Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you’re arrested and put in jail, your main thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, bail is decided by a special judge called a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you are released from jail you will have to agree to show up for court, and until then you will not be permitted to leave the county.

Typically, prisoners will earn time off in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and act right while they are in jail.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be given work release detail. Either you will have to return to the jail at the end of the day after work, or you could get to move to a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Your bail is money that you will be required to pay in order to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you will be required to pay depends on the seriousness of your crime. Someone will have to pay to the courts 10% of the amount that was determined in order to get discharged from jail. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, whoever put up your bail money won’t get their money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You need to call the jail. If know the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will tell you how much their bail is. You can also find out how much their bail is on the Pickens County Adult Detention Center site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is never a fun thing, but fortunately, its really easy. To start with, you need to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond. If it is, you can’t get a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail won’t take a check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the person 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 their bail has been set too high, or you can’t afford it yourself, you should try a bail bondsman. Bondsmen generally have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and in most cases with a minimum of $100. This money will not be returned to you and the bondsman only accepts cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bondsman will in these cases require that they use your assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. The discharge process can take between 30 minutes to many hours.

Also, it might depend on whether or not you’ve been given a bond amount or if the magistrate still needs to figure out your bail amount. For lesser charges, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have served out your jail sentence and have a release date, you should plan to get released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

When reporting to serve a sentence, go down to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order states. Be sure that you are not late. Just bring required items with you, for example your drivers license or even ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, and the sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of spending time in Pickens County Adult Detention Center is quite unpleasant, soon you will get accustomed to the daily routine there. All inmates get a wake-up alarm every morning at 6:00 AM, and next they’ll do roll call. You will then eat breakfast. When you finish breakfast participate 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 Pickens County Adult Detention 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 Pickens County Adult Detention 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 could change, so visit the the Pickens County Adult Detention Center website before you send money 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.
