You Cannot Catch Pokémon In Jail, So Why Bother Getting Arrested?

Even Pokémon trainers get caught in unwanted situations when playing Pokémon Go on their mobile devices.

What do we mean?

  • Two San Diego men plunged off a cliff while playing the game.
  • A woman and her daughter were hit by a car while playing the game.
  • Drivers have been ticketed for playing the game, or for temporarily pulling over and getting out to catch a Pokémon.
  • A young girl came across a dead body while playing the game.
  • Two boys came across loaded guns while they were playing.
  • A man fell into a lake while he played the game.
  • People have called 9-1-1 because they wanted access into a firehouse because there were Pokémon inside.
  • Private residents have been bothered by numerous individuals knocking at their door, asking if they can enter their backyard because there is a Pokémon in the yard.
  • Game players have also trespassed onto private property to catch a Pokémon.
  • Unaware players have been robbed by others who had used the game to trick those unassuming victims.

The game clearly has a few flaws that make even the smartest adults forget about real life situations. Mostly, they are not really flaws of the game itself. The only thing the game has done wrong is be a popular game that brings back childhood memories for most players.

Lynwood Bail Bonds Store would like to caution all game players to simply be aware of their surroundings while playing the game. We do not want to have to bail you out of jail because you were playing the game while driving and accidentally hit somebody, or because you trespassed onto private property, but we will. Even if there are Pokémon inside jail, it is not like you can catch them since your phone will be confiscated and returned only when we have bailed you out.

Nonetheless, Lynwood Bail Bonds Store will be right there with your bail bond ready. So if you need it for yourself or a loved one, please contact us at 323-357-0575.

Drink and Jail = Bail

Summer is in full swing and we can tell you all are having the times of your lives. For some, however, they may be having a little too much fun. We seem to be bailing numerous individuals out of jail for having too much alcohol, then getting arrested because their actions while inebriated were not the best.

Lynwood Bail Bonds Store cautions against over-drinking, and especially drinking and driving. Drinking alcohol impairs judgement, and the more that is consumed, the worse your judgment gets. Some people wind up in fights, others go home with the wrong person, and many unfortunately drive while intoxicated.

Sipping on beers, wines, spirits, and cocktails is perfectly fine, provided those who are drinking, are aware of their intake and their limits. The last things anyone wants is for someone to get severely injured or for someone to be arrested. Some possible solutions to prevent this are cutting back on the drinks, designating a sober driver, taking Uber or Lyft, and you and your friends watching out for each other.

We are all too familiar with bailing these types of people out of jail, but honestly we are more than happy to do so because we see that they now understand the responsibilities and consequences they face. We will not hesitate to help you or your loved ones now, or in the future.

For bail bond questions and consultations, please contact us online or at 323-357-0575.

What to Expect When You Did Not Expect Your Loved One to Be Arrested

When your loved one is arrested and taken away, you are initially offered short and few details about what to expect. All you know is that he or she is being taken away and you are now stressed, frantic, and worried. You have no clue as to what comes next. Here is what to expect when you did not expect your loved one to be arrested.

Well, your loved one will be booked: getting fingerprinted, taking a mugshot, and personal items will be taken away. He or she will be arraigned, meaning he or she will be formally charged for the crime and told how much the bail will be.

At this point, you will want to take the bail amount information, along with the location of where he or she is being held, and future contact info, and get in touch with Lynwood Bail Bonds Store. We are California’s leading bail bond company and we will work with you to create a customized payment plan for an affordable bail bond. How affordable? It will depend on the bail amount, but it will be 90% less than if you were paying cash bail.

After we can get that paperwork done, we will transfer it to the jail, they will process it, and release your loved one to you shortly. From there, you just need to make sure your loved one continues to show up for his or her court appointments.

Smoking Trends Rise and So Does the Legal Age Limit

In recent years, vaping has become a very popular ‘alternative’ to smoking cigarettes. Compared to smoking cigarettes, vaping is ‘healthier’ both for the individual and their environment. However, both vaping and smoking cigarettes continue to carry a social stigma with them, a “coolness” factor. While vaping is growing more popular, it is not replacing cigarettes altogether.

Since the introduction of e-cigarettes in 2004, the percentage of high school seniors who smoked increased from 9% to 13%. It is still a bad habit, and e-cigarettes are not completely risk-free either. Plus, the University of Southern California found in a recent survey that teens who vaped were 6 times more likely to smoke cigarettes than those who do not vape.

