Crime is up across the country. Crime hits every walk of life. It hits those in the lower economic groups to those that live in penthouses. However, they all have something in common.

Falsifying Documents in California

December 31st, 2014 | Written by Bail Bonds Blog

Falsifying a document in the state of California can fall under a broad range of criminal offenses and penal codes. One example of a penal code section that a person may violate is section 112-117. Such penal codes involve the use, creation and sale of falsified citizenship documents to other parties. The crimes have extremely stiff penalties as they exhibit a characteristic of forgery. A person can violate a set of penal codes under the 470 bracket, as well. Such codes involve falsifying documents such as court papers, checks, credit card applications and so forth.  A person who receives a charge under penal code 112 may spend up to one year in jail and seek bail. The crime would be considered a misdemeanor in such a case.

What is Bail Bond Forfeiture?

August 29th, 2014 | Written by Bail Bonds Blog

Getting arrested and tried for a crime can be very costly. Lawyers can be expensive, there are court fees, and those charged can sometimes even be expected to pay out additional money if they lose the case, depending on its circumstances. Another area where people will be spending their money is for bail. They’ll get to pay this if they’re lucky, as not every defendant will be granted bail at all, particularly if they pose a major flight risk. The amount set for bail is often very high and can be extremely difficult to pay for a lot of people. Fortunately, there are companies that will secure that cost and allow people to walk free as they await their trial’s conclusion.

Hit and Run

August 4th, 2014 | Written by Bail Bonds Blog

A hit and run accident means that someone has been involved in a collision with another car, a pedestrian, or an object and has left the scene without offering possible aid or identifying him- or herself. In other words, the person "ran away." Leaving the scene of an accident in that way can be a felony crime or misdemeanor, mostly depending upon whether the person who left the scene also left behind someone who was injured. An accident in which a person leaves to get emergency help and then returns to the scene is not considered a hit and run in most states.
