Krystal Banks, bail bondswoman and author of the book, “Don’t Be a Dumb Criminal,” has designed a special 4-hour seminar for educators and community leaders to experience a lifesaving, educational program that teaches youth and adults how to stay out of jail. The seminar provides information and tools, including a comprehensive student guide: DON’T BE A DUMB CRIMINAL: THE WORKBOOK, developed to help parents and teachers inform our youth about crime and the law and to reinforce the use of common sense. Banks explains, in plain language, what happens during an arrest, the jail, and bonding process and how the court system works. The 4-hour seminar provides the knowledge needed when encountering the police and how to avoid unintentional illegal acts.

  • Simple to Serious – How a minor act can turn into a criminal offense