In another attempt to curb teen smoking, California recently changed the legal age limit to smoke. Previously, you had to be 18 to purchase and/ or smoke. Now, you must be 21. Anyone caught illegally purchasing, selling, and/ or smoking is subject to any combination of fines and jail time. The fine amount and/ or the length of the jail sentence will depend on the scope of the situation. In all likelihood, those who are arrested for these crimes will be offered bail, and Lynwood Bail Bonds Store can help with the bail bond process.

Millennials: Stop Sharing Your Netflix Passwords Now

This note goes out to all the millennials who use Netflix, Hulu, HBO GO, or any other similar, subscription-based, streaming platform. Sharing passwords to an account is now officially a felony.

Perhaps before this, you already thought that sharing your password was the wrong thing to do, since you are allowing others to avoid paying for the subscription service. However, that did not stop you since the company had no way of knowing, plus everyone did it.

A recent court ruling is changing that, and now password sharing for these sites is a federal crime. The ruling came from a case that actually did not involve these streaming services. A man, who had left his job, continued to use his former employee’s credentials to access private information, with intent to defraud. The ruling surrounding password sharing in this case falls under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, as does Netflix, Hulu, and HBO GO, which is how it is connected.

Now, it is unlikely the streaming services are going to go after their millions of users who have accounts and share their passwords, but you can never be too careful.

If you, or someone you know, is arrested for a crime like password sharing, Lynwood Bail Bonds Store can help with an affordable bail bond. We can be reached 24/7 both online, and on the phone at 323-357-0575.

Keep Pokémon Go Fun! Avoid Jail and the Potential Need for Bail

Answering phone calls, texting, checking traffic and finding alternate routes, replying to emails, there are plenty of distractions on mobile phones. Now, there is a new app that is taking over our lives: Pokémon Go. This falls under the games category, but this game is unlike any other. This one is addicting and far surpassed the majority of mobile games in popularity.

It is great that the game is doing so well since it is getting people out of their homes to walk around. It is a means for people to socialize with each other, even with strangers. Some companies are even capitalizing on the game by using it themselves for business tactics. Dog shelters are asking for game-players to walk the dogs, children hospitals are playing so the young patients can walk around the hospital and have some fun, coffee shops are offering discounts. It is quite the distraction.

However, it also can be bad. It is another distraction for many drivers on the road. First off, it is illegal to even be on a mobile device while driving; you must use a hands-free device. Unfortunately, that does not stop most Californians, and now people are also getting ticketed for playing the game while driving. The dangers are just as great for walking pedestrians too, they are getting hit by cars because they are not paying attention to their surroundings.

All we want to say is to not play Pokémon Go while driving, or be on your phone at all while driving. If you are playing the game outside, be aware of your surroundings. The last thing anyone wants is for someone to get hurt and another to be arrested for negligence. Pokémon Go is a game for fun, let us keep it that way.

If you, or someone you know, has been arrested for breaking laws like playing while driving, or any other crime, whether it is Pokémon-related or not, Lynwood Bail Bonds Store will definitely help bail them or you out of any California jail.

Responsibilities of a Bail Bond Co-Signer

Bail bond co-signers play a vital role in the bail bond process. Some bail bonds can be dependent on having one or more co-signers. If the defendant fails to get the required number of co-signers for his or her bail bond, then they ultimately cannot get a bail bond and they cannot bail out of jail.

Co-signers are responsible for seeing that the defendant shows up for court appointments. Whether that is just reminding them with a phone call ahead of time, or picking them up and driving them to court, it is up to the co-signer to see they make it to court. Even if it literally means they chase after them down the street to bring them to court, then so be it. If the defendant misses a court appointment, there are repercussions for the defendant themselves, but also some for the co-signer.

However, if the co-signer comes to realize they can no longer trust the defendant to willingly appear in court, or if the co-signer believes it will come to the point of needing to chase them down, then the co-signer is free to withdraw their name as a co-signer. There is no consequence to the co-signer for doing this.

If you are considering being a bail bond co-signer, and/ or, if you are now in need of a bail bond, Lynwood Bail Bonds Store of California can help.

Reach us online or by phone at 323-357-0575 and we will help get things sorted for you right away.
