Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

If you’re in jail, your main thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail amount will be set either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If no bail is set this may mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are released from jail you must agree to show up for court, and until that date you will not be permitted to leave the area.

Usually, prisoners will earn an early release in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and act right while they are in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to do work release. You will be required to return to jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you might be permitted to live in a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Your bail is money that you have to pay to the courts in order to be released from jail until your trial. Your bail amount depends on the crime you’ve been charged with. Someone will have to post ten percent of the total that was determined in order to be released. If you don’t show up for your scheduled court date, whoever put up your bail money will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail need to call the Sevier County Jail. If you’ve got the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Sevier County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but in some cases, it is easy if you have the money. To start with, find out if they have a Cash Only Bond. If so, you won’t be able to use a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they will not accept a personal check. Once you have paid the bond, the inmate will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually have a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and sometimes with a minimum of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman will in these cases ask to use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail takes anywhere from 30 minutes to many hours. In other words the quicker you post bail, the faster you will be freed. How quickly you get discharged will depend on whether you’ve been given a cash bond or if the judge still needs to decide on the amount of bail to be set. For a minor offense, you will get booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have served your sentence and are given a date of your release, you should expect to get discharged that morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you have to start your sentence, it is highly recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, go to the jail, in the reception area, and tell someone that believe that there could be an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, and if so, they will take you into custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, report to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order lists. Be very careful that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Just bring necessary items when you go to jail, such as your drivers license or your ID, prescription medication, as well as the copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates must list each visitor’s full name to the jail. Your visitor’s information will go into the visitors log for the inmate. Each visitor will be required to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Anyone that gets to visitation or that does not have a visting order will be turned away.
Visitation procedures at Sevier County Jail are always changing, so it would be wise to visit the official site before you try to visit an inmate.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are made through a jail approved pre-paid phone account or phone card . Jail phone calls are much more costly than phone calls made outside of jail. There is no limit to when and how often you can use the phone, but inmates must keep in mind that every inmate wants to use the phone too, so they can call their family. If you break the rules, an inmate’s ability to use the phone might get cut back or totally denied.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in Sevier County Jail is no fun, soon you will settle into the daily routine there. All inmates get a wake-up alarm each morning at 6am, and then you’ll have roll call. Then you will eat breakfast. Following breakfast participate in the work program or other activity that you are assigned. This could be working in the kitchen, laundry, or some sort of manufacturing job. While this may seem tedious, it may help you when you leave jail, as you are gaining experience in a certain field of work. Other inmates go to school, while some take part in mandated treatment programs. After lunch, there will be another roll call, then back to work. Your evening will be spent either in your cell or a common room. During this time dinner is served and you will be expected to take a shower. After another roll call, it’s lights out. Even though you will be confined to your cell, there may be enough light to read or write letters. Then again, most inmates welcome lights out, and try to get as much sleep as they can.

    Most people are frightened at the idea of jail because they don’t know what to expect. If you have spent any time in Sevier County Jail, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.

    Dress Code

    When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Sevier County Jail uniform. This is normally a jumpsuit or scrubs. Of note to anyone visiting an inmate – you must be properly dressed. Any clothing considered inappropriate will not be permitted.

    How To Send Money to an Inmate

    You will have your own ‘bank account’ while in jail. This money is used to purchase items from the Commissary. Family and friends can deposit money into this account for you, and any money you earn while in prison will also be deposited into your account. Outside money can be paid in to your account via a money order, cash or check. If someone sends a check or money order, make sure that they write your inmate ID on it. The maximum amount you are allowed in your account is $290 per month.

    The process for sending money to jail inmates can change, so you should review the official website when you send any funds.

    Commissary

    The commissary is the jail store. You can purchase a number of things here, such as toiletries, snacks and writing supplies. Bear in mind that you will probably want to use the commissary daily, and any infractions will get that privilege taken away from you.

    Inmate Medications

    If you are on any type of prescription medication, you will be allowed to continue taking it while in jail. When you are first processed, you will be asked what medication you take. You will then be referred to the jail nurse or doctor who will be in charge of monitoring your health and prescribing your medication.

    Meals

    You will get three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner. As expected, they are very basic, but healthy. A typical breakfast might be cereal, toast, coffee and fruit. Lunch might be spaghetti, salad, bread and milk. Dinner could be chicken casserole, rice, vegetables, dessert and milk. Contrary to popular belief, prison food has greatly improved over the years, and you might find that it’s not much different from what you would eat at home.

    Pods / The Yard

    The jail is designed in a ‘pod’ layout, with self contained housing arranged around an outdoor yard. Each pod has a central control station and a common room, and the inmates take turns in using the yard. The jail is designed this way to keep certain inmates together, and others away from the general population.

    Gangs

    As with life in general, gangs are a part of prison life. Obviously it is best to avoid becoming a part of this environment as it will only lead to trouble. When you first enter prison, you might find yourself being ‘primed’ to join a gang, or worse, you might get their attention in a negative way. The best thing to do is keep your head down and don’t get involved.
