What is the cost of bail?

Bail is the face value that a judge stipulates must be paid for a prisoner's release. It is sometimes possible to pay a 'bond', which is an amount that is typically 10%-20% of the bail amount requested by the judge. This depends on the laws governing bail fees in the state where the defendant is incarcerated, the worthiness of the arrestee, the flight risk involved of them showing up on scheduled court dates, the danger to society, and the final decision of the company or person putting up the bond.
