The full moon is a mysterious thing, often having a bizarre effect on many people. A full moon has been linked to people exhibiting odd behavior and with the stigma, it often plays a role in films, songs, and various forms of writing. But not only do people have a tendency to display peculiar actions, the crime seemingly escalates when a full moon is nigh. With that in mind, we at Ajua Bail Bonds would like to discuss if the full moon really is to blame for odd and/or violent acts.
 

Full Moon Effects on Human Behavior

Does a full moon really impact human behavior, especially so that it produces darker tendencies than one might not normally act on? A full moon has a part to play in different occurrences according to a few bartenders, some medical field experts, and a few law enforcement officers. Even so, some even go to the extent of believing a full moon crime is the result of a lunar effect that amplifies a criminal impulse. Where there those who believe it’s nothing more than a myth, scientists have conducted research in supporting the claim.
 

Lunar Phases & Crime Rates

Not only have scientists spent time in this theory, but legal professionals have been known to use the lunar effect as a part of the client’s criminal defense. In fact in the late the 19th century, an attorney plead “guilty by the full moon” for one of their clients as their course of defense for his “lunatic” behavior that was purged from his client due to the lunar effect inducing the criminal act from the defendant. As a result the “lunar defense” was created in the court systems.
 

Full Moon & Crime Rates

This stirred curiosity with individuals of the University of New Orleans where in 1995, they conducted a study that the increased crime and trauma that occurred on full moon nights is a phenomenon both cops and medical personnel believe to be true. However, in a published book a doctor conducted his own research where he could not confirm any connected evidence that the lunar effect produced from a full moon enhances criminal behavior at all. Other studies produce different evidence that you will find below.
1) Violent crimes being executed during full moons is noticed by Sussex Police Department conducted an informal review in 2007.
2) In January of 2008 the Justice Minister of New Zealand supports the theory of lunar effect upon observing the rise in violent crimes during that time.
3) The majority of the aggravated assaults were committed on full moons when an investigation over a 5 year period where 11,613 cases where studied by the University of Washington in 1978.

There are many accounts that suggest that the full moon has an effect on people and others prove that it is just a myth that people use as a convenient excuse to commit immoral acts. No matter your views, the full moon has a special aura to it. If you or a loved one has been arrested for a crime on a full moon or not, Ajua Bail Bonds is readily available to bail you out. Call us as soon as possible to begin the process.

Being wrongfully accused of a crime you didn’t commit is stressful to say the least, but it happens all too frequently. A record setting number of those incarcerated were absolved and released from prison in 2015. The National Registry of Exonerations has reported in recent studies that 149 individuals stayed a median of 15 years behind bars before being vindicated. Imagine the number of people who have been wrongfully accused of a crime, gone through the trial process only to be found guilty, and their life destroyed as the slowly decay behind bars; is quite an alarming number. With that in mind we at Ajua Bail Bonds would like discuss wrongfully accused and share some advice on how to deal with the situation.
 

Posting Bail After Getting Arrested

For starters, the most important thing to remember is call Ajua Bail Bonds after getting arrested to bail yourself out in an effort to begin preparing for your defense. A new idea is spreading; prosecutor attorneys spend their day reviewing previous convictions. Traditionally, attorneys view their role as put the bad guy in prison, no matter the circumstances. Getting the wrongfully accused out of prison is a step in the right direction, but meanwhile, people are still getting wrongfully accused and later convicted.
 

What to Do When You Have Been Falsely Accused & Wrongfully Arrested

No one ever imagines that such circumstances can befall them, especially when they put in the extra effort to follow the rules and avoid breaking any laws. Below you will find some tips on what do if you are wrongfully arrested.
1) Retain a reputable lawyer. Whether you need one before or after you post bond, don’t believe that your acclaimed innocence will help you. Too often people get representation too late in the game because they feel it will make them look guilty. Having an attorney at your side from the beginning can make a significant difference in the final outcome.
2) Use your right to remain silent. Something you should always use, even when innocent is the right to remain silent which was established by the U.S. Constitution. Even the slightest deviations from the original statement will make you look guilty, even though you will want to shout your innocence and what really happened. Until you have spoken to an attorney, do not speak to anyone at all, law enforcement or civilians alike.
3) Respectfully decline any tests and searches. You never know what kind of “evidence” officers find; deny any optional searches or tests, despite if believe the DNA test will clear your name. You will be guaranteed all rules and policies are applied by ensuring the police get a warrant. You have the right to decline any searches or testing unless it has been court ordered.
4) Gather any evidence or proof of your innocence and prepare your defense. Collect all other evidence in your favor and don’t destroy anything you think may not work for you. Deliver all information and evidence you have gathered for your attorney.
5) Understand that you will not get any special treatment. You are not presumed innocent; in fact you will not privileged because you know you are innocent, law enforcement assumes your guilt. It is a challenge and a long road to prove your innocence in the justice system.

There are several consequences when a person skips bail. For those who got out of jail on a bail bond and fail to appear for their court date and/or leave town or hide from the authorities, will first owe the court the entire bail bond amount. If you attempt to avoid the authorities, you will then have a warrant issued for your arrest. Additionally, not only will law enforcement be looking for you, so will a Recovery Agent hired by the bail bond agency that helped post your bail. A Recovery agent is also known as a bounty hunter. Ajua Bail Bonds will explain the role of a recovery agent and what abilities they possess in tracking down fugitives or those who skip bail.
 

What is the Job of a Fugitive Recovery Agent?

