The voters have spoken. You would think legislators would take notice. But no, and we are not talking about the deadly, conspiracy-driven coup attempt in our nation’s capital. This is about the “No” vote against California’s Proposition 25, and how opponents of cash bail are reorganizing in that state and marshaling anti-cash bail armadas across the country. The message in all of this is any bondsman – in Jefferson County, Arapahoe County, De...

On November 3rd, voters in Los Angeles County joined an overwhelming majority of all California voters in striking down the implementation of Prop. 25, which would have eliminated cash bail bonds in the state. The vote in LA County was as lopsided as it was in the rest of the state, with nearly 55% of county voters choosing to retain cash bail and roughly 45% wanting to abolish it. On the same day, those voters chose George Gascon to be their n...

On November 3rd, George Gascon was elected District Attorney for Los Angeles County. During the campaign leading up to the vote, Gascon stated one of his goals as District Attorney would be to "implement programs to end mass incarceration by working to end money bail”. That sounds very noble and all, but there’s only one problem: the District Attorney is not elected to make or change laws, but to prosecute those who violate them.

Wooden Gavel Against Black Background

The debate about ending the U.S. cash bail system has been going on for years and will rage for the foreseeable future. If you’re a bondsman in Colorado, we are sure you follow what is happening with cash bail legislation in other states (New York, California, New Jersey), but we would like to take a step back for any potential new clients and review information that could be helpful if someone runs afoul of the law and needs our assistance.

One of the questions we get from family, friends, and complete strangers is "When should I call a bondsman." You might think reflexively, "Whenever you need to get out of jail!" But it is not that simple. When someone has been arrested, emotions run high and it is difficult to make the right choice. Everyone, of course, has the right to an attorney and to make a phone call from jail, but who do you call and why?

When to Call a Bondsman?

You can change the judicial system, reform police departments, work to abolish the cash bail system, endanger the lifeblood for thousands of people employed in the bail bonds industry, but one thing remains constant – people commit crimes. Even those who’ve been given second chances (Tiffany Harris, anyone?) sometimes return to a life on the other side of the law.

Does the current cash bail system – the norm in most states across America – ne...

Ball and Chain With No Prisoner Trapped By Excessive Bail

The reason that U.S. jails, including in Jefferson County, Arapahoe County, and Denver County, are overcrowded is well-documented and controversial. Some point to a lack of new facilities, surges in crime, bureaucratic red tape, unfair criminal penalties, the burden of excessive bail on the poor, and so forth. All of this has led to wholesale revisions in America’s cash bail system, causing rifts between those who support eliminating it compl...

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.
