What Does a Judge Consider When Setting Bail?

Last week, we published a blog about bail--specifically, we looked at the purpose of bail and mechanically how it works. This week, we examine a related topic: factors a judge considers when setting bail.

What is Bail and How Does it work?

Bail is money that a court requires an individual to pay to get out of jail. The purpose of bail is to assure judges that the individual will appear for all their court hearings in a criminal case. A judge will set bail if he or she has concerns about a defendant's ability to appear for court or concerns about public safety. If an individual misses a court appearance, a judge can forfeit any bail posted.

Pesticide/Herbicide Drift Concerns in the Midwest

With organic farms and sensitive crops growing side-by-side with fields of corn and soybeans, pesticide/herbicide drift is a significant concern. Chemical drift can originate from other areas as well; golf courses, manicured lawns and landscaping, and even along roadways.
