Hi,

I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Are you online at this time?

Expert:  Zoey_ JD replied 5 months ago.

Bail can always be reviewed and adjusted upwards or downwards based on a change of circumstances having to do with the case. So if bail was set in a reasonable amount based because the judge felt it was unlikely to be indicted, for example, but the state indicted, the change of circumstance against the defendant could properly allow a judge to raise bail.

The converse is true too. A failure to indict could be grounds for a defense attorney to ask for lower bail.
