Colorado’s New Bail Bond Law Means More Fairness In Setting Bail Bonds and Bail Bond Conditions -Quietly last year – Colorado’s state legislature tweaked bail bond laws that had been unfair for many, many years. With the passage of the Pretrial Bail Law – H.B. 13-1236 – on May 11, 2013, Colorado started the process to reform bail bond laws that had led to unfair and unintended results for decades (since 1972 – 42 years!).
The Colorado Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice (CCJJ) was primarily responsible for the changes.
