Naturally, with the biggest and worst crimes (the ones that capture media attention across the United States), bail is set very high. We decided to round up some of the United States’ most high-profile bail bond court cases. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, it’s likely you remember at least hearing these people’s name in the media.
- O.J. Simpson, known for his legal troubles instead of his status as a former NFL player, was arrested for robbing a hotel casino at gunpoint. His bail was set at $125,000 and he was also ordered to not contact his co-conspirators. He violated that order and bail was raised to $250,000.
- George Zimmerman’s bail was set at $150,000 for killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. When the court found out that Zimmerman and his wife raised over $130,000 online, the bail amount was raised to $1 million. Apparently Zimmerman and his wife lied about their financial security.
- Bernie Madoff, known for the largest financial fraud in US history ($65 billion!), had his bail set to $10 million. He also needed to have 4 people co-sign bail, which he failed to do so. After re-evaluating his bail conditions, the court basically freed Madoff on house arrest with curfew and travel restrictions. The people of the United States were not happy about this. However, he is now in jail.

A bail bond allows an arrested individual to be released from jail and live their lives until they are ordered to appear in court. The court will set a bail amount that the arrested individual must pay to get this release. If they cannot meet the bail amount alone or with loved ones willing to help, they can seek help from a professional bail bond agent. Instead of paying the court the full bail amount, they will only pay the bail agent a percentage of the bail amount. The bail agent will then meet the court’s requirements for the arrested individual.
Martinez Bail Bond Store is ready to help you in bailing out one of your loved ones.
- Know the name of the arrested person, and where they are held. We will contact the jail for the rest of the information.
- Fill out paperwork to post the bond. We will work together on a payment schedule that is affordable and acceptable for you.
- We will process the paperwork then hand it over to the jail to process. Please be aware that while filling out the forms only takes a few minutes of your time with us, the jail will take longer to process it. It may take a few hours.
- Make sure your loved one appears in court when asked. Failure to do so will render the bail bond null. There will be further consequences in this case.

It’s Spring Break time for college students and spring break tends to be pretty notorious for wild parties in hot destinations like Cabo, Cancun, Havasu, and Florida, to name a few.

For college students, it’s their rewarding break following weeks of schooling.

The toughest times for people to ask for help are when they’re in trouble, especially asking for help from the ones who can offer it the most – parents.

Their unconditional love and natural parental instinct will always prevail, no matter how much you’re in trouble.

Admitting to someone, especially parents, that you’re in trouble can be terrifying, absolutely terrifying. But not telling them you need help is worse, as they are the people who can help you the most and offer you the most support. Parents never give up on their children – your parents will not give up on you. Whether you’re in trouble for cheating on a test or you’re in trouble with the police, find a way to tell your parents. Besides, you may not realize it now, but being honest with your loved ones relieves you a huge amount of stress.
- Tell your parents everything. Don’t leave anything out.
- Write down what you want to say if you need to.
- Be genuine and compassionate.
- Realize your mistake. Admit it. Understand possible consequences. Accept them.
- Explore ways how you can learn from this.
- Ask for help.
These are just some of so many tips that can help one person ask their parents for help when they’re in trouble. “Trouble” can extend to involve a wide array of situations but you can and will find how to handle your trouble, with the help of your parents.
When a bond of love is honest, true, and strong, nothing will be able to break apart the two who promised to support and be each other “for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health.” This wedding vow might easily be said, but harder done when the lower end of the spectrum comes in – for worse, for poorer, and in sickness.
If your lover is arrested, will you stand with him or her in solidarity through the case? Will you help bail them out of jail? You may not agree with the actions he or she committed and in fact, he or she may not be at fault. Facing reality when a loved one is in jail falls among the toughest of tough times but if you have the courage and strength to be there to support them, that is truly admirable.
Don’t let your loved one sit behind jail bars until his or her court date arrives. Bring them home and show them how much you will love and support them unconditionally. If the two of you get through this bump together, you can get through anything together. If you need assistance with bail, give Martinez Bail Bond Store a call at 925-228-5858. We act as an additional support system for you and will walk you through the entire bail bond process.
