Summary New Jersey bail bond companies are making it possible for accused killers, thieves, drug dealers and individuals charged with gun-related crimes to go free on installment plan deals before trial without the knowledge of judges and prosecutors. It's a practice that has come in for criticism in states like Washington and Ohio where defendants set free on payment plan deals have been accused of murder. This is the first investigation to document how often defendants secure these deals.
