Brief Overview Of The Miranda Rights

Madera Bail Bonds

The Miranda Rights are a set of rights read to each person upon his or her arrest. These rights inform them that they have the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney. It is likely you have heard these rights read in a TV show or movie. Reading the Miranda Rights to all arrestees is standard procedure so they know how to properly protect themselves in these situations.

The Miranda Rights stemmed from a case where the defendant, whose last name was Miranda, admitted guilt to a crime. However, it was later found that Miranda was not aware he did not have to answer the police officer’s questions or that he could have an attorney. It was a forced confession. So to prevent this mishap from occurring in the future, the Miranda Rights were formalized.

There can be problems if someone is arrested, but not read their Miranda Rights.

If your loved one has been arrested, make sure he or she is aware of these rights. On top of the Miranda Rights, your loved one likely has the right to bail, as long as the judge did not deny bail. Once you know the bail amount, please contact Madera Bail Bond Store immediately so we can help you get your loved one out of jail as soon as possible. We can be reached online or at 559-674-0444.

The Dangers Of Prop 47

Madera Bail Bonds

Nearly 3 years ago, in November of 2014, Californians voted to pass Proposition 47.

Prop 47 re-categorized some non-violent crimes, making things that were once felonies, misdemeanors. The idea was to try to reduce the amount of prisoners in the state’s overpopulated prison system.

The measure reduced the following non-violent crimes from felonies to misdemeanors:

  • Simple drug possession
  • Shoplifting
  • Forgery
  • Check fraud
  • Theft
  • Receiving stolen property

However, they are only misdemeanors as long as the amount involved in the crime is less than $950.

The goal, as stated before, was to reduce the amount of inmates within California’s prison system. That goal has been achieved to some extent, since the prison population has gone down by over 13,000. This saves the state money, which is supposed to go to programs to help school truancy and dropout prevention, mental health and drug abuse, and victim services.

It can be easy to see how funding those kinds of programs could be beneficial, but there is a key detail there that many people miss. 13,000 convicted criminals were released with little more than a slap on the wrist.

This fact has, of course, had an effect on crime rates and not in the way that was originally intended. Numerous police chiefs across the state have reported that crimes rates are actually increasing due to this new law, not decreasing as promised. On top of that, many law enforcement officers have reported that they struggle to do their job properly anymore.

This is due to the fact that they cannot keep criminals locked up since many crimes are now considered misdemeanors. Due to prop 47, many officers are having to deal with what they dub frequent flyer criminals. These are criminals who are continually committing crimes, but cannot be punished for them because the value of the crime was under $950.

It is a pretty simple concept to understand. If you take away the threat of punishment, then you lose the deterrent that prevents people from committing crimes in the first place. If criminals know that they will not be punished for committing a crime, then they will continue to commit that crime.

Are You Getting Enough Sleep?

Madera Bail Bonds

Most people would agree that sleep is an amazing thing. It helps us separate one day from the next, as well as helps us recharge from a long day of working. Unfortunately, as much as we love sleep, there are many people out there that do not get enough of it each night.

These people think they are okay, but they do not realize that they are hurting themselves by not getting the recommended 8 hours of sleep each night. Not getting enough sleep each night can greatly reduce your effectiveness at work the next day. For example, not getting enough sleep can make a person moody and irritable.

The longer you go without sleep, the worse your symptoms will become. If the person continues to miss out on sleep, he or she can experience:

  • Apathy
  • Slowed speech
  • Impaired memory
  • An inability to multi-task
  • Lapses in attention
  • Nodding off during activities
  • Hallucinations

If you wish to avoid these symptoms and perform better at work, then you need to be sure to get a full eight hours of sleep each night. Doing this will ensure that you have the energy and mental capacity to tackle a new day.

If you struggle to get the proper amount of sleep each night, try using these techniques to help you get the rest you need.

  • Avoid caffeine, alcohol, smoking, and large meals before going to bed.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Keep your bedroom quiet, dark, and at a comfortable temperature.
  • Set a bedtime for yourself and stick to it.
  • Try waking up without needing an alarm clock and definitely avoid using any snooze features.

By following these practices, you should be able to get the good night sleep that your body needs to function properly. You will be able to wake up and face whatever the new day has in store for you.

Do You Have A Noisy Neighbor?

Madera Bail Bonds

Just about everybody has had to deal with a noisy neighbor at least once in their life, which is never fun. When we go home, we want to be able to rest and unwind from our day out in the world. We do not want to be bombarded by obnoxious sounds from our neighbors.

This is why most cities and even some neighborhoods have rules and laws aimed at controlling noise pollution. Many cities across the California and the rest of the country have created noise ordinances to help keep areas quiet at certain times.

These laws establish quiet hours for residential areas. Noises should be reduced during the evening, night, and early morning hours to ensure that people will be able to relax when they are in the comforts of their home. This means that no construction work can take place in the middle of the night near a residential neighborhood. It also means that neighbors have to keep it down.

