Bail is set by a Magistrate Judge shortly after arrest. It defines the terms of release.

Where cash bail is required, a person must generally post ten percent (10%) of the stated amount.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound effect on the criminal legal system. Among other changes, overall arrests and cases charged have been lower than prior years and those arrests that have happened tend to be for more serious offenses. Because of this, statistics about arrests, cases charged, and bail should be interpreted with caution.
