Affordable Bail Bonds have a owner that believes the law does not apply to him. The home of the "Toughest Sheriff in America, Joe Arapaio", is also home to the sleaziest bail bond agent in America, Richard Dickerson.

As a result of a complaint to the Secretary of State in November, 2004 he had his Notary Public License Suspended. In addition, the Department of Insurance suspended his Bail Bond Agent license TWICE 2005. Yet, despite numerous complaints, his is allowed to operate under his suspended dba.

Furthermore, his name and company is still listed in the licensed bail agents list that is posted in every city and county jail facility in Maricopa County. This is another way he bends the rules.

He has one other unique method of doing bonds. He frequently "discounts" the rates and then after the inmate is released he sends his recovery agents to pick the person up and bring him back into custody. The reason, of course, is to generate more money.

I take serious insult to his "business" practices since I, too, am employed at a Bail Bonding Company. Please don't judge all of us like him. He is what gives the industry a bad reputation.

#1 Author of original report

Notary License Suspended

AUTHOR: Susan - (U.S.A.)

I realize the report was originally written several years ago but I had just today stumbled on to the response that the Bail Bonding Company's owner (RICHARD E. DICKERSON) was not suspended.

I do stand corrected -- it was not suspended -- it was REVOKED!  The difference is that a suspension is temporary and a revocation is permanent.  

The following is the information provided on line at the Arizona Secretary of State's website:  This is a copy of what is given when looking up information about an individual's notary license.

Notary Information
364 N 1ST AVE
PHOENIX, AZ, 85001-0000

Notary Commission Information
Begin Date End Date County Bond Date Action Date Action Type Reinstate Date Reinstated Action Type
12/6/2004 12/5/2008 MARICOPA 12/27/2004 3/31/2005 REVOKED 5/11/2005 SUSPENDED
12/6/2000 12/5/2004 MARICOPA 4/5/2001

12/6/1996 12/5/2000 MARICOPA 12/6/1996


Obviously the man was not following the state's Public Notary laws, rules, and regulations.  This is the true record and the truth of the matter.
