Bail is the vehicle provided for the accused to obtain true liberty. Bail & Fugitive Recovery Agents provide a time honored accountability to court systems everywhere. By including the "circle of love" (family) in the release of an accused, bail agents provide a much needed service in accountability.
Bail will come to a Vote
Secured bail is a centuries-old practice. As early as the year 400, an accused in Anglo-Saxon courts in England had to find a friend or family member, called a “surety” who would agree to pay a settlement if they failed to appear in court.
Today, anyone in the American court system who’s been charged with a crime is entitled to a bail hearing shortly after their arrest. At this point, all accused are supposed to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. At this pre-trial hearing, judges or magistrates, decide whether or not to keep the defendant in jail before their trial. The judge may keep the accused detained if he’s deemed dangerous to the public, or if there’s a good reason to think he won’t show up for court. More often, the judge will give the accused the option of posting bail to procure his swift liberty.
