Syracuse, NY asked in Criminal Law and Civil Rights for New York

Q: what does “see gri” mean on my brothers charges it is located under his bail\bond amount. Also blv his bonds excessive.

His charges are burglary3 robbery 3 and petit larceny for stealing at rite aid he said. His bond is 25k cash 5k bail is that excessive for “shoplifting” and also under the burglary it states see gri under his bail/bond amount what would that mean. Also what if the officers wrote up his charges that way to purposely not allow him to be bailed out or let go on a misdeameanor. He isn’t harming anyone just drugs drove him to steal. Trying to find a way to help him and get him into rehab instead of jail which is where he became addicted in the first place.
