Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you are arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After booking, a bail amount is decided using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be released, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out of jail you must agree to be in court on your court date, and until that day you are not permitted to travel out of the county.

In most cases, inmates can earn time off for good behavior when they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while they’re in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will either have to stay jail every day after work, or you could have the chance to move to a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will have to pay depends on the seriousness of your crime. You will have to pay to the courts 10% of the amount that was determined so you are able to get discharged from jail. If you don’t show up for court, whoever posted your bail will lose that money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you have to call the Randolph County Jail or the County Courthouse. If know the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know how much their bail is. You can also find out how much their bail is on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never fun, but thankfully, its really easy if you have the money. To start with, you need to know if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you won’t be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they will not accept a check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the person will be discharged. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you can’t afford it, you you should hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually have a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and in most cases charge a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman will require that they use your assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

You can find a bail bondsman visit our page about: Find a bail bondsman

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in the Randolph County jail is something you wish you could avoid, soon you will get used to the routine that is set for you in jail. Expect an alarm for wake-up each morning at 6:00am, and next they’ll do 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 Randolph 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 Randolph 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 process for sending funds to people in jail can change, so be sure to review the the Randolph County Jail website when you send funds to an inmate 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.
