Illinois Voters Have Spoken

The controversy surrounding cash bail reform won't die down anytime soon. And here's why. The governor of Illinois just signed a bill into law that ends cash bail in that state, examples of domestic violence horror stories related to bail are too prevalent to ignore, and the President of the United States is working toward enacting a campaign pledge to end cash bail nationwide and stop criminalizing poverty.

The next few years should be very in...

Sit tight, readers - things are about to get real. Even with the state of the country, the idea of cash bail reform is like Michael Myers in the Halloween movie franchise – it just won’t die and is still grabbing headlines. Bills are brewing in Michigan to make changes to that state’s criminal justice system, lawmakers in California refuse to believe the defeat of Proposition 25 last year, and Utah res...

Things are definitely heating up on the cash bail front in Colorado. All throughout Jefferson County, Arapahoe County, Denver County, and greater Denver, bail bonding professionals are talking about what Democratic Governor Jared Polis has up his sleeve for the new legislative session.

Big news items to be aware of include a boost in homicides last year in Denver, perhaps driven by violent defendants being released due to Covid-19 preca...

As a bail bondsman in Jefferson County, Arapahoe County, or Denver County, you belong to a small brotherhood of professionals in a unique industry. How do we find new clients? Normal marketing does not work the way it does for other businesses. The industry is in flux with the movement to end cash bail, and COVID-19 has further endangered our livelihoods. Regular marketing options like TV, radio, and print do not draw in enough clients to p...

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 v...

On November 3rd, 2020, 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 pro...

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.
