Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you are incarcerated, your primary thought is about when and how you will get out. After booking, bail will be determined either by bail schedule or magistrate. If 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 do bail out you are required to promise to go to your court date, and until that day you are not permitted to leave town.

Usually, inmates at Noble County Jail will be given time off in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and conduct themselves properly while they are in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be given work release detail. You will either have to go back to the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished working, or you could get to move into a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay in order to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you will be required to pay is dictated by the seriousness of your crime. You or someone you know will have to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total that was set so you are able to get out of jail. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, whoever paid your bail will lose that money.

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 have to call the Noble County Jail. If know the person’s info, like 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 Noble County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is never a fun thing, but fortunately, its really easy if you have the money. First of all, find out if they have a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you will not be able to use a bail bondsman. Cash only – they won’t accept a personal check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the prisoner will be released to your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, of if you can’t pay it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and sometimes charge a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman will usually ask to use assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged takes anywhere between 10 minutes to hours or even all day long. In simple terms, the quicker you post bail, the sooner you can get out of jail. How quickly you get discharged will depend on whether you’ve been given a cash bond amount or if the magistrate still needs to figure out the amount of bail to be set. For minor offenses, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have served out your jail sentence and know the release date, you should plan to be released that morning.

If it is for a jail sentence, report to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Make sure that you are not late. Be sure to only bring required items when you turn yourself in, like a driver’s license or even state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and a sentencing order from court.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of getting locked up in Noble County Jail is quite unpleasant, in time you will get accustomed to the daily routine there. All inmates get an alarm for wake-up at 6:00am, and next they’ll do roll call. Then you will have breakfast. Following breakfast you will 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 Noble 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 Noble 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 rules for sending money to someone in jail changes, so be sure to visit the official Noble County Jail site when send funds to someone in jail 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.
