Colorado Felony Crimes

Wooden Gavel Against Black Background

The debate about ending the U.S. cash bail system has been going on for years and will rage for the foreseeable future. If you’re a bondsman in Colorado, we are sure you follow what is happening with cash bail legislation in other states (New York, California, New Jersey), but we would like to take a step back for any potential new clients and review information that could be helpful if someone runs afoul of the law and needs our assistance.

One of the questions we get from family, friends, and complete strangers is "When should I call a bondsman." You might think reflexively, "Whenever you need to get out of jail!" But it is not that simple. When someone has been arrested, emotions run high and it is difficult to make the right choice. Everyone, of course, has the right to an attorney and to make a phone call from jail, but who do you call and why?

You can change the judicial system, reform police departments, work to abolish the cash bail system, endanger the lifeblood for thousands of people employed in the bail bonds industry, but one thing remains constant – people commit crimes. Even those who’ve been given second chances (Tiffany Harris, anyone?) sometimes return to a life on the other side of the law.

Does the current cash bail system – the norm in most states across America – ne...

Scale weighing globe and heavier cash pile

The reason that U.S. jails are overcrowded is well-documented and controversial. Some point to a lack of new facilities, surges in crime, bureaucratic red tape, unfair criminal penalties, the burden of excessive bail on the poor, and so forth. All of this has led to wholesale revisions in America’s cash bail system, causing rifts between those who support eliminating it completely, and those who support a mo...

More and more people across the country are learning the hard way that if you remove accountability from the criminal justice system by ending bail bonds things will go off the rails. Without the possibility of losing bail money, and secure in the knowledge that they will be quickly released after being arrested, criminals will do what criminals do: commit crimes.

Ask any of the highly-paid professional anti-bail lobbyists lurking in the halls of the Colorado state house what’s wrong with the current cash bail bonds system and you will invariably get the answer that it’s a racist system that punishes minorities. Irony of ironies then, that a July study conducted by the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) discovered that the risk assessment algorithm promoted by anti-bail zealots and used by a number of C...

Anytime you bail out a friend or loved one you’re taking a chance. If the accused heads for the hills after being released and is never heard from again you are going to lose and lose big. If you paid cash instead of using a bondsman that cash will be forfeited. If you posted a property bond the court may foreclose on your house and sell it to get the bail amount, and if you enlisted the help of a bail bonds agent they are going to come knockin...

When a person has been arrested there’s a lot going through their mind and it can sometimes be difficult to take a step back, take a breath and make sound decisions. One mistake a lot of people who have been arrested in Denver County, Golden, and elsewhere in Colorado make is deciding to act as their own bail bond agent by paying their own bail. Certainly, if they have the means it’s entirely legal for them to do so, but just because you can...
