Explaining Bail Bonds

American Canyon Bail Bonds

When a person is arrested for a crime, he or she will have an arraignment hearing, at which time the judge will announce how much his or her bail is. Fortunately, the individual does not have to pay for bail on his or her own. Anyone can help pay for bail if they wish, though it is not cheap. In addition, a bail bond company, like American Canyon Bail Bond Store, can help pay for bail with a bail bond, which lowers the cost that participating individuals need to pay.

By using a bail bond, anyone paying for the bail will only need to pay 10% of the bail. This 10% is paid to the bail bond company over a payment plan. The bail bond company, backed by an insurance company, signs off on the bond and submits it to the court. The defendant is then freed on the conditions that he or she:

  1. Goes to court when he or she is ordered to.
  2. Stays out of trouble.
  3. Makes bail bond payments on time.
  4. Obliges to any other release terms and conditions.

Failure to comply with any of these can lead to the defendant being arrested again and held without bail.

What Happens To Voting Rights If You Are In Jail

American Canyon Bail Bonds

The presidential election is starting to take shape and voting happens in November. Anyone 18 or older can vote, obviously. But 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 answers to these questions, and other similar questions, in regards to California:

  • 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, American Canyon Bail Bond Store can help you do that (again, this is for those who are in jail only and have yet to be convicted).

The Rights Of Arrested Individuals

American Canyon Bail Bond Store

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 is:

  1. The right to remain silent
  2. 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 a hired private lawyer or a public defender, the suspect has the right to an attorney to represent them and help fight their case. The attorney will be present at all further questioning.

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 this with the help of a bail bond agent, who will make the process easy and more affordable, as bail along is not easy to pay.

To learn more about bail and bail bonds, please contact American Canyon Bail Bond Store. One of our bondsman will be able to answer all your questions and concerns and draw up an affordable bail bond payment plan for your review. Let American Canyon Bail Bond Store help – we absolutely will not let you down!

What Appears On Your Background Check

American Canyon Bail Bond Store

There are two types of people: those with a criminal background and those without. For those with a criminal background check, you’re probably wondering, nervously, what exactly pops up when someone requests or searches into your history. Here’s some information that might answer your questions.

  • Individuals, partners, corporations or limited liability companies may request to review your criminal background. This includes employers, banks and property owners. They first need to receive consent to obtain the records.
  • Only records where there was a conviction will appear on the criminal record. Any arrests or detention that did not result in conviction will not appear.
  • Any records that have been sealed or expunged will not appear.
  • Only records within the last 7 years will appear. Anything that occurred longer before will not appear. However, there may be certain circumstances where older crimes may be necessary.

If an employer learns you have a criminal history, it does not immediately deny you the position. The employer can and likely will ask you questions about your criminal history but if they find you to be very qualified and a good candidate, they will not disregard your application.

Criminal backgrounds do not “destroy” the rest of your life, per se. It will be something that comes up every now and then but plenty of people with criminal history find great success and happiness.

We hope you never get any conviction on your criminal record but if you are ever arrested, we encourage you to bail out of jail with American Canyon Bail Bond Store. Hopefully your trial finds you “not guilty.”
