Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you’re locked up, your only thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through booking, bail will be decided either by bail schedule or magistrate. If no bail is set this can mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you do bail out you must agree to be in court on your court date, and until then you must not travel out of the county.

Typically, a prisoner can earn an early release in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and conduct themselves properly while in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. Either you will have to go back to jail at the end of the day when you’re finished with work, or you might be allowed to sleep in a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Your bail is money that you are required to pay in order to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you have to pay all depends on the crime you’ve been charged with. Someone you know will need to put up 10 percent of the total that was set before you can get out of jail. If you don’t go to your court date, the person that bailed you out of jail will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you need to call the jail. If know the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never fun, but most of the time, it is really easy if you have the money. First of all, you need to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only”. If this is the case, you can’t use a bail bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they will not take checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the person will get released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you just can’t afford it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and usually with a minimum charge of $100. This will not be returned to you and has to be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman will in most cases use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Tell Your Story

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will get discharged from jail. The discharge process can take anywhere from 30 minutes to quite a few hours. Or, simply, the faster you can pay your bail, the faster you will get released. How quickly you get discharged can depend on whether you’ve been given a cash bond amount or if a judge still needs to decide on your bail amount. For a minor offense, you will simply 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 discharged at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If the police have a, or if you need to start your sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the law and turn yourself in willingly. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go to the jail, in the reception area, and tell the intake officer that think that there is an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if there is one, you will be taken into jail custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be very careful that you are not late. Just bring allowed items with you, such as a driver’s license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, and the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

The inmate must give each visitor’s full name to the jail. Your visitor’s names will go in the visitation log for the inmate. Every visitor will be required to provide identification. Visitors showing up late or that is not an approved visitor will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
Visitation procedures frequently change, so make sure that you check the official site before you try to visit an inmate.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

If you break the jail rules, an inmate’s ability to use the phone could be reduced or eliminated completely, as part of the punishment.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of getting locked up in Warren County Jail is no fun, soon you will become accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up at about 6:00 AM, and then roll call. Then you will get 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 Warren 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 Warren 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 someone in jail at Warren County Jail is always changing, so you should visit the the Warren County Jail website before you send any money.

    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.
