Jefferson County Bail Bond Agents Inform the Community about the Differences Between Misdemeanor and Felony Crimes

June 30, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - Bessemer, AL. – Alabama Bail Bonds, a bail bond company in Bessemer, AL explains to their community the differences between misdemeanor crimes and felony crimes, as well as discusses the typical punishments and bail for each one.

All crimes are typically classified as either misdemeanors or felonies. The difference between these two categories has to do with the severity of the crime. For example, if a person commits a high level of burglary, or they kidnap another individual, they will be charged with felony. However, if a person is caught for a lower level crime, such as reckless driving or vandalism, then they will only be charged with misdemeanor. The punishments given for felony crimes tend to be much greater than misdemeanor punishments. While a person may get one year of jail time when charged with a misdemeanor, the punishment for a felony will likely be a long prison sentence and high fines.

There is also a big difference in bail when it comes to the two different crime categories. A misdemeanor bail amount is usually in the thousands, while the amount for a felony can reach into the millions. Paying thousands of dollars for bail is not often a reasonable option, let alone paying millions.

That is what Alabama Bail Bonds is here for. They work hard to bail out individuals as quickly as possible so that the accused persons will have the most time to prepare for their future trial. Alabama Bail Bonds takes pleasure in serving the people of Jefferson County and Shelby County, making sure the bail process runs as smoothly as it can. Unlike some Bessemer bail bond agents, Alabama Bail Bonds does not charge hidden fees. They strive for quick releases, maintain complete confidentiality for their clients and provide refunds to those whose bond cannot be posted.

Counting whales from space pitched as key to saving them

Jul 14, 2020

PORTLAND, Maine — An aquarium and an engineering firm in Massachusetts are partnering on a project to better protect whales by monitoring them from space. New England Aquarium of Boston and Draper of Cambridge say whale conservation needs new, higher-tech solutions to protect whales from extinction.

The effort has an easy to understand name for a project involving complex data and surveillance — the aquarium and firm are calling the project...

US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

Jul 14, 2020

HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Jul 14, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Jul 14, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
