Statewide bail schedule.

Bill Subjects

Statewide Bail Schedule.


Existing law requires superior court judges in each county to prepare, adopt, and annually revise a uniform countywide schedule of bail for all bailable felony offenses, all misdemeanor offenses, and all infractions, except Vehicle Code infractions. Existing law requires the countywide bail schedule to contain a list of offenses and the amounts of bail applicable for each, as the judges determine to be appropriate. This bill would require the Judicial Council to prepare, adopt, and annually revise a statewide bail schedule for all bailable felony offenses and for all misdemeanor and infraction offenses except Vehicle Code infractions, as specified. This bill would require that bail for a person charged with 2 or more offenses be the amount computed under the bail schedule for the charge having the highest amount of bail, except as provided.
