The Right to Post Bail

montara-bailbonds3

You have the right to remain silent. This is the first clause of the Miranda Rights, a set of rights the police must read aloud to anyone they arrest.

You have the right to an attorney. This is the second clause of the Miranda Rights.

The purpose of the Miranda Rights is to ensure that defendants are fully aware of their rights. Even if they are being arrested and accused of committing a crime, defendants have rights. Years ago, when the police were not required to read the Miranda Rights, the validity of some defendant’s confessions, and even the police’s interrogation methods, were questioned. Some defendants were not aware they did not have to answer the police’s questions.

Today with the Miranda Rights in place, there is less room for error and confusion, and more room for a j...

Bail Bonds over Cash Bail – Here Is Why

mountain-view-bailbonds3

Bail bonds are an alternative method to posting cash bail. Cash bail can be in the tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars. The full amount must be paid in order for the defendant to be released.

Bail bonds, on the other hand, offer more flexibility and breathing room.

• A professional bail agent facilitates the entire process.
• Only 10% of the full bail amount will be paid.
• This 10% is paid off on a customized payment plan.
• Only paperwork needs to be completed for the defendant to be freed; the payment plan extends beyond the defendant’s release date.

The main catch is that with cash bail, this money can be refunded, but the 10% for a bail bond is not refundable. Nonetheless, most people post bail using bail bonds because there is more guidance and assistance...

Can Defendants Travel While Out On Bail?

millbrae-bailbonds2

One of the more common concerns with bail bond release terms is whether or not the defendant is allowed to travel while out on bail. The answer can vary from defendant to defendant, and depends on the situation. Here are some examples:

Jane, out on bail, has no travel restrictions. This means she is allowed to travel to a neighboring city, another state, even out of the country. She just needs to make sure she shows up for her court appointments.

Gavin just posted bail and has travel restrictions. He is a California resident, and is only allowed to travel to Oregon, Washington, and Arizona for family, friends, and business. Any states other than those are off-limits. If he violates these terms, he can be taken back into custody...

Mini Celebrations: Relief for an Arrest Situation

mission-district-bailbonds2

Breaking up a long, stressful situation with small celebrations can be very helpful in alleviating pain and the stress, but the celebrations should only go so far. Say your loved one has been arrested, just think about how long it is going to be until this whole thing blows over. Think about the stress and tension. What about a little celebration after each step in the process? It really is a big deal. Like we said, keep the celebrations little. Nothing too crazy, like getting drunk or splurging on a trip. The first mini celebration should come after posting bail.

Out on Bail, Will More Likely Appear For Court

daly-city-bailbonds2

Did you know that a person who is out on bail is more likely to show up for their court dates? One of the biggest reasons this is true is that their current release could not have happened if it were not for the bail bond co-signer and/ or anyone who pledged collateral.

If the defendant fails to appear in court, the co-signer feels the consequences and the collateral is taken away. So loved ones are betting on the defendant to show up in court; the defendant does not want to let their loved ones down. They want to prove to them, and to everyone, that they can handle this situation maturely and responsibly. This is why they are more likely to show up for court.

When you bail a friend or family member out of jail, you become a part of that person’s support group...
