Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you’re arrested and put in jail, your main thought is about getting out. After booking, a bail amount will be set by the magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you are released from jail you must agree to go to your court date, and you can’t leave town.

Usually, a prisoner in the Glynn County Detention Center will earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and act right while they are in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be allowed to participate in work release. You will have to go back to jail at the end of the day after work, or you may have the chance to sleep in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Bail is money that you are required to pay to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you have to pay is determined by the seriousness of your charges. You will need to put up 10 percent of the total set in order to get discharged from jail. If you don’t go to your court date, whoever posted your bail won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail will need to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Glynn County Detention Center website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but fortunately, it’s very simple to do. First, figure out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you will not be able to use a bail bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they won’t take checks. Once the cash bond has been paid, the prisoner will be released into your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you should try a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and in most cases have a minimum fee of $100. This will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman may request to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will get released from jail. Getting discharged may take anywhere from 15 minutes to many hours. In other words the quicker you post bail, the faster you will get discharged from jail. Also, it might depend on whether you’ve got a cash bond amount or if the judge has to figure out the bail amount. For lesser charges, you will be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have completed your jail sentence and know the date of your release, you should plan to get discharged that morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If the police have a, or if you must report to start a sentence, you should do the right thing and turn yourself into the authorities. If you have a warrant, go to the jail, in the reception area, and let them know that you think they might have a warrant out for your arrest. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if there is one, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, go down to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Ensure that you aren’t late. Be sure to only bring allowed items with you, like a driver’s license or state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and a official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

The inmate must give each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail in advance. Your visitor’s names will be entered in the log for the inmate. Each and every visitor will be required to provide acceptable photo identification. Any visitors arriving late or that does not have a visting order will not be able to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies are always changing, so it would be wise to double-check the official jail site before you visit an inmate.

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

You might be asking yourself ‘but do I really need a lawyer’ You can represent yourself if you reall want to, but, a criminal defense attorney can advise you of your rights, look after your best interests and help you through the legal system in your county. The faster you hire a lawyer to represent you and work on your situation, the better.

Keep in mind that you can ask to see a copy of your pre-sentencing report before your sentencing, so you have the opportunity to correct the mistakes.

Sentencing

If you get convicted of a crime, you will be given a sentence for your crime. The judge will have several different options when sentencing you, including community service to probation, to even incarceration in jail or prison.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of getting locked up in Glynn County Detention Center is no fun, soon you will settle into the routine that is set for you. All inmates get a wake-up alarm every morning at 6:00am, and then roll call. Then you will get breakfast. After 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 Glynn 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 Glynn 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 process for sending money to someone in jail could change, so we suggest that you review the the Glynn County Detention Center 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.
