Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you are arrested and put in jail, your main thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve been booked, your bail is determined by a special judge called a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you are required to agree to show up for court, and you are required not to leave town.

In most cases, prisoners will earn an early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and area a good inmate while in jail.

If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. Either you will have to go back to the jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you might have the chance to live in a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay to get out of jail until you go to court. The amount of bail that is set depends on the crime you are charged with. Someone you know will need to put up ten percent of the total that was determined so you are able to be released from jail. If you fail to show up for court, the person that bailed you out of jail will lose that 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 Beaver County Jail. If you have all the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you how much their bail is. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Beaver County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Bailing out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but fortunately, its simple to do if you have the money. To start with, you need to know if it is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you will not be able to use a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail can’t accept checks. Once you have paid the bond, the inmate will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and sometimes with a minimum fee of $100. This is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman might require that they use your personal assets as collateral.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to leave jail. This process will take from 30 minutes to hours or even all day long. Or, simply, the quicker you post bail, the quicker you can get out of jail. It also will depend on if you’ve been given a bond amount or if the magistrate has to determine the amount of bail to be set. For minor charges, you will simply be booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have served your sentence and know the release date, plan to be discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

out against you, or if you need to start your sentence, you should follow the law and turn yourself in willingly. If it is for a warrant, go down to the jail intake center, and tell someone that you think there may be an outstanding warrant for your arrest. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if you do, you will be taken into jail custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, go down to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be sure that you don’t show up late. Be sure to only bring required items with you, for example a driver’s license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, and the sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates need to provide each visitor’s full name to the jail before anyone can visit them. This information will be put in the visitors log as an Authorized visit. All visitors will be required to provide acceptable photo identification. Anyone arriving late or that does not have a visting order will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
Visitation procedures at Beaver County Jail are always changing, so we suggest that you review the jail site before you go to visitation.

Court Information

Get A Lawyer

If you get arrested, you have certain rights, one of these is the right to request an attorney. You are only allowed to make so many phone calls in jail, so it is important to have a friend or relative find an attorney when you talk to them. You might be asking yourself ‘why do I need an attorney?’ While you are not required to have one, a criminal defense lawyer will advise you about your rights, help protect your interests and help you through the legal system that you are now faced with. The faster you hire an attorney to represent you and work on your charges, the better off you’ll be.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of getting locked up in Beaver County Jail is very scary, soon you will settle into the routine that is set for you. Prisoners get an alarm for wake-up each morning at 6:00AM, and then roll call. Then you will eat breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will have to work 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 Beaver 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 Beaver 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 at Beaver County Jail changes, so you should review the official website when 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.
