Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you are locked up, your primary thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail will be set 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 have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you will have to promise to go to your court date, and until that day you are not permitted to leave the county.

Typically, a prisoner in the Cabarrus County Detention Facility will be given an early release in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and don’t cause any problems while they are in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be given work release detail. You will either have to return to jail at the end of the day after work, or you may be permitted to live in a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the courts in order to be released from jail until your court date. Your bail amount depends on how serious your charges are. You will need to post 10 percent of the total amount set in order to bail out of jail. If you don’t go to your court appearance, the person that paid your bail won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you must call the jail. If know the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never a fun thing, but most of the time, it is really easy if you have the money. First of all, figure out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you can’t get a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they won’t accept checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, of if you can’t pay it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and usually with a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman will ask to use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of spending time in the Cabarrus County jail is no fun, eventually you will settle into the daily routine there. Expect an alarm to wake up at about six in the morning, and next you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast participate 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 Cabarrus County Detention 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 Cabarrus County Detention 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 people in jail is always changing, so we suggest that you double check the official website before 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.
