California: The Sanctuary State

California: The Sanctuary State

California: The Sanctuary State

For those unaware, the start of the new year also marked the start of California being a sanctuary state. The controversial decision to become a sanctuary state was decided on by California politicians at the end of 2017. At the beginning of October, Governor Jerry Brown signed it into law, and the law would take effect on January 1st, 2018.

By becoming a sanctuary state, California has announced itself a safe place for undocumented and illegal immigrants. The new law effectively limits what state and local law enforcement agents can do to assist federal immigration authorities. The law bans enforcement agents, at both the local and state level, from enforcing immigration holds on arrested individuals.

This new law is in direct defiance of President Trump’s calls to focus on deporting millions of undocumented and illegal immigrants. This only led to a greater rift between Washington D.C. and the state of California.

Many California police chiefs opposed the bill in its early stages, and switched to a neutral stance when the bill was later amended. However, many still express concerns for the safety of the general public. They fear this new law will allows certain career criminals, ones who stick to lower levels of crime, will be continually released back onto the street due to the new law.


Only time will tell if California’s decision to become a sanctuary state was a good idea or not.


New California Marijuana Laws for 2018

New California Marijuana Laws for 2018

New California Marijuana Laws for 2018

It’s a brand new year, and that means new laws for Californians. One of the big ones this year, is the ability for marijuana dispensaries to legal sell their product to anyone who is over the age of 21. This is something that some Californians are very excited about, however, they need to realize that there are still restrictions on how and where marijuana can be used.


Starting January 1st, licensed marijuana dispensaries will be able to sell their products to of age, legal adults. Anyone under the age of 21 is not legally permitted to buy or use marijuana in any form.


If a minor is caught using then they will be required to take a drug education course and perform community service. Any dispensary caught selling product to a minor will risk losing their license and paying a hefty fine.

There are also restrictions for where marijuana can be used, just like there are restrictions for drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes. For instance, marijuana cannot be smoked in public areas, or near schools. A person is also not allowed to drive while under the influence of marijuana.

The use of marijuana in California has been approved for recreational use. This means it can be used by a person in the privacy of their own home. They cannot use it in a way that disturbs other people. If a person plans on enjoying this new law, they need to make sure they understand all of the laws surrounding the use of marijuana. If they don’t they could find themselves in more than a little bit of trouble.

Drive High, Get a DUI

Drive-High-Get-a-DUI

2018 is bringing a lot of new changes to California laws. One of the biggest is that licensed dispensaries will be able to sell marijuana to anyone who is over the age of 21. This new law will make it easier for individuals to get ahold of marijuana, which will likely lead to more people using this. Unfortunately, this can include drivers.


A person should never get behind the wheel of a vehicle when they are under the influence of any kind of substance.


Doing so can negatively affect their ability to safely drive a vehicle, and lead to an accident. This is why the California Highway Patrol (CHP) has started a new campaign: Drive high, get a DUI.

This new campaign is to remind everyone that it is illegal to drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. This includes driving while high on marijuana. Being high can impair a person’s motor skills and reaction times. This makes them more likely to get into an accident than drivers who do no smoke marijuana.

In an effort to keep the roads safe, the CHP will pull over anyone who they suspect is driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If a person wishes to avoid this, then they need to be safe while driving. This means they should not drink alcohol, or ingest marijuana, before getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.

It is Illegal to Misuse 9-1-1

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

When there is an emergency that requires immediate professional attention and care, the number to dial is 911. Emergencies include reporting a fire, or a car accident. Basically anything where fire, police, or medical attention is needed in order to save a life, reduce damaged property, catch a criminal, or rescue someone.

Emergencies do not include a restaurant running out of the barbecue sauce you wanted, really disliking your neighbor because they play loud music all the time, or not knowing how to unclog your toilet. There are certain times when calling 911 is and is not warranted for an incident.


In every state, including California, it is illegal to dial 911 if it is not an emergency. A person who abuses the hotline can be charged with an infraction and fined. They can even put into jail.


To provide some perspective, a person can be fined up to $1,000 and put into jail for up to 6 months if they repeatedly call 911 with the intent to annoy or harass another person, such as a neighbor they strongly dislike. For other instances where 911 is dialed for non-emergency related incidences, the person can be fined as much as $200 per dial.

Misusing 911 ties up the call center’s hotlines. This means that people who are calling for a true emergency must wait even longer to get the assistance they need immediately. Additionally, the more times a single individual dials 911, the longer others have to wait. That amounts to crucial seconds and minutes lost for those who really need emergency services.

You need to use your best judgement to know when to dial 911. If you are unsure, it is best to call 911 anyway, just in case. Before dispatching the police, an ambulance, or the fire department, they will ask you a few questions in regards to the situation to help them assess and evaluate the need for assistance. Then, they will quickly dispatch emergency services. Other times, the matter can be resolved right then and there with them guiding you over the phone or explaining, for the future, what would or would not be an emergency call. They are careful when explaining this since they do not want to discourage people from ever calling 911 again.

