Motion to Exonerate vs. Return of the Bounty Hunter


Opinion Editorial by Rex Venator

Not too long ago, taking action to get a forfeited bond exonerated was largely left to the devices and machinations of bail bonds people and their bounty hunters, but the times and tolerances of local governments are changing insofar as I can see.

A prime example lies within the process to move a court with a bail bond motion and all of the parts that go with moving papers. For example, courts used to take for granted that people who drafted moving papers and the ones who showed up for bail motions were being truthful and that was that in many cases; moreover, the laws regarding who may lawfully appear have been in place and largely overlooked.

Today, I am informed and believe that there may very well be cases where people, who grew accustomed to playing around in the gray areas of the bail bond motion process, have been blindsided by the consequences of doing so inasmuch that California is broke and looking for revenue streams. The interesting part here is that the courts are simply enforcing some of the rules and laws that have always been in place.

Of notable interest are the retroactive results of hindsight investigations into whether or not formerly granted bail motions were properly granted in the first place. If not, then there are some people who may be financially hurt or even ruined by playing games with the courts.

Every piece contained within every part of moving papers must be done correctly. By parts I mean not only the traditionally filed documents but the sub-documents must also be correct and then supported by proof correctly and along with a bunch of other rules that have to be followed.

The plain and simple fact of becoming a bounty hunter who is asked to produce declarations and spot technicalities, or to become a bail bonds company owner is that you must understand the bail motion process not only to be competitive but to survive and thrive in the bail bonds business."

My strong suggestion at this time if you do not know how to move a court is to hire an attorney who practices with an emphasis in bail law. If you cannot afford an attorney then it may be well worth the time and effort to seek out training and education on the subject matter raised above.

California Appellate Court Responds


Bail Motions are Not, However, Bullet Proof, so heretofore we arrive at the


Can Independent Bounty Hunter Contractors who are not Licensed Bail Agents Draft and Appear on a Bail Bond Motion for Sole Proprietorships or Bail Bond Corporations?


Opinion Editorial & Analysis


By Bailspeak’s Primary Bail Education Instructor, Rex Venator


The following is based on my personal, layman’s opinion as a private citizen who is simply observing his civic duty.


I thought to follow up and add that the prior email on bounty hunters drafting moving papers and appearing in court for a bail bond surety isn’t applicable, in my personal opinion, with a licensed bail agent, appointed as an agent by the real party in interest bail bond surety moving a court, drafting and appearing under penal code law—so long as the bail agent is appearing for a sole proprietorship and not a bail bond corporation.


It is my personal, layman’s opinion that Penal Code §1305 subsection j does allow for “the bail agent” to draft and appear for an unincorporated bail bond company when he or she is appointed by the surety upon which the bond was written.


It is my personal, layman’s opinion that Penal Code §1305 subsection j carries greater weight and is deemed controlling over Business and Professions §6125 for the purposes of bail agents drafting and appearing on instant, civil matters injected into an existing criminal matter before a superior court.


There are published case cites, however, where the Civil Code of Procedures has sections that are controlling over certain Penal Code, bail related sections, but, for the purposes of this personal opinion analysis, bounty hunters who are not licensed bail agents and appointed by the surety do not have standing under Penal Code §1305 subsection j to draft and appear in superior court and are subject to Business and Professions §6125 penalty—in my personal, layman’s opinion.


It is my personal, layman’s opinion that the curiously lamented reference to an obscure California Civil Code of Procedure section that allows for a bounty hunter “surety insurer” to draft and appear in court is seriously flawed and fatal to any bounty hunter’s argument to the extent that Civil Code of Procedure 995.120 subsection a and b defines a “surety insurer” in part as follows: “‘Admitted surety insurer’ means a corporate insurer or a reciprocal or interinsurance exchange to which the Insurance Commissioner has issued a certificate of authority to transact surety insurance in this state, as defined in Section 105 of the Insurance Code,” “For the purpose of application of this chapter to a bond given pursuant to any statute of this state, the phrases ‘admitted surety insurer,’ ‘authorized surety company,’ ‘bonding company,’ ‘corporate surety,’ and comparable phrases used in the statute mean "admitted surety insurer" as defined in this section.”


