Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you’re incarcerated, your only thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail is determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If there is no bail 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 are released from jail you are required to promise to be there for your court date, and in the meantime you must not leave the county.

Usually, a prisoner will earn an early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and area a good inmate while locked up.

If you follow the rules, you might be given work release detail. You will either have to return to jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you might be allowed to move into a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system in order to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will be required to pay all depends on the crime you are charged with. Someone will have to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total that was determined in order to be released from jail. If you fail to show up for your scheduled court date, the person that paid your bail will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you have to call the Morrison County Jail. If know the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know the bail amount. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the Morrison County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is no fun, but in some cases, it is really easy. To start with, you need to find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you will not be able to get a Bail Bondsman. Cash only – they can’t accept a check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the prisoner will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually have a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and usually with a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bail bondsman will in most cases request to use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will get released from jail. This process will take anywhere from 30 minutes to all day long. So, the faster you can pay your bail, the quicker you will get released. Also, how fast you get released might depend on whether or not you’ve been given a cash bond amount or if a judge needs to decide on your bail amount. For a minor charge, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served out your jail sentence and know the date of your release, you should plan to get discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If the police have a, or if you must report to start a sentence, it is highly recommended that you follow the law and turn yourself in willingly. If you have a warrant, report to the jail processing area, and tell them that you think they might have an outstanding warrant for your arrest. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if they find one, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, go down to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Ensure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Make sure that you only bring necessary items when you turn yourself in, like your drivers license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to provide each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail. Your visitors will go into a Visiting log for the requesting inmate. Each visitor will be required to provide identification. Anyone showing up late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
The Morrison County Jail visitation procedures can change, so make sure that you double-check the official Morrison County Jail jail site before you try to go to visitation.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in Morrison County Jail is quite unpleasant, soon you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you. You will get a wake-up alarm at 6am, and then you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. After breakfast, you will have 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 Morrison 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 Morrison 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 someone in jail at Morrison County Jail might change, so be sure to review the site when you send money to an inmate.

    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.
