Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

If you’re incarcerated, your primary thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, a bail amount is determined either by bail schedule or magistrate. If there is no bail set this may mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are released from jail you must promise to be in court on your court date, and in the meantime you are not permitted to leave the area.

Typically, inmates will earn time off in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and don’t cause any problems while they are in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be given work release detail. You will have to return to the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished working, or you could be permitted to move into a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you have to pay to the court system in order to be released from jail pending trial. Your bail amount depends on how serious your charges are. You will need to put up ten percent of the total that was determined so you can be released. If you fail to show up for court, whoever posted your bail won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will need to call the jail or the county courthouse. If know the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you how much their bail is. You can also see the bail amount online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but fortunately, its simple to do if you have the money. First, figure out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you can’t get a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail won’t accept a personal check. When you’ve paid bail, the prisoner will be discharged. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just don’t have the money, you you should hire a bail bondsman. They will usually charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and usually charge a minimum of $100. This money will not be returned to you and has to be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman will in these cases request to use your assets as collateral.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of spending time in Campbell County Detention Center is something you wish you could avoid, in time you will get used to the routine that is set for you. You should expect a wake-up alarm every morning at 6:00am, and then you’ll have roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will be required 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 Campbell County Detention Center, 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 Campbell County Detention Center 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 money to someone in jail at Campbell County Detention Center might change, so visit the the Campbell County Detention Center 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.