Whereas, it is my personal, layman’s position that a bounty hunter appearing for a bail bond company as an independent contractor is, arguably, not drafting and appearing as an agent for the surety in any capacity and in such instances the matter in question then defaults to Business and Professions §6125 primarily because one well established structure of bail agents appearing for their own non-incorporated bail companies in superior courts reverts to another dictum based structure where, plainly stated, a private citizen—not even a corporate officer of the surety, which is also not applicable for the purposes of this personal, layman’s analysis—is somehow not even appearing in propria persona for the corporation and is likened to any person simply walking in off the street not to self-represent but to represent an entity that he or she isn’t even a corporate officer or shareholder of and all of which is because the bounty hunter is not a licensed bail agent who is appointed as an agent for any surety.


Consequently and in my personal, layman’s opinion, judicial action predicated on the unlicensed practice of law subjects the victims of a crime to collateral attack by county governments insofar that previously granted bail bond motions may be reversed at any time, thus causing the potentiality of tremendous harm to the parties of a private civil bail bond contract specifically and the California Bail Industry generally once a court loses jurisdictions to even consider repairing the damage irrespective of remedies buried in ancillary codes.


Furthermore, while California Penal Code §1305 subsection j allows for a surety appointed bail agent licensed by the California Department of Insurance to draft and appear for an unincorporated bail agency, there is no known statutory allowance for a corporate surety to unilaterally circumvent numerous related sections and in numerous applicable California Codes by summarily authorizing a common bounty hunter to practice law for a corporation—in my personal, layman’s opinion.


The civil and criminal liability may be further compounded, apart from a the unlawful practice of law by a common bounty hunter, if facts-in-evidence reveal that an attorney for a corporation, who is a lawyer, authorized the unlawful practice of law since exceptions may not be controlling over other California Codes—in my personal opinion.


In addition to the above paragraph, it may be a misdemeanor crime for any person to intentionally deceive or collude to deceive a court or any party by making oral arguments under Oath or by submitting any document that causes a court or person to believe that a common bounty hunter may practice law separate and apart from established law to the extent that any attorney who provides such evidence or document or opinion may knowingly be faced with a criminal charge, fine and, possibly, disbarment.


To be succinct in the interest of brevity, in my personal, layman’s opinion, a bounty hunter working as an independent contractor for a bail bond company is disallowed to appear under Penal law; moreover, Civil Code of Procedures does not apply because in the absence of Penal law applications the bounty hunter is then personally appearing for an incorporated surety where, arguably, said bounty hunter is engaging in the “unlicensed practice of law;” indeed, a corporation is not a natural person and cannot appear in propria persona; it can only appear through counsel with the exception of sending a corporate representative to small claims under Code of Civil Procedure section 116.510.




Thus California today defines law practice as providing “legal advice and legal instrument and contract preparation, whether or not these subjects were rendered in the course of litigation.” Birbower, Montalban, Condo & Frank, P.C . v Superior Court., supra, at 128. Providing legal advice or service is a violation of the State Bar Act if done by an unlicensed person, even if the advice or service does not relate to any matter pending before a court. (Mickel v. Murphy (1957) 147 Cal.App.2d 718, 721.)


The lead case on this is Paradise v. Nowlin (1948) 86 Cal.App.2d 897. Subsequent cases have affirmed its holding that corporations cannot appear pro per for three distinct reasons: (1) any representative sent on behalf of the corporation would be engaged in the unauthorized practice of law; (2) the rule ensures that qualified professionals will appear in court, thereby increasing the efficient and proper administration of justice; and (3) the distinction helps to maintain the wall between the corporation as an entity and its individuals shareholders, directors, and officers. (Id.; see also CLD Construction, Inc. v. City of San Ramon (2004) 120 Cal.App.4th 765, 773.)


A corporation is not a natural person, and therefore cannot appear in an action in propria persona. It can appear only through counsel. (Merco Construction Engineers, Inc. v. Mun.Ct. (Sully Miller Contracting Co.) (1978) 21 Cal.3d 724, 731.) This prohibition stems from the notion a corporate representative who would likely appear on behalf of the corporation would be engaged in the unlicensed practice of law. (Gamet v. Blanchard (2001) 91 Cal.App.4th 1276, 1284.) The prohibition against a corporation's “self-representation” in court also furthers the efficient administration of justice by assuring that qualified professionals present the corporation's case and assist the court in resolution of the issues; and it helps maintain the distinction between the corporation and its shareholders. (CLD Const., Inc. v. City of San Ramon (2004) 120 Cal.App.4th 1141, 1146.)


