Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you’re in jail, your main thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, a bail amount will be set by the magistrate. If there is no bail set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you will have to promise to go to your court date, and in the meantime you are required not to leave the area.

In most cases, an inmate in the Marshall County Correctional Complex are given an early release in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and act right while they are in jail.

If you follow the rules, you may be granted work release. You will have to return to the jail at the end of the day after work, or you may get to move into a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay to get out of jail until your trial. The amount of bail that is set depends on how serious your charges are. You will have to pay ten percent of the total that was determined in order for you to be released. If you fail to show up for court, the person that paid your bail won’t get the bail money back.

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. If you have all the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they will let you know what their bail is set at. You can also see the bail amount on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but usually, it’s really easy. First of all, you have to find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you will not be able to use a bail bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they can’t accept a personal check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the prisoner will be released into 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 bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it, you you should hire a bail bondsman. They will usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and usually with a minimum charge of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bondsman will require that they use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will get released from jail. The discharge process will take between 30 minutes to all day long. In other words the quicker you post bail, the faster you will be released. Also, it depends on if you have a cash bond or if a judge needs to decide on the amount of bail to be set. For a minor charge, you will simply be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served your sentence and are given a discharge date, you should plan to get discharged anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you must start your sentence, it is highly recommended that you follow the rules and turn yourself in willingly. If it is for a warrant, report to the jail reception area, and tell someone that you think there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if they verify that there is a warrant for your arrest, they will take you into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report on the date and time that the sentence order requires you to. Make sure that you are not late. Only bring allowed items when you go to jail, for example a driver’s license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and a copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

This information will go in a log of approved visitors for the inmate that requested the visitor. All visitors has to provide identification. Any visitors arriving late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will be turned away.
Jail visitation policies are always changing, so review the jail site before you visit an inmate.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in Marshall County Correctional Complex is no fun, you will soon settle into the daily routine there. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up each morning at 6:00am, and then you’ll have roll call. You will then have breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will be required to work in the work program or other activity that you are assigned. 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 Marshall County Correctional Complex, 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 Marshall County Correctional Complex 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 rules for sending money to inmates changes, so it would be best to double check the the Marshall County Correctional Complex website when 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.
