Note: The Bail Schedule is the presumptive bail for many, but not all statutory offenses. A Judicial officer may review bail in any individual case and exercise discretion in setting appropriate bail different from the schedule.

In doing this the judicial officer will consider:

  • protection of the public,
  • the seriousness of the offense charged,
  • the previous criminal record of the defendant, and
  • the probability the defendant will appear at trial or at the next hearing.
