In 2019, New York State instituted what was hailed by its supporters as a landmark piece of bail reform legislation. No longer would justice be undermined by the bail bond agent. No longer would decent, upstanding citizens be victimized by a bail system intent on punishing people for being poor. Now, everyone but the most violent offenders (and even some of them) would be released on their own recognizance so t...

During the 1990s and the early 2000s, Denver was something of a peaceful oasis at the base of the Rocky Mountains. Not anymore. Since 2014 the total number of murders, rapes, aggravated assaults, and car thefts has increased by more than 50% and the explosion in crime shows no signs of abating. In 2021 alone, 96 people were murdered in Denver - the highest homicide rate since 1981.

The ripple effects fro...


Yellow police tape labelled 'crime scene do not cross' marking outdoor area closed for police investigation

Bail reform has been a spectacular success, if skyrocketing homicides, aggravated assaults, sexual assaults and robberies are how you measure success. In Colorado, where the bail bonding company had been part of the criminal justice landscape since the 19th century, reforms have led to an outrageous spike in crime.

If you are skeptical about that let's look at some recent crime statistics issued by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation:

What Is The Bailo Project?

Most people would agree that someone who poses no danger to the public should not be held in jail indefinitely just because they cannot afford to post bail. If the goal of The Bail Project was simply to identify such individuals and help them gain their freedom then one might say it was a noble organization with a noble cause. But affordable bail bonds are not the goal of The Bail Project.

In December of 2020, M...

There are few issues more contentious than that of bail reform. As recently as 2019 there was still considerable momentum to do away with cash bail and those behind the movement were able to stand in front of cameras and, with a more-or-less straight face, declare that 24-hour bail bonds somehow made us all less safe.

And then 2020 happened.

The death of several suspects during encounters with police provided the excuse for months of lo...

In 2021, a career criminal ran down revelers gathered for an annual Waukesha, Wisconsin Christmas parade, killing six and injuring more than 60. This should have been a national wake-up call regarding the total failure of bail reform.

The alleged driver in that incident had a lengthy rap sheet, (which included being a registered sex offender with an outstanding arrest warrant from Nevada), and had been arrest...

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...

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...

Although those in favor of eliminating the centuries-old bail bonds system suffered a much deserved setback last year in the Colorado state senate, that hasn’t stopped them from trying to saddle taxpayers with their backward, short-sighted ideas. In fact, as you read this lobbyists are working the corridors of power in Denver trying to get legislators behind new efforts to eliminate cash bail. In its stead they propose using a deeply flawed com...
