sexual assault awareness month

Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)

Did you know the month of April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM)? At Central Florida Bonding we want to educate our followers on this important initiative.

Over the years we have seen hundreds of cases involving sexual assault and domestic violence.

Sexual assault can encompass many different things including:

•Rape
•Sexual violence
•Sexual harassment
•Molestation
•Human Trafficking
•Unwanted sexual contact
•Incest
•Fondling
•Attempted rape

Thanks to The National Sexual Violence Resource Center, their efforts focus on coordinating the national Sexual Assault Awareness Campaign. In the beginning, the emphasis was on awareness. The focus was on what sexual assault consists of and how to stop it along with how to change behaviors. The cornerstone for the campaign focuses on two primary goals: awareness and prevention. Throughout the years, the campaign has grown to include expanding the message to parents, religious leaders, coaches, and others. The focus for 2021 is on building safe online spaces. Most people (mature adults and our youth) are online, and many have access through their portable device, phone or tablet.

This open field of online access has been a haven for crooks to prey on innocent victims. Unfortunately, sexual assault and rape are under reported. Around 1 in 5 women in the U.S. have experienced rape or an attempted rape. Most of these sexual assault attempts take place at or near the victim’s home (often by someone they know). We encourage people to call the RAINN hotline if they need help. That number is 1-800-656-4673 or visit online at https://www.rainn.org/resources for more resources. We encourage our followers to stay vigilant and educate others as much as possible about sexual assault and how to be safe. We hope parents will educate their children and extended family members. Sexual assault is not ok, and helpful resources are available for both the victims and the defendants.

The Impact of Coronavirus on the Incarcerated

The Coronavirus has reorganized our lives quite a bit, but it has also had an impact on the court system. From the moment a person is incarcerated there are huge risks for both the arresting officers, the defendant, and the staff of the county jail.  Exposure to Coronavirus can reek havoc on the judicial system.  Here are some of the impacts:

Delayed Court Cases

Jails or prisons are not closed because of coronavirus outbreak, but it has affected how the court is currently being conducted. Stay at home orders are being put in place by local officials. This decision to stay at home impacts judges, attorneys and other professionals. In this event court cases may be postponed, or placed on an indefinite hold, resulting in delays in defendants being released.

Forced to Withstand Health Conditions

Those currently jailed or recently arrested have little choice in the conditions of the jail or how it’s maintained. Incarcerated individuals may be unable to receive proper care for medical conditions. While the coronavirus spreads country wide outside the jails, it can also quickly spread inside. Inmates could be exhibiting symptoms of the coronavirus, but there is little space for the facility to relocate and properly care for those potentially infected.  Without access to Personal Protection Equipment, or PPE, inmates also risk further spread. If you are arrested for a crime, it’s important to be released quickly.  That’s why having access to Central Florida Bonding is important! Be sure to save our number (407) 841-3646 in your phone.

Too Close for Comfort

Jail cells are too close for comfort and provides little opportunity to properly socially distance. Which invites plenty of opportunity to increase the spread of coronavirus. The nature of holding cells also allow for employees, visitors and those incarcerated to both come and go as necessary. This leaves inmates more exposed to the virus.

In Orlando, Florida, there was a recommendation to allow low-level nonviolent defendants, who have less than 6 months remaining on their sentence, to be released.  This is in an effort to help slow the spread of coronavirus. There has been a lot of controversy surrounding this recommendation. Great efforts are made by the counties to rotate employees more often. Other steps being taken are reducing the crowding in prisons and being more purposeful and consistent in cleaning public spaces. Despite the many efforts implemented to slow the spread of the virus behind bars the numbers continue to surge with social distancing being almost impossible.

If you find yourself or a loved one in a situation where a bail bond is necessary, consider contacting a bail bond agency quickly. Central Florida Bonding is available 24-7 to begin the process of being bonded out of jail. Do not remain behind bars longer than you should. Call Central Florida Bonding at (407) 841-3646 or visit our website to secure your freedom immediately! We work fast to help Orlando inmates get out of jail so they can get back to taking care of themselves and their loved ones on the outside.

Central Florida Bonding Warns About Child Neglect

While the world continues to climb out of COVID-19 pandemic abuse and neglect continue and for some it’s on the rise.

What is the definition of neglect?

The very definition of neglect is “a type of maltreatment that refers to the failure by the caregiver to provide needed, age-appropriate care although financially able to do so.”

There are four types of child neglect:

  • Physical neglect – This is the most common type of neglect. For example, when a child is not provided basic necessities such as food, clothing, and shelter. Another example is when young children are left alone unsupervised.
  • Emotional neglect – This is where a child is isolated, rejected, ignored, or even threatened. A child is not provided with the emotional support that they require.
  • Educational neglect – This is where a child is denied an education by the parents/caregivers not bringing the children to school, not enrolling them in school, or not homeschooling them.
  • Medical neglect – This is where a child is denied healthcare by his/her parents or caregivers even though the parents and/or caregivers can afford it.

What is the charge when arrested for child neglect?

Neglect of a child as a criminal offense is a felony. A person facing child neglect charges, could face jail time, fines, probation, or lose their parental rights to the child.
