Being a Bail Bondsman at times can be the most exciting career I could have ever chosen. When people call for the most part they need me immediately. Unlike most occupations people have, when I get a call I am usually needed immediately. I like the feeling of being needed right then and there it makes me feel like the situation is important. I also let my clients know how important they are by responding to them immediately. My work takes me to the same place most of the time, meaning I usually go to the jail and post a bond. The individual gets out of jail, and I take them home. Wait, but that’s just the beginning. As soon as the person gets in the car that’s where the other story begins.The first question asked of me is usually “what do you think the judge will do”. I have the same answer for everyone. I tell them it depends on how involved they were in the crime. It’s based on what can be proven and what can’t be proven. I also ask whether or not the confessed in an interview. That’s when some people look at me and say, “what if I did. Then I say anything you say can or will be used against you. It’s sad because 99% of people have no clue of their rights when it comes to the law. They think they have to talk to an officer just because the individual is an officer. What we never remember is that we as a people still have the right to remain silent. I’m not an attorney so I can’t legally interpret law however I urge my clients to look up their charges on their own. That way they themselves can know the punishment if convicted. Obviously what they are facing is a major concern.While on the drive home the client usually opens up to me about how stupid they were to be involved in such an incident, especially if they were involved in a domestic violence. I get really sad when I hear those cases because it usually a break up. The family structure is falling apart. Domestic Violence in the state of California 273.5 (A) pc In Los Angeles that charge is an automatic $50,000 bail. Lots of people go to jail because of this charge. Some people secretly call it the OJ law. Meaning if the police come out usually someone is going to jail. Some people will argue but the fact of the matter is I’ve been doing this for the last seven years and you don’t know how many times the other spouse is at the jail before me asking the police why did they take their wife or husband to jail. It puts the police in a bad situation because someone actually called them. They have no idea what’s going on, or the mind frame of the aggressor. So they have to go in and judge in a matter of seconds a situation involving man and wife. However what’s not said is that I know for a fact officers are trained to take someone. I’ve seen it to many times where there was only an exchange of words. I’m not blaming the police and obviously people abuse power even in my profession. The point is we as Bail Bondsman get to see these things first hand. The personal time with the defendant for the most part is where the truth comes out.If you or anyone you know ever needs my services go to http://www.bailoutnow.net or call 1-800-608-5937
