Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you’re incarcerated, your only thought is about when you get out. After you’ve been booked, your bail is set by a special judge called a magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you will have to agree to be in court on your court date, and in the meantime you are not permitted to leave town.

Usually, prisoners in the Lincoln County Regional Jail are given early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and conduct themselves properly while locked up.

If you follow the rules, you might be given work release detail. Either you will have to return to the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished working, or you might be allowed to move into a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to get out of jail pending trial. The amount you will have to pay is determined by how serious your crime is. Someone will have to pay 10 percent of the total amount that was set before you can get discharged from jail. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, the person that bailed you out of jail won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you must call the Lincoln County Regional Jail. If know the person’s 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 on the Lincoln County Regional Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Bailing out of jail is no fun, but in some cases, it’s easy. First of all, you need to know if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If so, you won’t be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. Cash only – the jail can’t take checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will be released into your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you will need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and sometimes charge a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman will use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of spending time in Lincoln County Regional Jail is something you wish you could avoid, soon you will settle into the daily routine. You will get an alarm for wake-up every morning at 6am, and next you’ll have roll call. You will then have breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will be required 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 Lincoln County Regional 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 Lincoln County Regional 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 someone in jail could change, so review the the Lincoln County Regional Jail website before send money 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.
