Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you are incarcerated, your only thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, a bail amount will be decided either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If there is no bail set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you must agree to go to your court date, and in the meantime you won’t be permitted to leave the county.

In most cases, inmates are given time off in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and area a good inmate while in jail.

If you follow the rules, you may be granted work release. You will either have to stay the jail every day after work, or you might be permitted to sleep in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay to be released from jail until your trial. Your bail amount is dictated by how serious your crime is. Someone you know will need to put up 10 percent of the total amount that was set so you are able to bail out of jail. If you fail to show up for your court appearance, that person will not get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you have to call the Beaver County Jail. If know the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the Beaver County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is never fun, but usually, it’s simple to do if you have the money. First, find out if they have a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you can’t use a Bail Bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they can’t take a check. Once you have paid the bond, the prisoner will be released. 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 their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually charge a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and in most cases have a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman will in these cases use your assets as collateral for the bond.

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. The discharge process takes anywhere between 30 minutes to all day. In other words the faster you post bail, the faster you will get discharged. How quickly you get discharged can depend on if you’ve got a bond amount or if a judge needs to figure out the amount of bail to be set. For minor offenses, you will simply be booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have served out your jail sentence and are given a discharge date, plan to be discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If the sheriff has a, or if you need to start a jail sentence, you really should follow the rules and turn yourself into the authorities. If you have a warrant, report to the jail processing area, and tell the intake officer that think that there is 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 so, they will take you into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, go down to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be sure that you don’t show up late. Be sure to only bring required items with you, like your drivers license or photo ID, prescription medication, and the official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates need to list the name and date of birth of each visitor to the jail before anyone can visit them. Your visitor’s names will be put in the log as an approved visitor. Every visitor is required to provide identification. Any visitors showing up late or that does not have a visting order will be turned away.
Jail visitation policies are always changing, so make sure that you check the official jail site before you try to visit an inmate.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of being incarcerated in the Beaver County jail is quite unpleasant, you will soon get accustomed to the daily routine there. Inmates get an alarm to wake up at about 6:00 AM, and next they’ll do roll call. Then you will get breakfast. When you finish eating 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 Beaver 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 Beaver 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 someone in jail at Beaver County Jail can change, so we suggest that you check the official Beaver County Jail site before you send funds 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.