Bail bond recovery agents, fugitive’s recovery agents, or bounty hunters, are hired by bail bond agencies to track down and arrest those individuals who obtained a bail bond to get out of jail until their scheduled court date and then choose not to appear or run away from the justice system. These individuals are known as jumpers or bail jumpers. Some recovery agents can also be hired independently, depending on their licensing. Recovery agents have very good success rates. On average, they have an 88% to 91% success rate of tracking down and locating jumpers. Each state varies on the laws and regulations recovery agents follow. Keep in mind, most recovery agents have access to many methods of tracking down a fugitive.
 

How Do Bounty Hunters Look for You

Recovery agents use all of these methods to locate a jumper or fugitive. They are able to perform background checks, and even have access to criminal records. Recovery agents will also use different types of surveillance as to where the jumper may be hiding. Recovery agents are able to talk to friends and family members to help locate the fugitive. Recovery agents often use deceit or persuasion to convince witnesses to tell him or her where the fugitive might be hiding. A recovery agent, once they’ve located the jumper, can perform an arrest of the individual and even on private property. Additionally, recovery agents don’t require an arrest warrant to perform the arrest either.
 

Bail Bond Cosigners

Recovery agents typically work for a recovery agency, the bail bond company, or some can even work independently. Sometimes if the person that co-signed on a bail bond, and the person they bailed out took off, then the co-signer is now held responsible for paying the bail in full. Sometimes the co-signer will hire a recovery agent to locate the person they helped bail out of jail so that they are no longer held responsible for the entire bail out fee. If the recovery agents either work for the bail bond agency or a firm, they will be hired again to locate and find the jumper.
 

Manhunters

Recovery agents are extremely successful in locating and tracking down fugitives. Recovery agents go through extensive training and require licensing to become a recovery agent or bounty hunter. For those who decide to skip out on their court date, you can expect to have to pay the entire bailout fees, go back to jail, and with more serious charges placed against you. Of course, you can also expect to have a recovery agent hot on your heels.

If you have never had to deal with a bail company there are lots of terms that we will use. We use specific legal terms as well as terms that are specific to their business that you may not be aware of. No one wants to deal with a bail company because that means that you have a loved one that has been arrested. It is a sensitive time in anyone’s life and you want to be as prepared as you can. Educating yourself on the terms and responsibilities that exist when someone is arrested is important. This will help if you ever find yourself in a position where you need to bail someone out of jail. If you are the trusted loved one that the person that is arrested calls for help you will hear the term ‘indemnitor’. This is a word that you most likely have not come across in everyday life and can seem somewhat intimidating.
 

Ajua Bail Bonds Offers What An Indemnitor Is & What Is Expected Of The Person That Accepts the Responsibility

What Is An Indemnitor: When you call a bail bond company for a loved one or a defendant that has been arrested we will have all sorts of information for you. We will have paperwork that you will be required to sign and your line will label you the indemnitor. That terms means that you are the one that has accepted the responsibility including financial of the arrested party. You are taking on a huge risk and that is why you need to be fully prepared for the responsibilities that come with this particular aspect. The indemnitor is the one that will be paying up the fee that is reserved so the bail company will post a bond for the arrestee. They are then released but far from done with their responsibilities to the court and the jail.
What Is The Indemnitor Responsible For: When someone has been arrested they are booked at the jail and await a time to see the judge. The judge will set an amount that is to secure their release that is called bail. The bail bond company pays the bail in the form of a bond. The indemnitor will have had to meet with and sign documents prior to the payout. The indemnitor is also the one that will have had to bring the percentage that is required to the bail company to post the bond. Further, they are also the person the bail company will contact if there is any issue in locating the suspect or if the suspect runs from their court dates. Any missing court appearances means the bail company will revoke the bond and bring the suspect back to jail. You may be on the hook for any fees that are associated with collecting of said person. Your obligation only is severed after the case has been completed or dismissed.

If you have never been arrested then you may not know what bail is all about. If you have been arrested and you have posted bail before you still may not realize everything that happened. The person that has been arrested is often in a hurry to get out of jail and will do whatever it takes to accomplish that goal. From the time you are arrested to the time you get out on bail may seem like it takes a long time but the process is often quite fast. You are picked up by the police for a slew of crimes and taken into the jail in your area. The process from this point is the same for most jails where they get to walk you through the booking process. Once you are booked is the time that you will have to get to see a judge. The judge will look at your case, crime and background and make a recommendation on bail amount. You are then put in an area of the jail that houses inmates. You will need to take over from this point if you want to be released from jail on bail. The bail amount varies but is often high enough that you don’t have it laying around in the bank. The amount of money you are required to pay can be adjusted if you use a bail bondsman.
 

Ajua Bail Bonds Explains What a Bail Company Does & Why We Are a Benefit When You Have Been Arrested!

You Don’t Have to Pay Full Bail Amount: When you find out that a loved one has been arrested you will start to get information gathered. You will have to wait until they have been processed and see a judge before you can work on bailing them out. The interesting thing is that the bail is often an amount of money that is too high to pay outright. If you don’t have thousands of dollars in your account to pay the entire fee you need a bail company. The bail company will work with you and allow you to pay them a fee which is much smaller than the bail and really only a small percent. Then they can go to the jail and post a surety bond that is good for the entire amount on your behalf.
Bail Bond Company Stays in Close Contact: After we have put up our own money to bail a person out of jail, we keep in close contact. You will often be required to leave names and addresses of the people that are closest to you. We want parents, spouse, kids and friends so we can contact you in any circumstance. We will require you to check in often and get to each and every required court date. If you stop contacting the bail agency we can pull the bond and take you back to jail.
Bounty Hunter: If you jump bail or you don’t end up going to your court date, the bail company is on the hook. The bail company will need to have the person picked up and taken back to the jail. This is a process that some call bounty hunting and many bail companies will use an outside source.
