On what grounds can bail be refused?

Although the Eighth Amendment protects us from excessive bail, it does not guarantee us the right to bail. This means bail can be refused for a variety of reasons. Some violent offenses are not eligible for bail, and some people are refused bail because they may be considered a flight risk or a danger to others. Ultimately, whether you get bail and the dollar amount it is set at is up to your judge’s discretion.
