime, the worse their consequences will be.

Petty theft is a misdemeanor crime in California. The penalties for committing petty theft are:

  • Up to 6 months in county jail.
  • A max fine of $1,000.

Grand theft is a wobbler crime in California, meaning that it can either be charged as a misdemeanor or as a felony depending on the facts of the cases. As a misdemeanor, the penalties for grand theft are:

  • Up to 1 year in county jail.
  • A max fine of $1,000.

As a felony, the penalties increase to:

  • 16 months, 2 years or 3 years in county jail.
  • A max fine of $10,000.
  • Felony probation.

How To Tell If The Catalytic Converter Was Stolen

Noticing that the catalytic converter on a vehicle has been stolen will be a lot easier than people realize. They might not see anything different as they approach their vehicle, but once they start it, they will hear the difference.

The catalytic converter is a part of a vehicle’s exhaust and muffler system. This system removes the engine exhaust from the vehicle and helps muffle the sound of the engine while it is running. Taking out the catalytic converter puts a hole into this system, which means the car will be much louder while it is running.

In addition, most new cars have electric sensors in the catalytic converter. The vehicle’s computer system will detect that it is not getting any information from those sensors and activate the check engine light. These missing sensors will also affect how well the engine runs since they help it run more efficiently. This means that the car will run, but it won’t be as smooth as it normally is.

How To Keep Your Car Safe

Thieves are always looking for easy targets. They want to find taller vehicles, ones with a lot of room underneath them, which makes accessing the catalytic converter easier. They also want to find vehicles that have been sitting unattended for long periods of time, such as vehicles left at a car park.

The best ways for a person to keep their car safe include always parking in well-lit areas close to buildings. This way, more people will be looking at the car making it a less-than-ideal target for thieves. A person should always try to park their car in their garage and keep the garage door shut, so no one can just waltz right on in.

Some more advanced precautions include getting the catalytic converter welded to the frame of the vehicle thereby making it harder to steal. Also, try engraving the vehicle identification number (VIN) onto the catalytic converter so that it can be identified if stolen.

Sadly, just because a part is attached to a vehicle doesn’t mean that it is safe from theft. There are plenty of thieves out there who are more than willing to unbolt or even cut a part off of an unattended vehicle. If people follow the above tips, they should be able to avoid getting into any trouble.

 

What Are Protester’s Rights?

What Are Protester’s Rights?

What Are Protester’s Rights?

One of the great things about living here in the United States is that people can always speak their mind. The First Amendment to the Constitution grants every US citizen the right to freedom of speech and peacefully protest. This way, if someone doesn’t like something that is going on in the world, they can speak out against it and try to make a change.

While this law is a great one, there is often a bit of confusion around it. Sometimes people find themselves being arrested for what they believe to have been them exercising their First Amendment Rights. This is especially common during protests. The problem is that some people don’t understand what is and isn’t protected, and so they may overstep and do something they think is protected when, in fact, it is considered illegal.

The First Amendment To The Constitution

The US Constitution is what gives us citizens our many rights. The First Amendment to the Constitution grants citizens freedom of speech, freedom of the press, the freedom of religion, and the right to assemble/petition. This is the amendment that gives people the right to protest when they are upset about something.

The Amendment was a part of the Bill of Rights, which is the first 10 amendments to the Constitution. It was adopted into law in 1791 to protect the civil liberties of US citizens.

Where People Run Into Trouble

The problem that most people run into while protesting is that they start to break laws even though they think they are just exercising their right to free speech.

True, everyone has the right to free speech. However, no one is allowed to threaten the safety of others or to lie or slander other people. Threatening to hurt or kill people is never acceptable and is not protected under the First Amendment. Doing this will get a person arrested, and rightfully so. No one should ever be made to feel like their life is in danger. A protester is also not allowed to say things that could start a riot or other dangerous behavior.

