Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you’re in jail, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail is decided using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. In cases where no bail is set this may mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you are required to agree to show up for court, and until that day you won’t be permitted to leave town.

Typically, inmates will earn time off in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and act right while in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to stay the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished working, or you could have the chance to sleep in a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay in order to be released from jail until your trial. The amount of bail that is set depends on the seriousness of your charges. You will need to post ten percent of the total that was set so you can be released from jail. If you miss your court date, that person 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 Floyd County Corrections. If you’ve got the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you the bail amount. You can also check their bail amount and status online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but thankfully, it’s very simple to do. First of all, you need to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you can’t use a bail bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they will not take checks. Once you have paid the bond, the person will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you just can’t afford it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and usually with a minimum charge of $100. This will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bail bondsman will in most cases request to use assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. The discharge process takes between 15 minutes to all day. In other words the quicker bail is posted, the sooner you can get released from jail. Also, how fast you get released will depend on whether or not you have a bond amount or if the magistrate must determine your bail amount. For minor charges, you will be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and know the discharge date, you should plan to be discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

warrant out for your arrest, or if you must start your sentence, it is recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself into the authorities. If it is for a warrant, go to the jail, in the reception area, and tell an officer that you think they might have an outstanding warrant for your arrest. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if they find one, they will take you into custody. If it is for a jail sentence, go down to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order states. Ensure that you are not late to report. Be sure to only bring approved items when you go to jail, like your drivers license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

The inmate need to list information about each visitor to the jail in advance of any visit. This information will go into a log of visitors as an authorized visitor. Every visitor must provide proof of identification. Any visitors showing up late or that is not on the visitation list will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures frequently change, so you should double-check the official Floyd County Corrections jail site before you try to visit an inmate.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in Floyd County Corrections is quite unpleasant, eventually you will get used to the routine that is set for you. All inmates get an alarm for wake-up every morning at 6:00 AM, and then you’ll have roll call. Then you will eat breakfast. After breakfast, you will 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 Floyd County Corrections, 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 Floyd County Corrections 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 someone in jail at Floyd County Corrections can change, so it would be best to double check the site 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.
