Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you are incarcerated, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve gone through booking, bail is set using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If there is no bail set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you are released from jail you are required to promise to show up for court, and until that day you won’t be allowed to leave the county.

Typically, inmates in the Antelope County Jail can earn an early release in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and act right while in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. Either you will have to return to jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you could have the chance to sleep in a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

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

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you must call the Antelope County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know how much their bail is. You can also see the bail amount online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but thankfully, its really easy if you have the money. To start with, you need to know if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you will not be able to use a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they can’t accept checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will be released into your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you you should hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and in most cases with a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bondsman will usually require that they use your assets as collateral.

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. This process will take anywhere from 10 minutes to quite a few hours. In simple terms, the quicker you post bail, the quicker you will be released. How quickly you get discharged depends on whether you’ve been given a cash bond amount or if a magistrate has to determine how much your bail will be. For minor charges, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served your sentence and know the date of your release, expect to get released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you need to begin your sentence in jail, it is highly recommended that you follow the rules and turn yourself in willingly. In the case of an outstanding warrant, report to the jail processing area, and let them know that believe that there could be an outstanding warrant for your arrest. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if they verify that you have one, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. If it is for a jail sentence, go down to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be very careful that you are not late. Only bring approved items when you go to jail, such as your drivers license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, and a official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates need to give the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail in advance. This information will be put into the visitors log for the inmate. Each and every visitor will have to provide proof of identification. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will be turned away.
Visitation procedures frequently change, so we suggest that you review the official site before you try to go to visitation.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

All phone calls from jail are made through a jail approved pre-paid phone account or phone card . Jail phone calls are generally more expensive than phone calls made at home. There is no limit to how often you can use the phone, but bear in mind lots of people want to use the phone – so you have to share. If you break the rules and are disciplined, an inmate’s ability to use the phone might get reduced or forbidden.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of being incarcerated in Antelope County Jail is something you wish you could avoid, soon you will settle into the routine that is set for you in jail. You will get a wake-up alarm each morning at six in the morning, and then roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. Following breakfast participate 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 Antelope 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 Antelope 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 rules for sending funds to someone in jail can change, so it would be best to check the official Antelope County Jail site before 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.
