Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you’re in jail, your only thought is when and how to get out. After booking, your bail will be determined by the magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you do bail out you must agree to go to your court date, and until that date you must not leave the county.

In most cases, a prisoner at Tillman County Jail can earn time off in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and conduct themselves properly while locked up.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will either have to go back to the jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you may be allowed to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Your bail is money that you have to pay to the courts in order to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you will be required to pay depends on the crime you are charged with. You or someone you know will have to post 10% of the amount that was determined so you can bail out of jail. If you miss court, the person that paid your bail will lose all of the bail 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 Tillman County Jail or the County Courthouse. If know the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can find out how much their bail is online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never fun, but in some cases, it is very simple to do. First of all, find out if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you will not be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they can’t accept a personal check. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the prisoner will be released into your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you just can’t afford it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. They will generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and in most cases have a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman may ask to use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

To contact a bail bondsman go to: Bail bondsman

Have you ever used the services of bail bondsman either for yourself, a family member or friend? If you have, please share your experience in a comment below, and let us know how it worked out.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in the Tillman County jail is something you wish you could avoid, soon you will get used to the daily routine. Prisoners get a wake-up alarm each morning at 6:00am, and then roll call. Then you will get breakfast. Following breakfast you will be required to 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 Tillman 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 Tillman 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 inmates is always changing, so be sure to visit the the Tillman County Jail website when you send money to an inmate 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.
