The Difference between Bail and Bail Bonds

The Difference between Bail and Bail Bonds

 

If you are like most people, if someone you cared about got arrested, you’d have a lot of questions. You’ve probably never dealt with getting someone released from jail and have no idea where to begin. That is why you are looking for answers online and luckily for you, Riverside Bail Bonds is here to help.

When looking to get someone released from jail, you are going to need to post their bail. This is to say, you are going to have to pay a certain amount of money to the court or jail in order for your loved one to be released. How much you need to pay is dependent on why your loved one was arrested and their criminal record. However, it is safe to say that the bail will cost several thousand dollars, at least.

This is where most people turn to bail bonds. A bail bond is an agreement between a person and a bail agent. The agent agrees to pay the full bail amount for their client. In return, the client pays a small amount of the bail to the bail agent for their services. At Riverside Bail Bonds, we only ask for 10% of the full bail price.

One of the big differences between bail and bail bonds that people notice, is what happens to the money after the court case is finished. With bail, the full amount, minus some court fees, is returned to whoever posted it in the first place. This is not the case with a bail bond. This is due to the fact that when people pay for a bail bond, they are paying for the bail agent’s service of posting the bail for them. That service is completed once the person is released from jail, and so bail bond money is not returned at the end of the court case.

If you are looking for help posting a loved one’s bail, just contact Riverside Bail Bonds. We are a statewide company that has helped Californians deal with bail for over 30 years. Our expert bail agents can answer all of your questions about the bail process and will happily get your loved one out of jail at an affordable price.

Why Does a Person’s Bail Sometimes Change?

Why Does a Person’s Bail Sometimes Change?

 

Most people don’t deal with bail on a daily basis so it is often a foreign experience for them. Trying to rescue a loved one from jail can be intimidating and frustrating. What can make the whole thing more frustrating is when the price of a loved one’s bail suddenly changes. You were expecting to pay one price, and then suddenly the bail gets raised.

While this doesn’t happen all of the time, it can happen. Sometimes the bail amount goes down, though it can also go up. If the price goes down, you can breathe a sigh of relief. If it does increase, it can be very frustrating indeed.

Bail amounts can change after a person has gone to their first court hearing. This is due to the fact that the judge takes a closer look at the case and determines if the pre-assigned bail is accurate and acceptable for the crime. If the judges agrees with it, then there will be no change. However, the judge may determine that the bail should be raised or lowered.

When the bail price gets altered, the price of the bail bond will reflect that change. This is due to the fact that our bail bonds here at Riverside Bail Bonds cost 10% of the bail they are for. We know this can be frustrating, especially if the price change occurs while we’re setting up the bail bond. This is why you have to act fast when bailing someone out of jail.

We do everything that we can to make posting bail easier for our clients, including:

    • 24/7 Bail bond service
  • 20% Discount
  • Phone approvals
  • 0% Interest payment plans
  • No hidden fees
  • No collateral with working signer

If you want to get your loved one out of jail at a cheap price, contact Riverside Bail Bonds right away. Our agents will work with you to get your loved out of jail as quickly as possible. This way we can avoid any unexpected bail changes and the headaches that come with them.

How Much Does a Bail Bond Cost?

How Much Does a Bail Bond Cost?

One of the biggest questions people have when it comes to bailing someone out of jail is: how much is this going to cost? The answer to that varies from case to case. If a person is tackling the bail on their own, then it will probably cost several thousands of dollars. If the person gets a bail bond from Riverside Bail Bonds, then it will cost significantly less.

Here at Riverside Bail Bonds, our bonds only cost 10% of the bail they are for. This means that when our clients come to us for help, they get a 90% discount off the price of the bail. This can take the cost of a $20,000 bail and turn it into a much more affordable $2,000 bail bond. Who wouldn’t want a discount like this?

Aside from that discount, which all of our clients get, we also have other ways of reducing the cost of bailing someone out. For instance, we provide all of our clients with affordable, 0% interest payment plans. This breaks up the cost of the bail bond and spreads it out over several months.

We also offer special discounts for qualified clients. For instance, clients with approved credit can qualify for 0% down on their bail bond. This means they don’t have pay for the bail bond until a month after their loved one has been released. We also provide a 20% discount of the price of the bail bond for clients and co-signers who:

  • Are union members.
  • Are members of the military.
  • Are members of AARP.
  • Are homeowners.
  • Have private attorneys.

So long as a co-signer meets just one of those requirements, they can qualify for that discount.

While how much does a bail bond cost should be a simple questions to answer, it is hard to give a good answer without knowing the specifics of the case. Luckily, our bail agents are available to offer free consultations 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our bail agents will be more than happy to answer all of your questions about bail.

