Orange County, CA (PRWEB) February 8, 2008
In a new article, BailAgentBlog.com announces that commercial bail bonds provide a long history of success in comparison to publicly funded bail programs.
Though release on own recognizance has been instituted and is a form of pre-trial release used for some cases, the efficacy of recognizance is still lacking. The incentives for reappearing in court under recognizance release are virtually non-existent for a guilty party, so therefore it is obvious why so many recognizance release fail to appear in court.
While protecting the rights of defendants is important, one must also grasp the importance of protecting the safety of citizens. Bail bonds are privately operated, which not only protect citizens, but it saves tax dollars, as well. Bail bondsman use their own bounty hunters, which saves time and money for police precincts and bureaus, who would otherwise be burdened with re-apprehending these bail jumpers. Moreover, bail bonds, because of their efficacy, prevent jail overcrowding, which also saves money for taxpayers. Bail bonds, as mentioned above, offer greater incentives for both parties, while still preserving the freedom of the defendants or offenders. Clearly, bail bonds have triumphed and will continue to triumph over recognizance releases.
