Serving in the Military in California
As of September 2017, California was home to more than 184,000 active duty and reserve military members. It is also home to one of the highest civilian military employee populations in the nation, second only to Virginia. The dedicated men and women who serve our nation may find themselves stationed at any one of the military bases around the state. Three of the largest installations in California are:
Located just outside of Barstow, California, Fort Irwin has been a military base since 1940 when it was designated as the Mojave Anti-Aircraft Gunnery Range. The base was renamed Fort Irwin in 1961, after Major General George Irwin. Fort Irwin is considered the top training area for the United States Army and is home to nearly 9,000 full-time residents. Approximately 4,000 to 5,000 soldiers come and go for training each month, as well. The closest town to “let off steam” for military members based at Fort Irwin is in Barstow, to the southwest.
Beale Air Force Base
Camp Beale near Marysville, California is one of the largest US Air Force bases on the west coast and home to approximately 4,000 active duty personnel and their families. The 9th Reconnaissance Wing, based at Camp Beale, is tasked with gathering intelligence information that affects the national defense decisions reached by the President of the United States and Congress.
Camp Pendleton in San Diego, CA
Home to one of the most intense amphibious training programs in the armed forces, Camp Pendleton has been a part of the San Diego landscape since World War II. Home to the Corps’ largest West Coast training facility, Camp Pendleton covers more than 125,000 acres in Southern California. The base is responsible for training not only Marine Corps personnel but active and reserve Army and Navy units, as well.

What Happens if You’re Arrested While Enlisted?
Despite stories to the contrary, military members who arrested off base do not usually get preferential treatment from law enforcement officers. In fact, because a higher standard of conduct is expected from those who wear the uniform, you may be even more likely to face jail time after an arrest.
Arrested Off Base
If you are arrested off base, it's important to remember to STAY CALM! This may be difficult, but the more you are able to control yourself, the better of you’ll be. Remaining calm during the interaction with police can avoid additional, and more serious, charges, such as assault and battery against a police officer.
- Cooperate with police officers, physically. Don't resist them, even if they feel the need to restrain you.
- Speak as calmly as possible, if you choose to answer their questions.
- Don't speak to or yell at the other party in the altercation.
- Conduct yourself in a dignified way, allowing the officers to see that your behavior was only what was necessary for self-defense.
If you are arrested and charged with battery, the arresting officer should inform you of your Miranda Rights:
- You have the right to remain silent – They can't make you talk, other than to provide your name, address, and show some sort of identification, upon request.
- Anything you say can be used against you – If you choose to talk to the authorities, the statements you make can be used against you in court.
- You have the right to an attorney – You can ask to have an attorney present while they question you. If you ask for an attorney but continue to talk to the officers, while you wait for your attorney, the answers you give can still be used against you.
- As a member of the military, you may have access to free or discounted legal advice. Contact your chain of command to have an attorney assist you. If you do not want to contact command and you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to assist you.
Bail Bonds for Military Members
Bail is an amount of money that the court holds onto to ensure that you'll show up to court to see your charges through to the end. Being arrested and charged with a crime is just the first step in a long, legal process that you'll have to work through to get your life back to normal. You'll have to show up in court for arraignment, a preliminary hearing, and then a trial, as well as a number of meetings with prosecutors and attorneys along the way.
The court system doesn't want to have to keep everyone in jail throughout this process, especially military members who need to get back to base as quickly as possible. Bail is one way that the court ensures arrested individuals will show up for court appearances and cooperate with the legal proceedings against them. By setting an amount for “bail” a person can deposit money with the court that allows them to get out of jail to work and live, while their case is getting through the legal system. And, they get that money back once they've completed everything and their case has come to a conclusion.
How Much is Bail?
Once you've been charged with a crime, the bail schedule for each crime should be posted at the jail where you are processed. Many times 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.
Some examples of bail in California are:
Misdemeanor Charges PC Violation Bail Amount
Violation of Probation PC 1203.2 $5,000
Carrying a Concealed Firearm PC 12025(b)(7) $5,000
Exhibiting a Firearm PC 417(a)(2) $10,000
Indecent Exposure PC 314 $5,000
Possession of Underage Obscenity PC 311.11(a) $10,000
Failure to Register as a Sex Offender PC 290 $10,000
Violation of a Protective Order PC 273.65 $10.000
Interfering with Emergency Personel PC 148.2 $5,000

Hate Crime PC 422.75(a) $20,000
Carrying Firearm During Com. of Crime PC 12021.5(b) $20,000 – 30,000
Theft over $100,000 PC 1203.045 $50,000
Discharging a Firearm in the Comm. of Felony PC 12022.53(c) $200,000
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. And, the good news is, we offer military discounts on bail bonds! Call for Military Bail Bonds (844) 400-2245.
Getting a DUI Off Base
Driving under the influence of alcohol is illegal throughout the nation. But, California has some of the toughest DUI laws around.
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.
To put it in layman's terms, DUI charges result when a person drives or otherwise operates a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Whenever you are planning a fun evening (or day) out with friends and alcohol may be consumed, it is always best to either designate a driver who will not be drinking or to utilize some sort of public or paid transportation like a taxi service or Uber driver.
DUI Causing Death Or Injury
California Vehicle Code 23153 VC deals with death or injuries caused by a person driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Code 23153 VC reads:
"(a) It is unlawful for a person, while under the influence of any alcoholic beverage 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. (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. "
Vehicular Manslaughter While Intoxicated
If you kill someone while driving drunk, you could be charged with vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, a more serious crime than DUI causing injury. This charge may result if you drive under the influence and inadvertently cause the death of another person.
If, while driving under the influence, you intentionally engage in activity that is likely to result in the death of another person, you could be charged with gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, which carries an even more serious penalty.
Military Discounts for DUI Bail Bonds
Each person arrested for DUI will have an opportunity to post bail in order to get out of jail and back home to prepare for the upcoming court case. The bail schedule is available at each booking facility and county jail or it can be located online here.
Bail is an amount of money deposited with the court to secure a person's release from jail until their legal case can be resolved. Once a person has paid their bail to the court, the court will hold the money and allow the defendant to return home to work and family, until their legal proceedings come to a close. The bail schedule outlines the amount of bail required for each offense. In order to understand the full amount of bail that will be required to secure someone's release, you must know all of the charges against the defendant and add all of the bail amounts together.
Once the legal process has been completed, whether convicted or not, the money used for bail is returned to the person who posted it with the court. If a friend or family member posts bail with the court system, then the money is returned to the person who posted it.
