JACUSTOMER,

Unfortunately, it looks like whatever you do is going to cost you money. You can see what, if anything, the bondsman will be willing to accept from you as a guarantee that you will return your son to El Paso; you can hire a lawyer to see if he can expedite the calendaring of the case, or you can make temporary housing arrangements for him somewhere.

Even though the case against him doesn't sound strong, the bailbondsman isn't going to be much interested in that. All he wants is to make sure he doesn't lose his money.
