    Lindsay Lohan
    She has had her fair share of legal issues. She definitely kept her bail bondsman busy, like in 2010 when she violated her probation multiple times. Her bail bondsman took care of everything and she was allowed to stay out of jail until her hearing.

    Nicolas Cage
    In 2011, his bail bondsman and friend, helped him post his $11,000 bail with a bail bond.

    Katt Williams
    He was out on bail in 2009, but failed to make his bail bond payments due to sheer lack of responsibility, not his lack of funds. Subsequently, he was re-arrested and ended up paying his own bail.

The Right To Post Bail

Madera Bail Bonds

You have the right to remain silent. This is the first clause of the Miranda Rights, a set of rights the police must read aloud to anyone they arrest.

You have the right to an attorney. This is the second clause of the Miranda Rights.

The purpose of the Miranda Rights is to ensure that defendants are fully aware of their rights. Even if they are being arrested and accused of committing a crime, defendants have rights. Years ago, when the police were not required to read the Miranda Rights, the validity of some defendant’s confessions, and even the police’s interrogation methods, were questioned. Some defendants were not aware they did not have to answer the police’s questions.

Today with the Miranda Rights in place, there is less room for error and confusion, and more room for a just case.

So What If You Have A Criminal Record?

Madera Bail Bonds

Having a criminal record is not exactly a good thing, however, having a criminal record is not the worst thing ever.

Though it may be a little weight to carry, your criminal record will not ruin your life. Have you ever considered that someone you know, whether your neighbor, coworker, or your child’s friend’s parent, has a criminal record? This is very possible and you could never tell because they have a family, they have a home, they have a job. They dealt with that dark period in their life, left it in the past, and moved on.

If you or someone you know is arrested, try and keep positive thoughts in mind. We won’t lie, it is a challenge to deal with, but soon enough it will all be in the past. Though you or your loved one will then have a criminal record, you can still accomplish life goals.

New Drone Regulations For Commercial Use

Madera Bail Bonds

(Some) drone operators and enthusiasts may rejoice – commercial use drones by businesses will no longer need special permission from the Federal Aviation Administration to fly the drone each time they wish to do so. There are still regulations and rules to follow, but it will be much less of a hassle in due time. Here’s what you still need to know:

  • Drones must weigh no more than 55 pounds.
  • Drones may fly no higher than 400 feet.
  • Drones may fly no faster than 100 miles per hour.
  • Operator must have a direct line of sight with the drone at all times.
  • Drones may not fly after sunset.
  • Drones must be kept away from crowds.
  • Operator must be FAA certified.

Again this applies only to commercial drone use, not private/personal drone use. Drones have been an issue with all kinds of people, from firefighters and police to pilots to individuals feeling like their privacy has been invaded. In some instances, the private drone operator can get in trouble (like causing a stall when the firefighters need to put out a fire). But hopefully new rules will take trend.

If for some reason someone you know has been arrested for mishandling a drone, please contact Madera Bail Bond Store, so that you and we can bail them out of jail immediately. We can be reached online or on the phone at 559-674-0444.

If You Think You Were Wrongfully Arrested

Madera Bail Bonds

In general, the public has less authority than the police. However, police authority can only go so far. They have certain boundaries and restrictions they must work within. In the instance that they make an arrest beyond the scope of their powers, they have made a false arrest and can get in trouble for it.

For example, a police officer makes an arrest based on another person’s statement. The court granted the police a warrant for this arrest. Later, it is revealed that the person lied. The person who was arrested is freed, and no false arrest was made.

However, if a person insults an officer and the officer takes it personally, arresting this individual would be false and wrong. This civilian did not commit a crime and they could take the police officer to court over the matter.

In regards to all persons who are arrested, bail bonds are available to get you or a loved one out of jail so that you can return home, go back to work, and better prepare yourself for court.

Responsibilities And Graduation

Madera Bail Bonds

S

ummer is approaching, and that means that many students will be finishing up their final school year. Graduation season is just around the corner. For many, they will no longer have to follow the set in stone schedule of their school five days a week. They will be free and facing new opportunities at college and joining the working world.

Responsibilities And Graduation

Graduation is a time to celebrate. Students have spent their entire lives working toward this moment. Once they walk across that stage and are given their diploma, they will be free to carve their own path.

As a parent, you may want to remind them of the responsibilities that come with this newfound freedom. For many, graduation comes at a time when the student becomes 18. The student is no longer a child and is a finally a full-fledged adult. While this milestone comes with a lot of perks, it also has a few drawbacks.

