3 Questions to Ask Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles

3 Questions to Ask Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles

It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to secure bail for yourself or for a loved one, it’s always a stressful process. The sheer amount of stress you’re dealing with combined with the underlying sense of urgency you feel can result in some costly mistakes. More than one person has inadvertently found themselves dealing with a bail bonds business that was more interested in running a scam than actually bailing anyone out of jail. That’s why we urge every single person who contacts us to take a few minutes to ask some questions about the legitimacy of our business.

There are a few questions we wish every single person who contacted us for free bail bonds advice would ask.

Is Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles Properly Licensed?

One of the first things you should ask any California bail bonds business is if they are properly licensed to offer bail bonds in the state. We promise we won’t be offended when you ask for our business license number or if you decide to use the Department of Insurance website to verify the information.

How Much will the Bail Cost?

By the time you contact us, you should already know how much money is required to bail yourself or a loved one out of jail. The good news is that if you decide to use Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles you don’t have to come up with the entire amount.

Traditionally, we charge 10% of the amount needed. That’s our “fee.” The good news is that many people who contact us are eligible for a 20% discount. You can rest assured that when we tell you how much of the bail money you have to come up with on your own, that’s the final amount. We never charge hidden fees.

How Long Will it Take for Us to Get you Out of Jail?

You should ask us how long it will take for us to complete the paperwork and get you or your loved one out of jail. While we would love to give you an exact time, we’re really not able to. 

We can tell you that we work quickly. We offer both phone and online bail bonds approvals which helps speed up the process. During the 30 years we’ve been posting bail in California, we’ve managed to streamline the process so that we’re ready to post the bail shortly after you’ve signed a bail bonds contract.

The good news is that the sooner you contact us, the sooner we can post your bail, and the sooner you’ll be able to sleep in your own bed.

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. It shouldn’t take long before you learn how much bail you owe. If you don’t know anyone who can cover the amount, your best course of action is contacting Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles.

Using Collateral to Help Secure Bail

Using Collateral to Help Secure Bail

Bail is a funny thing. In some situations, bail is nothing more than a signature on a piece of paper. In other cases, a judge sets a bail that is six figures, way more than you can ever hope to pay.

Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles is a local bail bonds business that has the resources needed to cover your bail when you simply can’t afford to. All we ask is that you pay us 10%, which we keep. Once you’ve come up with 10% of the bail, we pay the additional 90% and you’re released from jail. When your case reaches its conclusion, we get to keep the 10% you paid.

Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles is a family-owned bail bonds company. We’ve worked hard to hone a reputation for providing discrete and fair services for each of our clients. We understand that a one size fits all approach to bail doesn’t work. You are a unique person with unique needs. Our desire to help as many people as possible cover their bail prompted us to create flexible bail bonds plans. Our program includes:

• Flexible payment plans
• No hidden fees
0% Interest payment plans
• No collateral with a working signer

 
The problem some people run into when they’re trying to cover bail is that they lack the credit history of financial means to meet our needs. That doesn’t mean you’re out of luck. It just means we have to work even harder to come up with a plan that works for both you and us. In many cases, that means you providing some sort of collateral.

The point of collateral is that it provides us with a little security. If you default on your bail bonds payments or if you fail to appear in court and forfeit your bail, we get to keep whatever you signed over as collateral.
Items people use as collateral when they sign a bail contract includes:

• Real estate
• Vehicles
• Electronic equipment
• Guns
• Jewelry

 
To use something as collateral, you have to prove both its value and that you own the item. We can’t accept anything that you’re still paying for, such as a mortgaged house. Once the case has made it through the court system and the court returns our money, we return the item to you.

Bail Denied! Can You Reapply

Bail Denied! Can You Reapply

The last thing you want is for a judge to tell you that they’re denying bail. Getting denied to pay bail means you’ll have to sit in a jail cell until your court case reaches its conclusion, which in some situations can take more than a year. During that time you won’t be able to work, provide for your family, care for pets, or meet with your lawyer outside of the jail.

Common Reasons Bail is Denied

The good news is that a judge can’t deny you bail because they happen to be having a bad day. They must have a good reason for doing so. Common reasons bail is denied include:

• You’re not a U.S. resident
• You have a history of drug or alcohol abuse
• You previously jumped bail
• Your actions indicate that you could be a danger to the general public
• The judge is worried you’ll do something illegal if you’re released from jail
• You’re being charged with a repeat offense

 
There are some crimes that prompt judges to automatically deny bail. It’s not unusual for judges to deny bail in murder cases or in when the charge involves an act of terrorism.

There have been cases when it wasn’t the judge, but rather the police who told a person that bail was denied. This often happens if the charges involve crimes that don’t have a predetermined bail attached to them. The police can’t set bail, so they have to keep you in jail until a time is selected for your bail hearing.

Is Reapplying for Bail an Option After it Has Been Denied

If you’re told your bail has been denied and you haven’t had a formal bail hearing, set up a meeting with your lawyer to discuss the situation. The lawyer will take the steps needed to make sure that you are ready for a bail hearing. They will also make sure this hearing takes place as quickly as possible. In this type of situation, it is likely that after hearing your case, the judge will set bail for your release.

If you were denied bail at a formal bail hearing, you don’t have many options left.

The first thing you can try is reapplying to appear before the local magistrate again in a fresh bail hearing. The only way this particular hearing will happen is if something has changed that could alter the judge’s mind. The “fresh circumstances” needed to apply for a second bail hearing don’t happen very often.

