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 ...

Cerritos Bail Bond Store provides affordable bail bonds for defendants who are held in California jails. Bail bonds are an alternative method to posting bail and costs only 10% of the full bail amount.

  • Debit and credit – Swing by an office to make a transaction, or go online and use our convenient and secure online payment portal.
  • Tax return – Technically this would just fall under any of the above because once your tax return clears and is in your bank account, you would then proceed to pay for the bail bond in one of the above ways...

What Juveniles Face vs. What Adults Face

Cerritos Bail Bond Store

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...

Do the Cops Need a Warrant for My Phone?

Cell phones are small objects that can hold a lot of information and secrets. When the police want to look through it, in most cases, they will need a warrant. Instances where a warrant will not be required are:

  • The owner gives consent to the cops to search the phone.
  • When the police stop a person with reasonable suspicion that a crime has been, or will be committed, and frisk them.
  • The phone is in plain view, the phone may be in plain view for the officers to take. However, when texts and phone calls are concealed, and the cops go through this data without reason, then the judge could throw out this as evidence.
  • It was seized during a search on public school property.
  • The police are in pursuit of the suspect who can easily destroy their phone, which holds evidence.
