I found myself dealing with this company when a family member got arrested and directed them to contact me as a potential source of funds to go towards issuing his bond. While they were consistently polite, they were rather insistent and borderline impertinent in their questions about my finances, which I've now come to learn is their entire business model: maximize the lump sum down payments made when they post the bond with the court, and write as many bonds as humanly possible. You have now been warned, bail bonds in California are like casinos: you will lose more money than you probably should, and in these casinos you'll have a personal shepherd whose job is to make sure you cough up as much as you let them get away with.

For a long time bail bonds was a respectable industry, bondsmen safeguarded their reputations and only people who had both the means and the intent to pay off their obligation and appear for their court dates could get out on bond. Big chains like Aladdin with offices in every West Coast town with a county jail have flipped all that on its head, having found a way to game the system without consequences from the government. Basically they will bond out pretty much anyone, knowing with near certainty that only 40% or so with ever pay another dollar beyond the initial lump sum and will fail to appear in court and need to be tracked down. They've found that since most people have little knowledge of the bail system and are under pressure to rescue a loved one, they're easy marks. If they just press that vulnerability and maximize the amount they collect up front from everyone, regardless of their trustworthiness or the crime involved, they have more than enough to cover dealing with the deadbeats. Profits go up even more by paying their employees low wages with a commission based on their "sales," resulting in some pretty shameless high-pressure tactics.

When I first talked to their agent he asked about my finances then explained that after reviewing my relative's case, they were requiring either $2700 cash or $1350 cash and a promissory note against me for the entire cost of the bond. These were affordable but far enough from my comfort range that after a couple hours I said I'd decided not to get involved. He instantly brought those numbers down to $1200 and $2200, contradicting his earlier contention that their costs were fixed. I repeated my intention not to become responsible and said goodbye. Over the next four hours he continued text messaging me, and each time the numbers went down. Six hours after we first spoke, he was offering to get my relative out of jail for $500 cash even though I held firm to my decision not to co-sign for the rest of the fee or be responsible for any other requirements of the bond.

While I did take his final offer, it seems clear to me that this company is far from trustworthy and engages in practices bordering on usury as a business model. I wouldn't willingly do business with them again if an alternative was available, even if they charged more. How can you feel secure in incurring any obligation to them when they appear to have about as much honesty as a carnival barker?

The victims have been identified as being Krissy Lynn Orbon (32 year-old female from Willits, California) and Damian Michael Wilkins (8 year-old male from Willits, California).

Attempts are still being made to locate and notify the next of kin of the suspect (49 year-old male) and as a result his identity is being withheld at this time.

UPDATED PRESS RELEASE (01-11-2019):

Sheriff's Detectives have concluded scene investigations which included interviews and collection of physical evidence at the residence located in the 5000 block of Hearst Willits Road in Willits, California.

Sheriff's Detectives were able to determine the incident was the result of a murder-suicide wherein a 49 year-old male killed a 32 year-old female and 8 year-old male before committing suicide.

The murder-suicide was accomplished by use of a firearm determined to be stolen during a burglary of a nearby neighbor's residence (the caller requesting the welfare check).

The male adult and female adult were identified as having a romantic relationship to include being the biological parents of the male child.

The Sheriff's Office has no documented domestic violence case involving the individuals outside of this specific case.

The identities of the deceased individuals are not being released at this time due to the pending notification of the next of kin. Forensic autopsies are scheduled for 01-15-2019.

Anyone who might have information that they think would be beneficial to Sheriff's Detectives are urged to contact the Sheriff's Office Tip-Line at 707-234-2100 or the WE-TIP anonymous crime reporting hotline at 800-732-7463.

Written By:
Sergeant Quincy Cromer #2651

Synopsis:
On 01-08-2019 at approximately 12:30 P.M., Deputies with the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle in the 2800 block of Ridgewood Road in Willits, California.

It was believed that a subject with a felony warrant for his arrest was an occupant of the vehicle.

Deputies ultimately contacted the rear passenger in the vehicle who was identified as Marvin Gibson.

