Two more down… | October 19, 2009

So I had two more bonds last week.  The first one was a baby bond.  The guy had moved here years ago and never changed his driver’s license from the previous state.  In the meantime, he wrote three bad checks in another county, also quite a long time ago.  There was a bench warrant out for his arrest and when he was traffic stopped in my home county, they had no choice but to arrest him. Whats interesting is that they charged him for over $200 on the driver’s license charge, instead of giving him a PR bond.  So for $35, I took care of initial charge and got him transferred to the other county to face the bad check charges.  The judge in that other county gave him a PR bond.  So between Paytel calls and other expenses, I think I earned around $2/hr on his case.  But there is a silver lining here.  The guy was older and had some health problems, so he spent most of his time in jail at the medical ward.

While in there, he referred me to another guy who was accused of stealing a motorcycle.  The guy with the motorcycle was caught because he happened to wreck the bike.  He’s broken in a few places and thus was spending time in medical also.  I took care of his bond for $250 and that went a long way towards covering the phone bill(s).

I only have one other case brewing.  I can’t really say much about it, but he bond is for $50k and there is a defense attorney involved that I would very much like to impress so he will send me more business.  I’m trying to cut a deal on the bond and offered $4,000 with $1,500 down and $2,500 in payments or $3,800 upfront.  I’m hoping to seal the deal in a day or two.

In other news, I’ve discharged my first bond.  Doesn’t mean much, but it is a milestone none the less.
