Yes. If you can bring in the defendant, you may request to have the bond revoked and him incarcerated and get the bond returned to you
Who do i contact to get the bond revoked?
You will go to the Magistrate's office and file a Motion to Revoke bond.
You will have to have delivered the defendant to the sheriff and have a letter receipt stating that he.she is in custody
You cannot revoke and then surrender.
Surrender first. Then revoke
the defendant was an employee and right after posting bond he stole a company truck, no warrant is out for him yet. The officer in charge of the case said i cant take him into custody. I just wanted to clarify that I have the legal right to apprehend him if I am the one that posted the bond.
Are you a licensed bonds man?
Or just the employer who posted bond?
as a licensed bondsman you have arrest powers.
No, I am the employer
As a friend who did a favor you have no arrest powers but that does not mean you cannot apprehend a criminal
What I suggest is you go to the Magistrate and tell them you want to Revoke the Bond
I know that bail bondsman turn over bonds to Bounty hunters, isnt that the same situation? Anyone that holds a bond is the custodian?
Yes. And you may apprehend.
But you do not have arrest powers.
For instance, you have no right to break in a door and arrest this guy
as a Licensed bondsman would be able to do or hire a bounty hunter to do it. You cannot hire a bounty hunter to do that because you are not a licensed bondsman. But you can apprehend and surrender.
For instance you can tackle the guy in the street and hog tie him, throw him in a pick up and bring him im
bring him in
You just dont have authority to break into his home and yank him out
as a bounty hunter would
Bondsman and bounty hunters are licensed.
I like the tackling and hog tieing part!!! I'm on it!! Thanks!!
You're welcome. Good luck.
