In 1936, Bing Crosby, with fellow members Gary Cooper and Pat O’Brien, led the Thoroughbred Club in building the Del Mar Racetrack at the Fairgrounds in Del Mar. The stands hold a crowd of 44,000 spectators, making the Del Mar Racetrack the second largest horse-racing venue in the western U.S. Racing in Del Mar is live from July to September, with a second live race held in November. During the off-season, a satellite wagering facility operates at the racetrack, Wednesday through Sunday.

Bail in Del Mar, CA

If you or someone you love is arrested in Del Mar, your first thought will likely be, “How can I get out of jail fast!?!” The fastest way to get out of jail is by posting bail. Bail is money paid to the court, to obtain the release of an arrested individual. The money is held by the court to ensure that the defendant complies with all of the terms of his or her pre-trial release. This includes showing up for any and all court appearances and hearings. Once the legal proceedings have been concluded, the bail money is returned to the person who paid it.

How Much is Bail?

Once you've been charged with a crime in Del Mar, the bail schedule will be posted at the jail where you are processed or you can access it online here. Many times when a person is charged with more than one crime, each charge will incur its own bail amount. In order to get out of jail, you will have to pay the entire amount of the combined bail, for all of the crimes with which you have been charged. The amount varies, depending on the seriousness of the charges.

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 Del Mar

Many times the amount of bail is more than a person, or even a family, can come up with. The way that charges are layered and enhanced can mean a very high bail amount due. When you can't come up with the entire amount of bail, or if you choose to keep your cash on hand to help pay for an attorney or take care of family expenses while you pursue your legal defense, bail bonds offer a way to get out of jail for less.

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.

VC 23152(e) – DUI of Drugs in Del Mar

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.

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.

(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."

Corporal Punishment of a Spouse or Cohabitant (PC 273.5)

When we say corporal punishment in this sense, we aren't talking about the kind of punishment a child might receive at the hands of a principle or angry parent. When the law speaks of the “Corporal Injury of a Spouse or Cohabitant,” they mean harm that is intentionally inflicted on someone with whom the perpetrator has an “intimate relationship.”

The legal definition of Corporal Punishment of a Spouse or Cohabitant is: “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.
