Sam is out enjoying himself with friends on a night out when suddenly, he is arrested. The police tracked him down after realizing he was violating the legal curfew laid down by the authority while getting his bail and further found him consuming alcoholic beverages. Sam is taken into police custody for not maintaining the legal restrictions set forth in his bail arrest. What if something similar happened to you?

Process of Getting bailed out: When a person is arrested again while being out on bail, it becomes difficult to get bail for the second time. More often than not, bail is set at an amount higher than prescribed by a bail schedule.

• The amount will still be within legal limits so as to not constitute pre-trial punishment. However, if you are unable to pay the amount, the fastest way to obtain the second bail is through a bail bondsman.
• If such a bond business has already helped you the first time, it is advisable to seek out their support again. As they are aware of your case already, they can act quickly and draw up a strong bail application.
• The court may even revoke the original bail and increase conditions. In such a messy situation, a bondsman can guide you through the repayment and explain new rules that you have to follow.

“Gag order” or Name Suppression: It prevents identifying information, such as your name or personal details from being posted in the public domain. Newspapers, online news portals, and any form of media are subject to this legal prohibition. It is available in a variety of situations:

• For defendants accused of sexual offenses.
• For minor defendants facing criminal charges
• By specific laws, for instance, section 438 of the Oranga Tamariki Act of 1989 restricts publication of any Youth Court proceedings, with few exceptions.

Therefore, the defendants arrested while on bail continue to enjoy these rights previously granted by the court. The purpose is to prevent “extreme hardship” to the defendant and their loved ones, ensure a free and fair trial, keep all involved parties safe, or sometimes in the interests of national security.


The California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (2016): This Act modified the Penal Code 1546, particularly Section 1546.2 (b)(1). It enforced the provision to allow court orders to delay notification and prohibit any party providing information from notifying a third party.

• Managing bail and pre-trial proceedings without help can cause undue stress and confusion, especially if criminal charges are involved.
• Hire a criminal defense attorney to represent you during interrogations and court proceedings. There might be newer charges against you made during the second arrest, and bail bondsmen can refer experienced lawyers to prove your innocence even after two arrests.

Defendants in California may contact a bail bondsman across Sacramento valley to get a fast bail in their most needed hour. One may count on a bondsman to obtain a “second freedom” before his trial in court.
