On a TV show recently I heard the judge say:
"Bail is set at 15 million dollars, 5 million dollar bond".
What does this mean? I am familiar with a bail amount, but is this a total of 20 million dollars in two different collateral forms payable to the court or is this simply bad writing on the show and is effectively meaningless? There was no word "and" in the sentence so left it ambiguous from my point of view.
