Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you are incarcerated, your main thought is when and how to get out. After booking, your bail amount is decided by a special judge called a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this might mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you will have to agree to go to your court date, and you are not permitted to go out of town.

In most cases, an inmate in the Weber Couny Jail can earn time off for good behavior when they follow the rules and conduct themselves properly while in jail.

If you follow the rules, you may be granted work release. You will either have to go back to the jail each day after work, or you could be allowed to live in a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Your bail is money that you have to pay in order to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you will have to pay is dictated by the seriousness of your charges. You will have to pay ten percent of the total that was determined before you can get out of jail. If you fail to show up for court, the person that paid your bail won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you will need to call the Weber Couny Jail or the County Courthouse. If you have all the pertinent information, including name, address and date of birth, they will tell you how much their bail is. Also, you can find out how much their bail is online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but in some cases, its very simple to do. First, you have to find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you will not be able to use a bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they can’t take a check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the prisoner will be released. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and in most cases with a minimum of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman may ask to use assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

  • You will also be asked about your mental and medical history.
  • You’ll be given an inmate number.
  • You will get fingerprinted.
  • You will have a front and profile photo taken for your mugshot.
  • Any property you have will be taken from you and stored until you get released.
  • You will then be allowed to make a telephone call to get in touch with family, friends, or bail bondsman.

Tell Your Story

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged from jail will take anywhere from 30 minutes to all day. In simple terms, the quicker you post bail, the faster you will get out of jail. It also depends on if you have a bond amount or if a magistrate still needs to figure out how much to set your bail at. For a minor charge, you will be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have served out your jail sentence and know the discharge date, plan to get released that morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you must start your sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the rules and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go to the jail processing area, and tell the intake officer that you think there is an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, and if there is one, they will take you into custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go down to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order lists. Make sure that you aren’t late. Make sure that you only bring required items when you go to jail, for example your drivers license or photo ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as a official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates must provide information about each visitor to the jail in advance of any visit. Your visitor’s names will go into the log for the requesting inmate.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of spending time in Weber Couny Jail is very scary, soon you will settle into the routine that is set for you. Inmates get a wake-up alarm at 6am, and then roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. Following breakfast you will have to work in the work program that you’ve been assigned to. 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 Weber Couny 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 Weber Couny 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 funds to jail inmates might change, so be sure to check the the Weber Couny Jail website 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.
