    Answered . Most counties have a standard bond schedule set by offense level and criminal history. Of course, this can be raised or lowered by the judge in exceptional circumstances upon a motion by an attorney on either side.

    Answered . I looked through Bexar County arrests for State Jail Felony Welfare Fraud cases since the beginning of 2012. I found 9 cases showing bond amounts of $2500, $5000, $5000, $5000, $10000, $10000, $15000, $15000 and $20000. The arrest records don't indicate whether these are pretrial cases or probation cases (motion to revoke), and whether there is negative bond history.
    The bond status on your case will also depend on whether you have already been on bond on the case, and whether you are on probation. We can give you more detailed information at no charge if you will call us.
