Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Naturally, if you’re incarcerated, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail will be decided using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If you don’t get a bail set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.
If you do bail out of jail you must promise to show up for court, and in the meantime you are required not to leave the area.
Usually, an inmate are given time off in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and act right while incarcerated.
If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be granted work release. Either you will have to go back to jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you could have the chance to sleep in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.
Your bail is how much money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you have to pay all depends on how serious your crime is. You will need to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total that was set in order for you to bail out of jail. If you don’t show up for your court date, whoever put up your bail money will lose all of the bail money.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
To find out someone’s bail amount you need to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they will let you know the bail amount. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Goodhue County Adult Detention Cente website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Needing to bail someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but in some cases, it is really easy if you have the money. First of all, find out if it is a Cash Only Bond. If it is, you will not be able to use a bail bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they can’t accept a personal check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the prisoner will be discharged. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.
If the bail amount is too high, or you just don’t have the money, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. They generally have a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and usually have a minimum fee of $100. This is non-refundable and is typically cash only. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman will usually use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

When you have served your sentence and know the date of your release, expect to get released at any time that day – but usually in the morning.
How To Turn Yourself In
for your arrest, or if you need to start a jail sentence, you should do the right thing and turn yourself into the authorities. If you have a warrant, report to the jail, and tell an officer that you think they might have an outstanding warrant for your arrest.

If it is for a jail sentence, report to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order lists. Be very careful that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Only bring allowed items when you go to jail, like a driver’s license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, and a official sentencing order.
Inmates must list the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail in advance. Your visitor’s names will go in a Visiting log for the inmate that requested the visitor. Every visitor will be required to provide a photo ID when visiting. Visitors showing up late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will be turned away.
Visitation procedures frequently change, so it would be wise to double-check the jail site before you try to visit an inmate.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy
The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are made through a jail approved pre-paid phone account or phone card . Phone calls made in jail are usually more costly than regular phone calls. There is no limit to when you can make phone calls, how long you can talk, and how often you can make calls, but inmates should keep in mind that every inmate wants to use the phone too, so they can call their family. If you are under any sort of disciplinary procedure, phone calls might get reduced or forbidden completely.

When you finish eating breakfast you will 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 Goodhue County Adult Detention Cente, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.

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.
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.
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.
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.
