Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you are incarcerated, your main thought is about when you get out. After booking, your bail will be set either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If there is no bail set this may 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 of jail you will have to agree to go to your court date, and in the meantime you are not permitted to travel out of the county.

Typically, prisoners will earn time off for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and act right while incarcerated.

If you follow the rules, you might be allowed to do work release. You will be required to stay the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you might be allowed to live in a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you have to pay to the courts to get out of jail until your court date. The amount of bail that is set all depends on the crime you’ve been charged with. Someone you know will need to put up 10 percent of the total that was set before you can get discharged from jail. If you fail to show up for court, whoever put up your bail money won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You must call the Robertson County Jail. If you have all the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know the bail amount. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Robertson County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but most of the time, its really easy if you have the money. First, you need to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you can’t use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail can’t take checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will be discharged. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will usually charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and usually have a minimum charge of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman will usually ask to use your personal assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

  • You have to answer a number of questions, such as your full name, home address, date of birth and an emergency contact.
  • They’ll also ask you about your psychological and medical history.
  • You will be issued an inmate ID.
  • You will be fingerprinted.
  • You will have a front and profile photo taken for your mugshot.
  • All personal property will be taken from you and stored until you are released.
  • You will be allowed to make a telephone call in order to contact a member of your family, friend, or bondsman to arrange bail.
  • If you think you will get released quickly, you might be able to wear your street clothes, if not you will be issued a jail issued jumpsuit.

Have you ever been arrested and gone through processing at jail? If you have, you should tell our readers about your experience. How long did it take to get processed? What was you treatment like? Do you have any tips that will help other people to get through jail processing?

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will get discharged from jail. Getting discharged may take anywhere from 30 minutes to many hours. So, the faster you can pay your bail, the sooner you will get let go. Also, how fast you get released might depend on whether you have a bond amount or if a magistrate has to determine your bail amount. For minor offenses, you will simply be booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have served out your jail sentence and are given a release date, expect to be discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If there is a, or if you need to begin your jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you do the right thing and turn yourself into the authorities. For a warrant, go to the jail reception area, and tell someone that you think they might have an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. 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, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, go to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order states. Be very careful that you don’t show up late. Be sure to only bring necessary items when you go to jail, for example your drivers license or even your ID, prescription medication, and a sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you have to list each visitor’s name to the jail before anyone can visit them. Your visitor’s names will go into a log of visitors as an authorized visitor. Each and every visitor will have to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Anyone that gets to visitation or that does not have a visting order will not be able to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures are always changing, so we suggest that you double-check the official site before you visit an inmate.

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 usually pricier than regular phone calls. Inmates are able to make phone calls, with restrictions on how often you can use the phone, but inmates must keep in mind that every inmate wants to use the phone too, so they can call their family. If you break the rules, an inmate’s ability to use the phone could be reduced or eliminated completely.

Phone Number: 606-724-5685

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in the Robertson County jail is no fun, eventually you will get used to the daily routine. All inmates get an alarm for wake-up at 6:00AM, and then roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. After breakfast, you will have 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 Robertson 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 Robertson 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 money to inmates could change, so double check the official Robertson County Jail site when you send money 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.
