The Nation's Most Trusted Bail Bond Agents

Bail Month 2014 - Bail Fact #5

Monday, September 8, 2014

Bail Fact #5 2014As we enter the second week of Bail Month, we flash back to 1997 and a study conducted by the American Legislative Exchange Council.  One thing people don't remember to realize is that many of the people who are released with a financially secured bail bond are those who public sector pretrial services agencies have not released and those who may have already failed to appear on a previous public sector or OR release.  In other words, the commercial bail industry gets to handle the more difficult defendants and still outperforms other forms of pretrial release significantly (2 to 1 according to the study).

If you would like to receive a copy of the study, visit our bail bond resource library to request one.
