Americas Most Unwanted and The People Who Find Them



This week we are going to tackle the Elephant in the room, Pretrial in all its glory. What amazes me is that everyone likes to grumble about it, but no-one seems willing to take the problem on. It may well be the death knell of comercial surety. It is time to take a stance on Pretrial. I have spent a couple of days digging into the economics. The poor taxpayer is taking it in the ass. Best stat I found was New Jersey where they want $1.5 million to hire 10-15 new people to head up the Pretrial effort. This is ridiculous!
