Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you are in jail, your main thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve gone through booking, a bail amount is determined using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If there is no bail set this might 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 will have to promise to show up for court, and until then you won’t be allowed to leave town.

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

If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. Either you will have to stay jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you might have the chance to move to 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 have to pay in order to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you have to pay is determined by the seriousness of your charges. You will need to pay to the courts ten percent of the total that was set before you can be released from jail. If you don’t show up for your scheduled court date, whoever put up your bail money will lose that bail 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 will need to call the jail. If know the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you the bail amount. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Bailing out of jail is never fun, but usually, its really easy if you have the money. First, you need to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond. If so, you can’t get a bail bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail can’t accept a personal 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 their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and usually charge a minimum charge of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman will use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

When reporting to serve a sentence, report to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order states. Be very careful that you don’t show up late. Be sure to only bring things that are allowed when you turn yourself in, for example a driver’s license or even your ID, any prescription medication you might take, and a sentencing order.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of being incarcerated in the Webster County jail is no fun, eventually you will get used to the daily routine. You should expect an alarm to wake up each morning at 6:00am, and then roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. Following 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 Webster 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 Webster 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 might change, so be sure to check the the Webster County Jail website when you send any funds.

    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.
