One small thing, while reading through the page - you suggest
allowing other players to "bail" jailed players out. Unfortunately,
I can see it being way too easy for characters to be bailed out by
rich alter-chars or guildmates. With all the other safeguards in
place, there's no reason such a quick release is necessary.

And just a thought on bounty levels. Would it be an idea to tie max
bounty values to the level of the killer? As higher-level chars are
more likley to have better equipment or bigger bank accounts to pay
the larger fine. And of course, bigger bounties would be needed to
attract the attention of the higher-level bounty hunters...
