Black leather wallet with several credit cards in pockets in outstretched hand

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...

Let's say you or a loved one has been arrested for something that requires a fairly large amount of bail. But neither you nor your family members have enough cash to give the bail bond agent in Denver County for the surety bond (typically 10% of the full bail amount). What are you supposed to do? Fortunately, most bonding companies will accept collateral in lieu of cash. But what sort of assets can be used for bail? Below we'll look at seven...

Person in green T-shirt with head on wooden desk behind six stacked textbooks

When it was first proposed taxpayers were told bail reform would provide a long-overdue fix for the central problem with the bail system. That being that people who could not afford to work with a bail bond agent sometimes sat in jail for prolonged periods of time while others accused of the same crime walked free simply because they could afford bail.

Most people would agree fixing that discrepancy would be a worthwhile undertaking. Bail r...

Stop sign in sunlight on city block

In 2021, the California Supreme Court ruled that holding defendants solely because they could not afford to pay bail was unconstitutional. That ruling came after a nearly decade-long effort by bail opponents to put an end to the cash bail system in California. But it only represented a partial victory for them because it kept the bail system in place for people who could afford to pay. As a result, the anti-bail movement’s ultimate target, the...

Yellow and blue magnet letters spelling 'truth' on flat layer of burlap cloth

For over a decade concerned public officials, law enforcement agencies and others have been warning about the slow-motion disaster known as "bail reform." For just as long their concerns and warnings have been ignored by a mainstream media that has collectively drank the bail reform Kool Aid and dismissed concerns about a surge in “failure to appear” cases and crime waves as not being supported by the “facts” or worse, as outright racism. Yet...

Golden Gate Bridge and surrounding water in San Fransisco, California

In 2019 voters in San Francisco narrowly elected one Chesa Boudin as their new district attorney. Boudin was an anti-bonding company zealot who had been a public defender but had zero experience when it came to prosecuting criminals. Nonetheless, he was now the chief law enforcement official in the City by the Bay.

Boudin, however, was not totally unfamiliar with the workings of the judicial system. His parents had been members of the Weather...

Chicago Theater, skyscrapers and traffic in downtown Chicago, Illinois on cloudy day

Chicago has a well-earned reputation for being the murder capital of the US. Last year alone some 800 individuals were murdered in Chicago, nearly double the number murdered in New York City, a city more than three times as large. Those 800 murders last year represent a significant uptick from previous years and just happen to coincide with Illinois eliminating cash bail and essentially outlawing the bail bond agent at the start of 2021.

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...

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? Nothing is Guaranteed There is no guarantee that you’ll get the result you want when you ask a bail agent in Jefferson ...

If you have ever spent time watching police dramas on television (think, “Law&Order”) you have no doubt heard the term “bail hearing” bandied about by the various characters. What’s never really clear in these fictional representations of the justice system is exactly what a bail hearing is, who is compelled to attend a bail hearing and what role the bail bond agent plays in all of this.
