Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you are incarcerated, your main thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, your bail is determined by the magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be released, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out of jail you are required to promise to be in court on your court date, and until then you are required not to leave the area.

Usually, inmates can earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and area a good inmate while they’re in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be given work release detail. Either you will have to stay jail at the end of the day when you’re finished working, or you might be permitted to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you have to pay depends on the crime you are charged with. You or someone you know will have to pay ten percent of the total that was set before you can be released from jail. If you don’t show up for your court date, whoever paid your bail will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail must call the jail or the county courthouse. If you have all the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Grafton County Department Of Corrections Facility website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but fortunately, its really easy. First of all, you need to know if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you will not be able to get a bondsman. Cash only – they won’t take a personal check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the inmate will be released to your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, of if you can’t pay it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and in most cases have a minimum fee of $100. This money is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bail bondsman may ask to use your assets as collateral for the bond.

  • They’ll also ask about your psychological and medical history.
  • You will be issued an inmate ID.
  • You will get fingerprinted.
  • They will take your mugshot.
  • Any property you have will be taken from you and stored until you get discharged from jail.
  • They will allow you to make a phone call in order to call family, friends, or bail bondsman.
  • If they expect that you will make bail and be released quickly, you might get to wear your own clothes, if not you you will have to change into a jail jumpsuit.

Discharge Procedures

When you post bail, you will get released from jail. This process takes between 30 minutes to many hours. Or, simply, the faster bail is posted, the sooner you will get out of jail.

For a minor charge, you will be booked and get released without having to post bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and are given a release date, you should expect to be released anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.

How To Turn Yourself In

issued for your arrest, or if you have to start your sentence, you should do the right thing and turn yourself into the authorities. If you have a warrant, go down to the jail intake area, and tell someone that you think there is a warrant out for your arrest.

If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go down to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order lists. Ensure that you aren’t late. Only bring necessary items when you go to jail, for example your drivers license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the copy of the sentencing order.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that spending time in Grafton County Department Of Corrections Facility is something you wish you could avoid, soon you will get used to the daily routine. You will get an alarm for wake-up at 6am, and next they’ll do roll call. Then you will get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will be required 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 Grafton County Department Of Corrections Facility, 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 Grafton County Department Of Corrections Facility 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 someone in jail might change, so you should review the official website before you send money to an inmate 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.
