Most people arrested in Broomfield County are either released on their own recognizance or are released after contacting a bail bond agent and posting bail. In some cases, however, the court may see fit to attach conditions to a person’s bail. These may include staying away from specific individuals, showing up to work every day, not leaving the jurisdiction where the alleged offense was committed, or wearing an ankle monitor.

Ask anyone from your grandparents, parents, and your own generation to name some of their favorite TV programs and you’re likely to hear titles like Perry Mason, Law & Order, and NCIS. These and countless other programs and movies have mined the criminal justice system for storylines for as long as there have been movies and TV, and that trend shows no signs of slowing down. That said, one side effect of using the judicial system as fodder for fictional stories is that those stories often propagate fictional notions of things like bail and bail bond agents, and those myths ultimately wind up finding a place in the public consciousness.
Bail enables an individual accused of a crime to secure their release while they await their day in court. It is an integral part of the concept of a person being innocent until proven guilty. Bail has a long and interesting history that can be traced back at least in part to ancient times, but which really came of age in medieval Europe, and in particular, England. In this post the team at Urban Bail Bonds takes a look at the origins of bail bonding and how the role of bail agents has changed over the centuries.
A “hate crime” is typically defined as a criminal act motivated not by greed, desperation or momentary passion, but instead by deep-seated bias against a person because of their race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, age, nationality or personal or political beliefs. There are myriad laws on the books in Broomfield County and throughout Colorado – and indeed throughout the United States – designed to address this specific type of crime. In some cases, those laws include increasing, or even eliminating bail for persons accused of committing a hate crime. In this post, the team at Urban Bail Bonds will examine the potential effects of hate crime charges on bail.
Once the bail bond company posts your bond and you are released from jail it means you’re essentially free to resume your life until your court date rolls around, right? Not really. At the very least you will be forbidden from leaving the state until the legal process runs its course in your case. And it’s also possible that other conditions might be imposed on your release. Violate any of those conditions and you are likely to find yourself back in Broomfield County jail where you will molder until your court date rolls around. In this short guide, we’re going to take a close look at some of the conditions attached to being released on bail.
Holidays are a special time. Families get together to catch up, share experiences, and discuss their hopes and plans for the future. That said, there are some things that can put a damper on the holiday mood: that uncle who always drinks too much, a simmering feud between siblings, and bad weather to name a few. But none of those will have quite the impact of someone in the family’s inner circle being arrested. The good news is your local bail bond agency can help prevent an arrest from spelling the end of your holiday celebrations.
It costs a lot of money to keep people in jail, and with prison populations soaring over the past 20 years cities, counties, and states have been exploring ways to reduce the number of people in their jails without unleashing chaos on the streets. Some tried to kick the bail bonding company to the curb, only to see spikes in crime and recidivism. Others have embraced the idea of home confinement. Home confinement may be used as an alternative type of sentence (particularly for non-violent offenders) to reduce prison populations, or it may be imposed as a condition of bail. In which case it’s referred to as “pre-trial home confinement”.
