How is the bail amount decided?

Bail bond amount
 

Judges in the county of where the alleged offense occurred usually set a bail amount at a suspect’s first court appearance after an arrest. To set a bail, they follow a standard practice (for example, a bail amount of $500 is set for non-violent petty misdemeanors). However, based on the circumstances of an individual case, standard bail can be raised, lowered or waived altogether.
