What Is A “Bounty Hunter?”

call san-bernardino-bail-bonds

For some reason, the “bounty hunters” only sound like they’re in movies and tv shows. Because of how they’re depicted in pop culture, it’s hard to imagine what they really are and do in real life.

Well, in real life, bounty hunters work with bail bond companies when a defendant fails to show up for his or her court date. When the court notifies the bail bond company that a defendant has skipped court, for whatever reason, then the specific bail agent is on the line. This specific bail agent will need to pay off the full bail, but in an effort to avoid that loss, they will hire a bounty hunter to track the defendant down and return them to custody.

Bounty hunters may travel across state lines to bring defendants back into court if they had fled. They don’t always (actually, rarely) work with the local law enforcement if they do not have to, but occasionally they must, according to the law, even if the law is rarely enforced. San Bernardino Bail Bond Store rarely needs to use bounty hunters but as a warning, cases have dwindled down to that every now and then. We truly hope that you, needing our bail bond services, will not betray us in this manner or take us for granted. We really are on your side to help!

About Kaitlyn’s Law

call san-bernardino-bail-bonds

Kaitlyn Russell was a six month old who died after she was left alone in a parked car for over two hours. Her unfortunate death is the force behind Kaitlyn’s Law, which makes it illegal for a child 6 years or younger to be left unsupervised by anyone 12 years old or older in a vehicle. This is considered child endangerment, most especially when the sun is out, as the temperature inside the car gets hot very quickly. At the most basic consequence, violators can be fined $100. At the greatest consequence, a life like Kaitlyn’s could be lost and the parent can be charged more harshly.

Parents can easily get their errands done faster without having to bring their young child inside the store with them. But the risk is too great for your child and yourself.

Some parents do get arrested for neglecting their children in this way. If it happens to you or another parent you know, Penny Bail Bonds can help bail you or them bail out of jail.

What To Know Before Cosigning A Bail Bond


Before cosigning a bail bond, you may want to know what you’re getting yourself into. It’s a nice gesture to do for that friend or family member who was arrested because it shows you care and are supporting them through this ordeal. However, there are some very big risks that could be of concern, and we’ll lay them out right now.

    ● You agree to pay off the full bail bond if the defendant fails to appear in court.
    ● You must pledge collateral to support the bail bond.
    ● You must relinquish your pledged collateral if the bail bond is revoked because the defendant failed to appear in court.

You’re probably already aware, but pledged collateral is no inexpensive item. It’s typically real estate property, vehicles, and valuables like jewelry, electronics, and firearms.

Risks like that may completely deter people from ever cosigning a bail bond, even for their most trusted loved ones, but cosigners also do have powerful rights to protect themselves. They may withdraw their name from the bail bond at any time they wish if they feel that the defendant will skip court or violate the law again. By revoking their name from the bail bond, the defendant will be taken back into custody and the pledged collateral will be returned to them. Penny Bail Bonds can get into the nitty gritty details of being a cosigner; it’s imperative to know every last detail to protect yourself.

California’s Gun Laws And What They Mean To You


The purpose of gun laws is to regulate the use, sale, and possession of firearms. Each U.S. state may have different gun laws; California has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country.
In terms of owning and selling guns in California:

    ● A person must be at least 18 to purchase a long gun (such as a rifle) and 21 to purchase a handgun.
    ● Gun owners must pass a universal background check, which will be reviewed in no less than 10 days after applying for the purchase.
    Gun owners must also pass a written test.
    ● All guns are microstamped – each cartridge is stamped with an identification code so that in case investigators ever need to trace a gun to its owner, they can).
    ● Long guns with large-capacity ammunition are prohibited.
    ● No one may purchase more than one handgun in one month.
    ● Gun sales must be made through licensed dealers. Private sales such as through relatives or friends is prohibited.

Gun laws change frequently and new ones are constantly being proposed and perhaps passed. These are the new gun laws for this year:

    ● Family members may obtain a 3 week “restraining order” on a relative who owns a gun, and is displaying behavior that he or she intends to use it with harm. During these 3 weeks, investigators will probe the individual and the situation.
    ● Makers of toy guns must now include more distinctive markings on the product so that they are more clearly identifiable as toy guns, not real guns.
    ● The ban of guns on school grounds now extends to those who carry permits for concealed guns.

Gun debate is very sensitive but rightfully so. Safety is priority. People with guns must be very well-read on their rights.

If there is ever a need for a bail bond agent for someone who has been arrested (whether it’s related to gun use or not), contact San Bernardino Bail Bonds. We’re fully capable of helping bail anyone out of jail on the terms that they are able to pay off the customized payment plan and the defendant attends court as ordered.

