(b) If the court finds, based on the results of the Indiana pretrial risk assessment system (if available) and other relevant factors, that an arrestee does not present a substantial risk of flight or danger to the arrestee or others, the court shall consider releasing the arrestee without money bail or surety, subject to restrictions and conditions as determined by the court, unless one (1) or more of the following apply:

(1) The arrestee is charged with murder or treason.

(2) The arrestee is on pretrial release not related to the incident that is the basis for the present arrest.
