Bondsman's action was legal

Shelbyville Times-Gazette: Story: Bondsman's action was legal: "A Shelbyville-based bail bondsman has not violated a state law against unprofessional conduct because the signs at his recently-opened office next to the Marshall County Jail are advertising, not solicitations.

That's the ruling from Circuit Court Judge Robert Crigler who denied a motion from Assistant District Attorney General Eddie Barnard on Wednesday when the prosecutor cited a law defining unprofessional conduct by bail bondsmen as soliciting business directly or indirectly, by active or passive means.

Bail bondsmen found to have acted in an unprofessional manner may be stricken from a list of approved bonding companies, according to state law."
