    Missing court when on bail in Minnesota!
    When a bond is executed for a defendant in Minnesota. The bonding agency along with the cosigners to guarantee the appearance of the bailed defendant.

    When a defendant fails to appear in court, a warrant is issued and the executed bond is forfeited. The bond company as well as the cosigner are responsible for the principle bond amount of the bond executed. The bonding agency has 90 days and up to 180 days to resolve the bond forfeiture. Many companies will send bounty hunters to hunt down their client, arrest them and return them to custody, well within the 90 day mark.

    This practice is pretty typical, as it reduces the risk of the principle bond amount executed to be absorbed by the bond company and ultimately the cosigner of the bond. This may be necessary, however it is also bad business in our humble opinion. A bond forfeiture should be able to be resolved by the originating bondsman amicably, quickly and professionally.

    If you truly are a cherished client, most bond companies will work with you to quash your warrant and execute a new bond. Many companies treat you like a number in the beginning and a problem in the end. There is no common ground typically other than to save money or make money. This of course is understandable, as the company assumes most the risk of the bond. However, is there compassion, trust and understanding to legitimately resolve the matter?
