Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you are locked up, your main thought is when and how to get out. After booking, your bail amount will be determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can 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 do bail out you must promise to be there for your court date, and you must not leave the area.

In most cases, prisoners will be given early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while they’re in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be allowed to participate in work release. Either you will have to go back to jail every day after work, or you could get to move to a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Bail is money that you have to pay to get out of jail until you go to court. The amount you will have to pay is determined by the crime you are charged with. You will have to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total set before you can get out of jail. If you miss your court appearance, whoever put up your bail money will lose that money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you must call the Pushmataha County Jail. If know the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will let you know the bail amount. You can also check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but most of the time, its easy if you have the money. First, figure out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you won’t be able to use a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail will not take a check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will get released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you might need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually charge a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and sometimes with a minimum charge of $100. This is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman will usually require that they use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond.

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. The discharge process may take anywhere between 10 minutes to many hours. So, the faster you post bail, the sooner you will get discharged from jail. It also might depend on if you’ve been given a cash bond amount or if the judge has to figure out how much your bail will be. For a minor offense, 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 are given a discharge date, expect to get discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If you have a, or if you have to start a jail sentence, you should do the right thing and turn yourself into the authorities. In the case of an outstanding warrant, report to the jail, and tell the intake officer that believe that there could be a warrant for your arrest. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if so, you will be taken into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, go down to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Ensure that you don’t show up late. Just bring things that are allowed when you turn yourself in, for example a driver’s license or even ID, prescription medication, and a official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates need to list the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitors will be entered in a log of visitors as an authorized visitor. Each visitor has to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Any visitors showing up late or that does not have a visting order will not be allowed to attend visitation.
The Pushmataha County Jail visitation procedures can change, so it would be wise to review the jail site before you try to visit an inmate.

Get A Lawyer

You only get so many phone calls when you get arrested, so it is a good idea to get a friend or relative to locate a lawyer when you talk to them. You’re probably asking yourself ‘why do I need an attorney?’ You can represent yourself if you reall want to, but, a criminal defense lawyer will advise you about your rights, protect your interests and show you the way through the criminal justice system. The faster you get an attorney working on your situation, the better your chances.

For more detailed information on this, read: Find an Attorney

Public Defender

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of being incarcerated in the Pushmataha County jail is quite unpleasant, in time you will get used to the daily routine. Expect an alarm for wake-up at 6:00AM, and next you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will eat breakfast. When you finish eating 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 Pushmataha 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 Pushmataha 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 someone in jail could change, so be sure to double check the the Pushmataha County Jail website when send money 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.
