California’s Sanctuary Cities

Bail Bonds in Madera

Los Angeles is among California’s self-proclaimed sanctuary cities. There is no formal definition of a sanctuary city, but in general, it is one that vows to protect its immigrants from deportation. In the United States, there are an upwards of 300 sanctuary cities. Some tips for immigrants would be:

  • Make copies of your visas and green cards. Keep a copy safe at home, give copies to trusted loved ones, and carry a copy on you at all times.
  • If you are stopped by the police, you do not need to reveal your immigration status.
  • If you are arrested, you have the right to remain silent, the right to bail, and the right to a lawyer.
  • Your arrest does not prompt an automatic deportation. You actually have people fighting for you: family, friends, strangers, and non-profit groups.
  • You can get your child enrolled in school or you can secure health care, for instance. These are a few things the local government in sanctuary cities want to do to help.

President Trump’s recent immigration ban has millions of people worrying and millions of people fighting against. If you are an immigrant, or you know someone who is, know that you are not alone. You have loved ones and so many strangers on your side.

California Laws You Did Not Know You Were Breaking

Madera Bail Bonds

Most laws that you should obey and not break are no brainers; do not steal, do not vandalize, do not trespass, and do not drink and drive. So what you do in your regular routine is probably filled with things you are doing 100% right, however, you may be breaking some laws without even knowing it but do not worry, you are not the only one.

  • Any Mylar balloons, the foil kind, that hang out about 5′ or more for advertising and promotional means or totally releasing them into the air altogether is illegal.
  • You may not bathe your babies, twins included, in the tub at the same time. One must go first, then the other.
  • Singing “Happy Birthday” is copyright infringement and so anytime you are singing it, you are breaking the law.
  • Using a fake name anywhere on the internet is illegal, including using a fake name for Facebook and dating sites.

Though you have probably broken at least one of these multiple times, the happy birthday one, does not mean that next time it happens you will be arrested. Frankly, it is highly unlikely you would be arrested for ever singing “Happy Birthday” to someone.

We thought it might be fun and interesting to know these.

When A Search Warrant Is And Is Not Needed

Madera Bail Bonds

There are many times the police would need a search warrant to go through a person’s belongings or property, but there are also times where a search and seizure warrant is not needed. This includes:


  • The individual voluntarily consents to a search.
  • Inspection searches like border patrol.
  • Illegal and incriminating items and contraband are in plain view.
  • “Stop and Frisk” situations where the police officer temporarily detains a person to search for weapons.
  • Emergency situations where the search and seizure is necessary at that moment to prevent a crime from happening.
  • Searches incident to a lawful arrest.
  • When the police have probable cause a vehicle contains evidence of a crime.

When the police do need a warrant, they obtain this from a judge. The warrant will list the locations and/or items that are allowed to be searched. The officers are not allowed to search anything or anywhere that is not listed in the warrant. So, if the warrant lists a home’s living room only, then the officer may not search the bedroom.

However, this does not mean the officer cannot seize something that was not listed on the warrant. For example, the officers are searching the living room for illegal drugs. While they are looking under the couch cushion, they come across weapons. The officer is allowed to seize those weapons.

Warrants are also required in order to go through a person’s cell phone and computer. These items would need to be listed on the warrant in order for the officer to search and seize.

Remember, although the police are authoritative figures, the public still has rights. People have the right to deny a search, but when the police come back with a warrant, then there is nothing the individual can do about it. If they have worries, they can consult with a lawyer.

What Are Your Rights As An Airline Passenger?

Madera Bail Bonds

The recent United Airlines incident involving a man being dragged off his overbooked flight has everyone wondering what their rights are in this kind of situation. The flight, heading to Louisville, KY, from Chicago, IL, was overbooked. No passenger volunteered to give up their seat, even after the airline offered accommodations and up to $800 in cash. At this point, they had to select 4 people to deplane. One man who was selected, refused to get off. Security officials were then called to escort the man off the plane, and the situation spiraled downward from there. As seen on cell phone footage, the passenger was forcibly removed from his seat. His head was knocked against an armrest and then he was dragged down the aisle, off the plane.

This incident brought heavy backlash against United Airlines, and has left everyone wondering what their rights are when an overbooked flight needs passengers to give up their seats. Airlines are allowed to overbook their flights, it is standard practice, because often times, passengers do not show up.

What are the rights of the passengers?

  • The airline must ask for volunteers before kicking anyone off.
  • The airline will often offer overnight accommodations or a free flight to those who give up their seat. However, the passenger can also ask for cash, you will just need to speak up to the airline because they will not necessarily offer this off the bat.
  • Rights Of Airline Passengers

  • If you are kicked off your flight, there are federal rules that the airline must follow. Fliers are supposed to get to their destination within an hour of their original flight. If they arrive 1-2 hours later or 1-4 hours for international destinations, the airline must pay double the original one-way fare with a $675 limit. If they arrive after 2 hours or 4 hours for international destinations, the airline must pay 400% of the one-way fare, up to $1,350.
  • The airline will usually take certain factors into consideration when deciding who to kick off a passenger, but these policies are not standard across all airlines, because each carrier decides these rules themselves. For example, the airline may kick off a person who checked-in very late. Or, they will kick off a person who does not frequently fly with this particular airline.
  • The Department of Transportation recommends passengers wait to cash their check. If they wish to pursue more money from the airline at a later date, they have more bargaining power with their original voucher or check. Once they cash it, they lose some ability to ask for more.