Before, if your child got into trouble with the law, he or she would be given back to you, the parent. Now, however, your son or daughter will be held accountable for his or her actions. If your child gets into trouble with the police, he or she could get arrested and sent to jail. Nobody wants that, so be sure to remind your son or daughter to be responsible with his or her actions.

After all, graduation is a time to celebrate, not a time to spend in jail. So let your child go out and explore this newfound freedom from school, just make sure he or she remembers to make good choices.

Rules Of The Road For Bicyclists

Madera Bail Bonds

California drivers, especially Los Angeles drivers, are known for being fast, impatient, and rude. However, if there is one group of people that drivers are more cautious of, it is the bicyclists. What are the rules of the road for car drivers and bicyclists?


  • When the biker is traveling slower than the cars, they must be as close to the right side of the road as possible unless they are passing or avoiding a dangerous/hazardous condition or making a left turn or approaching a right turn only lane but want to proceed straight. In those cases, the bicyclist may move away from the right side of the road.
  • Bicyclists Road Rules

  • If there is a dedicated bike lane, the bicyclist must be in that lane unless they are passing, making a left, or avoiding a dangerous/hazardous condition.
  • Bicyclists are to ride in the same direction as the traffic, not in the opposite direction. There are exceptions to this rule like if the street is a one-way or if the road is too narrow.
  • It is illegal to park on a bicycle path.
  • Bikes must be equipped with a visible white light in the front. They must also have reflectors: red in the back, white or yellow on the pedals, white or yellow on the front half of the bike, and red or white on each side on the back half of the bike.
  • Bicyclists 18 years or younger must wear a helmet. It is safe practice for adults to wear helmets as well.
  • It is illegal to drive and use a cell phone at the same time, but this law does not apply to bicyclists.
  • It is illegal to drive and have earphones in both ears. This same law applies to bicyclists. One ear must be free of headphones and headsets.
  • It is illegal to bike while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Bicyclists are required to stop at stop signs and red lights, just like drivers.
  • Bicyclists are to yield right of way to pedestrians at crosswalks.


Bicyclists share many of the same rules and etiquette as drivers do and they are entitled to be on the road with cars. However, both parties need to be aware of each other in order to avoid collisions and potential fatalities. They also need to be aware of pedestrians on foot.

Just like car drivers, bicyclists can actually be cited for violating the above laws and others that were not named, like if they biked right through an intersection that they should have stopped at because there was a stop sign.

Whether you travel by foot, car, bike, bus, or other mode of transportation, knowing the rules of the road and what your rights are is very important for yourself and to keep the road safe for everybody!

What Happens If You Are Stopped At A DUI Checkpoint

Madera Bail Bonds

Alcohol consumption increases during holidays and the weekends, and you can expect no different for Memorial Day weekend, which is right around the corner. Local law enforcement keeps up with this by setting more DUI checkpoints throughout the city. If you are unfamiliar with what happens at DUI checkpoints, here is what you need to know.


  • The purpose of checkpoints is to catch those who are driving while under the influence and get them off the road before they cause an accident.
  • Checkpoints are set up during the late night to early morning hours when people are bar hopping and heading home after drinking.
  • The police may or may not announce where and when DUI checkpoints will be set up.
  • When a car approaches a checkpoint, they will slow down and stop. The driver will roll their window down, so the officer can communicate with the driver and get a clear look at them.
  • The driver will show the officer their license, car registration, and proof of car insurance.
  • The driver will need to let the officer know where they are going, where they came from, if they have been drinking, and if so, how much.
  • The officer looks for signs of intoxication like slurred speech, the smell of alcohol on the breath, a flushed face, bloodshot eyes, and a lack of coordination.
  • The driver may need to take a breathalyzer test.
  • If the officer concludes that the driver is aware and alert to safely continue on to their destination, then the driver may leave the checkpoint.
  • If the officer concludes that the driver is too incoherent or drunk to safely continue on to their destination, they can arrest them on the spot.
  • It is legal for a driver to make a U-turn to avoid a checkpoint that they see ahead of them. If an officer sees a car doing this, they will not necessarily get in their patrol car and follow the driver to stop them. However, if they see them driving off erratically, then they will.

Thousands of people die each year due to car accidents where a drunk driver was involved. This statistic can be drastically lowered if adults acted responsibly and did not get behind the wheel when they had any amount of alcohol in their system. “Buzzed driving is drunk driving” is a message that needs to be conveyed.

Checkpoints are a major effort to curb alcohol-related accidents, but the police cannot do this all on their own. It is up to each and every person to be responsible and not get behind the wheel after drinking. There are so many other options for safe transportation these days.

If you are planning to go out drinking this Memorial Day holiday weekend, make sure you have a designated driver friend with you or call a cab, Lyft, or Uber to make sure you get home safely.

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.
