Believe it or not, children were formerly considered suspects in child sex trafficking cases. Now, they will be treated as victims.
L.A. County will no longer arrest children on prostitution charges because they now want to focus on providing help for them. The legal age for sex is 18, which puts child prostitutes as victims, survivors of rape.
This is not to say that the other person or people involved in these sexual encounters were the ones who were once considered as the victims. This is not the case at all. These other people, those who are 18 or older and fully aware that they are abusing these children will continue to be arrested and prosecuted for these awful actions on their part. They may be offered bail, depending on the extremity of their situation and the judge’s ruling. If they are offered bail, they may choose to post bail with a bail bond from us at El Dorado County Bail Bond Store.

What is a bail bond?
A bail bond is a guarantee made with a third party bail bond company or agency to release a defendant from jail. Bail bonds cost a fraction of the full bail amount and comes with stipulations, mainly that the defendant will have to appear at all court appointments. If he or she neglects this, the bail bond is revoked, he or she will be taken back into custody, and any collateral for the bail bond may be lost from the owner.
How much does a bail bond cost?
A bail bond will cost significantly less than the bail amount that is set by the judge, usually between 10-15%. The bail price will depend on the type of crime and any criminal history the defendant has. So if the judge sets bail at $75,000, the bail bond would cost $7,500.
Is the money paid for a bail bond refundable?
No, the 10-15% of the full bail amount that is owed to the bail company is not refundable. This premium is essentially the fee you are paying for their professional services.
What is a bail bond co-signer?
The co-signer is responsible for ensuring the defendant meets all of his or her court appearances. They are also assuming financial responsibility if the defendant does not meet requirements. The co-signer does have protections, however: he or she can retract their name from the bail bond at any time.
What collateral is accepted?
Most people offer real estate, vehicles, valuables, electronics and jewelry as collateral. These are all accepted, though for real estate and vehicles, they must be property that does not still require payments on.

Bail bonds get a person out of jail for the time before and during their trial. This person, the defendant, can live at home, go to work, be with family, hang out with friends and just go about as much of a regular, normal routine as possible (there may be some stipulations). It’s easy then to conclude that bail bonds benefits the defendant. Obviously. But their getting out of jail by means of a bail bond benefits more than just them.
Bail bonds benefit the entire family and possibly even friends of the defendant. Bail bonds are most ideal cost-wise because instead of needing to pay the entire 100% of the bail bond to the court, only 10-15% is paid to the bail company like Martinez Bail Bond Store. Plus, this percentage is paid off on a payment plan, keeping monthly dues low. This means that the family and friends who are financially responsible have more funds to use on other necessary things like rent, education, food, lawyers, etc.
Because the defendant can live at home, he or she can spend time with the ones who love them most – siblings, spouses, children. This is very precious time as it may be taken away for a period of time at the end of trial.
Moreover, the family and friends may also benefit from any income the defendant can continue to rack in as he or she returns to work as allowed.
No lives will be stopped during this process, not if we at Martinez Bail Bond Store can help it. It may be briefly paused, but only briefly. Otherwise, we will help get your lives back on track with as much normalcy as possible.

The below are a round-up of what we have concluded to be the 7 dumbest, silliest, most absurd laws in California (ranked in no particular order). We’re basing our criteria mostly on the fact that we’re dumbfounded as to why these are even laws because they’re just out-right “w-t-f.” We hope you find this entertaining (and probably a little bit informative, just in case you were planning on committing one of these…):
- In Indian Wells, it’s illegal to lure anyone into a store by playing the trumpet. Any other instrument should be fine though!
- In Hollywood, it’s illegal to herd over 2,000 sheep down Hollywood Boulevard at once. You’ll have to leave some at home. Maybe this became a law because well, Hollywood is kind of weird…
- It’s illegal for animals to mate within 1,500 feet of a school or place of worship. So for all those birds, rats, mice, etc. that do not belong to anyone, beware! No one will know who you are and no one will bail you out of jail!
- In Fresno, it’s illegal to annoy a lizard in a city park. Don’t go crying to the lizards over your next breakup.
- In Dana Point, it is illegal to use your bathroom if the window is open. For privacy when showering, that’s great. But good luck trying to get rid of that gross smell after you go #2.
- No vehicle may be going over 60 miles per hour if there is no driver. No need to be concerned about any driverless car going under 60 miles per hour – we believe in ghosts.
- In Carmel, a man may not leave his house wearing a jacket and pants that do not match, and a woman may not wear high heels. The Carmel police department must really be the fashion police.
We’re pretty confident none of you will ever get arrested for disobeying these laws, but in case you did, don’t say we didn’t warn you. Don’t worry though, even if you did get arrested, we at Dixon Bail Bond Store will help bail you out of jail and we’d certainly be very astounded that you even got arrested for this in the first place. These laws are too silly to be serious.

