Falling Asleep Behind the Wheel in California

Falling Asleep Behind the Wheel in California

We’ve all done it. Gotten behind the wheel and driven when we were tired. Most of the time rolling down the window, cranking up the radio, and indulging in a massive amount of caffeine is enough to get us safely where we need to be. The problem is that some people don’t make it to their destination. Some people fall asleep while they’re behind the wheel and find themselves in serious legal trouble.

The Dangers of Falling Asleep While Driving

People constantly warn us about driving while intoxicated. We know it’s dangerous and know that it’s a serious traffic offense. People rarely discuss the fact that driving while fatigued is equally dangerous. In most cases driving is monotonous. It’s so easy to let your eyes close for a second...

Do You Need a Warrant Check?

Do You Need a Warrant Check?

No one ever wants to get arrested, but often times, the arrest comes without warning. It can be difficult for a person to know if a warrant has been issued for an arrest. This is due to the fact that police don’t inform people of their warrant, since if they could reach the person in question, they would just arrest him or her. This makes learning about any warrants difficult.

Detention and Arrest Are Different

Detention in school was simply staying late one day, and sitting in room with a handful of other students, and a teacher, either doing homework or nothing at all. Detention outside of school, when you are an adult, is not quite the same. This is when you are briefly stopped by the police and/ or taken to their precinct. They have reasonable suspicion to stop and ask you a few questions, but if you are not being arrested, then you may leave.

If the officer’s reasonable suspicion grows to probable cause, then he or she may arrest you, and then you may not leave until you are booked, arraigned and allowed bail, and then post bail. Only when bail is posted may you leave, but because you were arrested, you will have to deal with lawyers and trials too...

How Long Is The Bail Process?

It can seem like forever for the one in jail, but the bail process is relatively short, so to speak. We mean hours, which as we said – relatively short, considering the situation.

The defendant won’t be able to bail out of jail until they are booked and arraigned, which happens as soon as possible after their arrest. They learn of their bail amount at their arraignment hearing. After that, they can post bail as soon as they can get the cash for it. Or, they can use a bail bond as soon as they can 1) get in touch with a bail bond agent, and 2) figure out the payment plan.

Really, getting a bail bond isn’t going to be too difficult; in fact, it will be an easier process than paying for cash bail because it’s more affordable to pay for...
