    NO. Bail or bond is set to insure you show up for trial. It is irrelevant to sentencing, or even being convicted.

    No, it shows you have money, and they will keep it, throw you in jail, and make you pay to be there. For as long as they can get money out of you. And then some.

    Bond means there's a guarantee you'll show up for your Court appearances.  It has NOTHING to do with the final sentencing.

    The bond is only used to ensure you show up for your next court date. It has nothing to do with your sentence.

    No, the two things are not in any way related.  The judge neither knows or cares if you have a bond.