PC §1305 (j) A motion filed in a timely manner within the 180-day period may be heard within 30 days of the expiration of the 180-day period. The court may extend the 30-day period upon a showing of good cause. The motion may be made by the surety insurer, the bail agent, the surety, or the depositor of money or property, any of whom may appear in person or through an attorney.


PC §1305 (k) In addition to any other notice required by law, the moving party shall give the prosecuting agency a written notice at least 10 court days before a hearing held pursuant to subdivision (f), (g), or (j), as a condition precedent to granting the motion.


(PC 1305 Amended by Stats. 2012, Ch. 129, Sec. 1. Effective January 1, 2013.)


Business & Professions Re Practicing Law without a License or California Department of Insurance Bail Agent License References


6125.  No person shall practice law in California unless the person is an active member of the State Bar.


6126.  (a) Any person advertising or holding himself or herself out as practicing or entitled to practice law or otherwise practicing law who is not an active member of the State Bar, or otherwise authorized pursuant to statute or court rule to practice law in this state at the time of doing so, is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in a county jail or by a fine of up to one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by both that fine and imprisonment. Upon a second or subsequent conviction, the person shall be confined in a county jail for not less than 90 days, except in an unusual case where the interests of justice would be served by imposition of a lesser sentence or a fine. If the court imposes only a fine or a sentence of less than 90 days for a second or subsequent conviction under this subdivision, the court shall state the reasons for its sentencing choice on the record.


6127.5.  Nothing in Sections 6125, 6126 and 6127 shall be deemed to apply to the acts and practices of a law corporation duly certificated pursuant to the Professional Corporation Act, as contained in Part 4 (commencing with Section 13400) of Division 3 of Title 1 of the Corporations Code, and pursuant to Article 10 (commencing with Section 6160) of Chapter 4 of Division 3 of this code, when the law corporation is in compliance with the requirements of (a) the Professional Corporation Act; (b) Article 10 (commencing with Section 6160) of Chapter 4 of Division 3 of this code; and (c) all other statutes and all rules and regulations now or hereafter enacted or adopted pertaining to such corporation and the conduct of its affairs.

(a) Is guilty of any deceit or collusion, or consents to any deceit or collusion, with intent to deceive the court or any party.

(b) Willfully delays his client's suit with a view to his own gain.

(c) Willfully receives any money or allowance for or on account of any money which he has not laid out or become answerable for.


Any violation of the provisions of this section is punishable by imprisonment in the county jail not exceeding six months, or by a fine not exceeding two thousand five hundred dollars ($2,500), or by both.

Q: This man is trying or tried to be my general bail agent. I think he’s a bail agent, but I’m not sure if he is and what to do.  What should I be concerned about?


 A:  Has someone offered you “paper” to start your own Bail Bonds Company and to act as your de facto general bail agent when such person by deceit, omission or failure to fully disclose critical information about his or herself, that led you to reasonably believe that he or she is or ever was a California licensed bail agent, when such is not or ever has been the case, occur?


This Office routinely and continuously receives reports from independent sources indicating that the practice of allegedly offering people “paper” to become bail bond business owners to the extent that the focus of questions are generally traced back to less than a dozen persons with some more active in the curious rascality of acting as a general agent when such persons either are no longer licensed or have never been licensed to transact bail in California.


As a moral and ethical responsibility to the “protect the public—within the spirit of California Insurance Code §1724.5 (e)—the aforementioned and heretofore general opinion is hereby presented, and the below code sections are for you to begin to decide for yourself as to whether or not someone failed to meet the duty of candor.


*  *  *


Insurance Code



“For purposes of this section, ‘solicit’ shall include any written or printed presentation or advertising made by mail or other publication, or any oral presentation or advertising by means of telephone, radio, or television which implies that an individual is licensed under this chapter, and any activity in arranging for bail which results in remuneration to the individual conducting that activity.”


Insurance Code



“No person shall advertise or hold himself out as engaging in the business of executing, delivering, or furnishing bail bonds or undertakings of bail whether or not for consideration without holding at the time thereof all proper licenses required by this chapter.


