Woke? Weak!

March 16th, 2022 written by Scott Miner

Here we go again. Sigh. Another “crime fighter” who’s actually soft on crime. Thankfully there’s a movement to recall said “fighter”- George Gascon. If anyone has been paying attention (and we hope you have been) we already talked about this at length when we discussed the various bills proposing the elimination of bail and bail bonds (see our blog at bailall.com). Along comes Mister Gascon who promptly ignores the will of the voters who overwhelmingly decided to keep cash bail as a deterrent to recidivist crime rather than trust a computer algorithm that can determine whether a murderer or a […]

5 Tips For Selecting a Santa Ana Bail Bonds Provider

July 16th, 2021 written by Bob Miller

You never want to find yourself in a position where you need a Santa Ana bail bonds company to assist you, but it’s sometimes unavoidable. You might have a family member who ends up in jail, rightfully or wrongfully, and in these situations, getting them out as quickly as possible should be a top priority. However, the experience can be frustrating, especially since every bail bond company in Santa Ana, California, has different requirements and protocols you’ll have to follow. It’s a good idea to take a minute or two to research your bond provider before trusting them because a […]

California Proposition 25 Bail Bonds

October 28th, 2020 written by Bob Miller

Steve Ballmer, a white billionaire with no grasp on reality of the everyday voter, and other proponents of Prop 25 claim that the cash bail system is inherently classist, racist and unfair. People with generational wealth can pay their way out of jail while awaiting trial. Poorer people in the exact same legal circumstances, with the same statistical likelihood to appear — or not appear — for trial cannot afford to pay their way out. This is NOT true! Bail does need to be revised, but Prop 25 does NOT do what it was intended to do, because it was so poorly written by our […]

Vote No on Prop 25

Lock Her Up! Cane Her Bottom In A Public Square! Captain’s Log: Star date August 31,2020 Fox News obtained security camera footage of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi getting a wash and blow-out (hey, it’s a term for hair styling) in a previously shuttered by law hair salon. (Am I the only one questioning how or why Fox News was able to procure said video footage?). Bad girl Nancy! All hair salons in San Francisco have been closed since March of this year by executive order of California’s governor, Gavin Newsome. The owner of the salon has contacted Fox News […]

Where You’ll Go After Being Arrested in Orange County, California

October 12th, 2020 written by Bob Miller

If you’re arrested in Orange County, California, a trip to a local jail is a sure thing. Where you end up and how long you stay there depends on various factors, including the location of your arrest and how quickly you can see a judge. The gist is that the judge will determine whether you’re eligible for bail or a flight risk, and will then set an amount that you must pay for release. If you don’t have the money, a bail bond is worth considering, as it ensures that you’re out of jail in a matter of hours, rather […]

Pay to Stay Jails

January 24th, 2019 written by Scott Miner

It’s been awhile since my last blog post, but due to repeated calls from my adoring public ( well okay, Mom and Uncle Joe) I’ve written another thrilling, can’t put it down post! This time out we’ll be discussing Pay To Stay jails in Orange County. At this time, there are Pay To Stay facilities in Santa Ana, Anaheim, Huntington Beach, Fullerton, and Seal Beach. So, you committed a crime, bailed out with Orange County Bail Bonds, went to court, and (oh no!) were sentenced. The purpose of a Pay To Stay jail is to allow someone convicted of a […]

Referendum on SB10 to Save Our Criminal Justice System

October 7th, 2018 written by Bob Miller

Sigh. Here we go again. Legislators have decided to end bail and bonds as we know them in a misguided effort to “end racial and economic discrimination”. We’ve mentioned Bail Fail ( how the proposed elimination of cash bail in other states like New Jersey) in other blog posts, Facebook mentions, and Twitter feed. Do we really have to “wait and see” what happens before the same disastrous results occur in California? Look at a recent Opinion from the Orange County Register written by Andrew Do and Tony Rackauckas. “Sacramento continues risky experiments with public safety. During this year’s legislative […]

An eloquent editorial against Bail Reform

May 1st, 2018 written by Scott Miner

From a recent article in the Orange County Register: Tony Rackauckas, District Attorney for Orange County eloquently explains why Bail Reform is a bad idea. I’ve written about the negative aspects (not so eloquently) of bail reform, the posts are available here under blog posts. “There have been two major cases in the news recently, both of which have garnered national media attention. In Orange County, Samuel Woodward was granted $5 million bail after he was charged with murdering 19-year-old Ivy League student Blaze Bernstein. In Riverside County, the Louise and David Turpin are being held in lieu of $12 […]

Update on New Jersey Bail Fail

February 23rd, 2018 written by Scott Miner

We know that our admiring public has been waiting anxiously for an updated blog post on SB10, the California Senate Bill trying to eliminate bail and bail bondsmen in Orange County and throughout the Golden State. Last we heard, Governor Jerry Brown has decided that it will be a priority for 2018 (but if his term ends this year, it would seem that it’ll be someone else’s problem). Proponents of the bill, and critics of the bail system as it currently stands complain that bail is biased against the poor, that the rich can buy their way to freedom in […]

Die Bill, Die!

September 10th, 2017 written by Scott Miner

Die Bill, Die! No silly, I’m not proposing to murder someone named William. I’m referring to California Senate Bill 10, affectionately known as SB10, which is attempting to eliminate bail and bondsman as an industry throughout the state. Last we checked it was sent to Appropriations for further study. As of September 6, 2017, several amendments to the original bill were added and it was sent back to Appropriations. Sheesh, can’t they just let this thing die? We’ve talked about this in past blog posts here. You only have to look at New Jersey’s current state of affairs regarding repeat […]
