Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you are incarcerated, your primary thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, a bail amount will be determined by a special judge called a magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are released from jail you will have to agree to show up for court, and until that day you won’t be allowed to go out of town.

Typically, a prisoner will be given early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while incarcerated.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will be required to go back to jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you could be permitted to move into a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you will have to pay is dictated by how serious your charges are. You will have to pay 10 percent of the total amount that was set before you can get discharged from jail. If you fail to show up for court, whoever put up your bail money will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail need to call the jail or the county courthouse. If know the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they will tell you how much their bail is. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Logan County 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 in some cases, it’s really easy. First, you need to know if they have a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you will not be able to get a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they can’t accept a personal check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the inmate will get released. 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 just can’t afford it, you should try a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and usually charge a minimum charge of $100. This is non-refundable and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman will in these cases use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of getting locked up in Logan County Detention Center is no fun, soon you will get accustomed to the daily routine. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up at six in the morning, and then roll call. Next, you will eat 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 Logan 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 Logan 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 procedure to send money to inmates at Logan County Detention Center could change, so we suggest that you review the official Logan County Detention Center site before you send funds 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.
