Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you’re arrested and put in jail, your main thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail is set using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are released from jail you will have to agree to be there for your court date, and until then you are required not to travel out of the county.

In most cases, a prisoner in the Llano County Jail will be given time off for good behavior if they follow the rules and conduct themselves properly while they are in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. You will either have to stay jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you may get to live in a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will be required to pay depends on the seriousness of your charges. You will have to pay to the courts ten percent of the total that was set in order for you to get out of jail. If you fail to show up for your scheduled court date, whoever put up your bail money won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will have to call the jail. If know the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know how much their bail is. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Llano County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but in some cases, it’s easy. To start with, you need to know if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you won’t be able to get a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail will not accept checks. Once you have paid the bond, the inmate will be released into your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should use a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and sometimes with a minimum fee of $100. This money will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bail bondsman will in most cases require that they use your assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Or, simply, the faster bail is posted, the sooner you will get released. How quickly you get discharged will depend on if you’ve got a bond amount or if a magistrate has to decide on the amount of bail to be set.

If it is for a warrant, go to the jail processing area, and tell someone that think that there is a warrant for your arrest. They will do a check to find out if there is an arrest warrant for you, and if they find one, you will be taken into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report at the exact time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Ensure that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Be sure to only bring necessary items when you go, like your drivers license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as a sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to list each visitor’s name to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s names will be put into the log for the requesting inmate. Every visitor will be required to provide proof of identification. Visitors that arrives for visitation late or without a visiting order will be turned away.
Visitation procedures are always changing, so make sure that you visit the official site before you go to visitation.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of spending time in Llano County Jail is quite unpleasant, in time you will become accustomed to the daily routine. You will get an alarm to wake up every morning at 6:00am, and next they’ll do roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will 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 Llano 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 Llano 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 Llano County Jail inmates might change, so it would be best to review the site when you send funds 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.
