The Bail Process
In California, bail is set on a county-by-county basis. Sonoma County judges perform an annual review of the bail schedule and will adjust the amounts as needed. This bail schedule will be used by law enforcement throughout the county to set bail amounts for defendants.
The judge always considers public safety when setting bail. If the defendant could cause more harm to the public, the bail amount will be set higher. If the defendant is a repeat offender, their bail amount will be set higher.
Any extenuating circumstances will be taken into consideration. For example, if the defendant was arrested for a DUI but also caused an accident, injury, or death, the amount of bail will be greater than that of a DUI bail alone.
The judge will also consider if the defendant poses a flight risk, i.e. no family ties to the community, no job, etc.
In some instances, the judge may allow the defendant to be released on their own recognizance (OR) and no bail will be needed for their release. The bail amount could also be reduced by the judge.
There is also the possibility that the judge will order the defendant to be remanded, meaning that there will be no bail and the defendant will spend the duration of the court proceedings in jail.
