Why Do Bail Laws Change?

February 17th, 2016 | Written by Bail Bonds Blog

The constitution makes provisions for bail bonds under the Eighth Amendment. It states that excessive bail is not allowed in areas where bail is permitted. Also, the Sixth Amendment allows a defendant who is being charged with a crime the right to know what they are being charged with, and then they can ask for bail if the charge falls under the category as a bailable offense. It's true that each state has jurisdiction over their own bail laws, but they also have to comply with the federal regulations too.

A farm-to-table program has been introduced in certain locations that is not only cutting the cost of maintaining prisons, but reducing the recidivism rate.

If someone has been charged with evading an officer of law in the state of California while driving a vehicle (Vehicle Code 2800.1-3), they would be well-advised to seek counsel from a licensed attorney and skilled bondsman. Remember, everyone is presumed to be innocent until their guilt is proven in a court of law. The fact they were arrested and charged is not an indication of guilt, only that the officer believes there is sufficient grounds to have them charged.
