A Judge considers certain bond factors when deciding to release a person on bond or bail. These bond factors were determined by the Georgia Supreme Court in a 1993 case called, Ayala v. State, and are sometimes referred to as the “Ayala Bond Factors.”
The trial court may release a person on bail if the court finds the person:
OCGA § 17-6-1 (e). The trial court must explain its reasons for denying bond to assist review on appeal.
