The thought or possibility of arrest is not a fun one for anyone. This can be a difficult and trying event, but it's one that you'll want to handle responsibly in order to make the process as painless as possible.  The help of a good bail bondsman helps to make the situation easier.  Things become more complicated when you have out of state arrest warrants. Just because you leave a state where you committed a crime does not mean the crime will go away. There are jurisdictional issues, of course, but you will often be asked to answer for your accused crime no matter where you end up.

July 11th, 2014 | Written by Bail Bonds Blog

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a serious offense that judges sentence to the highest degree in America. To be convicted of a DUI, a driver must have a blood alcohol level that is at least .08 percent. Drivers with commercial licenses can receive a citation for having a BAC of .04 percent. Underage drivers can be convicted of the same offense if they have a BAC of more than .01 percent. In the state of California, a first offense for DUI yields a jail term of up to up to six months and a fine of up to $1,000. A person who is convicted of DUI may also suffer a loss of license for up to four months. For those reasons, it is important for an accused person to take the necessary steps to protect himself or herself.
