Below, we offer a brief explanation of how bail works in Colorado.
When an individual is arrested, typically that person will be taken to a local law enforcement agency. Once processed and booked into jail, the inmate may be given bond at that time. In some cases the inmate will need to go before a judge for bail to be set. If bond is to be set by a judge, that usually takes place the following business day.
Bail is designed to guarantee the appearance of a defendant in court at the time the judge directs.
A surety bond can be posted by a licensed bail agent or agency. Our agency charges a none refundable percentage of the bail bond. In most cases we will also require an indemnity agreement to be signed. This indemnity agreement is to guarantee the defendants appearance in court. With money on the line, our bail agency has a financial interest in ensuring that the defendant will appear in court each end every time the court orders them to appear. If the defendant does not appear in court (skips), we have the financial incentive to find the defendant and bring him/her to court or jail.
