How Much Bail for a Crime?

There's no fixed amount for bail. The amount for a felony, for instance, can be influenced by other factors like shots fired, perpetration with a gang, and prior convictions. For Los Angeles County, $1 million is the highest amount of additional bail possible for an individual factor. It could be achieved by:

·         Discharging a firearm, causing great bodily injury (GBI) or death
·         Having two or more violent or serious felonies on record, in addition to the violent or serious felony slapped on the individual right now
·         Committing an offense that carries a life sentence

You can still, however, get a rough estimate of how much it will cost you using the presumptive bail figure. You can find this in the Superior Court of California's annual felony bail schedule, which you can open from the court website. Below are some felonies and their respective bail amounts.

·         $100,000 for bribing or threatening the life of a judge, juror, or referee
·         $50,000 for DUI without gross negligence ($100,000 with gross negligence)
·         $100,000 for human trafficking ($150,000 if victim is a minor)
·         $100,000 for rape ($200,000 if victim is under 18, $250,000 if victim is under 14)
·         $35,000 for indecent exposure
·         $50,000 for residential burglary ($20,000 for others)
·         $20,000 for dog fighting
·         $150,000 for stalking
