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.
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 on bail bonds for child endangerment charges, call Mr. Nice Guy at (844) 400-2245.
Arrested on an Outstanding Warrant
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!

Drunk Driving Arrest in Pasadena, CA
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, Lyft, or a cab for yourself or the group.
DUI Laws In Pasadena, 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 With Great Bodily Injury
California Vehicle Code 23153 VC deals with injuries caused by a person driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Code 23153 VC reads:
"(a) It is unlawful for a person, while under the influence of any alcoholic beverage to drive a vehicle and concurrently do any act forbidden by law, or neglect any duty imposed by law in driving the vehicle, which act or neglect proximately causes bodily injury to any person other than the driver. (b) It is unlawful for a person, while having 0.08 percent or more, by weight, of alcohol in his or her blood to drive a vehicle and concurrently do any act forbidden by law, or neglect any duty imposed by law in driving the vehicle, which act or neglect proximately causes bodily injury to any person other than the driver. . . . (e) It is unlawful for a person, while under the influence of any drug, to drive a vehicle and concurrently do any act forbidden by law, or neglect any duty imposed by law in driving the vehicle, which act or neglect proximately causes bodily injury to any person other than the driver."
VC 23152(e) – DUI of Drugs Charge
Driving under the influence of Drugs is a violation of the Vehicle Code 231452(e), which reads: “It is unlawful for a person who is under the influence of any drug to drive a vehicle.” It is very similar to driving under the influence of alcohol. One way that this charge differs from a regular “DUI” charge is that when an officer suspects the presence of drugs in someone's system, a breathalyzer test will not show drugs and a blood test will have to be ordered. Other evidence that can be used to charge someone with DUI of drugs includes the defendant's statements, behavior, and appearance.
For DUI of Drug bail bonds, call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds at (844) 400-2245.

Domestic Violence in Pasadena, California
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.
Domestic Violence – PC 13700
Domestic Violence is defined as “abuse committed against an adult or fully emancipated minor who is a spouse, former spouse, cohabitant, or a person with whom the suspect has had a child or is having or has had a dating or engagement relationship.” (California Penal Code, Section 13700)
The definition of abuse can include:

Other terms for domestic violence include:
- Corporal Injury of Spouse
- Corporal Injury of a Cohabitant
- Domestic Abuse
- Spousal Abuse
- Violation of Penal Code 273.5
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.
Corporal Injury Charges – PC 273.5
Corporal injury, or more specifically “corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant,” is defined by California law as “willfully inflicting a physical injury that causes a 'traumatic condition' on an intimate partner.” Let's define a few of these terms, to understand better what could be considered corporal injury.

In other words, anyone you have had a romantic or intimate relationship with, at any point, for any length of time, would be considered an intimate partner.
What is considered a “physical injury?”
- Any Injury That Leaves a Mark, Such As A Bruise Or Cut
What is a Violation of PC 273.5?
Penal Code 273.5 reads: "(a) Any person who willfully inflicts corporal injury resulting in a traumatic condition upon a victim described in subdivision (b) is guilty of a felony, and upon conviction thereof shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years, or in a county jail for not more than one year, or by a fine of up to six thousand dollars ($6,000) or by both that fine and imprisonment.

Assault and Battery Charges
Assault and battery are often used together, which might lead you to think that the two charges are the same, or, at least, two parts of a single charge. But, the truth is much more complicated than that. While the two are related, and you could be charged with both, they are two distinct and separate crimes.
Battery Charges – PC 242
Battery is defined as the willful, unlawful use of force against another person. This is a violation of Penal Code 242 and must have three separate elements:
- The act must be willful and unlawful
- Force or violence is used
- The willful use of violence or force is used against another person.
In other words, you have to intend to use force or violence, it has to involve another person, but it doesn't have to actually cause any damage, injury, or harm. In fact, you don't even have to touch the body of the other person, in order to be guilty of battery. If you touch anything that is “intimately connected” to the other person, like their clothing or something they are holding, in a disrespectful or rude way, you could be charged with battery.
Assault Charges - PC 240
The crime of assault doesn't require any physical contact. You may have heard, or even used, the phrase, “He (or she) assaulted me!” in a situation where someone was actually hurt by physical violence. However, assault is not necessarily an attack of any kind, but merely the attempt to make unlawful contact with the intent of doing harm.
There are three components of assault:
- There must be an unlawful attempt
- There must be ability
- There must be another person upon whom violence or injury was threatened or attempted
“Attempt” means that someone tried to do something; not that they thought about it or wanted to, but that they tried.
Assault With a Deadly Weapon - PC 245(a)(1)
The crime of assault doesn’t require any physical contact to actually take place. To be charged with assault, one need merely attempt to harm someone else and have the ability to do so. The charge Assault With a Deadly Weapon (ADW) the basic assault need only be accompanied by any weapon that could be considered “deadly.”
PC 245(a)(1) reads: "Any person who commits an assault upon the person of another with a deadly weapon or instrument other than a firearm shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or four years, or in a county jail for not exceeding one year, or by a fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or by both the fine and imprisonment."
A person could be charged with “assault with a deadly weapon” if he or she uses any weapon that could reasonably be considered dangerous or deadly to attempt to harm another person, even if the other person is not actually harmed.
Deadly weapons include:
- Dangerous Animals
The charge of assault with a deadly weapon is what is called a “wobbler” in California. This means that it can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances. Felony charges carry much more serious penalties than the misdemeanor version, including up to four years in a state prison.

1% Bail Bonds
You’ve probably been hearing a lot about 1% bail bonds, lately. It seems everyone is offering bail bonds at lower and lower rates. It’s important to note, however, that the actual cost of bail bonds remains much the same as it ever has been. The 1% bail bond rates that you see advertised are merely a down payment for bail bonds, and the rest of the bail bond fee must still be paid.
With that being said, however, 1% bail bonds is still a great way to help hardworking people get out of jail and back to work when they otherwise couldn’t afford to secure a bail bond, at all. A 1% down payment (even nothing down in some cases) can get an individual out of jail and back to work, supporting themselves and their family, while they work through the legal part of the charges they were arrested for.
If you’re looking for 1% bail bonds, call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds at (844) 400-2245. Nobody can get you out of jail for less!
