Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you’re incarcerated, your main thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail is determined either by bail schedule or magistrate. If no bail is set this may mean that you will either be released, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you must promise to show up for court, and until that day you are not permitted to leave the area.

In most cases, a prisoner can earn time off for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and conduct themselves properly while they’re in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to do work release. You will either have to return to the jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you may have the chance to move into a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the court system in order to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you will be required to pay depends on how serious your crime is. Someone will have to put up ten percent of the total that was determined in order to bail out of jail. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, whoever put up your bail money will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will have to call the Lebanon County Correctional Facility or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will let you know how much their bail is. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Lebanon County Correctional Facility website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is never fun, but thankfully, it’s easy if you have the money. First, you have to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you can’t get a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they won’t take checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the prisoner will be discharged. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it, you should try a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually have a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and in most cases with a minimum charge of $100. This is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman will in these cases ask to use your assets as collateral.

Court Information

Get A Lawyer

If you get arrested, you have rights, and an important one is the right to request an attorney. You don’t get to make many phone calls when you get arrested, so it is a good idea to get a friend or family member to locate a lawyer when you talk to them. You might be thinking ‘but do I really need a lawyer’ You are not required to have an attorney for some criminal charges, a criminal defense lawyer can advise you of your rights, look after your best interests and show you the way through the criminal justice system that you are now faced with. The sooner you get a lawyer involved with your charges, the better.

Information will be collected from the person on trial, his or her family, and in some cases the victim of the crime. Bear in mind you can request to get a copy of your pre-sentencing report before sentencing, and make sure that you correct any mistakes that it contains.

Sentencing

After being convicted of a crime, you will then get sentenced. The presiding judge in your case will weigh several options when determining your sentence, which include community service to probation, to even incarceration in either jail (short term) or prison (long term). Depending on the severity of the crime, you could be taken into custody, right there in court, or given a date that you are supposed to report to jail to serve your jail time according to your sentence.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of being incarcerated in the Lebanon County jail is quite unpleasant, soon you will settle into the daily routine there. Expect an alarm for wake-up every morning at 6:00AM, and next they’ll do roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. When you finish eating 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 Lebanon 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 Lebanon 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 procedure to send funds to people in jail might change, so it would be best to check the official website when send funds 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.
