If no bail is set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you are required to promise to be in court on your court date, and until then you will not be permitted to go out of town.

Usually, a prisoner can earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and area a good inmate while incarcerated.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will have to return to the jail at the end of the day after work, or you may be permitted to move to a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you have to pay in order to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you will have to pay all depends on the crime you’ve been charged with. You will have to post 10 percent of the total that was set so you are able to get out of jail. If you fail to show up for court, the person that bailed you out of jail will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you can’t afford it yourself, you you should hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually have a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and in most cases have a minimum fee of $100. This money will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman will request to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

  • You will also be asked about your medical and psychological history.
  • You will be issued an inmate number.
  • Your fingerprints will be taken.
  • You will get your mugshot taken.
  • Any personal property you have will be taken from you and stored until you get released from jail.
  • You will be allowed to make a telephone call to talk to a member of your family, friend, or bondsman to arrange bail.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will be discharged from jail. This process can take anywhere between 15 minutes to all day. In simple terms, the quicker bail is posted, the sooner you will get released. It also depends on whether you’ve got a cash bond or if the judge needs to decide on the bail amount. For minor offenses, 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 know the discharge date, you should plan to be discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If you have a, or if you need to begin your sentence in jail, you really should follow the rules and turn yourself in willingly. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go down to the jail reception area, and tell someone that you think they might have a warrant 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 they verify that you have one, they will take you into custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, report at the exact time and date that the sentence order lists. Be very careful that you are not late. Be sure to only bring allowed items when you go to jail, like your drivers license or even your ID, prescription medication, as well as the sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates must list information about each visitor to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s information will be put into a log of approved visitors for the inmate. All visitors will be required to provide proof of identification. Any visitors arriving late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
Visitation procedures change often, so it would be wise to review the jail site before you try to visit an inmate.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

All phone calls from jail are made through a jail approved pre-paid phone account or phone card . These phone calls are generally more expensive than regular phone calls. Phone calls are restricted on when and how often you can use the phone, but inmates must keep in mind that you are just one of many people who want to talk to their loved ones. If you are disciplined for an infraction, an inmate’s ability to use the phone may be limited or cut altogether.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of being incarcerated in the Henry County jail is very scary, in time you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. Prisoners get an alarm for wake-up each morning at 6:00AM, and next you’ll have roll call. You will then get breakfast. Following breakfast you will have to work in the work program or other activity that you are assigned. 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 Henry 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 Henry 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 Henry County Jail inmates can change, so visit the 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.
