What Is My Monthly Payment?

Once people figure out what the initial cost of their loved one’s bail bond will be, they want to know how much the monthly payments will cost. Unfortunately, much like figuring out the initial cost of the bail bond, figuring out monthly payments requires a lot of information. This makes it hard to give people a real answer without having any case information.

There are different factors that play into the size of the monthly payments.

Size of the bail bond
Size of the initial payment
Length of the payment plan

These variables all factor into determining how much the monthly payments for the bail bond will be. If more money is paid up front, the monthly payments will be less, and vice versa. Larger bail bonds tend to have bigger monthly payments since more money needs to be paid...

Falsely Reporting a Crime

Just like it is a crime to falsely dial 9-1-1, it is also a crime to falsely report a crime in California. It is one thing to be innocently mistaken that a crime is taking, has taken, or is about to take place. In this case, the person reporting the false crime may not be charged because they were misled. However, it is another thing to purposely report a crime that you know for a fact never happened.

There are many reasons a person would want to falsely report a crime, including getting revenge on someone they are mad at, to scare someone or make them feel threatened, to do a prank, or trying to make a profit from another individual because of a fake kidnapping, for instance.

Anyone who falsely reports a crime to the police, the grand jury, a prosecutor, and 9-1-1 operators can be char...

To Be Mirandized

When someone is Mirandized, it means that they have been arrested and given their Miranda Rights. We are sure you have heard of Miranda Rights at least once or twice on television. They go along the lines of: “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say, can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford one, one will be appointed to you. Do you understand these rights as I have read them to you?”

At that point, the arrestee must answer with a verbal yes or no.

The purpose of this is to remind arrested individuals of these very protective rights that they should use to their benefit. These are their rights, so they are not taken advantage of by investigators.

Before the Miranda Rights were ever in place, defendants di...

What to Expect When You Are Arrested for a DUI for the First Time

DUI arrests happen a little too often around you. You can’t count the number of people you know who have been arrested for a DUI with your hands. Knowing what they each had to deal with makes you wonder what the charges are for someone who faces a DUI for the first time here in California.

For a first offense, where there was no injury or death, the defendant faces fines, a license suspension then license restrictions, and an alcohol-treatment program. Consequences also depend on what BAC you had at the time of arrest. The higher it was, the more fines you may have to pay and the longer you may have to wait to get your license back.

Repeat offenders face even harsher consequences and even jail or prison time.

Getting arrested for a DUI is a bad look, but it does not have to ruin your...
