Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you’re incarcerated, your main thought is about how to get out. After you’ve been booked, your bail amount will be determined using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you are released from jail you must agree to be there for your court date, and in the meantime you will not be permitted to leave town.

Typically, inmates are given time off for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and don’t cause any problems while in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will be required to go back to jail each day after work, or you could get to live in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Bail is money that you have to pay to the court system in order to be released from jail until your trial. The amount of bail that is set depends on the crime you are charged with. You will have to put up ten percent of the total that was 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 not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You have to call the Carroll County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they will tell you what their bail is set at. You can also see the bail amount on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never fun, but fortunately, it’s very simple to do. To start with, figure out if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you can’t get a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they can’t accept a personal check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the person will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just don’t have the money, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and sometimes charge a minimum charge of $100. This money will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bail bondsman will usually request to use your 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 being incarcerated in Carroll County Jail is quite unpleasant, in time you will get used to the daily routine there. Prisoners get an alarm to wake up each morning at 6:00AM, and then roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will 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 Carroll 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 Carroll 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 jail inmates can change, so be sure to check the official Carroll County Jail site before you send money 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.
