Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you are locked up, your primary thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve been booked, bail is set either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If there is no bail 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 do bail out of jail you must promise to be in court on your court date, and you are not allowed to leave the county.

In most cases, inmates are given an early release in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and area a good inmate while in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to do work release. You will be required to return to the jail each day when you’re finished working, or you may be permitted to move to a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is money that you have to pay to get out of jail until your trial. The amount you will be required 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 that was determined so you can bail out of jail. If you don’t show up for court, the person that paid 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 have to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you have all the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Loup County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but usually, it’s simple to do if you have the money. To start with, you need to find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you can’t use a Bail Bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they won’t take checks. Once the cash bond has been paid, the person 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 will need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually have a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set, and sometimes have a minimum of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman will in most cases use assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of getting locked up in Loup County Jail is very scary, you will soon settle into the routine that is set for you. You will get a wake-up alarm at 6:00AM, and next they’ll do roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. Following breakfast you will have to work 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 Loup 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 Loup 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 inmates could change, so be sure to check the site when send money to someone in jail 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.
