You Weren’t Expecting to Need Bail

Bail is not something that most people plan on needing. After all, to plan on needing bail would be to plan on getting arrested. Since no one ever does that, no one is ever really prepared to deal with bail. Luckily, there are professionals out there who know everything about bail, and are willing to share that knowledge with clients.

Since 1987, Carls Bail Bonds has been helping Californians rescue their friends and family members from jail. Our bail agents are some of the very best in the state of California. They know everything about the bail process and are more than happy to help clients deal with bail. When you come to us for bail help, you will not have to face this alone.

Our agents will walk you through each step, from filling out the paperwork all the way to when your loved one’s court dates are. You will never be left in the dark. If you ever have questions, don’t hesitate to ask. Our bail agents will gladly answer them for you. They are here for you.

Aside from just helping you post bail, our Carls Bail Bonds also works to make the bail as affordable as possible. For starters, our bail bonds only cost 10% of the bail that they are for. In addition, we provide discounts for clients who qualify. To get 20% off the price of the bail bond, one of the co-signers needs to:

• Be a member of the military.
• Be a member of AARP.
• Be a union member.
• Be a homeowner.
• Have a private attorney.

So long as one of those requirements is met, you can qualify for the discount.

Needing bail isn’t something that anyone ever really plans on. However, this does not mean that a person can’t post bail. All it means is that they will need a little help. Carls Bail Bonds can provide that help. For over 30 years we have made posting bail both easy and affordable for Californians. Let us do the same for you.

The Roomba Burglar of Washington County, Oregon

By | Bail Bond Articles, Bail Bond Blog, Bail Bond News

The Roomba Burglar of Washington County, Oregon

There is no doubt that police officers have to deal with a lot of different situations varying in range from nonlife threatening, to life threatening. As helpful as it would be to know what kind of situation they are heading into with each call, but that isn’t always possible. Often times, they get a little bit of info and have to rush in, otherwise someone could get hurt, which is something that no one wants.

In instances where only a little bit of information is available, police officers have to make do with what they are given. They have to hurry into a scenario expecting the worst possible outcome, but hoping for the best. This was the case recently when a 911 call came into the Washington County Sheriff’s Department in Oregon.

An Intruder Barricaded in a Bathroom

On Monday, April 8th, a 911 call came into the Washington County Sheriff’s Department stating that a burglar had broken into a woman’s home and barricaded himself in her bathroom. Officers responded accordingly to the call and rushed to the scene with the intent of helping keep the woman safe from the unknown intruder who could be armed.

Officers arrived with a K-9 officer, ready to get the intruder out of the home. When they arrived, they could hear rustling in the bathroom and see shadows moving under the door. They ordered the intruder to come out with their hands up, but no response ever came from behind the door.

Finally, the officers drew their weapons, and opened the door to the bathroom, prepared to takedown the would-be burglar. They weren’t prepared for what they found. The bathroom floor was perfectly clean and completely empty save for a lone Roomba. For those unaware, a Roomba is a small, robotic vacuum cleaner.

It quickly became clear that the poor vacuum cleaner must have accidently closed the door on itself while doing its job, thereby trapping itself within the room. This explained why it never responded to calls to come out with its hands up. While robotic, it doesn’t actually have hands, and it’s advanced enough to talk. If officers hadn’t come to the poor thing’s rescue, it may have died in there. Luckily, that’s nothing a good charging can’t fix, but still. The robot was probably very thankful to be rescued.

No charges were filed, since there was no real culprit, and the woman honestly thought someone was in her home. The case has been closed, but the officers did take a picture of the “culprit” of the incident. The officers then shared the incident on social media.

Everything Worked Out

This is a perfect example of how police officers and sheriffs don’t always know what they are getting into when they respond to a call. These officers were expecting something very different when they answered a call about an intruder barricaded in a woman’s home. Things could have taken a much worse turn than they did. Instead, officers were left with a very fun and memorable tale.

Stories like this are always entertaining to hear. Whether it’s about an officer encounter that didn’t go as expected, or about a robot vacuum that somehow managed to cause some trouble, silly stories like this can put smiles on faces. Do you have a good story about a police officer, or a wayward Roomba?

A Quick Overview of What to Expect if You are Ever Arrested

By | Carls Bail Bonds

You may be able talk your way out of a traffic ticket, but there is no such thing as talking your way out of an arrest. You can try, but it will not work. Never try to physically resist arrest, as that will only make the matter worse.

After you are arrested, you will be booked. This is where your fingerprints and mugshot will be taken, and you will change your clothes and relinquish the items that were on you during your arrest, among a few other routine procedures. After booking, you will wait a maximum of 2 days, in California, for your arraignment hearing, which is when the charges against you are formally announced and filed. The judge at the arraignment hearing will announce the bail you can pay in order to be released from jail during the duration of your trial.

