Californians Need To Be Prepared

Californians Need To Be Prepared

Californians Need To Be Prepared

California is pretty well known for its earthquakes, and while the state gets several hundreds of small earthquakes a year, the area is prone to another form of natural disaster. Every Californian knows that the state gets several wildfires a year, and with the state still facing drought, the fires have been getting larger.

Summer may be approaching its inevitable end, but the hot, dry weather has made its mark. The state has already had several large fires this year and some have, unfortunately, been deadly.

It is important for every California resident to be ready for a wildfire.

By being prepared, a person will be better able to keep themselves and their loved one’s safe.

An important step for all families is to have an evacuation plan ready to go. This plan needs to be practiced and well known by every family member, this way the family can leave at a moment’s notice. The plan should include multiple escape routes from the home, as well as a final destination for every member to meet at in case of separation. There should also be a well-stocked emergency kit somewhere in the home that every family member knows about.

Aside from preparing the family for a wildfire, it is also important to prepare the home as well. The state of California requires that every property owner create 100 feet of defensible space around their home or other buildings. This means keeping tall and highly flammable plants at least 30 feet from your home. There are other regulations that you can learn about by clicking here to visit Cal Fire’s webpage on defensible space.

Doing these little things to prepare yourself, your family, and your home can make a huge difference. It gives everyone in your family a better chance of survival in the event of a fire. Creating proper defensible space gives your home a better chance of getting through the wildfire unscathed. These are both things that everyone wants when facing a raging wildfire.

 

What Is Jordan’s Law?

Loma Bail Bonds

Loma Bail Bonds

Seeing a video of any sort of crime or attack on the internet is happening more and more frequently. Most of the times, the video was taken without the wrongdoer’s knowing. The video will gain popularity if it depicts the wrongdoer messing up in some hilarious way.

The other portion of crime related videos going around are not as entertaining to most people. Some attention seekers decide to gain internet fame by creating their own video. Often times, these videos are far more sinister in nature. These wrongdoers decide to create a video of them attacking a random person. This can leave the victim in serious or even life threatening conditions.

This was the case was last December when 14 year old Jordan Peisner was attacked and beaten by random teen he’d never met. The incident was recorded by an accomplice of the attacker, who then posted the recording to Snapchat. A civil lawsuit alleged that the teenager who recorded the incident and posted it, did so, so that the group of friend could gain fame and notoriety online.

Assembly bill 1542, nicknamed Jordan’s Law, looks to change how this sort of event is handled.

Jordan’s Law seeks to increase the punishment for anyone who films their attack of someone or any other crime for the purpose of gaining online fame by adding a one year enhancement to the punishment.

It also states that anyone assisting the attacker in the filming of the attack will be held equally liable. The bill does not affect people who film random crimes.

Is Ticket Scalping Legal?

Ticket Scalping Loma

Ticket Scalping Loma

Ticket scalping is when a person resells their ticket to an event, like a concert or a sporting event, to another person. The purchaser does not buy the ticket directly from the event itself, but rather goes to someone who already owns a ticket to the event, but is looking to get rid of it. The price is determined by the individual who is in possession of the ticket, and it is often a bigger price than the face value they purchased it for. This is because they are looking to make a profit from the sale.

In California, ticket scalping is illegal when done on the grounds of the event. This is a misdemeanor charge that carries a fine as high as $1,000.

While that may be illegal, it is legal to purchase resale tickets online from valid ticket websites such as SeatGeek, StubHub, and Ticketmaster. These sites allow people to search for ticket sales to any number of events in their area. The website is required to:

  • Disclose seat locations to the potential buyer before the sale
  • Maintain records of ticket exchanges
  • Disclose service charge
  • Provide refunds if the event is canceled or rescheduled
  • Be licensed by a local government agency to act and operate as a ticket resale site

Purchasing resale tickets through these websites are among the most secure ways to get your tickets. You are not being scammed. In the instance that the event is changed, you will get a refund. You will be provided with official records and receipts. Other sites like Craigslist are less secure and the risk of purchasing fake tickets rises. Once a person learns that their tickets are fake, they have almost zero chance of contacting the person who sold it to them and getting their money back.

Always be cautious of where and how you buy your tickets.

