Mohammadi was arrested on January 12 after she posted several tweets criticizing the Iranian government's treatment of its people.
She is currently being held at Qarchak Prison, located in a desert just south of Tehran. She has been permitted to call home a few times to tell her family she is okay.
Qarchak is one of two Iranian prisons the United States has sanctioned for "gross human rights violations" such as abuse, beatings, and "creating an environment for rape and murder."
Her bail has been set at 30 million tomans ($2,250), an amount that is equivalent to an annual Iranian salary.
Although her family has been able to raise the money, Mohammadi's case was elevated to a higher court, which will decide whether she will receive a temporary release.
