Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you are arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail is set either by bail schedule or magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you must agree to show up for court, and you won’t be permitted to leave the county.

Usually, an inmate at Mcintosh County Detention Center will be given time off for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and area a good inmate while in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be given work release detail. You will have to stay jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you could have the chance to sleep in a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Your bail is money that you have to pay to the court system in order to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you have to pay is determined by the crime you’ve been charged with. You will have to put up 10 percent of the total amount that was set in order to get discharged from jail. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, the person that bailed you out of jail will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You will have to call the Mcintosh County Detention Center. If you have all the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can see the bail amount on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but fortunately, it is really easy. To start with, you need to know if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If this is the case, you will not be able to get a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail won’t take a personal check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will be released into 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 can’t afford it yourself, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. They usually charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and in most cases charge a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and has to be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman will in most cases request to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Discharge Procedures

Also, how fast you get released depends on whether or not you’ve got a cash bond or if the judge has to decide on how much your bail will be. For a minor charge, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and have a discharge date, expect to be released that morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

out against you, or if you must begin your jail sentence, you should do the right thing and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, report to the jail processing area, and tell someone that you think there is a warrant out for your arrest. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if you do, they will take you into custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, go to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Ensure that you don’t show up late. Just bring required items when you go to jail, such as your drivers license or even photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, and a copy of the sentencing order.

Court Information

Get A Lawyer

If you have been arrested, you have rights, one of these being the right to request an attorney. You don’t get to make many phone calls when you get arrested, so it is important to get a friend or family member to locate a lawyer when you call them. You’re probably asking yourself ‘but do I really need an attorney’ While you are not required to have one, a criminal defense lawyer can advise you of your rights, help protect your interests and help you navigate the legal system that you are now faced with. The quicker you get an attorney working on your charges, the better.

For more info on this, go to: How to Find an Attorney

Public Defender

If you need an attorney, but can’t afford an attorney, the courts will assign you a public defender, which is a free lawyer. Also, the Public Defender has a number of staff such as investigators, experts in forensics as well as social workers. You will be reassured to know that Public Defenders are actual attorneys, members of the State Bar and are legally licensed to practice law in Georgia.

Remember you are able to request to have your own copy of this report before your sentencing, so you have the opportunity to correct any inaccurate information.

Sentencing

If you get convicted of a crime, you will be given a sentence for your crime. There are several different options for sentencing, including community service, house arrest, and probation, to prison or jail time.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in Mcintosh County Detention Center is quite unpleasant, soon you will settle into the daily routine. You should expect a wake-up alarm every morning at six in the morning, and then you’ll have roll call. You will then get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast participate in the work program that you’ve been assigned to. 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 Mcintosh 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 Mcintosh 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 inmates at Mcintosh County Detention Center is likely to change, so we suggest that you visit the official Mcintosh County Detention Center site before send money to someone in jail 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.
