Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you’re arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through booking, bail will be decided either by bail schedule or magistrate. If there is no bail set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are are released you will have to promise to be in court on your court date, and you are not permitted to go out of town.

Typically, an inmate can earn time off for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and don’t cause any problems while incarcerated.

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

Bail

Bail is how much money that you have to pay to the courts to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you will be required to pay all depends on what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You or someone you know will have to pay to the courts ten percent of the total set in order for you to bail out of jail. If you don’t show up for your court appearance, the person that bailed you out of jail won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you have to call the jail. If you have all the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know the bail amount. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Queen Anne’S County Detention Center website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but in some cases, it is easy. First of all, figure out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you can’t use a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail will not accept a check. When you’ve paid bail, the inmate will get released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you should use a bail bondsman. They generally charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and sometimes have a minimum of $100. This is non-refundable and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bondsman may require that they use assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Jail Policies and Procedures

Intake Procedures / Booking

The jail intake process includes each of these steps:

  • You will be placed in a waiting area or cell. If the jail is busy, you will have to wait, sometimes for many hours, before you get processed.
  • The first step is that you will have to answer a bunch of questions, like what is your full legal name, street address, birthdate and an emergency contact.
  • They’ll also ask you about your psychological and medical history.
  • You will be given an inmate ID.
  • You will be fingerprinted.
  • You will get your mugshot taken.
  • Any personal property you have will be taken away from you and stored until you are discharged.
  • They will let you use the telephone in order to call family, friends, or bail bondsman.
  • If they expect that you will make bail and be released quickly, you might be allowed to wear your own clothes, if not you you will have to change into a jail uniform.

Have you ever been booked into jail? If so, please tell your story so other people can learn from your experience. How long did you have to wait? Were you treated fairly? Can you tell us tips that could help other people that get arrested to get through jail processing?

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged may take between 30 minutes to hours or even all day long. In other words the faster you can post bail, the quicker you will get discharged from jail. How quickly you get discharged might depend on whether you have a cash bond amount or if the magistrate has to decide on how much your bail will be. For lesser charges, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served your sentence and have a discharge date, you should expect to get discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you have to begin your sentence in jail, it is highly recommended that you do the right thing and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go to the jail, in the reception area, and let them know that you think there is an outstanding 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 there is one, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report on the date and time that the sentence order states. Make sure that you are not late to report. Make sure that you only bring allowed items with you, for example a driver’s license or even your ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and a official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates must list each visitor’s full name to the jail in advance of any visit. This information will be entered in the log as an Authorized visit. Every visitor must provide identification. Visitors that arrives for visitation late or without a visiting order will be turned away.
Visitation procedures frequently change, so check the official Queen Anne’S County Detention Center jail site before you go to visitation.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in Queen Anne’S County Detention Center is quite unpleasant, in time you will settle into the routine that is set for you. You will get a wake-up alarm each morning at 6:00AM, and next you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. Following breakfast participate 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 Queen Anne’S County Detention Center, 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 Queen Anne’S County Detention Center 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 people in jail changes, so you should review the official 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.
