Things you need to know about domestic violence charges

Published

on

When one partner attempts to take control over the other partner living with him or her by intending to or causing harm, it becomes a case of domestic violence or abuse. In such cases, the person in question has to go to jail. That can be a puzzling experience for anyone. The person can go home only on bail. If he or she is wealthy, paying bond may not seem difficult. Otherwise, they would need a bail bonds company to rescue them from this situation.

Domestic abuse can amount to felony or misdemeanor charges based on the nature of the violence. Vandalism, threats, and domestic battery are some of the examples of felonies. If your loved one is behind the bar on a felony charge, his or her release from jail can be delayed due to a higher bail amount. And they can be taken home only with the help of an expert bail bonds company.

Points to remember when hiring a bail bonds company for domestic violence case

Finding a good agency can be a tiring task, but if you do it right, you will emerge triumphant in your endeavor. Here are some tips that can come in handy in your search.

  • Look for a local company that is easy to access and from where the bond representatives can visit jail with ease.
  • Get details of the customer reviews and ratings about the company services.
  • Analyze the cost you may have to bear for their services. Usually, these companies charge 10% of the bail amount as their fees.

Once you finalize the company and your loved one comes out of jail, you would need to ensure that he or she abides by the court’s restraining orders.

What are these restraining orders?

It is also known as the protection order. When the person is released from jail, and the case has not been concluded yet, he or she has to obey the restraining laws. For example, the suspect may not be allowed to meet the victim or can be asked to maintain distance from him or her. It’s very common in domestic abuse.

Failing to follow restraining orders can prove costly for the defendant. The court can dismiss the bail, and the additional charges for the violation of protection order can be levied. If that happens, the person can land in jail once again. For release, he or she may have to pay the revised bail amount. However, repeat instances of this nature can even lead to no bail.

Hence, to ensure that your friend or family member doesn’t get trapped in such conditions, take help of a qualified bail bonds agency. In Dayton, Ohio, you will get many options. However, if you are in a hurry and don’t have much time to research about them, consider going to Castle Bail Bonds in Dayton Ohio once. They are trusted as well as licensed in this field. For an appointment with them, you can contact their customer service team.

Five Feared Killed In Fresh Kaduna Attack

Published

on

A Sunday evening attack by gunmen on Unguwan Magaj community in Kauru Local Council of Kaduna State may have left four indigenes dead and 36 homes torched.
But the bravery of the youths reportedly led to the death of one of the attackers and confiscation of his handset.
Useful information was said to have been retrieved from the phone that had allegedly been handed over to the police.
In a statement yesterday, the National Public Relations Officer of the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU), Luka Biniyat, said: “The invaders, who came by 6:45 pm yesterday (Sunday) from behind the hills that serve as the boundary of Kaduna State and Ganawuri, Plateau State, were numbered over a 100.
“They attacked from four flanks, causing pandemonium among unsuspecting villagers as the youths tried to fend them off.”
He continued: “After about 30 minutes of violence, the following were unfortunately killed: Mrs Hanatu Joseph, 58, mother of five children; Mrs Sarah Sunday, 40, she left behind her husband and six children.
“The others are: Mrs Dije Sajay, 55, married with six children; and Mr Sunday David, 47, married with seven children. He was a retrenched civil servant.”
He noted: “The attackers targeted food stores and bans of grains, making sure they burnt as much as they could. This is to ostensibly cause starvation, especially under this lockdown from the Coronavirus.
“Police and soldiers came into Unguwan Magaji only this morning (yesterday) around 9 am and saw the corpse of the dead herdsman, which they later took away.”
Besides, Biniyat said: “Early this month yesterday, Ibrahim Atiga, 42, a native of Unguwan Magaji, was killed by herdsmen on his way to the farm. He has since been buried.”

I’ll Give Special Attention To Respect For Citizens’ Fundamental Rights – CP …Citizens Set Agenda For Him

Published

on

The new Rivers State  Commissioner of Police, Mr Joseph Mukan has said that he would give special  attention to  respect for citizens’ fundamental human rights in the state.
This was contained in a statement issued by the  Public Relations Officer of the Rivers State Police  Command, DSP Nnamdi Omoni and made available to newsmen last Monday in Port Harcourt .
The statement said that Mr Mukan would rekindle the people’s confidence in the police and as well reposition the command for efficiency and productivity.
According to the statement, the new Police Commissioner would be expected to work with humility and integrity as part of efforts to command a better police force in the state.
It further revealed that the Rivers police boss has an impeccable track record in crime fighting, thus the trust to make good his promises.
The Rivers State Commissioner of Police, however, through the statement, solicited for cooperation in terms of information sharing from the people in order to help the command to serve them better.
Meanwhile, some members of the public have called on the new Police Commissioner to remain neutral and face his primary assignment of policing.
A Port Harcourt-Based lawyer, Emperor Nnaoma, who spoke in an interview with The Tide , yesterday, said Mr Mukan must pay priority attention to his core mandate of crime fighting, if he wants to succeed in the state.
Nnaoma, recalled that previous Commissioners of Police who went outside their major task never ended well in the state.
In his view, the Eze Oha Evo III of Evo Kingdom, King Leslie N Eke, said the Commissioner should make out time to check the activities of some of his men who allow themselves into chieftaincy issues in the communities.
The Eze Gbakagbaka/Nyerisi Eli Woji, said that such interference has divided the attention of some police officers in the state as they are always tempted to dance to the tune of their pay masters.
