Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you’re arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through booking, bail is decided either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If there is no bail set this may mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are released from jail you will have to agree to be there for your court date, and until that day you must not go out of town.

Typically, an inmate will earn an early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow 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 may be allowed to do work release. You will have to return to jail at the end of the day after work, or you might be allowed to move into a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Your bail is money that you will be required to pay in order to be released from jail pending trial. Your bail amount is dictated by how serious your charges are. Someone will have to put up 10% of the amount that was determined before you can get out of jail. If you fail to show up for court, whoever put up your bail money will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you need to call the Campbell County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know the bail amount. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the Campbell County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is no fun, but in some cases, it is really easy if you have the money. To start with, you need to know if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you won’t be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they won’t accept a personal check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the person will be released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and sometimes 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 bail bondsman will in these cases request to use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Discharge Procedures

When you post bail, you will get discharged from jail. The discharge process takes between 10 minutes to many hours. So, the faster bail is posted, the quicker you will get released. It also depends on whether or not you’ve been given a bond amount or if a magistrate needs to decide on your bail amount. For lesser charges, you will be booked and get released without having to post bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and are given a release date, you should plan to be released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

In the event there is a, or if you need to report to start a sentence, you should do the right thing and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, report to the jail, in the reception area, and let them know that you think there may be an outstanding warrant for your arrest. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if they find one, you will be taken into jail custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order requires you to. Ensure that you aren’t late. Make sure that you only bring necessary items when you turn yourself in, for example your drivers license or state issued ID, prescription medication, as well as a sentencing order from court.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in the Campbell County jail is very scary, eventually you will settle into the daily routine. You will get a wake-up alarm every morning at 6am, and then roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. After breakfast, you will be required to work 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 Campbell 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 Campbell 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 Campbell County Jail inmates could change, so we suggest that you visit the the Campbell County Jail website when you send funds 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.
