A: Maybe General Sessions Judges and Magistrates talk among themselves, but you are not going to find an official guideline to Bond amounts. Both of those are higher bonds than most, so apparently the Defendant is viewed as a major burglar. His lawyer might move to lower the amounts in each County, but he needs to be concerned about defending him. The bond amounts are not excessive.
