Newport Beach Police Department Mounted Unit Gets Another Horse

October 16, 2017 Comments Off on Newport Beach Police Department Mounted Unit Gets Another Horse posted by: Bail Expert
 

Representatives from the Newport Beach Police Department have confirmed they’ve added a fourth horse to its mounted unit.

The search for the new steed has been ongoing, a spokesperson said, since a one of their horses, which had developed severe health problems, was put down earlier this year.

The newest steed-officer is 8-years-old and has been named Bullseye, after the toy horse in the “Toy Story” movies.

News reports confirm that Bullseye’s previous job was “ponying thoroughbred racehorses off the track.”

His handler has described the horse as having a calm demeanor, which made him an ideal candidate for the mounted unit. Bullseye will still need to undergo training but it’s believed he will fit in nicely with the Newport Beach Police Department.

Police Officer Shawn Dugan, who works for the mounted unit, said he’s excited to have a new partner.

Man Convicted in Yacht Theft Re-Arrested on Same Boat

October 4, 2017 Comments Off on Man Convicted in Yacht Theft Re-Arrested on Same Boat posted by: Bail Expert
 

A man who was sentenced in 2014 for stealing a $3 million yacht has been re-arrested, police say, but the real clincher in the new case is that the man was arrested for trespassing on the same boat he stole three years ago.

The suspect, who has been identified as 35-year-old Richard Rodriguez, has since pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor trespassing charge. He’s been sentenced to serve three weeks in jail with an additional three years informal probation.

Rodriguez’s first encounter with the boat came in 2014 when it was docked at Newport Harbor. He decided he wanted to take it for a joyride but he ran into some trouble with the docks; he then called the harbor police for help and eventually, they helped escort him, and the vessel, out to sea.

He was arrested the following day after the yacht was reported stolen.

As for the current arrest, that came after Newport Beach Police Department officials received word he was back on the same boat. Although he was initially charged on suspicion of grand theft of a boat, prosecutors said they didn’t have enough evidence to charge him with that crime, which is why they prosecuted him on the trespassing charge, instead.

How Much Do I Need to Put Down on Newport Beach Bail Bonds?

September 22, 2017 Comments Off on How Much Do I Need to Put Down on Newport Beach Bail Bonds? posted by: Bail Expert
 

My son was arrested by the Newport Beach Police Department and his bail has been set at $100,000. My wife and I read that the total cost for bail bonds will be 10%, so $10,000, but we were hoping to qualify for a payment plan.  How much will we need to put down as a down payment on Newport beach bail bonds? 

The amount of your down payment will be based on two things.  First, the bondsman will ask about the state of your credit.  Second, they may ask if you own or rent your home.  People who have good credit and/or who own their own home will generally qualify for a lower down payment than a signer who rents and has shay credit.  The best thing to do in your situation is to call a local bondsman and explain your situation.  For more information on how Newport Beach bail bonds payment plans, work call our office now at 888-224-5266 to speak with a California bondsman in your area.

How Newport Beach Bail Bonds Work

August 16, 2017 Comments Off on How Newport Beach Bail Bonds Work posted by: Bail Expert
 

When someone is arrested in Newport Beach, the most common way to get that person released from jail involves calling a Newport Beach bail bondsman.

When you contact a bail bondsman, they will ask you to provide some basic information about the defendant including when they were arrested, what their charges are and how much their bail is. If you don’t have all of this information on hand that’s OK; the bondsman will be able to look that information up very quickly.

The cost to purchase bail bonds in Orange County will be 10% of the defendant’s total bail amount. Most people choose to pay the bondsman using a credit or debit card. If you’re unable to pay the fee up front in full, simply ask the bondman about how bail bonds payment plans work.

Once the bail bond application is complete and payment arrangements have been made, the bondsman will be sent to the Newport Beach Jail to post the defendant’s bail bonds.  In most cases, your loved one will be released from jail within an hour.

