Visalia Bail Bonds

Bail Bonds in Visalia, CA

Visalia, CA, located in central California, is the county seat of Tulare County. Visalia is the most populated city in the county, with just over 130,000 residents, but only the fifth most populous city in the San Joaquin Valley. Visalia shares the Central Valley with Fresno, Bakersfield, Stockton and Modesto, which all have larger populations than Visalia.

Located nearly in the center of California, the City of Visalia enjoys a moderate climate with cooler winters and warmer summers and plenty of sunshine. The fertile soil, warm climate, and sunshine are the perfect environment to make Visalia one of the most productive agricultural centers in the nation.

Agriculture in Visalia

The fertile San Joaquin Valley is the most productive agricultural region in the world, according to the University of California. Situated in the middle of the Central Valley, Visalia’s economy is primarily driven by agriculture, producing grapes, olives, cotton, and citrus. The nursery giant Monrovia has a 600-acre farm located in Visalia, their largest facility in the US. Table grapes and wine grapes are grown in an abundance in the fields surrounding Visalia, CA.

Mooney Grove Park

The City of Visalia is built where a dense forest of Valley Oak Trees once stood. Conservation efforts by the city strive to maintain a healthy urban forest, particularly in Mooney Grove Park, one of the largest groves of Valley Oak in California. Mooney Grove Park is the county’s oldest public park, purchased from the Mooney family in 1909 and preserved as a “public pleasure ground and park” ever since. Today, the park offers a lagoon with rental boats, a pioneer village with historical buildings, picnicking, a playground, horseshoe pits, and spaces for baseball and disc golf. Located at 27000 S Mooney Blvd, the park costs $6 per vehicle to enter and is open every day from 8 AM to 5 PM Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday and until 7 PM Saturday and Sunday. The park is closed on Tuesdays.

Legal Trouble in the Early Days of Visalia

Visalia’s early years saw the town at the center of controversy, as it served as the home base for several of California’s most notorious villains. In 1893, train bandits John Sontag and Chris Evans were wounded and captured just outside of Visalia in the Battle of Stone Corral. John died three weeks later from wounds sustained during the battle, while Chris Evans would go on to serve 17 years at Folsom Prison. John Sontag’s brother, George, had been captured during another shootout in Visalia a year before the Battle of Stone Corral and was given a life sentence.

During the Civil War years, the people of Visalia displayed strong support for both sides of the conflict.  Many of the original settlers of Visalia were Southerners by birth and felt strong support for the Confederacy. However, many Northern supporters could also be found among the citizens of Visalia. These opposing views led to a number of violent conflicts in the town, eventually leading to the Union establishing a military garrison, Camp Babbit, to quell Southern support.

Bail in Visalia, CA

Bail is a process that has been used since before the Revolutionary War. Cash bail allows an individual accused of a crime to deposit an amount of money with the court system as a guarantee that they will appear in court for their trail and pre-trial appearances and comply with the terms of their release. Upon completion of the legal proceedings related to their criminal charges, the bail is returned to the person who paid it to the court.

Bail in California is set by the Superior Court of each county. In Visalia, bail is set by the Superior Court of Tulare County. The bail schedule defines a standard amount of bail for common charges and is posted at every jail facility. The bail schedule for Visalia can be seen here or you can contact Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds for assistance in calculating the bail and determining the best method for posting bail or bail bond. Call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds at (844) 400-2245.

Bail Bonds in Visalia

For many people, it can be difficult to come up with the entire amount of money that is due for bail. Not only is a great deal of money involved, but that money will be tied up with the court system for a long time. Some cases can take over a year to come to an end. After the case has ended, it can sometimes take some time to get the money back from the court system.

Most people, facing a substantial amount of bail, just don't have the cash to pay the bail outright. A person can post property as a form of bail, but the amount of value in the property has to be double the value of the bail being sought. Often, it's easier to get help from a bail bondsman like Mr. Nice Guy (844)400-2245.

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, which 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 locations all over California and can work with you to post a bond and get you out of jail in no time. For assistance with arranging bail bonds in Visalia, call Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds at (844) 400-2245.

Battery Charges

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

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

While assault is defined as an attempt to commit injury against another person, assault with a deadly weapon is a violation of PC 245(a)(1) which 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."

PC245(1)(4) also defines assault with a deadly weapon as an assault that is committed EITHER with a “deadly weapon” OR “by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury.”

Assault with a deadly weapon is a “wobbler” in California, meaning that it can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor charge. How the assault is charged can depend on a number of factors, including whether the person who was assaulted is a law enforcement officer or other protected person. The severity of the injuries sustained by the victim are also a factor in determining the severity of the charges of assault with a deadly weapon.

Bail Bonds for Assault With a Deadly Weapon

If you have been charged with assault with a deadly weapon, you are unlikely to be granted release on recognizance, or ROR. Bail amounts for these types of charges can be quite high, making it difficult for a defendant or their families to pay the bail out of pocket. Mr. Nice Guy Bail Bonds can assist you in arranging bail bonds for assault with a deadly weapon.

Call (844) 400-BAIL to speak with a licensed bail bondsman about bail bonds for assault.
