Bail Bonds for Manhattan Beach
Manhattan Beach, California is one of three beach towns making up the South Bay area. Located in southwestern Los Angeles County, Manhattan Bean enjoys an exceptionally mild climate with year-round temperatures right at 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
Manhattan Beach to Hawaii
Originally a series of sand dunes, the area surrounding Manhattan Beach was leveled by the Kuhn Brothers Construction Company in the 1920s and 30s. Some of the extra sand from Manhattan Beach was sold and shipped to Waikiki to turn their rocky beach into a sandy one. Waikiki Beach is one of the most famous beaches in the world and is almost entirely man-made. A piece of Manhattan Beach will forever be a part of that new landscape.
Manhattan Beach Neighborhoods
Manhattan Beach remained largely unsettled until close to the turn of the century. In 1885, Daniel Freeman bought the land that would eventually make up Manhattan Beach from Scotland’s Sir Robert Burnett and settled his family there. Around 1902 a developer named Stewert Merrill was involved in the development of the area and named the town for his hometown of Manhattan in New York. The “Beach” part of the name was only appended at the request of the postmaster in 1927.
As the City of Manhattan Beach grew, the residents unofficially divided the town into distinct neighborhoods. The neighborhoods are referred to by descriptive terms such as The Strand, The Hill Section, The Tree Section, The Bird Section, The Poet’s Section, and The Gas Lamp Section. Other neighborhoods are referred to as Manhattan Village, Manhattan Heights, East Manhattan Beach, Liberty Village, and El Porto.
Oceanfront homes that grace the streets of The Strand have the dubious honor of including some of the most expensive real estate in the US. The Hill Section is also notorious for its high priced and new or newly remodeled homes constructed along steep hills with breathtaking ocean and city views.
Downtown Manhattan Beach
Downtown Manhattan Beach is home to more than 150 retail shops and trendy boutiques, as well as over 50 restaurants, cafes, and coffee shops. The downtown Farmer’s Market takes place every Tuesday from 11 AM to 4 PM, featuring more than 50 vendors offering organic and seasonal produce, vegan and gluten-free food options, live music, entertainment, children’s activities, and train rides.
Manhattan Beach is host to a number of festivals and events throughout the year, including the USA National Beach Volleyball Championships, the bicycle race Chevron Manhattan Beach Grand Prix, the International Surf Festival, and the Catalina Classic paddleboard race.
The Beach in Manhattan Beach
The two-mile stretch of sandy beach that lies along the Pacific Ocean is simply called “the beach” in Manhattan Beach. Popular with residents and visitors alike, the beach is often crowded during the summer, especially during beach events. The wide, sandy beach makes it perfect for sunbathing, swimming, and family outings. The waves invite surfers and paddleboarders and beach volleyball is hugely popular. One hundred volleyball nets can be stretched along the beach at any given time.
Lifeguards are employed by the County of Los Angeles and are spaced at intervals along the beach during daylight hours. Parking is free, as is admission to the beach. Dogs are not allowed on the beach, and alcohol consumption and tobacco use are prohibited, as well.
Law Enforcement in Manhattan Beach
Policing services in Manhattan Beach are provided by the Manhattan Beach Police Department, MBPD. The MBPD encourages volunteerism and partners with neighborhood watch programs all over the city to help maintain the quality of life in Manhattan Beach. More than 500 residents serve as Neighborhood Watch Captains all over Manhattan Beach.

To find a friend or loved one being held by law enforcement in Los Angeles County, you can do an inmate search HERE. You will need the individual's full, legal name, age, and gender. You can also find an inmate's booking number, for use in scheduling visits, sending money, or sending mail.

