Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you’re locked up, your primary thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail will be determined either through a preset bail schedule or a 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 must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you will have to agree to be there for your court date, and you won’t be allowed to leave the area.

In most cases, prisoners in the Kingman County Jail are given time off for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and act right while they are in jail.

If you follow the rules, you may be granted work release. You will be required to return to the jail each day when you’re finished working, or you might get to move to a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system to get out of jail pending trial. The amount of bail that is set all depends on what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. Someone you know will need to put up ten percent of the total set so you can get out of jail. If you don’t show up for your court date, the person that paid your bail will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you have to call the Kingman County Jail. If you have all the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can see the bail amount 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 in some cases, its simple to do if you have the money. First of all, find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, 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 will not accept a personal check. Once you have paid the bond, the inmate will be discharged. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you can’t afford it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and sometimes with a minimum of $100. This will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman might require that they use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

You can find a bail bondsman visit our page about: Bail bondsman

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. This process will take between 10 minutes to hours or even all day long. In other words the faster bail is posted, the faster you can get released from jail. It also might depend on whether you’ve got a bond amount or if the magistrate must figure out your bail amount. For a minor charge, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served your sentence and have a date of your release, expect to get released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you have 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 you have a warrant, report to the jail reception area, and tell them that think that there is a warrant out for your arrest. They will do a record check, and if they verify that you have one, they will take you into custody. If it is for a jail sentence, report to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Ensure that you aren’t late. Make sure that you only bring necessary items with you, for example a driver’s license or even your ID, prescription medication, and a sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates must give each visitor’s full name to the jail in advance. Your visitors will go into a log of approved visitors as an Authorized visit. All visitors will be required to provide a photo ID when visiting. Anyone that gets to visitation or that is not an approved visitor will not be able to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures change often, so make sure that you check the jail site before you go.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of getting locked up in Kingman County Jail is something you wish you could avoid, in time you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. You will get an alarm to wake up every morning at 6am, and next they’ll do roll call. After roll call 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 Kingman 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 Kingman 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 at Kingman County Jail could change, so be sure to check the official Kingman County Jail site before send funds 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.
