Drink and Jail = Bail

Long Beach Bail Bonds

Summer is in full swing and we can tell you all are having the times of your lives. For some, however, they may be having a little too much fun. We seem to be bailing numerous individuals out of jail for having too much alcohol, then getting arrested because their actions while inebriated were not the best.

Long Beach Bail Bonds cautions against over-drinking, and especially drinking and driving. Drinking alcohol impairs judgement, and the more that is consumed, the worse your judgment gets. Some people wind up in fights, others go home with the wrong person, and many unfortunately drive while intoxicated.

Sipping on beers, wines, spirits, and cocktails is perfectly fine, provided those who are drinking, are aware of their intake and their limits...

Smoking Trends Rise and So Does the Legal Age Limit

Long Beach Bail Bonds

In recent years, vaping has become a very popular ‘alternative’ to smoking cigarettes. Compared to smoking cigarettes, vaping is ‘healthier’ both for the individual and their environment. However, both vaping and smoking cigarettes continue to carry a social stigma with them, a “coolness” factor. While vaping is growing more popular, it is not replacing cigarettes altogether.

Since the introduction of e-cigarettes in 2004, the percentage of high school seniors who smoked increased from 9% to 13%. It is still a bad habit, and e-cigarettes are not completely risk-free either. Plus, the University of Southern California found in a recent survey that teens who vaped were 6 times more likely to smoke cigarettes than those who do not vape.

In another attempt to curb teen smoking, Ca...

Millennials: Stop Sharing Your Netflix Passwords Now

Long Beach Bail Bonds

This note goes out to all the millennials who use Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO, or any other similar, subscription-based, streaming platform. Sharing passwords to an account is now officially a felony.

Perhaps before this, you already thought that sharing your password was the wrong thing to do, since you are allowing others to avoid paying for the subscription service. However, that did not stop you since the company had no way of knowing, plus everyone did it.

A recent court ruling is changing that, and now password sharing for these sites is a federal crime. The ruling came from a case that actually did not involve these streaming services. A man, who had left his job, continued to use his former employee’s credentials to access private information, with intent to defraud...

Keep Pokémon Go Fun! Avoid Jail and the Potential Need for Bail

Long Beach Bail Bonds

Answering phone calls, texting, checking traffic and finding alternate routes, replying to emails, there are plenty of distractions on mobile phones. Now, there is a new app that is taking over our lives: Pokémon Go. This falls under the games category, but this game is unlike any other. This one is addicting and far surpassed the majority of mobile games in popularity.

It is great that the game is doing so well since it is getting people out of their homes to walk around. It is a means for people to socialize with each other, even with strangers. Some companies are even capitalizing on the game by using it themselves for business tactics...

Long Beach Bail Bonds

Let’s be honest, if you are a Netflix user, than you either:

  • Have your own account but have shared your password with friends and family.
  • Have the password to a friend or family member’s account, and use theirs instead of creating your own.

Previously, sharing the password to a Netflix account was not illegal. However, now it is, and it is prosecutable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. We are not kidding. Who do you have to thank for this? Some man, who we will keep anonymous, who left his job but continued to use the password of his former coworker to download employee information.

In short, sharing Netflix passwords is now a federal crime, punishable by fines and perhaps a short jail sentence, but that is unlikely. Prosecutions are not expected to happen soon...

Responsibilities of a Bail Bond Co-Signer

Long Beach Bail Bonds

Bail bond co-signers play a vital role in the bail bond process. Some bail bonds can be dependent on having one or more co-signers. If the defendant fails to get the required number of co-signers for his or her bail bond, then they ultimately cannot get a bail bond and they cannot bail out of jail.

Co-signers are responsible for seeing that the defendant shows up for court appointments. Whether that is just reminding them with a phone call ahead of time, or picking them up and driving them to court, it is up to the co-signer to see they make it to court. Even if it literally means they chase after them down the street to bring them to court, then so be it. If the defendant misses a court appointment, there are repercussions for the defendant themselves, but also some for the co-signer.
