Jerice Hunter Bond Request Turned Down by Bail Bondsman; Mom's 5-year-Old Still Missing, Believed Dead

A Valley bail-bond company says it has denied an offer to write a bond for Jerice Hunter because her daughter is still missing and the bond amount is too low.


The operators of Regulator Bail Bonds, Inc., tweeted and Facebooked their displeasure last night, urging the state's other bail-bond companies to follow their lead.


After Hunter was arrested on suspicion of child abuse following the disappearance of her 5-year-old, Jhessye Shockley, a judge set her bond at $100,000.


A channel 15 (KNXV-TV) news report stated yesterday that a local church was trying to raise the 10 percent of the bond needed to free Hunter from jail.


Jim Hood, the owner of Regulator, won't say who contacted his company this week with an offer to put the front money and collateral down for Hunter. But Hood turned down the offer.

Jhessley Shockley, 5, was beaten severely and kept in a closet by her mother before her disapperance, police say. The girl is believed to be dead.

"We hold ourselves to a high moral standard," says Hood, who adds that it wasn't the first time his company had refused to take on a bond based on the moral implications.


Here's what the company said on its Facebook site:


Regulator Bail Bonds INC

We are urging ALL ARIZONA BONDSMEN to deny writing this bond. We will not be posting this after working with this family for over a month. We have decided that this is a battle that needs to be fought in a political arena. ASK yourself the following questions: Wonder why crime is so high in Maricopa County? I know why it's has to do with the court system. The judges have control. There is no s...et bail schedule. Example (last week posted a 150,000.00 bond for a false rape. Two weeks later the case was dropped as the accuser withdrew her testamony. This week a mother is accused of Killing her baby girl and her bond is a measly 100,000.00 the sad part is we know she has the money and the property and that some idiot will write this bond. I'm not a judge but it's real simple ...in maricopa if you commit a crime like beating your wife. Your bond will be 1500.00 amazing. Join us as we battle the system and make our community safer by replacing incompetent and antique judges.

She's in jail, good. Now why isn't the mom who left her two year old in the car and he's missing or the mom who's toddler was "snatched" by an intruder or casey anthony....oh yeah I am so going to pull the race card....They should all be in jail without bond, black or white, yellow or green, when their child is missing and it's suspected foul play.

I have a theory... the body can't be found because.... Jerice Hunter ate it. Yep, wolfed right on down with some fava beans and a nice chianti. I would check her stool.

They just want higher bonds for all crimes. The higher the bond the more money they make.

maybe but what their point was if you read the article is that when people have money THEY are setting the bond too low. The people can easily get bond and then jump bail. Which means then that the bondsmen have to find the people...

Well let's see...you're Jerice Hunter, your previous hobby was beating your kids and now for some reason you're accused of it again, in fact let's be real clear, you are already an ex-con in this regard and a bondsman wants a higher bond for you. Wow what a surprise!

Franklin are you one of the family members...just kidding because the family has been playing the race card 2 seconds after this child was missing. You do understand, regardless of what happened in this case, this freak woman is a walking piece of trash but what the hell so is the rest of her worthless family.

No, they must have human values. Nice try on playing the race card, but this has to do with what this monster did, not the color of her skin.

agreed. And their race makes no difference in what my opinion is of them. What they did is despicable.

Hmm.  You brought up skin color first.  I've found those who think only in terms of skin color are racists.

Wasn't trying to imply you are a racist. WAS trying to imply that you're ignorant for trying to inject race into this issue which is the murder of a HUMAN CHILD.
