Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you’re in jail, your main thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail will be decided by a special judge called a magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be released, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out of jail you must promise to go to your court date, and in the meantime you are not permitted to leave town.

Typically, inmates are given an early release in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and act right while locked up.

If you follow the rules, you might be allowed to participate in work release. You will be required to go back to the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you might be permitted to sleep in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system to get out of jail until your trial. The amount you will have to pay is determined by the seriousness of your crime. You or someone you know will have to put up 10 percent of the total amount that was determined in order for you to get out of jail. If you don’t show up for your court appearance, whoever posted your bail won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you will have to call the jail. If you have all the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know how much their bail is. You can also check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but most of the time, its really easy if you have the money. First of all, you need to find out if it is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If this is the case, you won’t be able to get a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they will not accept a check. Once you have paid the bond, the prisoner will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, of if you can’t pay it, you should use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will usually charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and sometimes with a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman will in these cases require that they use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in Deuel County Jail is something you wish you could avoid, in time you will get used to the daily routine. Prisoners get an alarm for wake-up at about 6:00AM, and then roll call. Then you will get breakfast. When you finish breakfast participate in the work program or other activity that you are assigned. 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 Deuel 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 Deuel 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 people in jail is always changing, so you should check the the Deuel County Jail website before you send any money.

    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.
