Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you’re in jail, your only thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail is set by the magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this may 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 are released from jail you are required to agree to go to your court date, and in the meantime you won’t be permitted to go out of town.

Usually, a prisoner can earn an early release in exchange for good behavior when they respect the rules and area a good inmate while they are in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to participate in work release. You will be required to return to jail every day after work, or you might be permitted to move to a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you are required to pay to get out of jail pending trial. The amount you have to pay all depends on how serious your charges are. You or someone you know will have to pay ten percent of the total that was set so you can be released from jail. If you don’t show up for court, the person that paid your bail will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will need to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they will let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but usually, it’s very simple to do. First of all, find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you can’t get a bail bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they won’t take checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the inmate will be released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you just can’t afford it, you might need to use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and usually charge a minimum of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman may require that they use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will get released from jail. Getting discharged takes between 30 minutes to all day long. So, the faster you can pay your bail, the faster you will get discharged from jail. Also, it depends on if you’ve got a bond amount or if the judge needs to figure out how much to set your bail at. For minor charges, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have served your sentence and know the discharge date, plan to get released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If the police have a, or if you need to start a jail sentence, it is highly recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself in. For a warrant, go down to the jail, in the reception area, and tell someone that think that there is an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, go down to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Be very careful that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Make sure that you only bring things that are allowed with you, for example your drivers license or even photo ID, prescription medication, as well as a copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you need to give each visitor’s name to the jail in advance of any visit. Your visitor’s information will be put in the visitors log as an authorized visitor. All visitors will be required to provide proof of identification. Visitors showing up late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
Visitation procedures frequently change, so we suggest that you review the official jail site before you try to go to visitation.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of spending time in the Henry County jail is very scary, you will soon get used to the routine that is set for you in jail. You should expect an alarm for wake-up at six in the morning, and next they’ll do roll call. After roll call you will eat breakfast. After breakfast, you will have 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 Henry County Corrections 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 Henry County Corrections 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 jail inmates changes, so it would be best to visit the official Henry County Corrections Facility site before you send money to an inmate.

    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.
