Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you are incarcerated, your primary thought is about how to get out. After booking, bail will be decided by the magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either be released, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are released from jail you will have to promise to be there for your court date, and until that date you are required not to leave town.

Typically, a prisoner can earn time off for good behavior if they respect the rules and don’t cause any problems while in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be granted work release. Either you will have to stay jail at the end of the day when you’re finished at your job, or you could have the chance to live in a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the courts to get out of jail until you go to court. The amount of bail that is set all depends on the seriousness of your crime. Someone you know will need to put up 10 percent of the total amount that was set in order to be released from jail. If you miss your court date, whoever put up your bail money won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will have to call the Levy County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the Levy County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never fun, but in some cases, it’s really easy. First of all, you have to find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you won’t be able to get a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail will not accept a check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the inmate will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually have a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and in most cases charge a minimum charge of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman will ask to use your assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Discharge Procedures

When you post bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged may take between 10 minutes to hours or even all day long. In simple terms, the quicker bail is posted, the faster you will get discharged from jail. How quickly you get discharged will depend on whether or not you have a cash bond amount or if a judge needs to figure out your bail amount. For minor offenses, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have served out your jail sentence and are given a release date, plan to get discharged anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.

How To Turn Yourself In

If the police have a, or if you need to begin your jail sentence, you really should do the right thing and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, go down to the jail, and tell an officer that think that there is a warrant out for your arrest. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if so, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. If it is for a jail sentence, report to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Be sure that you don’t show up late. Just bring necessary items when you go, for example your drivers license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the official sentencing order.

The inmate must list the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitors will be entered in a log of approved visitors as an approved visitor.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of being incarcerated in the Levy County jail is quite unpleasant, in time you will settle into the daily routine there. Expect a wake-up alarm at six in the morning, and then you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will have breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will have to work in the work program or other activity that you are assigned. 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 Levy 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 Levy 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 Levy County Jail inmates is likely to change, so review the the Levy County Jail 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.
