What kind of release options are available?
There are five basic release options available:

How does bounty hunting (fugitive recovery) work?
In the wild west when outlaws like Jesse James and Butch Cassidy roamed the land local sheriffs didn't have the resources to track them down alone. So they put up "Wanted" posters offering huge rewards for their capture (Jesse James was worth $5,000 big, big money at the time). Bounty hunters answered the call tracking the bad guys relentlessly for a piece of the reward money. They did anything it took to bring in the outlaws, "dead or alive." Today the stereotype of the rogue bounty hunter remains even though most modern bounty hunters are trained and licensed professionals. The wild west free-for-all has been transformed into a real business and an integral part of the American justice system.
When you watch a news story that involves an arrest you may hear something like "Bail was set at $100,000." Bail money is set to ensure that the person who is charged with the crime shows up in court. The more serious the crime the higher the bail amount. For the most dangerous criminals no bail is set at all -- they must remain in police custody. Not everyone who is accused of a crime can afford bail money, which can run into the hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of dollars. In those cases a bail bondsman will step in and put up a bail bond -- sort of like a loan -- in return for a percentage (usually 15 percent) of the total bail. The bail bondsman will then secure a bail bond from a Surety company. The bail bond acts as Surety guaranteeing that the accused will show up for his or her scheduled court appearance. But if the accused decides to skip town and miss the court appearance (which about 10 percent do) the bail bond must be paid -- and it's the bondsman who must pay it. For this reason, bondsmen will require a co-singer ("Indemnitor") for the full Bond Amount. Because bondsmen are liable for the bail bond amount and the police can't always find their man (or woman), many bondsmen hire a professional bounty hunter -- or Bail Enforcement Agent, as they prefer to be called -- to track down "skips" for their services. By all accounts Bail Enforcement Agents are more effective than the police. Their effectiveness - they apprehend nearly 95 percent of all bail jumpers.
What gives bail enforcement agents authority and effectiveness?

Taylor VS Taintor, 16 Wall, 366
When bail is given the principal is regarded as delivered to the custody of his surety (Bail Bondsman).
Their Dominion is a continuance of the original imprisonment.
Whenever they choose to do so, they may seize and deliver him up in their discharge, and if it cannot be done at once they may imprison him until it can be done.
They may exercise their rights in person or by agent (Bounty Hunter).
They may pursue him into another state, may arrest him on the Sabbath, and if necessary, may break and enter his house for that purpose.
The seizure is not made by virtue of new purpose.
None is needed. It is likened to the rearrest by Sheriff of an escaping prisoner.
What is the history of bail?
The United States' bail system has evolved from a system developed in England during the Middle Ages. In 1677, the English parliament passed the Habeas Corpus Act, which, among its provisions, established that magistrates would set terms for bail. The English Bill of Rights of 1689 declared restrictions against "excessive bail" and later inspired the Virginia state constitution and the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The Sixth Amendment to the Constitution states that all people under arrest must "be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation" they face and also allows a person to demand bail if he or she is accused of a bailable offense. Still, American bail law is actually rooted in legislation. The Judiciary Act of 1789 stated that all non capital offenses (crimes that did not carry the possibility of the death penalty) were bailable. In the case of capital crimes, the possibility of bail was at the judge's discretion. The act also placed limits on judges' powers in setting bail -- think back to the English Bill of Rights' prohibition against "excessive bail.Bail law in the United States remained relatively unchanged from 1789 until 1966. In 1966, the U.S. Congress passed the Bail Reform Act, which was designed to allow for the release of defendants with as small a financial burden as possible. Before signing the act, President Lyndon B. Johnson gave a speech that contained stunning examples of how the bail system had hurt people in the past. Here's one particularly disturbing example: "A man spent two months in jail before being acquitted. In that period, he lost his job, he lost his car, he lost his family -- it was split up. He did not find another job, following that, for four months". Other anecdotes related similar stories: poor people spending months in jail only to later have the charges dropped; others forced to sit in jail, unable to work, only to be found innocent of all charges. In short, the bail system was biased against the poor and filling jails with people who should be out on bail.The next major revision to U.S. bail law came with the Bail Reform Act of 1984, which replaced its 1966 predecessor. While the previous Reform Act had helped to overturn discrimination against the poor, it had left open a serious loophole that allowed many dangerous suspects to receive bail as long as they didn't appear to be flight risks. This new law stated that defendants should be held until trial if they're judged dangerous to the community. The law also established new categories of who could be held without bail -- mostly those charged with very serious crimes, repeat offenders, the potentially dangerous and anyone who might be a flight risk. And finally, the act stated that those who were eligible for bail had to have a bail hearing.
