Phoenix Bail Bonds for Meth Addicts

Phoenix Bail Bonds for Meth Addicts

Methamphetamine, “Meth”, use has reached epidemic proportions in our society.  Wherever it crops its head it leaves devastation in its wake.  The excessive use of the drug leaves the usual tell-tales signs of open sores on the face and arms, rotted and/or missing teeth and hard to understand speech patterns.  The latter sign is the one which the bondsman is most familiar, as he takes many calls each day from people looking for bail bonds in Phoenix.  Meth leaves the mouth dry, the tongue swells and people who use Meth sound like they have marbles in their mouth.  Add to the fact that Meth users speak very quickly, words soon blend into a mass of nonsense garbled speech.

      My hearing isn’t the best in the world and cell phone coverage can be very bad in spots, but add to this the self-induced speech impediment that regular Meth users possess and you can forget about having an intelligent conversation.    Sometimes in frustration, I just hang-up.  As a bondsman, we get considerably more calls from females than males.  More men are in the Maricopa County Jail than women, so it makes sense that their women would be trying secure bail.  A large percentage of the women I talk to sound like they are on Meth; this isn’t just a few people.  Our office handles thousands of calls per month and we talk to hundreds of people that sound like they have the habit.

     The Meth habit is extremely difficult to break.  Users soon exhaust their money supplies and revert to shoplifting, burglary and robbery to support themselves and their habit.  The ultimate end to this habit is one drug rehab program after another until the person is eventually sent to prison.  I have seen individuals that were sent to prison for years and within months of release they have been picked up again for dangerous drug charges.

     There isn’t much more I can say on this topic other than clients that continue using Meth after I bail them out are generally unreliable, they are unable to maintain their weekly call in with me and they frequently get re-arrested while out on bail.  More often than not I spend my time trying to talk people out of posting bail on Meth addicts.  The likelihood of the Defendant getting into more trouble while on bail is far greater than any good that comes out of releasing them.

Chronicles of a Bondsman – 2

Chronicles of a Bondsman – 2

True Stories of a Phoenix Bail Bondsman

     I received a call from a Maricopa County Jail inmate who was being held on a $150,000 bond for child exploitation and molestation charges.  The inmate informed me that the Phoenix Police accused him of texting a 13-year old girl to participate in a “sex club”.  The inmate said his phone had been lost or stolen for a month, it couldn’t possibly be him and would I please call his Grandmother so she could post a Phoenix bail bonds.

     When I talked to the grandmother, she said the day he was arrested he was at her house eating supper.  He was texting someone throughout dinner when he suddenly jumped up from the table and went to the bathroom. The doorbell then rang and the police were at the door.  As he was being cuffed he threw his cell phone across the street.  The grandmother went on to say that he had been in trouble from an early age for various charges of molestation.  In the beginning the family shielded him, but now she knows he was guilty all along.  She said her grandson was a classic sociopath, he could not tell the truth and she believed he should be in a “home” for the rest of his life.  The grandmother told me she would never bail him out of jail – she was afraid of him.

Arizona Bail Bonds

Arizona Bail Bonds

Arizona Bail Bonds

     Arizona bail bond companies generally offer free jail information on defendants incarcerated in the county jails throughout Arizona.  As a general rule, most Arizona bail bond companies do a pretty good job of getting their clients accurate information.  When your friend or family member gets incarcerated, it is advisable that you deal with a bondsman in obtaining information.  Jail staff are overloaded by phone calls everyday, often giving the same information to several family members throughout the day. 

     Maricopa County is broken down into two jail systems, municipal jails (police departments) and county jails.  The municipal jails temporarily house inmates before moving them to the Maricopa County Jail.  Municipal jails would prefer providing inmate information once to a qualified bail bond agent who in turn can explain the process and charges to family members.  The bondsman knows what questions to ask and how to properly explain the charges and bail procedures.  The Maricopa County Jail currently uses an automated hotline to provide routine bail bond information.  If your question is not answered through the automated hotline, you can hold for an operator.  Hold times can be an hour or longer as calls are answered in order of calls received.  Bail bondsman can submit an inmate inquiry to jail staff via email, which when returned, provides the same basic information that the Hotline provides.  The Maricopa County Jail is just too large of a system to provide spot on operator assistance.  Maricopa County Bail Bonds provides free jail information to prospective clients earnestly looking for a Phoenix bail bond.  Call (602) 258-4488 to obtain immediate help.

