Providing False Information in Bail Application- Any person who intentionally provides false or misleading material information or intentionally omits material information in connection with an application for bail or for modification of bail is guilty of a misdemeanor or felony which is one degree less than that of the crime charged for which bail is sought, but which in no event is greater than a third-degree felony, punishable by imprisonment of up to 5 years, and/or fines of up to $5,000.
How this works is that if you intentionally provide false information in your bail application for your charge of a first-degree felony such as aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, then you would be guilty of a second-degree felony for the act of intentionally providing the false information on your bail application and may be punished by imprisonment of up to 15 years, and/or fines of up to $10,000.
