Why is it that the price of a DWI is different from person to person? Does the judge decide on a day to day what is charged... same charge above but it seems to be two different prices...

None of these people have paid the price of their alleged DWI's, they have simply paid bail to be released. Bail is determined by a judge only to insure that a defendant will return for trial based on things such as ties to the community, financial capability, and their likelihood to flee the court's jurisdiction. And yes, the judge decides on a day to day and case by case basis.
