Resisting Arrest and Paying Bail

Resisting Arrest and Paying Bail

Anyone who has ever watched a police procedural show knows that television cops automatically assume that if someone resists arrest it means that they are guilty. More often than not, it seems like the suspect’s decision to resist arrest is what it takes to get the television cop to really investigate the suspect.

Reality is a little different. In the real world, resisting arrest is a natural instinct, none of us want to go to jail. It doesn’t matter what the cops are saying, we automatically assume that if they’re taking us to jail, we’re going to be there for a really long time and we will be found guilty of some crime that we might not have done.

As natural as resisting arrest feels, it’s in your best interest to quell the urge. More often than not, resisting arrest simply leads to even more legal problems. It’s always best to go quietly and submissively with the police.

What Is Resisting Arrest

Digging in your heels and balking when the cops attempt to load you into the back of the police car isn’t considered resisting arrest. Running and trying to hide is. If you try to do either of those things, the police will file resisting arrest charges against you. If all you did was run or try to hide, you’ll only be charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest. If you respond with either verbal or physical violence, you’ll be charged with a felony count of resisting arrest.

Stay Calm During Your Arrest

From the moment the police knock on your door until the moment you’re released on bail, it’s in your best interest to stay calm, cool, and collected. Contact your lawyer so they can start to untangle the mess. As they work to sort out your legal issues, including the resisting arrest charges, you need to focus your attention on getting yourself bailed out of jail.

Are You Eligible for Bail?

Are You Eligible for Bail?

The justice system in this country is slow. Without bail, you could spend months sitting in a jail cell, waiting for something to happen with your case. That’s time you could be working, spending with your family, and preparing your defense. Paying bail is what allows you to spend that time enjoying life rather than twiddling your thumbs in a cell.

Bail Eligibility

In many cases, you’re told how much bail is required shortly after you’re arrested and charged. In other situations, you attend a bail hearing where a judge determines if you’re eligible for bail and how much the bail is.

Hearing your ineligible for bail is a gut-churning experience.

The good news is that judges usually set bail. Issues the impact ineligibility include:

• A history of failing to appear for court
• Are considered a danger to the community
• Are considered likely to break the law while you’re out on bail

 
Before you appear before the judge, both you and your lawyer should have a pretty good idea about how the judge will feel about your bail eligibility.

How Much Bail Will You Owe?

It is important to note that while most people are eligible for bail if the judge has doubts about you sticking around until the conclusion of your case, they can choose to set a high bail amount.

The factors the judge considers while determining the amount of your bail include:

• Criminal history
• Your current employment
• The gravity of the charges
• Your mental and physical health
• Your history with drugs and alcohol
• Family and community ties
• Your financial situation

 
Don’t assume that just because the judge set a high bail that you have no option but to stay in jail. Here at Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles, we’re ready and willing to provide you with the financial assistance you require.

Communicating with your Bail Bonds Man

Communicating with your Bail Bonds Man

It is no secret that communication is the secret to success. It is also a key component to successfully cultivating a harmonious relationship between yourself and your bail bondsman. Early in your relationship, there are a few key things you need to discuss with the representative who is helping secure your release from jail.

How Much with the Bond Ultimately Cost

The court determines how much bail you’ll have to pay before you can walk out of jail. If you bail yourself out, you pay the entire amount which the court returns to you once you’re case has made it through the entire legal process. 

If you require a bail bonding agency such as Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles, you pay us 10% of the total amount. We kick in 90%. Once the case is concluded, we get 100% of the money back.  

This is the standard process. Each bail bonds business has its unique twist which is why you must discuss exactly how much money you must provide and how much the bail bonds agency supplies. Make sure both amounts are clearly stated in your contact.

In addition to finding out how much bail is going to cost you, take time to learn if you need to have a co-signer if you have to sign over any assets and if you need to provide the bail bonds business with information about your employer.

