Carlsbad Bail Bonds

Bail Bonds in Carlsbad, California

Carlsbad, California developed as a resort town in the last half of the 19th century, offering water discovered by John Frazier that was determined to be similar, chemically, to water found at some of Europe’s finest resorts. A concerted marketing campaign brought many visitors and new residents to Carlsbad during the 1880s. The town developers chose Karlsbad, in Western Bohemia, from which to take their name, in an effort to underscore their unique “spa” qualities. 

As the area grew, the fertile land surrounding Carlsbad proved to be profitable for the growing of citrus fruits, avocados, and olives. When land prices began dropping in Carlsbad during the late 1880s, the town was able to rely on its agricultural base for financial support.

Located 35 miles north of San Diego, Carlsbad enjoys a semi-arid climate with mild temperatures and lots of sunshine. The summers see almost no rain, which made the development of the largest desalination plant in the nation. The Claude “Bud” Lewis Carlsbad Desalination Plant produces 40 billion gallons of water per year, enough water to supply 400,000 people. The desalination plant is located next to the Encina Power Station in Carlsbad and supplies water to the San Diego County Water Authority.

Legoland California

In March 1999, the first Legoland in the US opened in Carlsbad, CA. The Lego-themed park includes a lego-themed aquarium, water park, and two hotels. The park includes places for toddlers to play, an “archaeological” dig where children can “find” dinosaur bones, and a series of smaller amusement parks with themed rides and attractions.

Skateboarding in Carlsbad, CA

Over the years, Carlsbad has served as the developmental nucleus for the worldwide phenomenon of skateboarding. Skateboarding was invented by bored surfers who needed something to do when the waves were flat, so they began adding roller skate wheels to their surfboards to “surf” the city streets.

By 1964, surfboard makers, Larry Gordon and Floyd Smith, had begun production on the Fibreflex skateboard, the first laminated board created specifically for the skateboard market.  In March 1976, the first modern skateboard park in the world was built in Carlsbad. Though the skatepark has since been demolished to make way for a new industrial park, two other skateboard parks in Carlsbad have taken its place.

Skateboarding legend, Tony Hawk, was born in Carlsbad, CA. Considered the best competitive skater in the world by age 16, Tony Hawk went on to win the National Skateboard Association world championship twelve years in a row, inventing more than fifty skateboarding tricks along the way. Tony’s son, Riley Hawk, is following in his father’s footsteps, turning pro on his 21st birthday, in 2013 and winning the Skateboarder’s Amateur of the Year.

The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch

The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch are open from March 1 through the middle of May, each year. The flower fields consist of nearly 50-acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers that bloom for six to eight weeks, each year. The flower fields are the legacy of Luther Gage, an early settler of Carlsbad, who introduced Ranunculus seeds to the area. During the blooming season, the beautiful flowers draw hundreds of visitors to tour the fields and enjoy the magnificent sight. The Ranunculus bulbs are then sold throughout the US through a marketing agreement with Armstrong Garden Center.

(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.

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.

Get Out of Jail in Carlsbad

In California, when you've been charged with a crime, you'll need to post bail in order to get out of jail while you await your charges. The court will hold the amount of bail money that you've deposited with them and return it to you when your case has reached its close.

There are different types of bail in California. Bail for appearance in California is for crimes only involving state violations. There are also Federal violations which may require bail, if you commit, or are accused of committing a federal crime. Immigration violations can also require a substantial bond if it is granted. Depositing bail with the court, for any of these types of bail or bond, allows a person to get out of jail, and the money will be returned, if that person follows through on all of their legal proceedings.

However, it is often difficult for defendants to come up with the total amount of bail required. This is when you need to call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds.

If this 10% is still more than you can come up with quickly, Mr. Nice Guy and his team of licensed, friendly professionals will work with you to create a repayment plan.
