Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you are arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through booking, a bail amount will be decided either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If there is no bail set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you must promise to be there for your court date, and until that date you won’t be allowed to leave town.

Typically, prisoners are given time off for good behavior when they follow the rules and area a good inmate while they’re in jail.

If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will either have to return to jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you might get to move to a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you are required to pay in order to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you have to pay is determined by the seriousness of your crime. Someone will have to put up 10% of the amount that was determined in order to get out of jail. If you don’t show up for your scheduled court date, the person that bailed you out of jail will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you must call the Yell County Juvenile Detention Center or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know how much their bail is. You can also see the bail amount online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is no fun, but fortunately, it’s really easy. To start with, you have to find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If it is, you can’t get a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they won’t accept checks. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the person will be released to your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just don’t have the money, you should try a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally charge you a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and in most cases charge a minimum of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman will in most cases require that they use your assets as collateral.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail will take between 15 minutes to all day. In simple terms, the faster you post bail, the sooner you will get discharged from jail. How quickly you get discharged depends on whether or not you’ve got a cash bond amount or if a judge still needs to decide on the bail amount. For lesser charges, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you get to the end of your sentence and know the discharge date, plan to be released anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.

How To Turn Yourself In

If you have a, or if you must start a jail sentence, you really should do the right thing and turn yourself in willingly. For a warrant, report to the jail intake center, and tell someone that you think they might have an outstanding warrant for your arrest. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if they verify that you have one, you will be taken into jail custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report at the exact time and date that the sentence order lists. Ensure that you don’t show up late. Only bring necessary items when you go to jail, for example a driver’s license or your ID, prescription medication, and the copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to list information about each visitor to the jail in advance. This information will be put in a Visiting log for the requesting inmate. All visitors is required to provide acceptable photo identification. Any visitors that gets to visitation or that does not have a visting order will be turned away.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of spending time in the Yell County jail is something you wish you could avoid, eventually you will settle into the daily routine there. All inmates get a wake-up alarm at about six in the morning, and next you’ll have roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will work in the program that has been assigned to you. 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 Yell County Juvenile 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 Yell County Juvenile 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 Yell County Juvenile Detention Center could change, so check the the Yell County Juvenile Detention Center website before 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.
