Two Key Factors in Determining Bail Reduction:
1. FLIGHT RISK
Whether the accused is a person who is likely to flee the jurisdiction in order to avoid prosecution and conviction.
In court the flight risk factor is used when they decide whether or not to grant bail or surety bond to an individual, and it is an important factor is setting the bond amount. Courts can decide to set higher bail if the defendant has a high risk of flight.
A person's level of danger, violence, and general risk to the safety of the community is the second factor considered. in New Hampshire individuals charged with 1st Degree Murder are held until trial and are never released on bail. First Offense DWI charges, on the other hand, usually call for personal recognizance bail.
