Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you’re locked up, your primary thought is about when you get out. After you’ve been booked, your bail is decided using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If you don’t get a bail set this might mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you are required to agree to go to your court date, and until then you will not be permitted to travel out of the county.

In most cases, an inmate at Dubois County Community Corrections Center will be given time off in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while they are in jail.

If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to do work release. You will have to stay the jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you could be permitted to move into a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the courts in order to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you have to pay is determined by the seriousness of your charges. Someone will have to put up 10 percent of the total that was set so you can be released. If you don’t show up for court, the person that bailed you out of jail will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You have to call the Dubois County Community Corrections Center. If know the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will let you know the bail amount. You can also check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but usually, it is simple to do if you have the money. First of all, you need to know if it is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you won’t be able to use a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they will not accept checks. Once the cash bond has been paid, the prisoner will be discharged. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it, you might need to use a bail bondsman. They will usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and in most cases charge a minimum fee of $100. This money will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman may request to use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

Discharge Procedures

When you post bail, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged from jail can take anywhere between 10 minutes to hours or even all day long. In simple terms, the faster you can pay your bail, the faster you can get out of jail. How quickly you get discharged might depend on if you’ve been given a bond amount or if a magistrate still needs to decide on how much your bail will be. For minor charges, you will simply be booked and get released without having to post bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and are given a discharge date, you should expect to get discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If there is a, or if you have to report to start a sentence, you really should follow the rules and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, go down to the jail reception area, and tell someone that you think there may be an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order states. Be sure that you are not late to report. Only bring approved items when you turn yourself in, for example your drivers license or even state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and a official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates need to list each visitor’s name to the jail. Your visitor’s information will be put into the visitors log as an Authorized visit. Each visitor will be required to provide a photo ID when visiting. Any visitors showing up late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
The Dubois County Community Corrections Center visitation procedures can change, so it would be wise to check the jail site before you go.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

Phone calls that inmates are allowed to make from jail are with a pre-paid phone card or account, or are collect calls . These phone calls are much more expensive than regular phone calls. There is no limit to when you can make phone calls, how long you can talk, and how often you can make calls, but inmates should keep in mind lots of people want to use the phone – so you have to share. If you are disciplined for an infraction, phone privileges could be reduced or totally denied.

Court Information

Get A Lawyer

When you’ve been arrested, you need to be aware that you still have rights, the first of which is the right to request a lawyer. You won’t get many phone calls in jail, so you would be wise to have a friend or relative find a lawyer when you call them. You may be thinking ‘why do I need a lawyer?’ You can represent yourself if you reall want to, but, a criminal lawyer can advise you of your rights, help protect your best interests and help you through the complicated legal system in your county. The sooner you hire an attorney to represent you and work on your charges, the better off you’ll be.

For more information on how to find a lawyer, read: How to Find an Attorney

Public Defender

If you cannot afford an attorney, you will be given a public defender for a lawyer.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in the Dubois County jail is quite unpleasant, eventually you will settle into the daily routine there. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up at about six in the morning, and then you’ll have roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. Following breakfast you will have to work in the work program or other activity that you are assigned. 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 Dubois County Community Corrections 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 Dubois County Community Corrections 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 money to someone in jail can change, so you should review the site when 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.