Arrested On Outstanding Warrant
Sometimes minor offenses (or no offense at all) can result in an arrest if you have an outstanding warrant against you. If you happen to be crossing the border from Mexico to California, the border patrol will run your drivers license before allowing you to enter the country. Occasionally this will result in the border officers discovering an outstanding warrant, sometimes even from another state, that results in an arrest.
Even small offenses that have been forgotten about, but they were never fully resolved, can result in an arrest warrant being issued. From that point forward, even a traffic stop can result in an arrest and incarceration.
If you find yourself behind bars because of an outstanding warrant, call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds to get out of jail and back to your regular life. Once you’re out of jail, you can address the root cause of the warrant and clear up the legal proceedings against you. But, that can be difficult to do from jail.

Posting Bail in Manhattan Beach

How is Bail Set in Manhattan Beach?
The bail for each county is set according to a schedule that is posted at each jail facility and available in court. The judge can set a different amount of bail, during a bail hearing, however. The standard Felony Bail Schedule for Los Angeles County can be found Here.
Bail Amounts in Manhattan Beach
If a person is charged with a crime that does not have a uniform bail amount provided in the Misdemeanor Bail Schedule, the bail is $500. If the charge against a defendant could be a felony or a misdemeanor charge, sometimes called a “wobbler,” and the bail is not clearly defined in the bail schedule, then the minimum bail will be $750.00. The felony bail schedule can be found here.
To figure out how much bail will be required to get someone released from jail, you can complete the felony bail worksheet found here.
You will have to follow several steps:
- List all of the offenses for which a defendant is being charged.
- Find the charge with the highest bail schedule amount.
- If the arrestee is charged with more than one offense, on separate dates or against separate victims, list the amounts of the bail required for those charges and add them to the original charge.
- Next, find if there are any enhancements that require additional bail. Enhancements include things like:
- Gang-related offenses
- Offenses committed with a weapon
- Does the defendant have any prior convictions?
- Has the arrestee been in prison during the past five years?
- Is the victim under 15 or over 65?
- After finding all base charges and all enhancements, add all of these amounts together to find the total amount of bail that will be required to bail someone out of jail.
What if I Can't Pay My Bail in Manhattan Beach?
A bail bondsman is a person who is licensed by the state, working with an agency, who can post a “bond” for you, instead of the full amount of your bail. The bail bondsman works with a Surety Company, who is a little like an insurance company. They have certain rules for issuing bonds to help people get out of jail. The person who is in jail pays a fee and the bail bondsman pays the bail.
Then, the person who has been charged with a crime can get back to their job and family, while they wait for trial. The person who had the bond posted for them is promising the bail bondsman that they will continue to show up for all of the hearings and proceedings required by their charges so that the bondsman can get the bail money back from the court.
California state law requires that the bail bondsman charge a 10% premium on bail, in order to post your bond. Sometimes that's just more than you can afford. Mr. Nice Guy understands that bail can be expensive. There are agents standing by at locations near you, to help you get out of jail for a fraction of the cost of bail. If you can't afford the premium, don't sweat it! Mr. Nice Guy has payment plans that can help get you out of jail today, back to work tomorrow, and you can pay as you can afford it.
For more details, call Mr. Nice Guy at (323) 900-0656 or (844) 400-2245.
PC 1275 Hold on Bail in Manhattan Beach
Penal Code Section 1275.1 states that if there is probable cause to suspect that the money or property being used to post bail may come from criminal activity, bail will not be accepted. This is called a 1275 Hold.
Any person who plays a part in the arresting or prosecution process can place the PC 1275 Hold on the bail. This means that they believe the money being used to bail a person out of jail comes from illegal activity. The money may be believed to come from drug dealing, gang-related activities, embezzlement, theft, or extortion. Any of these activities would make the money that came from them ineligible for paying bail.
If a1275 Hold has been placed on someone's bail, a hearing will be held to determine whether or not the money that will be used to pay the bail is, in fact, from illegal sources. In order to prove that the money is “clean,” a person will need to bring bank and credit card statements, bill payment statements, car payment information, tax returns, and proof of income to their PC 1275 Hearing.
Call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds for help in clearing up matters regarding a 1275 hold. Mr. Nice Guy and his team of licensed bail bondsmen are standing by, to help you post bail and get back to your home and family, as soon as possible.

