What Exactly Are Search Warrants For?

Fresno Bail Bonds Store

When the police want to go through your property and belongings, they will need a search warrant, which is an official document executed by a judge that gives officers the right to go through your stuff. In order to get a search warrant, the officers must have probable cause to believe criminal activity has, is, or will be taking place.

A search warrant will list items and/ or locations that can be sifted through by the officers. The officers may not search locations that are not listed. For example, if the warrant specifies only the kitchen and living room of a home, the officer cannot search the bedrooms. The warrant also allows the officers to seize items during their search.

Search warrants are not needed if you give consent to the officer to search...

Infractions, Misdemeanors, and Felonies: Know the Differences

Fresno Bail Bonds Store

Infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies are the three classifications of law violations. The type of crime, and the resulting punishments, differentiate the three from each other.

Infractions are the petty offenses that are punishable by fines, seldom ever jail time. The most common infractions are driving and traffic violations, like speeding and parking in a red zone.

Misdemeanors are crimes such as trespassing and harassment, and can be punishable with fines and up to a year in jail.

Felonies are serious criminal offenses whose punishments include large fines, and prison sentences. Crimes with threat and harm are felonies, as well as fraud and others of that nature.

Lawyers are really only necessary in felony cases and many misdemeanor cases...

Before You Hit Publish

Social media has taken over life, and it is now just as important to be cautious of what you post on there for the sake of legal issues, as it is for the sake of ending up in your employer’s eyes. Everyone can watch you: friends, family, your employer, the police, the government, and even strangers.

You might post a photo of you at a really cool lookout spot. Your friends may know that in order to get that shot, you actually have to trespass on private property. They may like or even comment on your photo, and if your profile is set to public, strangers can see your content too. Eventually it can go viral, the media can pick it up, and the police can get involved, and slap you with punishments.

The situation we described might sound a little far-fetched, but trust us, it can happen...

Why Is Bail So Darn Expensive?

Fresno Bail Bonds Store

Bail is so darn expensive because it acts as an incentive for the defendant to comply with all of his or her release terms and conditions; including showing up to court as scheduled. If the defendant honors this agreement, he or she will receive his or her bail money back. If the bail is a large amount, then you can understand that the defendant will be way more inclined to honor the agreement than if the bail was only $50. The bail amount is not just a random number that the judge decides.

There are factors in each case that the judge must consider:

    • The defendant’s relationship with others within the community. If the defendant has close ties and relationships with others, they are less likely to flee. These friends and family members will most likely know the defendants whereabouts.
