Your iPod Or Phone Could Be Worth Millions Of Dollars

California Bail Bond Store

Your iPod or phone could be worth millions of dollars, but don’t jump for joy just yet. What we mean is that more than likely, it has hundreds of songs on there that were illegally downloaded and if you are caught, it can cost you a very pricey consequence.

Under federal law, offenders can face up to five years in prison and or up to $250,000 in fines. On top of that, the copyright holder can sue in civil court, which means thousands of more dollars in damages and legal fees. And if you are eligible for bail (before court), you have that hefty fee to pay as well (unless you opt to stay in jail instead).

California Bail Bond Store can help ease your thoughts around some of the prices here, if you are ever caught and charged for illegally downloading (or illegally sharing) music. Instead of paying the court the full bail amount you are given, you can pay us 10% of it and we will draw up a bail bond to get you out of jail. This leaves you with extra funds to allocate to other legal fees. Our bail bond services are top notch and efficient. We are the best bail bond company in all of California so why settle for anyone else? Give us a call at 800-793-2245 and we can help you (or a loved one) out.

What You Can Do To Help Reduce Crime Rates

California Bail Bond Store

For the first time in over 10 years, crime in California has risen. Violent crime (rape, aggravated assault, etc.) increased 20.6%, property crime increased 10.9%, auto theft increased 13.8%, and burglary increased 15.8%. A factor to this rise is Prop 47 that reduces felonies to misdemeanors for non-violent, non-serious crimes. This is also due to the fact that prisons are over-crowding and currently not equipped to handle everyone. For the defendants Prop 47 benefits, this means they do not go to jail.

But this does not mean crime rates will continue to rise. Actions are continuously being taken to reduce crime as much as possible and believe it or not, there are ways you, the general public, can help reduce crime rates.

If a love done of ours happens to get arrested for a crime, encourage them to post bail with a bail bond. Why? People out on bail are less likely to break the law again. Because a bail bond requires someone to put up collateral, the arrestee knows that this collateral (and their relationship with the person who put up the collateral) is on the line. So, the arrestee is more than likely to abide by his or her bail bond conditions of release. They are also less likely to run into trouble again because getting re-arrested results in bail forfeiture and additional consequences.

So, by encouraging a loved one of yours to post bail with a bail bond, or by personally helping them with the finances for it, you are doing your part to help reduce crime rates in your beautiful city of California. And, you aren’t doing this alone! California Bail Bond Store of California will help guide you through the bail bond process. We want to help you, your loved one, and others in your situation get out of jail and get home. So, give us a call at 800-793-2245.

Take The Quiz: Do You Remember Your Rights?

California Bail Bond Store

Let’s take a little history lesson, a rather important one. In grade school, we learn about the Constitution and Bill of Rights. These rights have protected the people for over 200 years and continue to do so, so it is imperative for the people to know their rights and know if and when they are being out of line, or if they are ever abused from another party. So, do you know all ten bills?

  1. Freedom of speech, press, religion, and petition. The people are allowed to speak freely, gather with others, practice any religion (or no religion), and speak up to the government. The press may cover this.
  2. Right to keep and bear arms. While this always very debatable between protecting the state versus individuals, this Amendment protects the right to gun ownership.
  3. Conditions for quarters of soldiers. The government may not force the public to house soldiers.
  4. Right of search and seizure regulated. The people may deny the government’s request to search their body, property, and belongings, unless there is a warrant.
  5. Provisions concerning prosecution. A person may not be held in custody for committing a crime unless they are charged. (There is a time frame from the arrest that the government must formally charge the arrestee, or let them go.) A person cannot be tried twice for the same crime and doesn’t have to testify against him or herself.
  6. Right to a speedy trial. This Amendment guarantees a speedy trial. Defendants are allowed to have a lawyer.
  7. Right to a trial by jury. This is held in federal civil court.
  8. Excessive bail, cruel punishment. Bail must be reasonable and punishments must be fair.
  9. Rule of construction of Constitution. Aside from the aforementioned rights, other rights for the public do exist. Just because they are not listed above doesn’t mean they can be violated. They cannot.
  10. Rights of the States under Constitution. Any power not given to the federal government belongs to the states or people.

Now that you’ve freshened up your memory, you can take a more proactive take on your daily routing. You know what you are and are not allowed to do. If someone is infringing on your rights, speak up!

