Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

If you’re in jail, your primary thought is about when you get out. After booking, a bail amount is decided either by bail schedule or magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this may mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you must promise to show up for court, and until that date you will not be permitted to travel out of the county.

Usually, inmates will earn time off for good behavior when they respect the rules and area a good inmate while in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be allowed to participate in work release. You will either have to return to the jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you may get to move into a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to get out of jail until you go to court. The amount you will be required to pay depends on the crime you are charged with. You or someone you know will have to post 10 percent of the total that was set so you can get discharged from jail. If you fail to show up for your court date, the person that paid your bail will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will need to call the Mini-Cassia Criminal Justice Center. If know the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but usually, it is really easy if you have the money. First, figure out if it is a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you won’t be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they won’t accept checks. Once you have paid the bond, the person will get released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, of if you can’t pay it, you should use a bail bondsman. They usually charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and sometimes charge a minimum of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman will in these cases use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Court Information

Get A Lawyer

If you get arrested, you need to be aware that you still have rights, the most important of which is your right to request an attorney. You don’t get to make many phone calls when you get arrested, so it is important to have a friend or family member find a lawyer when you call. You’re probably asking yourself ‘do I really need an attorney?’ While you are not required to have one, a criminal lawyer will make sure you know your rights, help protect your interests and guide you through the complicated legal system that you are now faced with. The faster you get a lawyer involved with your case, the better your chances.

For more information about the benefits of and how to hire an attorney, read: How to Find an Attorney in Cassia County

Public Defender

If you’ve been arrested and don’t have the money to hire an attorney, the courts will assign you a public defender, which is a free lawyer. Also, the Public Defender Office has a number of staff such as independent investigators, experts in forensics and social workers. You should be reassured that Public Defenders are bona-fide lawyers who are admitted to the State Bar and are licensed to practice law in Idaho.

Have you or someone you know used the services of a Public Defender? Do you think that they did a good job of defending you?

Clerk of Court

A Clerk of Court is an official part of the court that maintains court records.

Fees

Court fees and costs are the charges and fees associated with your court case, such as for example filing fees, motion fees and various court charges. If you cannot afford these fees and have court appointed legal counsel or a Public Defender, you may not have to pay the fees.

Pre-Sentencing

Your pre-sentencing report is put together with background information and as much detail about the arrestee’s life history, which the magistrate judge will review and take into consideration when determining your sentence. Information and personal details will be requested from the defendant, the defendant’s family, and in some cases the victim in the crime. Keep in mind that you can request to receive your own copy of this report before sentencing, and review it and correct any mistakes.

Sentencing

After being convicted of a crime, you will be sentenced. The judge will have several different options when sentencing you, including community service and probation, to even prison or jail time. Depending on how serious your crime was, you will either be locked up immediately, or you could be given a date that you must turn yourself into jail to serve out your sentence.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of getting locked up in the Cassia County jail is no fun, eventually you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. Expect an alarm to wake up at 6:00AM, and then you’ll have roll call. Next, you will 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 Mini-Cassia Criminal Justice 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 Mini-Cassia Criminal Justice 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 funds to inmates at Mini-Cassia Criminal Justice Center might change, so you should check the the Mini-Cassia Criminal Justice Center website before you send money 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.
