Who is entitled to bond?

In every case and application for bond can filed; however, if a Judge grants it is a different story.  For most initial offenses, an accused is entitled to bond. There are few exceptions such as capital murder. A court may also hold a bond "insufficient" if there are new alleged offenses while on bond or the state proves the accused has violated a condition of bond. For probation revocations, an individual on deferred adjudication is entitled to bond while and individual on "straight" probation is not entitled to bond (although a motion to set bond can still be an option).
