bellflower-bail-bonds-958

We have a special message to deliver to all college students: do not get yourself arrested. You are probably thinking, “Well obviously”, but in case you do not understand the true scope of the consequences, we are here give them to you.

Getting arrested means going to jail, being booked, and officially documented. You may have fines to pay for damages, hospital bills, and more. You will have to stand trial. You may end up going to prison. You will have this conviction on your permanent record. Future employers, banks, and landlords might have access to this. You may be suspended or expelled from your university. Through all of this, you will miss many important moments with friends and family.

Getting arrested can affect you for the rest of your life, but if you contact Bellflower Ba...

New York: Let That Expectant Mother Drink!

bellflower-bail-bonds-943

A pregnant woman is well aware that she should not drink alcohol, but even if she does order something alcoholic at a restaurant or bar, that establishment could refuse her that drink. Clearly, it is all for the good of the woman and her baby, but have you considered that the refusal could be discrimination?

That is how New York City sees this and they are now making it a law that restaurants and bars cannot refuse a pregnant woman an alcoholic drink. Studies have shown that a small amount of alcohol consumption will not harm the baby, but consumption should still be very closely monitored. People against this law and “practice” of expectant mothers taking the occasional glass of wine would argue child abuse. It is a touchy subject with many fine lines. What are your thoughts?

Weighing Pros And Cons Of Cash Vs. Bail Bonds

bellflower-bail-bonds-744

When a person is granted bail, they have two ways of paying for it: a cash bond or a bail bond. Here, we weigh both concepts:

    Cash Bond

  • Pay whole bail amount up-front; entire amount must be paid before defendant can be released.
  • There is no third party to deal with.
  • There is less paperwork to take care of this way.
  • Bail is 100% refundable, as long as defendant complies with release terms and goes to court. The refund comes in check form but often takes a few months to get back.
  • If the defendant does not show up in court, you lose your money, and perhaps your relationship and trust with the defendant from there on out. The defendant will be taken back into custody.
  • Bail Bond

  • Pay only 10% of the full bail amount to the bail bond company (third party), but it is not refundable.
  • The 10% is p...

What Is A Governor’s Pardon?

bellflower-bail-bonds-713

Not every hard criminal is a truly bad person that their criminal record might make them out to be. Some people are so determined to not let their arrest and conviction define them; they have the motivation to prove to others that they are a good and trustworthy person. For these very select individuals, they have the opportunity to be granted a California Governor’s Pardon.

A California Governor’s Pardon is an honor and privilege given to convicts who have shown outstandingly good behavior following their conviction. It helps provide relief for them from the penalties otherwise associated with a criminal conviction:

  1. The person may own a firearm, unless their conviction stemmed from a crime that involved one.
  2. The person may serve on a jury.
  3. The person does not have to register as a s...
