Seriously? $15,000 bail.

Is that the normal bail for DUI?
I got this from www.BayAreaDefenseGuide.com:
Quote:
California DUI arrestees are sometimes required to post bail even for misdemeanor DUI arrests. A judge is more likely to require that the accused post bail if he or she refused to submit to chemical testing, was involved in a accident causing injury, or had a blood alcohol content (BAC) measured as .10 or greater.

...

Bail for felony driving under the influence arrests is typically set at $25,000 or more.
So it sounds like he got off easy.
