we have court tomorrow but will the person being held get a bail?
It is up to the prosecutor to request detention. First the prosecutor will look at the report for the evaluation and determine whether the person poses a threat of dangerousness. If the hearing is the dangerousness hearing, the court will hear evidence and will determine whether the defendant should continue to be held or released on bail.

According to G.L. ch. 276, s. 58A, the Commonwealth cannot detain you for a period exceeding the 90 days "without good cause" shown. This could mean so many things, depending on the circumstances, including whether release would jeopardize the safety of any person in the community.
The Defendant should get some sort bail hearing. Are they being indicted? Why has there been such a delay? Does the Defendant have an attorney? What kind of record does this person have?
I would suggest talking to an attorney asap.
