HOW BAIL IS SET

Bail amounts in California are set on a county level by judges. Annually, the county judges review the bail schedule and publish it for public and law enforcement use.

When setting bail amounts, public safety is always the first consideration.

The more severity the crime, the higher the bail amount.

County bail schedules will generally include bail amounts for crimes as well as crimes plus extenuating circumstances.

For example, bail schedules will indicate a bail amount for Driving Under the Influence of alcohol or drugs (known as DUI) or in some states Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), but will also include a higher bail amount for DUI with accident or DUI with injury or even higher for DUI with death.
