Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you’re in jail, your primary thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail is decided by a special judge called a magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this might mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you will have to agree to be in court on your court date, and you are not permitted to leave the area.

In most cases, prisoners can earn time off in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and don’t cause any problems while they’re in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be given work release detail. You will have to go back to jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you could have the chance to sleep in a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Bail is money that you have to pay to the courts in order to be released from jail until your trial. The amount of bail that is set all depends on the crime you’ve been charged with. Someone you know will need to pay ten percent of the total that was set so you are able to bail out of jail. If you don’t go to court, the person that paid your bail 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 will need to call the jail. If you have all the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know how much their bail is. You can also see the bail amount on the Floyd County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but usually, its really easy. First of all, you need to know if they have a Cash Only Bond. If so, you won’t be able to get a Bail Bondsman. Cash only – they can’t accept checks. Once the cash bond has been paid, the prisoner will be discharged. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you can’t afford it, you should try a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally charge you a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and in most cases have a minimum fee of $100. This money will not be returned to you and has to be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman will in these cases request to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of being incarcerated in the Floyd County jail is something you wish you could avoid, soon you will get used to the routine that is set for you in jail. Expect a wake-up alarm each morning at 6:00 AM, and next they’ll do roll call. Then you will eat breakfast. Following breakfast participate 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 Floyd 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 Floyd 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 funds to Floyd County Jail inmates could change, so you should visit the official Floyd County Jail 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.
