What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Florida

A buddy of mine went Pro Se on a plethora of charges, most felonies. He filed a motion to suppress at the circuit level and surprisingly it was granted. However, he is still in custody despite the state attorney's admission that without that evidence she will not be able to sustain a conviction. She is appealing to the appellate court. His bond is excessively high.
Should he file a motion to dismiss at this point? Can he or does he have to wait for a final judgment? A motion to reduce bond?
If he requests that the court ROR him pending the outcome, since he has spent a substantial amount of time incarcerated, is it likely it will be granted?
Essentially, how can we get him out without spending about $12,000 with a bondsmen?

thank you

He should at last move for bond reduction. Whatever else might happen depends on the appeal and what and when the next court appearance is supposed to be.
