Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you’re in jail, your main thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail amount will be decided by a special judge called a magistrate. If no bail is set this may mean that you will either be released, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are released from jail you are required to promise to be there for your court date, and until that day you won’t be allowed to leave the area.

In most cases, a prisoner in the Rice County Jail And Annex will earn time off in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while they are in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to stay jail at the end of the day after work, or you might be allowed to move into a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay to be released from jail pending trial. The amount of bail that is set depends on the seriousness of your charges. You or someone you know will have to pay 10 percent of the total that was determined in order for you to bail out of jail. If you miss court, the person that paid your bail will lose that money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail must call the jail. If you have all the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they will let you know what their bail is set at. You can also see the bail amount online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is never fun, but most of the time, it’s really easy if you have the money. To start with, you need to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you won’t be able to get a bail bondsman. Cash only – the jail can’t accept checks. Once the cash bond has been paid, the person will get released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

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

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. This process may take from 10 minutes to quite a few hours. In simple terms, the quicker bail is posted, the sooner you can get out of jail. Also, how fast you get released can depend on whether or not you have a cash bond or if the magistrate must figure out the bail amount. For lesser charges, you will simply be booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have served your sentence and are given a discharge date, expect to be discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

When reporting to serve a sentence, go down to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be sure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Make sure that you only bring approved items when you go, for example a driver’s license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, and the sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of spending time in the Rice County jail is something you wish you could avoid, you will soon settle into the routine that is set for you. All inmates get an alarm to wake up at 6:00AM, and then roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. Following breakfast you will 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 Rice County Jail And Annex, 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 Rice County Jail And Annex 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 people in jail is likely to change, so we suggest that you check the the Rice County Jail And Annex website when you send funds 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.
