Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you are incarcerated, your main thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail is determined using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you are required to agree to be there for your court date, and until that date you are not permitted to leave town.

Usually, prisoners at Land O’ Lakes Detention Facility will earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and area a good inmate while they are in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to do work release. You will be required to stay the jail every day after work, or you might be allowed to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until your trial. The amount you will have to pay is determined by the crime you’ve been charged with. Someone will have to post 10 percent of the total amount set before you can get out of jail. If you don’t go to your court date, the person that bailed you out of jail won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail need to call the jail. If know the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you the bail amount. You can also find out how much their bail is online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is never fun, but in some cases, it is simple to do if you have the money. To start with, find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you can’t use a bail bondsman. Cash only – they won’t accept a personal check. Once you have paid the bond, the person will be released to your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, or you just don’t have the money, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bondsmen generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set by the magistrate, and sometimes with a minimum of $100. This money is non-refundable and must be paid in cash. If the bail is exceptionally high, the bondsman will ask to use your personal assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

Discharge Procedures

When you post bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. This process takes anywhere between 15 minutes to quite a few hours. In other words the faster you can pay your bail, the faster you will get discharged from jail. It also will depend on whether you’ve been given a cash bond amount or if a magistrate needs to determine how much to set your bail at. For a minor offense, you will simply be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served out your jail sentence and know the date of your release, you should expect to get released at any time that day – but usually in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If the sheriff has a, or if you need to begin your jail sentence, it is highly recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself into the authorities. For a warrant, report to the jail processing area, and tell them that you think they might have a warrant for your arrest. A record check will be run, and if so, you will be taken into the sheriff’s custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, report to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order states. Be sure that you are not late. Only bring allowed items when you go, like your drivers license or even state issued ID, prescription medication, as well as a sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates must give each visitor’s full name to the jail. Your visitor’s names will be put in the visitors log for the inmate. Each and every visitor will be required to provide acceptable photo identification. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
Visitation procedures change often, so it would be wise to double-check the official site before you go to the jail to visit.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of spending time in Land O’ Lakes Detention Facility is very scary, you will soon become accustomed to the routine that is set for you. All inmates get an alarm for wake-up at about six in the morning, and next they’ll do roll call. Then 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 Land O’ Lakes Detention 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 Land O’ Lakes Detention 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 procedure to send funds to inmates at Land O’ Lakes Detention Facility is always changing, so we suggest that you review the the Land O’ Lakes Detention Facility website before 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.
