Marina del Rey Bail Bonds

Bail Bonds in Marina del Rey

Located south of Santa Monica, on the west side of Los Angeles County, Marina del Rey is an unincorporated community built around North America’s largest man-made harbor. The harbor itself is home to nearly 5,000 boats and serves as a major tourist destination for the greater Los Angeles area. The harbor is owned and operated by Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors. Once a salt marsh, the original small-craft harbor was developed by Louise Mesmer and named Port Ballona. In 1935 the Army Corps of Engineers identified Marina del Rey as a possible commercial harbor site, but the area lost out to San Pedro as the Los Angeles Harbor was improved, instead. However, in 1953, the county authorized funding to begin construction on the marina. In the end, the construction of Marina del Rey took ten years and cost more than $36 million.

Marina del Rey Community

The population of Marina del Rey is barely more than the number of boats anchored in the harbor. Less than 9,000 people make Marina del Rey their home. The Marina Peninsula, located next to Marina del Rey is considered a part of the Marina del Rey community but is actually within the Los Angeles city limits.

Burton Chace Park in Marina del Rey

Comprised of approximately 12 acres, the Burton Chace Park in Marina del Rey is named for the former Mayor of Long Beach, Burton W. Chace. The park first opened in 1972 and features a multitude of facilities ideal for hosting community events. Park amenities include multipurpose rooms, pergolas, picnic shelters and tables, barbecue grills, outdoor programs, and breathtaking views of the harbor.

The park hosts a number of outdoor, community events throughout the year. In the summer, Burton Chace Park hosts the Marina del Rey Summer Concert Series, featuring a variety of musical genres and performance troupes in July and August. In May, the MarinaFest event at Chace Park features a boat show, harbor tours, vendor booths, and children’s activities. In June, the park hosts Southern California’s largest fishing tournament, The Marina del Rey Annual Halibut Derby. The fishing competition attracts thousands of visitors and nearly 1,000 participants each year.

July in Chace Park is a busy time! The park hosts a fourth of July fireworks show that is second to none, with fireworks shot from a barge in the Marina’s main channel, providing a spectacular display of firepower. The fireworks start at dark, which is usually right around 9 PM.

Also in July, the park hosts an Old Fashioned Day in the Park, which a free event featuring vintage yachts, antique cars and motorcycles, and ship modeling demonstrations. Even a steam ride across the harbor is free! The Old Fashion Day in the Park is typically held the third or fourth week of July. See the Marina del Rey website for more information.

In the fall, Chace Park hosts the Discover Marina del Rey event in October, Harbor Kayaking in both October and November, and the Marina del Rey Holiday Magic Boat Parade in December. And, on New Year’s Eve, the Park hosts another spectacular fireworks display.

Bail in Marina del Rey

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.

Bail Bonds in Marina del Rey

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.

Child Endangerment Bail Bonds

PC 273(a) is the Penal Code that makes endangering a child a crime in the State of California. Sometimes, child endangerment is also referred to as Child Abuse. However, this is incorrect. The charge of child abuse is a violation of Penal Code 273d, which makes it a crime to physical harm or abuse a child. But, someone who is charged under the child endangerment code, PC 273a, need only have put a child in POSSIBLE danger.

Charges Related to Child Endangerment

  • Child Neglect PC 270 – Failure To Provide Care For A Child
  • Failure to Pay Child Support or Spousal Support – PC 270(f)
  • PC 270.1(a) – Failure to Supervise a Child’s School Attendance – Truancy
  • Child Abandonment or Neglect – PC 270.5 (a)
  • Corporal Injury of a Child (Child Abuse) – PC 273(d)

Child Endangerment as an Enhancement

Often, child endangerment is not the primary charge against someone or the root reason for interaction with the police. Many time, child abuse or child endangerment is either discovered as a result of investigating another charge or added on as an enhancement to a charge.

Bail Bonds For Child Endangerment Charges

When the amount of bail needed to get out of jail is more than a person can easily pay, a bail bondsman can be of service. 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.

Outstanding Warrant Arrest

Sometimes minor offenses (or no offense at all) can result in an arrest if you have an outstanding warrant against you. Even small offenses that have been forgotten about, which 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.

To get out of jail fast, call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds at (844) 400-BAIL.

Public Intoxication (PC 647)(f)

One of the most common charges that result in an arrest is the charge of public intoxication. Public drunkenness is also sometimes referred to as “Drunk & Disorderly” and is often the result of complaints from people associated with or sharing a public space with the person who is drinking or drunk in public.

There is more to being charged with public drunkenness, or drunk and disorderly, than simply drinking and being in public. Generally, an arrest for drunk and disorderly is also associated with fighting or causing some sort of disturbance in public, while also being intoxicated.

If you or someone you care about is arrested for public intoxication, public drunkenness, or drunk and disorderly, call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds to get out of jail fast. Call (619) 777-7119 or (844) 400-BAIL for drunk and disorderly bail bonds today!

Reckless Driving Charges

California Vehicle Code 23103 defines reckless driving as “willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property” while driving a vehicle. This can include driving your car on a public or private road or even in a parking facility. The penalties for reckless driving can include up to 90 days in jail and fines up to $1,000.

If you or someone you know is arrested for reckless driving, call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds at (844) 400-2245 to get out of jail fast!

Domestic Violence in Marina del Rey

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 Marina del Rey

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 Marina del Rey

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 Marina del Rey, 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.
