Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you’re incarcerated, your only thought is when and how to get out. After booking, your bail is determined by the magistrate. If there is no bail set this can mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you do bail out you are required to agree to show up for court, and in the meantime you must not go out of town.

Usually, an inmate at Crawford County Judicial Complex are given time off for good behavior if they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while locked up.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be allowed to do work release. You will either have to stay the jail each day after work, or you may be permitted to move to a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay in order to be released from jail until your trial. The amount of bail that is set is dictated by the seriousness of your charges. You will have to put up 10% of the amount set so you can get out of jail. If you miss your court date, the person that paid your bail will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you will need to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is no fun, but most of the time, it is very simple to do. First of all, you need to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you won’t be able to use the services of a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail will not take a personal check. Once you have paid the bond, the person will be released into your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it, you might need to use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and sometimes have a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If the bail is extremely high, the bail bondsman will ask to use assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Jail Policies and Procedures

Intake Procedures / Booking

The jail intake process takes you through the following steps:

  • You will be placed in a holding cell. When the jail is busy, you will have to wait, sometimes for many hours, before you get processed.
  • The first step is that you will have to answer a bunch of questions, such as what is your full legal name, your address, birth date and an emergency contact.
  • They’ll also ask about your mental and medical history.
  • You will be given an inmate number.
  • You will be fingerprinted.
  • You will have your mugshot taken.
  • All personal property will be taken from you and stored until you are discharged.
  • They will allow you to use the phone to get in touch with a family member, friend, or bail bondsman.
  • If they expect that you will make bail and be released quickly, you might be able to wear your street clothes, but if you are not expected to make bail quickly you will be issued a jail uniform.

Have you ever been arrested and gone through processing at jail? If you have, please share your experience so others can benefit from your story. How long did it take to get processed? Were you treated fairly? Do you have any secrets that could help other people that get arrested make it through the process?

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged takes anywhere from 30 minutes to many hours. In other words the quicker bail is posted, the sooner you will be freed. Also, how fast you get released depends on whether or not you’ve got a cash bond or if the magistrate still needs to determine your bail amount. For minor offenses, you will be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have completed your jail sentence and know the date of your release, you should expect to be released at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If you have a, or if you need to begin your jail sentence, it is highly recommended that you follow the law and turn yourself in willingly. For a warrant, go to the jail, in the reception area, and let them know that you think they might have an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. A record check will be run, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, they will take you into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report on the date and time that the sentence order lists. Be sure that you don’t show up late. Just bring required items when you go to jail, for example your drivers license or even photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as the sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to provide information about each visitor to the jail in advance of any visit. Your visitor’s information will go in the log for the inmate that requested the visitor. Each and every visitor has to provide identification. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or that is not an approved visitor will be turned away.
Visitation procedures at Crawford County Judicial Complex are always changing, so make sure that you check the official jail site before go to the jail to visit an inmate.

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 . These phone calls are much more expensive than phone calls made at home. Phone calls are restricted on when you can make phone calls, how long you can talk, and how often you can make calls, but you should keep in mind that every inmate wants to use the phone too, so they can call their family. If you break the rules, your ability to use the phone may be limited or cut altogether.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of getting locked up in Crawford County Judicial Complex is something you wish you could avoid, in time you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. You will get an alarm to wake up every morning at 6:00am, and then roll call. You will then have breakfast. When you finish 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 Crawford County Judicial Complex, 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 Crawford County Judicial Complex 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 money to people in jail changes, so it would be best to review the official Crawford County Judicial Complex site before send money 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.