In the state of California, it is illegal for any resident to knowingly create loud and unreasonable noises as a means of disturbing another person. If someone is caught for doing that, he or she can face a maximum of 90 days in jail and a fine of no more than $400.

The specifics of noise laws and ordinances depends on where you live, since cities, neighborhoods, and apartment buildings can have different rules regarding excessive noise. If you want to learn more about what could be considered excessive noise where you live, look into your cities laws regarding noise control.

Does The Cops Need A Warrant To Look At My Cell Phone?

Madera Bail Bonds

People’s cell phones nowadays hold a lot of information and secrets. When a police officer wants to look through your cell phone, in most cases, they will need a warrant. Here are some instances where a warrant will not be required:

  • 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 honestly, it does sound like it is a lot of 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.

The Differences Between Jail And Prison

Madera Bail Bonds

Jail and prison are technically not the same place; they’re not two terms that refer to the same institution. What are the differences?

  • Jails hold people for short-term periods – people who have recently been arrested but have yet to post bail, people who are waiting for trial, and convicted people who are serving short sentences (usually up to 1 year). Jails are run by local governments and police departments. Specialized services are typically offered, such as work release and programs that focus on education needs, substance abuse and others.
  • Prisons hold convicted individuals who are serving long term sentences for their crimes. Prisons are operated by state and federal governments. For individuals approaching the end of their sentences, they offer work release programs and halfway houses to slowly integrate them back into the community so that they can hopefully get into some work.

In California, jails and prisons are overcrowded; that is the sad, unfortunate truth. To help accommodate space, some convicts are being released early by having certain, lesser heinous felony charges reduced to misdemeanors.

A bail bond can help keep your loved one – who has yet to sit trial – out of jail; a bail bond cannot release a convicted criminal from prison. Learn more about bail bonds by getting in touch with Madera Bail Bond Store online or on the phone, just call 559-674-0444. Madera Bail Bond Store is available 24/7.

Understanding The Statute Of Limitations

Madera Bail Bonds

A statute of limitations is the time frame within which a person or party can file a lawsuit against another person or party for a crime. The time periods will vary depending on the crime that took place; the most heinous crimes like aggravated rape and murder have no statute of limitations. The clock for the statute of limitations begins at the point it is discovered that a crime had occurred.

Say for example a person has been arrested for sexual assault, which has a 6 year statute of limitations. The victim chooses not to file charges because of fear, embarrassment, etc. However, 3 years later, the victim decides to file charges. The court will allow that, because it is still within the proper time frame. But say 6 and a half years had passed – the victim can no longer file charges against their abuser for this crime. More than 6 years had passed and the statute of limitations is up for this specific sexual assault case against this specific person. If there are other victims, they each would have their own 6 years to file charges.

Victims of crimes as well as those who are accused of committing them will be notified of statute of limitations for the crime that occurred.

An arrestee can get out of jail, in the meantime, by posting a bail bond (as long as they have been granted bail). Learn more about bail bonds by talking to a bail agent at Madera Bail Bond Store and ask them about zero down bail bonds. Consultation is free and they are ready to answer any questions you may have.

Drink And Jail = Bail

Madera Bail Bonds

Summer is in full swing and we can tell you all are having the times of your lives. For some, however, they may be having a little too much fun. We seem to be bailing numerous individuals out of jail for having too much alcohol, then getting arrested because their actions while inebriated were not the best.

Madera Bail Bond Store cautions against over-drinking, and especially drinking and driving. Drinking alcohol impairs judgment, and the more that is consumed, the worse your judgment gets. Some people wind up in fights, others go home with the wrong person, and many unfortunately drive while intoxicated.

Sipping on beers, wines, spirits, and cocktails is perfectly fine, provided those who are drinking, are aware of their intake and their limits. The last thing anyone wants is for someone to get severely injured or for someone to be arrested. Some possible solutions to prevent this are cutting back on the drinks, designating a sober driver, taking Uber or Lyft, and you and your friends watching out for each other.

Madera Bail Bond Store is all too familiar with bailing these types of people out of jail, but honestly we are more than happy to do so because we see that they now understand the responsibilities and consequences they face. We will not hesitate to help you or your loved ones now or in the future.

Copyright Infringement

Madera Bail Bonds

Anyone who pops in a DVD never likes sitting through any of the ads. Fortunately, those can be skipped over. However, when you get to that blue screen with all those words about copyright infringement. You cannot fast forward or skip over that. You have probably never read the entire thing, but you know that it basically means you cannot copy the film.

That part is there for a reason, even though we see and know about it, people still copy movies, TV shows, and music all of the time. A lot of people do and they do not expect to get caught.

For many, that is going to remain true, but not everyone can get away with it. If you get caught infringing on a copyright, you could be slapped with a multi-thousand dollar fine and put into jail for a few years. You cannot say you did not know that what you were doing was wrong since a warning was placed in front of every movie.

Before you are actually acquitted or convicted, you are likely allowed to bail out of jail. This means you can live at home and have as normal of a daily life as possible while dealing with the trial. To get a bail bond, contact Madera Bail Bond Store online or on the phone at 559-674-0444.