Three Facts about Newport Beach Bail Bonds

August 7, 2017 Comments Off on Three Facts about Newport Beach Bail Bonds posted by: Bail Expert
 

If you’ve learned that someone you care for has been arrested by the Newport Beach Police Department, you’ll want to keep the following three things in mind.

  1. The fee you pay to purchase bail bonds is non-refundable. Although many people believe their bail bonds fees will be refunded as long as the defendant goes to court, this is simply not true. The only way you’ll get your full bail bond fee back is if you put the defendant’s full bail amount up with the jail (as opposed to paying 10% to a bondsman). If you put full cash bail up with the jail, the monies will be returned to whoever put it up, less administrative fees, once the case is over.
  2. Not all bail bonds companies work the same. Some offer flexible bail bonds payment plans with zero percent financing, others charge credit check fees, fees for paying by phone using a credit card and others require you pay up front in full, in cash.  You’ll want to find a bondsman that can work with you in a way you’re most comfortable.
  3. Not all bail bonds companies require you come into their office to handle paperwork. Some offer online bail bonds or bail bonds through e-docs.

What Portion of my Newport Beach Bail Bonds Fees Will Be Refunded?

July 26, 2017 Comments Off on What Portion of my Newport Beach Bail Bonds Fees Will Be Refunded? posted by: Bail Expert
 

My son was arrested in Newport Beach last night and we paid the bondsman $5,000 to get him out of jail. A friend told me that as long as my son goes to court and that once the case is over, we should get some of the bail money back. Is this true? What percentage of the bail bonds fees are generally returned?

This is a very common misconception. The fees you pay to purchase bail bonds in California are non-refundable, no matter what happens with your son’s case.  The bondsman’s fees are considered to be earned in full at the time a defendant is released from custody and they will not be refunded in part or in full regardless as to whether the case is dismissed, if charges aren’t filed or if the defendant is found not guilty. For more information on how Newport beach bail bonds work call our office now at 888-224-5266.  All calls are handled confidentially and consultations are always free.

What to Do If You’re Arrested in Newport Beach

July 3, 2017 Comments Off on What to Do If You’re Arrested in Newport Beach posted by: Bail Expert
 

If you find yourself in a position where you’re being taken into custody by a member of the Newport Beach Police Department, you’ll want to do your best to remain calm.

You won’t be able to talk your way out of the arrest (officers have heard every excuse in the book) and you shouldn’t be argumentative, difficult and you should never try to resist arrest.  People who try to flee or evade arrest are likely to face additional charges.

You’ll also want to remember that you have the right to remain silent. Do not discuss the details of your case with anyone unless an attorney is present.  When you get to the jail, you’ll be asked to provide basic information including your name, address, the type of work you do and whether you have any underlying medical issues. If the jailer or if investigators ask you about the case, tell them you won’t answer any questions without your lawyer.

Responsibilities When You Co-Sign for Newport Beach Bail Bonds

June 21, 2017 Comments Off on Responsibilities When You Co-Sign for Newport Beach Bail Bonds posted by: Bail Expert
 

If you’ve learned that someone you care for has been arrested and taken to the Newport Beach Jail, it’s natural to want to help get this person out of jail as fast as possible.

At the same time, you’ll want to remember that hiring a bondsman entails more than just paying a bail bonds fee.  When you sign the bail bonds paperwork, you’re promising the defendant will appear for all of their necessary court dates.  If they flee because they’re trying to evade prosecution, you will become responsible for paying additional fees should the bail bonds company need to hire a fugitive recovery agent (bounty hunter) in order to return them to court.

If the bondsman is unable to get the defendant back into the system within a year, you’ll be liable to pay the full original bail amount to the court as a penalty.

Ultimately, you’ll want to make sure you read any legally binding contract, including a bail bonds agreement form, before you sign.

For more information on the responsibilities you’ll take on when you sign for Newport Beach bail bonds call our office now at 888-224-5266.
