Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you are arrested and put in jail, your primary thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail is determined by the magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you must agree to be there for your court date, and until then you are not permitted to leave town.

In most cases, prisoners will be given time off in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and act right while in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be allowed to do work release. You will be required to return to the jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you might be permitted to live in a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until your court date. The amount of bail that is set depends on the seriousness of your charges. You will need to pay to the courts ten percent of the total set so you can be released. If you fail to show up for your court date, 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 will need to call the jail. If you’ve got the pertinent information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know the bail amount. Also, you can see the bail amount on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is never fun, but thankfully, it’s simple to do if you have the money. To start with, you need to find out if it is a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you will not be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. Cash only – they will not take checks. When you’ve paid bail, the inmate will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually have a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and sometimes charge a minimum charge of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and must be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman will in most cases ask to use assets as collateral for the bond.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of being incarcerated in Sauk County Jail And Huber Center is very scary, you will soon settle into the daily routine there. You will get a wake-up alarm each morning at 6:00am, and next you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will have breakfast. After 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 Sauk County Jail And Huber Center, 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 Sauk County Jail And Huber Center 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 inmates might change, so it would be best to double check the the Sauk County Jail And Huber Center website when send money to someone in jail 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.
