Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you are in jail, your main thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail amount is set either by bail schedule or magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this may mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you must promise to show up for court, and until that day you can’t travel out of the county.

In most cases, an inmate will be given an early release in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and conduct themselves properly while incarcerated.

If you follow the rules, you may be granted work release. You will either have to go back to jail every day when you’re finished working, or you could get to move into a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the courts to get out of jail until your court date. The amount you will be required to pay all depends on the crime you are charged with. Someone you know will need to post 10 percent of the total amount that was determined in order for you to be released from jail. If you miss court, whoever put up your bail money will lose that money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You will need to call the Geary County Corrections Division. If know the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Geary County Corrections Division website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but most of the time, it is very simple to do. First, find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you can’t use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail will not take a personal check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the inmate will be released to your care. 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, you might need to use a bail bondsman. They will usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and sometimes have a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman will in most cases ask to use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in Geary County Corrections Division is quite unpleasant, in time you will settle into the daily routine there. You should expect an alarm for wake-up at about six in the morning, and next you’ll have roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. Following breakfast you will have to 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 Geary County Corrections Division, 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 Geary County Corrections Division 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 people in jail is always changing, so we suggest that you check the the Geary County Corrections Division website 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.
