On June 10, 2011, Rodney Dennis Mayhan,41, was sentenced to three years of supervised felony probation, six months in the county jail and was ordered to pay $3,015.00 in restitution to his previous employer, Aladdin Bail Bonds. Mayhan was also fined $270.00 by the court. Mayhan had previously entered a plea of Nolo Contendere to one count of grand theft, in violation of section 487 of the penal code.

Reports were received by the California Department of Insurance (CDI), Investigation Division, alleging that Mayhan, a Bail Agent previously employed by Aladdin Bail Bonds, had stolen bail premium money and issued forged/stolen documents to the courts. Mayhan was originally licensed by the CDI to act as a Bail Agent on July 26, 1999. On May 11, 2009, CDI issued Mayhan a Summary Order of Revocation, as a result of the Aladdin Complaint, the CDI investigation results, and the District Attorney's criminal prosecution.

CDI conducted an extensive investigation and determined that on January 14, 2008, Rodney Mayhan arranged a bail transaction using Aladdin Bail Bond forms and received $3,015.00 in cash from the bail co-signor. Mayhan kept this cash for his own benefit and he provided a bogus bail bond to the court. Aladdin Bail Bonds never received any premium in connection with this bail bond. This case was prosecuted by the District Attorney of San Mateo.