Whatever the cost of bail is for you, you have two options:

• Come up with all of the cash to pay for it on your own.
• Hire a bail bond agency like Carls Bail Bonds, whom you will pay 10% of your bail to over a payment plan. You can forget about the other 90% of the bail in this second option, unless you fail to make your court appointments.

Learn more about the bail bond options and see how they can get you out of jail faster and more affordably by talking to a friendly representative at Carls Bail Bonds anytime.

Our agents are available 24/7, both online and at (866) 855-3186.

Still Time to Use your Tax Return for Bail

By | Carls Bail Bonds

Most of us by now, have had our tax return directly deposited in the bank. Sweet! “Free” money! Have you thought about what you are going to do with the money? Will you save it? Will you spend it? Will you divvy it up for various needs and wants? What about making the bail bond payment that you have scheduled?

Tax return money is acceptable money for bail bond payments. As soon as the transaction has cleared and the money is deposited into your account, then it is 100% your money to use as you like. Just like you have been paying your previous bail bond payments with your cash, check, or credit or debit card, you can use your tax return money in this way as well.

Even if you are up-to-date on bail bond payments, it never hurts to get ahead or budget ahead. This will be beneficial to you because it is one stressful thing that you can put behind you, sooner, so you can then turn your attention toward other needs.

One of the best things about using a bail bond to get your loved one out of jail is that Carls Bail Bonds will set you up with a custom payment plan. Mark your calendar for when payments are due to avoid falling behind because the consequences are not too friendly.

If you ever need to consult your Carls Bail Bonds agent during the process, they are available and ready to help. Just call (866) 855-3186 or chat with the agent online.

What Determines the Cost of Bail?

By | Carls Bail Bonds

As you are waiting for the formal arraignment of your loved one, here’s some information to help prepare yourself for the outcome.

A judge determines a defendant’s bail based on:

• The crime(s) the defendant is being charged with.
• The criminal history of the defendant.
• The defendant’s ties and relationships within the community.
• The defendant’s financial ability to post bail.

These are the 4 biggest components. The judge takes this information into consideration, alongside what their bail schedule outlines. For those of you who do not know, a bail schedule is list that outlines bail according to the crime.

Besides this incident, if the defendant is squeaky-clean and shows good faith, meaning they will not be a burden for the duration of trial, their bail will not need to be too high.

We at Carls Bail Bonds cannot tell you exactly what to expect at an arraignment. We are not the ones who determine how much bail will cost, nor can we have it lowered for you. What we can do is work with you on a bail bond and customizable payment plan once you are aware of the bail amount, since our premium is 10% of the full bail amount. That 10% is all you need to pay; we will take care of the rest.

Carls Bail Bonds agents are always available to chat and provide free consultations. We can be reached online, and at (866) 855-3186. We will not let you down.

How to Tell Your Child About Their Parent’s Arrest

By | Carls Bail Bonds

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.

We Cannot Lower Bail but We Can Bail You Out Affordably

By | Carls Bail Bonds

It is not often that a judge will reduce a person’s bail after setting it. The judge is the only person who can lower bail; not even a lawyer can lower a defendant’s bail. Although it is rare for bail to be reduced, it does happen. This was the case recently in a matter involving the police shooting of a Bay Area man. The man’s original bail was set at $2 million, but was later lowered to $105 thousand after the judge reviewed body camera footage, revealing more truths and facts than were originally reported.

Because the majority of defendants will not be able to get their bail lowered, the best situation for them is to post bail using a bail bond from Carls Bail Bonds. This allows the defendant to pay for only 10% of the full bail amount over a set amount of weeks or months. This flexibility provides financial relief for the defendant and his or her loved ones.

Yes, Use Your Tax Return for Bail Money

By | Carls Bail Bonds

Before you go spending all the money you got from your tax return, think about some wiser possible uses for this money. Things like rent, utility bills, or even your bail bond payments. These are bills that you should never fall behind on and at this moment, your bail bond payments may even out-prioritize your rent.

Your recent arrest is the reason you have bail bond payments to make. Instead of living in jail until your trial, you posted bail with a bail bond from Carls Bail Bonds. This allowed you to be released from jail and return home to go about your normal life. A bail bond costs only 10% of the full bail amount and you are set up on a payment plan so you pay off that 10% over the course of several months. If you fall behind on a payment, your bail could be revoked and you can be taken back into custody. You do not want that, and neither do we

That is why, at Carls Bail Bonds, we suggest that if you get a tax return, you apply this money towards your bail bond payments so you stay right on track. If you have any questions related to bail or bail bonds, please don’t hesitate to contact you bail agent at Carls Bail Bonds anytime.
