Can I Have My Name Removed from a Bail Bond

Posted on March 4th, 2012 by Tonya Page

Today’s bail related topic comes from Yahoo! Answers.

Question: If I bail somebody out of jail but was was one of the persons to put a warrant against him can I be charged and go to jail?  If so, how do I get my name removed from the bond?

Recently I put a warrant against my boyfriend for domestic abuse. We eventually worked things out and got back together, although he ended up going back to jail. I then bailed him out ( which was allowed by the bail bondsman).  Later, we broke up and I decided I wanted nothing to do with him, so I requested that I be removed from the bond, and now the bondsman will not let me because I have a warrant put against him, she said that I would be charged.

Answer:  A bail bond is a legally binding contract, this means you have legally agreed to make sure he appears to all of his court dates. As far as being removed from the bond, Read more »

Burbank Jail Renovations Complete

Posted on March 1st, 2012 by Tonya Page

For almost a year, Burbank has had to share the Glendale jail while its own underwent renovations. At last, the finishing touches have been made and the Burbank Jail is now ready to open its doors and accept inmates.

Transporting Burbank arrestees to the Glendale jail added at least 45 minutes to the process for police officers. This would increase the amount of the response time for Burbank.

The new facility will be able to house up to 70 inmates and bring added convenience to the police officers.

Burbank Police Lt. John Dilibert said, “Response times will decrease because we can turn over officers quicker, versus commuting to Glendale and back. It is such a huge benefit. We have control of what’s happening in the jail, and as watch commander I know what’s going on down there.

Bail Bond Phone Scam

Posted on February 24th, 2012 by Tonya Page

As bail bondsmen we see these bail phone scam alerts about twice a year. They are a real concern for the general public. Residents of Morgan County Alabama have been the latest put on alert for a phone scam that has been making the rounds recently.

The scammers have been calling around, pretending to be from a bail bond company, and telling business owners and families that their employee or loved one has been taken to jail. The fraudulent bondsman then tells the person that, in order to get their friend/ family member/ employee out of jail, thousands of dollars need to be wired directly to them.

The scammers have even gone so far as to give the person they call a fake phone number for the Morgan County Jail so that when he or she calls to verify that their loved one is, in fact, there, then the scammer will answer the phone as an employee of the jail and confirm that their friend or family member has been arrested. Wow! That’s a new one.

Two people have paid money to the scam artist, one paying more than $6,000. At least six other people have contacted the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office to ask about their family members.

Here are a few warning signs to be on the alert for if you receive a call for bail help:

LAPD Devonshire Station Reports Crime Reduction

Posted on February 21st, 2012 by Tonya Page

The LAPD Devonshire Station Community Enhancement Plan has successfully reduced area crime by 14% since it was launched on Jan. 1.  Capt. Kris Pitcher said that the program may be implemented in other problem areas if it continues to be successful.

According to a report by the Daily News the plan focuses on targeted patrols within crime-dense neighborhoods.  One such operation involved setting up a sting for would-be “Johns”  as a means of deterring solicitation.   Vice, narcotics and gang enforcement units are also being implemented.

Sgt. Jose Torres said they are trying to deploy in the areas with the most impact with the minimal number of officers.  Torres further said officers are routinely reallocated on specific missions so they have a higher probability of encountering crime.

The Northridge based LAPD Station is also Read more »

Bail vs. Remaining In Custody

Posted on February 19th, 2012 by Tonya Page

Question: My boyfriend is in jail and is eligible for bail, he is being charged with possession of a controlled substance.  His charge should be dropped because he has proof of  a prescription.  He will have to go court in about 2 weeks, but he really wants out.  In order to bail him out I have to pay $700 for the bail bondsman fee, but I know I will not get my money back when the case is over. We have a 7 month old baby and I know he will not be patient enough to wait until his court date, which is 10 days away.  If the case is dropped or dismissed he will be out free without having to have paid $700.  I need your opinion as to what I should do.  Do I bail him out or leave him in jail until his court date?

Answer:  Ten days is a long time to wait in jail.   If he has a job he needs to go to, you might want to get him out — jobs are hard to come by at this point.

If he does not work or provide care for your daughter, you may want to consider the cost of bail bonds.   How much of a financial hardship would it be even if you pay the $700?  Something else to consider is the emotional cost to you, him and your child if you decide to leave him there.
