Popular culture has always had an outsized influence on how people perceive the world around them. That's particularly true when it comes to TV shows and movies like Perry Mason, Law & Order or Dirty Harry. In the service of drama, these movies and TV shows promote a version of the justice system that is at best marginally accurate. It's not that they try to intentionally deceive anyone, it's just that Hollywood's version of the bail bond agent...

In an effort to clarify things for you, the team here a...

Over the course of our many years providing the people of Jefferson County and Arapahoe County with affordable bail bonds, we've heard a lot of strange things and fielded a lot of strange questions. One of those questions goes like this: "Should I turn down bail and just stay in jail until my court date?" You would be surprised how often we hear that. But while it might seem like a perfectly logical question to some, it's usually one that c...

Until they suddenly find themselves in need of a bail bond agent most people have no idea of how bail works or how to employ it to gain the freedom of their loved one. They have been aware of it most of their lives, heard the term bandied about countless times during TV police shows and may even know someone who was once bailed out, but that’s about as far as their experience and knowledge of the subject goes. So when the need arises to contact...

Although it has come under attack by some shortsighted groups and individuals in recent years, bail endures as the best way of ensuring the accused lives up to their responsibility to appear in court to face charges against them. In Colorado people arrested in Denver County, Jefferson County and elsewhere typically work with a bail bond agent who posts a bond to obtain their release.

If all goes well during the ensuing trial and the defen...

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...
