Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you are in jail, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, a bail amount will be determined either by bail schedule or magistrate. If no bail is set this can mean that you will either be released, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are are released you are required to agree to show up for court, and you must not go out of town.

In most cases, an inmate in the Stone County Regional Correctional Facility are given early release in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and conduct themselves properly while incarcerated.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will either have to stay the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you could be allowed to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you have to pay 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 post 10 percent of the total set so you can get out of jail. If you don’t show up for your court date, whoever paid your bail 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 Stone County Regional Correctional Facility or the County Courthouse. If know the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they will tell you the bail amount. You can also see the bail amount on the Stone County Regional Correctional Facility website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but thankfully, it’s easy. To start with, you need to find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you won’t be able to get a bail bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they will not accept a check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the person will be discharged. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, of if you can’t pay it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen generally charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and in most cases have a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman will usually require that they use assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

In simple terms, the quicker bail is posted, the sooner you will get discharged.

For lesser charges, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you get to the end of your sentence and know the release date, you should expect to be released in the morning.

They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, you will be taken into custody. If it is for a jail sentence, report at the exact time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Make sure that you are not late to report. Be sure to only bring allowed items with you, for example your drivers license or your ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the sentencing order.

You may be asking yourself ‘I don’t need a lawyer – I can just represent myself’ You can represent yourself if you reall want to, but, a criminal lawyer can advise you of your rights, look after your best interests and show you the way through the criminal justice system that you are now faced with. The faster you hire an attorney to represent you and work on your case, the better your chances.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of serving a jail sentence in Stone County Regional Correctional Facility is something you wish you could avoid, in time you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. You will get an alarm for wake-up every morning at six in the morning, and next you’ll have roll call. You will then eat breakfast. When you finish 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 Stone County Regional Correctional Facility, 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 Stone County Regional Correctional Facility 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 Stone County Regional Correctional Facility inmates is likely to change, so be sure to visit the the Stone County Regional Correctional Facility website before 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.
