Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you are arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve been booked, a bail amount is set by the magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are released from jail you must agree to show up for court, and until then you are not allowed to go out of town.

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

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be allowed to do work release. You will be required to stay jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you might get to live in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Your bail is money that you are required to pay to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you have to pay is dictated by the crime you’ve been charged with. You will need to pay 10 percent of the total amount that was set in order to be released from jail. If you don’t show up for court, the person that bailed you out of jail won’t get their 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 know the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they will let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the Cass County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but usually, its really easy. First of all, you have to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you will not be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail will not accept a personal check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the prisoner will get released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and sometimes with a minimum fee of $100. This is non-refundable and is typically cash only. If bail is very large, the bondsman might require that they use assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of being incarcerated in the Cass County jail is quite unpleasant, soon you will settle into the routine that is set for you in jail. Prisoners get an alarm to wake up at 6am, and then you’ll have roll call. You will then have breakfast. Following 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 Cass 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 Cass 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 procedure to send money to jail inmates might change, so it would be best to check the official website before 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.