Is it Worth Fighting a Traffic Ticket?

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

When you get a traffic ticket for speeding or running a stop sign, you can easily pay it, but you wonder whether it is worth fighting the ticket. You might be able to get it reduced or thrown out altogether. In some cases, it can be worth it to fight. However, it is not always the easiest or fastest thing to deal with. In the long run, you may end up losing more money on wasted time. Before you decide, evaluate the pros and cons, including how disruptive it could be to your daily routine and how much you have to gain or lose financially. You need to look at not only your ticket, but your insurance premiums that could increase due to the ticket.


You can get out of paying for a traffic ticket if you show up for court, but the officer does not. This results in an automatic win for you because you are being denied the right to question your accuser.


If you postpone your court date and even choose one close to the holidays, you could be increasing your chances on having a no-show from the officer. Officers tend to schedule all their court appearances on the same days so they can do them all at once. If you can get the date moved, you could be in luck. If you get a date close to a major holiday, there is a chance the officer is off on vacation. The officer also may not show up for court if your ticket is inexpensive and is for a very low-level incident.

If you get a ticket based on camera footage, the ticket can get dismissed if the court does not have the video or picture. The courthouse may not want to go through the trouble of acquiring that video footage which means you win and do not have to pay the ticket.

There are other ways to fight a ticket, like getting a lawyer who specializes in traffic cases, but the ones mentioned here are the easiest, fastest, and most affordable ways to get out of paying for the ticket. These depend on your luck, but there could be a chance that luck is on your side.

Stunts Gone Wrong

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

The rise of YouTube has created several celebrities on the web. The site has made it possible for ordinary people to create their own fame. This has led to hundreds of thousands of people trying to climb their way to the top. Some of these people, attempt to do crazy or insane stunts to gain a following and get views.

More often than not, these stunts end in disaster. Someone ends up getting hurt, or worse, because the performer fails to do the stunt safely. They try to do the stunt right away, without any sort of rehearsal or testing.

Recently, a Minnesota woman accidentally shot her boyfriend while trying to film a stunt for a YouTube video. The plan was for her to shoot a .50 caliber Desert Eagle at a book that her boyfriend was holding in front of his chest. The thought was the book would stop the bullet. Unfortunately, that was not the end result. The woman now faces second-degree manslaughter charges and could face 10 years in prison.


The lesson here, is to not do something dangerous or life threatening just to gain popularity. It is not worth hurting yourself, or someone else. The consequences for messing up, can be far worse than you even realize.

What Appears on Background Checks?

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

Your skills qualify you for the job you are interviewing for and you hit it off with your interviewer. They tell you that unofficially, you have the job. They just need to do a background check and get the paperwork in order. Once everything clears, you are hired! However, you are worried that your potential employer will discover something on your background check that will put you in jeopardy of getting the position.

Background checks are standard procedure for job positions. They are also standard for other needs, like trying to get a home or an apartment. They are legal to do so long as the company complies with the federal and state laws on conducting background checks. The employer just wants to know if you have once been arrested for a crime.


When they conduct the background check, misdemeanors and felonies that have occurred in the last 7 years will show up. Infractions and any crimes that you were charged for that occurred over 7 years ago will not show up on your background check.


Additionally, if you received a pardon on a conviction, then that conviction will not show up on a background check. Sealed and expunged records will also not appear on background checks. Finally, if you had successfully completed a diversion program because of an arrest, then that arrest does not show up on your record either.

The chances of the employer denying you a job purely because of your criminal record is slim. If you are worried, you can discuss your concerns, but only if the employer brings up the topic.

Having a criminal history is not going hold you back from getting a job or home. Do not stress about that. If anything, it proves you dealt with something big and you managed to get through it professionally and maturely. That is a positive way to look at it, and hopefully your potential employers will think the same as well.

No More Suspended Licenses for Californians

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

Normally, when a driver amounts enough unpaid traffic and parking tickets, a judge will suspend that person’s license. If this person continues to drive while their license is suspended and has a run in with any law enforcement, he or she will be in big trouble. Driving on a suspended license can carry some hefty penalties. The severity of the penalty varies depending on the reasons for the suspension, but usually includes paying fines and possible jail time.


However, that is all about to change in California, at least for some people. Starting in August, California drivers will no longer face a suspended license for failing to pay traffic and parking tickets.


This new law was championed by Senator Bob Hertzberg and Governor Jerry Brown. After a little bit of research, Governor Brown determined that the punishment of the suspended license does not help the state collect unpaid fines. He goes on to argue that the punishment only worsens the load on low-income families by preventing the person from being able to go to their job. The idea of the law is to prevent the state from punishing someone for being poor.

While this new law will prevent judges from suspending a driver’s license for too many unpaid parking or traffic tickets, it will not completely remove suspended licenses. Judges will still be able to suspend a person’s license for failing to appear to court and other reasons as well.
