Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you are arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through booking, a bail amount will be set either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If there is no bail set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are released from jail you will have to promise to be there for your court date, and in the meantime you are required not to leave town.

In most cases, prisoners at Franklin County Law Enforcement And Detention Complex are given time off in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and act right while locked up.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to participate in work release. Either you will have to go back to jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you might get to live in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Your bail is money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you have to pay is dictated by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You will need to pay to the courts ten percent of the total that was determined in order to be released. If you don’t go to your court date, 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 must call the Franklin County Law Enforcement And Detention Complex. If know the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will tell you how much their bail is. Also, you can check their bail amount and status online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but usually, its very simple to do. First, figure out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If this is the case, you will not be able to get a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they can’t accept a check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the prisoner will be released to your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should try a bail bondsman. They usually have a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and sometimes have a minimum of $100. This money will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman will use your personal assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will get discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail takes anywhere from 15 minutes to all day. So, the quicker bail is posted, the faster you will get discharged from jail. Also, it will depend on whether or not you’ve been given a bond amount or if a magistrate must determine the amount of bail to be set. For minor offenses, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served your sentence and have a release date, you should plan to be discharged between 9am and noon.

How To Turn Yourself In

In the event there is a, or if you must start a jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the rules and turn yourself into the authorities. If you have a warrant, report to the jail intake area, and tell an officer that you think they might have a warrant out for your arrest. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, and if you do, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, report to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Ensure that you don’t show up late. Only bring necessary items with you, such as your drivers license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, and a sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you have to list the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail before anyone can visit them. Your visitor’s information will be put into the visitors log for the requesting inmate. Each visitor is required to provide a photo ID when visiting. Anyone arriving late or that does not have a visting order will be turned away.
Visitation procedures can change, so you should review the official site before you go to visitation.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are made through a jail approved pre-paid phone account or phone card . Phone calls made in jail are much more expensive than phone calls made at home. There is no limit to when you can make phone calls, how long you can talk, and how often you can make calls, but you should keep in mind that there are a limited number of phones, so all the inmates must share phone time. If you break the jail rules, your 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 Franklin County Law Enforcement And Detention Complex is very scary, eventually you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you. Expect an alarm for wake-up at 6:00 AM, and next they’ll do roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. After breakfast, you will be required 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 Franklin County Law Enforcement And Detention Complex, 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 Franklin County Law Enforcement And Detention Complex 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 money to inmates could change, so you should visit 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.
