Bail and Bail Bonds Explained

Bail information in Palmdale

While we always tries to make plans, life has a way of messing those plans up. Sometimes this is done in little ways, like leaving your cell phone someplace and having to go back for it.

California Could Legalize Street Vendors across the State

California Could Legalize Street Vendors across the State

In many cities across the state of California, there are restrictions and laws against street side vendors. Many cities, such as Los Angeles, make it a criminal act to sell food without a license, which means any street vendor caught doing so could face jail time. Some people feel that this is too harsh of a punishment, which is why Senator Ricardo Lara has a new proposal aimed at changing that.

Senator Lara’s proposed law would make it so that cities all across the state could not regulate or ban street vendors unless the city has a licensing system in place that meets several requirements that would be set by the state. This new state law would overwrite any city laws and ordinances that do not mesh with it.

Cities would also not be permitted to prevent vendors from selling in parks...

Alcohol: Men Vs Women

Alcohol Men Vs Women

When it comes to processing alcohol, men and women are entirely different. Contrary to common belief, men and women of almost the same height and weight do not experience similar effects after consuming equal amounts of alcohol. Studies prove that women are more adversely affected by alcohol abuse. That makes it very necessary for women to understand this particular difference between them and men and reduce their alcohol consumption accordingly.

Just like men and women are differently affected by various diseases, alcohol-related ailments also exhibit varying levels. Studies and researches conducted over the last couple of decades prove without a doubt that quite a number of ill-health consequences of alcohol abuse develop faster in women than in men.

In general, men are able to handle...

Dating Apps Influence

Dating Apps Influence

In today’s modern and fast paced world it makes sense that we’ve started online dating and using dating apps. We used to write love letters, now we write witty text messages. Dating apps help get us out there. They’re a great way to let the digital world know that you’re ready to mingle. Unfortunately, dating apps seem to have lessened the meaning of a relationship since we can easily swipe right on to the next person.

We live in the age where it’s not embarrassing to have an online dating profile. It’s normal for a person to have multiple profiles across different sites. There is a dating app for just about any diverse groups. For example, if you like to smoke marijuana, there’s a dating app for that...

California’s 2018 Minimum Wage

California’s 2018 Minimum Wage

Well, it’s the start of a new year, and for Californians that means another increase in the state’s minimum wage. This increase was brought on by Governor Brown’s signing of SB 3 back in 2016. The bill made it so that at the start of each new year, the minimum wage would increase slightly until it reached $15 per hour in 2022.

This year, the minimum wage increases to $11 an hour for all companies that have 26 or more employees. Companies that have 25 or less employees have a minimum wage of $10.50 an hour. The reason for the pay difference between these two companies is that the smaller ones will likely have a harder time being able to afford the pay increase for their employees. This is why the state of California has given smaller companies an extra year to reach the goal minimu...

Types of Pleas a Defendant can Enter for Court

call-palmdale-bailbonds

When a person is arrested for committing a crime, they will have an arraignment hearing before the actual trial begins. At a defendant’s arraignment hearing, they learn the charges that are being filed against them. The defendant will then be asked to enter a plea, which they will do so after consulting with their lawyer.

There are 3 options for entering a plea:

    Guilty
    When a defendant pleads guilty, they are conceding and admitting that they did commit the crime for which they were arrested. They waive all rights. The court must consent to this plea. In this case, no trial happens. The judge will announce the consequences and punishment.

    Not Guilty
    When a defendant pleads not guilty, they are maintaining their innocence in the matter...

The Role of a Bail Bond Co-Signer

call-palmdale-bailbonds

When a defendant is in the process of bailing out of jail with a bail bond, they will need a loved one to commit to the role of a co-signer. The co-signer is tasked with making sure the defendant shows up for their scheduled court date. How involved they are with this task varies from family to family, as it depends on how mature, responsible, and honest the defendant is. One defendant can get him or herself to court without trouble, while another may attempt to flee the city, which is when the co-signer really needs to step in.

If the defendant does not show up for court, their bail can be revoked and a warrant for their arrest will be issued. Additionally, any collateral that was pledged will not be returned to the owner.

Agreeing to the role of a bail bond co-signer definitely has i...
