Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you are locked up, your primary thought is about getting out. After you’ve been booked, bail will be determined by a special judge called a magistrate. If there is no bail set this can mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you do bail out you must agree to be there for your court date, and until that day you must not go out of town.

Typically, prisoners will be given time off for good behavior when they follow the rules and area a good inmate while they’re in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to go back to jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you might have the chance to move to a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you have to pay to the courts in order to be released from jail until your trial. The amount of bail that is set depends on the crime you’ve been charged with. Someone you know will need to put up 10% of the amount set so you are able to get out of jail. If you don’t go to court, the person that paid your bail will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you must call the Grant County Jail or the County Courthouse. If know the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will tell you how much their bail is. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Grant County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is no fun, but usually, it’s simple to do if you have the money. First, you need to know if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If this is the case, 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 can’t accept checks. When you’ve paid bail, the person will get released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it, you should use a bail bondsman. They usually charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and usually charge a minimum charge of $100. This is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman will use your assets as collateral for the bond.

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail takes anywhere from 30 minutes to hours or even all day long. In simple terms, the quicker bail is posted, the faster you will be freed. It also might depend on whether or not you have a bond amount or if a magistrate still needs to determine your bail amount. For a minor charge, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and have a date of your release, expect to be released between 9am and noon.

How To Turn Yourself In

If you have a, or if you need to report to start a sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the rules and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. If it is for a warrant, go to the jail, and tell the intake officer that believe that there could be a warrant for your arrest. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out 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 it is for a jail sentence, report to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order lists. Be very careful that you don’t show up late. Make sure that you only bring things that are allowed when you turn yourself in, for example your drivers license or photo ID, prescription medication, as well as the copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you have to list each visitor’s name to the jail before anyone can visit them. Your visitor’s names will go in the log as an authorized visitor. Each visitor must provide proof of identification. Any visitors that gets to visitation or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies change often, so we suggest that you double-check the jail site before you visit an inmate.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of serving a jail sentence in Grant County Jail is quite unpleasant, you will soon settle into the routine that is set for you. You will get an alarm for wake-up at six in the morning, and then roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. When you finish 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 Grant 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 Grant 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 process for sending money to inmates might change, so you should double check the official website 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.
