Bail is set by the judge during a bail hearing. Bail doesn’t just depend on the severity of the crime. It also depends on the judge’s consideration, which is influenced by the defendant’s prior convictions, ties to the community, family, and employment status.
If you cannot afford the bail that the judge determines during your bail hearing, you will need to hire a bail bondsperson. After paying a small fee, the bond dealer will pay the entirety of the bail. If you cannot afford your bail, give us a call.
