Some examples of violent and/or property crimes seen in Pasadena:
- Motor vehicle theft
- Armed Robbery
- Aggravated Assault
Motor Vehicle Theft
Depending on the specifics of the offense and the offender, the punishment for a motor vehicle theft offense can range from a fine of up to $500 to life in prison. However, the majority of motor vehicle thefts will result in a prison sentence of 180 days to ten years and a fine of up to $10,000.
Even though it’s not common, an arson offense can result in a first-degree felony penalty if it results in a death or significant injury. The accused may be prosecuted with murder and given a life sentence in prison if there was a deliberate attempt to kill. A conviction for first-degree felony arson carries a sentence of 5 to 99 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Arson may be charged as a second degree felony if it was meant to cause more than just property damage. If a house or a house of worship was harmed, it would be considered a first-degree felony with harsher punishments.
Aggravated assault is a second-degree felony, except for the following circumstances in which it becomes a first-degree felony:
- The offender uses a deadly weapon in committing the assault and causes serious bodily injury to the victim and the victim is a family or household member, or someone the offender is or has dated or had an intimate relationship with, qualifying the offense as a domestic assault.
- The aggravated assault is committed by a public servant, such as a state worker or city counselor acting in his official capacity.
- The victim is a person the offender knows to be a public servant engaged in the performance of his duties or the assault is committed in retaliation for the public servant performing his duties.
- The aggravated assault is committed in retaliation against a witness, informant or a person who reported a crime.
- The victim is a person the offender knows to be a security officer engaged in performing his duties, or
- The offender shoots a firearm from a motor vehicle at a house, building or motor vehicle with reckless disregard for whether the house, building or motor vehicle is occupied and causes serious bodily injury to the victim.

We’re all familiar with the term “bail,” and have either seen or read about various crimes where the culprit is released from jail via bail, or is arrested with a posted bond amount (which, depending on the nature of the crime, can be quite hefty). But what exactly is bail, and why are most defendants better off utilizing a bond? There are a plethora of reasons why, and many of them have to do with ensuring they keep their jobs, kids, homes, and loved ones.
Unfortunately, many individuals who are arrested and detained cannot afford bail–therefore they remain in jail, often resulting in lost jobs, homes, and even custodies of children and pets. The consequences of not affording bail can be life-changing and virtually impossible to recover from, depending on the situation and the crime. Thankfully, bail bonds exist–and companies like ABC Bail Bonds, which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and approves all bonds–can guarantee a prompt release from jail, at any time of day or night, so those life-changing consequences do not have to happen to anyone.
We understand that bonds are usually large sums of money, which is not always readily available out of the defendant’s pocket; that is why we are ready to help pay what is needed in order for them to be released, so they can return to their lives–however, in order to utilize a bond, the defendant must show up to court and do what is legally expected of them. Once that has been complete, they are off the hook and can completely return to their normal lives.
