Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you’re arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After booking, bail will be determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you will have to agree to show up for court, and until that day you can’t leave town.

In most cases, an inmate at Glasscock County Jail can earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and don’t cause any problems while in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be allowed to do work release. You will have to go back to the jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you may be allowed to live in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you have to pay to the courts to get out of jail until you go to court. The amount of bail that is set is determined by the crime you are charged with. You will have to pay 10 percent of the total that was set before you can be released from jail. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, the person that bailed you out of jail won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you have to call the jail or the county courthouse. If know the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they will let you know how much their bail is. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Glasscock 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 is easy. First of all, you need to know if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you can’t use a bondsman. Cash only – the jail won’t accept a personal check. 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 their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you will need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and usually with a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman will in most cases require that they use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Discharge Procedures

When you post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. The discharge process may take between 30 minutes to quite a few hours. So, the faster bail is posted, the sooner you will get let go. Also, how fast you get released can depend on whether or not you have a cash bond or if a judge has to determine your bail amount. For minor charges, you will be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and have a date of your release, plan to get released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of getting locked up in the Glasscock County jail is very scary, soon you will get used to the routine that is set for you. Prisoners get a wake-up alarm at about six in the morning, and next you’ll have roll call. Next, you will have breakfast. After breakfast, you will have 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 Glasscock 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 Glasscock 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 money to inmates could change, so it would be best to review the official Glasscock 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.
