Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you are locked up, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail will be determined by a special judge called a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are released from jail you must agree to be there for your court date, and until then you won’t be allowed to leave the area.

Typically, inmates at Logan County Jail can earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and act right while locked up.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. Either you will have to go back to the jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you might get to move into a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is money that you are required to pay to get out of jail pending trial. The amount of bail that is set depends on the crime you are charged with. You will need to pay 10% of the amount set in order for you to get out of jail. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, whoever posted your bail will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you have to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the Logan County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never fun, but thankfully, its really easy if you have the money. To start with, figure out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If so, you won’t be able to use a Bail Bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail can’t accept a check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the inmate will be released into your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just can’t afford it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually have a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set, and sometimes with a minimum fee of $100. This will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman will in these cases use assets as collateral.

Jail Policies and Procedures

Intake Procedures / Booking

The jail intake process is made up of each of the following steps:

  • They’ll put you in a holding cell. If the jail is really busy, you will have to wait a while to get processed.
  • Firstly, you must answer some questions, such as your full legal name, street address, date of birth and an emergency contact person.
  • You will also be asked about your medical and psychological history.
  • You’ll be given an inmate number.
  • Your fingerprints will be taken.
  • You will have your mugshot taken.
  • All of your personal property will be taken from you and stored until you are released.
  • They will allow you to make a phone call in order to call a member of your family, friend, or bail bondsman.
  • If you think you will get released quickly, you might be able to wear your own clothes, if not you you will have to wear a jail jumpsuit.

Have you ever been arrested and gone through processing at jail? If so, please tell your story. How long did you have to wait in the holding cell? How did the guards treat you? Do you have any tips that could help other people get through the process?

Speak Your Mind

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail may take from 15 minutes to all day long. In simple terms, the faster bail is posted, the quicker you will get released. It also can depend on whether you’ve got a cash bond or if a judge still needs to figure out how much your bail will be. For lesser charges, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and have a release date, plan to be released at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

out against you, or if you need to begin your jail sentence, you should do the right thing and turn yourself in willingly. If you have a warrant, report to the jail processing area, and tell the intake officer that think that there is 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 verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. If it is for a jail sentence, report to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Ensure that you don’t show up late. Make sure that you only bring approved items with you, such as a driver’s license or photo ID, prescription medication, as well as the official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates need to list each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail in advance of any visit. Your visitor’s information will be entered in the visitation log for the requesting inmate. All visitors will have to provide proof of identification. Anyone that gets to visitation or that is not on the visitation list will be turned away.
The Logan County Jail visitation procedures can change, so we suggest that you check the official Logan County Jail jail site before go to the jail to visit an inmate.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are collect calls or through a pre-paid phone account . Jail phone calls are much more costly than phone calls made at home. Inmates are able to make phone calls, with restrictions on how often you can use the phone, but you should keep in mind that there are a limited number of phones, so all the inmates must share phone time. If you are disciplined for an infraction, phone calls might get reduced or eliminated completely, as part of the punishment.

The Logan County Jail phone number is: 785-671-3288

Clearly write or type the inmate’s name, inmate ID, and the address of the jail on the letter.

Court Information

Get A Lawyer

If you have been arrested, you have certain rights, one of these being that you have the right to request an attorney. Remember that you may be limited to the amount of phone calls you can make, so it is a good idea to get a friend or relative to find a lawyer when you call. You might be asking yourself ‘why do I need a lawyer?’ While you are not required to have one, a criminal lawyer will make sure you know your rights, protect your interests and guide you through the court system in Logan County. The sooner you get an attorney working on your case, the better off you’ll be.

For more information about this subject, visit: How to Find an Attorney

Public Defender

In addition, the Public Defender’s Office is staffed by independent investigators, crime scene and forensics experts as well as social workers. You should be reassured that Public Defenders are real attorneys who are members of the State Bar and are legally licensed to practice law as an agent of the court.

Information, details, and character witnesses will be requested from the defendant, his or her family members, and in some cases the victim of the crime. Don’t forget that you should ask to receive your own copy of the pre-sentencing report before you are sentenced, and review it and correct any mistakes.

Sentencing

After you are convicted of a crime, you will then get sentenced. The judge will have several different options when sentencing you, which include community service and probation, to incarceration in jail or prison. Depending on the severity of the crime, you could be taken into custody immediately, or you might be given a date that you are required to turn yourself into jail to serve your jail time according to your sentence.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in the Logan County jail is very scary, soon you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. You will get an alarm to wake up every morning at six in the morning, and then roll call. After roll call you will have breakfast. When you finish eating 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 Logan 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 Logan 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 Logan County Jail inmates might change, so visit the official Logan County Jail 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.
