You’re Not Invincible; You Can Go To Jail!

murrieta-bail-bonds-730

You’re young and you might like to have a lot of fun. You might like to party, drink, hang out with friends, stay out late, and act as if you are invincible. Many people just like you find themselves arrested and thrown in jail for offenses related to alcohol and partying. Often they’re fairly minor offenses, but sometimes they’re way more serious than receiving just 24 hours in jail.

Ask the people who you are sitting next to in jail how they got there. See how many tell you that they were drinking and driving or got into an altercation after a night of drinking. The rest of the stories are probably ones that you don’t want to go into details about.

Know this; all those people sitting in jail with you probably never thought they’d actually end up arrested. Perhaps they know that what they did was wrong, but they probably thought they’d get away with it. Look at it like this; now that you’re in jail, you need to deal with it. It’s not the end of the world!

You can bail out of jail, and Murrieta Bail Bond Store will help you! Contact Murrieta Bail Bond Store today!

Bail Prices Range For Infractions, Misdemeanors, and Felonies

murrieta-bail-bonds-715

As you know, bail prices will be based on the crime that took place. Crimes are categorized into three different types: infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies (felonies being the most serious crimes). Fines and bail for infractions and misdemeanors will generally be less than that of felonies; here are some relatively common bail prices for some crimes that fall into these three categories:

  1. Misuse of 9-1-1 dialing: $50, increasing with each offense.
  2. Carrying a loaded firearm in public: $10,000.
  3. Selling or using a device that obscures visibility of a license plate: $250.
  4. Driving with a suspended or revoked license: $1,000.
  5. Reckless driving: $5,000.
  6. Hunting during unlawful hunting hours: $200.
  7. Take or possess fully protected mammals: $5,000.

There are all kinds of rules and regulations and laws that can be broken, and rest assured, there will be consequences! There will be financial consequences and even possibly a jail sentence. If you’re in need of a bail bond to help cut the costs so you don’t have to pay the full bail price, get in touch with Murrieta Bail Bond Store right now!

How Bail Is Determined

riverside-county-bail-bonds-store-457

In the justice system, there is a “bail schedule” that outlines the bail price for each crime. This is the overarching book that the judge must follow, but he or she may also adjust the price as they see fit. For example, if this is a fourth offense, the judge may hike the bail a little. Bail schedules are pretty standard throughout the state of California, but may vary in certain areas by county or city. Bail schedules are reviewed annually for any changes necessary.

Felonies will have higher bail prices than misdemeanors since they are much more severe and serious crimes. Some felonies may not offer bail at all. Bail for murder can be one million or no bail at all. Voluntary manslaughter can be one hundred thousand while involuntary manslaughter can be twenty five thousand. Possession of a loaded firearm is twenty thousand. Hunting without a license can be a one hundred bail. Cheating in gambling is a two thousand dollar bail.

Once the judge sets bail, it is very unlikely he or she will lower it. The defendant may request the bail be reviewed, but in all likelihood, the judge will not change it. So, in order to help pay for bail, getting an agent from Riverside County Bail Bond Store would be the thing to do. With the agent’s help, only 10-15% of the full bail price would need to be paid, and it is paid over set period of time, rather than one full payment upfront.
