Domestic Violence and DUI Charges in Costa Mesa
Our agent received a call from a distressed family member on Friday night regarding an incident with her daughter and son-in-law who are located in Costa Mesa.
The daughter was arrested for a Domestic Battery PC 243(e)(1) charge committed against her husband and booked into the Costa Mesa Police Department’s holding facility with a $10,000 bail.
In any situation where the police are called out for a domestic violence or domestic battery charge the police will arrest one of the participants, even if there are no signs of physical injury.
In the case of this couple, it was the woman who had called the police after a dispute between her and her husband, during which she hit him more than once. Alcohol was involved as well.
The family was deeply alarmed by the news that their daughter had been arrested, and also quite confused at the circumstances leading to their daughter’s arrest. Nonetheless, their main concern was in getting their daughter out of jail before she was transferred over to the main holding facility in Santa Ana.
We called the Costa Mesa Jail to let them know that we’d be bailing out the woman, and they agreed to hold onto her for another hour. We hurried to the jail and were there in a few minutes to meet with the family and start on the paperwork.
The mom and dad of the woman were very cooperative and helped us to get through the paperwork as soon as possible. They were full of nerves throughout the situation, but our agent helped calm them down by answering their questions and keeping them up to date with what was happening inside the jail.
The husband also showed up and provided us with some additional information that we needed. He had been advised by the Costa Mesa Police to take an uber to the police station, as he had been drinking and a DUI would’ve been an additional $10,000 bail.
After about 20 minutes, we arrived at the jail and there the Costa Mesa Police came upstairs to meet our bondsman and look at his paperwork. They accepted the bond without issue and took the bond downstairs to be processed.
The family was informed of the good news. About 20 minutes later, the daughter was released from custody and into the arms of her family.
As the paperwork had been mostly completed by that point, all that remained for the daughter was to be informed of her upcoming court date and to sign the bail bond contact agreeing to show up in court.
After that had been completed, we all shook hands and went our separate ways. Domestic violence charges are some of the more unfortunate charges that we have to bail people out for since often times it’s the person who called the police who ends up getting arrested.
We do our best to educate people about bail bond laws so that they can avoid getting arrested needlessly, which is one of the reasons why we started this blog.
We hope this information will help you stay out of trouble, and if you find yourself in need of a bail bond you can count on us to help you out in your time of need.
