Solana Beach Bail Bonds

Bail Bonds in Solana Beach, CA

Just thirty minutes north of downtown San Diego, Solana Beach, California lies nestled along the Southern Coast between Cardiff by the Sea and Del Mar. Once covered in avocado groves, Solana Beach is now a thriving SoCal beach town filled with a broad mix of families, conservationists, and surfers.

Solana Beach is home to one of only three train stations in San Diego County to serve both Amtrak and the Coaster. Train access, combined with easy access from Hwy 101 makes Solana beach a popular destination for those seeking a day in the sun or an afternoon of shopping in the eclectic shops and trendy boutiques that line the streets of Solana.

The area now known as Solana Beach was originally called Lockwood Mesa and it remained largely unsettled until the Lake Hodges Dam was built in 1917 and 1918. The development of the Santa Fe Irrigation District ensured water accessibility for Solana Beach and promoted growth of the Southern California Coastline from there to Solana Beach.

The city incorporated in 1986. That same year, the city hosted the funeral of Desi Arnaz, who had lived and died in the city of Del Mar, just to the south of Solana Beach. The funeral was held at the St. James Roman Catholic Church, in Solana.

La Colonia de Eden Gardens

One of the oldest residential neighborhoods in Solana Beach, Eden Gardens was originally settled by Mexican farmers that worked the larges ranches in nearby Rancho Santa Fe. Eden Gardens allowed the farmers to have their families settle close by and the farmers named their new settlement La Colonia. Later, a marketing director would rename the area Eden Gardens, but the locals still prefer the original La Colonia, and the neighborhood is often referred to using both titles, La Colonia de Eden Gardens.

San Dieguito County Park

On the west side of Solana Beach lies an impressive county-maintained park, San Dieguito Park. San Dieguito is named for the native people who originally settled the Solana Beach and Del Mar areas. The park includes a wedding gazebo, miles of hiking trails, five playgrounds, a basketball court, and picnic areas with barbecue grills.

From Activity Hill, visitors to the park can experience ten fitness stations, three hillside ladders and lookout platforms, TRACK Trails for kids complete with nature scavenger hunts, and two suspension bridges. The park is open to visitors from 9:30 AM until sunset and costs only $3 for parking.

San Dieguito Park is a popular wedding venue that hosts ceremonies year-round, thanks to the famously mild and sunny weather of Solana Beach. The parks of San Diego County provide wedding venues that offer many choices for customizing a beautiful wedding, including several gazebos suitable for exchanging vows, a lakeside location for larger audiences, a Victorian Garden nestled beside a historic ranch house, and indoor locations that include a vintage temple and reception hall. The San Dieguito Park wedding venue includes a secluded, wrought iron gazebo that provides an intimate wedding experience.

The Beaches of Solana Beach

The once inaccessible beaches of Solana Beach were made usable by the perseverance and ingenuity of Colonel Ed Fletcher, who purchased the land that would become Solana Beach for $20 an acre, in 1922.  Water from the Lake Hodges Dam spillway was used to erode the cliffs, creating access to Fletcher Cove and the beach there. Fletcher Cove Beach was opened with great fanfare on July 4, 1925. The festivities included a horse race along the beach.

Fletcher Cove

The secluded Fletcher Cover beach is a popular place for swimming, surfing, and kayaking. The beach has been recently renovated and is the city’s primary park, featuring a playground, ornate sidewalks, wide lawns and plenty of sitting areas to enjoy the peaceful beach scenery. The park is free to use and parking is free, as well. No alcohol consumption or tobacco use is permitted at the park and dogs are required to be on a leash and owners must pick up after their animals at all times.

Bail in Solana Beach, CA

If you or someone you love is arrested in Solana Beach, 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 pretrial 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 Solana Beach, 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 Solana Beach

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.

Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds has offices located throughout Southern California and can have a licensed bail bondsman by your side in minutes to help you through the bail process and place a bail bond for you and get you home fast.

Arrested On Outstanding Warrant

Sometimes minor offenses (or no offense at all) can result in an arrest if you have an outstanding warrant against you. If you happen to be crossing the border from Mexico to California, the border patrol will run your drivers license before allowing you to enter the country. Occasionally this will result in the border officers discovering an outstanding warrant, sometimes even from another state, that results in an arrest.

Even small offenses that have been forgotten about, but they 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.

DUI Laws In Solana 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(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.

Public Intoxication (PC 647)(f)

One of the most common charges to 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.

Assault and Battery Bail Bonds in Solana Beach

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:

  1. The act must be willful and unlawful
  2. Force or violence is used
  3. 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:

  1. There must be an unlawful attempt
  2. There must be ability
  3. 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:

  • Knives
  • Guns
  • Hammers
  • Screwdrivers
  • 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.
