Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you’re locked up, your primary thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, a bail amount is determined either by bail schedule or magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this may mean that you will either be released, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are are released you must promise to go to your court date, and until that date you can’t leave the county.

Usually, prisoners in the Emery County Jail are given an early release in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and area a good inmate while in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to do work release. You will have to go back to the jail each day after work, or you may be allowed to move to a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to get out of jail until your trial. The amount you will be required to pay all depends on the seriousness of your crime. You will have to post 10% of the amount that was set in order to be released. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, whoever posted your bail will lose that money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will need to call the Emery County 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 the bail amount. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but fortunately, it’s really easy if you have the money. First of all, you need to know if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If this is the case, you won’t be able to get a bondsman. Cash only – the jail can’t take a check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the inmate will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just can’t afford to pay it, you might need to use a bail bondsman. They generally charge a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set, and sometimes charge a minimum charge of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman will usually ask to use your assets as collateral.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged from jail will take between 15 minutes to quite a few hours. Or, simply, the quicker bail is posted, the sooner you will get discharged. It also can depend on whether you’ve been given a cash bond amount or if a judge needs to figure out the amount of bail to be set. For minor charges, you will get booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and have a discharge date, you should expect to get discharged that morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you need to begin your sentence in jail, it is highly recommended that you do the right thing and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go to the jail intake center, 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 are reporting to serve out your sentence, go to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order lists. Ensure that you are not late. Make sure that you only bring necessary items when you go to jail, like a driver’s license or your ID, prescription medication, and the official sentencing order.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that getting locked up in Emery County Jail is something you wish you could avoid, in time you will get accustomed to the daily routine there. All inmates get an alarm for wake-up at 6:00 AM, and next they’ll do roll call. Then you will have breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will have 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 Emery 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 Emery 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 process for sending money to people in jail is likely to change, so we suggest that you double check the the Emery County Jail website when you send any money.

    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.
