Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

If you are locked up, your only thought is about getting out. After booking, bail is decided either by bail schedule or magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are are released you are required to agree to show up for court, and in the meantime you must not leave the county.

In most cases, inmates are given time off in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and act right while in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be granted work release. You will either have to stay the jail each day when you’re finished at your job, or you could be permitted to move into 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 in order to be released from jail pending trial. The amount of bail that is set is determined by the crime you are charged with. You or someone you know will have to pay ten percent of the total that was determined so you are able to bail out of jail. If you miss court, the person that paid your bail won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You will need to call the jail. If you’ve got the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they will let you know the bail amount. Also, you can see the bail amount on the White Pine County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but thankfully, it is easy. To start with, you need to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you will not be able to use the services of a bondsman. Cash only – the jail can’t accept checks. When you’ve paid bail, the inmate will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, of if you can’t pay it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and usually have a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman will in these cases use your personal assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

  • Your fingerprints will be taken.
  • You will get your mugshot taken.

  • You will then be allowed to make a telephone call to get in touch with a member of your family, friend, or bondsman to arrange bail.
  • If you are expected to be released shortly, you might be allowed to keep wearing your own clothes, if not you will be issued a jail uniform – the jumpsuit.

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will be discharged from jail. The discharge process will take anywhere from 10 minutes to all day long. In simple terms, the faster bail is posted, the quicker you will get out of jail. It also depends on whether you’ve been given a bond amount or if a magistrate needs to determine how much to set your bail at. For a minor offense, you will be booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have served your sentence and are given a release date, you should expect to get released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you need to start your sentence, you should do the right thing and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. For a warrant, go down to the jail, and tell them that believe that there could be an outstanding warrant 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 jail custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report at the time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be very careful that you don’t show up late. Be sure to only bring allowed items when you go to jail, for example a driver’s license or even photo ID, prescription medication, and the copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates have to give the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail in advance. This information will be put in the visitation log as an Authorized visit. Each and every visitor has to provide acceptable photo identification. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or without a visiting order will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures at White Pine County Jail are always changing, so it would be wise to double-check the jail site before go to the jail to 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 . These phone calls are generally pricier than regular phone calls. Phone calls are restricted on how often you can use the phone, but you should keep in mind that every inmate wants to use the phone too, so they can call their family. If you are under any sort of disciplinary procedure, phone calls could be reduced or eliminated completely, as part of the punishment.

Phone Number: (775) 293-6509

Sending Mail to Inmates

All inmate mail must be mailed using the actual US Postal Service, and not courier or delivery, or hand delivered. You shouldn’t use any other method of mail or package delivery. You must write the inmate’s name, inmate ID, and the jail address on the outside of the letter that you send. Don’t mail anything in a package, envelope with padding, bag, or an envelope containing metal parts.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of being incarcerated in the White Pine County jail is quite unpleasant, you will soon become accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. You will get an alarm to wake up each morning at 6am, and then roll call. You will then eat breakfast. When you finish eating 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 White Pine 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 White Pine 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 someone in jail can change, so double check the official website when send funds 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.
