Obviously, if you’re incarcerated, your only thought is about when you get out. After you’ve been booked, your bail amount is determined using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are are released you must promise to be in court on your court date, and until then you won’t be allowed to leave the county.

Usually, a prisoner will earn an early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and area a good inmate while locked up.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to do work release. You will have to go back to jail at the end of the day when you’re finished working, or you could have the chance to live in a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you are required to pay to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you will have to pay all depends on how serious your crime is. Someone you know will need to pay ten percent of the total set before you can get out of jail. If you don’t go to your court date, that person will lose that bail money.

To find out someone’s bail amount you will need to call the jail. If you have all the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Bailing out of jail is never a fun thing, but most of the time, its very simple to do. First of all, find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you won’t be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they can’t accept checks. Once you have paid the 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 bail is set too high, of if you can’t pay it, you might need to use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen generally charge a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set, and usually have a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bail bondsman will require that they use your personal assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.
