Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you are in jail, your main thought is when and how to get out. After booking, your bail is determined by a special judge called a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this may mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you will have to promise to show up for court, and until then you won’t be permitted to travel out of the county.

In most cases, inmates in the Mccormick Correctional Institution will be given time off for good behavior when they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while incarcerated.

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 every day when you’re finished at your job, or you might have the chance to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you have to pay to the courts to get out of jail until your trial. The amount you have to pay all depends on the crime you are charged with. Someone will have to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total amount that was set in order to get discharged from jail. If you don’t show up for your court appearance, the person that bailed you out of jail will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you need to call the Mccormick Correctional Institution. If you have all the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you the bail amount. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the Mccormick Correctional Institution website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but fortunately, its really easy. To start with, figure out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If this is the case, you will not be able to use a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they can’t take a personal check. Once you have paid the bond, the person will be released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. They usually charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and usually charge a minimum of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and must be paid in cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bail bondsman will request to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will get discharged from jail. Getting discharged can take anywhere between 10 minutes to quite a few hours. In other words the faster you can post bail, the faster you will get discharged. Also, it depends on whether or not you’ve been given a cash bond or if the magistrate still needs to decide on the amount of bail to be set. For a minor charge, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and have a release date, you should expect to be discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If there is a, or if you need to report to start a sentence, it is highly recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, report to the jail, and let them know that you think there is an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. A record check will be run, and if you do, you will be taken into jail custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Ensure that you are not late. Make sure that you only bring allowed items when you turn yourself in, such as a driver’s license or even photo ID, prescription medication, and a official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to provide the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail in advance. Your visitors will be entered in a log of visitors as an approved visitor. All visitors will be required to provide proof of identification. Any visitors showing up late or that is not an approved visitor will not be allowed to attend visitation.
The Mccormick Correctional Institution visitation procedures can change, so it would be wise to visit the official jail site before you try to visit an inmate.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of getting locked up in the Mccormick County jail is very scary, eventually you will become accustomed to the daily routine. You should expect a wake-up alarm at six in the morning, and then you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will have breakfast. After breakfast, participate in the work program that you’ve been assigned to. 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 Mccormick Correctional Institution, 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 Mccormick Correctional Institution 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 money to someone in jail at Mccormick Correctional Institution can change, so you should review the the Mccormick Correctional Institution website before send money 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.
