While it is very uncommon for a judge to re-evaluate and lower a person’s bail upon his or her request, there are chances of having the amount set lower than it could be in another situation. Bail is determined by the arrested person’s past criminal history and the severity of the crime. Here are some ways to ensure you are given the lowest bail possible:
- Zero Past Criminal History – make sure your judge knows this is your first offense ever. And do not lie because they will check. You need to stress your disappointment and regret, knowing that what you did was a mistake.
- Family and Community Ties – gather as many loving and trusted family, friends, and community members as you can who live in the city you were arrested in. The more who can vouch for you and look after you, the better. Generally, people with strong ties are less likely to take off after posting bail.
Bail is still going to be expensive, regardless of how low it may be.
