A: The purpose of bond is to ensure you make your future court dates. Bond is set depending on your ties to the community and danger to community. Any defendant may request a reduction in bond upon a showing of good cause.

If your purpose for getting a reduction is so you can open a bar on the victims home town, you are likely to be denied.
