Believe yourself when you say you are stable to move on from the incident and not allow yourself to fall into any sort of bad situation again.

What Is A False Arrest And False Imprisonment?


A false arrest is when Person A acts beyond their authority and wrongfully takes Person B into custody. This restricts Person B’s freedoms against his or her consent. A false imprisonment is similar to kidnapping, but without the more serious intentions like harm and ransom. A false arrest is a crime and the victim is allowed to sue for damages.

An example of a false arrest made by the police: the victim verbally insulted an officer, who then arrested him or her. The verbal insult set the officer off (verbally insulting the officer was not a crime and the victim truly did not commit any other crime) and he or she got furious, put them in cuffs, and took them to the station.

An example of false imprisonment by an individual: a security guard stops a shopper from exiting, saying she has ...

What You Can Do To Bring A Loved One Home From Jail

San Diego Bail Bond Store Service

If you know a friend or family member in jail who needs help bailing out, you need to act quickly to help them out. The faster you connect with a bail bond company on your friend or family member’s behalf, the sooner the paperwork will be processed (it can take a few hours), and the sooner your loved one will be out of jail.

You should be the one to call a bail agency. You have access to a phone and a computer to do accurate research for a reliable company. Not all bail agencies will have your needs at their interests, to be honest. You will also need to begin thinking about how and where from you can collect funds to pay the premium for the agency (10% of the full bail amount). Luckily, most bail bond companies like San Diego Bail Bond Store Services will allow you to pay off the prem...

Are There Any “Pros” To Bail Bond Store?

San Diego Bail Bond Store Service

Bail bonds automatically generate a negative connotation in someone’s mind – “a lot of money that needs to be paid to get someone, who committed a crime, out of jail.” Basically, someone committed a crime but will go free until their trial as long as they pay x amount of money. But there are some pros to bail and bail bonds that are equally important (if not more important) to know:

Posting bail helps with jail overcrowding. Unfortunately, jails are overcrowded with the number of people serving short sentences or waiting trial (who didn’t or cannot bail out).

Posting bail ensures your safety (or your loved one’s safety, whoever the bail bond is for). You will be safe at home, in a familiar and comfortable surrounding, rather than in jail with other potentially dangerous peopl...

You’ll Never Guess What Led To This Man’s Conviction

San Diego Bail Bond Store Service

Earlier this Summer, a young man was convicted of a crime (involving firearms), but you’ll never guess what led the officers and prosecution to this. The man had photos on his Instagram account that dated back to 2013 that showed him with the guns in question. The police were able to use this as probable cause to search the man’s house. This led to his conviction.

In fact, the police department acknowledged that they have a special unit they dub as the “social media officers.” These guys are the pros at catching evidence and criminals online.

Now what do we do? Call San Diego Bial Bonds Services 619-232-9807.

This goes to show that what you post on social media is really “out there” for other people to see, even if your account is private...

The Best Thing You Might Ever Do Is Turn Your Friend In To The Police

San Diego Bail Bond Store Service

The best thing you might ever do for your best friend is to turn them in to the police. As drastic as it might sound, it could be the reason he or she really takes a look at how they are living their life and truly want to improve it. Getting arrested could be their wake up call. There is no definitive definition of the emotional, mental, and physical process one goes through in jail but just know that it is groundbreaking for that person.

Getting arrested for the first time does not guarantee that person will go to trial, found guilty, and end up serving a sentence in prison. Getting arrested for the first time means getting documented for the crime and then getting out on bail. They can go home and await their court date, when they will learn what exactly is next for them.

Turning your...

About The 8th Amendment And Bail

San Diego Bail Bond Store Service

The 8th Amendment protects the people from excessive bail, yet bail still does seem excessive to pretty much everyone. $10,000, $25,000, $1 million to be released? Yes, this is pricey, but let’s look at this objectively.

The judge looks at the following factors when deciding a bail amount:

  • The likelihood the defendant will flee
  • The seriousness of the committed crime
  • The defendant’s ties to the community, such as family and employment
  • The weight of evidence against the defendant
  • The defendant’s ability to pay the bail amount

The multi-thousand price for bail is expensive, but it must still be set high so that the defendant does indeed show up in court as he or she is ordered to; this bail is refundable if they oblige to all conditions of their release.

So if you were arrested and ...
