Why Some Juveniles Will Get Bail While Most Won’t


In the majority of cases, juveniles (17 years of age or younger) who have been arrested won’t have to pay for bail because the way the justice system is set up, they won’t be offered bail. They will be released to their parents. Bail is only offered for those who are 18 years or older, unless the judge denies bail. However, the exception to bail and juveniles is that if the juvenile is being tried as an adult, then he or she can be eligible for bail.

Streaming TV Online Is Illegal – Remember!


These days, there aren’t as many people watching television shows and catching movies at the movie theater as there once was. They don’t want to have to move their schedule around to be able to catch their favorite show at a certain programmed hour, and they don’t want to have to spend $15 for a movie ticket. However, they will still be on point with their television shows and their movies. They will probably decide to catch them online and even download them; saving them on their computer.

Most people probably aren’t reminded or aren’t even aware of the fact that each time they download a movie or a television episode on their device, that it’s illegal to do so. Content that is available and shown to a substantial number of people by one person is also illegal. These are copy...

The Role Of A Bail Bond Co-signer


A part of being eligible for a bail bond is the need to find someone who will co-sign your bail bond. This person is known as a co-signer. The co-signer agrees to be financially responsible to pay the full bail amount monetarily or with collateral they pledged to put up such as property, vehicles, jewelry, or even weapons. If a person fails to appear at their court appointment when they are asked, then the assets that were put up will be confiscated. This is quite a lot to ask of a co-signer, so if they agree to this, then they must have a high degree of trust in that individual to not let them down.

The co-signer is risking a lot, but at the same time, they do have rights to protect themselves from losing everything in the case that they feel one might not be as trustworthy as they clai...

Miranda Rights, Private Attorneys, and Public Defenders


The Miranda Rights read as follows: “…you have the right to remain silent; you have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford one, one will be appointed to you.” You might think – ‘okay, maybe the court will appoint me an attorney, that way I can save some money. Well, that’s not really how it goes, and there are more than several different kinds of attorneys. Some attorneys will have the ability to help you out tremendously, while others will not.

If you’re hiring a defense attorney, you’ll need to hire one who specializes or has extensive experience in representing defendants charged with the same or similar crime as you. For example, if you’re arrested for theft, hiring a family attorney wouldn’t be the best idea. Private attorneys will charge you a fee, but tha...

The Positivity Behind Bail Bonds


Most people tend to associate negative thoughts and feelings with bail bonds because it means that someone that they love was potentially arrested for a crime. The idea of associating positivity, relief, and the overall care of an individual with bail bonds is at back of their minds, if it’s in their minds at all. However, these emotions should negate the negativity because they are the driving force behind people helping their loved ones get through these trials and tribulations and overcoming these obstacles.

Think about bail bonds as bringing a loved one home so that you can look after them and support them through their trying times. Try not to associate it with their initial arrest, if possible...

What If I Can’t Afford Bail?


Let’s face it – bail is expensive no matter how much your bail bond is priced at. Whether your bail bond ranges from a few hundreds of dollars, to the hundreds of thousands of dollars, to even a million dollars, it is an over-whelming circumstance and obstacle to have to overcome. On top of that, it’s not like something that you have ever anticipated on having to pay for, so obviously, you haven’t budgeted for it like you would for your rent, your bills, and your groceries.

Most people are unable to pay for bail out-of-pocket, meaning they cannot gather enough money quickly enough to pay for a bail bond. Most people need to pay off the entire bail payment before they are even released, and so for many, this option is just unrealistic. This is where bail bonds come into play.

Tips And Tricks For Lowering Your Bail


Bail can cost hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, even a million dollars, depending on the crime. A million dollar bail bond is unfathomable, but even a bail bond in the hundreds is still quite a bit of money that no one ever wants to have to pay. It can weigh and teeter on the mind like a seesaw. Bail is a consequence that has to be dealt with, but you do get your freedom back eventually. Is it worth paying? Yes it is. You want tips and tricks on how you can get your bail lowered? Well unfortunately, there are none.

The judge is very unlikely to change the bail amount after they have already set it. A lawyer cannot lower the bail amount, and neither can a bail bond agent. You may request to have the bail order reviewed, but in all likelihood, the bail will remain the same.
