Why are people who commit crimes while they are out of jail on bond, released on bond again after re-offending?

The Oklahoma and United States Constitutions give protection against "excessive" bail. It is a rare occasion when a judge may order a defendant to be held in custody without the opportunity to be released on bond. Oklahoma law allows a judge to hold a defendant without bond in capital cases. In limited other cases a defendant may be held without bond when proof of his guilt is evident and on the grounds that no condition of release would assure the safety of the community or any person.
