Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you’re locked up, your only thought is about getting out. After booking, your bail amount is determined either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

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

Typically, a prisoner in the Mcculloch County Jail are given time off in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and conduct themselves properly while in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will have to go back to the jail each day when you’re finished working, or you could be permitted to sleep in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the courts to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you will be required to pay is determined by what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You will have to post 10% of the amount that was determined in order for you to be released. If you fail to show up for court, the person that bailed you out of jail will lose that money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you will need to call the Mcculloch County Jail or the County Courthouse. If know the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they will let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Mcculloch County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never fun, but thankfully, it is really easy if you have the money. First, find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you will not be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they won’t accept a check. When you’ve paid bail, the person will be released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you should use a bail bondsman. They will usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and sometimes with a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and is typically cash only. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman will usually ask to use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that serving a jail sentence in Mcculloch County Jail is no fun, eventually you will become accustomed to the routine that is set for you in jail. You will get an alarm for wake-up at about 6:00 AM, and next you’ll have roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. After 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 Mcculloch 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 Mcculloch 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 might change, so visit the official Mcculloch County Jail site before 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.
