The full moon is often accused of having a bizarre effect on people. Whenever someone exhibits odd behavior, the full moon is often to blame. Crime seems to escalate along with those extremely and unusually weird actions performed. So many ask, “Does a full moon really impact human behavior, and why does it promote darker tendencies?”

Ajua Bail Bonds as well as many medical field experts, law enforcement and even a few bartenders we have spoken to, believe a full moon has a part to play in the committing of crimes. Full moon crime, or the lunar effect, might actually be the cause of criminal impulses. Scientists have conducted research in supporting this theory and legal professionals have been known to use the lunar effect in criminal defenses. A lawyer in the 19th century used the “guilty by the full moon” as a line of defense for his “lunatic” clients in stating the lunar effect is what purged the criminal act from the defendants. This created the “lunar defense” in the court systems.

Study of Moon Phases Affecting People’s Behavior

In 1995 at the University of New Orleans, researches conducted a study that revealed cops and medical personnel topped the list in believing that crime and trauma occurred more often on full moon nights.

Here’s a few more studies on the subject:
– In 1978, the University of Washington performed an investigation over a 5 year period where 11,613 cases where studied, and concluded the majority of the aggravated assaults were committed on full moons.
– Sussex Police Department conducted an informal review in 2007, and did notice more violent crimes being executed during full moons.
– New Zealand’s own Justice Minister supports the lunar effect upon observing the rise in violent crimes in January of 2008.

Moon Related Crime Theories

With the statistics to back the theory, could the moon really have a play in triggering violent tendencies in the criminal minded? Some have a few theories regarding the speculation.
– Mike Zimecki performed his own study in 2006. Compiling cases in 3 different police departments in towns in Europe from the years 1978-1981, the violent crimes that had been carried out was incredibly higher on full moons. He also documented suicides and crimes being elevated on full moons was due the moons gravitational pull creating “human tidal waves”.
– A sleep study was conducted with 33 volunteers by a doctor of the University Basel’s Psychiatric hospital. The experiment was to discover what the full moon’s light reacts with human sleep. Researchers found the it 5 minutes longer for the volunteers to fall asleep on the nights of a full moon, with 30% less time in REM, and 20 minutes less sleep overall.
– Lastly, a Miami psychiatrist wrote a book in 1978, proposing the moon was associated human behavior by affecting their emotional and mental states similar to that which effects a full moon’s link to ocean’s tidal waves.

When it comes to the most talked about arrests you can bet that Hollywood celebrities are on the top of the list. When anyone is arrested for a crime the process is the same. They are booked into a jail and then have to get processed. You are searched for the safety of everyone at the jail. You also will be fingerprinted and mug shots taken. These are many times part of public record and it is interesting to see a celebrity that you have known from a movie or show in that type of situation.

Ajua Bail Bonds has prepared a list of the top most common crimes that Hollywood celebrities are often picked up for.

Driving Under the Influence (DUI): It seems like the never ending list of celebrities that have been picked up for driving under the influence. They are usually coming from some kind of event that has been serving alcohol and instead of waiting for a sober driver they decide to get behind the wheel. If anyone is arrested for a DUI, you could spend time in jail and could be given community service once you have made bail. If you are caught twice you could be spending more time in jail and you will most likely be paying a fine.

Shoplifting: It may seem silly that a well to-do celebrity would be picked up for shoplifting but it happens. When you think of a celebrity you think about the amount of money they must be receiving for the part they play in shows and movies. They should be able to pay for the items but for whatever reason they choose to steal it instead. If anyone is picked up by the police for shoplifting you will be booked and most likely you will need to get issued a bond and bailed out while you wait to see a judge.

Tax Evasion: This is a crime that is scary if you are caught and arrested for it. The problem is that you are now breaking a federal law that requires everyone that has any income to file and pay taxes. Celebrities make so much money that they are always trying to find a way to lessen how much in taxes they have to pay and many times it is not legal. This will land you in a jail cell in no time at all.

Drug Possession: Many celebrities feel like they are above the law and sometimes are more willing to carry things such as drugs with them; on their person or in the car they are driving in. The celebrity will catch a case against them and be sent to jail if they are found to have any drugs on them just like anyone else. This crime will also most likely require the accused to be bailed out of jail.

No one wants to ever know how the court system works first hand, but sometimes either poor decisions or being at the wrong place at the wrong time can land us or a loved one in that predicament.

In any case, Ajua Bail Bonds has compiled a FAQ list to help you understand what steps to take in obtaining a bail bond.

What is the Purpose of a Bail Bond?

The intent of bail is to assure the defendant will be in all court proceedings a judge orders before or after a conviction.
`

Is Bail Ever Refunded?

You will not receive any funds back that were paid for the bail bond. Once the bail bond has served its function, the surety will be exonerated or released from the obligation. If the proceeding get terminated or the defendant is returned to custody, the exoneration has transpired.

How do Bail Bonds Work?

Posting bail bond involves a contractual undertaking guaranteed by a bail agent and the individual posting bail. The bail agent assures to the court that the defendant will be attending every court date the judge orders them to. The defendant is charged a percentage of the bail. Before being released either the defendant, family member or friend must acquire the services of a bail bond agent and arrange bail. Before bail will be posted, the defendant or co-signer will agree to pay the full amount if the defendant does not show up for court. Generally a family member, or friend co-signs for bail. Collateral is not always required, although the co-signer does need to be working or own a home. Often times bail can be posted upon a co-signers signature. Once the contract has been signed, the bail bond agent then posts bail. If the defendant disappears before the court dates, the co-signer is responsible to pay the full amount, and if the agent seeks out the defendant, the co-signer is also required to pay the full expenses.

How Long is the Bail Bond Good For?

A bail bond is good for one year. If the case goes beyond the year, the premiums must be paid again in order to keep the bail bond current.

Is Bail Money Returned if Charges are Dismissed?

Statutes provide for exoneration of the surety in the event of a dismissal. There is however, a grace period if the prosecution may seek to re-arrest. The bail bond company does not award any return money.
