Did You Know: The Police Need a Warrant to Search Your Cell Phone?

call-acton-bailbonds

In the broadest answer as to whether the police need a warrant to search your cell phone in California, the answer is yes, they need a warrant unless you give your consent. Technically, the police cannot even look at the screen without a warrant, even if they press the button to turn it off.

Cell phones are a major part of our everyday lives now. We have text messages, GPS data, emails, and phone calls on there. Many people keep sensitive information entrusted on their phones. People are very private about their cell phones, even if there is no passcode to unlock it. People often do not want others looking over their shoulder, nor do they want to be that person just peeking over at the person next to them. It is a common-courtesy privacy thing, really.

So call it a major win for well, e...

The Risks and Rights of Bail Bond Co-Signing

call-acton-bailbonds

Bail bond co-signers have a very important role in the release of a defendant. Their role can often also be mentally stressful.

Co-signers are often needed to secure a bail bond. Without a co-signer on a bail bond, the defendant will remain in jail. When a defendant does get a co-signer on their bail bond, then the co-signer has his or her money, valuables, and other collateral at risk. The co-signer must ensure that the defendant shows up for court because if they do not, the collateral that they pledged can be claimed by the bail bond company.

Naturally, the co-signer has rights as well. Most importantly, he or she can withdraw their signature from the bail bond at any time, without consequence to themselves...

Advantages and Benefits to Using Bail Bonds

call-acton-bailbonds

It is easy to see the negatives when you are involved in a bail bond process, whether you are the one who needs out of jail or you are the one helping a loved one out. It is a terrible situation that no one wants to be in, so obviously seeing the light of the situation is pretty hard.

We here at Acton Bail Bond Store want to shed some more light on bail bonds to help you see the advantages and benefits of using bail to get out of jail.

  • Saving money: You are paying only 10% of the full bail amount, leaving you with that 90% to save or spend as you need.
  • Saving time: Cash bail requires 100% payment before the defendant can be released from jail. Gathering this money can take some time. With a bail bond, you pay smaller installments after the defendant’s release.
  • Security and convenience:...

Why Do Bad Things Happen To Good People?

call-acton-bailbonds

That is a very good question that no one will ever have an answer to, and unfortunately, there is no way to prevent bad things happening to good people. Sometimes they are just in the wrong place at the wrong time, and get caught in the middle of something. Sometimes they are trying to do something good, but it just goes wrong.

For instance, Ben is walking down the street and sees a woman and another man, they do not know each other. The man is heckling the woman and following her and she’s clearly upset and trying to get away from him. Ben intervenes and tries convincing to this man to leave the woman alone. This man will not listen and throws a punch at ben because he will not leave the situation alone...

What Happens On Social Media Does Not Stay There, It Comes Back for You

call-acton-bailbonds

So much good has come from the dominance of social media in our lives: we remain connected with friends and family, we have more ways to access news, and we get involved with important matters. At the same time, quite a bit of bad can come from social media. Sometimes, this bad comes from our decision to post a status update or photos, ones that we do not initially think to be something that can be used against us.

For instance:

You are suspected of shooting someone. The police go back on your Instagram and find a photo, posted quite some time ago, of you with the same gun that was used in the crime. That’s incriminating evidence.

You post a photo of your initials carved into a tree. This tree is in a national park and you forgot that defacing nature in national parks is a crime...