People are allowed to gather and protest, as long as they do so safely and in designated public areas. Some acceptable places to protest include parks, sidewalks, public streets, public auditoriums, the steps of city hall, in front of government buildings and on private property with the property owner’s permission. A person can protest in any of these locations without fear of arrest, so long as they are not exhibiting any unsafe behavior, such as blocking traffic.

Protesters still have to listen to orders given by peace officers whose jobs it is to protect people’s safety. Police officers are meant to keep people safe. If they are telling someone to stop acting in a dangerous manner, which can include disrupting traffic, disturbing the peace or risking public health, the person needs to listen or they will be arrested.

A protester is allowed to peacefully express their opinions as long as they continue to follow other established laws. If they don’t do that, then they could be arrested for breaking those laws.

Laws Protesters Can Be Charged With In California

A person can get arrested while protesting if they start breaking laws. Some of the laws that are most commonly broken by protesters include:

  • PENAL CODE 148: Resisting Arrest
    A person breaks this law when they resist arrest or obstruct an officer from arresting someone else.
  • PENAL CODE 403: Disturbing A Public Meeting
    A person breaks this law when they willfully disturb or break up a lawful public meeting.
  • PENAL CODE 409: Failing To Disperse
    A person breaks this law when they stay at a riot or other unlawful assembly after being told to leave by a police officer.
  • PENAL CODE 415: Disturbing The Peace
    A person breaks this law when they play excessively loud music, start a fight with someone or use offensive language meant to start a fight.
  • PENAL CODE 602: Trespassing
    A person breaks this law when they enter or remain on private property when they don’t have permission to be there.

Everyone Has Rights

Here in the US, when a person has an objection to something, they have the right to say so. They have the right to try and peacefully convince others of their idea. However, they do not have the right to do whatever they want while protesting.

During a protest, protesters must remember other peoples’ rights as well. People have the right to go about their daily lives peacefully, they have the right to not be threatened with violence and everyone has the right to speak their mind, even if their opinion is different.

 

What Are Your Rights When You’re Pulled Over?

What Are Your Rights When You’re Pulled Over?

What Are Your Rights When You’re Pulled Over?

A whole lot of things can happen while a person is driving. One thing that most drivers would prefer to avoid is getting pulled over. Unfortunately, sometimes things happen, and the driver makes a mistake. Sometimes, as far as the driver knows, they didn’t do anything wrong but find themselves getting pulled over anyways.

When a person gets pulled over, it is important for them to remember that they do have rights. These rights help protect a person from an officer who might be abusing their power. If a person’s rights are violated, they can take the matter to court.

Passenger Rights During The Stop

When someone has been pulled over by the police, they have two primary rights:

  • The right to remain silent.
  • The right to be free from unreasonable search and seizures.

The first right is pretty well known thanks to the Miranda Rights, but many people are not fully aware that a person does not have to be arrested for it to come into effect. Even when a person is being stopped by a police officer for a traffic violation, they have the right to remain silent. If a person chooses to do this, they should inform the officer that they are choosing to remain silent. It is also a good idea for the person to give the officer their name.

The 4th Amendment to the Constitution protects everyone from unreasonable searches and seizures. This means that a police officer cannot search a person, their vehicle or even their phone without good reason. If an officer suspects that a person has a weapon on them or contraband such as drugs, then they can search the person and their vehicle. However, officers do need a warrant to search a person’s phone, and they cannot delete anything off of the device.

Both of these rights apply to passengers as well. Passengers can even have an additional right of being able to leave, since it is the driver who got pulled over. However, they need to ask the officer if they are free to go. If they are given permission to leave, they can.

Passenger Rights After The Stop

After a person has been stopped, they have the following rights:

  • The right to challenge the legality of the stop in court.
  • The right to challenge the legality of any searches in court.

If a person feels that their rights were violated during a traffic stop, they should write down as much information as they can. This means writing down the officer’s badge number and their patrol car number. They should also write down which agency they are from. Was the officer with the police, a sheriff or California Highway Patrol (CHP)? If there were witnesses, try to get their contact information. If there were any injuries, the person should take photographs of those injuries. Lastly, the person should file a written complaint with the department’s internal affairs.