What are the advantages of using a Bail Bond Company?

What are the advantages of using a Bail Bond Company?

Advantages of using a Bail Bond Company

A bail bond company takes the bite out of a bond. Let’s say for example that you want to get a friend out of jail on a five thousand dollar ($5,000) Phoenix bail bond.   As an individual you would need to pay the Court or Maricopa County Jail the whole $5,000 dollars in cash to get your friend out of jail.   Unfortunately for you, the jail does not accept cash from the public; the court only accepts cash from registered bail bondsmen.  However, the jail will accept Western Union Money Orders, US Postal Money Orders and Cashiers’ checks.   Assuming you manage to get the bond posted yourself, the Court will hold on to your $5,000 for an undetermined amount of time until the case is adjudicated and the bond exonerated; it could be months and in some cases years.  The Court will not pay you interest on your money and you cannot retract or surrender your bond.  Only a bail bondsman can surrender a bond or re-arrest the Defendant before he skips out on bail.  Your money will in effect,  be tied up until the Defendant is sentenced.

A Phoenix bail bond company, on the other hand, would only charge you a 10 percent fee to post your bond.  On a $5,000 bond that amounts to only $500.  That $500, fee is nonrefundable, but you won’t have to sell the farm in order to get someone out of jail.  You will, however, need to put up some form of collateral worth at least the bond amount that the Phoenix bondsman will hold onto as security pending the Defendant going to all his hearings; but you get that back upon sentencing or exoneration of the bond.

Maricopa County Bail Bonds understands the Arizona Courts and Jails.  We are familiar with the judges, the attorneys and the jail and court clerks.  We are committed to helping you understand the bail bond process and posting your Phoenix Bail Bonds.  We are happy to answer any of your bail bond questions and to discuss any of your concerns.  Please call 602-258-4488 for immediate service.

What is a Bail Bond Company?

Posted by on Jul 12, 2013 in Arizona Bail Bonds, Maricopa County Jail

What is a Bail Bond Company?

A bail bond company acts as Agent for an insurance company, also known as a Surety.  Surety companies are licensed and regulated in each state where they operate.  The bail bonds company is also licensed to operate in the state, but operates as Agent for the Surety.  Both Agent and Surety are bound by strict regulations governed by the Arizona Department of Insurance.  Bail Bond companies must operate under specific guidelines on the rates they must charge and regulations governing contracts.  Arizona bail bonds sell for a minimum 10% premium and are secured by collateral equal to the amount of the bond.

Bail Bond Agents are authorized to use Surety Powers to post bail bonds.  A Surety Power (also known as Power of Attorney, or bail bond) is a financial instrument that promises to pay the Court the full bond amount in cash if the Defendant doesn’t go to his/her hearings.  The Surety company vests the bail bond agent with the power (Power of Attorney) to create a binding obligation between the Court and Surety company.

Phoenix Bail Bonds are posted for inmates incarcerated in the largest jail system in the state, the Maricopa County Jail.  Maricopa County Bail Bonds is a major supplier of bonds to the Maricopa County Jail; they provide superior service and provide free information to the Phoenix Jails.  Call (602) 258-4488 for Phoenix bail bonds.

Inmate Information – Maricopa County Jail

Posted by on Dec 3, 2012 in Maricopa County Jail

Inmate Information – Maricopa County Jail

Maricopa County Jail Inmate Information

We get dozens of calls everyday from people who are in need of bail bond information.  The caller is usually stressed out and highly agitated because they can’t get the information they need.  In most cases the caller just wants to “know” what is going on and has little to no desire of posting bail.  For these “clients” I offer the following self-help guide.

Guide to the Maricopa County Jail Hotline

The Maricopa County Jail has an automated information Hotline.  In order to use this system effectively, you will need to speak clearly.  Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his staff spent a lot of time developing an answering system designed to provide you with the following types of information:

Specific Inmate:

  • You will need to know the inmate’s Booking Number or his Full Name and Date of Birth.

(If you do not know this basic information you will not be able to use this system.  Bondsmen will need this information as well.  Bondsmen do not have access to a general database, nor do bondsmen have the ability to talk to jail staff.  You must have basic information.)

The following information is available for specific inmates

  • Housing
  • Visitation
  • Specific Charges

General Information:

  • Payment of Bonds
  • Visitation
  • Court Information
  • Inmate Funds
  • Pick-up Property

 Victim Notification:

  • You will be transferred to a live operator

 Self Surrender:
