Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you are in jail, your main thought is about getting out. After you’ve been booked, bail will be determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If no bail is 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 you must promise to show up for court, and until that date you can’t leave town.

In most cases, an inmate can earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and area a good inmate while incarcerated.

If you follow the rules, you may be granted work release. You will have to go back to jail at the end of the day when you’re finished at your job, or you may get to move to a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you will be required to pay to get out of jail until you go to court. Your bail amount depends on the seriousness of your crime. You will need to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total that was set in order to bail out of jail. If you don’t show up for your scheduled court date, the person that bailed you out of jail won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You must call the Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Adult Detention Facility. If you’ve got the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know the bail amount. You can also check their bail amount and status online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but most of the time, it’s simple to do if you have the money. To start with, you need to know if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you can’t use a Bail Bondsman. Cash only – the jail will not take a personal check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the inmate will be released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and in most cases have a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and has to be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman might ask to use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that spending time in the Twin Falls County jail is very scary, you will soon get used to the routine that is set for you in jail. All inmates get a wake-up alarm each morning at 6:00am, and then roll call. You will then have breakfast. Following 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 Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Adult Detention Facility, 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 Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Adult Detention Facility 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 procedure to send money to people in jail might change, so be sure to review the official website when you send money 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.
