Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you’re in jail, your primary thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail will be decided using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. 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 you are required to promise to be there for your court date, and in the meantime you won’t be permitted to go out of town.

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

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you may be allowed to do work release. You will either have to stay jail each day when you’re finished working, or you may get to sleep in a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Your bail is money that you have to pay in order to be released from jail pending trial. The amount you will be required to pay is dictated by the seriousness of your charges. You or someone you know will have to pay 10% of the amount set in order to get discharged from jail. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, that person will lose that bail money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You will need to call the Sheboygan County Jail. If know the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know the bail amount. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the Sheboygan County Jail site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but most of the time, it is easy if you have the money. First, you have to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If so, you won’t be able to get a bail bondsman. Cash only – they will not take a check. When you’ve paid bail, the inmate will be released to your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you just don’t have the money, you should use a bail bondsman. They will generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and usually with a minimum fee of $100. This money will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman may require that they use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of being incarcerated in Sheboygan County Jail is quite unpleasant, in time you will get accustomed to the routine that is set for you. All inmates get an alarm for wake-up at six in the morning, and then you’ll have roll call. You will then have breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will have to 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 Sheboygan 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 Sheboygan 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 someone in jail at Sheboygan County Jail changes, so we suggest that you double check the site before you send funds 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.
