Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Obviously, if you’re locked up, your only thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail will be determined using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If no bail is set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.
If you do bail out you are required to promise to be in court on your court date, and until that day you won’t be permitted to leave the area.
Typically, a prisoner in the Green County Jail can earn an early release in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and area a good inmate while locked up.
If you follow the rules, you might be given work release detail. You will be required to go back to the jail every day when you’re finished working, or you might have the chance to sleep in a halfway house instead of jail.
Your bail is money that you have to pay to the courts to get out of jail until you go to court. Your bail amount all depends on the seriousness of your charges. Someone you know will need to put up 10 percent of the total amount that was set in order to bail out of jail. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, the person that paid your bail will not get their money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out someone’s bail amount you must call the Green County Jail. If you have all the person’s information, such as 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
Bailing out of jail is never fun, but thankfully, it is really easy. To start with, figure out if they have a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you will not be able to get a bail bondsman. Cash only – they will not accept checks. When you’ve paid bail, the person will be discharged. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.
If the bail amount is too high, of if you can’t pay it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. They will usually charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and sometimes have a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman will in these cases require that they use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

When you finally post bail, you will get discharged from jail. The discharge process may take between 30 minutes to all day. In simple terms, the quicker bail is posted, the faster you will be freed. It also depends on if you’ve got a cash bond amount or if a judge needs to decide on the amount of bail to be set. For a minor offense, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and have a release date, expect to get discharged anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.
How To Turn Yourself In
warrant out for your arrest, or if you must begin your jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you do the right thing and turn yourself in willingly. In the case of an outstanding warrant, report to the jail intake center, and tell them that you think there is a warrant out for your arrest. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order requires you to. Ensure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Make sure that you only bring approved items when you turn yourself in, like a driver’s license or state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as a sentencing order.
To have visitors, you must list information about each visitor to the jail in advance of any visit. Your visitor’s information will go into a log of visitors for the inmate. All visitors will have to provide proof of identification. Visitors that arrives for visitation late or without a visiting order will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
Jail visitation policies can change, so make sure that you double-check the official jail site before you go.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Just the thought of spending time in the Green County jail is very scary, you will soon get used to the routine that is set for you. Inmates get an alarm to wake up each morning at 6am, and next you’ll have roll call. Next, you will have breakfast. Following 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 Green County Jail, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.
When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Green 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 funds to Green County Jail inmates is likely to change, so we suggest that you double check the official website before you send funds to an inmate there.
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.
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.
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.
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.

They get to know the inmates on a certain level, and are well equipped to handle any problems that may occur.
