Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you are locked up, your only thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail is decided using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If there is no bail set this might mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out of jail you are required to agree to be in court on your court date, and in the meantime you are not permitted to leave the area.

In most cases, an inmate at Reno County Jail will be given an 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 given work release detail. You will be required to stay the jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you could be permitted to move to a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay to get out of jail pending trial. The amount you will have to pay is determined by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You will need to post 10 percent of the total that was determined in order to bail out of jail. If you fail to show up for your court date, whoever put up your bail money will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you will have to call the jail. If you’ve got the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they will tell you what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but in some cases, it is easy if you have the money. First, you need to know if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you won’t be able to get a Bail Bondsman. Cash only – the jail can’t accept checks. When you’ve paid bail, the inmate will be released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you just can’t afford it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually charge a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and usually with a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman might ask to use your personal assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Discharge Procedures

When you post bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged can take anywhere between 30 minutes to quite a few hours. In simple terms, the faster you post bail, the faster you will get let go. Also, it depends on if you have a cash bond or if a magistrate needs to determine your bail amount. For lesser charges, you will get booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have served your sentence and are given a release date, you should plan to be released anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.

How To Turn Yourself In

If there is a, or if you have to begin your sentence in jail, you should follow the law and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, go to the jail, in the reception area, and tell an officer that you think there may be an outstanding warrant for your arrest. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if there is one, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, go down to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order states. Be sure that you are not late to report. Just bring things that are allowed when you go, such as a driver’s license or even state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and a sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates must give the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s information will be put in the log as an authorized visitor. Each visitor is required to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Visitors that arrives for visitation late or that is not on the visitation list will not be able to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures frequently change, so make sure that you check the jail site before you visit an inmate.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

Jail phone calls are typically pricier than phone calls made outside of jail. Inmates are able to make phone calls, with restrictions on how often you can use the phone, but you should keep in mind that you are just one of many people who want to talk to their loved ones. If you break the rules, your ability to use the phone may be limited or eliminated completely.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in the Reno County jail is quite unpleasant, in time you will get accustomed to the daily routine there. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up at about 6:00am, and next they’ll do roll call. You will then have breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will 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 Reno 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 Reno 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 procedure to send funds to someone in jail changes, so it would be best to check the official website before you send money 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.
