Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you are locked up, your only thought is about how to get out. After you’ve been booked, bail is decided either by bail schedule or magistrate. If there is no bail set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are are released you will have to agree to be in court on your court date, and in the meantime you must not go out of town.

Usually, inmates at Coke County Jail will be given early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and conduct themselves properly while incarcerated.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be given work release detail. Either you will have to go back to jail each day when you’re finished at your job, or you might be permitted to live in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the courts to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you have to pay all depends on the seriousness of your crime. You will need to pay 10% of the amount that was set so you are able to be released from jail. If you don’t show up for court, the person that bailed you out of jail will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail need to call the Coke County Jail or the County Courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s information, such as 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 jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but thankfully, it is really easy. First, you have to find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you won’t be able to get a Bail Bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they can’t accept a personal check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the person will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, or you just don’t have the money, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and sometimes have a minimum charge of $100. This money is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman will in these cases use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged may take between 15 minutes to hours or even all day long. Or, simply, the quicker you post bail, the faster you will get discharged. Also, it will depend on whether you’ve been given a cash bond or if a judge still needs to determine the bail amount. For a minor offense, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail.

How To Turn Yourself In

The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if they verify that you have one, they will take you into custody. If it is for a jail sentence, report at the exact time and date that the sentence order states. Be sure that you don’t show up late. Only bring things that are allowed when you go, such as a driver’s license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as a copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of serving a jail sentence in the Coke County jail is something you wish you could avoid, eventually you will get accustomed to the daily routine. Inmates get an alarm to wake up at about 6:00 AM, and next you’ll have roll call. You will then get breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will be required to work in the program that has been assigned to you. 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 Coke 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 Coke 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 process for sending funds to Coke County Jail inmates changes, so visit the official Coke County Jail site when 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.
