Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you are incarcerated, your primary thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail is decided either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either be released, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are released from jail you will have to promise to go to your court date, and until then you must not leave the area.

Usually, a prisoner in the Stephens County Jail will be given time off for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and conduct themselves properly while they’re in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. You will either have to stay jail every day when you’re finished working, or you could have the chance to live in a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you will be required to pay in order to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you have to pay all depends on the crime you are charged with. You will have to pay 10 percent of the total set so you are able to get discharged from jail. If you don’t go to your court appearance, the person that bailed you out of jail will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you have to call the jail or the county courthouse. If know the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can see the bail amount on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is no fun, but fortunately, it is simple to do if you have the money. First, you have to find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you can’t use the services of a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they won’t accept a check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the inmate will be released into your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you just don’t have the money, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually have a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set, and sometimes with a minimum charge of $100. This money is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman might use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Discharge Procedures

When you post bail, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged will take between 10 minutes to hours or even all day long. In simple terms, the quicker you post bail, the quicker you will get released. It also can depend on if you’ve got a cash bond amount or if a magistrate must decide on the bail amount. For a minor charge, you will get booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and are given a date of your release, you should expect to be discharged between 9am and noon.

How To Turn Yourself In

out against you, or if you need to start your sentence, it is recommended that you follow the law and turn yourself in. For a warrant, go down to the jail intake area, and let them know that you think they might have a warrant out for your arrest. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, and if they find one, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, go down to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order requires you to. Be sure that you are not late to report. Just bring things that are allowed when you go to jail, like a driver’s license or even photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, and a sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you must give the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail in advance of any visit. Your visitors will be put into the visitors log as an authorized visitor. Every visitor is required to provide identification. Anyone showing up late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
Jail visitation policies are always changing, so check the jail site before you go.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of getting locked up in the Stephens County jail is something you wish you could avoid, soon you will settle into the daily routine there. You will get an alarm to wake up every morning at 6:00 AM, and then you’ll have roll call. Next, you will have breakfast. After breakfast, participate 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 Stephens 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 Stephens 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 Stephens County Jail could change, so be sure to review the site when 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.
