Community Service in Criminal Cases

Community service california

Many people find that they have to complete a specific number of hours of community service as a part of their sentence. Some people love this because the community service can reduce fines and jail time. Others hate having to do so much work without getting paid.

Judges have the right to make community service a part of a sentence. Sometimes the community service replaces fines, jail time, and probation. In other cases, it’s used in tandem with the other consequences.

Community service has become so popular amongst judges that some large communities discovered that they had to hire another person and even create whole new county offices just to help with the community service portion of sentencing...

Understanding Slander in California

Slander in california

Most Americans know that the First Amendment grants the right to free speech. The problem that many of us encounter is we don’t fully grasp the differences between free speech and slander.

How Can a Defendant Get Out of Jail?

Long Beach Bail Bonds

Long Beach Bail Bonds

Someone who is arrested has been accused of a crime. They are legally considered innocent until proven guilty in court, but their trial in court may not happen for some time after their arrest. What happens to the accused during this time? It is not fair to keep the accused in custody unless they are considered danger to the community, or they are likely to flee before their trial. If the defendant is deemed safe, he or she has the opportunity to post bail and be released from custody.

A defendant can post bail by paying the entire bail by him or herself, or with the help of loved ones. They will need to turn over 100% of the bail cost before they can actually be released, but this is refundable later on as long as they show up for their scheduled court date.