Domestic Violence in Manhattan Beach
California domestic violence laws state that it is illegal to use physical force or make threats of harm against an intimate partner. An intimate partner includes a spouse, former spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, former girl- or boyfriend, someone you date or used to date, same-sex partner, a person you live and have an intimate relationship, or used to live and have an intimate relationship, or someone with whom you have a child. In other words, if you have, or have ever had, romantic feelings for or an intimate relationship with someone and then become involved in any kind of force, you could be charged with domestic violence charges, and not just simple battery.
Because so many victims of domestic violence make accusations of violence against a spouse or partner, only to take it back at a later time, most district attorneys offices in California have a special unit dedicated to prosecuting domestic violence. Even if the accuser recants, the prosecution will generally pursue the charges, anyway. And, if you are convicted of domestic violence, most counties impose jail time, even for first-time, misdemeanor offenders.
Examples of Domestic Violence
PC 273.5 says that it is illegal to inflict “corporal punishment” that results in an injury, no matter how slight. That means if you strike another person who is, or was, an intimate partner, and leave a mark, you have violated PC 273.5 and can be charged with domestic violence.
PC 243 (3)(1) makes it a misdemeanor crime to use force against an intimate partner. In this case, a visible injury is not necessary, just the act of force.

Drinking and Driving in Manhattan Beach
Everyone knows not to drink and drive. Doing so can result in a tragedy or a night in the county jail. That's why, when you go out with friends, you should have a “sober driver” lined up. If that driver is you, stick with water and soda ALL NIGHT. There's no point in taking chances with your life or someone else's.
If you've planned to be a designated driver, but got caught up in the fun of the evening, there's no shame in admitting that you're unfit to drive and calling an Uber or a cab for yourself or the group.
DUI and DUI of Drugs In Manhattan Beach
Failing to get a sober ride can result in you being pulled over for Driving Under the Influence. This term can apply to operating a vehicle under the influence of any substance like alcohol, drugs, or even over-the-counter and prescription drugs. Driving under the influence of drugs is also called DUI of Drugs and can bring both DUI and drug charges, at the same time.
California's legal definition of DUI is operating a vehicle under the influence of any substance, including drugs, that can affect your nervous system, brain, or muscles and includes illegal substances, prescriptions drugs, and even over the counter drugs if they affect you to a significant degree. You are driving under the influence if you drink alcohol or take any kind of drug that impairs you to the point that you are unable to drive like a sober person and, yet, you drive, anyway.
DUI Laws In Manhattan Beach, California
While driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol is illegal throughout the United States, California has some of the toughest laws for punishing those convicted of DUI charges.
The drunk driving laws for California are found in Vehicle Code Section 23152 and Vehicle Code section 23153, which says that:
- 23152(a) – It is illegal for anyone who is under the influence of alcohol to operate a vehicle
- 23152(b) It is illegal for anyone who has a blood alcohol content exceeding 0.08% or more to operate a vehicle.
- 23152(e) – It is illegal for anyone who is under the influence of drugs to operate a vehicle.
- 23152(f) – It is illegal for anyone who is under the influence of any combination of drugs or alcohol to operate a vehicle.
In many cases, both the 23152(a) and 23152(b) charges will be filed together.
DUI Bail Bonds in Manhattan Beach
Many times the amount of money required for bail is more than someone can come up with, easily.

Mr. Nice Guy and his team of licensed, professional bail bondsmen can help you negotiate the bail process and get out of jail fast.
A DUI bail bondsman will pay the bail on your behalf, and you pay the bondsman a non-refundable fee, usually 10% of the total cost of bail. When the case is resolved, the court will return the money to the person who paid it, in this case, the bail bondsmen. He keeps the fee as payment for helping to secure bail more quickly and for assistance to the court in tracking and ensuring the compliance of defendants who are out on bail.
