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?

Synopsis:

On 03-15-2019 at approximately 6:22 p.m., Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies received a call for service to contact a victim of a stabbing that was at Redwood Coast Medical Services in Gualala, California.

Deputies responded and contacted a 35 year-old female and learned she was assaulted shortly after arriving at a residence in the 40000 block of Old Stage Road in Gualala.

After the 35 year-old female arrived to contact a friend at the location, she was confronted by the female suspect over potential relationship issues with another male. The 35 year-old female only knew the suspect’s first name as Veronica. During the confrontation the suspect produced a knife and stabbed the 35 year-old male in the lower abdomen.

Deputies observed the 35 year-old female had an injury to her lower abdomen that was consistent with a single stab wound. She was subsequently transported by air ambulance to an out of county hospital for further treatment of her injury.

Deputies responded to various locations in the Gualala and Point Arena areas to conduct further investigations, including the location where the incident reportedly took place.

Deputies contacted several subjects and developed further information on the suspect’s identity, who was believed to be Veronica Lopez.

Deputies were unable to locate Lopez until 03-16-2019, when they arrived at a residence in the 31000 block of Skaggs Springs Road in Stewarts Point, California.

With the assistance of the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, Mendocino County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the location in an attempt to locate Lopez.

Deputies found Lopez at the location and after finding and observing evidence associating her to the crime, Lopez was arrested without incident.

Lopez was transported to the Mendocino County Jail where she was booked to be held in lieu of $35,000.00 bail.
