Bail Bonds at the Santa Rita Jail
Fremont Bail Bond blog on bad advice.
There are some pretty smart people out there who have gave or will be giving some bad advice. Most people don't know how to give advice and are not qualified to give it. The times when you think you are hearing someones advice, what may be happening is, they are trying to sell you something. They also could be trying to get you to do something for them, that may not be in your best interest.
- "This 'telephone' has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us." -- Western Union internal memo, 1876.
- "The Americans have need of the telephone, but we do not. We have plenty of messenger boys." -- Sir William Preece, chief engineer of the British Post Office, 1876.
- "Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?" -- H. M. Warner, Warner Brothers, 1927.
- "There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home." -- Ken Olson, president, chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Corp., 1977.
- Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, 2007. "There is no chance that the I-phone will gain any market share. No chance."
- Thomas Edison, 1889. The lightbulb inventor insisted his own direct current (DC) system was superior to competitor George Westinghouse’s AC power, and took every opportunity to discredit alternating current.
I recall sitting in a meeting circa 1990's when the CEO of the company (A fortune 500 company at the time) stated in front of the whole company, "It will be a cold day in hell before a consumer sees one of our products." We were working on cellar technology at the time, he killed the project and sold off what was left of it to another company. I remember turning to the person next to me and stating, "Get out the hammer and put another nail in the coffin, he's killing us." It was at this time that I started looking at what I wanted to do for work. I was done working for someone else. I was through working for the "man" doing the 9-5. I had to find something else. What was out there for me to make a living at?
When you hear something that you don't think is quite right, listen, that is your cue to start thinking on your own and develop your own plan. A time for change. Working your own plan, your find that work is so much more enjoyable finishing the week with energy instead of the drained, "thank God it's Friday" feeling at the end of the week.
When someone states, "you can't do that?" "You're not good enough or qualified etc - It will be up to you to believe them or not. Either way, you will be right. So I ask you, "Do you want to listen to the so called experts on your life or yourself?" After all, who knows you better than you do?
At 510 Bail Bond we believe in your Freedom.
Working for yourself is not for everyone. Some people like working for others and are well paid for it. There is nothing wrong with that, if that is your plan. I have people calling me from time to time asking, "Who does your marketing?" Or they may ask, "Can I speak with the person in charge of marketing for your company." Marketing - This would lead into another blog for another time - until then, stay true to your plan and if you find yourself in need of bail, well there is always.... 510 Bail Bond.

You think a quick run to the store, pick up some beer and your back to the party. But wait on the way back your friend is stopped by the local police and questioned about rolling through a stop sign.

Wait a minute here, you did not have a destructive device, how were you charged? Well when the police were searching your friends car they found destructive devices (fire works) in the trunk.

"This is BS" and other choice words are exchanged with the police.
PC 18730 F - this charge is also added. Since you have a lot of bombs (fire works) in the trunk the police charge all of you with transporting with intent to sell destructive devices.

New Bill AB 510BB
I was wondering how the public could be protected against unlawful arrest or just plain abuse of power by law enforcement. I'm a bail bondsmen owner of 510 Bail Bond in Fremont California and have noticed a marked increase of resisting arrest charges that the DA does not pursue. This has led me to believe that if a case is not worth pursuing by the DA it's most likely not a win-able case for them. Lack of evidence, not a strong case, not likely to prevail in a court of law therefore the DA does not want to pursue these charges of resisting arrest. Simply stated they are hard to win from a DA stand point and another cause of jail over crowding. However, law enforcement is using the PC148 charge as a last resort when they want to arrest someone but don't know what to charge them with. Get him for resisting is usually muttered when no other charges are apparent. Many PC148 charges that are dropped are the result of the citing officer losing his composure and wanting to flex his power and show the public who is in charge. This is done at a cost to the public. The arrested citizen is booked into jail and needs to post bail or wait to see a judge before being set free. The cost of bail and the time spent in jail by the citizen are not reimbursed. Basically the officer can arrest at will with no concern of repercussion by the public.
AB 510BB - This bill would reimburse bail cost for those who have been arrested but no charges filed or pursued. Hopefully this will be seen as a balance for the public against unnessary and costly arrest.

California has a pro arrest policy for Domestic Violence. If your spouse has been arrested on a domestic violence charge and is in need of bail - here are some things to consider. There maybe a temporary restraining order in place, ordering your spouse to keep a certain distance from you. This will not keep you from hiring a bail bondsmen from posting bail for your loved one. However, you should plan to have someone else pick them up and make other temporary living arrangements until the order expires. Check with the arresting Police department to verify if in fact there is a restraining order in place. Visit our main web site for more information regarding Domestic Violence.

The Excessive Bail Clause
of the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits excessive bail set in pre-trial detention.
The Clause was drafted in response to the perceived excursiveness of bail in England. Excessive bail was also prohibited by the English Bill of Rights. If a judge posts excessive bail, the defendant's lawyer may make a motion in court to lower the bail or appeal directly to a higher court.
I argue when a defendant is out on bail, then remanded in court and bail is then set higher, that is a violation of the excessive bail clause of the Eighth Amendment. Let's take a look at a typical court action of raising bail after a judge sets bail and the defendant bonds out.
- Defendant is arrested
- Bail is set at $10,000.00
- Defendant is bail out (By 510 Bail Bond of course) paying $1,000.00 for the bond
- Defendant appears in court as agreed
- The judge reviews the case and then reassess bail to be $40,000.00
- Defendant now is put back in jail awaiting bail - now at the higher amount.
In this case the defendant would have to pay $5,000.00 for bail. $1,000.00 for the first bond and then $4,000.00 for the second bond. If the defendant would of sat in jail until court, he would of only had to pay $4,000.00. On the other hand if the Judge would of set his bail correctly in the first place the defendant would of saved $1000.00. Why should the defendant be punished financially for exercising his right to bail at the $10,000.00 amount? Why are attorneys not fighting this?
What are your thoughts on this matter?
