When you or a loved one is arrested, the first court appearance will be to determine whether or not probable cause exists to detain the individual and if such does exist, to set a reasonable bond. Often times, proper consideration is not given to the defendant and an unreasonable bond is set. Florida law allows for a review of a defendant’s case to determine if bail was reasonably set in accordance with State ex rel. Crabb v. Carson, 189 So.2d 376 (Fla. App. 1 Dist., 1966).
