The quick answer to that question is no. If a Ventura bail bondsman wishes to revoke a person’s bond they must have just cause for doing so. A bail bond can be thought of as an insurance policy of sorts, except instead of insuring an item against damage, it insures the behavior of the defendant, and that the defendant will go to court when required. If they decided to “skip bail” and flee, the bondsman has one of two options: capture the defendant and return them to custody or pay the full bail amount to the court as a penalty.
If a defendant is out on bond and applies for a visa or passport, this could potentially lead to the revocation of Ventura bail bonds. If they engage in illegal activity, this could also qualify as “just cause”
If the person who signed the bail contract has opted for a payment plan and has fallen behind on payments, this would not constitute “just cause”. In California, a bondsman is not allowed to “punish” a defendant by returning them to jail. If the person who signed the Ventura bail bonds contract no longer wants to be responsible, this would not constitute “just cause”.
