What It Takes To Be A Bail Bond Co-Signer

Brentwood Bail Bonds

Should you ever agree to co-sign someone’s bail bond, you must take your role very seriously. Being a bail bond co-signer, even for someone very close to you, puts you at risk of losing money and/or belongings you put up as collateral. You essentially must stay on top of them and see to it that they go to their court dates, that they do not flee, that they do not get into additional trouble, or more such as making sure that they obey curfew or go to counseling.

If the defendant violates any of his or her release terms and conditions, then he or she can be re-arrested. The bail bond will be revoked and then you may owe the bail bond company money and your collateral.

However, you are not at a total loss here. You can sign on to be a co-signer, and then at anytime sign-off. If, at some point, you feel as though the defendant is not trustworthy and will create an issue with the bail bond, you can contact your Brentwood Bail Bond Store bondsman and request to have your name removed as a co-signer. Your bail agent will honor this request and bring the defendant back in. Once you are removed from the bail bond, you will no longer face any risk of losing your money and belongings; you will get your pledged collateral back. There is no punishment to you for withdrawing your name.

Major Bail Bond Benefits You May Not Know About

Berkeley Bail Bonds

Being in jail is simply sitting around all day doing nothing, having a few just-okay meals, and being allowed outside, maybe, for a few hours. Other than that, there is not much to it, pretty boring and miserable. As silly as it sounds, being in jail is actually hard work.

  • If an inmate wants to make a phone call, get soap or new shirts, or write to family and friends, he or she will need to have money to pay for it. In addition, it is not like inmates have a bank account at their disposal. These things are not free.
  • Speaking of money, obviously being in jail puts inmates out of work for a good paycheck. Some inmates may be assigned to different duties and tasks while in jail like doing laundry or cleaning, which will earn them a little bit of money.
  • Inmates will need to figure out how to walk, talk, and act in jail. Jail houses have all kinds of criminals from those who are innocent and genuinely kind, to those who are intimidating, those who “run the place.” Learning to stand your ground but also not rub off on anyone the wrong way is important.

 

That being said, do you see benefits to using bail bonds to get out of jail? By bailing out of jail, you can stay at your current, well-paying job, you can afford comforts and luxuries, and you do not have to worry about your safety among the other defendants.

Berkeley Bail Bond Store can provide bail bonds for you if and when you need one for yourself or someone you care about.

The Bail Bond Red Carpet

Martinez Bail Bonds

Celebrities live the good life, so why do so many of them end up getting arrested and charged with gun or drug possession, DUIs, or violence? The answer is because celebrities are still every day people just like you. They simply have more money and fame. While the glitz and glamour may seem really nice most of the time, it does not help much when they are arrested.

Celebrities get the same treatment as any other person when they are arrested. They are booked, granted bail, and then post bail. While they can easily afford to pay for their bail without a third party bail bond company, quite a few celebrities still use bail bonds to get out of jail anyway. Even with bail bonds, they still will not get any special treatment. They still have to pay for the bail bond, they have certain release terms and conditions, and they have to show up for court. Actually, they do get one thing that other non-celebrity individuals most likely will not get: the high profile media coverage. That is something that does not work in their favor.

Whether you are a basketball star, an actor, an architect, a teacher, a store manager, or any other professional, you will get the same bail bond treatment as everyone else here at Martinez Bail Bond Store. Our red carpet is not just for the stars, it is for everyone. We are going to get you bailed out of jail as quickly as we possibly can using our no collateral needed bail bonds, and getting you a payment plan you can work with.

How California Bail Works

Martinez Bail Bonds

For defendants, there is a price for freedom and that price can be very low, a few hundred dollars, extremely high, one million dollars, or anywhere in between. Freedom is what America is all about, so who gets to put a price on freedom for defendants? And how is that amount determined for each person? The price for freedom for recently arrested individuals is called bail, and judges are the ones who determine bail for defendants.

Bail is a dollar amount that a defendant must pay to the court in order to be released from jail. Anyone may assist the defendant in paying this money, especially when the bail is very expensive. The more expensive the bail, the more serious the circumstances are. Some examples would be a very serious crime was committed, the defendant may be a flight risk, or the defendant may have a prior criminal record.

There is a bail schedule that judges follow, which outlines the bail amount per crime and offense. The bail schedule is reviewed and adapted annually.

