Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you are locked up, your only thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, bail is set by a special judge called a magistrate. If no bail is set this can mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you will have to agree to show up for court, and in the meantime you can’t leave the county.

Usually, prisoners will earn time off for good behavior when they respect the rules and conduct themselves properly while they’re in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be allowed to participate in work release. You will either have to return to jail each day after work, or you might get to live in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Your bail is money that you have to pay to get out of jail until your trial. The amount you will be required to pay depends on how serious your charges are. Someone will have to pay 10% of the amount that was set so you can be released. If you don’t show up for court, whoever put up your bail money will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you need to call the Menifee County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can check their bail amount and status online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but thankfully, it’s really easy if you have the money. First of all, you need to know if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you can’t use the services of a bail bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they will not take a personal check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will be released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you just can’t afford it, you should try a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will usually have a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and usually with a minimum fee of $100. This money will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman will in most cases require that they use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond.

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail can take anywhere between 30 minutes to all day. In other words the faster you can post bail, the faster you will be released. How quickly you get discharged will depend on whether you’ve been given a cash bond amount or if a judge must figure out the bail amount. For a minor offense, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served your sentence and are given a date of your release, expect to be discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If the police have a, or if you have to begin your sentence in jail, it is highly advisable that you do the right thing and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, go down to the jail processing area, and tell someone that believe that there could be an outstanding warrant for your arrest. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if they verify that you have one, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. If it is for a jail sentence, go to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Make sure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Just bring things that are allowed when you turn yourself in, such as your drivers license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to give the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail in advance of any visit. Your visitors will go into the visitation log as an approved visitor. Each visitor will have to provide a photo ID when visiting. Anyone that gets to visitation or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies are always changing, so make sure that you visit the official site before you visit an inmate.

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in the Menifee County jail is something you wish you could avoid, you will soon become accustomed to the routine that is set for you. You will get a wake-up alarm at 6:00am, and then roll call. Then you will eat breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will 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 Menifee 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 Menifee 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 procedure to send funds to people in jail is always changing, so you should review the site before you send funds to an inmate 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.
