What to Expect if You are Arrested as a Minor

call-palmdale-bailbonds

Arrested at 17 vs 18

The upside to turning 18 years old is finishing high school, getting ready for college, and officially becoming an adult free to make your own decisions. The downside to turning 18, is becoming the adult that needs to learn how to calculate decisions and evaluate possible outcomes before making a move. Rewards are great when things go right, but when things go wrong, consequences can be much harsher than they would have been if this person was only 17. In addition, the proper steps to rectify the situation will take extra time, effort, and possibly money.

Take for example: getting arrested.

If a minor, 17 years old or younger, is arrested, they are released back to the custody of their parents or guardians...

  • If there is a dedicated bike lane, the bicyclist must be in that lane unless they are passing, making a left, or avoiding a dangerous/ hazardous condition.
  • Bicyclists are to ride in the same direct...

Why You Should Pay for Uber or Lyft

call-palmdale-bailbonds

There are so many ways to avoid drinking and driving these days, so why do people still do it? Instead of drinking and driving, you can walk if you are very close to home and the walk is safe, you can take a bus so long as you do not act drunk and belligerent, you can arrange for a friend or family member to pick you up, or you can call an Uber, Lyft, or taxi.

Spending $15-$20 on a ride-sharing service is more appealing than shelling out thousands of dollars for a DUI arrest. You read that right, a first-time DUI offense can be in the tens of thousands of dollars. What factors into that outrageous cost? Bail, lawyers, getting your car back from the impound lot, increased insurance, and fees for getting your license back. That is the minimum...
