Unfortunately, the only thing you can do is to bond him out.

His lawyer can make an application to reduce the bond at any time, but the problem is that unless there is a change of circumstances for the better with regard to his case, the judge will deny the motion. Also, whenever a defense attorney asks for bail to be reduced, the prosecutor will counter and ask that bail be increased. If the defense files a frivolous motion (no change of circumstances for the better) judges have been known to rule for the DA and increase bail.

The fact that the preliminary hearing had to be delayed because the DA had a conflict might be a good basis for an application on Friday, but until then, unless you can somehow raise the bond among your friend and family, there's nothing that you personally can do.