Keep Up With Bail Bond Payments With Tax Returns

call san-bernardino-bail-bonds

When you start doing your taxes, you will be asked that in the case you paid excess taxes in the previous year, would you like the balance to be refunded to you or applied to this coming year’s taxes. The pros to either might be obvious:

    ● If you choose to be refunded, you will get a check in the mail or to your bank account, and soon you will be in possession of a little extra money for your use.
    ● If you choose to have it applied to your next taxes, then you will not have to pay as much in the end.

For some people, it may not matter which option they go with, even though they ultimately get to decide. But for others, they might feel inclined to have it refunded to them because they are low on money right now and really can use extra money as soon as possible to pay some necessary dues – such as bail bond payments.

Remember, it is imperative to not miss a bail bond payment because it will put the bond (and ultimately the defendant’s freedom) in jeopardy. Talk to your San Bernardino Bail Bond Store agent any time to get updates on payments and other news (but do keep track of them yourself too). Your San Bernardino Bail Bonds agent is there to help you through the whole process so you’re not left in the dark.

Don’t Spend Spring Break In Jail


Spring break for colleges is coming up in the next few weeks and already many are planning how they are going to spend that week. Some will be traveling. Some will return home. Most will be consuming alcohol and many may also get their hands on some illegal drugs

Basically, spring break is a time students want to relax, party, and not worry about school. The personalities range from the low-key type to the crazy wild one. There’s nothing wrong with letting loose and having fun but there are dangers to it and serious consequences if it gets too out of hand.

    ● Not all college students are legally old enough to drink.
    Illegal drugs are illegal to everyone.
    ● Drinking and driving is never a good idea, even if they are under the legal BAC limit.
    ● Mixing alcohol and drugs can be life-threatening, as can binge-drinking.
    ● People are susceptible to acting out abnormally and erratically when under the influence; for instance, they can hallucinate and do something that gets them killed like run out onto the streets in front of cars.

So much can go wrong when the partying levels get too high. It’s best to know the limits of yourself and your friends so that you all never meet the hospital, jail, or the mortuary. If you or your friends are arrested over spring break, your life is not over but you will have to reconsider your choices and style of living after bailing out of jail.

Penny Bail Bonds can help you bail out of jail wherever you are in California. If you are 18 years or older, your arrest will go on record, but you don’t have to face this situation alone. Friends and family can offer support and perhaps even help pay for your bail bond, which will be at its lowest when you go to Penny Bail Bonds.

A Guide To Understanding Bail In Real Life

call san-bernardino-bail-bonds-

What you watch on television shows are never the full truth and full story. There just isn’t enough time to watch every detail of how bail bonds work because showing that is not as exciting to the viewer as the high speed police chase part of the show. So, to help you understand how bail works in real life, keep reading.

    1. A person is arrested and booked.

    2. At their arraignment hearing, the charges are formally announced and the judge will decide whether the defendant is allowed to post bail or not. If so, the judge will announce the bail price, which is determined by the crime that occurred, whether or not the defendant has a criminal history, and what relationship ties he or she has to the community.

    3. If the defendant is offered bail, he or she has a couple of options to posting it.
    A) he or she, and anyone on their behalf, can gather up the money of the whole bail price and pay it. After that, he or she will be freed; their bail money is refundable as long as he or she goes to court as or
    B) he or she, and anyone on their behalf, can hire a bail bond agent. The bail bond agent is paid 10-15% of the whole bail amount over a payment plan. The defendant is released as soon as paperwork is signed. The money paid to the bail bond agent is non-refundable. The defendant will have to also go to court, otherwise they may need to pay the full price.

Because it’s all legal-this and legal-that, the concept of bail and bail bonds just sounds more confusing than it really is.

They deal with this strain in their relationship. Trust can be broken and whether it can be put all back together is an unanswered question. Some relationships unfortunately are never the same as they used to be. Others are able to rebuild their relationships again.

People With A Criminal Past Can Always Find Work

call san-bernardino-bail-bonds-

As we always attempt to reassure our clients, having been arrested is not “the end” for you. For many, getting arrested is simply a mishap. It will go on your record but it will not always haunt you for the rest of your life. People with a criminal past are very much capable of being granted a loan, getting a job, and getting an apartment or home.

For example, recently it was announced that the popular ridesharing service Uber has eased their screening process on their drivers who have a criminal record. According to Uber, this move of theirs is to closer align themselves with the state’s Prop 47. Prop 47, which was passed in 2014, redefines some non-violent felonies as misdemeanors (such as petty theft and forgery), giving offenders a “second chance.” As you might guess, this was met with mixed reactions from the public.

There will still be a screening process at Uber, but it won’t be as rigorous as before.

This is just one example to show that even if you do get arrested, you can still succeed in your future. You’ll have friends and family to support you, as well as your San Bernardino Bail Bond Store agent who you can rely on to help bail you out of jail as quickly as possible.
