Think You Are a Wanted Person?

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

Did you know that you can check, anonymously, if there is a warrant issued for your arrest? You would do it through us, Penny Bail Bonds in San Bernardino. We are a top bail bond company in California. One of our lesser known services is our ability to search for arrest warrants.

If you need us to, we will check the databases, anonymously, and see if there is a warrant issued for your arrest. If there is, then we can discuss your bail options, but we cannot execute anything until you turn yourself in and bail is determined. You see, the premium on the bail bond would be 10% of the full bail amount.

Many people wonder how a person would not know there is a warrant out for their arrest. Often even the smallest actions are overlooked as ways to lead to a person’s arrest. For example, a person received a parking ticket but did not pay it; they shrug their shoulders because they have not received additional warnings for overdue payment. However, this unpaid ticket can eventually lead to an arrest warrant; multiple unpaid tickets will get a person there faster.

If you would like us, Penny Bail Bonds in San Bernardino, to do a warrant search for you, do not hesitate to reach out to us anytime either online or at 866-736-6977. We promise 100% confidentiality.

If you need a bail bond, we can do that too, anytime. Our bail bonds are 10% of the full bail amount and we will work with you on a custom payment plan tailored to your financial situation. We accept all forms of payment: credit, debit, checks, and cash. Financing is also available. Again, we promise 100% confidentiality.


Reach out to us online or at 866-736-6977 whenever you need a hand.

How Juvenile and Adult Criminal Proceedings Differ

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

A parent whose child is arrested should know that juvenile court proceedings are not the same as adult proceedings. Juvenile Proceedings are less severe in that less people are involved, they are shorter, they involves less harsh consequences, and they ensure that the record is sealed once the juvenile turns 18. This is all done in an effort to protect the juvenile from being haunted emotionally by this event for the rest of their life.

A judge hears a juvenile court proceeding and there is no jury. The judge decides what the juvenile’s sentence will be and this is done based around the notion that the sentence is meant to offer rehabilitation, rather than a harsh punishment. This is so the juvenile can develop into a healthy and productive adult. Court cases are often over in one day, whereas adult proceedings can be weeks or months since they are quite complex.

call-sanbernardinobailbonds As mentioned already, a person’s juvenile record is sealed when they turn 18; it is like getting a fresh start when they reach adulthood.

When they’re arrested, juveniles are not eligible for bail. Juveniles are released back to their parents or legal guardians. Bail is reserved for adult arrestees.

That being said, if you know someone who has been arrested and is eligible to post bail, consider San Bernardino Bail Bond Store to get the job done. We offer free consultations where we will show you exactly what we do and how we can come up with the most affordable payment solution.

A Look at Some of California’s Gun Laws

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

Each state has different laws when it comes to guns, and California is a state with some of the most restrictive laws in the U.S. There are laws that mandate a minimum age to purchase, what types of guns may be purchased, how many guns may be purchased at a time, and how the weapons must be stored at home.

All guns must be micro-stamped. Each time the weapon is fired, it stamps a unique serial number to the bullet and case. This allows authorities to track a bullet back to the gun, and thus, back to the gun owner.

New this year, is the requirement to pass a background check anytime a person wants to purchase ammunition. A law from a couple years ago was the gun confiscation law, which says a person can report a loved to the police if they believe this person is going to misuse their gun. The police will confiscate the gun(s) for 3 weeks and conduct an investigation.

Keep yourself up to date on all of the gun laws, even if you are not a gun owner yourself. It is hard to say whether bail will be granted for a defendant who was arrested for a crime and a gun was involved. If they are, and they happen to be a friend or family member of yours, San Bernardino Bail Bond Store can assist with the bail bond process.

San Bernardino Bail Bond Store can be reached online or at 866-736-6977.

The Role of a Bail Bond Co-Signer

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

When a defendant is in the process of bailing out of jail with a bail bond, they will need a loved one to commit to the role of a co-signer. The co-signer is tasked with making sure the defendant shows up for their scheduled court date. How involved they are with this task varies from family to family, as it depends on how mature, responsible, and honest the defendant is. One defendant can get him or herself to court without trouble, while another may attempt to flee the city, which is when the co-signer really needs to step in.