An airline needing to pick people to depart their overbooked flight does not happen very often. Usually there will be no shows or some passengers will voluntarily give up their seat. In the small percentage of flights that passengers do need to be kicked off, the passengers deplane without incident. Unfortunately, this incident was no such case, but it did bring up some important issues that could affect you in the future. If you ever plan on flying anywhere, with any airline, know your rights and know the airline’s policies.

Copyrights And Public Domain

Madera Bail Bonds

If you have ever tried to create something like a website, book, or video, then you most likely ran into two terms: copyrights and public domain. These two terms are very important whenever you create something new. However, not everyone knows what these terms mean or how they might affect you.


Copyrights And Public Domain

  • COPYRIGHT: A copyright is a form of intellectual property. This means that the creator of something, typically has the only rights to it and no one else can reproduce or use any aspect of the copyrighted material without the creator’s consent. A copyright typically lasts for the duration of the creator’s life, plus 50 to 100 years depending on various factors such as country of origin.
  • PUBLIC DOMAINS: Public domain is anything that is not protected by a copyright. This can mean that a piece of work was never copyrighted, was created before copyrights existed, or has lost its copyright protection. Works that are in the public domain can be used freely by anyone.

As you can see, from a creator’s standpoint, a copyright is incredibly important and valuable. It ensures that the creator remains in control of his or her creation, and that no one else can claim it as their own.

However, from the public side of things, copyrights can feel like they are in the way. This can be especially true for fans of different media who feel inspired to make something based on someone else’s work. One such instance of this would be fan fiction.

For those who do not know, fan fiction is a story created off of a famous piece of work. This new bit of work typically involves one or more of the original work’s characters and possibly the settings of the original work as well. A famous example of this would be E. L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey, which started out as a piece of fan fiction of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. These works are typically heavily derived from the original work, and can thereby be classified as copyright infringement. If a piece of work is copyrighted, the original creator can take legal action against anyone who has created something derived from the original work.

Ultimately, copyrights are meant to protect creators and their creations. They ensure that a creation continues to be used how the creator sees fit.

Public domain is all about the people. Anything within the public domain can be considered free use, which means anyone can make something from it. Some works that are within the public domain include:

  • Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland
  • Pride and Prejudice
  • The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
  • Ulysses

The Wizard of Oz also falls into this category, but it is unique, in that only the book is considered to be in the public domain. The movie itself is still under copyright protection and is owned by MGM Studios. It is one of the few pieces of work out there, where the original book is in the public domain, while the movie is still protected by copyright.

So, if you want to create something based off of something else and then make money off of it, make sure the original work is actually within the public domain. If it is not, then the owner of the copyright can take legal actions against you, which would mean a lot of trouble for you. Do your research first before starting a project. It’s better to be safe.

Do Not Let Yourself Get Conned

Madera Bail Bonds

Are you a grandparent who has recently gotten a call from someone stating that your grandchild has been arrested and needs your help? If so, proceed with caution. A recent series of scams involves pretending to be a grandchild in need of financial help to get out of jail.

The scam is simple enough, the scammer contacts their target, usually someone’s grandparent, and either pretends to be the grandchild or someone calling on behalf of the grandchild. They state the grandchild has been arrested and that they need the target’s help to get out of jail. They will request financial aid and ask that their target not mention the arrest to any relatives in order to avoid embarrassment.

If this sounds like you recent call, do not send any form of money. The first thing you want to do is begin asking questions that only the grandchild would know. You can asks things like:

  • “When was the last time we saw each other?”
  • “When is my birthday?”
  • “Why didn’t you talk to (insert a relative they are close to here)?”

However, you need to be wary of some of these answers, thanks to social media. Social media sites and apps like Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat have made it easier for scammers to get ahold of personal information. Scammers may be able to find the answers to your questions if your grandchild shares a lot of information online.

A better way to find out if the call is a scam or not, is to talk with relatives who are close to the supposed grandchild who called. Talk to his or her parents, you might find out that the grandchild is safe and sound.

You first option is to follow the caller’s wishes without confirming his or her identity and risk losing thousands to a scammer. Your second option is to talk to family members and confirm whether or not you need to help your grandchild out. Risking possible embarrassment is the better of the two options you face.

Be careful out there. Make sure you ask questions before giving informations or monies to people you have never met before.

What To Know About Bail Bonds & How It Can Help You

Madera Bail Bonds

If a person who is arrested and granted bail, but cannot afford it, they should not give up hope. 100% cash bail is not the only option to posting bail. Bail bonds are the alternate solution that most people opt for.

Rather than paying 100% of the bail, the defendant and any loved ones willing to help, will pay 10% of the bail to a reliable and credible bail bond company like Madera Bail Bond Store. The defendant gets a custom, flexible payment plan so this 10% is broken up into smaller increments. Not all of the payment is due before the defendant can be released; the payment plan will continue after the defendant is released from jail.

The bail bond may also require a co-signer or collateral, but the Madera Bail Bond Store bail agent will go over the specifics with each family, as it is a case-by-case basis on what exactly is needed.

As long as the defendant continues to make their bail bond payments on time, shows up for their court dates, stays out of any other legal trouble, and abides by any other release terms and conditions, then the entire bail bond process will be successful. At the end, the 10% premium will not be refunded, but the collateral will be returned and the co-signer will be released from his or her duties.
