Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you’re arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, bail will be set using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If no bail is set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you will have to promise to go to your court date, and until that date you are not permitted to travel out of the county.

Usually, inmates in the Mono County Jail Facility will earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and don’t cause any problems while they’re in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to participate in work release. You will have to return to jail each day when you’re finished at your job, or you may have the chance to move into a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you will be required to pay in order to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you will have to pay depends on the crime you’ve been charged with. You will have to put up 10% of the amount that was determined before you can get discharged from jail. If you miss your scheduled court date, that person will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will have to call the jail or the county courthouse. If know the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can see the bail amount online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but thankfully, it is really easy if you have the money. First, you have to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you won’t be able to use a bail bondsman. Cash only – they will not accept checks. When you’ve paid bail, the person will be released into your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you just don’t have the money, you should use a bail bondsman. They usually have a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set, and usually with a minimum fee of $100. This money will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman will use assets as collateral.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will get released from jail. Getting discharged from jail can take anywhere between 10 minutes to hours or even all day long. So, the faster you can post bail, the quicker you can get released from jail.

For a minor offense, you will be booked and get released without having to post bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and know the discharge date, you should expect to be released anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.

How To Turn Yourself In

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that getting locked up in the Mono County jail is no fun, you will soon become accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. All inmates get a wake-up alarm at about 6:00AM, and next you’ll have roll call. You will then have breakfast. After breakfast, participate in the work program that you’ve been assigned to. 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 Mono County Jail Facility, 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 Mono County Jail Facility 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 procedure to send money to people in jail is likely to change, so it would be best to review the official website when you send money to an inmate there.

    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.
