A bonding agent contacted me to write my bond. Is this legal? | Denver Criminal Defense Attorney


Bail bonding agents are prohibited from soliciting bail bonds in or around a place where prisoners are confined, arraigned or in custody.  A bonding agent may not contact a defendant in custody to solicit business.  It is proper for a defendant or co-signer to contact the bonding agent.  It is not uncommon for a jailed defendant to have the bail agent call a co-signer to make arrangements for bail.
