The court is authorized but not required to grant a bond in most cases. The court may deny bond or grant a very high bond for more serious offenses, especially with repeat offenders. When deciding whether to grant a bond as well as to what amount, the court considers the following:
Does the person pose a significant threat of fleeing or failing to appear in court?
Does the person pose a significant danger to any person, the community or property?
Does the person pose a significant risk of committing a felony pending trial?
Does the person pose a significant risk of intimidating witnesses or otherwise obstructing the administration of justice?
