Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you’re arrested and put in jail, your main thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail amount will be determined by the magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you must promise to go to your court date, and you will not be permitted to travel out of the county.

Usually, inmates are given time off in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and act right while in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to do work release. You will either have to stay the jail at the end of the day after work, or you could have the chance to live in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system to get out of jail until your court date. The amount of bail that is set is determined by how serious your crime is. Someone you know will need to put up 10 percent of the total set in order to be released. If you miss your court appearance, whoever posted your bail will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you have to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you have all the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but most of the time, it’s very simple to do. First, you have to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond. If it is, you can’t use a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail won’t accept a personal check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the prisoner will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you should use a bail bondsman. They generally charge a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and sometimes have a minimum of $100. This will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman will in most cases use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of spending time in the Stone County jail is no fun, eventually you will settle into the routine that is set for you. All inmates get an alarm to wake up at 6:00am, and next they’ll do roll call. You will then get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will have to work 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 Stone County Jail And Detention Center, 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 Stone County Jail And Detention Center 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 inmates at Stone County Jail And Detention Center changes, so double check the official Stone County Jail And Detention Center site when you send any money.

    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.

    My husband broke his wrist and two ribs before going to stone county Arkansas jail. His first night there he bumped his wrist against the metal bunk, by the way they put him on top bunk, causing a severe rebrake and his forearm the bone twisted horrible. Every person involved with mountain view jail refused him medical attention. So constitutional rights to inmates state no refusal of medical issues that cause severe pain…cruel….and any issue that may cause permanant pain!!!!!!!!!! Hello???? This involves two constitutional rights being broken.
