Here Is Why You Need a Constant Dose of Positivity

artesia-bail-bonds-960

Positivity goes a long way” may be cliché but truthfully, it is very true. Positivity has the power to really turn a bad situation into a better one at the very least, even if it is not the best. Frankly, that should be good enough. So if you are pissed off after learning that your husband or wife is in jail and now you feel obligated to help bail or her out of jail, turn your scowl up just a little bit and look at bail like this:

Your loved one is coming back home.

Obviously, if your loved one has been arrested, they are going to sit in jail and they are going to be there until they can bail out. Your kids will start asking where Mom or Dad is, and it is painful to figure out how to tell them. It is painful just knowing your loved one is in jail, alone, and miserable...

How To React When You Learn Your Loved One Is in Jail

cerritos-bail-bonds-959

Coaching someone on how to react when they learn their loved one has been arrested and put into jail is nearly impossible. For one, no one anticipates such a call or has time to prepare themselves on how to react when they get the call. Secondly, it is such a heavy situation that all kinds of emotions will run high and low. Each person has a different personality and demeanor. Each defendant’s arrest situation will be different. Here are some tips we like to provide our clients with that might help you guide how you react when you pick your loved one up from jail after bailing him or her out.

  • Express relief and be sure to show your love and support. More than likely, your loved one will already feel embarrassed, ashamed, and absolutely disgusted with him or herself and the overall situat...

Jail-Bound College Students – Life Is Just Beginning

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.

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...

Our Favorite, Wacky Laws in America

long-beach-bail-bonds-957

Bored at work and want some fun? Try some light reading to educate yourself with some tips for when you travel to different states across America. We have compiled some of America’s wackiest, most absurd laws that are still in effect today. They probably are not heavily enforced thanks to how ridiculous they are, but if they are enforced, you can technically be fined or arrested.

  • In Alaska, you cannot give a moose a beer. So do not bother inviting them to your house party.
  • In California, no driver-less vehicle can go faster than 60 miles per hour. Yet, a driver-less vehicle going 59 miles per hour on the road is fine, because it is totally safe.
  • In Connecticut, a pickle will achieve true pickle status only if it bounces. If it does not bounce, it cannot be called a pickle...

You Can Vote While Out On Bail

long-beach-bail-bonds-956

American’s are getting pretty antsy now as the 2016 Presidential election draws nearer and nearer. Vote-by-mail instructions have already started going out to many, an indication that voting will happen in no time! There are certain requirements to be eligible to vote, the obvious being at least 18 years of age, actively registered to vote, and a U.S. citizen. However, there are a couple of lesser known restrictions because they do not affect everyone.

  1. If a court finds a person to be mentally incompetent, they may not vote.
  2. If a person is currently in jail or on parole at the time of the election, they may not vote...

The Countdown to EDC… And Jail

carson-bail-bonds-944

The ever-popular Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) music festival is a few weeks away and once again, it will be held in Las Vegas. The event draws hundreds of thousands of attendees each year. It has been held in Las Vegas over the past few years after moving from Los Angeles; the last time it was held in Los Angeles, an underage teen girl died of a drug overdose.

Her death was the worst, but not the only issue. Multiple people were arrested for drugs and alcohol, and that is not the only year, nor the only event where this happens. Music festivals like EDC seem to be multiplying every year and at every event, the police make multiple arrests. At a handful of events, someone will die from a drug overdose.

With EDC 2016 approaching, we hope that if you plan to attend, that you make good decis...

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?

Different Kinds of Trespassing

long-beach-bail-bonds-942

There is a reason for that “Do not enter” sign that is posted on the fence. Whether it is private property, a protected natural habitat, or a hazardous location, you should always obey that sign. Even if the area you are trying to reach consistently has visitors trespassing with little to no interruption from the police, does not mean it is legal. Some places that come to mind are Sunken City in Southern California and the Stairway to Heaven in Hawaii. It is still illegal and you could be the lucky one to get into trouble.

Most trespass offenses in California are misdemeanors, where penalties are up to 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. A small percentage of trespass offenses can be only infractions, where the defendant only pays a fine. However, a felony trespass, aggravate...

Smoking One Day, Being Denied the Next: CA’s New Smoking Laws

long-beach-bail-bonds-941

As teens, we looked forward to turning 16 because it is sweet, 18 because we become adults and can vote and purchase cigarettes, and 21 because we can drink. However, with a new law just about ready to make its rule known, there will be some change here, with one less thing to look forward to when turning 18. The legal smoking age will soon be raised to 21.

For many, this may not matter because they have no intention to smoke, but it is merely the liberty of being allowed to do so that matters. For others between the ages of 18 and 21, it will be awkward, uncomfortable, and frustrating to switch from being able to purchase cigarettes one day, and not the next day.

California is the second state to raise the minimum smoking age in an effort to curb smoking among teens and young adults...
