The Bohemian spirit of Venice Beach, CA calls to young and old alike. A world-famous attraction, Venice Beach draws more than 10 million visitors a year. As a tourist attraction, Venice Beach is second only to Disneyland in Southern California, entertaining an average of 28,000 visitors every single day. Venice Beach is far and away the busiest park facility operated by the LA Dept. of Recreation, with more than two miles of sandy beachfront, hundreds of street vendors and performers, and a number of private restaurants, bars, and shopping boutiques.

Venice Beach Boardwalk

The Venice Beach Boardwalk stretches a mile and a half along the shore of the Pacific Ocean. On the west side of the Boardwalk, street performers provide entertainment of every variety, from mimes to break dancers, jugglers to musicians. Food carts offer every kind of food imaginable and arts and crafts booths abound.

On the east side of the boardwalk, the brick and mortar stores offer t-shirt sales to boutique items, sunglasses to beer, shoes to medical marijuana. Nearly everything legal that you can imagine can be found in the shops and vendor stalls located along Venice Beach Boardwalk.

The Culture of Venice Beach

Since its inception in 1905, Venice Beach has been known for its artistic culture and Bohemian vibe. Poets, authors, and artists were drawn to the post-war Venice Beach where a group of authors gathered and formed an association that would come be known as the Beat Generation. The Beat Generation was responsible for changing many of the literary norms that had shaped the culture until then, introducing drug use, sexual liberation, and obscenity use in published work.

In Venice Beach, artists of all types live and thrive in the expressive culture so native to the town. World-famous art-walls are located at the open pavilion on Venice Beach. Along Abbot Kinney road, visitors will discover works of art painted on the buildings along the street, between the buildings. Some of the most renowned tattoo artists in the country are based in Venice Beach, at parlors with intriguing names like Black Diamond Tattoo, Black Rose Tattoo, and the Ink Monkey Tattoo.

Bail in Venice 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.

Bail Bonds in Venice 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.

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!

Federal Immigration Bonds in Venice Beach, CA

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.

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.

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.

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 Venice 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.

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:

  • Physical Abuse
  • Verbal Abuse
  • Abusing Trust
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Emotional Abuse
  • Psychological Abuse
  • Coercion
  • Harassment
  • Economic control
  • threats and intimidation
  • Destruction of Property
  • Isolation

Other Names For Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is the most common term used to describe a variety of behaviors and crimes related to violence or threatened violence between people who have or have had a romantic relationship.

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.

Who Qualifies as an Intimate Partner?

  • A spouse
  • A Former Spouse
  • A Cohabitant (someone you live with)
  • A Former Cohabitant (someone you used to live with)
  • A Boyfriend (including same-sex boyfriends)
  • A Girlfriend (including same-sex girlfriends)
  • A Fiance'
  • A Former Fiance'
  • The Parent of Your Child

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. (b) Subdivision (a) shall apply if the victim is or was one or more of the following: (1) The offender's spouse or former spouse. (2) The offender's cohabitant or former cohabitant. (3) The offender's fiancé or fiancée, or someone with whom the offender has, or previously had, an engagement or dating relationship, as defined in paragraph (10) of subdivision (f) of Section 243. (4) The mother or father of the offender's child.”

Drinking and Driving in Venice 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 Venice 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 Venice 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 Venice Beach

Many times the amount of money required for bail is more than someone can come up with, easily.

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.

PC 1275 Hold on Bail in Venice 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 a 1275 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.
