The judge has the discretion to determine the amount of bail. There is not necessarily an automatic bail amount. Similarly, the court may deny bail if it feels it is warranted. In your boyfriend's case, if the court determines that he may be released on bail, you or a bond company will be permitted to post his bail. Finally, sentencing is separate from the bail issue. Your boyfriend won't be sentenced unless he is convicted after a trial or pursuant to a plea, which is several stages later in the criminal process and well after the bail hearing.
