ANSWERS & BAIL INFORMATION
ARREST AND BAIL BONDS
Q: What is a Bail Bond?
A: A bail bond, technically called a “surety bond”, is a contractual undertaking guaranteed by a state licensed bail bailbondsman who is backed by an insurance company. The bail agent guarantees
to the court payment of the full amount of the bond if the defendant fails to appear for their scheduled court appearances. For your protection, always deal with licensed bail bond
Q: What is the cost of a Bail Bond?
A: In most states, including Denver Colorado, Aurora, Adams County,Arapahoe,etc, the cost of a bail bond is up to 15% of the bail. Note that each state sets their rates and the rates are
non-negotiable. There are no hidden fees or taxes for a bail bond.
Q: Can I find Cheap Bail?
A: The cost of a bail bond in Colorado is set with the Department of Insurance at 15% of the total bail amount or no less then 50 dollars. We often get the questions from potential clients: “Can
you do it for less?”, “Would you take 5% if I pay cash?” Any agent offering bail at 5% in the State of Colorado is simply acting illegally or deceptively.
We understand that you want your bail bond at the lowest cost. If possible, you want “Cheap Bail Bonds“. We will work with you to find the best situation to obtain
bail in a legal manner.
Q: Do you offer 5% Bail or Negotiate Premium?
A: We do not negotiate bail premium. Some people may not care if paying an illegal 5% bail premium is against the law. However, we ask you to consider carefully the position in which
unlawful bail puts you. If a bail agent is breaking the law by price-cutting, will the same agent return your collateral? Will he or she surrender the defendant back to the court without cause? 5%
sounds like a great deal, but what will it really cost you? Please be careful and think through your options before accepting a cheap bail bond offer.
Q: How do I pay for the Bail Bond?
A: When arranging bail, companies generally need payment in advance of “posting” a bond for the release of a detainee. We accept cash.
At Concrete Bail Bonds, we know the cost of the bail bond is more than many people have at hand. Therefore we offer various payment plans, flexible financing and
payment plans when acquiring a bail bond. In many cases, we can offer no collateral bail bonds.
Q: What happens when a person is arrested?
A: When an indivdual is arrested, generally, they will be taken to a local law enforcement station for processing and booking. Processing and booking includes fingerprinting, pictures, and
nation-wide computer database searches. It can take many hours, but in smaller jails generally happens more quickly. Bail cannot be arranged until the arrest process is complete.
Q: What is a “Cite Out” or “Cite & Release”?
A: A Citation Release involves the issuance of a citation to the arrestee, informing the arrestee that he or she must appear for an appointed court date. This is typical for more minor
infractions such as traffic violations. No bail bond is required.
Q: What is “O.R.”?
A: Defendants can be released on their Own Recognizance, also known as “OR”. This is usually reserved for lesser crimes. Only a judge can decide to release a detainee on OR. In such a case, the
defendant is released with a written promise to appear in court and no bail is required.
Q: Can I just pay the jail for the full amount of the bail?
A: Yes, you can. To be released on Cash Bond, an individual must post the full amount of the bail with the court in the form of cash or cashiers check. In order to post cash bail, an
individual should check with the bail clerk to verify forms of payment accepted in an individual jurisdiction as different courts may have other options or restrictions. The source of funds for large
bail generally must be verified to ensure that funds come from legal sources.
Q: What is the procedure for bailing somebody out of jail?
A: Generally, a bail bond company will be contacted by phone to begin the bail procedure. During the initial phone consultation, most companies will ask for information about your situation in
order to determine the risk involved in the bond and begin the approval process.
Once the bail bond is approved, the customer will need to sign basic bail bond documents including an application, Indemnity Agreement, and receipt. After the
paperwork is finalized and payment has been made, a licensed bondsman will “post” the bail bond at the jail.
Q: Can your company quickly handle bail bonds for any jail in Colorado?
A: Concrete Bail Bonds can handle your bond quickly. From start to finish, most bail bonds are completed in 1-2 hours.
Q: Do you offer financing or payment plan options?
A: We realize that the cost of a bail bond may be more than you have readily available. If you qualify, we can work out a payment plan.
We do not charge a fee for financing.
We will work out payments that you can afford.
We offer no collateral bail bonds to qualified applicants.
We accept cosigners (make sure you understand your bail bond indemnitor responsibility before you sign).
Q: What happens if the defendant is not bailed out?
A: If the defendant is not bailed out, he or she will generally remain in custody until the matter has been resolved in court.
Q: What other bail information and legal resources are available?
A: Concrete Bail Bonds has a great collection of bail bond resources for your easy access and convenience. From bail schedules to informational articles, you can find what you are
looking for when it comes to information on bail bonds.
BAIL BOND COLLATERAL
Q: What is collateral?
A: Collateral is something of value that is used to secure a debt or ensure payment. Sometimes a bail bond company will receive collateral in order to ensure that the defendant appears in
court. Most bail bond collateral is in the form of real estate or cash. A bail bond company must return your collateral at the resolution of the case.
Q: Do I always need collateral for a bail bond?
A: Not with Concrete Bail Bonds. We often negotiate no collater bail bonds. These are called signature bonds. We find that most of our customers are eligible for a signature
Q: If I use collateral for a bail bond, when do I get it back?
A: When the defendant’s case has been completed and all financial obligations are satisfied, collateral is returned to the individual who pledged it.
Q: Will the court take my property as bail collateral?
A: Yes, the court will take your property as bail collateral. However, because Property Bonds involve real estate and can be likened to the buying or selling of a home, the process usually
takes several weeks. Equity in the property must be equal to 150% of the total bond amount.
BAIL BOND RESPONSIBILITIES
Q: If I bail somebody out of jail, what is my responsibility?
A: When you bail someone out of jail, you are called the bail bond indemnitor. You take full responsibility for the defentant to show up in court when you bail someone out of jail. Most
issues with appearance in court are easily resolved and rarely escalate beyond a simple phone call.
Q: What happens if a defendant is bailed out and fails to appear in court?
A: If the “Failure-to-appear” in court was a simple mistake, then the bail bond company or an attorney can usually make arrangements for the defendant to return to court. Courts generally
understand that people get sick, traffic or car problems arise and other unforeseen circumstances occur. This is most commonly the situation and is easily remedied.
