For people who choose not to wait out the sometime slow-moving wheels of justice behind bars, a bond can get you out of jail until your court date. Julie Mazilly says that much of the work of the modern-day bail bondsman is done behind the desk, on paper and on the computer -- "nothing like Dog the Bounty Hunter," she laughs.
"Basically, I'm an insurance agent," she adds.
But just in case things don't go according to plan she along with her agents, have a combined 40 years of experience rounding up "skips" who don't show up for court. Mazilly Bonding is licensed to write bonds anywhere in the state of Louisiana and provides "recovery services" in state as well as across the Southern U. S.
