Can I get the bond reduced?

Yes.

 

It's called a bond reduction hearing. Your lawyer can get a bond reduction hearing if the initial bond is too high.

 

You are entitled to a “reasonable bond”. Reasonable bond means reasonable for you, not an “average” or “normal” defendant.

 

At the hearing you have to convince the judge that you are not a risk of flight, have sufficient ties to the community to assure your appearance, not a danger to the community, and do not present continuing danger to the victim.

 

You only have one chance to reduce bond.
