What information does the judge need to apply Gladue to bail hearings?

The judge does not need the same amount of information about your personal life.

At a bail hearing, the judge applies Gladue to decide what options can be used instead of putting you in jail while you wait for your next court date. The judge needs a plan for what will happen while you are out on bail.
