What are the factors that go into determining bail?
Before bail is determined, there are many factor which pay a role in how it is determined. The first would be if the defendant has any previous criminal history. If bail was ever set before, your appearance in court will also be considered. Things that would affect bail decisions in a positive way would be, if the defendant has any community connections, a regular job, or any family ties in the area. Mental state and character are also considered.
What is the cost ?
