A: This cannot be answered based on the information given. Bonds are set by Judges and there is no set amount published for the state. While some districts may have a general scale, it varies depending on which district sets the bond. And more importantly, it depends on the specific allegations, including but not limited to the nature and severity of the alleged battery (and harm done to the accuser), as well as whether the DAB is misdemeanor or felony). Additionally, recent legislation now requires some sort of cooling off period so one needs to be aware of this-----my recommendation is that you contact either a bail bondsman or (I think is preferred) contact a criminal defense attorney.
