There's no good time to get arrested - but some circumstances can feel much less convenient than others. If you're arrested on a Friday night, or with a long-awaited vacation just around the corner, you're almost certainly wondering what your rights are in the shortterm or how long it'll take to put this process behind you. Until they’ve had their day in court, a person who has been arrested has done nothing wrong as far as the law is concerned...

Police in the US made more than 13,000,000 arrests last year. Many of those arrests were for infractions that required a person to be bailed out unless they wanted to spend perhaps months in jail while awaiting their day in court. Most people are familiar with the concept of bail although many harbor misconceptions and questions about how it actually works - or the risks you face when you legally agree to a...

Unlike many things to do with the justice system the bail bonds process is actually pretty straightforward. Should a person run afoul of the law for whatever reason and wind up in jail, they contact a bondsman who, after examining the facts, posts a bond that allows the accused to return home while awaiting their day in court. The bail agent keeps an amount equal to a percentage of the bail as a fee for their services and when the legal proce...

Questions

While just about every American adult has heard about bail it’s still a widely misunderstood part of the criminal justice system. Many people think that if someone is arrested they are read their Miranda rights, given a phone call and someone shows up at the jail with cash to bail them out. Actually, most people are never read their Miranda rights (because they only apply if the police are planning to interrogate someone), many are never given...

Judge in old-fashioned wig gripping bible and gavel leans forward with menacing expression

Being released on bond is not as simple as “Okay, you can go now. See you in court!” There are almost always conditions attached to a person’s release. Sometimes intentionally and sometimes unintentionally people violate those release terms and when they do their bail is revoked and the process of bond forfeiture set in motion. But is bond forfeiture inevitable if a person violates the terms of their release? Or are there ways to stop the proce...

Can a Bondsman Refuse to Help?

A lot of people are under the impression that when you contact a bail bonding agent in an effort to get your friend or loved one released from jail that they have to help. But is this true? Is the bail agent compelled to assist everyone that calls or walks through his door? Or does he take things on a case by case basis?

To bring some clarity to the issue we’re going to look at the subject of bail, the factors that go into determining the amount of bail the court demands, and the factors that weigh on the decis...

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...
