History of Bail Bonds


The system of posting money or property in exchange for temporary release pending a trial dates back to 13th century England. The commercial practice of offering bail bonds arose out of a need to balance the playing field among the rich, middle, and poor classes when individuals were accused of a crime.

Bondsmen will accept a percentage of the bail needed and post the full amount for someone who has been charged with a crime and is awaiting trial. In the past, only those who had enough money and property to post as security were lucky enough to secure temporary release pending their trials.In there court case, in a defendant’s name after receiving a percentage of the amount as insurance. There are  fees involved when using a commercial bond service, which is how the organization profits from this practice.

Bondsmen in the United States have been around since the early American Colonial period. The laws concerning bail bonds have been changed and refined over the years. These laws have mostly addressed fairness in setting amounts according to the crime that has been charged. Bondsmen have changed some specific practices according to individual state laws, but the basic concept has remained largely the same.

The business of posting bail bonds for individuals who are qualified by the court provides a much-needed service. Those who are financially unable to profer the entire amount of funds set by the court often find this service to be an invaluable one. 

Bail Bonds have a long history in the American legal system. The American legal system was mostly derived from the English legal system, and bail bonds have been around since the thirteenth century in the English legal system. As always happens in countries with free economies, enterprising people came up with a business model that involves providing this service. Bail Bonds firms have been around for centuries, but the business is largely the same. Bail bondsmen like Santa Ana's 24 Hour Bail Bonds will take a certain percentage of an accused person's bail and post the full amount with the court so that the defendant is allowed to go free. While the bail bonds business didn't change for centuries, there have been several changes recently in the American legal system

 After 1776, the former colonies adopted constitutions that retained specific prohibitions against excessive bail, but did not create an absolute right to bail in all cases.

The prohibition against excessive bail remains in force today in all state constitutions except for Illinois, see Frederic J. Stimson, The Law of the Federal and State Constitutions of the United States § 122, Excessive Bail 165 (2004), the constitution of which reads, “All persons shall be bailable by sufficient sureties, except for” certain enumerated offenses. IL. Const. Art. I § 9. Others are similar or identical to the federal constitution. New York’s constitution, for example, provides that “excessive bail shall not be required nor excessive fines imposed.” N.Y. Const. Art. I § 5. Pennsylvania’s constitutional language is identical. PA Const. Art. I § 13.

Rather, the power was reserved to the legislatures to define which offenses were considered bailable. Capital crimes, for example, were subject to special restrictions and were not bailable at all. In America, as in England, the fact that a defendant was accused of a bailable offense did not guarantee his automatic release. Judges were empowered to consider individual factors, such as the evidence against a defendant, the probability of conviction, and his criminal history in determining what amount constituted reasonable bail. 


The Bail Reform Act of 1966

Prior to enactment of The Comprehensive Crime Control Act of 1984, bail determinations were governed by The Bail Reform Act of 1966, which was codified into law at 18 U.S.C. §3146-3151. Generally speaking, these provisions provided that all persons accused of violating federal law would be released from custody without having to post any bond with the Court unless the Government could demonstrate that the defendant was likely to flee the jurisdiction of the Court to avoid prosecution. The fact that a given defendant might pose a danger to the community was not a factor a magistrate could consider in determining whether a defendant should be released from custody. Indeed, under The Bail Reform Act of 1966, magistrates were required to release those accused of violating federal law without requiring any financial bond unless it was determined from the facts of a given case that additional conditions of release were necessary.

In determining which conditions of release would reasonably assure the defendant’s appearance at all Court appearances during the pendency of his case (which was the true litmus test of The Bail Reform Act), the magistrate was required to take into account the nature and circumstances of the offense charged, the weight of the evidence against the accused, the accused’s family ties, employment, financial resources, character and mental condition, the length of his residence in the community, his record of convictions and his record of appearance at Court proceedings or of flight to avoid prosecution, or failure to appear at other Court proceedings.

 If, after examination of these facts, it was determined that certain conditions of release were necessary to assure the defendant’s appearance at future Court appearances, the magistrate could order that some sort of secured bond be posted. Even in this instance, however, the Court could not under The 1966 Bail Reform Act order imposition of a financial bond unless he first found that other conditions of release would not assure the defendant’s appearance at all Court proceedings. Accordingly, the reviewing magistrate was to consider whether pre-trial service supervision, travel restrictions, reporting requirements or other alternative conditions of release would guarantee the defendant’s appearance.
