My sister helped bail me out a few weeks back. My bail was set at $25,000 and the bondsman helped her set up a monthly payment plan. The problem is that I have been unemployed for the past six months and she just lost her job. She told me today that she is behind on the payments. I have gone to court when I was supposed to and have another appearance scheduled for next week. I don’t think I have done anything that would allow for my bond to be revoked, but I’m scared because we owe the guy money. He said we have 24-hours to pay or he’s sending me back to jail. Can you help me? What should I do?
The commercial bail industry in California is strictly regulated, and state law prohibits a Palm Desert bondsman from revoking a bond for non-payment. A bondsman can, though, revoke a bond for a large number of reasons, many of which may not make sense to the defendant. You might want to reach out to the California Department of Insurance and let them know the person you hired is threatening to send you back to jail without reason. They may be able to direct you to a consumer protection department, which might be best suited to help you through your situation.
