Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you are incarcerated, your primary thought is about when you get out. After you’ve been booked, a bail amount will be determined by the magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you are required to agree to show up for court, and in the meantime you can’t leave town.

Usually, a prisoner at Mayes County Jail are given time off in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and conduct themselves properly while in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be granted work release. You will either have to stay jail each day when you’re finished working, or you might be allowed to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you will be required to pay depends on how serious your crime is. Someone will have to put up 10 percent of the total amount that was determined so you can get discharged from jail. If you don’t go to your court appearance, whoever posted your bail will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you must call the Mayes County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you have all the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Mayes County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never a fun thing, but fortunately, it’s simple to do if you have the money. To start with, find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you won’t be able to get a Bail Bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they won’t take a check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the person will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you just don’t have the money, you might need to use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen usually charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and sometimes have a minimum charge of $100. This money will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman might require that they use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of being incarcerated in the Mayes County jail is something you wish you could avoid, soon you will get used to the daily routine there. Expect a wake-up alarm each morning at 6:00 AM, and next you’ll have roll call. You will then have breakfast. Following breakfast you will be required 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 Mayes 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 Mayes 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 funds to someone in jail at Mayes County Jail is always changing, so it would be best to check the official Mayes County Jail site before 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.
