Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you’re arrested and put in jail, your main thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail will be set either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are are released you must agree to be there for your court date, and until that date you can’t go out of town.

Usually, prisoners at San Bernardino County Jail – Adelanto Detention Center will be given early release in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and conduct themselves properly while in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be granted work release. You will have to return to jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you may get to live in a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Your bail is money that you will be required to pay to get out of jail until you go to court. The amount you have to pay is dictated by the seriousness of your crime. You will have to put up ten percent of the total that was set in order to be released. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, whoever paid your bail will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You will need to call the San Bernardino County Jail – Adelanto Detention Center. If you have all the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they will tell you how much their bail is. You can also check their bail amount and status on the San Bernardino County Jail – Adelanto Detention Center site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is never a fun thing, but thankfully, it is easy. First of all, you need to know if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you will not be able to use a Bail Bondsman. Cash only – they will not accept a personal check. When you’ve paid bail, the prisoner will get 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 should try a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and usually have a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman will use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of getting locked up in the San Bernardino County jail is very scary, you will soon get accustomed to the daily routine. Prisoners get an alarm for wake-up at about 6:00AM, and next you’ll have roll call. Then you will get breakfast. Following breakfast you will be required to 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 San Bernardino County Jail – Adelanto 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 San Bernardino County Jail – Adelanto 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 procedure to send funds to people in jail might change, so we suggest that you double check the official San Bernardino County Jail – Adelanto Detention Center site before you send money to an inmate.

    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.
