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?

Let’s say you’ve been arrested for a fairly serious crime that, of course, you did not commit. You’re taken to jail and charged and then after some time you’re given an opportunity to contact a lawyer. You ask the lawyer to contact your mother and ask her to arrange bail for you through a bondsman. Being your mother, she obliges. But it’s no easy thing for her to do. She’s not rich and your father has been having some health problems that have...

Money gone

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...

Searching for bond jumper

The bondsman is often confused with the bounty hunter but while they sometimes find themselves working together they are in fact two distinctly different professions. The bail bonds agent helps those who have been incarcerated and charged with a crime earn their freedom while they are awaiting trial. While the bounty hunter is employed by the bail agent in the event that one of his clients decides to disappear while out on bail.

The concept of bail bonds goes back nearly a thousand years in English common law and migrated to the United States during the colonial period. It was such a key feature of American justice at the time of the nation’s founding that it got its own mention in the Bill of Rights where the 8th Amendment states flatly that “Excessive bail shall not be required”. (The founders wanted to prevent the practice of h...

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.
