Chronicles of a Bondsman – 1

True Stories from a Phoenix Bail Bondsman

     Although Phoenix bail bondsmen are in the business of selling bonds and getting people out of jail, there are times we just don’t like to do it.  I got a call the other day from a woman who had found me on the internet by searching for Phoenix bail bonds.  She needed to bail her “fiancé” out of the Maricopa County Jail.  He had a cash only bond for assault, disorderly conduct, preventing the use of a telephone and criminal damage.  This is nothing out of the ordinary; domestic violence cases are extremely common.  What was unusual was this woman had just gotten out of the hospital and was black and blue over most of her visible body.  Her face had claw marks on it, particularly around the eyes.  I couldn’t resist asking how the scratches got there.  The lady remarked casually, “Oh, he was trying to gouge my eyes out.”  The lady also had numerous old wounds and scars on her arms that had not occurred during this incident, which she admitted had been inflicted by him.  As it turned out, the “fiancé” was no stranger to jail; he had a severe drinking problem and had been arrested several times for working this lady over.

    What was awful about this particular story was the woman was blaming herself for the incident and felt guilty for calling the police on him.  I assured her that she did the right thing and that both he and she needed some counseling not bail bonds.  She said that she was getting professional support after this latest occurrence and that the prosecutor was demanding prison for the “fiancé”.  I told her that hopefully things will work out, but I couldn’t resist asking, “Why do you want to bail him out of jail?”  She merely said, “I love him.”
