  1. Per Tennessee code, the purpose of bond is “to reasonably assure the appearance of the defendant [in court] while at the same time protecting the safety of the public”. The magistrate is further instructed to consider “the defendant’s prior criminal record and the likelihood that because of that record the defendant will pose a risk of danger to the community”. How many repeat offenses are necessary before our magistrates consider the offender a danger to the community? $850 in cash and the three time offender is free to drive on a revoked license once again. Tennessee Code Title 40. Criminal Procedure § 40-11-118
