Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you’re locked up, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve been booked, your bail is decided using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. In cases where no bail is set this may 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 must agree to be there for your court date, and until that day you are not permitted to leave town.

Usually, inmates in the Kimball County Jail are given time off in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and don’t cause any problems while locked up.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to return to jail every day after work, or you might get to live in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to get out of jail until your trial. Your bail amount all depends on how serious your crime is. You will need to pay to the courts 10% of the amount that was determined in order to be released from jail. If you fail to show up for court, whoever put up your bail money won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you need to call the jail. If you have all the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Kimball County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is no fun, but fortunately, it is simple to do if you have the money. First of all, you need to know if it is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you will not be able to get a bail bondsman. Cash only – the jail won’t accept a check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the prisoner will be released. 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, or you just can’t afford it, you you should hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and in most cases charge a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman will in these cases request to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Discharge Procedures

When you post bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail can take from 30 minutes to quite a few hours. In simple terms, the quicker you post bail, the sooner you can get released from jail. Also, how fast you get released might depend on if you have a bond amount or if the magistrate has to figure out the amount of bail to be set. For lesser charges, you will simply be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served out your jail sentence and are given a date of your release, you should expect to get discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If you have a, or if you have to start a jail sentence, you should follow the law and turn yourself into the authorities. For a warrant, report to the jail intake area, and let them know that you think there is an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if they verify that you have one, they will take you into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go down to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order lists. Be very careful that you aren’t late. Make sure that you only bring things that are allowed when you go to jail, for example a driver’s license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and a copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to list information about each visitor to the jail in advance of any visit. Your visitors will go into a Visiting log for the inmate. Each and every visitor is required to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Anyone arriving late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will be turned away.
Visitation procedures at Kimball County Jail are always changing, so double-check the official Kimball County Jail jail site before you go to the jail to visit.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of getting locked up in the Kimball County jail is quite unpleasant, soon you will get used to the daily routine there. All inmates get a wake-up alarm every morning at six in the morning, and then you’ll have roll call. Then you will eat breakfast. After 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 Kimball 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 Kimball 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 money to Kimball County Jail inmates might change, so double check the official 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.
