"The People at A Alpha, helped me the most, I tried to get a bond from several online ads and could not get a hold of anyone. Alpha not only answered the phone, but gave me the information needed to get the bond done, very professional and helpful... the best out there! Hope I won't need them again, but if I do I will call A Alpha".

"I would just like to say that i have been using A Alpha for several years now and have had nothing but GREAT experiences. I have always gotten good deals and have always been treated fairly. Its been my experience that in order to have your bond revoked you probably didn't keep up your end of the bargain!!!"

Cash Only Bonds Jeopardize Justice

Timothy Edward Brooks is a habitual criminal. There is no doubt that this man is a danger to you, your friends and your family. He has been arrested many times in Colorado and Florida for driving while intoxicated, driving without insurance, driving while his license is revoked and other crimes. It is only a matter of time until he hurts or kills innocent people.
Brooks has another bad habit. He often misses his court dates. Here is an example:
He was arrested as a habitual traffic offender and released on a $7,000 surety bond that was posted by a licensed bail agent. When his court date rolled around, Brooks did not show up and a warrant was issued for his arrest. The bail agent had to find Brooks and bring him to the court or pay the entire $7,000. By doing some investigation, the bail agent located Brooks in Florida. However, when bail recovery agents (bounty hunters) were sent to Florida to find him, arrest him, and return him to Colorado, Brooks was in a Florida jail facing new charges.
The Colorado courts had issued a warrant for Brook’s arrest, but he was not extradited. The only way he could be brought to justice in Colorado was through the efforts and at the expense of the bail agent. Finally, on the second trip to Florida, the bounty hunters caught Brooks and returned him to Colorado.
Then, an amazing thing happened. This fugitive, who had a long criminal record and who routinely failed to appear in court, was released by the Colorado courts on a $350 Cash Only Bond – he only had to pay the court $350 and he was free again. And, guess what? He didn’t show up for his court date, and another warrant was issued for his arrest. Where did he go? He went back to Florida, outside the extradition radius of the warrant.
Oh yes, Brooks forfeited his $350 to the courts and even owes another $60 for the issue of the warrant, but this time there is not a bail agent who has a lot of money to lose if Brooks is not brought back to face justice– Timothy Edward Brooks remains a fugitive and continues to jeopardize public safety. And if he is ever brought back to Colorado, the taxpayers have to pay the cost.
Why would the court allow a $350 Cash Only Bond for Brooks? It could be because the court knew he would not appear and they could keep the money. That decision by a judge put a habitual criminal at large, the public at risk and the taxpayers paying for a worthless warrant for Brook’s arrest.
Cash Only Bonds are a detriment to public safety and judges should not be allowed to release defendants without significant financial surety that guarantees their appearance in court — the well being of you and your family depends on it.

Pretrial Services Fizzle Turns Into Bail Industry Sizzle

Source, Expert Bail

As September winds down for bail bonds in Denver, so does the Pretrial Justice Institute’s self-proclaimed, first ever annual Bail Month. In what was promised to be a month of facts and research about how effective public sector pretrial programs are and how ineffective the commercial bail industry is, there has been little if any interesting revelations.  In fact, the only research and information that has been provided during PJI’s Bail Month has been daily “Bail Month Facts” that have been posted by the commercial bail industry.  These Bail Month Facts have been pulled from numerous research studies that have been conducted by the past several decades by both public and private entities. Additionally, the most interesting part of these research studies is that each and every  one of them proves that commercial bail is more effective than any other form of pretrial release.  Check out the recent press release from the team at ExpertBail that discusses these daily bail facts and highlights the achievements and effectiveness of commercial bail.  In our opinion, this is the right way to truly celebrate Bail Month.  Read the release below.

 

September is Bail Month:  Celebrating the Bail Bond Industry with the Facts
The ExpertBail team shares a new bail fact everyday through the month of September – See more at: http://www.expertbail.com/resources/expertbail-news/bail-month-pretrial-services-fizzle-turns-into-bail-industry-sizzle#sthash.dvzI3shb.dpuf

(Calabasas, California)  If you haven’t heard yet then you will be happy to know that the month of September has been officially designated as “Bail Month.”  The most interesting part about this designation is that the bail bond industry is not responsible for the declaration.  In fact, the announcement was made by the Pretrial Justice Institute (PJI), a government funded criminal justice social welfare program.  Even more interesting is that PJI has no intention of celebrating the bail industry, but rather an overall strategic objective of eliminating it from the criminal justice system.  That is what makes this announcement so strange, at least for Eric Granof, Vice President of Corporate Communications for AIA, the nation’s oldest and largest family of bail bond insurance companies, and Managing Director of the ExpertBail Network. “Most people when they designate a month to a cause, they do so in order to educate and inform people, in a positive way about that cause,” says Granof.  “But in this case, PJI has declared September Bail Month so that they can spread negative propaganda and misinformation about the bail industry.”  Granof adds, “As a communications professional, it seems like a real misguided and desperate approach.”

So far this month, there has been very little information coming out from PJI and their partner the Justice Policy Institute (JPI) in regards to Bail Month.  The only real communication has been a newsletter offering up three anti-bail publications that were written and distributed to no real effect last September.  But to say that Bail Month has been a total failure would be untrue.  Members of the commercial bail industry have been using the month of September to do what makes sense to do…and that is celebrate the bail industry and educate people on its important role in the criminal justice system.  In order to accomplish this, The ExpertBail Network, the nation’s first and only nationally branded network of bail agents, has spent the month providing daily “Bail Month Facts.”  These daily facts are pulled from decades of research, articles, whitepapers and surveys and are designed to communicate one thing…the effectiveness and efficiency of the commercial bail industry.

“If the public sector pretrial community wants to have a Bail Month, then we will have a Bail Month,” says Granof.  “Every piece of research ever done on the subject of pretrial release, has unanimously and consistently proven that the most effective form of pretrial release is through a financially secured commercial bail bond.  We have no problem sharing and celebrating Bail Month with those facts.”

The most obvious question that follows is then why doesn’t PJI share their facts with the public?  Why don’t they share their research studies?  Granof answers simply by stating, “Because they don’t have any, if they did, they would have called it Pretrial Service Agencies Month.”  Click here if you would like to see the full collection of Bail Month Facts.