In general, you should never trust someone who is trying to sell tickets outside of the event itself, on the day of the event. We said this is illegal, yet people do it anyway. Sometimes security will ask these scalpers to leave the grounds, but some go unnoticed and even make a sale, very likely a sale that produced fake tickets.

What Happens If You Fail To Pay Your Child Support

Loma Bail Bonds

The consequences of failing to make your court-mandated child support payments run deep. The matter is taken very seriously.


Consequences include:

  • Arrest
  • Fines
  • Being in contempt of court
  • Denial of tax refunds
  • Wage garnishment – When the court orders your employer to withhold a certain amount of your paycheck and send it directly to the court or the partner instead
  • Exclusion from receiving government benefits
  • Confiscated passport
  • Confiscation or suspension of licenses
  • Placing a lien on property – The court possesses the person’s property until debt is paid

A person can face one, many, or all of the above consequences for failing to make their child support payments. One alone is harmful enough, but dealing with multiple can be incredibly detrimental to a person’s quality of life.

When someone has failed to make their child support payments, they can lose the ability to get any sort of license or other form of paperwork from the government. This person has essentially been blacklisted from receiving any form of help from the government until he or she begins making child support payments again.

It is one thing to purposely not make a payment; it is another thing to run into financial difficulty to make payments on time. It is urged that if a person finds themselves experiencing the latter, that they bring this to the attention of the court, their lawyer, and local authorities. They can assist the individual and alleviate the stress like revising payment plans.

A person is not on his or her own when it comes to dealing with a situation like this. The court wants to see both sides of the family succeed and they will do what they can to make it work.

Treat Bail Bond Payments Like You Do Rent

Loma Bail Bonds

Choosing to post bail using a bail bond means:

  1. You pay less, overall.
  2. You pay in increments over a custom payment plan.
  3. You have an understanding, accommodating, and helpful bail agent

It does not mean that you should not prioritize bail bond payments. Keep track of what you owe and when. Also keep track of when you have made a payment. Look at your spending habits elsewhere. You may find that you need to re-work your budget, so you can keep up with bail bond payments like you do your rent and utility bills.

Something you will want to keep an eye out for in the mail is your tax return. Hopefully this will be a rather hefty amount of money that you get back from the government. Instead of splurging this on a shopping spree, apply it towards your bail bond payments. You need to keep up with this or better yet, get ahead.

Keep in touch with your bail agent every now and then. They are there to assist you through the whole process. They have your back and want everything to go right. They’re understanding and accommodating, but that does not mean they will let you off the hook for missing payments.

Did You Know: The Police Need A Warrant To Search Your Cell Phone?

Loma Bail Bonds

Loma Bail Bonds

In the broadest answer as to whether the police need a warrant to search your cell phone in California, the answer is yes, they need a warrant unless you give your consent. Technically, the police cannot even look at the screen without a warrant, even if they press the button to turn it off.

Cell phones are a major part of our everyday lives now. We have text messages, GPS data, emails, and phone calls on there. Many people keep sensitive information entrusted on their phones. People are very private about their cell phones, even if there is no passcode to unlock it. People often do not want others looking over their shoulder, nor do they want to be that person just peeking over at the person next to them. It is a common-courtesy privacy thing, really.

So call it a major win for well, everyone. The police need a warrant to search your cell phone.

If you or a loved one wind up arrested because of evidence found on your cell phone, you may be eligible to post bail. This will be decided at your arraignment.

New Laws To Prevent Distracted Driving

Loma Bail Bonds

Loma Bail Bonds

We all know that using cell phones while driving is a no-no. It has been illegal for several years now, but since the original bills were put into effect, the intelligence of smartphones has increased. They can access social media, texts, email, video chat, and have better GPS. It is no secret that we rely on our smartphones for practically everything these days, or that we are on our phones all the time. To keep up with smartphones, new laws regarding cell phone use and driving have been put into place this year, which extend on the existing laws.

The new laws are meant to prevent distracted driving and say that the only phone interaction a driver may have is one single swipe or tap. The laws also state that the phones must be properly mounted to the car.

The minimum punishment if caught disobeying laws is a fine. The maximum punishment; accident, injury, or arrest.

If you or someone you know are in need of a bail bond after having been arrested for violating any law, contact Loma Bail Bond Store online or at 661-326-0608.
