How Can I Pay For Bail?

By | Carls Bail Bonds

Los Angeles Bail Bonds provides affordable bail bonds for defendants who are held in California jails. Bail bonds are an alternative method to posting bail and costs only 10% of the full bail amount. On top of that, this 10%, called the premium, is paid in increments over a payment plan, custom created to meet your financial needs. Here are the different ways you can pay for the bail bond:

Cash and checks – Bring it in or mail it.

Debit and credit – Swing by an office to make a transaction, or go online and use our convenient and secure online payment portal.

Tax return – Technically this would just fall under any of the above because once your tax return clears and is in your bank account, you would then proceed to pay for the bail bond in one of the above ways. Your tax return becomes extra money to you, which means it can be used to pay for your bail bond.

Bail bonds are the more convenient, affordable, and flexible way to posting bail and Los Angeles Bail Bonds will prove it.

How Can I Lower Bail?

By | Carls Bail Bonds

Bail is money owed to court in order for a defendant to be released from jail. The amount owed depends on the crime that the defendant is being accused of, any prior criminal record that he or she has, and their financial ability to pay for bail. Bail is set considerably high to encourage the defendant to show up for their court dates because if they do, their bail money can be refunded to them.

There is no way to formally lower the bail amount. A lawyer cannot do this, and neither can a bail bondsman. A defendant can petition the judge to reconsider the bail amount, but it is extremely unlikely the judge will change it.

What can be done to change up how bail can be paid is to hire a bail bondsman. By doing this, the defendant does not pay the court 100% of the bail. Rather, he or she, and anyone on his or her behalf, pays the bail bondsman 10% of the full bail amount over a fixed amount of time. A customized payment plan will be drawn up that is put together around the financial situation of those who will be paying. Unlike cash bail though, the 10% paid to the bail bondsman is not refunded.

Even with bail bonds, the bail amount itself is still set in the high tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars range, but the defendant use a different method to pay for the bail. With a bail bond, that high number shrinks and becomes much more manageable.

The Right to Post Bail

By | Carls Bail Bonds

You have the right to remain silent. This is the first clause of the Miranda Rights, a set of rights the police must read aloud to anyone they arrest.

You have the right to an attorney. This is the second clause of the Miranda Rights.

The purpose of the Miranda Rights is to ensure that defendants are fully aware of their rights. Even if they are being arrested and accused of committing a crime, defendants have rights. Years ago, when the police were not required to read the Miranda Rights, the validity of some defendant’s confessions, and even the police’s interrogation methods, were questioned. Some defendants were not aware they did not have to answer the police’s questions.

Today with the Miranda Rights in place, there is less room for error and confusion, and more room for a just case.

We hope you will never need our services, but if you, or a loved one of yours, are ever arrested, you can post bail quickly and affordably with a bail bond from us, Los Angeles Bail Bonds. At Los Angeles Bail Bonds, we believe in the right to bail and that everyone is innocent until proven guilty. These are the rights we can help you protect.

Out on Bail, Will More Likely Appear For Court

By | Carls Bail Bonds

Did you know that a person who is out on bail is more likely to show up for their court dates? One of the biggest reasons this is true is that their current release could not have happened if it were not for the bail bond co-signer and/ or anyone who pledged collateral.

If the defendant fails to appear in court, the co-signer feels the consequences and the collateral is taken away. So loved ones are betting on the defendant to show up in court; the defendant does not want to let their loved ones down. They want to prove to them, and to everyone, that they can handle this situation maturely and responsibly. This is why they are more likely to show up for court.

When you bail a friend or family member out of jail, you become a part of that person’s support group. You will help make sure your loved one gets to all of his or her court appearances on time, thus ensuring your loved one makes good choices.

What Happens During Booking?

When you hear that someone is arrested, you will probably hear that they will be booked. What does that mean and what do you need to know about it?

Booking occurs right after a person is arrested and taken back to the police station or jail. There are a series of steps in the booking process:

• Mugshots will be taken
• As will Fingerprints
• The defendant’s name and accused crime will be noted
• A full body search will be
• The suspect’s clothes will be confiscated and replaced with a jumpsuit
• Any personal items will be confiscated
• Any outstanding warrants for the suspect will be checked for
• DNA samples will be taken

Picture This

Picture your warm, comforting home.

Now picture jail. It is likely you are thinking along the lines of cold, dingy, dirty, cement cells and an overall, unpleasant experience.

If you were arrested, wouldn’t you rather bail out of jail and return home, than live in jail during your entire trial?

Now think about how your loved one, who was actually arrested, feels in this situation. They are eligible to post bail, but they can use your help.
