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...

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...

Bored at work and want some fun? Try some light reading to educate yourself with some tips for when you travel to different states across America. We have compiled some of America’s wackiest, most absurd laws that are still in effect today.

The Bail Bond Red Carpet

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 glamor 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 ...


How California Bail Works

san marcos 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...