If you want to know how much a bail bond will cost for your loved one, call (951) 684-4484or click Chat With Us now.

 

What Fireworks Are Legal in California?

What Fireworks Are Legal in California?

June is quickly racing by, bringing us closer and closer to one of the biggest and most important holidays of the year for the nation. There is no denying that the Fourth of July is a huge deal to everyone living in America. After all, the holiday celebrates the country’s founding. The Fourth of July is the United States of America’s birthday, and every citizen wants to celebrate it.

Celebrations vary depending on the location, but they all tend to revolve around a few select practices. For instance, most people through barbeques, small towns love to host parades, and people love to set off fireworks once the skies get dark enough. While all of these things are a part of the usual celebrations for the holiday, one of them can be very dangerous.

Fireworks are a big part of the Fourth of July holiday, however, they can also be extremely dangerous. After all, they are explosive devices. If they are handled improperly, then a person can harm someone or damage property. If a person wants to avoid doing either of those things, they need to celebrate the nation’s birthday safely.

Safe and Sane Vs. Dangerous Fireworks

When a person looks at fireworks, they can easily see how the colorful explosions and flames can be dangerous. One wrong move and the flames or embers of one of the devices could land on someone, or in some dry vegetation. Unfortunately, despite the obvious dangers, a lot of people out there still manage to improperly use fireworks. This has led some states to take action.

For instance, here in California, fireworks use is heavily restricted. The state of California has divided all fireworks into two different types: safe and sane, and dangerous. Safe and sane fireworks are smaller, less dangerous explosives that everyday people can buy at licensed fireworks vendors. Dangerous fireworks are what are typically used in public displays, and require a special license to set off.

It is illegal for a person to set off dangerous fireworks without a license. It is also illegal to sell or give dangerous fireworks to anyone under the age of 18.

For safe and sane fireworks, it is illegal to sell or give them to anyone under the age of 16. It is also illegal to use fireworks in certain areas, especially those that are prone to dry vegetation and wildfires. A person should look up local laws to learn more.

If a person breaks any of these laws regarding fireworks, they will face penalties, including:

  • A misdemeanor.
  • Up to 1 year in jail.
  • A max fine of $1,000.

If a person is found to be in possession of a vast quantity of dangerous fireworks and doesn’t have a license, then they could face felony charges. These charges could come with:

  • Up to 3 years in state prison.
  • A max fine of $50,000.

Why Do We Have Restrictions?

As every California resident has seen over the last few years, wildfires are incredibly destructive. When a wildfire sparks to life in dry vegetation, it can quickly grow out of control. In order to prevent as much devastation as possible, the state of California has enacted dozens of laws. This is arguably one of the bigger reasons for why fireworks are so restricted here in the state.

Aside from the obvious danger to the landscape, fireworks are also just dangerous to people. They can cause small injuries by burning someone, or larger, more traumatic injuries by exploding in a person’s hand. Hundreds of people are sent to the ER every single year on the Fourth of July due to fireworks. Don’t be one of those people, and be safe when using fireworks.

Have Fun and Be Safe

The Fourth of July is meant to be a fun celebration of the birth of the United States. Don’t ruin the celebration by starting a wildfire, burning a neighbor’s house down, or losing a finger. Fireworks, while fun and pretty, are still very dangerous. Even if they are labeled as safe and sane. Fireworks need to be treated with care and respect.

Pretty much everyone here in the US has celebrated the Fourth of July at least once. What are some of your favorite memories of the holiday? Was it the great barbeque food, hanging out with the family, or seeing some spectacular fireworks displays? Tell us all about your favorite Fourth of July memory in the comments down below.

People May Enjoy Fireworks, but Pets Don’t

People May Enjoy Fireworks, but Pets Don’t

The Fourth of July is rapidly approaching, and everyone is anxiously awaiting all of the celebrations. There will be food, parties, games, and fireworks. Celebrating the Fourth of July is a big deal, and a whole lot of fun. Everyone is looking forward to it, well, almost everyone anyways.

While people are all very excited about the Fourth of July and how it is celebrated, there is one group out there that doesn’t enjoy the fireworks. Pets all over the United States have varying feelings about fireworks. Some are indifferent towards them, and others are outright terrified. A pet owner needs to consider this before they go out celebrating for the holiday.

Pets Don’t Appreciate Fireworks

Unlike humans, pets aren’t really big fans of fireworks. The problem usually lies in the fact that they don’t understand what the fireworks and explosions are. They don’t see all of the fuss as fun. All they know is that there are a lot of flashing lights and loud explosions that can shake the house. These sounds are already loud for humans, and are much louder for animals who have better hearing, such as cats and dogs.

