Juvenile vs. Adult Proceedings

Porterville Bail Bonds

There are different proceedings, rights, and consequences for someone 17 or younger who gets arrested versus someone 18 or older who is arrested. In most states, anyone 17 or younger is called a juvenile, and when they turn 18, they are called an adult. The differences are due to the fact that juveniles have less understanding of the law and are still considered minors.

  • Juvenile hearings are heard by judges only, whereas an adult has a trial by a jury.
  • Juveniles do not have the right to bail; they are released to the custody of their parents or legal guardians. Adults may be granted or denied bail.
  • Juveniles do not have a public trial.
  • On his or her 18th birthday, juvenile records are automatically sealed. So when they become an adult, their criminal record appears clean. However, the juvenile records still exist, but people who look into background history, like landlords and employers, cannot see these records.

Understanding these basic differences can help a great deal if you are suddenly in the middle of a situation yourself. If you, or your loved one,are 18 or over and has been granted bail, we strongly suggest you post bail with a bail bond fromPorterville Bail Bonds. Bail bonds are more affordable and, thus, more ideal to use than cash bail.

What Determines Own Recognizance Release

Porterville Bail Bonds

Not all who are arrested are given the opportunity to be released on own recognizance, which is when a defendant signs formal papers promising to show up for court, then is released from jail. Most defendants are granted bail, meaning they have to pay money to the court in order to be released from jail. Some are denied bail altogether. What factors determine own recognizance and bail?

Who determines: The judge.

What factors contribute: A defendant’s prior criminal record, the current crime he or she is accused of, the ties and relationships the defendant has to others in the community, and their financial ability to pay for bail.

As you can probably guess, if a defendant has virtually no prior criminal history, has strong ties to the community, and the crime he or she is accused of is not very serious, then this defendant has a much better chance at being granted own recognizance release. It is not guaranteed, but the chances are certainly better.

For those who are granted bail, there are two options: cash bail, or a bail bond where a third party bail bond company steps in to assist. Before making a rash decision and going the cash bail route, please contact Porterville Bail Bonds.We will help you understand more about the bail bond industry and how our company can benefit you.We can help you save money and get you, or your loved one, bailed out of jail faster.

What to Do, and What Not to Do, When Cops Are Around

Porterville Bail Bonds

When we are calm, we always know what to say and do when we imagine a hypothetical situation. However, when that situation is actually happening and we are caught in the middle of it, it is so easy to forget those steps. We panic and make rash decisions. Sometimes we lose our cool, but we want to avoid that at all costs.

In the instance of being stopped by the police, here is what you should and should not do, whether you are guilty of a crime or not.

If you are pulled over while driving:

  • Keep your hands on your steering wheel where the officers can see them.
  • Do not reach for anything, including your license and registration, until the officer asks you to. Even if you are only reaching for your license, if you do so while the officer is still in his patrol car behind you, he can see into your car and may think you are trying to get a weapon or hide something.
  • In any situation where you are stopped by the police:

  • Be polite and respectful.
  • Do not grow angry or argumentative.
  • Do not try to run.
  • Keep your hands in sight.
  • Get the officer’s name and badge number. Patrol vehicle number can help too.
  • Get statements and/ or contact info from any witnesses.

Whether you are arrested or not, getting identification information of the cop and any witnesses can help back you up, better safe than sorry. You donot want to give the officers any reason to suspect anything of you.

If you end up arrested, you can post bail with a bail bond from Porterville Bail Bonds.
