Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

If you are in jail, your primary thought is when and how to get out. After booking, your bail will be decided by a special judge called a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this might mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you must agree to go to your court date, and until that day you are required not to go out of town.

Typically, prisoners in the Bradford County Correctional Facility will be given early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and don’t cause any problems while they are in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be given work release detail. You will be required to return to 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 to get out of jail until you go to court. The amount you have to pay is dictated by the crime you’ve been charged with. Someone will have to post 10 percent of the total amount that was determined so you are able to be released from jail. If you don’t show up for your court date, the person that paid your bail will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you will have to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you have all the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will let you know what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is no fun, but thankfully, it’s very simple to do. First, you need to know if they have a “Cash Bond Only”. If this is the case, you can’t use a 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 to 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 to pay it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and usually charge a minimum of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman will usually require that they use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged from jail will take anywhere from 10 minutes to all day. In simple terms, the quicker you post bail, the quicker you will get released. It also depends on whether or not you’ve got a bond amount or if a judge still needs to figure out your bail amount. For minor offenses, you will be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have served out your jail sentence and know the date of your release, you should plan to be discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

warrant out for your arrest, or if you need to begin your sentence in jail, you should follow the law and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go down to the jail, in the reception area, and tell an officer that you think there may be a warrant out for your arrest. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if so, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, report at the time and date that the sentence order lists. Make sure that you aren’t late. Just bring approved items with you, for example a driver’s license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and a sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates need to provide each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail in advance of the visit. This information will be put in the visitation log for the requesting inmate. Each and every visitor has to provide acceptable photo identification. Anyone showing up late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be able to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures at Bradford County Correctional Facility frequently change, so you should visit the official site before you go to visitation.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in the Bradford County jail is very scary, eventually you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. Prisoners get an alarm for wake-up at six in the morning, and next you’ll have roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast participate 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 Bradford County Correctional Facility, 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 Bradford County Correctional Facility 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 process for sending funds to Bradford County Correctional Facility inmates can change, so we suggest that you visit the official website before 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.
