How do judges set bail?
I was just paying attention to the George Zimmerman Case recently and just wondered how exactly does a judge set bail; I know it's not a random process.
There are variables, such as priors, the nature of the crime and flight risk. If you have any of these instances or conditions, your bail will be higher. People who commit certain crimes, like first degree murder charges, will often be denied bail all together, and that can also happen for large numbers of priors, especially if the current charge is in the same category as the priors. Then again, sometimes the judge just won't like you, but he'll give you an official reason why your bail is so high.
