It’s the holiday season and everyone enjoys a good office party, family get together or New Year’s celebration. The holiday’s are a great time of year to spend with family and friends to exchange gifts, eat a festive feast and look back on the events of the past year. While the holiday season is usually an enjoyable one, it is also unfortunately a time of year where certain crimes spike and even the most innocent citizens can somehow become involved in an arrest by local law enforcement. Parties can get a little out of control, alcohol can fuel emotions at a family event and some people act a little desperate this time of year.
 

DUI Bail Cost in California

Some of the most common crimes that occur throughout the holiday season include drunk driving, domestic violence and shoplifting. Holiday parties are scheduled throughout the entire month and even through to the New Year. Every holiday party usually involves a variety of alcohol. Some company parties even provide an open bar, which unfortunately to some employees, acts as an open invitation to get completely plastered. Alcohol prevents smart thinking, so driving home while intoxicated doesn’t seem like such a bad idea at the time, while in reality it will result in an arrest. If you do make the poor decision to drink and drive and get arrested in the Central Valley, call Ajua Bail Bonds to get out of jail fast!
 

Domestic Violence Bail Conditions

Going to grandma’s house for a festive feast is a great way to spend with extended family and friends that you may not have seen for quite some time. While family get-togethers are a great way to celebrate the holidays, they can also turn into a more uncomfortable situation if unresolved beefs are addressed and tensions get high. Some family members can become aggressive and do more than just voice their frustrations with other members of the family. Domestic violence is not the gift that you were expecting, but domestic violence can result in a visit from local law enforcement and even an arrest on News Years Eve. If things get out of hand this New Years Eve and you are arrested for domestic violence, call Ajua Bail Bonds to get you out of jail and ready to start the new year at home rather than jail.
 

Typical Bail Bond for Shoplifting

Shoplifting is one of the most common crimes committed during the holiday season. People sometimes become desperate this time of year to provide some type of gift or get greedy. With shopping at its all time high this time of year, store workers get easily distracted and crowds are heavier, so the opportunity to shoplift is much more enticing to those considering swiping something off of the shelf. Today’s store security systems are equipped with a million different cameras that will catch anyone in the act of shoplifting. Sitting in jail over the holidays for shoplifting will not bring any type of holiday cheer.

When a person is arrested they are taken into custody and have to go through the booking process. This usually consists of the jail searching them and removing and bagging all their belongings. Then the person is taken for fingerprinting and a photographing to document them as they were the day they were arrested. After the booking process, the jail will usually allow the arrested person access to a phone. This is when they are able to call a family member or a friend and ask if they are going to be able to bail them out.
 

Bail Bonds Process

The process for bail is an entirely different entity than the jail. A bail bonds company is someone that you can hire and pay to get your loved one out of jail and released as soon as possible. When the person that has gotten arrested is able to make a call, they may call a girlfriend or boyfriend and ask for help. This person might get started with a bail bonds company right away. The arrestee might have also gotten a hold of a sister or parent to alert them of the arrest. This family member might also take it upon themselves to start the bail bond process as well. Now you have two different people that are getting everything ready to bail you out and you are only going to need one!
 

How to Bail Someone out of Jail

When the jail talks to bail bonds companies, they have no way to keep track of which company is working with each person trying to post bail for an inmate. They will offer the information to anyone that calls looking for it. What does that jail do if two people are trying to post bail? They are not going to accept them both. The jail will process whichever bail bond company got their paperwork to them first. The bail bond that comes in second will be returned to the company with a note that says the inmate is no longer in their custody. The person that has gotten their bail bond in first, will be responsible for the person that was arrested just like the paperwork stated. The other person that tried to post bail bond after the first one was processed will be able to void out all the activity with them and should not have any responsibility any longer.

If you have been arrested and asked a family member or friend to help arrange for your bail, there are several important factors you should be aware of before you do so. When your friend or family co-signs for your bail, they are not only taking responsibility for the payment of the bond, but also taking responsibility for you to appear in court. If they agree to help, they will either have the option of paying the full bail amount directly to the court or they can utilize the services of a licensed bail bondsman. When they sign a contract with a bail bond company, they become the indemnitor; this means they assume all responsibility to the court and the bailsman. The contract is a legally binding document.
 

