Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you are in jail, your main thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail will be decided either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If no bail is set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out of jail you will have to agree to be there for your court date, and in the meantime you won’t be allowed to travel out of the county.

Usually, prisoners at Fremont County Detention Center will earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and conduct themselves properly while they’re in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be given work release detail. Either you will have to go back to the jail each day when you’re finished at your job, or you may be allowed to sleep in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you will be required to pay in order to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will have to pay is determined by the crime you are charged with. Someone will have to pay to the courts ten percent of the total that was determined before you can be released. If you don’t go to your court date, the person that paid your bail will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will need to call the Fremont County Detention Center or the County Courthouse. If know the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know the bail amount. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Fremont County Detention Center 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, its simple to do if you have the money. To start with, you have to find out if it is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you will not be able to use the services of a bondsman. Cash only – the jail can’t take a personal check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the inmate will be released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you can’t afford it, you might need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually charge a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and usually have a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman will in these cases request to use your assets as collateral for the bond.

Speak Your Mind

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged from jail may take anywhere between 10 minutes to all day long. In other words the quicker you post bail, the faster you will be freed. How quickly you get discharged will depend on whether or not you’ve been given a bond amount or if the judge has to determine how much your bail will be. For minor charges, you will be booked and get released without having to post bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and know the release date, you should expect to get released that morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

In the event there is a, or if you have to start your sentence, it is recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go to the jail intake center, and tell someone that you think there is 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, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. When reporting to serve a sentence, report to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order states. Make sure that you aren’t late. Be sure to only bring required items when you turn yourself in, such as your drivers license or even your ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and a official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to give each visitor’s full name to the jail in advance of any visit. Your visitor’s information will be entered into a log of visitors as an authorized visitor. Each visitor will be required to provide a photo ID when visiting. Anyone that gets to visitation or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
Visitation procedures can change, so we suggest that you double-check the official jail site before you try to go to visitation.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are collect calls or through a pre-paid phone account . Jail phone calls are generally more expensive than phone calls made outside of jail.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that spending time in Fremont County Detention Center is very scary, in time you will settle into the routine that is set for you. You should expect a wake-up alarm at 6:00am, and next they’ll do roll call. After roll call 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 Fremont County 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 Fremont County 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 process for sending funds to someone in jail might change, so be sure to double check 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.
