    Answered . No the case can not simply be dropped because of the bond amount. Many times the police conduct an investigation before they decide to ask the District Attorney's Office to take the charges. Harris County has a bond schedule. An attorney can ask for the bond to be lowered especially if it is above the bond schedule.
