Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you are incarcerated, your only thought is when and how to get out. After booking, a bail amount is determined either by bail schedule or magistrate. If there is no bail set this might mean that you will either be released, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you must promise to show up for court, and you can’t leave town.

Typically, prisoners at Nacogdoches County Jail can earn an early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and conduct themselves properly while incarcerated.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. You will be required to go back to the jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you might get to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is money that you have to pay to the courts in order to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you will have to pay depends on what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. Someone you know will need to put up 10% of the amount that was determined in order for you to bail out of jail. If you miss your court appearance, whoever posted your bail will lose all of the bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You have to call the Nacogdoches County Jail. If know the pertinent information, including 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 online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but in some cases, it’s easy if you have the money. First, you have to find out if it is a Cash Only Bond. If it is, you can’t use the services of a bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – the jail can’t take a personal check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the inmate will be released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should try a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually charge a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and in most cases charge a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and has to be paid in cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bail bondsman will request to use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of serving a jail sentence in the Nacogdoches County jail is no fun, in time you will settle into the routine that is set for you. You will get an alarm for wake-up at about 6am, and then roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will be required 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 Nacogdoches 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 Nacogdoches 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 money to jail inmates might change, so we suggest that you visit the site when you send money to an inmate 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.
