Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you are incarcerated, your primary thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through booking, bail is determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If there is no bail set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you will have to promise to go to your court date, and you will not be permitted to leave the county.

Usually, prisoners can earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while they are in jail.

If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to stay jail each day when you’re finished at your job, or you may be allowed to move into a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you have to pay in order to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you will be required to pay all depends on how serious your crime is. You will have to pay 10 percent of the total set so you can be released. If you miss your scheduled court date, that person will lose that money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you have to call the jail. If you have all the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they will tell you what their bail is set at. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Pulaski County Detention Center site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but thankfully, it is really easy if you have the money. First of all, you need to find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you can’t use the services of a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail will not accept a check. Once you have paid the bond, the prisoner will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. They generally have a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and usually charge a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and must be paid in cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bondsman will request to use your personal assets as collateral.

  • You’ll be given an inmate ID.
  • You will get fingerprinted.
  • You will get your mugshot taken.

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. This process can take from 30 minutes to quite a few hours. In other words the quicker you post bail, the faster you will get discharged from jail. Also, it will depend on whether you have a cash bond amount or if a judge still needs to determine how much to set your bail at. For lesser charges, you will simply be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have completed your jail sentence and have a discharge date, plan to get discharged between 9am and noon.

How To Turn Yourself In

If there is a, or if you need to begin your jail sentence, it is highly recommended that you follow the rules and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go down to the jail processing area, and tell the intake officer that you think there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest. A record check will be run, and if they find one, you will be taken into custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, report at the exact time and date that the sentence order states. Be very careful that you don’t show up late. Make sure that you only bring allowed items when you go to jail, like your drivers license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, and the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

The inmate need to give each visitor’s full name to the jail before anyone can visit them. Your visitors will be put in a log of visitors for the requesting inmate. All visitors will have to provide proof of identification. Any visitors showing up late or that does not have a visting order will be turned away.
Visitation procedures frequently change, so double-check the official Pulaski County Detention Center jail site before you try to go to visitation.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are made through a jail approved pre-paid phone account or phone card . Calls made in jail are generally pricier than phone calls made at home. Phone calls are restricted on how often you can use the phone, but inmates should keep in mind that every inmate wants to use the phone too, so they can call their family. If you break the jail rules, phone calls might get reduced or eliminated altogether.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of serving a jail sentence in the Pulaski County jail is very scary, soon you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. Prisoners get an alarm to wake up at about 6:00 AM, and then roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. After breakfast, you will work 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 Pulaski 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 Pulaski 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 rules for sending money to Pulaski County Detention Center inmates could change, so review the official website before send funds 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.
