Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you are in jail, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve been booked, your bail is set either by bail schedule or magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you do bail out you will have to promise to be there for your court date, and in the meantime you are not permitted to travel out of the county.

Typically, a prisoner will be given time off for good behavior if they respect the rules and area a good inmate while in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be given work release detail. Either you will have to return to the jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you could have the chance to sleep in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Bail is money that you are required to pay to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you have to pay is dictated by how serious your charges are. You will have to pay 10 percent of the total amount that was determined before you can be released from jail. If you don’t show up for your scheduled court date, whoever paid your bail will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You must call the jail or the county courthouse. If know the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they will let you know how much their bail is. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Stanton County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but in some cases, it is very simple to do. First, you need to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you will not be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Cash only – they will not take checks. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the person will be released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it, you might need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally charge you a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and sometimes charge a minimum of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and has to be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman will in these cases ask to use your personal assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will be discharged from jail. The discharge process can take between 30 minutes to quite a few hours. In other words the faster you can post bail, the faster you can get out of jail. How quickly you get discharged can depend on whether you have a bond amount or if a magistrate still needs to determine the bail amount. For lesser charges, you will get booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have served out your jail sentence and are given a date of your release, plan to be discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

out against you, or if you have to report to start a sentence, you really should follow the law and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. For a warrant, report to the jail intake center, and tell the intake officer that you think there may be an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. A record check will be run, and if they verify that you have one, they will take you into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, go to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be very careful that you are not late to report. Only bring required items when you go, for example your drivers license or your ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and a sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you need to give each visitor’s full name to the jail before anyone can visit them. Your visitor’s information will go in a Visiting log as an Authorized visit. Every visitor is required to provide identification. Anyone arriving late or that does not have a visting order will not be able to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies frequently change, so double-check the official jail site before you visit an inmate.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

Phone calls that inmates are allowed to make from jail are made through a jail approved pre-paid phone account or phone card . Phone calls made in jail are usually more expensive than phone calls made outside of jail. Inmates are able to make phone calls, with restrictions on how often you can use the phone, but inmates must keep in mind lots of people want to use the phone – so you have to share. If you break the rules, phone privileges might get cut back or cut altogether.

Court Information

Get A Lawyer

If you get arrested, you have particular rights, the most important of which is that you have the right to request an attorney. You are only allowed to make so many phone calls in jail, so it is a good idea to have a friend or family member locate an attorney when you call. You’re probably asking yourself ‘why do I need an attorney?’ While you are not required to have one, an attorney will advise you about your rights, look after your best interests and help you understand the court system in your county. The sooner you hire a lawyer to represent you and work on your situation, the better your chances.

Public Defender

If you’ve been arrested and cannot afford a lawyer, the courts will assign you a public defender, which is a free lawyer. The Public Defender has access to investigators, crime scene and forensics experts and social case workers. Public Defenders are actual attorneys who are admitted to the State Bar and are legally licensed to practice law as an agent of the court.

Have you or someone you know used a Public Defender? What was your experience?

All court records are public records. Court records are comprised of a case file with a sheet called a docket sheet and all documents in the case. You are able to access court records via the online service, or by going to the Clerk of Court’s office.

Clerk of Court

The Clerk of Court is a member of the court who manages court records. The Clerk of Court also administer the oath for any court participant who must be under oath, and also read the verdict when delivered by the jury. All records related to your court case are maintained at Clerk of Court.

Fees

Magistrate

A Magistrate is the person that rules on your case in court. Magistrates do different functions, such as determing how much your bail will be, writing arrest warrants, and presiding over preliminary and procedural court proceedings and detention proceedings.

Pre-Sentencing

Your pre-sentencing report is prepared to include information about your background and information about the defendant’s life and history, which the magistrate judge will take into account when deciding on the sentence. Information will be requested from the defendant, their family, and in some cases the victim. Bear in mind that you can request to get a copy of this report before sentencing, so you can correct any inaccurate information.

Sentencing

If you get convicted of a crime during your trial, you will be sentenced. The presiding judge in your case will weigh several options when determining your sentence, including community service, house arrest, and probation, to even incarceration in jail or prison. Depending on the severity of the crime, you may be taken into custody immediately, or you could get a date to turn yourself into jail to do your time.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in Stanton County Jail is very scary, eventually you will settle into the routine that is set for you. You should expect an alarm for wake-up at 6:00am, and next they’ll do roll call. Then you will get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will have to 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 Stanton 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 Stanton 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 money to Stanton County Jail inmates could change, so it would be best to review the site before 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.