If the person is still concerned with how they were treated, they can take the matter to court.

Drivers Have Rights

No driver ever wants to get pulled over, but sometimes things happen. If a driver is pulled over, they need to remember that they do have rights. They can exercise those rights without fear of repercussion. If an officer does infringe on a driver’s rights, that driver can take the matter to court and seek compensation that way.

Just as important as knowing your rights is knowing how to pullover when a law enforcement officer stops you. If you want to know more about how to properly pull over and behave during a traffic stop, click here.

 

Is Prop 47 Helping Or Hurting California?

Is Prop 47 Helping Or Hurting California?

Is Prop 47 Helping Or Hurting California?

All the way back in 2014, California voters chose to enact Proposition 47. Prop 47 was billed as a way of making the punishment aspect of law and punishment fairer for many nonviolent offenses. With the passing of this proposition, certain crimes were reduced from felonies to misdemeanors.

By doing this, politicians hoped to reduce the amount of inmates in incarceration and save the state some money. The saved money would then be directed toward different services in an attempt to prevent people from turning to crime in the first place, and help rehabilitate those that had. Unfortunately, after 6 years, it is beginning to look more and more like the idea backfired.

What Prop 47 Was Meant To Do?

Prop 47’s primary concern was dealing with the overcrowding of California’s jail and prison systems. It did this by reducing certain nonviolent offenses from felonies to misdemeanors. Some of these crimes included:

  • Shoplifting
  • Petty theft
  • Receiving stolen property
  • Forgery
  • Passing bad checks
  • Possession of narcotic controlled substances

In 2015, a report authored by one of the co-authors of Prop 47 stated that California’s prison population had been reduced by 13,000, saving the state roughly $150 million. This seems to indicate that Prop 47 succeeded in doing what its authors set out to do.

As far as the saved money going toward programs to help reduce crime and provide drug rehabilitation, the money for that just started going out in 2017. The Board of State and Community Corrections approved to hand out a reported $103 million dollars to just 23 programs that showed the most promise across the state.

What People Are Seeing Happen

There have been several studies on the effects of Prop 47 since its passing. The results of the studies frequently vary on whether the reform helped or harmed the state of California.

Many law enforcement agencies claim that Prop 47 has made it easier for career criminals to get away with crimes. Nowadays, as long as a person steals less than $950, they won’t face any jail time. They can be back on the streets after an arrest in just a few hours, ready to commit more crimes, and that is if the person even gets arrested in the first place.

Many people who have been victims of theft in the state have been shocked to learn how local law enforcement agencies react to the incidents these days. More often than not, police will be slow to respond to reports of petty theft and shoplifting, if they respond at all. This is often due to one of two reasons:

  • They are too busy to deal with what is now a small crime.
  • Catching the thief won’t actually stop the thief.

When a person’s cry for help goes unheard, it breaks their trust in the criminal justice system.

Many police officers and sheriffs view Prop 47 as a get out of jail free card. As long as crooks stay under that $950 threshold, they won’t face any consequences. In at least one instance, a thief was caught going through a store with a calculator to ensure he/she didn’t exceed that magic number.

Residents and law enforcement officers aren’t the only ones noticing the trends. Many retailers, including Target, Rite Aid and CVS are also reporting that incidents of shoplifting in their California stores have increased anywhere from 15 to 50% since the passing of Prop 47 in 2014.

As of 2019, organized retail theft was shown to be on the rise in California. Organized retail theft, for those unaware, is where gangs create an organized business of stealing from retailers and then reselling the stolen goods.

Who Did Prop 47 Really Help?

A study conducted by UC Irvine in 2018 claimed that the increase in crime rates wasn’t caused by Prop 47. The only thing Prop 47 did was “cause less harm and suffering to those charged with crime.” The study used comparisons to other states who had similar trends in crime statistics to back up its claims that the rise in crimes in California wasn’t due to the passing of Prop 47.

