    I do not know how the case turned out, but I recall some BH entering the wrong house a few years ago and shooting the homeowner for drawing a gun to defend his house. It does happen. If it happens at my house, I will take some of them with me.

    I might add that the chances of a bounty hunter making a visit to my home is almost non-existent.

    They always need to be 100% certain that they bust into the right house.
    If they ever slip up and crash into the wrong place or Whoops! do an incorrect ID - they get into the deepest of doo doo.

    When you get a bond from a bail bondsman the paperwork you fill out says he essentially owns your freedom. It can be revoked at any time for no reason. This is why he can enter your house at any time. It is similar to a parolee, they can be stopped and searched without a warrant as they are essentially still in jail, just not locked up.

    I've said it before...actually to a "bounty hunter" who told me he could come in my house anytime he wanted to if he thought one of his skips was in there

    I've done nothing to warrant ANYONE coming into my house without my consent...anyone who tries will be treated accordingly.

    Yep. Was big news pushed nationally. At the time the industry was virtually unregulated. Lots of states responded by enacting controls like limiting authority, and certification. I don't pretend to know the whole story, just recalling what I remember...

    That BH was some kind of rogue wonderboy that screwed the pooch for everybody. System had been working fine for over 125 years til he came along.

    Fugitives from bond have scarce rights. You see Dog playing nice but I've known fugitives to be transported in car trunks. BHs are the only component of the criminal justice system that turn a profit, and they are non governmental agencies. Go figure.

    1) don't skip bail
    2) be discerning as to your houseguests: if they're likely to have skipped bail, you may find yourself in this awkward situation.
    3) hope that the bounty hunters do their homework.

    That said, it sure seems to me that they would be indistinguishable from home invaders. The idea of leaving them to watch the front and back door (so they can apprehend whoever they think is there) and calling the cops to sort things out would be the best course of action, if it could be done. That presupposes that you talked to them through the closed door, though.

    Meant to say this earlier:

    The few BHs I've met close a lot of their cases by calling the fugitive and saying, "We know where you are. You don't want trouble with your people there. Come out."

    And it works!

    I am a bail bond agent, so allow me to chime in. What you saw was dramaticly dramatized, else is wouldn't be on TV. In some states as the indemetor (the person putting up collateral to the bail bondsmen) you are probable cause to the where abouts of a fugitive at large, and sometimes warrants are not required. No one is just going to knock down your door and come in. What you didn't see on the TV show is that they most likley (in fact I'll say I know for certain) staked that house out for hours on end until the fugitive showed up.

    Bottom line is, don't harbor fugitives and you won't have guys pounding down your door asking you questions.

    Also, it's better for business if we don't have to do that, and it IS a business so that is a priority in how we think.

    I also display a badge that says Bail Bond Recovery Agent and if a situation where we have a suspicion that we may encounter hostile activities, we call the cops straight up.
