on December 22, 2009
This year, Richmond’s only bail bondsman, Tony Suggs, expects to post half the bonds he did last year. He says that lower credit lines and foreclosures have led to bail becoming impossible for many. He invited Richmond Confidential to come along on a surveillance ride and to meet one of his favorite clients.
