Many judges take the stance that if you can afford to pay your bond then you can afford to pay your lawyer. Your financial status however is held to be unrelated to your friends and family member's ability to pay your bond or hire you an attorney. So if someone else had paid your bond, the Judge might still have appointed you an attorney.
