Aggrevated Assault Law

I am in need of some advice for my brother which had a warrant for his arrest for aggrevated assault. He turned himself in this morning in Douglas County, Georgia. He claims self defense but hurt the *victim* pretty badly by ''knocking out 8 teeth and cuts and bruises,etc.''. There was no weapon used other than his fist. He has had 3-4 simple battery cases in Cobb County and then an additional 2 simple battery charges dropped. He has agreed once a bail is set, if one is even set, to get help for his anger. What are the chances of the judge setting bond in your professional expericene and if a bond is set, how much would you guess it would be? I feel if it were true self defense he should have defended himself enough to get away and not to the point of the given assault. He has a problem and I want to help him get help. But, I just need to know where to start with these questions. Thanks for your time.
