They stay in business by getting courts to waive the bond forfeiture when the defendants don't show up in court.
This was a big story on 9 Wants to Know a year ago. All these guys care about is profit.
I am so sick of Colorado...talk talk talk that's all they do when it comes to sentencing reform. When are these people ever going to be allowed out and to get on with their lives??? Let's not ever forget the victims of crime, but there are also a ton of victims who are family members of the offenders. It's not enough that our loved ones are taken away from us, often on BS charges, but also taken is their income, their ability to support their families and kids. Then when they finally are released, parole looks for every way it can to revoke them and if a technical violation doesn't work, then they stress them out to the point that they give up and give in, commit another crime and go back...why not...they know there is no escaping parole here in Colorado.
I know a guy who was revoked because "he wasn't taking parole seriously enough"...hello...what the heck? Colorado tax dollars at work! End mandatory parole! That will save a serious amount of taxpayer money and allow people the opportunity to get on with their lives. CDOC should taken their own studies seriously...you know, the one that shows early parole and discharging their sentences works better than having someone looking over your shoulder for 5 years???