How do Bail Bonds work?
Bail is a procedure by which a Judge or a Magistrate sets at liberty one who has been arrested or imprisoned upon receipt of security to ensure the released defendant's later appearance in court for further proceedings. Release from custody is ordinarily affected by posting a sum of money or a bond although originally bail included the delivery of other forms of property such as title to real estate.
The principal use of bail in modern legal systems is to secure the release pending trial of one arrested and charged with a criminal offense.
The purposes of bail pending trial in criminal cases are to avoid inflicting undue punishment upon an innocent person (who may be acquitted at trial) and to encourage the unhampered preparation of his/her defense.
The amount of bail is generally set in relation to the gravity/degree of the offense charged although some magistrates take into account other factors such as the strength of the evidence the character of the accused and his financial ability to secure bail.
Failure to consider financial ability has generated much controversy in recent years for bail requirements may discriminate against poor people and certain minority groups who are thus deprived of an equal opportunity to secure their freedom pending trial. Some courts now give special consideration to indigent accused persons who, because of their community standing and past history, are considered likely to appear in court.
What is a Bail Bondsman / Bonding Agent?
A Bail Bondsman/Bonding Agent is a person that is licensed by the State of Colorado and a Surety company that has the ability to issue a surety bond which will guarantee the appearance of the defendant to all court proceedings.
What is a co-signer and why is one or more required?
A co-signer is the person who will be paying the bail bond premium and providing collateral if required and ultimately responsible for the defendant's appearance in court for all court dates and times and ultimately responsible for the full amount of the bond if the defendant fails to appear in court and co-signer full amount of the bond if the defendant is not arrested and in custody and the bail bondsman has to hire Fugitive Recovery Agents/Bounty Hunters the co-signer will charged for this expense that can become very expensive so it is in the co-signers best interest to make sure the defendant sign for is going to all of there court dates.
What is bail for?
Bail is for the defendant to be released from jail pending the conclusion of his or her case and is designed to guarantee the appearance of a defendant in court at the time the judge directs.
How much does a bail bond (surety bond) cost?
In Colorado the bail premium (fee) is 15% or $50 minimum, Typically for bonds $5,000 or larger we charge 10% of the full bail amount with approved cosigner for example if the bail amount is $10,000, the premium charged is $1,000. Most detention facilities charge bonding, booking or filing fees of $10 to $50 each.
How much of the premium will I get back?
The premium is fully earned once the bail bond is posted with a jail or court. That is how bail agents and their surety companies make their money.
Can I use collateral for a bail bond?
The premium for the bail bond must be paid in full.
We accept cash or credit cards.
Larger bail bonds may require additional collateral this ensures the bail bond agent has the ability to collect should the defendant fail to appear in court.
When will collateral be returned?
Collateral is usually returned when the court has finalized the defendant's case(s), exonerating the bail bond(s), and when all fees have been paid. You must deliver bond release documents from the court to the Bonding Agent.
How long does it take to get released from jail?
Depending on the jail some jails require the Bonding Agent to make an appointment to do bond and It typically takes anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours to be released on bail in a Municipal or City Jail, If a defendant is booked into a county jail it usually takes anywhere from 2 to 4 hours to be released on bail.
What happens if if the defendant fails to appear?
A few jurisdictions make it a separate criminal offense for failing to appear. By not appearing in court at the appointed date and time is vary serious matter and will become a failure to appear and as a result the court will issue a warrant for the defendant's arrest.
Life gets busy and do miss there court date should the defendant miss court the defendant should contact the bondsman immediately to discuss how to resolve the matter the court does allow the bail bondsman to give a consent of surety to continue the bond and will cancel the warrant and reschedule a court date.
What to do if a defendant is in jail or pass aways?
Contact the bail bondsman immediately if the defendant is in jail this will keep the expense of a file started for a fail to appear. If the defendant passes a way the bondsman will need a copy of a death certificate to present to the court.
Can a bail bond be revoked?
Yes, the bondsman has the right to revoke a bail bond and rearrest the defendant at any time. This may happen if the defendant is violating his or her bond conditions, if the defendant has not checked in with their bondsman or have not filled out a defendant application in full as required by the bail bondsman. Additionally, the co-signer and only the co-signer has this right to request the bail bondsman to revoke the bond and rearrest a defendant. If the co-signer feels that the defendant may be violating their bond conditions, is going to fail to appear in court by not going to court at all, or even leaving town, which may jeopardize the co-signer to be liable for the full bond amount the co-signer must contact the bonding agent and inform the agent about their concerns and intentions. At that time the co-signer will be required to sign a bond revocation form to start the process of having the defendant rearrested.
