Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you are arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail is decided by the magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this may mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are are released you will have to agree to be there for your court date, and until that day you are required not to leave town.

Usually, prisoners will be given time off in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and conduct themselves properly while they are in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be given work release detail. You will have to go back to jail at the end of the day when you’re finished at your job, or you could have the chance to live in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system to get out of jail until your court date. The amount of bail that is set is determined by the crime you’ve been charged with. You will need to pay 10 percent of the total set before you can get out of jail. If you miss your court appearance, the person that paid your bail 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 must call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know how much their bail is. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Auglaize County Correctional Center website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but usually, its really easy. First, figure out if they have a Cash Only Bond. If so, 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 take a check. When you’ve paid bail, the person will be released to your care. If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you might need to use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will usually charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and usually charge 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 usually require that they use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will be allowed to leave jail. This process will take anywhere from 10 minutes to hours or even all day long. In other words the faster bail is posted, the faster you can get out of jail. Also, it can depend on whether or not you’ve been given a bond amount or if a judge has to figure out how much your bail will be. For minor offenses, you will simply be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you get to the end of your sentence and have a date of your release, you should plan to get released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If there is a, or if you need to begin your sentence in jail, it is highly advisable that you do the right thing and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, report to the jail processing area, and tell them that you think there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if so, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order lists. Be very careful that you are not late to report. Only bring approved items when you go, such as a driver’s license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, and a copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you need to provide each visitor’s full name to the jail in advance. Your visitors will be put into the visitors log for the requesting inmate. Every visitor is required to provide a photo ID when visiting. Any visitors that gets to visitation or any visitors that are not approved to visit will be turned away.
The Auglaize County Correctional Center visitation procedures can change, so it would be wise to review the official Auglaize County Correctional Center jail site before you try to visit an inmate.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of getting locked up in Auglaize County Correctional Center is very scary, you will soon get accustomed to the daily routine there. You should expect a wake-up alarm at about 6:00AM, and then you’ll have roll call. You will then get breakfast. After 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 Auglaize 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 Auglaize 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 process for sending money to jail inmates could change, so be sure to check the official Auglaize County Correctional Center site when 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.
