Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you’re arrested and put in jail, your main thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, a bail amount will be set either by bail schedule or magistrate. If you don’t get a bail 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 are are released you must promise to go to your court date, and until that date you are required not to leave town.

In most cases, prisoners in the Juab County Jail can earn an early release in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and conduct themselves properly while they’re in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. Either you will have to stay the jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you might be permitted to move into a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you are required to pay to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you will have to pay depends on how serious your crime is. You will have to pay ten percent of the total that was set in order for you to get discharged from jail. If you don’t go to court, whoever posted your bail will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you need to call the Juab County Jail. If you’ve got the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know what their bail is set at. You can also check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but most of the time, it is easy if you have the money. To start with, you have to find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you can’t use a Bail Bondsman. Cash only – the jail can’t accept a check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the person will be released to your care. 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, or you just can’t afford it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and sometimes charge a minimum fee of $100. This will not be returned to you and must be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman may require that they use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged may take from 30 minutes to all day. So, the faster bail is posted, the faster you will get discharged from jail. How quickly you get discharged might depend on whether or not you have a cash bond or if the judge still needs to decide on your bail amount. For a minor offense, you will simply be booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have completed your jail sentence and are given a date of your release, you should expect to be discharged in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

out against you, or if you need to report to start a sentence, you really should do the right thing and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go down to the jail intake area, and let them know that you think there is a warrant for your arrest. A record check will be run, and if so, you will be taken into jail custody. If it is for a jail sentence, go to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order requires you to. Be sure that you are not late to report. Just bring necessary items with you, such as a driver’s license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to provide each visitor’s full name to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s information will be put in the visitation log as an Authorized visit. Each visitor will be required to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Visitors showing up late or that does not have a visting order will not be allowed to attend visitation.
The Juab County Jail visitation procedures can change, so it would be wise to visit the official 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 getting locked up in the Juab County jail is no fun, in time you will settle into the daily routine. All inmates get an alarm to wake up at 6:00AM, and next they’ll do roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will 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 Juab 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 Juab 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 jail inmates could change, so you should check the official Juab County Jail site before you send money to an inmate.

    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.
