Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you’re in jail, your only thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail amount is determined 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 have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you must agree to go to your court date, and until that date you will not be permitted to leave the county.

In most cases, an inmate can earn time off for good behavior if they follow the rules and area a good inmate while in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to return to jail each day when you’re finished at your job, or you could be allowed to move into a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you have to pay is determined by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You or someone you know will have to pay ten percent of the total set so you are able to bail out of jail. If you don’t go to your court date, whoever put up your bail money will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will have to call the Stutsman County Correctional Center. If you have all the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they will tell you what their bail is set at. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Stutsman County Correctional Center site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is no fun, but fortunately, its very simple to do. First of all, you need to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, 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 – they won’t take a personal check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the inmate will be discharged. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you just can’t afford it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and in most cases have a minimum of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman will in these cases use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will get discharged from jail. Getting discharged from jail will take anywhere from 15 minutes to quite a few hours. So, the faster you post bail, the faster you will get discharged. Also, how fast you get released might depend on whether you’ve got a bond amount or if the magistrate still needs to determine how much to set your bail at. For a minor offense, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. If you have served a sentence in jail and have a discharge date, you should plan to get released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

In the event there is a, or if you need to report to start a sentence, you really should do the right thing and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. For a warrant, report to the jail processing area, and tell them that you think there is a warrant 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 there is one, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Ensure that you are not late. Be sure to only bring necessary items with you, for example your drivers license or even state issued ID, prescription medication, and a copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates have to list each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitors will be put in a log of visitors for the inmate. Every visitor must provide acceptable photo identification. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
Jail visitation policies frequently change, so we suggest that you double-check the official Stutsman County Correctional Center jail site before you go.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of spending time in the Stutsman County jail is no fun, in time you will become accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. You should expect an alarm to wake up at about 6am, and then roll call. Then you will have breakfast. When you finish eating 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 Stutsman 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 Stutsman 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 rules for sending funds to someone in jail at Stutsman County Correctional Center might change, so we suggest that you visit the site when you send any money.

    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.
