An End to CPAT?

Animated Giant Gavel and Male and Female Lawyer Pretrial

Controversy and indecision regarding the future of the cash bail system is never-ending. Some state lawmakers have done away with it altogether. Some jurisdictions put their faith in electronic tethers for post-release monitoring or computer algorithms for pretrial assessment. And some have done nothing, continuing to rely on pretrial services programs, own recognizance rulings, and cash bail bonding for defendants awaiting their next court d...

'Fraud Alert' Signs Warn of Common Cash Bail Bonding Scams

Picture this - you’re awoken from a deep sleep at 3:00 AM to repeated calls from an unknown number. Still groggy, you fumble to the “answer” button and are met with distressing news - someone you love has committed a crime and they’re waiting behind bars for your help. Whether it’s a sobbing relative or authoritative stranger on the other end, this situation is more than enough to make your barely-awake mind start reeling.

Even with the COVID-19 pandemic, bail bonds reform laws are still an important storyline to follow. Lawlessness breeds crime, crime of the sort making its way across the country right now breeds anger, and anger breeds action which defies logic. Part of logic-defying action is how reform supporters believed, without evidence, that no-bail laws would be a cure-all for a criminal justice system desperate for reform. If you’re a bail bondsman, you...

Coronavirus spelled out in tile letters against a black background

Bail bonding reform laws across the country were already controversial as supporters trumpeted releasing defendants with little or no cash bail, but now that we’re in the midst of a global pandemic thanks to COVID-19, no-bail laws are under even more scrutiny. Over-crowded jails and prisons have always been a flashpoint, but now that COVID-19 is spreading in the incarcerated, there’s urgency among reform supporters to accelerate prisoner releas...

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...

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...
