Road sign with arrows pointing in opposite directions toward 'Right Direction' and 'Wrong Direction'

Being arrested can be scary and disorienting. Fortunately, the American system of justice allows individuals accused of a crime to be released on bail while they await their day in court.

At Tayler Made Bail Bonds, we work with all types of people from all walks of life. But regardless of their bac...

Guns and Bail

Gun and gravel

When a person is arrested for a crime they are brought to the local jail and processed. After processing they are often given the opportunity to post bail without ever seeing a judge or magistrate. All jails in Jefferson County, Arapahoe County and Denver County have bail schedules that state the bail amount due for different offences (bail for a DUI for example is typically $5,000). The accused is given the option of paying the full amount o...

Appeal Bond

Most people are aware of the constitutional right to bail but are often a bit fuzzy on the specifics. The concept of bail is nearly a thousand years old and has changed little over the centuries. Its primary purpose is to ensure that a person accused of a crime - who is after all presumed innocent - is not forced to sit in jail while awaiting trial as if she were guilty. It also provides an incentive for the accused to show up in court at the a...

New Jersey Bail Reform

With so-called bail bonds reform a hot topic in Colorado these days it’s important that taxpayers, the ones who will actually pay the price for bail reform failure, keep in mind the sad case of New Jersey. Oftentimes wolves come dressed in sheep’s clothing and that was certainly the case in 2014. That year bail reform was put to New Jersey voters in the form of a ballot question that seemed like a straightforward proposal that would allow the s...

Why Colorado Needs Bail

Welcome to Colorado

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...

Monopoly Get Out of Jail Free Card

There has been a lot of talk recently about bail reform with a particular focus on something called “risk assessment algorithms”. The driving force behind the discussion is a desire by some on the left to circumvent the constitutional right to bail. According to them the constitution is irrelevant and computer programmers are better able to determine whether someone should be released pending trial than judges and prosecutors. Bail agents in pa...

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...