In order to make sure that a pet feels safe and secure this Fourth of July, a pet owner needs to be there for their animal. Here are a few tips for pet owners to help their pet stay safe this Fourth of July:

  • For starters, keep dogs and cats indoors for the night. This can greatly reduce the chances of the animals running away. This also means dogs should be walked in the late afternoon, early evening before any fireworks begin.
  • Pets should always have some form of identification on them, whether that is a collar or a microchip. This helps increase the chances of the animal being found again if it does run away.
  • Prepare a safe place or den for the animal in their favorite hiding spot. This way if they are scared, they can go someplace that makes them feel safe and comfortable.
  • Be calm and don’t yell at the animal. Yelling can stress out the animal even more.
  • Don’t force animals to cuddle if they don’t want to. Just allow the animal to do whatever it needs to in order to feel safe.
  • Close curtains and blinds to dampen light and noise coming in from fireworks. Also have a radio or TV playing, but not too loud, to help drown out the sounds.
  • Avoid leaving pets home alone on Fourth of July, this can cause more stress for them, and lead to them creating a mess in the house.
  • Never leave dogs tied up outside on the Fourth of July. That is a sure fire way to stress out the animal, which could lead to it hurting itself or running away.
  • Never take a dog to a firework show, even if they do not seem fazed by fireworks. This could still be a frightening experience for the pooch.

Keep Pets in Mind This Fourth of July

The Fourth of July is meant to be a fun holiday celebrating the nation’s independence. Unfortunately, while setting off fireworks is a fun for people, pets don’t appreciate the loud booms and colorful flashes. Fireworks can be absolutely terrifying for them. When a pet is scared, it is up to their owner to take care of them.

Every pet responds to fireworks a little differently, so each pet will need its own unique solutions to help it stay calm. Do you have a pet that is terrified of fireworks? If so, do you have any tips to help keep it calm that aren’t on this list? Share them in the comments below and help other pet owners keep their furry companies safe and happy this Fourth of July.

People Do What Before Getting Into Public Pools?

People Do What Before Getting Into Public Pools?

With the weather quickly heating up, many people are starting to pull their swimsuits out from their winter hiding spots. With California’s thousands of miles of coastline, there are plenty of places to go to the beach. However, the beach isn’t for everyone. Some people prefer to cool off without having to worry about sand getting everywhere. That is why some people prefer going to a pool.

In addition to the lack of sand at pools, they are often cleaner as well. The water is maintained by humans, instead of being left alone. However, despite the chemicals, mostly chlorine, put into pool water to keep it clean, one recent survey found that pools aren’t always as clean as one would hope.

Public Pools May Not be as Clean as You Think

The clear blue water of pools often looks a heck of a lot cleaner than ocean, lake, or river water. Those waters typically have all kinds of debris floating beneath the surface, making them hazy. Pools lack this haze due to the chemicals put into them to kill bacteria, and the filtration systems in them to pick out the bigger particles like bugs and leaves.

However, despite all of that, pools can still contain bits of harmful bacteria, bacteria that is typically brought in by swimmers. A recent survey conducted by Water Quality and Health Council found that 51% of Americans used pools as a way to rinse off after performing sweat inducing activities.

The survey, which polled 3,100 American adults and had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7%, also found the following information:

• 24% of people would go within a pool within an hour of having diarrhea.
• 40% of adults peed in pools.
• 48% admitted to not showering before entering a pool.
• 53% didn’t know makeup affected the chemistry of the pool.
• 55% didn’t know deodorant affected the chemistry of the pool.
• 64% acknowledge the fact that pools don’t eliminate the need to shower, but use pools as a reason not to shower anyways.

While chlorine does help keep pools cleaner, it isn’t an infinite source of cleanliness. Think of the chlorine in a pool like a bar of soap. Every time it is used to clean something, it becomes smaller and less effective until it is all used up. However, chlorine is not a replacement for soap.

Chlorine keeps pools clean by causing chemical reactions in the water that kill microorganisms and bacteria. By adding other chemicals to the mix, bodily fluids, makeup, and deodorant, a person reduces the strength of the chlorine in the water, thereby reducing its effectiveness.

Help Keep Public Pools Clean

Some of the findings in this survey are more than a bit disgusting. Hopefully, they will serve as a reminder to everyone that there are times when they shouldn’t go swimming, and more than that, they should shower before getting into a pool. Doing so can help keep the water cleaner, longer.

Pools are a great way to beat the summer heat, and most are likely maintained on a regular basis. So long as a pool’s owner keeps up with the maintenance of the pool, its filter system, and the chemical makeup, there is no reason to not go swimming in it. All public pools in California are required by law to be kept at safe and sanitary levels at all times. If a person suspects that this isn’t being done at a local public pool, they can report the problem to their local health officials.