If the defendant does not show up for court, their bail can be revoked and a warrant for their arrest will be issued. Additionally, any collateral that was pledged will not be returned to the owner.

Agreeing to the role of a bail bond co-signer definitely has its risks, which means it is important for the co-signer to really know the defendant well. However, a bail bond co-signer can actually have their name withdrawn from the role at any time. They face no consequences by doing this, except maybe some anger from the defendant, who would need to find a new co-signer.

If you continue to have questions about the role of a bail bond co-signer, or bail bonds in general, please do not hesitate to contact San Bernardino Bail Bond Store. We can be reached online, or at 866-736-6977.

The Bare Minimum of a First Time DUI is Expensive

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

If you are hitting the bar on St. Patrick’s Day, do not drink and drive. In fact, never drink and drive. It is a simple concept and hopefully, after knowing the cost of a first time DUI in California, it will be an even simpler concept to understand and follow. Here are the costly consequences:

  • License is revoked for a period of time. To get it reinstated, you need to pay $100.
  • Car insurance will increase for a few years and it all add up to the tens of thousands of dollars. Most people do not think of the long-term overall cost because they only look at it in the short term, but if you add up your insurance payments over a few years and compare it to the cost you would be paying if it was not increased, you will be surprised. The average is $40,000 total for 3 years.
  • You will need to take and pass a DUI course, which will cost at least $600.
  • Your car will be impounded and you are responsible for the towing and storage. Expect to pay at least $600 or more if the car is kept longer.
  • You can go to court without a lawyer, but it is not recommended to do this. Attorney fees can be a few thousand dollars. The average for a first-time DUI will be around $4,000.

We will let you do the math and add those average figures up. Also note that these figures are for first-time DUI cases where the driver is pulled over by a cop. The cost will increase drastically for repeat offenders, and those who end up in accidents since they will then be paying for hospital bills and car repairs.

This does not have to be you, just don’t drink and drive.

Juvenile vs. Adult Proceedings

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

There are different proceedings, rights, and consequences for someone 17 or younger who gets arrested versus someone 18 or older who is arrested. In most states, anyone 17 or younger is called a juvenile, and when they turn 18, they are called an adult. The differences are due to the fact that juveniles have less understanding of the law and are still considered minors.

  • Juvenile hearings are heard by judges only, whereas an adult has a trial by a jury.
  • Juveniles do not have the right to bail; they are released to the custody of their parents or legal guardians. Adults may be granted or denied bail.
  • Juveniles do not have a public trial.
  • On his or her 18th birthday, juvenile records are automatically sealed. So when they become an adult, their criminal record appears clean. However, the juvenile records still exist, but people who look into background history, like landlords and employers, cannot see these records.

Understanding these basic differences can help a great deal if you are suddenly in the middle of a situation yourself. If you, or your loved one, are 18 or over and has been granted bail, we strongly suggest you post bail with a bail bond from San Bernardino Bail Bond Store. Bail bonds are more affordable and, thus, more ideal to use than cash bail.

What Determines Own Recognizance Release

call-san-bernardino-bailbonds

Not all who are arrested are given the opportunity to be released on own recognizance. Own recognizance is when a defendant signs formal papers promising to show up for court, then is released from jail. Most defendants are granted bail, meaning they have to pay money to the court in order to be released from jail. Some are denied bail altogether. What factors determine own recognizance and bail?

    Who determines: The judge.

    What factors contribute: A defendant’s prior criminal record, the current crime he or she is accused of, the ties and relationships the defendant has to others in the community, and their financial ability to pay for bail.

As you can probably guess, if a defendant has virtually no prior criminal history, has strong ties to the community, and the crime he or she is accused of is not very serious, then this defendant has a much better chance at being granted own recognizance release. It is not guaranteed, but the chances are certainly better.

For those who are granted bail, there are two options: cash bail, or a bail bond where a third party bail bond company steps in to assist. Before making a rash decision and going the cash bail route, please contact San Bernardino Bail Bond Store. We will help you understand more about the bail bond industry and how our company can benefit you. We can help you save money and get you, or your loved one, bailed out of jail faster. It takes just a few minutes to contact San Bernardino Bail Bond Store for a free consultation. You will not regret it.