How Long will it be Before You’re Allowed to Walk out of Jail

Some people assume that as soon as they contact a bail bondsman, they’ll get out of jail. That’s not usually the case. Several factors influence how much time it will take for the bail bondsman to procure your release. 
Influencing factors include:

• How long it takes you to come up with your share of the bail
• The bail bondsman’s current availability and schedule
• How long it takes the bail bondsman to fill out the required paperwork

 
Knowing how long it will likely take the bail bondsman allows you to arrange for things like transportation to your home, care for your kids, and when you can return to your job.

How Long Has the Bail Bondsman Been Active in the Area

It is in your best interest to get a little information about the bail bondsman you’re working with. There are many stories about people who thought they were getting bailed out of jail only to learn that the person they were dealing with wasn’t a bail bondsman but actually a con artist. Knowing how long they’ve been working in the area goes a long way towards confirming that you’re working with a legitimate business that can get you out of jail.

Knowing what questions you should ask your bail bondsman helps clear up a lot of communication problems and helps you to keep the relationship pleasant and business-like rather than stressful.

Is the Bail Bonds Process Changing

Is the Bail Bonds Process Changing

The bail bonds program is interesting. It was created for the purpose of allowing individuals who have been charged with a crime to carry on with their lives while they wait for their case to make its way through the legal system. The idea of the bail bonds program is that it creates a financial incentive for you to make all your mandatory court appearances. If you appear before a judge, you get the bail back. If you fail to appear, the court keeps the money.

It’s an eloquent system. The process enables you to work, to care for your family, and to easily mount a defense. It also saves the taxpayers a substantial amount of money since they aren’t responsible for keeping you fed, healthy, and housed while you wait for your day in court. If you’re unable to cover the cost of your bail, Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles is ready and willing to help out.

The benefits of working with Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles include:

• 24/7 Bail bond service

The bail bond process has been in place for a long time and has always worked well but it could change.

California voters have the option of changing how the state’s cash bail system functions. In 2018, Governor Jerry Brown passed a bill, Senate Bill 10, that did away with the current cash bail program and replacing with a risk assessment program that would be used to determine if an individual should be released from jail prior to their trial. The idea was that the changes made it easier for low-income prisoners who lacked the funds and connections needed to bail themselves out to be released.

If California residents pass Senate Bill 10 during the November 2020 election, it would do away with the current trend of judges simply looking at the charges filed against a person when setting a bail amount. Instead, the type of charges, the individual’s ties to the community, and their background would also be taken into consideration during the bail hearing.

If voters pass Senate Bill 10, it will be interesting to see if other states explore the possibility of passing similar legislation.

If you or someone you love has been charged with a crime and you lack the means needed to cover the bail yourself, your best course of action is contacting Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles. We’re ready and willing to help you out.

When you contact us, you’ll work with an experienced bail bond agent who will explore the conditions of your bail and discuss a plan to get you released from jail. The initial consultation is free and completely free of any obligation.

Did You Know There Is a Difference between Jail and Prison?

Did You Know There Is a Difference between Jail and Prison?

For most people, there are a lot of unknowns about getting arrested. Most people don’t know what exactly happens when someone is arrested, how to deal with bail, or what the difference between jail and prison is. Many people don’t even realize that there is a difference between jail and prison and use the two words interchangeably.

Both jails and prisons hold inmates for a set amount of time until their sentence is up. However, despite their similarities, jails and prisons are not the same thing. Jails are run by local counties and house inmates for short periods. These facilities are often smaller and provide fewer services for the inmates than a prison might. Inmates in jail have either been found guilty of less serious crimes or they are still awaiting their trial.

Prisons, on the other hand, are larger facilities run by either the state or federal government. These facilities hold inmates anywhere from several years to life. Due to this fact, they provide more services for the inmates housed within. The inmates housed in these facilities have been found guilty of serious offenses.

When someone you know has been arrested and is awaiting trial, they are being held in jail. They can be released if you pay the bail, which will likely cost several thousands of dollars. Luckily, you can get a bail bond that only costs 10% of that amount by contacting Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles. Here at Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles, we provide all of the following for our clients:
