Hand crossing out 'MYTHS' on chalkboard with 'FACTS' written just above

The quest to undermine the bail bonds system that has worked effectively for a nearly a thousand years has been a multi-pronged effort. If you put this effort under a microscope however, you discover it has three essential components:

  1. The non-profits that need to manufacture issues to champion.
  2. The lobbyists who are paid by the non-profits to strong-arm legislators.
  3. And then there are the minions of the media who know that “controversy...

Bail Reform Reality Check Ahead

In 2017 New Jersey effectively did away with the cash bail bonds system. In its place they adopted a computer program that decided whether defendants should be held for trial or released without bail. In the two years since supporters of the change have scrambled to come up with any statistic they can find (or manufacture) to bolster the fantasy that this change has been good for the Garden State. Most of the arguments in favor of keeping the...

Another Effort at Bail Reform Goes off the Rails

While ordinary taxpayers have been busy going about their business bail “reformers” with powerful backers have brought financial ruin upon the judicial system in New Jersey, pushed through a bill in California (SB 10) that grants so much power to judges that even the ACLU has come out against it and created hundreds of thousands of new fugitives nationwide. To that last point there are many ways that attempts to eliminate the bondsman has cre...

In April Colorado Governor Jared Polis signed into law House Bill 1225 which states that those accused of low level offenses such as petty theft, routine traffic violations and a variety of municipal charges can no longer be held in jail because they are unable to afford to pay a cash bail. In addition, the new law states that those currently being held on such charges because they can’t afford their bail must be immediately released. The Gover...

Bail Algorithms Just Don't Work

The bail algorithm has been touted as the savior of the American justice system. According to its proponents this little understood computer program is able to determine in a nanosecond whether a person will show up in court later if released without bail. So if the computer gives someone the thumbs-up they’re allowed to walk free. If not, then the judge is free to order them held indefinitely. It’s a system many politicians and media types wou...

Bail bond agents work hard to ensure everyone who has a right to be free on bail while awaiting trial can be free. They’re an integral part of the criminal justice system and have been for centuries. While the bail system in America is not perfect few of its imperfections originate with the bondsman who does a difficult job with steadfast determination and little by way of appreciation. But, as if their job wasn’t already hard enough, the reputat...

Comparison shopping is something you do with cars or refrigerators or TVs. Not bail agents. Likewise, the idea of grilling someone before deciding to work with them is a process that’s reserved for contractors. Right? You sit down with the roofer or landscaper and ask some questions to determine whether they’re trustworthy and knowledgeable. You don’t do that with a bondsman. Or do you? The fact is that not all bail bond agents are created equa...

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...
