Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you are arrested and put in jail, your main thought is about getting out. After you’ve been booked, your bail amount is set using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. In cases where no bail is set this may mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are released from jail you will have to promise to be there for your court date, and until then you won’t be permitted to leave town.

Typically, a prisoner will earn an early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and area a good inmate while incarcerated.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. You will be required to go back to the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished at your job, or you could be allowed to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you have to pay to the court system to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you will be required to pay is determined by how serious your crime is. Someone will have to pay to the courts 10% of the amount set in order for you to bail out of jail. If you don’t go to court, the person that paid your bail won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You will need to call the jail. If know the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they will tell you what their bail is set at. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Conejos County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but fortunately, its easy if you have the money. First of all, you have to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If this is the case, you won’t be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they won’t accept a check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the person will be released to your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will generally charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and in most cases with a minimum charge of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman might ask to use your personal 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 Conejos County jail is quite unpleasant, eventually you will get used to the daily routine. You will get a wake-up alarm every morning at 6:00am, and then you’ll have roll call. Next, you will have 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 Conejos County Jail, 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 Conejos County Jail 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 funds to jail inmates might change, so check the official website before 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.
