What is a bail hearing?
When someone is arrested and charged with a criminal offence , they may be released if they sign a form saying they promise to attend court on the date given to them by the police.
If the police do not release them, the person who has been charged (who is called the accused) will be taken to court where a decision to release them or not will be made. In some cases, a bail hearing, which is like a short trial, is held and a judge or a justice of the peace decides whether the accused will get out on bail.

Um die Kautionshöhe festzusetzen, müsste ein Richter wohl kaum eine Verhandlung anberaumen. Nein, es geht um eine Haftprüfung, bei der auch die Möglichkeit einer Freilassung gegen Kaution im Raum steht.