Gibson had a felony warrant for his arrest issued in Mendocino County for the charges of 459/460(a) PC [First Degree Burglary], 487(a) PC [Grand Theft], and 496(a) PC [Receiving Stolen Property]. Gibson was placed under arrest without incident.

During the continuing investigation, Deputies questioned the driver of the vehicle who was identified as Alice Strang. Deputies determined she provided false information to them multiple times and misidentified the subject who she was transporting in her vehicle. It was ultimately determined that Strang was attempting to conceal and aid Gibson in his efforts to avoid arrest for his warrant.

Strang was placed under arrest for 32 PC [Harbor / Aid / Conceal a Wanted Fugitive] without incident.

Strang was subsequently booked into the Mendocino County Jail where she was to be held in lieu of $15,000.00 bail.

Gibson was subsequently booked into the Mendocino County Jail where he was to be held in lieu of $100,000.00 bail pursuant to the felony warrant.

Incident Number:
2018-8630

Crime/Incident:
Coroner's Investigation / Continuing Search and Rescue Efforts

Location:
California State Highway 1 at Mendocino County Road 430 in Westport, CA

43000 Block of North Highway 1 (AKA Juan Creek) in Westport, CA

Date of Incident:

Time:
7:05 PM

Victim(s):
Hannah Louise-Holiday Hart (AKA Scheurich) 16 year-old female from Woodland Washington

Suspect(s):
N/A

Written By:
Lieutenant Shannon Barney

Synopsis:
On 03-26-2018 around 4:15 PM the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office responded to the area of Juan Creek and North Highway 1, just north of the Town of Westport in Mendocino County to the report of a traffic collision resulting in five fatalities.

These persons were later identified as all belonging to the Hart Family; Jennifer Hart (38 years of age), Sarah Hart (38 years of age), Markis Hart (19 years of age), Jeremiah Hart (14 years of age), and Abigail Hart (14 years of age).

As a result of this investigation three other family members were listed as missing persons; Devonte Hart (15 years of age), Hannah Hart (16 years of age) and Ciera Hart (12 years of age).

An extensive investigation was initiated into the cause of the collision, the location of the three missing persons, and the cause and manner of death of the decedents. This investigation has been an ongoing effort with the cooperating investigatory agencies being; The Clark County Washington Sheriff's Office, the California Highway Patrol, and the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office.

On 04-07-2018 around 1:56 PM human remains were again discovered on the beach just north of where the original collision occurred.

On 04-17-2018 the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office was notified the decedent had been identified. The remains were identified via DNA testing by the California Department of Justice Bureau of Forensic Services Laboratory (DOJ LAB). These remains were positively identified as belonging to Ciera Rose Hart (12 years of age).

On 05-09-2018 the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office again responded to this area after a citizen reported partial human remains found on the beach.

These remains consisted of a partial foot located inside a shoe and attached to a pair of jeans. The jeans and shoe appeared consistent with those that would fit a smaller sized person.

The remains were forwarded the to the DOJ LAB to see if a DNA profile could be determined and if so, could the remains be identified as one of the two remaining missing children, Devonte Hart or Hannah Hart.

On 06-08-2018 the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office was notified the results of the testing by the DOJ LAB were inconclusive and the remains could not be positively identified.

The DOJ LAB personnel requested additional samples from known family members so additional testing could be conducted.

In October of 2018 a woman who identified herself as the mother of Markis, Abigail, and Hannah Hart contacted the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office and indicated she had heard of this incident via a family member.

She was fully cooperative in this investigation and with the assistance of Detectives of the Mobile Alabama Police Department, a DNA sample was obtained from this person and forwarded to the DOJ LAB for comparison testing.

On 01-08-2019 the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office received word from the DOJ LAB that the additional DNA test results showed a positive identification of the partial remains found on 05-09-2018 as belonging to Hannah Hart.

Devonte Hart is still listed as a missing person with the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office.

It is believed, the most likely scenario is that he too perished in this incident but the case remains open and active.

The Mendocino County Sheriff's Office is poised to follow up any viable investigative lead but has not received any indication of Devonte being located elsewhere.