California Bail Bond Store is here to help protect some of these rights in the ways we can: bail. We produce bail bonds for people who have been recently arrested. Our bail bonds “replace” paying for 100% of the bail in cash. Instead, you’d pay only 10% of it to us, and we take care of the rest from there.

Give us a call at 800-793-2245 with any questions, concerns, or need to get a bail bond for yourself or another person.

The Best Thing About Being The Older Sibling

California Bail Bond Store

People generally think that being the younger sibling is “better” and “more fun.” Parents are more lax with their second child, having raised the first child and seeing the pros and cons to their parenting style. Over-protective on the first child? Ease up a bit on the second. Trust the first child enough? Certainly trust the second. But, there are definitely big pay offs to being the older sibling, and the best thing is getting to be in a role model position.

The older sibling gets the blessing of having the younger one look up to them. It’s imperative for the older sibling to model him or herself in a positive, goal-oriented manner. The parents will be very pleased with their older child. Effectively, the younger child wants to be just as perfect, if not better. He or she will take after the older sibling and they too, will grow up to make their parents extremely proud.

The older sibling also has the ability to steer their younger sibling away from danger and rough obstacles that aren’t necessary. If they see their younger brother or sister acting too close to getting arrested, they have the strongest influence to help turn them around.

This is the best thing about being the older sibling – being the wonderful role model for the younger sibling. Older siblings have that watchful, caring eye. And younger siblings will likely respond a bit better to their older sibling than to their parents because well, they’re parents.

So, for all the older children out there, we’re counting on you to not only be able to keep yourself out of trouble, but to also keep your younger peers who you call brothers and sisters out of jail. We hope you won’t ever need to call us but if you do, for yourself or for a loved one, we at California Bail Bond Store will not hesitate to answer your call and help you out. We can bail someone out quickly and quietly.

Our number is 800-793-2245.

These Are Animals Californians May Not Own

California Bail Bond Store

Believe it or not, California has some of the strictest laws when it comes to pet ownership. For example, one cannot own a tiger in California, but can you believe it is legal to own one in other states? There are even some cute and furry little friends who are unwelcome as house pets. Whether these animals are exotic, endangered, dangerous to the public, and/ or a threat to native wildlife and crop, this is a short list of animals Californians may not have as house pets:

  • Ferrets
  • Hedgehogs
  • Tigers
  • First generation of wolf dog hybrids
  • African clawed frogs
  • Monk parakeets, or Quaker parrots
  • Owls
  • Raccoons

So if you were thinking of catching that raccoon that hangs around your backyard every night and trying to domesticate it, think again! Having these illegal pets are punishable by fines and possible jail time. If the “pet” damages property or harms others, the owner is subject to much harsher consequences. And of course, animal control will take the animal away.

If you get caught for owning a ferret or any other illegal animal, California Bail Bond Store can issue a bail bond to help get you out of jail until your court date. Our number is 800-793-2245. You can Californialy count on us!

This Is What Happens In The Immediate Hours Following An Arrest

California Bail Bond Store

What happens in the immediate hours following an arrest is what is called the booking process. This is when your official arrest record is updated. The booking process sounds like a quick 10 minute procedure but it can really take quite awhile depending on the number of people being booked and the number of officers working. Here is what will happen:

  1. Your name and crime will be recorded.
  2. Your mug shot will be taken.
  3. You will undergo a full body search. Personal items and clothing will be taken. Of course, you will be given new clothing to wear.
  4. You will be fingerprinted.
  5. You will be scanned for any outstanding warrants or other charges like unpaid tickets.
  6. You will take a health screening.

There may be more steps involved, which will be up to the discretion of the police, but these are the main steps involved in the booking process.

Even if you post bail before you are booked, you cannot officially be released yet. You must wait until you have been booked. That being said, please do not hesitate to contact us at California Bail Bond Store immediately when you know you are eligible for bail. We’ll help you and any loved ones come up with a low monthly rate payment plan. Once all the paperwork is signed we’ll get your bail bond to the jail as quickly as possible so once you are done with the booking, you can leave. The bail bond process with us takes only a short time and can be done over the phone so your wait time in jail isn’t any longer than it needs to be.

Please call us at 800-793-2245 soon!
