Arms raised to cloudy outdoor sky with one wrist handcuffed and one freed

As you’re all aware of by now, bail bond controversies continue to accelerate nationwide. God forbid, they’re as hot as the biblical heatwave plaguing much of the United States. Pre-trial services are grabbing headlines in Colorado thanks to comments from a chief judge. If you’re a bail bond agent in Illinois, that state’s sweeping criminal justice reform is now fully in effect and it’s not good news. Finally, voters, police officials, and st...

National Bail Reform Updates

"Update" typed on paper inside old fashioned Olympia typewriter

If you’re a bail bond agent in Lakewood or elsewhere in Colorado, that odor you smell isn’t imaginary. It’s the real deal, wafting across the country from Illinois, California, and New York. In those states, proponents of cash bail “reform” (i.e.: eventually getting rid of it completely by shoving poorly written legislation down the throats of millions of ill-informed voters) are still at it, conniving, cajoling, employing ham-fisted attemp...

Road sign saying "dead end" and background of cloudy sky

To say there’s exciting stuff going on right now would be an understatement. Even with all the controversies happening in our own backyards, we must stop a moment and re-focus on something near and dear to all of us: Cash bail reform, and its incessant march along the road to nowhere.

Lawmakers in Colorado who insist on eliminating or reducing cash bail along with sweeping criminal justice reform won’t take no for an answer from fellow legi...

Our Denver bail agents have said it for years: the only way that the cash bail system will ever get cleaned up is if there’s compromise amongst all parties and a certain amount of common-sense reform. Of course, what we think is “common-sense bail reform” compared to others is subjective.

In today's guide, our Jefferson County bail agents review two of bail reform's top donors and a few news stories highlighting its danger throughout t...

The Sounds of Silence

If there is one thing we know about cash bail, it is this: Its opponents simply will not stop their march toward eliminating it. Scarily enough, these social class warriors may be cut from the same cloth as Confederate soldiers during the Civil War – thinking they were chosen by God to succeed. We know how well that worked out for them, right? Key happenings in the bail bonding frontier? Silent opposition in Colorado, stirrings in Maine, and co...

'Wrong Way' on large, painted red and white road sign with cloudy sky and palm trees in background

There are many interesting things going on in the cash bail industry, particularly from the standpoint of what kind of strategy the reform camp has decided to employ. They’re nothing if not persistent. One thing we can all agree on is pre-trial reform has morphed into something of a cottage industry as “experts” offer advice and marketing campaigns they’re promoting in hopes of finally killing cash bail as we know it. Including pushing zombie...

Hand throwing dice into air

As Americans, we’re naturally generous to a fault, letting our “better angels” fly to the fore when a minor percentage would rather turn away from someone in need. If that someone in need happens to be requesting help posting cash bail, our advice is to think twice because of the risks involved, as you’ll see below. Other topics to chew on include a nationwide discussion about the constitutionality of cash bail (go figure), and Colorado lawmake...

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...