There is really nothing you can do to get your bail lowered. You can request it be reconsidered, but it is unlikely that it will change. Luckily, Martinez Bail Bond Store can get you a bail bond to get out of jail even faster. You will pay us a premium, 10% of the full bail amount, and within hours, you will be released. You will have a payment plan to follow, making paying for the bail bond even easier for you. Please contact us immediately to get more information on bail and bail bonds.

California Raises The Legal Age To Buy Cigarettes

Antioch Bail Bonds

Starting June 9th, people age 18, 19, and 20, will no longer be able to purchase tobacco products in California. Currently, you have to be at least 18 years old to buy cigarettes, but this is a move towards lowering teen smoking, an act which we are all aware has serious health risks. The Institute of Medicine conducted a study that resulted in 90% of daily smokers admitting to have begun smoking before they were 18.

California is the second state, behind Hawaii, to raise the legal smoking age and we will not be surprised if other states follow.

Anyone who is caught selling tobacco products to individuals under the age of 21, after the law change, can be charged with a misdemeanor. They will have fines, can face jail time, and may lose their license to sell the product.

If in the future, you need bail bond help because someone you know has been arrested for violating the new tobacco laws in California, our Antioch Bail Bond Store team can help you out. Please contact us immediately online or on the phone at 925-228-5858. We are open around the clock.

3 Tips To Successful Bail

Albany Bail Bonds

Applying for a bail bond is a quick and simple process, but there is no room for error. A bail bond can just as easily be revoked as it is granted, and obviously, no one wants that. Here are 3 important tips to follow when getting a bail bond:

  • Hire a bail bond agent and company in good standing. Look into the services they offer, what they charge, and their reputation. You want someone who is not just doing this for a paycheck, but someone who will be a reliable, supportive resource and be on your team to help you no matter what.
  • Know the exact contact information, address and phone number, of the defendant. The bail bond company and the court will want this information when they need to contact the defendant. Putting down a false address or phone number, knowingly or unknowingly, can delay processing of paperwork and release. It can also lead to a revoked bail bond.
  • Honor all the terms and conditions of your bail bond. This means showing up on time for all court appointments, obeying any travel and curfew instructions, making all bail bond payments on time, and attending counseling sessions, if the judge orders them. Just one instance of neglect can cause your co-signer to permanently lose his or her pledged collateral and you will be re-arrested and held without bail.

 

Everyone wants you to succeed while out on bail, your friends and family, the judge and court, and your Albany Bail Bond Store team. None of us want to see you fail and taken back into custody. We are all here to support you in the many ways that we can.

At Albany Bail Bond Store, our way of supporting you is by providing you with bail bond assistance.

What You Should Know About Bail And Bail Bonds

Martinez Bail Bonds

You know that with Martinez Bail Bond Store, you will not be facing this bail situation alone. You will have a professional and licensed bail agent with you for every step of the way, so you know exactly what is going on. Nonetheless, it is good to do independent research on the industry to give you an idea of what to expect. You will also want to look up keywords you will come across.

    Bail:
    Bail is a payment to the court that offers the defendant temporary release from jail. This defendant is still waiting for trial and has yet to be acquitted or convicted.

    Bail Bond:
    A bail bond is a written promise from a defendant to pay a premium, 10% of the bail in California, to the bail bond company and to show up to court when he or she is required to. The bail bond will then secure a defendant’s release from jail.

    Premium:
    Premium refers to the payments owed to a bail bond company for a bail bond. The premium will be 10% of the defendant’s bail amount.

    Co-Signer:
    The co-signer of a defendant’s bail bond will be assuming responsibility for that defendant. The co-signer must see that the defendant shows up for court. Being a co-signer can be risky, as they usually must pledge collateral, which they must forfeit if the defendant fails to show up for court. However, co-signers may also withdraw their responsibilities and name from the bail bond at any time, as a protection for themselves.

    Own Recognizance:
    To be released on own recognizance, the judge must see that the defendant is generally a good person. For example, they do not have a prior criminal record, they have good relationships with others in the community, the crime they committed was a harmless, minor offense, or things of that nature. If a defendant is released on own recognizance, then they merely sign to promise to show up for court, then they may leave jail. They do not have to pay bail or a bail bond.

 

Again, it is quite all right if you do not understand all of this bail-related information right off the bat. That is what your Martinez Bail Bond Store bail agent is here for – to make sure you understand what is going on and to get your loved one out of jail ASAP.
