Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you are locked up, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, a bail amount is determined using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. In cases where no bail is set this may mean that you will either be released, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you will have to promise to be in court on your court date, and until that day you won’t be allowed to leave town.

In most cases, a prisoner will be given early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and area a good inmate while locked up.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to do work release. You will have to stay jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you may get to sleep in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Bail is money that you have to pay to get out of jail pending trial. The amount you will be required to pay depends on the seriousness of your crime. You or someone you know will have to put up 10 percent of the total that was determined in order to be released from jail. If you don’t show up for your court appearance, the person that bailed you out of jail won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will have to call the Glascock County Jail or the County Courthouse. If know the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Glascock County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never a fun thing, but in some cases, it’s really easy if you have the money. First of all, you have to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If this is the case, you won’t be able to use the services of a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they can’t accept checks. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the inmate will be released into your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you just can’t afford it, you you should hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and in most cases have a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman may ask to use assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will get discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail takes anywhere between 30 minutes to all day. In simple terms, the faster you can pay your bail, the faster you can get out of jail. How quickly you get discharged might depend on whether you’ve been given a cash bond or if the judge has to decide on the bail amount. For a minor offense, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and are given a discharge date, you should expect to get released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

In the event there is a, or if you need to report to start a sentence, it is recommended that you do the right thing and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, report to the jail reception area, and tell an officer that believe that there could be a warrant out for your arrest. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if they find one, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. If you have a jail sentence to serve, go to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Ensure that you are not late to report. Just bring things that are allowed when you go to jail, like your drivers license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as a sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that spending time in the Glascock County jail is no fun, in time you will become accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. All inmates get an alarm to wake up at about six in the morning, and next they’ll do roll call. Then you will get breakfast. Following 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 Glascock 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 Glascock 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 Glascock County Jail inmates changes, so we suggest that you review the official Glascock County Jail site when 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.
