Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you are arrested and put in jail, your main thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail is decided either by bail schedule or magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are are released you are required to promise to be there for your court date, and until then you won’t be allowed to leave the county.

Usually, inmates in the Crowley County Jail are given early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while locked up.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be given work release detail. You will be required to stay the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished at your job, or you might be allowed to move to a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Bail is money that you have to pay to the court system to get out of jail until your trial. The amount you have to pay is determined by the seriousness of your charges. You will have to post 10% of the amount that was determined so you can be released from jail. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, whoever paid your bail will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You must call the jail. If you’ve got the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they will tell you what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but most of the time, it is really easy. First of all, find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you will not be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they will not accept checks. Once you have paid the bond, the prisoner 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 their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should try a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and sometimes with a minimum of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and has to be paid in cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bail bondsman will usually ask to use your personal assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Bail Schedule

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged will take from 30 minutes to all day long. Or, simply, the quicker you post bail, the quicker you will get let go. Also, it might depend on whether you’ve been given a cash bond or if a magistrate must figure out how much to set your bail at. For a minor charge, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you get to the end of your sentence and know the discharge date, you should expect to get discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you must report to start a sentence, it is recommended that you follow the law and turn yourself in willingly. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go down to the jail processing area, and tell someone that you think they might have a warrant out for your arrest. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, and if they find one, you will be taken into jail custody. If it is for a jail sentence, report to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order requires you to. Ensure that you don’t show up late. Make sure that you only bring required items when you go, like your drivers license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as the sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to provide the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail before anyone can visit them. This information will go into a Visiting log for the requesting inmate. Each visitor is required to provide a photo ID when visiting. Visitors arriving late or without a visiting order will be turned away.
Jail visitation policies change often, so it would be wise to check the official Crowley County Jail jail site before go to the jail to visit an inmate.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that getting locked up in Crowley County Jail is something you wish you could avoid, soon you will get used to the routine that is set for you in jail. Inmates get an alarm to wake up every morning at 6:00AM, and then roll call. Next, you will have breakfast. After breakfast, you will work 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 Crowley 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 Crowley 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 procedure to send money to Crowley County Jail inmates changes, so double check the official website 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.
