MONETARY PARAMETERS OF BAIL BONDS IN IOWA
In theory, the specific monetary amount of a Bail Bond directly reflects a court's determination of the amount of cash or surety necessary to insure that a particular defendant will appear before that court at a predetermined date and time to face the all applicable indictments. Although there is a certain amount of flexibility in the court's determination of the appropriate bond amount for a particular individual in a specific case, courts in Iowa tend to follow an established bail bond fee schedule that conforms to the class of criminal code of conduct severity scale. In accordance with this fee schedule, the basic bond amounts coincide with the criminal code structure, as follows:

Felony, Class A Murder No Bond
Felony, Class A Arson, Kidnapping $32,500 - $130,000
Felony, Class C Willful Injury, Burglary-2nd $13,000
