Evading Arrest

Evading usually isn’t considered a morally wrong offense or involves a victim. A bail bond amount for this charge will be closer to $3,000-$5,000. It is enhanced to a state jail felony when previously convicted or when evading in a vehicle, putting it closer to an $8,000 bail bond amount. If someone has been convicted of this offense as a state jail felony, or someone is injured while evading, it is enhanced to a 3rd degree felony with a $10K bond. If someone dies, it becomes a 2nd degree felony, with a minimum bail bond of $20K.