Your second choice is to take your case to the California Supreme Court. This takes time, usually more than a month since the court has a massive backlog of cases they have to get through before they can deal with yours.

COVID-19 and Bail Bonds

COVID-19 and Bail Bonds

The pandemic has hit everyone hard. Money is tight. Emotions are high. No one is entirely certain what their legal rights actually are. There is no getting around the fact that this has changed the judicial process.

COVID-19 has made the idea of sitting in jail while you work your way through the incredibly slow legal process even less desirable than it was before the pandemic. Now, staying in jail while waiting for your trial to take place not only means potentially losing your job and being unable to care for your family, but it also increases the likelihood of your contracting the virus. A recent batch of tests revealed that in a single Ohio prison, 80% of the inmates have contracted COVID-19.

It doesn’t matter how careful corrections officers are, the close quarters’ cellmates have to endure makes it nearly impossible to keep the environment free of the coronavirus. Each time someone is arrested, there is a chance they’re introducing the virus into the environment. Paying bail and getting released is the best way you can continue to social distance and remain healthy.

Understanding the importance of getting released from jail has triggered an interest grassroots movement in Greene County, Al. A group of concerned citizens have banned together and worked hard to raise money that is used to help cover the bail of individuals who have been charged with a crime. As a direct result of their efforts, the group has managed to get two people released on bail.

The work that the group is doing is fantastic, but the odds of them being able to help you walk out of jail cell and return home are incredibly slim.

Different Types of Bail Bonds

Different Types of Bail Bonds

Anyone who watches procedural shows knows that a bail bond is an amount of money you pay the court so you are released from jail while you await a trial. What many of us don’t realize is that there are actually several different types of bail bonds.

Personal Reconnaissance Bond

Procedural shows give the impression that bail is always a massive amount of money. The truth is that in many cases, individuals are assigned a personal reconnaissance bond. When this happens, the individual simply signs a paper stating that they agree to make all court-ordered appearances and can walk out the door without paying the court a dime. In some cases, stipulations, such as not leaving town, staying away from certain people, or not drinking alcohol are part of the personal reconnaissance bond.

Cash Bond

Shortly after you’re arrested, you’ll go before a judge who will listen to both the prosecutor and your defense attorney and access how much money is needed to secure your release from jail. Once the amount is determined, all you have to do is pay it and you’re free to return to your family and job. When the amount isn’t large, many people opt to pay it themselves. Since most courthouses don’t accept anything but cash, this is called a cash bond.  

Surety Bond

In a perfect world, you have enough cash in your bank account to bail yourself out. Sadly, the world isn’t perfect and often the cash you do have is needed to handle things like the cost of a lawyer and legal fees. When you lack the necessary cash, a company like Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles steps in and helps you out. In exchange for paying us 10% of the ordered bail amount, we’ll post the entire amount.

When you find yourself in need of a surety bond, you need to ask lots of questions. These questions include:

• Will you be charged interest?
• Do you need a co-signer?
• Exactly how much money is needed upfront?

 
It’s important to remember that once a bail bond company covers your bail, you’ve entered into a formal agreement with them. You’re promised the business that you will attend all of your court appearances.

Federal Bail Bond

When you’re charged with a federal crime, you get a federal bail bond. Despite how they’re portrayed on television, federal bail bonds differ from state and county bail bonds. While there are always exceptions, many federal bail bonds are the Federal court is more interested in imposing restrictions that are designed to ensure the defendant appears in court. It’s rare for a bail bondsman to be asked to help someone with a Federal bail bond unless they are also facing state or county charges as well.

If you or a loved one has been arrested, it is in your best interest to ask your lawyer to explain the details of your bail. If you need help covering your bail, contact Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles at 877-793-2254.

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:

• 24/7 Bail bond service
• 20% Discount
• Phone approvals
• 0% Interest payment plans

What Are a Person’s Responsibilities While Out on Bail?

What Are a Person’s Responsibilities While Out on Bail?

When a person is out on bail, they aren’t entirely in the clear. Yes, they are free from their confinement within a jail cell and can resume some semblance of normalcy, however, there are still things they need to consider. People who are out on bail have responsibilities that they need to see to. Failing to do that could lead to more trouble and jail time.

When a person is out on bail, they need to remember that they are still going to court. They are not free of the charges that were brought against them. They are simply free of being held in jail during the trial. While out on bail, a person needs to prioritize their court dates above anything else. Failing to show up in court is a great way to get re-arrested.

Another important responsibility while out on bail is making sure that the bail bond payments are paid on time. When bailed out with a bail bond, a person signs a contract stating that they will pay the bail agent a set amount, typically 10%, of the full bail price in return for being bailed out. Once the person is released from jail, they owe that money to their bail agent for holding up their end of the deal.

Lastly, a person out on bail needs to be responsible for their daily choices. They should be on their best behavior. If they do anything to upset the law, they could find themselves right back behind bars with an even smaller chance of getting out again. Nobody wants that.

If you want help that you can rely on, then you need to talk to one of the bail agents here at Cal Bail Bonds in Los Angeles. Our expert bail agents are available to talk to 24/7 and will be more than happy to help guide you through the process of rescuing a loved one from jail. They will happily answer any questions that you might have about the bail bond process.

• 24/7 Bail bond service
