Wednesday July 21, 2010 | Bail Bond System

July 20, 2010 at 9:04 am | Posted in Coming Up | 1 Comment

New Legislation has gone into effect aimed at reforming the Bail Bond system and our guests today were all instrumental in creating those reforms. If applied correctly, Chief District Judge Lisa Bell says the new rules will save taxpayer money while also ensuring that the most dangerous criminals stay in prison while awaiting trial. We’ll look at the bail bond system in our district; how it works, how much it costs and what can happen when the wrong people get out on bond. It’s a look at the criminal justice system and bail bonds.

  1. I’d like to hear local sheriffs comment on these reforms. But maybe they don’t have the time what with collecting campaign contributions from bail bondsmen, supervising the trustees renovating their McMansions, and managing the illicit franchizing of contraband. Maybe we’ll see them ride down our main streets in a “seized” druglordmobile come Thanksgiving in the Christmas parade.
    Strangely, No one else has commented so far. I’d think some parolee or ex-con would chime in about our dirty imprisonment racket. Watch “Winter’s Bone” to see how you too can lose the homeplace, just for a little cookin’. And they’s some law enforcement approved cookin’ going on here in Gaston County, pill countin” and road-runnin” too.