It’s important for you, as a citizen, to understand the difference between “reasonable suspicion” and “probable cause.” For you, it’s so you know your rights and protections. For the police, it’s what they rely on when deciding to make an arrest, conduct a search or question a person.
Reasonable suspicion is when officers have the reason to believe that an individual they choose to stop, briefly detain and/or question is involved in some criminal activity. Their reason to believe this is developed from their professional training and experience.
Probable cause is when officers have sufficient evidence, facts, and/or circumstances that leads them to believe that the person of interest is the correct person of interest. Probable cause can give officers the right to search and/or seize evidence or make an arrest. An officer must have probable cause to secure a search warrant.
Sometimes, the officers are wronged in their arrests and searches. It’s to your benefit that you know when the officers are acting above their authority. You can argue in court. You must know your rights and protect yourself.
If you are arrested, you’re not alone in your fight (whether you are truly innocent or not). Martinez Bail Bond Store can help with bail. We believe everyone is innocent until proven guilty and since you (or your loved one) has not been found guilty, please do contact us for bail help.

Everyone is preparing for El Niño by repairing their roofs and sealing up cracks. But have you considered reading up on driving tips for wet weather? A thing you might want to avoid is getting pulled over, getting in an accident and/or getting arrested in the middle of the pouring rain. So, pay attention to these helpful tips for rainy season driving!
- Make sure brakes are working properly. If they are run down, get them replaced.
- Make sure all headlights, tail lights, brake lights and signal lights are working properly.
- Make sure windshield wipers are working properly. If they need to be replaced, replace them.
- Make sure your horn is working, loud.
- Get tires checked. If the treads are run down, get new tires.
- Check tire pressure regularly (once a month is okay). Fill them with air when necessary.
- Keep a spare tire in your car.
- Turn headlights on when using windshield wipers, even if it is not dark (this is actually a California law!)
- Avoid cruise control.
- Drive slower in the rain and leave more room in between you and the car in front of you.
- If you hydroplane, let your foot off the gas but do not hit the brakes. Let the car slow down naturally. Keep tight control of the wheel.
When driving, remember that as much as you can predict you are a good driver, you cannot predict the habits, antics or accidents or drivers around you. Overall, just be cautious as you drive, especially in rainy weather.
If an accident occurs or you are pulled over and then arrested, go with the police officer calmly. Later you’ll be able to bail out of jail and we at Martinez Bail Bond Store will help you do so. Just call us (or have someone on your behalf call us) at 925-228-5858. We’re available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for your convenience.

‘Tis the season to look back and reflect whether you’ve been naughty or nice this year. We all have good days and bad days but regardless of that ratio, there is still time to do more good and be nice this year. Very nice.
What we’re talking about is co-signing a bail bond for your loved one. Basically, your loved one who was just arrested and has yet to complete trial wants to be freed for the time being. He or she will need to secure a bail bond from us at Martinez Bail Bond Store, which will require a co-signer. The co-signer is responsible for making sure the loved one meets all of his or her court-ordered appointments and appearances.
The biggest risk of a co-signer is having to pay the outstanding bail balance if the loved one does not go to court. However, co-signers do have protections as well: they can withdraw their name from the bail bond at any time if they so wish, especially if they feel as if their loved one will not go to court.
Don’t worry, our team at Martinez Bail Bond Store will help answer any additional questions you might have regarding co-signing a bail bond. We’re available 24/7 during your loved one’s bail and trial period so don’t hesitate to call us.
Do not hesitate to call, consultation with Martinez Bail Bond Store is always FREE, so call now at 925-228-5858 or click here to CHAT WITH US.
After filling out all sorts of forms and applications (universities, jobs, loans, credit cards, housing, etc.), you have definitely noticed the part where it asks if you have a criminal record and/or have ever been arrested. Ever wonder how often they check, or what they can see on criminal records?
- Not everyone will run the background check on you. Many will though.
- They will be able to see any arrests and convictions from the last 7 years.
- Anything beyond 7 years will not show up.
- Anything points or records that have been erased, expunged or pardoned will not show up.
Some other pointers:
- You should not lie about your criminal history on any application.
- Even with a criminal record, you may still be offered the job or be approved for a loan.
- If you lie, you will not get what you are applying for.
- Only answer what is being asked. Read the question carefully. Say you’ve been arrested for a misdemeanor but not a felony. The application explicitly asks if you’ve ever been arrested for a felony. You can check the no box.
- If there is a mistake on your criminal record, get it corrected.
Criminal records will make securing some things a little more difficult now and then, but it won’t have to haunt you forever.
