Depending on the grounds for an arrest, one’s rap sheet and the Judge setting the bond, the amount of the bond can vary greatly. At the time the bond is set, the Judge has limited information regarding all aspects of the alleged crime and will tend to set a higher bond rather than a low bond. Once more facts about the offense and arrested individual have been determined, a bond reduction hearing may be warranted.
