Are you wondering how much the interest on your friend or family member’s bail bond will be? Well, if you go to the right bail bond company, you will not have to pay any interest.

Some bail bond companies charge interest on their bail bonds. This means that you will have to pay more than you thought to get your loved one out of jail.

This means you pay way more than you need to.

Cash Bail Vs. Bail Bonds

David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Visalia

David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Visalia

When needing to post bail, a defendant has a couple of options. Which option he or she chooses is dependent on what they can afford.

The first option is cash bail. For this option, the defendant, and anyone on his or her behalf, must pay the full bail amount to the court in order for the defendant to be released. The full amount must be paid before the defendant will be released. The money can be refunded later on, if the defendant shows up for court and does not cause any further problems.

The second option is a bail bond, where the defendant hires a third party bail bond company to assist with the process. The defendant, and anyone on his or her behalf, will pay the bail bond company 10% of the full bail amount, which is called the premium. The premium is paid off over a payment plan that continues after the defendant is released. Collateral is also pledged, but as long as the defendant appears in court and does not cause any further problems, the collateral will be released back to the original owner. The money for the premium, however, is not refunded.

Given the flexibility of the bail bond option, more people go this route than the cash bail. Both are equally legitimate options and choosing one over the other does not necessarily indicate financial stability at all. Even celebrities use bail bonds. It is what the person can afford and what assistance they want.

About The New California Cell Phone Use & Driving Laws

David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Visalia

David Ortiz Bail Bonds in Visalia

New California laws banning the use of cellphones while driving have officially been put into place starting January 1, 2017. While such laws have already existed in California for some time now, the new laws expand on existing ones. The existing ones are outdated, having begun when smart phones were less advanced than today, and apps like Waze and social media platforms were less popular.

The new laws say that drivers may only do a single swipe or tap on their phone, but their phone must be mounted on the dashboard or windshield in the driver’s lower left or upper left corner. A phone mounted in the middle of the windshield is illegal. This allows drivers to use their GPS maps while still maintaining focus on their driving and the road.

We know all the possible outcomes a car accident can lead to: fines, arrest, jail time, hospitalization, death. No one wants to experience any of that. Drivers, please be aware and knowledgeable of your driving rights and laws.

What Determines Own Recognizance Release

Visalia Bail Bonds

Visalia Bail Bonds

Not all who are arrested are given the opportunity to be released on own recognizance, which is when a defendant signs formal papers promising to show up for court, then is released from jail. Most defendants are granted bail, meaning they have to pay money to the court in order to be released from jail. Some are denied bail altogether. What factors determine own recognizance and bail?

    Who determines: The judge.

    What factors contribute: A defendant’s prior criminal record, the current crime he or she is accused of, the ties and relationships the defendant has to others in the community, and their financial ability to pay for bail.

As you can probably guess, if a defendant has virtually no prior criminal history, has strong ties to the community, and the crime he or she is accused of is not very serious, then this defendant has a much better chance at being granted own recognizance release. It is not guaranteed, but the chances are certainly better.

For those who are granted bail, there are two options: cash bail or a bail bond where a third party bail bond company steps in to assist. Before making a rash decision and going the cash bail route, please contact Visalia Bail Bond Store. We will help you understand more about the bail bond industry and how our company can benefit you. We can help you save money and get you or your loved one bailed out of jail faster. It takes just a few minutes to contact Visalia Bail Bond Store for a FREE consultation.

Juvenile Vs. Adult Proceedings

Visalia Bail Bonds

Visalia Bail Bonds

There are different proceedings, rights, and consequences for someone 17 or younger who gets arrested versus someone 18 or older who is arrested. In most states, anyone 17 or younger is called a juvenile and when they turn 18, they are called an adult. The differences are due to the fact that juveniles have less understanding of the law and are still considered minors.

  • Juvenile hearings are heard by judges only, whereas an adult has a trial by a jury.
  • Juveniles do not have the right to bail; they are released to the custody of their parents or legal guardians. Adults may be granted or denied bail.
  • Juveniles do not have a public trial.
  • On his or her 18th birthday, juvenile records are automatically sealed. So when they become an adult, their criminal record appears clean. However, the juvenile records still exist, but people who look into background history, like landlords and employers, cannot see these records.

Understanding these basic differences can help a great deal if you are suddenly in the middle of a situation yourself. If you or your loved one, who are 18 years old or older and has been granted bail, we strongly suggest you post bail with a bail bond from Visalia Bail Bond Store. Bail bonds are more affordable and, thus, more ideal to use than cash bail.

Understanding Rights In Detention Vs. Arrest

Visalia Bail Bonds

Visalia Bail Bonds

Understanding the differences between being detained and being arrested by the police is important since a person’s rights are different in each case. Here is what you want to know:

    Detention
    To be detained, the police will have reasonable suspicion to stop and question you. That person is allowed to leave after that short period of time. For example, a person is loitering around an area and the police detain him and ask what he is doing. If no further problems, the man is free to leave. During detention, officers may pat down the individual, but they cannot reach into pockets or search bags without permission. However, if they feel what could be a weapon, they can seize it.
    Arrest
    Detention can lead to an arrest if the officers find probable cause. When an arrest is made, the officers must read the individual their Miranda Rights: the right to remain silent and the right to a lawyer.

If you or someone you love has been arrested and is allowed to post bail, we urge you to contact Visalia Bail Bond Store immediately. Visalia Bail Bond Store can help by providing an affordable bail bond with a flexible payment plan.

What To Do & What Not To Do When Cops Are Around

Visalia Bail Bonds

Visalia Bail Bonds

When we are calm, we always know what to say and do when we imagine a hypothetical situation. However, when that situation is actually happening and we are caught in the middle of it, it is so easy to forget those steps. We panic and make rash decisions. Sometimes we lose our cool, but we want to avoid that at all costs.

In the instance of being stopped by the police, here is what you should and should not do, whether you are guilty of a crime or not.

If you are pulled over while driving:

  • Keep your hands on your steering wheel where the officers can see them.
  • Do not reach for anything including your license and registration until the officer asks you to. Even if you are only reaching for your license, if you do so while the officer is still in his patrol car behind you, he can see into your car and may think you are trying to get a weapon or hide something.

In any situation where you are stopped by the police:

  • Be polite and respectful.
  • Do not grow angry or argumentative.
  • Do not try to run.
  • Keep your hands in sight.
  • Get the officer’s name and badge number. Patrol vehicle number can help too.
  • Get statements and/or contact info from any witnesses.

Whether you are arrested or not, getting identification information of the cop and any witnesses can help back you up, better safe than sorry. You do not want to give the officers any reason to suspect anything of you.

If you end up arrested, you can post bail with a bail bond from Visalia Bail Bond Store. We can be reached 24/7 online and at 661-326-0608. Talk to one of our friendly bail agents for a FREE consultation and feel free to ask any bail-related questions you may have. Ask about our zero down bail bonds and bail bond discounts as well.

Do You Know The Difference?

Visalia Bail Bonds

Visalia Bail Bonds

In the bail bond industry, there are many questions that we are asked on a daily basis. One that concerns a lot of people, is: what is better for bailing out my loved one, a bail bondsman or a bail agent?
