Blogspot: Bail Bond Agent Birmingham, AL How does a judge determine bail?

How does a judge determine bail? This is a great question.There isn’t a magical one size fits all bail formula judges use to determine bail. There are standards, but judges have discretion to set bail depending on the case. There are several factors judges consider when setting bail: seriousness of the crime, criminal history, employment status and how likely it is the accused will skip town and not show up to court hearings. Typically, the bail for felony charges are much higher than those of misdemeanor crimes. In Alabama, felony crimes include robbery, kidnapping and murder. Misdemeanor crimes include: first degree trespassing, third degree domestic violence and cruelty to animals.
