What is a Misdemeanor?
If you’ve been charged with a misdemeanor, it means you have been accused of a crime that is more serious than an infraction and less serious than a felony, but that can still have stiff punishment. Because this is a lesser crime, the bail will be less, but there will still be a bail set. In most cases, the crime, the circumstances, and flight risk at factors influence the amount of the bond set. Bond for a misdemeanor is not always set, and when it is, it may be done without a hearing. How it is done is dependent on the location and jurisdiction.
