Bail for undocumented immigrants in question before Maryland high court
from The Baltimore Sun
Maryland's top court could make it much more difficult for undocumented immigrants to secure bail bonds, in a case likely to resolve long-standing questions about whether bondsmen are on the hook when clients get deported before trial. In a case pending at the Court of Appeals, Big Louie Bail Bonds has been ordered to pay more than $100,000 in Baltimore County in bail forfeitures after 10 defendants were deported before their criminal trials. At issue is who should bear the financial responsibility when immigration enforcement moves faster than a court case, sending the defendant out of the country before trial.
