Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, if you’re arrested and put in jail, your main thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, a bail amount is set by a special judge called a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be released, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you must promise to be there for your court date, and in the meantime you will not be permitted to leave town.

In most cases, prisoners in the Gadsden Correctional Facility will earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they follow the rules and conduct themselves properly while they are in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to do work release. You will have to go back to jail every day when you’re finished with work, or you could get to move into a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount of bail that is set depends on what crime you are charged with and how serious it is. You or someone you know will have to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total set in order for you to get discharged from jail. If you miss your court appearance, whoever posted your bail will lose all of the 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 or the county courthouse. If know the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they will tell you the bail amount. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Gadsden Correctional Facility website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but most of the time, its very simple to do. To start with, find out if it is a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you will not be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. Cash only – they won’t take a check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the prisoner will be released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, of if you can’t pay it, you should use a bail bondsman. They usually charge a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and in most cases with a minimum fee of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman will not be returned to you and must be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman will ask to use assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

You can find a local bail bondsman visit our page about: Bail bondsman

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. Getting discharged may take between 10 minutes to many hours. In other words the quicker bail is posted, the sooner you will be released. Also, how fast you get released will depend on if you have a cash bond amount or if a judge still needs to determine your bail amount. For a minor charge, you will be booked and get released without having to post bail. When you have completed your jail sentence and know the date of your release, expect to get discharged between 9am and noon.

How To Turn Yourself In

If you have a, or if you have to start your sentence, you should do the right thing and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. For a warrant, report to the jail, and tell an officer that you think they might have a warrant 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 there is one, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. If it is for a jail sentence, report to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order states. Ensure that you aren’t late. Make sure that you only bring necessary items when you go, like your drivers license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as the sentencing order.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that spending time in Gadsden Correctional Facility is very scary, you will soon settle into the routine that is set for you. Inmates get a wake-up alarm at about 6:00AM, and then you’ll have roll call. Then you will have breakfast. When you finish breakfast you will be required 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 Gadsden Correctional Facility, 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 Gadsden Correctional Facility 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 funds to someone in jail at Gadsden Correctional Facility changes, so we suggest that you double check the official website when you send any funds.

    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.
