Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

If you’re arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is about when you get out. After you’ve been booked, bail will be determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you must agree to go to your court date, and until that day you are required not to travel out of the county.

In most cases, a prisoner are given time off for good behavior if they follow the rules and conduct themselves properly while they’re 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 go back to the jail at the end of the day after work, or you may be allowed to sleep in a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is money that you are required to pay in order to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will be required to pay is determined by the crime you’ve been charged with. You will have to post 10 percent of the total that was set before you can be released. If you don’t show up for court, whoever paid your bail won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you must call the jail or the county courthouse. If you have all the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know what their bail is set at. You can also see the bail amount on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but fortunately, it is easy if you have the money. To start with, you have to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you can’t use the services of a bondsman. Cash only – they can’t take checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the inmate will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, of if you can’t pay it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and in most cases with a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and must be paid in cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bail bondsman will usually request to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

  • They’ll also ask you about your psychological and medical history.
  • You’ll be given an inmate ID number.
  • You will get fingerprinted.
  • You will get your mugshot taken.
  • Any property you have will be taken away from you and stored until you get released from jail.
  • You will get to use the phone to contact a family member, friend, or bail bondsman.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. The discharge process will take anywhere between 30 minutes to quite a few hours. In simple terms, the quicker you post bail, the quicker you will be released. How quickly you get discharged might depend on if you’ve been given a cash bond or if the judge must determine the amount of bail to be set. For a minor offense, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served out your jail sentence and are given a date of your release, you should expect to get discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If there is a, or if you have to begin your jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you do the right thing and turn yourself in willingly. If you have a warrant, go to the jail, and tell the intake officer that think that there is a warrant out for your arrest. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Make sure that you are not late to report. Make sure that you only bring required items when you go to jail, such as your drivers license or state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, and a official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates need to give each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail in advance of any visit. Your visitor’s names will be entered into the visitation log as an Authorized visit. Every visitor will have to provide a photo ID when visiting. Anyone showing up late or that does not have a visting order will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies change often, so you should double-check the official Hillsborough County Department Of Corrections jail site before you go to the jail to visit.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

Inmates are able to make phone calls, with restrictions on when and how often you can use the phone, but you should keep in mind that there are a limited number of phones, so all the inmates must share phone time. If you are under any sort of disciplinary procedure, an inmate’s ability to use the phone could be reduced or eliminated completely.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of getting locked up in the Hillsborough County jail is something you wish you could avoid, soon you will become accustomed to the daily routine. Inmates get a wake-up alarm every morning at 6:00AM, and next you’ll have roll call. You will then eat breakfast. After breakfast, you will have to work in the program that has been assigned to you. 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 Hillsborough County Department Of Corrections, 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 Hillsborough County Department Of Corrections 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 Hillsborough County Department Of Corrections could change, so check the the Hillsborough County Department Of Corrections website when you send funds 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.
