Once you’re in jail, your primary thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve gone through booking, bail will be determined using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If there is no bail set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you are released from jail you must agree to be in court on your court date, and until then you must not travel out of the county.

Usually, a prisoner at Iberville Parish Jail are given time off in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and area a good inmate while they’re in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to do work release. You will be required to return to the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you may be allowed to move to a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay in order to be released from jail pending trial. Your bail amount is dictated by the crime you are charged with. You will need to pay 10 percent of the total amount set in order for you to bail out of jail. If you fail to show up for your court date, whoever put up your bail money won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but thankfully, it’s easy. To start with, you have to find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you will not be able to use a bail bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they will not take a check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the person will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, of if you can’t pay it, you you should hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will usually charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and usually have a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman will usually ask to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that spending time in the Iberville Parish jail is very scary, you will soon get accustomed to the daily routine there. You should expect an alarm for wake-up every morning at 6:00AM, and next you’ll have roll call. Then you will have breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will be required to work in the program that has been assigned to you. 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 Iberville Parish 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 Iberville Parish 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 inmates at Iberville Parish Jail could change, so we suggest that you double check 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.
