Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you are arrested and put in jail, your main thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, a bail amount is decided by a special judge called a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be released, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you do bail out you are required to agree to show up for court, and in the meantime you won’t be permitted to leave the area.

Typically, prisoners in the Neosho County Jail are given early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while they’re in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be allowed to participate in work release. You will have to stay the jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you may get to move to a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Bail is money that you are required to pay in order to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will be required to pay all depends on how serious your crime is. You will need to pay to the courts 10% of the amount that was determined so you are able to get out of jail. If you don’t go to your court appearance, the person that bailed you out of jail will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail will need to call the Neosho County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you what their bail is set at. You can also find out how much their bail is online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but fortunately, its easy. First, figure out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you can’t use a bail bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they can’t take a personal check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the inmate will be released to your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you can’t afford it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and usually with a minimum of $100. This money is non-refundable and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman might require that they use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

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

  • You will also be asked about your mental and medical history.
  • You will be given an inmate ID.
  • You will get fingerprinted.
  • You will have your mugshot taken.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will get released from jail. The discharge process will take from 30 minutes to quite a few hours. So, the quicker bail is posted, the sooner you will get let go. It also can depend on whether you have a cash bond or if the judge needs to determine the bail amount. For lesser charges, you will be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and have a date of your release, you should expect to get released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

warrant out for your arrest, or if you need to start a jail sentence, you should do the right thing and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, go down to the jail, and tell an officer that you think they might have an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if they verify that you have one, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report at the exact time and date that the sentence order states. Make sure that you are not late. Be sure to only bring allowed items when you turn yourself in, like your drivers license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, and a copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you have to give each visitor’s name to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s names will be put into a Visiting log for the inmate that requested the visitor. Every visitor is required to provide a photo ID when visiting. Visitors showing up late or that is not an approved visitor will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
Visitation procedures are always changing, so make sure that you review the official site before you visit an inmate.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are with a pre-paid phone card or account, or are collect calls . Calls made in jail are a lot pricier than phone calls made outside of jail. There are certain restrictions about when and how often you can use the phone, but inmates should keep in mind that a long line can form at the phones, because everyone wants to use the phone, too. If you break the rules and are disciplined, phone calls might get reduced or eliminated completely, as part of the punishment.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in Neosho County Jail is no fun, eventually you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you. All inmates get an alarm for wake-up every morning at 6:00am, and next you’ll have roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will have to work in the program that has been assigned to you. 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 Neosho 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 Neosho 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 rules for sending money to people in jail changes, so it would be best to double check the the Neosho County Jail website before you send funds to an inmate 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.
