Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

If you’re arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, bail will be set by the magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this might mean that you will either be released, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out of jail you will have to agree to be in court on your court date, and until then you are not allowed to leave town.

Typically, a prisoner can earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and area a good inmate while they’re in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be given work release detail. You will either have to go back to the jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you might be allowed to sleep in a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you are required to pay in order to be released from jail until your court date. The amount of bail that is set depends on the seriousness of your crime. You will have to pay ten percent of the total that was determined so you can get out of jail. If you miss your court appearance, the person that paid your bail won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will need to call the Bryan County Jail. If you’ve got the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they will tell you the bail amount. You can also see the bail amount on the Bryan County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Bailing out of jail is never fun, but in some cases, it is simple to do if you have the money. First, you have to find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you will not be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. Cash only – the jail won’t accept checks. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the inmate will be released into your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you just can’t afford it, you you should hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and usually charge a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and is typically cash only. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman might request to use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

You can find a bail bondsman go to: Bail bondsman

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged from jail will take between 10 minutes to all day long. Or, simply, the faster you can pay your bail, the quicker you can get released from jail. It also depends on whether or not you have a cash bond or if a magistrate needs to figure out how much your bail will be. For a minor charge, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have completed your jail sentence and are given a release date, plan to be discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If you have a, or if you must start a jail sentence, you really should follow the rules and turn yourself in willingly. If you have a warrant, go to the jail reception area, and tell them that you think they might have a warrant for your arrest. They will do a record check, and if they find one, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report on the date and time that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Ensure that you are not late to report. Be sure to only bring required items when you go, for example your drivers license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as a sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you need to provide each visitor’s name to the jail. Your visitor’s names will be put in a log of approved visitors as an authorized visitor. Every visitor must provide identification. Any visitors that gets to visitation or that is not an approved visitor will not be able to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies change often, so we suggest that you double-check the jail site before you try to visit an inmate.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are with a pre-paid phone card or account, or are collect calls . These phone calls are much more costly than phone calls made outside of jail. Phone calls are restricted on when you can make phone calls, how long you can talk, and how often you can make calls, but inmates must keep in mind lots of people want to use the phone – so you have to share. If you break the rules, phone calls may be limited or eliminated altogether.

Phone Number: (912)653-3800

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of getting locked up in Bryan County Jail is very scary, eventually you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. You should expect a wake-up alarm at about six in the morning, and then roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. After breakfast, you will 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 Bryan 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 Bryan 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 rules for sending funds to people in jail changes, so be sure to double check the official Bryan County Jail site before you send any funds.

    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.
