The Ohio Bail Agents Association has endorsed Justice Kennedy and Justice French for their upcoming election. We would like to encourage all of our agents to go out and support both of these Justices. Any contributions for their campaigns can be forwarded to the OBAA and we will get it to their campaign (no corporate checks). Both Justices voted in our favor in the recent lawsuit against ten percent bonds. What better way to support them than to get out there and vote for them, help them financially with their campaign, and to talk to our friends and family about the importance of keeping them on the Supreme Court. If you have any questions or would like to make a donation to their campaigns you can contact Kirsten Keim (740) 616-1980 or send them to 289 S. 3rd Street Columbus, Ohio 43215. Checks can be made out to French for Justice and Kennedy for Ohio.

 


WHAT YOUR ASSOCIATION HAS DONE FOR YOU:


BAIL AGENTS WIN

A big win for Ohio bail agents, thanks to Woody Fox (Woody Fox Bail Bonds).

The Ohio Supreme Court ruled in favor of the following: Writs of mandamus sought to compel clerks of courts and judges to accept surety bonds in all cases where bail is set by the court.

Crim.R. 46(A) is unconstitutional insofar as it allows a court to require a bond secured by a 10 percent cash deposit under Crim.R. 46(A)(2)

Bail may be set under Crim.R. 46(A)(2), so long as a surety bond is accepted as an alternative.

Writs granted. SLIP OPINION NO. 2014-OHIO-2926 THE STATE EX REL. SYLVESTER v. NEAL, CLERK. THE STATE EX REL. FOX ET AL. v.WALTERS, CLERK, ET AL.

[Until this opinion appears in the Ohio Official Reports advance sheets, it may be cited as State ex rel. Sylvester v. Neal, Slip Opinion No. 2014-Ohio-2926.] (Nos. 2012-1742 and 2013-0364—Submitted February 25, 2014.

Decided July 8, 2014.) IN MANDAMUS.
