Lufkin Bail Bondsman Arrested

by Ramonica R. Jones

Most criminals call a bail bondsman to get them out of trouble.  But what happens if the bondsman is also a criminal?

That's what Angelina County authorities are calling James Curtis Giles, Sr., the owner of All Brothers Bail Bonding in Lufkin.  They arrested Giles last week for failing to register as a sex offender.

Attorney Vanessa Potkin said, "His whole conviction rests on a single eyewitness identification, and for over 15 years, he's been trying to get DNA testing to prove his claim of innocence."

There is no law in Angelina County preventing a sex offender from writing bonds.  The county is now trying to start a bail bond board to prevent situations like this from happening again.

Giles became a sex offender after an alleged rape in Dallas County.

"He's been on parole for several years now and has, throughout that time, complied with the requirements.  I am not sure of the details of what transpired [before last week's arrest]. It may just be a matter of some type of misunderstanding since he was recently having some troubles with his wife."

Giles has been on parole since 1993.
