Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you are in jail, your primary thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, a bail amount is decided either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this might mean that you will either be released, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you will have to promise to show up for court, and you must not leave town.

Usually, an inmate will earn time off for good behavior if they follow the rules and act right while locked up.

If you follow the rules, you might be given work release detail. You will either have to return to jail each day when you’re finished at your job, or you may be allowed to live 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 court system in order to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will be required to pay all depends on how serious your crime is. You will need to pay to the courts ten percent of the total that was determined so you are able to be released from jail. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, the person that bailed you out of jail will lose that money.

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 you have all the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know how much their bail is. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is no fun, but usually, it’s simple to do if you have the money. First, figure out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you can’t get a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail won’t take a check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the person will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, of if you can’t pay it, you should use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and in most cases have a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman will in most cases use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged takes between 10 minutes to all day. In other words the quicker bail is posted, the sooner you will get discharged. How quickly you get discharged can depend on whether you have a cash bond or if a magistrate needs to figure out how much your bail will be. For a minor offense, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and are given a date of your release, you should plan to get discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

out against you, or if you must begin your sentence in jail, you really should do the right thing and turn yourself into the authorities. If it is for a warrant, go down to the jail, in the reception area, and let them know that you think they might have a warrant out for your arrest. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, and if you do, you will be taken into jail custody. If it is for a jail sentence, report on the date and time that the sentence order requires you to. Be sure that you are not late. Just bring necessary items with you, for example your drivers license or photo ID, prescription medication, as well as the official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates must provide each visitor’s name to the jail. Your visitor’s information will be put in the log as an Authorized visit. Each and every visitor must provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Any visitors arriving late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Jail visitation policies are always changing, so it would be wise to review the jail site before you try to go to visitation.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in the Maverick County jail is something you wish you could avoid, soon you will settle into the routine that is set for you. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up every morning at six in the morning, and then you’ll have roll call. You will then have breakfast. After 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 Maverick 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 Maverick 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 inmates at Maverick County Jail changes, so you should review the official Maverick County Jail site when send money 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.
