    Bonds are assessed based upon the severity of the crime, prior convictions, and flight risk (ie. ties to the community). The amounts vary depending on the circumstances. The judge basis his/her decision upon the probable cause affidavit, or police report. The strength of the prosecution's case shouldn't have any bearing on the bond amount. It's usually just the discretion of the judge.
