Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you are in jail, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve gone through booking, bail will be decided using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If no bail is set this may mean that you will either be released, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are released from jail you will have to promise to be in court on your court date, and you are not allowed to travel out of the county.

In most cases, inmates in the Oneida County Correction Facility will be given time off for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and area a good inmate while they’re in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to do work release. You will be required to go back to the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished at your job, or you could be allowed to sleep in a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system to get out of jail until you go to court. The amount of bail that is set all depends on what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You will have to pay 10% of the amount that was determined so you are able to get discharged from jail. If you don’t show up for court, that person 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 will need to call the jail. If you have all the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know what their bail is set at. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Oneida County Correction Facility website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Bailing out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but usually, it is really easy if you have the money. First, you have to find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you can’t use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they can’t take a check. When you’ve paid bail, the person will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

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

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of spending time in Oneida County Correction Facility is very scary, soon you will settle into the routine that is set for you in jail. You will get an alarm to wake up at six in the morning, and then you’ll have roll call. You will then get breakfast. After breakfast, you will 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 Oneida County Correction 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 Oneida County Correction 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 rules for sending funds to inmates is always changing, so visit the the Oneida County Correction Facility website when you send money to an inmate.

    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.
