Stack of records on a painted deck, with the top record snapped into two pieces

Bail reform advocates are like a broken record, playing the same old song repeatedly. The tune is predictable. The American judicial system is evil because most states allow the use of cash bail. The cash bail system – a source of income for thousands of law-abiding, hard-working Americans – means a court decides how much money a defendant must pay to be released from jail. But for states that have outlawed the practice, the jukebox has started...

Chess Pieces Checkmate

The big push nationwide for several years has been for state legislatures to pass bail bonds laws to reform the system, with a particular focus on eliminating “cash bail” for minor offenses. In Colorado, it looks like this. Defendants charged with being in a public park after hours (hmm, why would someone be in park after hours?) or walking their dog without a leash are now allowed to stroll out of court without dropping a single dime in the ti...

Slices of swiss cheese on wooden chopping block over black background

Here’s what makes good Swiss Cheese: A medium-hard texture, pale yellow skin, a sweet and nut-like flavor, little holes throughout. But when you make a sandwich, the holes can be problematic – condiments and toppings sometimes penetrate, infusing bread with less-than-appealing flavors and moisture. Think of them as lunchtime “loopholes.” Now, imagine bail bonding reform the same way – characteristics that seemed appealing now fall apart thank...

Bonding for the Better Good

By their very nature, a bail bondsman or bondswoman isn’t shy. No nonsense and straight shooters are good descriptions of our personality types. Now, as for bail recovery agents – aka the Dog the Bounty Hunters of the world – those folks are more outgoing and aggressive! But we’re also united behind the concept that the bail bonding industry provides some measure of good within the criminal justice system, and, by extension, for our great country...

Here’s a quick summary of how bail bonds work: Bail is a sum a defendant, or family member or friend, gives to be released from custody. Bond is a payment from another person — a bondsman, usually — who submits payment on a defendant’s behalf in exchange for release. This is how it’s worked for a long time, but there’s pushback to change the system – to basically empty prisons of the oppressed, innocent, and poor who are victimized.

It ain’t...

Notepad page labelled "Bail Bond Reform" beside cutting board with sliced vegetables

One of the most annoying aspects of the whole bail bonds reform discussion is accusations the industry is a huge cash cow and takes advantage of the poor and innocent! Not true. Maybe collectively the industry is killing it, but the average bondsman? Not so much. According to Bail Yes and Career Bliss, average salaries range from about $25,000 annually to a little over $40,000. Of course, just like any l...

Businessman slipping hundred dollar bills into breastpocket of expensive suit

If you keep up with the news you have no doubt heard and read plenty about the issue of bail reform. Typically you get a one-sided view of the topic that tows the so-called ‘progressive’ line about the many benefits of eliminating bail bonds. That general argument goes something like this: once the ‘travesty’ of bail is eliminated rich and poor, black and white will all finally be equal before the law. Everyone will then benefit because, afte...

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...

Although those in favor of eliminating the centuries-old bail bonds system suffered a much deserved setback last year in the Colorado state senate, that hasn’t stopped them from trying to saddle taxpayers with their backward, short-sighted ideas. In fact, as you read this lobbyists are working the corridors of power in Denver trying to get legislators behind new efforts to eliminate cash bail. In its stead they propose using a deeply flawed com...
