Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you’re locked up, your main thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve been booked, bail will be set 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 are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are are released you must promise to be in court on your court date, and you are not allowed to go out of town.

Usually, a prisoner will be given time off for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and conduct themselves properly while in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will either have to return to jail each day after work, or you could get to live in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Bail is money that you have to pay to the court system in order to be released from jail until your trial. The amount of bail that is set is determined by the seriousness of your crime. Someone you know will need to put up 10 percent of the total amount that was set in order to get discharged from jail. If you fail to show up for your court date, whoever put up your bail money will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you will need to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you the bail amount. You can also see the bail amount on the Kiowa County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but usually, it’s really easy. To start with, you need to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you won’t be able to get a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – the jail will not take checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the inmate will be released into your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. They will usually charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and usually with a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman might require that they use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged can take anywhere between 30 minutes to many hours. So, the faster you can pay your bail, the sooner you will get discharged from jail.

If you have a jail sentence to serve, go to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Make sure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Just bring approved items when you go to jail, like a driver’s license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as a sentencing order from court.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of spending time in the Kiowa County jail is quite unpleasant, you will soon get accustomed to the daily routine there. Prisoners get an alarm to wake up at six in the morning, and next they’ll do roll call. You will then get breakfast. When you finish 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 Kiowa 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 Kiowa 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 funds to jail inmates might change, so you should check the official 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.
