 Sacramento Bail Bonds

 

Here is a brief history of the capitol of the great state of California brought to you by Luna Bail Bonds Sacramento, thanks to wikipedia. Sacramento is the capital city of the U.S. state of California and the county seat of Sacramento County. It is located at the confluence of the Sacramento River and the American River in the northern portion of California’s expansive Central Valley. Sacramento was cited by Time magazine as America’s most ethnically and racially integrated city in 2002. Sacramento became a city through the efforts of the Swiss immigrant John Sutter, Sr., his son John Sutter, Jr., and James W. Marshall. Sacramento grew quickly thanks to the protection of Sutter’s Fort, which was established by Sutter in 1839. During the California Gold Rush, Sacramento was a major distribution point, a commercial and agricultural center, and a terminus for wagon trains, stagecoaches, riverboats, the telegraph, the Pony Express, and the First Transcontinental Railroad.

Domestic Violence Court

In July 1997, Domestic Violence Home Court began hearing non-evidentiary matters for all felony and misdemeanor domestic violence cases. The District Attorney, Public Defender and Probation Department received a federal grant for this 18-month project. The goal of the Domestic Violence Court is to establish an integrated approach to crimes of domestic violence in order to provide a comprehensive, consistent, fair and effective criminal justice response to our community. Defendants with domestic violence charges and any other criminal matters appear in Domestic Violence Court for hearings and disposition of all cases. Those pleading guilty or no contest to the domestic violence charges are sentenced and referred to a community batterer’s treatment program. The 52-week program includes counseling and follow-up with assigned probation officers. Defendants must also return to court at least three times for progress reports from the treatment program and probation.

 

Drug Court

In May 1995 the Drug Court Pilot Program began in collaboration with law enforcement and health officials. The goal of the program was to provide treatment and rehabilitation of certain nonviolent criminal drug offenders. The goal focused on increasing awareness of drug abuse/addiction, increasing the ability of participants to live drug-free, access to community resources which support positive lifestyle changes, and reduce drug related crime and recidivism. This court-supervised program consisted of intensive drug treatment and education during a six-month experiment. In December 1995, the court received a federal grant to continue its efforts on a larger scale.

The Program consists of three stages:

  • detoxification and stabilization
  • recovery
  • aftercare

Each stage incorporates an array of support services at phased levels of intensity. These services include urinalysis, acupuncture, group, individual and family counseling, and self-help group meetings. In order to participate in the Drug Court Program, defendants must meet a clearly defined criteria. All defendants must have a history of or evidence of present drug abuse or addiction, their abuse or addiction is at least one motivating factor in the commission of their crime, be at least 18 years old, and must not be on parole. Criteria which will disqualify a defendant currently charged or previously convicted of a crime include the possession or use of a firearm, a crime in which a death, serious bodily injury or intent to cause either occurred, or crimes involving sexual misconduct. The District Attorney’s Office and the Probation Department determine a defendant’s eligibility. The treatment phase is provided by the Department of Health and Human Services.

 

Eligible defendants enter a plea, sign a contract accepting admittance to the program, and make regularly scheduled court appearances before Judge Bakarich. These status hearings are for the purpose of promoting the treatment and rehabilitation of the defendant. A probation officer also works very closely with the defendant by monitoring program compliance and provides progress reports to Judge Bakarich. If a defendant does not or cannot comply with requirements of the treatment program plan and discontinue the use of drugs, participation in the program is terminated. The defendant is returned to custody and criminal proceedings are resumed. Defendants who establish a consistent pattern of clean drug tests, employment or enrollment in vocational or educational programs, and other proof of a stabilized lifestyle, graduate from the program. All criminal charges are dismissed.

Sacramento County Public Defender

Paulino G. Durán

I hope your visit to this site enhances your understanding and appreciation of the job performed by the men and women of the Office of the Public Defender. In a time when our society seeks heroes, you do not have to look far to see Public Defenders vigorously testing and fighting for the rights bestowed upon us all by the founders of this great nation through the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Public Defenders ensure that the principles expressed in these great documents work daily for the benefit of all. There is no such thing as “criminals’ rights;” each and every person within the United States, no matter what their legal status, is entitled to these rights and the protections they afford.

 

We must all be mindful of and resist attempts to dilute, minimize or undo those rights and privileges to which we are entitled and for which so many have fought and given their lives. A great balancing act is at the core of what occurs every day in our criminal justice system. All the parties engaged in this daily activity (law enforcement, judges, prosecutors and defense attorneys) play an essential role in upholding our Constitution and testing its vitality. This is the eternal battle mapped out by the equal but separate branches of government created by the Constitution, e.g., Executive, Judicial and Legislative. May you personally never need the services of the Office of the Public Defender but if you do, be assured that you will receive quality legal representation. Also, be proud of the fact that employees within this law firm are insuring that the law is upheld in fact, principle and spirit. The Office of the Public Defender was established in the County of Sacramento in 1948. We provide quality legal representation and/or advice to any individual financially unable to employ counsel in adult criminal, juvenile delinquency, mental conservatorship, appropriate family law, and probate cases. Providing the defense of approximately 35,000 cases, our staff consists of approximately 140 employees, organized in divisions as depicted in our Organizational Chart.

 

Sacramento County Attorneys

 

We have over 90 attorneys who exclusively practice criminal law and related matters. The office recruits and hires candidates with a strong record of academic achievement. Attorneys gain trial experience initially at the misdemeanor level and progress through felonies of increasing difficulty. Due to the seriousness of the cases our office defends, our attorneys have significantly more trial experience than most private practitioners. Attorneys “staff” their cases with experienced senior attorneys and have quality in-house training that is certified by the State Bar.
 

Bail Bondsman in Sacramento County

 

A strong support staff assists fully in the legal defense. Criminal investigators locate and interview witnesses, as well as prepare thorough reports. The most current technological tools are generally available. The legal research assistants (law students) assist in the various divisions and interview and represent clients, under the guidance of a senior attorney. Others assist in legal research work. Our clerical staff processes our services and organizes our case files, assist in case document preparation, and answer a myriad of inquiries. Our Administrative Staff keeps the “business” of the office running smoothly.
 

How Cases Are Defended Sacramento County

 

The goal in the defense of all cases is to provide the most vigorous advocacy to each individual client under the law in the most economically efficient manner. Primarily, our office works horizontally. After arraignment, a lead attorney will make an initial assessment of the case and interview the client. A goal and strategy plan for each case is developed. The case will be “staffed” by a senior attorney to insure any resolution of a case at an early stage is appropriate. If the case does not resolve, it is assigned to a trial attorney who will represent the client for the duration of the case. Each case receives careful assessment by staff members who are well versed in the practice and procedures of criminal law and the local criminal justice system.
