I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

You have the ability to speak to the prosecutor before the hearing about any reason you believe bail should not be issued or set at a high amount. That includes talking about the possibility that the person will flee or present a danger to others. But most judges do not give crime victims the right to object to bail after the amount has been set. You'd want to talk to the District Attorney's Office.
