DearCustomer- The bond is set at the discretion of the court by the judge. The defense attorney and DA are permitted to be heard as to their recommendations however the final decision rests with the judge. There is noting illegal in raising a bond amount. The defense attorney can appeal this to the court but judges are given wide discretion in setting bond.

Obviously I have no way to know that from this website. You would have to ask the defense attorney to obtain an explanation from the court.
