Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you are in jail, your main thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail amount will be determined using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you will have to agree to show up for court, and in the meantime you are required not to leave town.

Typically, inmates in the Crockett County Jail are given time off for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and area a good inmate while incarcerated.

If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to do work release. You will either have to return to jail at the end of the day when you’re finished at your job, or you might get to move to a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Bail is money that you have to pay to get out of jail until your court date. The amount you will have to pay is determined by how serious your crime is. Someone you know will need to pay 10 percent of the total set so you can bail out of jail. If you don’t go to your court date, whoever posted your bail won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you must call the Crockett County Jail. If you have all the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you how much their bail is. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Crockett County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but thankfully, it’s easy if you have the money. To start with, you need to know if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If this is the case, you won’t be able to get a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they won’t accept checks. Once the cash bond has been paid, the inmate 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 can’t afford it, you should try a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually have a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and usually with a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and is typically cash only. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman will in these cases require that they use your personal assets as collateral for the bond.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in Crockett County Jail is no fun, you will soon settle into the daily routine there. You should expect an alarm for wake-up at 6:00 AM, and then roll call. You will then have breakfast. Following 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 Crockett 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 Crockett 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 rules for sending money to inmates might change, so it would be best to double check the official Crockett County Jail site before send funds to someone in jail 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.
