Why Use A Dallas Bail Bonds Agent For Jail Release

Using a Dallas Bail Bond Agent For Jail Release

If your loved one has been arrested and you’ve decided to hire a Dallas bail bonds company to get them out of jail, you’ve made the right decision. Here’s why: a Dallas County Bail Bonds agent can get your friend or loved one out of jail fast. Another reason using a Dallas Bail Bond agent makes sense is you won’t have to come up with the full cash price of the bail bond in order to get them out. As long as they make all their court dates and complete their check-ins, you most likely won’t have any additional costs. Additionally, if you use a bail bonds agent instead of an attorney, there’s no worry about the attorney going off your loved one’s bond if a problem arises with the attorney-client relationship.

Just make sure the bondsman is experienced.

Who The Heck Is Miranda?

Miranda Rights

Ernesto Arturo Miranda is the subject of the Miranda Warning, or Miranda Rights law. Ernesto Miranda was convicted of multiple crimes without being told he had a right to council or the right to remain silent. His conviction was overturned by the Supreme Court. He was eventually retried and convicted, but the net outcome was that the Miranda Warning is read to all individuals who are being arrested, detained or interrogated in the U.S.

You’ve all heard it – the Miranda Warning is read on almost every cop show on television or in the movies:

1. You have the right to remain silent
2. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
3. You have the right to talk to a lawyer and have him present with you while you are being questioned.
4. If you can not afford to hire a lawyer, one will be appointed to represent you before any questioning if you wish.
5. You can decide at any time to exercise these rights and not answer any questions or make any statements.
WAIVER
Do you understand each of these rights as I have explained to you? Having these rights in mind, do you wish to talk to us now?

Most of us can recite the majority of these rights off the tops of our heads, but few of us know why and how the law originated.

Does Posting Dallas Bail Bonds Hurt Your Credit?

Dallas Bail Bonds and Credit

The short answer is “No”. Posting a Dallas bail bond, or any bail bonds for that matter, should have no effect on your credit whatsoever. Whether you’re posting bail bonds with the County or with a Dallas Bail Bondsman, your credit should not be a factor.

If you post a cash bond with the City or County, as long as the defendant makes all necessary court appearances the bond amount should be returned to you, minus any court related fees. These fees are generally minimal.

If you go though a Dallas Bail Bonds Agent, then the bond agent will post the bond on behalf of the defendant, and your premium will just be a portion of the total bond amount. Once the bond is posted by the bail bonds agent, then the premium is said to have been earned.

Just as posting a bond with the City or County does not affect your credit, working with a bail bonds agent to get a bond posted does not affect your credit either.

If, on the other hand, you’ve taken out a loan or been placed on a payment plan and you do not honor the payment agreement, there is a possibility that your credit can be affected. But of course, as the co-signer, you have complete control over this situation by simply staying in compliance with the terms of your agreement.

If you find that circumstances prevent you from making scheduled payments, then get in contact with your bond agent. Most agents will be happy to work with you and may possibly make adjustments to your payment plan to make it easier for you […]

Dallas County Judge Charged With Assault

Dallas County Judge Hit With Protective Order For Assault

District Judge Carlos Cortez was charged with assault last week after his girlfriend alleged she was dragged by her hair to the balcony of his apartment in Uptown, was choked and was held against the balcony railing by her neck. Police were notified of a disturbance at his address in the 3000 block of McKinney Avenue. When the police arrived, the woman said both her and Cortez had been drinking earlier and got into a fight.

Cortez was arrested and charged with assault, family violence and impeding breathing/circulation, and was placed under a protective order where he is not to come within 500 feet of the woman and is to have no communications with her or her family members. Cortez was released on a $15,000 bond.

Judge Cortez filed a motion where he denied the allegations and stated that he was trying to prevent his girlfriend from jumping off the balcony. In Cortez’s motion he implies the woman had been mixing prescription drugs and alcohol and was attempting to jump from his balcony.

Visiting Judge Richard Mays ruled that the hearing would continue and the protective order will remain in place, but did not set a date.

Philippines Disaster Relief – Please Help

Philippines Disaster Relief

As most of you already know, the Philippines was hit by a devastating typhoon (Haiyan) and they are struggling to survive. This post is a flat-out plea for help with their disaster relief efforts.

If you have the ability, PLEASE reach out to the American Red Cross and make a donation to the Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts! ANY amount will help, and they need all the assistance they can get.

I actually tried to imagine myself in that situation and I couldn’t! I couldn’t even begin to wrap my mind around seeing and living that type of devastation – or having loved ones be placed in mass graves – its beyond comprehension for me!

If you can help, please do.

Reasons A Judge May Deny Bail

Most individuals who are arrested are eligible for Dallas County Bail Bonds. But there are some instances where a Judge may deny a defendant the opportunity to be released on Dallas Bail Bonds. The main purpose of a bail bond is to ensure the defendant will appear in court to answer changes, and will continue to appear in court at the appointed times if the case requires more than one court setting.

If the Judge determines or feels the defendant will not return for court appearances, that Judge can deny bail entirely. If the defendant has a past history of not appearing for court on previous cases, or if the defendant has made comments that they will not go to court, the Judge can and most often times will deny bail.

There are other reasons for denying bail too. If the defendant is facing a charge that has a very severe penalty, and that defendant has the means to flee the country, the Judge may deem the defendant a flight risk and deny bail.
