Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you are locked up, your primary thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, a bail amount is set by the magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either be released, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you will have to agree to go to your court date, and until that day you won’t be allowed to go out of town.

In most cases, inmates can earn time off in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and conduct themselves properly while in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to stay jail at the end of the day after work, or you could get to live in a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will have to pay depends on the crime you’ve been charged with. You will need to pay 10 percent of the total amount that was determined in order for you to be released from jail. If you fail to show up for court, whoever put up your bail money will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail will need to call the Randolph County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you have all the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you how much their bail is. Also, you can see the bail amount on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but fortunately, it’s really easy if you have the money. First of all, figure out if they have a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you won’t be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail can’t take a personal check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will get released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you just don’t have the money, you should use a bail bondsman. They usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and usually have a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman will in most cases request to use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will be allowed to leave jail. The discharge process can take from 30 minutes to hours or even all day long. In simple terms, the quicker you post bail, the quicker you will be released. Also, how fast you get released might depend on whether you have a cash bond amount or if a magistrate still needs to determine the bail amount. For minor charges, you will get booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and know the discharge date, you should plan to be released that morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If there is a, or if you need to start a jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you do the right thing and turn yourself in. If it is for a warrant, report to the jail processing area, and tell them that you think there may be an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. 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, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. When reporting to serve a sentence, report to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be sure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Just bring required items when you go to jail, like a driver’s license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you must provide each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail before anyone can visit them. Your visitors will be put in the visitors log as an authorized visitor.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in the Randolph County jail is very scary, soon you will get accustomed to the daily routine there. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up at about six in the morning, and next you’ll have roll call. Next, you will have breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will be required to work in the work program or other activity that you are assigned. 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 Randolph County Jail, 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 Randolph County Jail 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 Randolph County Jail inmates could change, so visit the official website when 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.
