Understanding Proper Court Etiquette

Proper etiquette is essential for making a good impression on other people, and this is especially true in the courtroom, especially for the defendant. The defendant is already in the courtroom with a disadvantage; this is the person who is being accused of a crime and is fighting against the charges so the jury finds him or her not guilty. While the jury and the judge deliberate and come to a decision based on the arguments brought forth from the defense and prosecution, the defendant’s appearance and overall courtroom etiquette leave an impression. Here are some helpful tips on proper courtroom etiquette, which are especially helpful for the defendant:

Anyone can tell you that getting arrested is not the worst thing that can happen and that in time, this will be all in the past. However, not everyone can provide concrete evidence of this. It helps to know someone who has been through this and can tell you firsthand that things will be alright. If you do not know someone personally, it is helpful to read about true stories.

If you, or a loved one, are ever arrested, remember these people who have been there, done that and moved on to successful, happy lives:

Daniel Manville – Served over 3 years in prison for manslaughter. While in prison, he studied law. After his release, he attended law school and passed the bar exam.

Eugene Brown – Served time for attempted robbery...

New Driving Laws in California – 2017 Edition

clovis-bailbonds1

There are a couple of new driving laws you are going to want to know about if you are a Californian. They involve cell phone use and are very closely related to the existing laws.

The old laws had a loophole where drivers would hold their cell phone in their hand while driving because they were using their GPS. The old law never stated the phone had to be mounted to the vehicle. The new laws that are now in effect require the phone to be mounted in certain locations, the lower right corner, or the lower left corner, of the windshield or onto the center console. A cell phone may not be attached to the middle of the windshield because it is obstructing clear view. In addition, drivers may use one finger to conduct a single swipe or tap on the screen.
