How Using a Check Cashing Store Could Help You Pay Bail Bonds

Even the most organized person can’t plan for unexpected events. The fact is that sometimes life throws you a curve ball. You have to react quickly to avoid creating/prolonging an unpleasant or uncomfortable situation.

One of those outcomes is when you or a loved one is arrested. The first thing on your mind is how to get out of that environment. Still, when emotions are running high, it can be difficult to think of all the options available to you. That’s where a check cashing store can help. Read on to discover a safe and legal way to pay for bail bonds.

Know the Process

When someone is arrested, a judge will often set bail. This is a monetary value that can be paid to release the person from jail while details of the case are being decided. In most cases, individuals pay a percentage of the total posted bail (sometimes referred to as a “bond”).

Bail is up to the judge’s discretion, and many factors are taken into consideration, including:

  • flight risk
  • criminal history
  • severity of the crime
  • family obligations
  • medical requirements
  • public safety
  • and more

Be prepared to provide the bail bonds company with answers to detailed information, such as why the individual is in custody, personal details (such as legal name), bail amount, and other specific information.

In some cases, you can also pay the full bail amount with the court or jail. In any event, once bail terms have been determined, payday loans are a great method to quickly get the funds you require to help a loved one in need.

Find a Reliable Source of Cash

When you or a friend/family member is in jail, it’s only natural to think of ways to promptly return home. Some people resort to drastic measures to meet bail requirements. The problem is, rash decisions can have long-lasting consequences. Other ideas are good, but would take too long to generate rapid income. For example, garage sales, metal recycling, and other options only eat up precious time.

By contrast, since a cash advance deals with your current income, you get the peace of mind that there won’t be any surprises or hidden fees down the line. In fact, check cashing stores have become well-known as having some of the most generous terms available. Safe, legal, and convenient, payday loans help you get much-needed money you can use for bail bonds and other legal expenses.

Discover All the Options

Along with bail bonds, there are many other ways check cashing stores can assist in your financial goals. Pay bills, reduce high credit card balances, even get instant cash for weddings, anniversaries, parties, and more. In the case of emergencies, securing a cash advance could be a lifesaver.

Take That, Bear

pumphrey

What should you do when a bear attacks? If you’re 78-year-old Sonny Pumphrey, you punch it square in the face.

The North Carolina man (pictured) was relaxing at home when he spotted a mother bear and two cubs approaching his property. Pumphrey says the cubs ran off when they caught sight of him, but mama bear was looking for a fight, and attacked.

“She made a charging, dead run at me,” said Pumphrey. “That sucker was eyeball-to-eyeball.”

Pumphrey says he didn’t want to hurt the animal, but followed his basic instinct to defend himself and punched the bear in the nose. That’s when the animal started biting him. Luckily, Pumphrey was able to walk away from the attack with only minor scrapes and bruises.

Crack Complaint

Law-breakers aren’t especially known for their quick-thinking. Case in point: 62-year-old Dewayne Woods. Police in Evansville, Indiana say Woods visited a local precinct to complain about his crack dealer.

Woods calmly explained that his dealer was harassing him for a $400 unpaid loan from a prior drug transaction. Un-moved by the sob story, Woods was promptly arrested. The search continues for the duo who sold him the drugs.

Centenarian Gets Taco Surprise

taco-party-106-birthday

Life is good when you’re 106-years-old. Just ask Myrtis Jewel Painter. The jovial active senior (pictured) was treated to the party of a lifetime at a Taco Bell restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona.

Organizers say the fast-food eatery is Painter’s favorite, and that she patronizes the restaurant frequently. So, the franchise owner decided to help mark her birthday in style. Painter, who has lived in Phoenix since 1932 (when she was the ripe young age of 20), said she thoroughly enjoyed her special dinner of one taco and one enchilada.

Meanwhile, another centenarian in Florida visits his local Chick-fil-A restaurant every day to score the free meals he was awarded on his 100th birthday.

The Cow Did It

Was it a delinquent barn animal, or a costumed crook? Police in Pine Bluff, Arkansas arrested a suspected shoplifter who was dressed like a cow.

Officials say 27-year-old Ashley Curry (pictured) showed up in full Holstein regalia to swipe several boxes of allergy medication. But the story gets even stranger. Once apprehended, police say Curry told a male officer to “suck a pink cow udder,” and pointed to the corresponding area of her costume.

Curry wouldn’t explain why she chose such a flamboyant heist-pulling outfit. She’s charged with shoplifting and resisting arrest.

Diaper Bandit Caught

Police in New Jersey have nabbed a nappie ne’er-do-well.

For nearly a year, authorities searched for the person who has been littering roadways with dirty diapers. Now, 68-year-old William Friedman is in custody. Last weekend, he was caught in the act of dumping a truck full of the stinky drawers.

Police say Friedman had a few favorite spots to make his nasty deposits, which happened at least three times per week. During interrogation, Friedman copped to the diaper deed and said the soiled garments belonged to his grandson.

He faces various charges, as well as violation of township ordinances.
