Why is bail is so high? Can something be done to lower the bail?
One’s bail or one’s bond is generally set in accordance with the severity of the charge for which one has been arrested. So, in the event that you have been arrested for a felony, your bond is going to be higher than if you have been arrested for a misdemeanor. The more serious the charge, the higher the bond. The question to be determined is whether that bond can be reduced, yes bonds can be reduced upon motion to the court.
