Bail Bond Confessions Blog

Thought of the week | April 4, 2010

I recently had a thought about this business I’m in.  It’s rather unusual in that families that are strangers to crime that find themselves in the position of having to bail out a loved one will often end up paying the full price of a bond from a bondsman, whereas a family of a career criminal will often pay a much lower price for a bond because they know how to negotiate and shop around. Personally, I would prefer our legislature to pass a law making the minimum amount a bondsman can charge 10%.  If all the bondsman were on a level playing field, it would be safer for the community and they would be forced to differentiate themselves by providing better service.

  1. Unfortunately, at 10% you get the unscrupulous bondsmen doing bonds for 5%. We see it everyday. I swear people are going to start asking us to give them money to allow us to bail them out.

  2. Thats not really any worse than what we have going on currently. They are doing bonds for 6% now.
