Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you’re incarcerated, your main thought is about getting out. After booking, your bail is determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be released, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you will have to promise to show up for court, and until then you won’t be allowed to leave the county.

In most cases, prisoners at Tuscarawas County Jail are given time off for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and don’t cause any problems while incarcerated.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to return to jail at the end of the day when you’re finished working, or you may be allowed to move into a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you are required to pay to get out of jail until you go to court. The amount you will have to pay all depends on how serious your charges are. You or someone you know will have to put up 10% of the amount that was determined in order to be released from jail. If you don’t go to court, whoever paid your bail will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You need to call the jail. If know the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know how much their bail is. You can also see the bail amount on the Tuscarawas County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but usually, its easy. First of all, you have to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you will not be able to get a bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they will not take checks. Once the cash bond has been paid, the person will be released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you just can’t afford it, you should try a bail bondsman. Bondsmen generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and sometimes charge a minimum charge of $100. This money will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman will in most cases require that they use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that getting locked up in the Tuscarawas County jail is something you wish you could avoid, in time you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. You should expect a wake-up alarm at about six in the morning, and then roll call. After roll call you will have breakfast. When you finish breakfast participate 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 Tuscarawas 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 Tuscarawas 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 process for sending money to jail inmates is likely to change, so review the site before you send funds to an inmate.

    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.
