Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you’re incarcerated, your only thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, a bail amount is determined by a special judge called a magistrate. If there is no bail set this may mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you will have to promise to show up for court, and until that day you will not be permitted to leave town.

Typically, prisoners will be given early release in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and area a good inmate while in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be given work release detail. You will be required to return to the jail at the end of the day after work, or you could be allowed to live in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Bail is money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you have to pay is determined by how serious your crime is. You will have to post 10% of the amount set before you can get discharged from jail. If you don’t go to 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 must call the Logan County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you have all the pertinent information, 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

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is never a fun thing, but thankfully, its easy. To start with, figure out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If this is the case, you can’t use the services of a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they won’t accept a check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the prisoner will get released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you can’t afford it yourself, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually charge a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and sometimes charge a minimum charge of $100. This is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bondsman may ask to use assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Jail Policies and Procedures

Intake Procedures / Booking

The intake process is made up of the following steps:

  • They’ll put you in a holding cell. If the jail is busy, you will have to wait a while to get processed.
  • The first step is that you will have to answer a number of questions, like what is your full legal name, your address, birthdate and an emergency contact.
  • You will also be asked about your psychological and medical history.
  • You will be given an inmate ID.
  • You will get fingerprinted.
  • You will have your mugshot taken.
  • All personal property will be taken from you and stored until you get discharged from jail.
  • You will then be allowed to make a phone call in order to talk to a member of your family, friend, or bail bondsman.
  • If they expect that you will make bail and be released quickly, they will let you wear your street clothes, but if you are not expected to make bail quickly you you will be given a jail uniform – the jumpsuit.

Have you ever been arrested and gone through processing at jail? If you have, you should tell your story so other people can learn from your experience. How long did you have to wait in the holding cell? How did the guards treat you? Can you share any secrets that will help others get through jail intake?

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged from jail takes anywhere from 10 minutes to hours or even all day long. In other words the faster you can pay your bail, the sooner you will get let go. It also depends on whether or not you’ve been given a cash bond amount or if a magistrate must decide on how much your bail will be. For minor charges, you will be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and know the date of your release, expect to get released that morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you need to begin your jail sentence, it is recommended that you follow the rules and turn yourself in willingly. For a warrant, go to the jail, in the reception area, and let them know that think that there is a warrant out for your arrest. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, and if so, you will be taken into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report at the time and date that the sentence order lists. Be sure that you don’t show up late. Make sure that you only bring necessary items with you, such as your drivers license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as the sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates must list the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail. Your visitor’s names will go in a log of approved visitors for the requesting inmate. Each visitor must provide a photo ID when visiting. Visitors showing up late or without a visiting order will not be able to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies change often, so visit the official jail site before you go to the jail to visit.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that getting locked up in the Logan County jail is quite unpleasant, eventually you will settle into the daily routine. Inmates get an alarm to wake up at about 6:00AM, and then roll call. You will then get breakfast. When you finish eating 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 Logan 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 Logan 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 inmates at Logan County Jail might change, so be sure to double check the official website before 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.
