What To Do If You’re Arrested In Laguna Beach

September 28, 2016 Comments Off on What To Do If You’re Arrested In Laguna Beach posted by: Bail Expert
 

When someone is arrested by a member of the Laguna Beach Police Department, the first thing they’ll want to keep in mind is to stay calm.  Arguing with law enforcement officials, trying to escape and/or trying to talk their way out of the arrest will not do the defendant any favors.

Arrestees should be cooperative, provide basic answers to basic questions (name, address, etc.) and they should refrain from discussing the details of their case with anyone if they do not have an attorney present.  Once they arrive at the jail, they will be provided access to a telephone, at which point they will want to try to contact a friend or family member to ask for help with starting the bail bonds process.

While the defendant is in custody, they should be polite, refrain from making heated political or religious statements and they’ll want to keep in mind that they are not in there to make friends.  For more information on how someone should handle themselves if they are arrested, or for more information on how the Laguna Beach bail bonds process works, call our office now at 888-224-5266.

Getting Laguna Beach Bail Bonds On A Weekend

August 9, 2016 Comments Off on Getting Laguna Beach Bail Bonds On A Weekend posted by: Bail Expert
 

Our friend was arrested last night after he got in a fight outside one of the bars.  We want to get him out ASAP but someone told us that we can’t get bail bonds on a weekend.  Is that true? He has work on Sunday and we’re trying to make sure he doesn’t miss his shift.

The good news is that whoever told you that has their facts wrong.  Bail bonds in Laguna Beach can be posted at any time, day or night, weekends and holidays included.  And since the Laguna Beach Jail is one of the smaller facilities in Orange County, the release times tend to be pretty quick. In most cases, defendants are released within 30 minutes of their bail bonds being posted. At this point, you’ll want to reach out to an Orange County bail bonds agent to start the process. The bondsman can help you understand how bail works and what you’ll need to do to help get your friend out of jail fast.

Is It Hard To Get FTA Bail Bonds In Laguna Beach?

July 18, 2016 Comments Off on Is It Hard To Get FTA Bail Bonds In Laguna Beach? posted by: Bail Expert
 

My husband was arrested on a failure to appear warrant.  We never got the warrant notice in the mail and we had no idea he was supposed to go to court.  I’ve heard that it’s much harder to get bail bonds for FTA charges.  Is this true?

There is no cut-and-dry answer to this question.  The best we can say is “sometimes.”  When someone is arrested on a failure to appear charge that can, in many cases, lead a bondsman to believe the defendant has a higher risk of not going to court and finishing their case.  On the other hand, California bail bonds companies have worked with many clients who have strong community ties, have good credit and are otherwise considered to be a “low flight risk” who find they are arrested on this type of charge because they never got the notice to appear in the mail. When you start the process of hiring a Laguna Beach bail bonds company be straightforward about your situation.

Laguna Beach PD Arrest Alleged Drunk Driver At Checkpoint

June 12, 2016 Comments Off on Laguna Beach PD Arrest Alleged Drunk Driver At Checkpoint posted by: Bail Expert
 

A source within the Laguna Beach Police Department released that two people were detained at a recent DUI checkpoint. Approximately 1,000 motorists drove through the checkpoint throughout its hours of operation, according to a report by the LA Times.

One person was arrested after they chose not to stop, but instead drove through it.  The car was eventually pulled over and the driver was taken into custody.  It was later determined that he was not impaired, but had a mental disability. He was released without needing to post bail bonds and was given a citation for misdemeanor evading.

Another driver was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, officers said. The name of that motorist was not released to the press.  Most people who are arrested and booked at the Laguna Beach Jail on misdemeanor DUI charges are released from custody on their own recognizance.

Alleged Burglar Booked At Laguna Beach Jail

April 25, 2016 Comments Off on Alleged Burglar Booked At Laguna Beach Jail posted by: Bail Expert
 

A spokesperson for the Laguna Beach Police Department has confirmed that three LA residents have been arrested and booked at the Laguna Beach Jail.

Jail records indicate the suspects are believed to have stolen thousands of dollars worth of clothing from a downtown boutique.

Police say they spotted the burglary as it was happening; one officer saw a woman walking out of the high-end retailer with an armful of clothing.  A second man followed her, police said, adding that his arms were equally full.

The pair tried to make a run for it when they realized they’d been made but the foot chase didn’t last long. Officers said they recovered more than $10,000 worth of stolen goods; a third suspect was also arrested in conjunction with the crime.

Two of the three were arrested and booked at the Laguna Beach Jail on charges of burglary and conspiracy.  The third suspect was identified as a 16 year-old female; LagunaBeachIndy.com notes she was released to a parent.

Can I Get A Message To Someone Who Is Being Held At The Laguna Beach Jail?

March 23, 2016 Comments Off on Can I Get A Message To Someone Who Is Being Held At The Laguna Beach Jail? posted by: Bail Expert
 

My sister was arrested a couple hours ago and she’s being held a the Laguna Beach Jail.  She’s been trying to contact us but for some reason the calls aren’t going through.  Is there a way to get her a message? We want her to know that we’re in the process of posting her bail bonds.

Unfortunately, the answer to your question is no.  You can’t dial into the jail and speak with the defendant and the jailers will not pass on a message.  It doesn’t matter if the caller is a family member, a Laguna beach bail bondsman or an attorney.

The good news is that posting bail bonds in Laguna Beach is a fast and easy process. In most cases, the defendant can expect to be released from jail within 30 minutes of their bail bonds being posted.  If the bondsman you are working with is able to help you using online bail bonds or e-sign bail bonds, this will also help speed up the process.

How Much Do Laguna Beach Bail Bonds Cost?

February 22, 2016 Comments Off on How Much Do Laguna Beach Bail Bonds Cost? posted by: Bail Expert
 

This is a very common question.

When someone is arrested and booked at the Laguna Beach Jail their bail bonds amount will be set based on the nature and severity of the crime they have been accused of.

A very minor offense, such as a basic first-time DUI, will have a much lower bail amount than a more serious crime, such as armed robbery.

When you work with a Laguna Beach bail bonds company, the fee to hire a bondsman will be 10%. If the defendant’s bail has been set at $15,000 this means you can expect to pay $1,500 to hire a bondsman in Laguna Beach.

You’ll also want to keep in mind that the fee you pay to an Orange County bail bonds (or Orange County jail bonds) company is considered to be earned in full at the time the defendant is released from custody.  It is not something that will be refunded in part or in full, no matter what happens with their case.

How low cost bail bonds in Laguna Beach could hurt you

October 23, 2015 Comments Off on How low cost bail bonds in Laguna Beach could hurt you posted by: Bail Expert
 

If you’ve learned that someone you care for has been arrested and booked at the Laguna Beach Jail it’s natural to want to get the best deal possible on bail bonds.

In California the cost to purchase bail bonds is set according to state law and that rate is 10%; there are, however, some unscrupulous companies that may offer deep discounts on premium to get your business. If you stumble across this type of bondsman you’ll want to ask yourself if you are OK doing business with someone who is so willing to break the law. Can you be sure they won’t try to shake you down for more money after the defendant is released?

Reputable Laguna Beach bail bonds agents have heard countless horror stories about unscrupulous companies that will offer a cheap rate up front but once the defendant is out of jail, they’ll return to the client demanding they pay more money or risk having the defendant thrown back in jail.

The bottom line is this: saving a few bucks on the front end of a jail bond transaction could seem like a good idea at the time but it will likely cost you far more in the long run.
