If this is your first time attempting to bail someone out of jail, you are probably curious as to how the bail process works. Bail is not a topic of conversation that comes up in normal situations. This leads to many people not knowing how bail works. Luckily, the experts here at Bail Bonds in San Francisco know everything there is to know about bail.
To start, bail is assigned to a person after they are arrested. A judge determines the bail amount based off of several factors. These factors are:
• The crime committed.
• The person’s criminal record.
• The chance of the person running when out on bail.
• The threat the person may present to the community.
The judge uses these factors to determine the person’s bail amount.
Once a person has been assigned bail, he or she can be ba...
This is a question that many people have. Most people have heard of it, and many have seen it on TV, but they still do not have a very good idea of what bail is. Even on TV, bail is often toned down or glossed over so that the show can focus on the story at hand. This is how so many people know about bail, but have no idea how it actually works.
Bail starts when a person is arrested. This is when a person is assigned their bail amount. Typically, the amount is determined by a judge reading off of a bail schedule. A bail schedule is just a list of every crime possible, and what the bail should be for each crime. Every county has its own unique bail schedule...
Fall is finally upon us. The warm, sometimes unbearably hot, days of summer are behind us as the days begin to shorten. The air becomes cooler, but not in an unpleasant way. The leaves on the trees begin to change their colors, and migrations begin. Fall is a magical time of the year and represents changing conditions. The state of California has a lot to offer its residents during this time of year, provided you know where to look.
• Eastern Sierra Nevada Hot Springs – The Eastern side of the Sierra Nevada’s along Highway 395 between Mammoth Lakes and Bridgeport offer beautiful fall colors and plenty of hot springs. However, finding the springs that are safe enough to dip into can be tricky, and often requires talking with the area locals to find the best, secluded spots...
As Californians, many of us know that the “Big One” could be just around the corner. We have to live in a constant state of preparedness. This means having plans for what to do in the event of an earthquake, and having supplies ready. The following is a list of supplies that every household should have stashed away in a safe place where everybody knows, just in case.
• 3 gallons of water per person. This should last each individual 3 days.
• A 3 day supply of non-perishable foods
• Baby food, diapers, and wipes if you have a baby
• Pet food and extra water if you have a pet
• A can opener
• Cups, utensils, and plates
• First aid kit
• Fire extinguisher
• Battery powered, or crank powered, radio and flashlight. Plus extra batteries.
• A whistle
• Portable phone charger
Everyone typically has some sort of daily routine that they follow, they get up, go to work, run errands, relax at the end of the day, and then do it all again the following day. Rarely is there ever any time to divert from that schedule. Even if there is time to spare, the person probably doesn’t have the funds to spare.
These are just a few of the reasons why the arrest of a loved one can be so problematic for people. Not only does it interrupt their daily schedule, it threatens their bank account as well. Most people do not have thousands of dollars just lying around to be spent on bail. It will take them months to come up with the thousands of dollars needed for the bail. They do not want to make their loved one’s sit in jail that long.
