Description

Since 1992 in Kanawha Circuit Court, 247 people have violated bail requirements, but the county prosecutor rarely collects money on forfeited bail. The Gazette examines how this situation creates a low-risk to no-risk business for the county's four professional bail bondsmen. (Sept. 12, 1996)