While criminals might not be suffering from the effects of Prop 47, many innocent people are. The victims of these increased thefts have taken notice of the fact that their calls for help are getting ignored. While they try to voice their concerns to their local authorities, there is little the police or sheriffs can do until the laws are changed. Prop 47 doesn’t care how many times a person is accused or convicted of a crime, it only cares about the one particular crime.

 

The Top 20 Safest Cities In California

The Top 20 Safest Cities In California

The Top 20 Safest Cities In California

When people are looking to move, they always want to make sure that the place they are moving to is safe. Figuring out if a particular city is safe, comparing it to other cities, they need to look at a professionally done study.

How The List Was Created

There are several ways that cities can be ranked in safety. Each study conducts itself a little differently than others. However, they all typically have a few similarities. Every study will examine the violent and property crime statistics for each city. What differs is how much they weigh those crimes when calculating the city’s safety.

SafeWise created its list by referencing The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program. UCR is a national program into which cities all over the country report their crime statistics. This gives SafeWise numbers to work with from 2017, which are the most recent numbers to date.

In order to prevent smaller, outlying cities who can have drastically different crime statistics from skewing the data, SafeWise only looked at cities whose populations were over the state median. Basically, they only looked at cities that would be classified as medium or larger within the state.

When ranking the cities, SafeWise chose to prioritize violent crime rates over property crime rates. This is due to the fact that violent crimes can cause physical harm to people, and are therefore typically more concerning than property crimes, which only damage property. While both types of crimes are upsetting, violent crimes are obviously worse than property crimes.

The study compared the violent crime rates per 1,000 people. If there was a tie between two cities with violent crimes, then they ranked the cities by their reported property crimes.

The Top Safest Cities

The top 20 safest cities in California according to SafeWise’s research are as follows:

  1. Danville – Violent Crimes .35 per 1,000, Property Crimes 7.83 per 1,000
  2. Irvine – Violent Crimes .61 per 1,000, Property Crimes 13.16 per 1,000
  3. Rancho Santa Margarita – Violent Crimes .65 per 1,000, Property Crimes 6.67 per 1,000
  4. Yorba Linda – Violent Crimes .65 per 1,000, Property Crimes 10.36 per 1,000
  5. Murrieta – Violent Crimes .71 per 1,000, Property Crimes 14 per 1,000
  6. San Ramon – Violent Crimes .73 per 1,000, Property Crimes 10.48 per 1,000
  7. Rancho Palos Verdes – Violent Crimes .78 per 1,000, Property Crimes 10.48 per 1,000
  8. Folsom – Violent Crimes .82 per 1,000, Property Crimes 15.73 per 1,000

  14. Diamond Bar – Violent Crimes 1 per 1,000, Property Crimes 18.30 per 1,000

How To Prepare To Deal With Bail

How To Prepare To Deal With Bail

How To Prepare To Deal With Bail

Most people have never dealt with bail before because no one they know ever got arrested. With thousands of people getting arrested every single day in California, chances are someone that you know will get arrested at some point. If that ever happens, you want to be prepared. After all, the faster you deal with someone’s bail, the less time they spend locked up.

The best way to deal with bail is to get a bail bond from David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Farmersville. Our bonds only cost 10% of the bail they are for and you get help from our professional bail agents. To help you get through this whole ordeal of bailing out your loved one as quickly as possible, here are some ways you can be prepared for the bail bond before talking to an agent.

The hardest part when it comes to bail is money. Try to have a good idea of how much you can afford to pay before contacting a bail agent. On top of that, try talking to friends and family members to see who else might be willing to bail out your loved one. Multiple people can co-sign for the bail bond. This way, the financial burden is split across the co-signers and they all share responsibility.

Each co-signer will need three bits of paperwork when meeting with a bail agent to sign papers. Those three bits will include:

  • A recent paycheck, pay stub or bank statement to prove income.
  • A recent piece of mail with your name and address for proof of California residency.
  • A valid California ID such as a driver’s license or state-issued ID card.

Once we have seen that information, we will be able to proceed with the bail bond.
