Don’t Spend Spring Break In Jail

call palmdale-bail-bonds-

Spring break for colleges is coming up in the next few weeks and already many are planning how they are going to spend that week. Some will be traveling. Some will return home. Most will be consuming alcohol and many may also get their hands on some illegal drugs

Basically, spring break is a time students want to relax, party, and not worry about school. The personalities range from the low-key type to the crazy wild one. There’s nothing wrong with letting loose and having fun but there are dangers to it and serious consequences if it gets too out of hand.

    ● Not all college students are legally old enough to drink.
    Illegal drugs are illegal to everyone.
    ● Drinking and driving is never a good idea, even if they are under the legal BAC limit.
    ● Mixing alcohol and drugs can...

Bail Is Not Tax Deductible, Sorry

call acton-bail-bonds-

Although it might seem tax deductible because it’s a payment going to the government, bail is not tax deductible. Bail is a guarantee (like a bribe, essentially) to get a defendant to appear in court for a crime they are accused of committing. As long as the defendant is compliant with this and his or her other bail release terms and conditions, they they will get their bail money refunded back to them.

In the case that they choose to bail out of jail using a third party bail bond agency, then they will be losing a little bit of money, in the longer run. The defendant pays the bail bond agency 10-15% of their full bail amount and the bail bond agency will then cover the remainder of the price for the time being. The defendant will need to go to court and respect release conditions ju...

Bail Bonds Work And Antelope Valley Bail Bond Store Can Prove It

call-antelope-valley-bail-bonds

Bail bonds as a way of jail release are working. What do we mean by that? We mean that by releasing a defendant from jail, with payment, we are giving the defendant some of his or her life back. They can go to work, hang with friends and family, live comfortably as possible at home. They need to show up for court and make bail bond payments, which can come from themselves or friends or family on their behalf. The defendants are well aware of the risks and consequences they face if they disobey these bail conditions. Because of that, they are more likely to obey those terms, less likely to go against them and cause more trouble.

By getting arrested, the defendant has experienced first hand everything they can lose in a heartbeat. They’ve gone to jail...

Pay For Your Bail Bond, Not Strained Relationships

call palmdale-bail-bonds-

Getting arrested is such a selfish thing to do. How many people are affected by one person’s arrest? Countless friends and family members.Some coworkers or peers.Tax-payers. So, practically everyone.

Sure the one person who is arrested faces the scariest consequences and the toughest recovery period. But those closest to them also deal with consequences. They deal with this strain in their relationship. Trust can be broken and whether it can be put all back together is an unanswered question. Some relationships unfortunately are never the same as they used to be. Others are able to rebuild their relationships again. But nonetheless, getting arrested is selfish because you’re putting others in this awful situation where they too must deal with pain and headache.

People With A Criminal Past Can Always Find Work

call-palmdale-bail-bonds

As we always attempt to reassure our clients, having been arrested is not “the end” for you. For many, getting arrested is simply a mishap. It will go on your record but it will not always haunt you for the rest of your life. People with a criminal past are very much capable of being granted a loan, getting a job, and getting an apartment or home.

For example, recently it was announced that the popular ridesharing service Uber has eased their screening process on their drivers who have a criminal record. According to Uber, this move of theirs is to closer align themselves with the state’s Prop 47. Prop 47, which was passed in 2014, redefines some non-violent felonies as misdemeanors (such as petty theft and forgery), giving offenders a “second chance...
