Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you are in jail, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail amount is determined either by bail schedule or magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this might mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are are released you must agree to be in court on your court date, and until then you can’t leave the area.

Typically, inmates will be given 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 prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. Either you will have to go back to the jail at the end of the day after work, or you might have the chance to sleep in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you have to pay all depends on the crime you are charged with. Someone will have to post 10 percent of the total that was set in order to be released. If you don’t go to court, the person that paid your bail won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will have to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know what their bail is set at. You can also see the bail amount on the Treutlen County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but in some cases, it is easy if you have the money. To start with, you have to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you will not be able to get a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they won’t take a check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the prisoner will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you just don’t have the money, you should use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and in most cases have a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman will use your assets as collateral for the bond.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of spending time in the Treutlen County jail is something you wish you could avoid, you will soon settle into the daily routine. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up every morning at 6:00am, and next they’ll do roll call. You will then eat breakfast. Following breakfast you will have to 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 Treutlen 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 Treutlen 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 process for sending funds to inmates at Treutlen County Jail might change, so it would be best to review the the Treutlen County Jail website when you send funds to an inmate.

    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.
