Making Social Media Threats in California

cerritos-bail-bonds

Social media has had a strange impact on many people. There is a sense of anonymity and protection associated with the internet that makes us feel comfortable saying things via social media that we would never dream of saying in a real-world situation. The good news is that most of us understand that there are certain things we simply shouldn’t say or do, not even online, and we’re able to get through the day without overstepping any boundaries.

The bad news is that there are some people, even some exceptionally mild-mannered individuals who seem to develop an entirely new personality while they’re online. They don’t just become pushy and/or overbearing as they engage in online battles, but they will actually post some extremely vile threats on their social media accounts or use s...

Elder Abuse in California

Elder abuse laws

Elder abuse laws

Society dictates that we take care of our elders. The idea is that they cared for us when we were too young to fend for ourselves, and now it’s our turn to return the favor. The problem is that some people don’t behave the way that society dictates and commit a crime that’s called elder abuse.

California’s elder abuse laws are designed to protect state residents that have passed their 65th birthday. Most victims are older and no longer able to completely care for themselves.

Elder abuse in California includes:

  • Emotional abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Physical abuse
  • Neglect

Elder abuse in California is one of the state’s famous wobbler laws. This means that you could be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony...

A savings account acts as a financial security blanket. Ideally, this savings account will be for future large wanted purchases like a wedding, a home, vacations, and your children’s college tuition. This is an account that should never be touched to withdraw money from – money only gets deposited into it. However, these savings accounts also come in handy when unexpected payments come up. A good example of this would be the sudden need to pay for bail.

Bail can be thousands of dollars, even if a person is bailing out of jail with a bail bond. Instead of having to scramble to get the money for bail, this person can hopefully get most, if not all, of the funds from their savings account.

There are many ways to grow a savings account, which include the obvious: saving a portion of each ...

What Juveniles Face vs. What Adults Face

Legally, anyone 17 or younger is considered a juvenile. When a person turns 18, they become a legal adult. A lot people enjoy this time because they feel they have more freedom, and in some respects, they do. However, in addition to the fun that comes with turning 18, there are also added responsibilities. There are big differences between juveniles and adults, especially when it comes to legal matters.

If juveniles are arrested for shoplifting or graffiti, they may have to perform community service and pay some fines, but they will not be sent to prison. They would stand before a judge who would report the consequences, then they would be released back to their parents. If an adult were to be arrested, they would face a jury who would decide whether to convict them of the crime or not...

Advice from Cerritos Bail Bond Store

Being out on bail is not a good reason to live your wild life again. If anything, it should be reason to tame yourself and scale back. Lay low. Surround yourself with supportive and positive friends. Do not succumb to bad influences and habits.

Bailing out of jail may be like a “get out of jail free card” in Monopoly or getting a second shot at your life, but you are encouraged to take this second shot and use it properly and most importantly, wisely.

Bailing out of jail is not a moment to celebrate by going out to a bar and getting wasted, or going for a joyride, or anything like that. It is a moment to celebrate quietly at home.

We do not want to scold you, or deter you from enjoying your newfound freedom. We merely want you to use your time wisely...

New California Smoking Laws You Should Know About

cerritos-bail-bonds-905

It is no secret that cigarette smoking is increasing among teens; not everyone obeys age limit laws. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration are constantly implementing new rules for smokers and the most recent ones focus on manufacturing, labeling and marketing, and not selling to those who are 20 or younger. The new rules apply to smoking cigarettes, cigars, hookahs, and also the more popular and “safer” e-cigarettes.

Everyone is well-educated on the risks of smoking – both for the self and for others passing by who inhale those fumes, which is called second-hand smoke. Despite knowing the health risks, people smoke anyway to relieve stress, to calm down, because of peer pressure, or because it’s “cool.”

The new regulations will take time to be implemented but note that violati...
