Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you’re locked up, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve been booked, bail is determined using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If you don’t get a bail set this might mean that you will either be released, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are are released you must promise to be in court on your court date, and until that date you must not travel out of the county.

In most cases, prisoners in the Bulloch County Jail will be given an early release in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and don’t cause any problems while incarcerated.

If you follow the rules, you might be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to go back to jail every day when you’re finished working, or you could be allowed to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay in order to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will be required to pay is determined by the seriousness of your charges. Someone you know will need to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total set so you can bail out of jail. If you don’t go to your court appearance, that person won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you must call the Bulloch County Jail. If know the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. You can also see the bail amount online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is no fun, but thankfully, its simple to do if you have the money. First, you have to find out if it is a “Cash Bond Only”. If this is the case, you can’t use a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail will not take a personal check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will be released to your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you might need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and usually charge a minimum charge of $100. This will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman may ask to use assets as collateral for the bond.

The intake process is made up of the following steps:

  • You will be placed in a waiting area or cell. If the jail is really busy, you will have to wait, sometimes for many hours, before you get processed.
  • The first thing you will have to to is you have to answer a bunch of questions, such as what is your full name, home address, date of birth and an emergency contact person.
  • Also, you will also be asked about your medical and mental history.
  • You will be issued an inmate number.
  • You will be fingerprinted.
  • You will have a front and profile photo taken for your mugshot.
  • Any personal property you have will be taken from you and will be stored until you are released.
  • They will let you use the phone so you can get in touch with family, friends, or bail bondsman.
  • If you are expected to be released shortly, you might get to wear your own clothes, otherwise you will be issued a jail jumpsuit.

Have you ever been booked into jail? If you have, please tell us how it happened. How long did you have to wait in the holding cell? How did the guards treat you? Do you know any secrets that will help other people that get arrested make it through jail processing?

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will get discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail takes anywhere from 10 minutes to many hours. In simple terms, the quicker you post bail, the quicker you will be released. Also, how fast you get released depends on whether or not you’ve got a bond amount or if the magistrate needs to figure out the amount of bail to be set. For minor offenses, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have completed your jail sentence and know the release date, you should plan to get discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you need to report to start a sentence, you should follow the rules and turn yourself in willingly. If you have a warrant, go to the jail intake center, and tell someone that you think there is an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, and if there is one, you will be taken into custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, go to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Ensure that you aren’t late. Make sure that you only bring required items with you, for example a driver’s license or even photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates need to list each visitor’s full name to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s names will be entered in the log for the inmate that requested the visitor. Each and every visitor is required to provide identification. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or without a visiting order will not be allowed to attend visitation.
The Bulloch County Jail visitation procedures are always changing, so it would be wise to double-check the official Bulloch County Jail jail site before you visit an inmate.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in Bulloch County Jail is something you wish you could avoid, you will soon get used to the routine that is set for you. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up at 6am, and next you’ll have roll call. Then you will get breakfast. After breakfast, you will be required 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 Bulloch 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 Bulloch 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 money to jail inmates could change, so it would be best to review the official website before you send funds 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.

  1. David says:

    I have been booked into the Bulloch county jail in Georgia, as well as the Cobb county jail in Georgia. BY FAR the Bulloch county jail is much more disorganized, and some of the workers are honestly just plain lazy. It took the same amount of time to book me into the Bulloch jail as Cobb, while the Cobb county jail easily had 50 to 60 more inmates to process in the same time period. The guards at Bulloch county jail are split about 50/50; with some being polite and nice, and the other half extremely rude and condescending.
