How Much Will Bail Be?
Felony bail requires that a bail bond hearing be held. During the hearing, the financial situation of the person in custody will be analyzed and taken into account. Also considered is the nature of the crime. If your loved one is being held on a felony charge, the situation is serious, and the bail will be higher than if the charge was a misdemeanor. If the crime they are accused of is violent in nature, the bail will be higher. The risk of flight is also considered. To determine the risk of flight, the court will look at the person’s nationality, whether they have a valid passport, if they have a large amount of cash available, and if there is a history of flight in past court proceedings.
