DWI - charges ; &$350/$500/$750 for bail on three defendants ; why the disparity in bail amount ? DWI is a serious charge ; where is the consistency in bail amounts . $750 for all would be the deterrent in DWI incidents ; is Justice court ; let's make a deal ? Put some teeth in DWI driving ... Same bail of everyone to start .. Seems obvious to me. Martin Drew
