It is, unfortunately, fairly common for people out on probation to be arrested for another offense. This raises a question bail bond agents hear all the time: "Can I post bail if I violate my probation?" As is the case with most things related to the law, the answer is "It depends on the circumstances."

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.

Certainly, if they have the means it’s entirely legal for them to do so, but just because you can...

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...

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 ...

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...

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...
