Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

If you’re in jail, your primary thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, a bail amount will be decided using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. In cases where no bail is set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you must promise to show up for court, and until then you won’t be allowed to go out of town.

Typically, inmates at Casey County Detention Center can earn an early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while locked up.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to stay jail each day after work, or you could be allowed to move to a halfway house instead of living at 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 of bail that is set is determined by the crime you’ve been charged with. You will need to post 10 percent of the total that was set so you are able to bail out of jail. If you don’t show up for your court appearance, whoever posted your bail will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will have to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can find out how much their bail is online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Bailing out of jail is never a fun thing, but fortunately, it is simple to do if you have the money. First, find out if it is a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you will not be able to use the services of a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they will not take a check. Once you have paid the bond, the prisoner will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you just don’t have the money, you should try a bail bondsman. They will usually have a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set, and sometimes charge a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and is typically cash only. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman will in most cases ask to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Jail Policies and Procedures

Intake Procedures / Booking

The intake procedure takes you through the following steps:

  • You will be placed in a holding cell. If the jail is really busy, it will take a while to get processed.
  • Firstly, you must answer some questions, like what is your full legal name, home address, date of birth and an emergency contact person.
  • Also, you will also be asked about your medical and psychological history.
  • You’ll be given an inmate ID.
  • Your fingerprints will be taken.
  • You will have a front and profile photo taken for your mugshot.
  • All personal property will be taken away from you and stored until you get released.
  • You will then be allowed to make a phone call to contact family, friends, or bail bondsman.
  • If you think you will get released quickly, you will be allowed to keep wearing street clothes, if not you will be issued a jail uniform – the jumpsuit.

Have you been arrested and gone through jail intake? If so, please tell your story so other people can learn from your experience. How long did it take to get processed? How did the guards treat you? Do you have any things that might help other people that get arrested make it through the process?

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will get released from jail. The discharge process can take between 30 minutes to all day long. Or, simply, the faster you post bail, the quicker you can get released from jail. Also, it depends on whether you’ve got a bond amount or if the magistrate still needs to determine how much to set your bail at. 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 discharge date, you should plan to be discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you must begin your jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the law and turn yourself in willingly. If you have a warrant, go down to the jail intake area, and let them know that you think there is a warrant out for your arrest. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, and if you do, you will be taken into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report at the time and date that the sentence order states. Ensure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Just bring allowed items when you go, for example a driver’s license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, and a copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates must provide each visitor’s name to the jail in advance. Your visitors will be put into a log of visitors as an authorized visitor. Each and every visitor will have to provide proof of identification. Any visitors that arrives for visitation late or that is not an approved visitor will not be able to attend visitation.
The Casey County Detention Center visitation procedures frequently change, so make sure that you review the official site before you go to the jail to visit.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

Phone calls that inmates are allowed to make from jail are made through a jail approved pre-paid phone account or phone card . These phone calls are typically 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 lots of people want to use the phone – so you have to share. If you break the jail rules, phone privileges might get reduced or totally denied.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in Casey County Detention Center is something you wish you could avoid, soon you will settle into the daily routine there. Expect a wake-up alarm every morning at 6:00AM, and next they’ll do roll call. Next, you will have breakfast. When you finish breakfast participate 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 Casey 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 Casey 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 procedure to send money to Casey County Detention Center inmates can change, so it would be best to review the official Casey County Detention Center site when send funds to someone in jail 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.
