Alabama Supreme Court raises maximum bail of $ 1.5 million for murder convicts


The Alabama Supreme Court on Friday issued a $ 1.5 million maximum bail for murder convicts in non-civil cases.

The change represents a ten-fold increase from the $ 150,000 maximum suggested bail in place before Friday’s order.

Now bail is just a suggestion for non-minor murder convicts with a range between $ 15,000 and $ 1.5 million, and an Alabama judge can still set bail at or below that range at their discretion.

The judges did not make any further changes to their recommendations:

Offenses:

SITTAL CRIMINAL: No $ 50,000 bail

Murder is $ 15,000 to $ 1,500,000

Class A offense $ 10,000 to $ 60,000

Class B felony $ 5,000 to $ 30,000

Class C felony $ 2,500 to $ 15,000

Drug-making and trafficking $ 5,000 to $ 1,500,000

Class D felony $ 1,000 to $ 10,000

Misconduct (not included elsewhere in schedule):

Class A misdemeanor $ 300 to $ 6,000

Class B fault $ 300 to $ 3,000

Class C fault $ 300 to $ 1,000

Violations are $ 300 to $ 500

Municipal-ordinance violations: $ 300 to $ 1,000

Traffic-related offenses:

DUI $ 1,000 to $ 7,500

Reckless driving $ 300 to $ 1,000

$ 300 to $ 500 speed

Other traffic violations are $ 300 to $ 500