As things begin to heat up this summer, be sure to help keep pools clean by not using them as bath time, and showering before getting into the water. This will help keep the pool water clean for everyone.

Be Careful Meeting People from the Internet in Real Life

Be Careful Meeting People from the Internet in Real Life

Over the last few years, the internet has become an almost integral part of people’s everyday lives. Most people can’t go a day without going online for one reason or another. The internet has allowed people to do a whole lot without ever leaving their homes, such as shopping or communicating with people.

As detached as the internet allows a person to be, there are times where people chose to meet with others they met online. Usually it is to buy or sell something, but sometimes it is because the people decided they wanted to meet face to face. As harmless as this may sound, it can actually be very dangerous to meet someone new for the first time, even if the people have been talking online. The fact of the matter is, a person never knows for sure who he may be meeting.

The Internet Isn’t Always Truthful

When it comes to the internet, there is a lot of anonymity. No one ever knows for sure who they are dealing with since no one ever sees the other’s real face. They may not even get the other person’s real name. Even though a person may claim to be someone online, doesn’t mean it is true.

Anyone, good or bad, can be found online. This is why it is so important for people to keep personal information, name, address, and phone number, to themselves. They should also keep all of their online accounts set to private. Doing so can reduce the chances of something bad happening.

Still, there are times when people from the internet decide to meet in person, for one reason or another.

Choose a Safe Meeting Location

The most common reason why internet people meet in real life is when one is selling something to the other person. Unfortunately, what should be a harmless interaction can turn dangerous, or even deadly, for one of the people involved. This is usually due to the fact that one person is not who they claimed to be, and is just trying to lure the other into a trap of some sort.

In order to avoid being taken advantage of, and avoid any harm, a person needs to play it safe when meeting with an online buyer or seller. One of the simplest ways to do that is to choose the right meeting place. A person should never invite an online seller or buyer to their house, and likewise, they should never agree to meet someone at their house.

The best places to meet are in public, during broad daylight, with lots of witnesses close by. This way, if the other person tries to pull anything, there will be people close by who can help out. One of the best places to meet people from online, is at a local sheriff’s or police station. In fact, some stations have begun designating areas in their parking lots specifically for this reason. This helps ensure everyone’s safety.

A criminal would have to be very brazen to try to pull anything. Plus, setting up a meeting here is also a good way to weed out people who are trying to pull some sort of scam or criminal activity, since they won’t like the idea of meeting at a police station. If anyone ever tries to disagree with meeting at a police station, they should probably be avoided. After all, it is in both party’s best interest to meet in a safe place, and it doesn’t get much safer than right outside a police station.

Another good idea is to bring a buddy, someone trusted. This again just adds an extra witness to everything, and further reduces the chances of something bad happening. If a person can’t find someone else to bring with them, because their loved one’s are busy, then they should at least tell a trusted loved one everything about the planned meeting. This includes:

  • Time of meeting.
  • Location.
  • Reason for meeting.
  • All information on the person they are meeting with.

This way, if something goes wrong, someone else should know about it.

Stay Safe When Buying from Someone Online

When it comes to buying stuff online from people rather than retailers, it is always best to exercise some caution. No one wants to get scammed, or worse. Taking the proper steps, like meeting near a police station, can prevent something bad from helping, thereby allowing the person to go about their day without worry.

Hopefully you’ve never had a bad experience when buying an item online, but maybe you have a weird or memorable one. In the comments below, tell us about your weirdest or most memorable experience of buying something from someone online.

DUI Checkpoints Aren’t That Bad

DUI Checkpoints Aren’t That Bad

Any driver who has encountered a DUI checkpoint before is probably aware of how slow they can be. Law enforcement officers set up on a stretch of road in order to stop and talk to every driver they encounter. This, naturally, slows down traffic and can make people late. This has the unfortunate side effect of causing people to hate DUI checkpoints.

DUI checkpoints can be tedious to get through as a driver awaits their turn to be interviewed by an officer. What some drivers are not aware of, is that they are legally avoid to avoid DUI checkpoints, provided they don’t break any road laws in order to do so. This is a right granted to all citizens by the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.

The Fourth Amendment protects citizens from unreasonable searches, or searches of a person’s property without their consent. Therefore, a person is allowed to avoid a DUI checkpoint if they want to. This is also why law enforcement agencies have to post notices about the checkpoint before it occurs, thereby allowing people to opt-out of the checkpoint by driving a different route.

While DUI checkpoints can be annoying for people who have not been drinking, they do help keep roads safe. They locate drunk drivers and remove them from the road. This keeps everyone else safe, which makes the occasional slow down worth it.
