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.

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...

Well-dressed man at podium speaks against bail reform, while onlookers hold signs reading 'what about the victims?'

Pretty much the minute the clock struck midnight on December 31st and the New Year began horror stories have been filtering out of the great state of New York. Not traffic horror stories or horror stories about the price of apartments in the East Village. Horror stories related to the state’s newly enacted bail reform legislation. As predicted by just about everyone with a lick of common sense releasing suspected criminals immediately without a...

The so-called ‘bail reform’ movement of the past decade has hit some significant roadblocks in the past couple of years. It began with Alaska rolling back its bail reform law after it turned the Great White North into the Wild Wild West. Right here in Jefferson County, Arapahoe County and Denver County people had the good sense to recognize the bail reform snake oil salesmen for what they were/are and send them packing.

One of the biggest blows...

If you asked people who they think has been behind the bail bonding reform movement some would probably say former California Governor Jerry Brown. Others might say former President Obama. And still others might say President Trump. Chances are good that 0 would say “The Arnold Foundation”. But while all of those political figures and many more have chimed in on the subject it was indeed the non-profit Arnold Foundation - founded by a former ex...

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...
