Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you are incarcerated, your primary thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, a bail amount will be set using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are are released you must agree to go to your court date, and you are not allowed to travel out of the county.

In most cases, inmates at Los Angeles County Jail – Twin Towers Correctional Facility are given early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and act right while they are in jail.

If you follow the rules, you may be granted work release. You will be required to go back to the jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you might be permitted to move into a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you will be required to pay 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 put up 10 percent of the total that was determined in order for you to be released. If you fail to show up for your court date, whoever paid your bail will lose that money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you need to call the Los Angeles County Jail – Twin Towers Correctional Facility. 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. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Los Angeles County Jail – Twin Towers Correctional Facility website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but usually, it is simple to do if you have the money. First, figure out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you will not be able to use a Bail Bondsman. Cash only – the jail can’t accept checks. Once the cash bond has been paid, the inmate will be released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you just can’t afford it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and sometimes have a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bail bondsman will usually require that they use your assets as collateral.

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.

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.