What Happens When you Skip Bail

What happens if you skip out on your bail? As the signer or co-signer of the contract, your family member or friend are taking responsibility for you to show up for the required court appearances. Most often when you fail to go to court it is a simple case of car trouble or forgetfulness and these situations can be resolved with a simple phone call to the court or bail bondsman. It’s important to understand though that failure to appear is a criminal offense. When you do not appear in court when requested to do so, it can result in a felony or misdemeanor charge. The details of this criminal charge depend on the circumstances and jurisdiction you are in, but in most cases, deliberately skipping court results in additional legal consequences. This charge is also a permanent mark on your legal record, which will make bail bondsman less likely to help you in the future because you have shown behavior that is untrustworthy in the past.
 

Bench Warrant Issued for Failure to Appear

When you knowingly skip out on your assigned court date, bail will be revoked and a bench warrant will be issued for your arrest. Warrants last forever and have no expiration date. The public is screened for warrants on a regular basis such as routine traffic stops and international air travel. Skipping bail is serious for both you and the person who cosigned for your bail; and it has a very long list of consequences. In the state of California both the bondsman and the cosigner will have 180 days to get you back into the legal system. If it becomes necessary for the bail bond agent to apprehend you, the agent may use the services of a fugitive recovery agent or bounty hunter. In these circumstances, as the cosigner, your family member or friend will be liable for paying the additional costs to cover the expense of the bounty hunter.

The cosigner will be liable to cover all fugitive recovery costs. If you are unable to be located, the cosigner will have to pay the full bail amount back to the court or bail bond agency. If collateral such as a house was posted, it will be considered forfeited and your family member or friend will be left empty handed and alone. In conclusion, when your family member or friend agrees to co-sign for your bail, you have a responsibility to them and should strive to attend all your court dates and not skip out on bail.

For those who are curious about being booked into jail, getting discharged, or perhaps even turning yourself in due to warrants, Ajua Bail Bonds would like to briefly relate how it works.

 
Once apprehended and escorted to jail expect the following:
1. Depending on criminal activity and how many guests are booked that day, could depend on how long the process will take. For this waiting period you are placed in the waiting room or cell.
2. Your general information is recorded. Full (legal) name, home address, date of birth and emergency contact information among others.
3. Medical history and mental stability are also asked and recorded.
4. After all of your information has been processed, you will then be issued an inmate identification number.
5. Next, you will be fingerprinted.
6. Smile; mug shot time. A profile and front picture for your mug shot will then be taken.
7. Personal property is collected and stored. You will get everything back once you are discharged.
8. Once you have been processed, you are then allowed to make your phone call to either a family member or friend, an attorney, or a bail bond company. Choosing a trusted family member or friend might be the best option cause they can take care of the attorney or bail bond on your behalf.
9. Depending on your estimated stay, you will either be permitted to stay in your street clothes, or you may be issued a jump suit or the jail uniform.
 
Your discharge process is usually conducted as such:
1. After bail has been posted or your sentence is completed, you will prepare to check out.
2. Depending on the jail circumstances, the process takes about 30 minutes.
3. The paper work is done depending on the outcome of your bail, sentencing, or defense, but mostly you will be waiting on others.
4. Once everything is in order, you will be given your property back and permitted to leave.
 
Turning yourself in on an outstanding warrant:
1. If you know there is an outstanding warrant out for your arrest, turning yourself usually impacts your favor.
2. If you believe this applies to you, go to the jail intake center and explain you think you have a warrant.
3. They will process your information by running a record check, and if you are correct, they will then formally take you into custody.
4. You will then be processed in the above manner.
5. If you are going to the jail to serve the time you have been sentenced, make sure you arrive on the appropriate date and time. Do NOT show up late.
7. Bring your sentence order, state ID or drivers license. If you are in need of a prescription medication, bring the medication, along with the original doctor’s prescription.
8. It is better to leave all other personal items in the care of a loved one.
9. Once the sentence is served, you will go through the discharge process.