Insurance Code



“The violation of any foregoing provision of this chapter, or of any rule of the commissioner made pursuant thereto, is a public offense, punishable by fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars ($10,000), or by imprisonment in the state prison, or in the county jail not exceeding one year, or by both such fine and imprisonment.”


Those persons who believe that they may have been induced by intrinsic fraud or otherwise have been victimized and suffered financial or emotional injury may consider contacting the California Department of Insurance Consumer Hotline via its website.

“I liked the education – and – it was fun!”


“Examples of how situations and actual laws come together – interesting subject matter made time fly – kept class engaged.”


“I liked the real world scenarios.  Bailspeak’s staff and instructor are very nice people.”


“Very impressive.  I liked the amount of topics and how it was presented.  There was nothing I didn’t like.  Rex is extremely knowledgeable and presented all the material extremely well.”


“Excellent handouts and slides help greatly with the retention of the information, which otherwise could have been very confusing.  In depth, real world examples and case sites.  Excellent course and knowledgeable instructor.Thank you Rex and Bailspeak.”


Can Bail Bondsman Appear in Court?

California Penal Code §1305


(j) A motion filed in a timely manner within the 180-day period may be heard within 30 days of the expiration of the 180-day period. The court may extend the 30-day period upon a showing of good cause.


The motion may be made by the surety insurer, the bail agent, the surety, or the depositor of money or property, any of whom may appear in person or through an attorney.


(k) In addition to any other notice required by law, the moving party shall give the prosecuting agency a written notice at least 10 court days before a hearing held pursuant to subdivision (f), (g), or (j), as a condition precedent to granting the motion.


(Amended by Stats. 2012, Ch. 129, Sec. 1. Effective January 1, 2013.)


Important Note: The statute does not include language that would allow an independent contractor bounty hunter draft, appear in court and, arguably, practice law without a license; moreover, it is worth considering the retroactive liability concerning court ordered exonerated bail bonds if such orders were initially predicated on the unlawful practice of law.

A Working Knowledge of the Bail Motion Process is Critical!


A major part of running a bail bond company is, quite frankly, your active willingness and effort to have a working knowledge of how to draft, appear and then stand up in a California Superior Court, fully prepared, to make an oral argument, counter written and oral opposition from government lawyers, and then convince a court that granting your moving papers is the correct action that will also keep your company solvent.


In the below Bail Motion Video, Rex Venator Demonstrates how to get your argument out in 90-seconds and avoid being taken off-point by opposing counsel; indeed, Rex has been drafting bail bond motions and appearing in California Superior Courts as an agent for numerous sureties (Pursuant to California Penal Code Section 1305 subsection j & k) since 1998, and Rex has a 99.7% success rate in winning Orders to Vacate Forfeitures to Exonerate Bonds and with a growing number of recently filed bail bond motions receiving Notice of Non-Oppositions from county counsel and DA attorneys in numerous jurisdictions!

Rex Venator’s Unconventional Brand of Fugitive Recovery


Pursuant to California Penal Code

Beginning with Section 1305


Rex has himself demonstrated to numerous bail bonds companies, surety corporations, and his bounty hunting trainees how he has caused 100% of the bail bond forfeitures he's undertaken to be set aside in open court since 2000.


Rex conceptualized and put into action his "Triple Attack" theory, explained in his book "Desktop Bounty Hunter," whereby, as an agent for multiple sureties, he has simultaneously tracked bail fugitives and while negotiating bail bond motions that were designed to create new causes of actions that ultimately led to bizarre exonerations.


In point of fact, Rex's Brand of bounty hunting has been highly sought after in terms of learning the mechanical workings of his bail enforcement operations, the theories to his bail bond motions, and all of which are drawing larger and larger numbers to California Department of Insurance Approved Bail Education classes that he himself created from Street Proven methodologies.

20 hours of insurance pre-licensing is required to obtain a license to transact bail as a bail agent in California, and this same exact course is also a critical requirement to legally act a bail fugitive recovery agent for a bail bond company and to do all of which within the scope and meaning of many complex and sometimes conflicting laws.


The responsibility of providing the best possible bail education training is taken very seriously, and every effort to produce the most informed bail agents and bounty hunters in the California Bail Bond Industry is considered an honor to the extent that every Bailspeak Certificate awarded is undeniably earned.
