Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you are arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, bail will be decided by the magistrate. If 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 must promise to be there for your court date, and until that day you are not permitted to leave the county.

Usually, inmates are given an early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and act right while locked up.

If you follow the rules, you may be granted work release. You will either have to stay jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you might be allowed to sleep in a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you have to pay to the courts to be released from jail pending trial. The amount of bail that is set depends on the crime you’ve been charged with. Someone will have to post 10 percent of the total amount that was determined before you can be released. If you don’t go to your court appearance, whoever paid your bail will lose that bail money.

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 know the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know the bail amount. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Cibola County Correctional Center site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never fun, but most of the time, it is really easy if you have the money. To start with, you need to know if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If this is the case, you will not be able to use the services of a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they will not accept a personal check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will be released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you you should hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally charge you a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and in most cases have a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman may ask to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond.

  • You will be given an inmate ID number.
  • You will get fingerprinted.
  • You will have a front and profile photo taken for your mugshot.

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged from jail can take anywhere from 10 minutes to all day long. In other words the faster bail is posted, the faster you can get out of jail. Also, how fast you get released will depend on if you’ve been given a cash bond amount or if the judge has to determine the bail amount. For lesser charges, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served out your jail sentence and have a date of your release, expect to be discharged anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.

How To Turn Yourself In

If the police have a, or if you must begin your sentence in jail, it is highly advisable that you do the right thing and turn yourself in. For a warrant, report to the jail processing area, and tell an officer that you think there may be an outstanding warrant for your arrest. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if they verify that you have one, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go down to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order states. Ensure that you aren’t late. Only bring necessary items when you turn yourself in, for example your drivers license or even photo ID, prescription medication, and the official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to provide each visitor’s name to the jail. Your visitors will go into a log of approved visitors for the inmate that requested the visitor. All visitors must provide acceptable photo identification. Any visitors showing up late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will be turned away.
Visitation procedures frequently change, so you should review the official Cibola County Correctional Center jail site before you try to go to visitation.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that spending time in the Cibola County jail is very scary, eventually you will get used to the daily routine there. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up each morning at 6:00am, and next you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will have breakfast. After 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 Cibola County Correctional Center, 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 Cibola County Correctional Center 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 process for sending money to inmates at Cibola County Correctional Center might change, so we suggest that you check the official website before you send any funds.

    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.
