Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, if you’re in jail, your primary thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, a bail amount will be determined by the magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this may mean that you will either get released, pending trial, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you do bail out you will have to promise to show up for court, and until that date you must not leave the county.

Typically, prisoners in the Nez Perce County Adult Detention Center are given time off in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and area a good inmate while they’re in jail.

If you follow the rules, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. Either you will have to go back to the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished at your job, or you may be permitted to move into a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Your bail is how much money that you will be required to pay in order to be released from jail pending trial. Your bail amount all depends on the seriousness of your charges. You will have to pay to the courts ten percent of the total that was set before you can get discharged from jail. If you miss court, whoever paid your bail won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you need to call the Nez Perce County Adult Detention Center or the County Courthouse. If know the person’s information, including name, address and date of birth, they will let you know the bail amount. You can also check their bail amount and status online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is never fun, but usually, its easy. First of all, find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If so, you can’t get a bondsman. Cash only – the jail will not accept a check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the inmate will be released into your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you just don’t have the money, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will usually charge you a fee of 10-15% of the total amount of bail set, 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 might request to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will get discharged from jail. Getting discharged may take anywhere between 15 minutes to all day. Or, simply, the faster you post bail, the sooner you will get discharged from jail. Also, it depends on whether you’ve got a bond amount or if a judge has to determine the bail amount. For minor charges, you will simply be booked and then released on your recognizance without having to pay bail. When you have completed your jail sentence and have a date of your release, plan to get released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

warrant out for your arrest, or if you need to begin your jail sentence, you should follow the rules and turn yourself in willingly. If you have a warrant, go down to the jail, and tell an officer that believe that there could be a warrant out for your arrest. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if they verify that you have one, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, go to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Ensure that you are not late. Make sure that you only bring things that are allowed when you go to jail, such as a driver’s license or even state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, along with your doctor’s prescription, as well as a copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you must list information about each visitor to the jail. Your visitor’s information will be put into the visitors log as an approved visitor. Each and every visitor will have to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Any visitors showing up late or that is not an approved visitor will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures can change, so it would be wise to visit the official jail site before you go to visitation.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

All phone calls from jail are with a pre-paid phone card or account, or are collect calls . Jail phone calls are typically more costly than phone calls made outside of jail. There are certain restrictions about when and how often you can use the phone, but inmates should keep in mind that a long line can form at the phones, because everyone wants to use the phone, too. If you break the rules and are disciplined, an inmate’s ability to use the phone may be limited or eliminated completely, as part of the punishment.

Phone Number: 208-799-3132

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of being incarcerated in Nez Perce County Adult Detention Center is something you wish you could avoid, you will soon get used to the daily routine there. Prisoners get a wake-up alarm each morning at six in the morning, and then roll call. You will then eat breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast participate 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 Nez Perce 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 Nez Perce 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 procedure to send funds to people in jail changes, so you should review the official website when send funds 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.
