You Do Not Need Drugs to Enjoy a Music Festival

call-ontario-bailbonds

Large outdoor music festivals and concerts invite attendees to bring their friends, enjoy some music, and have a whole lot of fun. Many outdoor festivals also offer food booths, carnival rides, and other attractions. They are advertised as a whole experience, where some even run for multiple days and offer overnight camping. While the festivals provide a whole lot of fun for attendees, they also cause issues that call law enforcement to break up the fun.

One of the biggest recurring problems with music festivals is the usage and possession of illegal drugs. While alcohol may be served at the event for those who are 21 and older, smuggling in and using drugs of any kind is illegal. Illegal drugs are illegal for a reason. They are harmful to the body, and people react differently to the drugs. Some can “handle” more than others, but any amount is unsafe. The more drugs a body has in the system, the more dangerous they are to themselves and others. When alcohol and drugs are mixed, the person is even more dangerous.

Remember that summertime concerts mean that attendees are burning through their energy under a scorching sun. Staying hydrated with water is imperative in order to avoid exhaustion, dehydration, and fainting. When this happens, paramedics come in, and that is also when they may discover the patient is under the influence.


If the police find someone under the influence of illegal drugs or in possession of them, they will take that person away in handcuffs. The person faces fines and some time in jail. If they are found with an excessive amount of drugs, they can face a few years in prison.


For a person to have a lot of excitement about a concert, only to have it end abruptly because of health complications or because they were caught with drugs is really unfortunate. That is money wasted, lasting memories never had, and time lost. Getting arrested is a lot of stress for a person and it may make them think again before taking drugs at a festival. Hopefully they realize they do not need drugs. Music festivals are no strangers to some drug abuse and arrests, but it needs to stop before it gets out of control and ruins the fun for everyone.

Understanding the Miranda Rights

call-ontario-bailbonds


The right to remain silent and the right to have a lawyer represent you are two rights every arrested person has. These are the Miranda Rights, which the police are required to read to every person that’s arrested.


The Miranda Rights are named after Ernesto Miranda, who was arrested in the 1960s and accused of kidnapping, rape, and robbery. During his trial, it was revealed that the police used intense and intimidating interrogation methods to lead him to confess. The court found this unjust and unfair, so his conviction was overturned. After additional evidence and eyewitnesses, he was eventually found guilty once again.

Miranda’s case, along with another in the 1960s, Escobedo vs. Illinois, brought about the Miranda Rights. The defendants in both cases were unaware of their full rights: the right to remain silent until their lawyer was present, and the right to have a lawyer during interrogation.

If a defendant is unaware of these rights, then they are more likely to offer a confession, whether or not they are truly guilty of the crime they are being accused of. In addition, without a lawyer, the police may use intimidating interrogation methods in order to force a confession. The suspect would give in, for they have no lawyer present to help fight back and protect them.

It is the suspect’s best interest to have a lawyer. If they can afford a private attorney who can specialize in the defendant’s case, they should go with that option. A private attorney will have more time to spend on the defendant’s case. In return however, they can be costly to afford. If the defendant cannot afford a private attorney, the court will appoint one to them. Court-appointed lawyers are neither ill-prepared nor unqualified, but they do tend to have more cases and clients to take care of than a private attorney. Thus, they must split attention and efforts across their multiple clients.

If your loved one has been arrested, the police will read them their Miranda Rights. It is very unlikely the police will neglect or forget to do so but in that small chance it happens, you can use that oversight as leverage. Make sure your loved one is aware of their rights, and from there take it one step at a time to get your loved one home and through trial.

Rainy Weather Driving Precautions

call-ontario-bailbonds

Rainy days are still ahead California, whether you are in Northern California where rainfall is more abundant, or you are in Southern California where it happens less often. Driving habits need to be changed when it is raining versus when it is a dry day to ensure road safety. Here are some helpful rainy weather driving tips that will help protect you and others from harm’s way.

  • The road is most slippery on the first day of rain.
  • Drive slower and leave more space than usual between your car and the car ahead.
  • Brake earlier than normal so the car behind you has extra time to brake as well.
  • Make sure all car lights are working: headlights, taillights, signal lights, brake lights, and high beams.
  • Make sure your horn is working.
  • Check your tire treads; if they need changing, change the tires. Also make sure the air is to level in your tires.
  • Turn your headlights on when using your windshield wipers, even if it is raining on a sunny day. This is the law.
  • If you feel your car hydroplaning, remove your foot from the gas but do not step on the brake. Just keep a steady grip of your steering wheel and you will feel your car gain traction again.
  • Do not try and operate your phone while driving. Not only is it unsafe, it is illegal. Pull over, turn your car off, and then use your phone.
  • Keep a phone charger in your car at all times, it can come in handy in an emergency.

All sorts of driving nightmares can occur when the weather is not on our side, but the more precautions drivers take, the better it is for everyone on the road.

Holiday Travel and Staying On the Nice List

call-ontario-bailbonds

Travel peaks during the holiday season as everyone goes on a holiday vacation to be with loved ones. We always try to remain on our best behavior, partially because we want to stay on Santa’s Nice List, but really, it is due to the fact that we are adults now. We do not want to run into any trouble with the law, especially when we are out of our own state.

Getting arrested outside of our own state causes more of a headache for the defendant than if he or she were arrested within their state. In some instances, the defendant may have a local lawyer represent them in court while the defendant returns home, but in other cases, the defendant will be required to appear in court. This may mean that the defendant has to prolong their stay in the state, or keep making travel arrangements back and forth. That is time and money lost for the defendant.

Ontario Bail Bond Store bails defendants out of California jails, but cannot help those who are arrested in other states, even if the arrestees are California residents. Ontario Bail Bond Store can only provide affordable bail bonds, customized payment plans, and around-the-clock friendly customer service.

If you ever need a bail bond for yourself, or a loved one, within California, please contact Ontario Bail Bond Store online or at 866-736-6977 .

Do the Cops Need a Warrant for My Phone?

call-ontario-bail-bonds

Cell phones are small objects that can hold a lot of information and secrets. When the police want to look through it, in most cases, they will need a warrant. Instances where a warrant will not be required are:

  • The owner gives consent to the cops to search the phone.
  • When the police stop a person with reasonable suspicion that a crime has been, or will be committed, and frisk them.
  • The phone is in plain view, the phone may be in plain view for the officers to take. However, when texts and phone calls are concealed, and the cops go through this data without reason, then the judge could throw out this as evidence.
  • It was seized during a search on public school property.
  • The police are in pursuit of the suspect who can easily destroy their phone, which holds evidence.

These are general exceptions to the warrant issue, and truthfully, it does sound like many exceptions. However, each exception goes into much more detail,and in actuality, a more specific instance within one of these general situations may suddenly require a warrant. If you are confused,just keep doing research and talk to a lawyer for the specifics.
