Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you’re arrested and put in jail, your main thought is about getting out. After you’ve been booked, your bail amount will be set 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 do bail out you are required to promise to go to your court date, and until that day you are required not to go out of town.

Typically, inmates in the Graves County Restricted Custody Center will earn time off for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and don’t cause any problems while locked up.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to participate in a work release program. You will either have to return to jail each day after work, or you could be allowed to live in a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you have to pay to the court system to get out of jail until your court date. The amount of bail that is set is determined by the seriousness of your crime. Someone will have to pay 10 percent of the total that was determined in order for you to get out of jail. If you don’t go to your court date, whoever posted your bail will lose that money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out someone’s bail amount you need to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the pertinent information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you what their bail is set at. You can also see the bail amount on the Graves County Restricted Custody Center site.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but in some cases, it is really easy if you have the money. First, you need to know if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If so, you won’t be able to use a Bail Bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – they will not accept a personal check. Once the cash bond has been paid, 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 the amount of bail set is large, or you just can’t afford it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen usually charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and usually with a minimum charge of $100. This money is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If bail is very large, the bail bondsman might require that they use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

Discharge Procedures

Once you are able to post bail, you will get discharged from jail. Getting discharged takes anywhere from 30 minutes to all day. Or, simply, the quicker bail is posted, the quicker you will be released. Also, it depends on if you’ve got a cash bond or if a magistrate has to decide on how much to set your bail at. For a minor charge, you will get booked and get released without having to post bail. If you have served a sentence in jail and know the date of your release, you should expect to get released between 9am and noon.

How To Turn Yourself In

If the sheriff has a, or if you have to begin your sentence in jail, it is recommended that you follow the rules and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. In the case of an outstanding warrant, report to the jail reception area, and tell an officer that you think they might have an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if there is one, they will take you into custody and begin the intake process. When reporting to serve a sentence, report at the exact time and date that the sentence order states. Be sure that you don’t show up late. Just bring things that are allowed with you, such as a driver’s license or state issued ID, any prescription medication you might take, and the official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates must provide information about each visitor to the jail in advance of the visit. This information will go into a log of approved visitors for the requesting inmate. Every visitor has to provide acceptable photo identification when visiting an inmate. Any visitors showing up late or that is not on the visitation list will not be allowed to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures change often, so it would be wise to double-check the official jail site before you try to go to visitation.

Visiting Hours

Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are with a pre-paid phone card or account, or are collect calls . Phone calls made in jail are a lot more costly than regular phone calls. There is no limit to how often you can use the phone, but inmates should keep in mind that there are a limited number of phones, so all the inmates must share phone time. If you break the rules and are disciplined, phone calls could be reduced or eliminated completely.

Court Information

Get A Lawyer

Even if you’ve been arrested, you need to be aware that you still have rights, one of these is the right to request an attorney. You don’t get to make many phone calls when you get arrested, so make sure to have a friend or family member locate an attorney when you call them. You’re probably asking yourself ‘but do I really need a lawyer’ While you are not required to have one, a criminal attorney can advise you of your rights, help protect your best interests and show you the way through the complicated legal system in Graves County. The sooner you hire a lawyer to represent you and work on your criminal case, the better off you’ll be.

Pre-Sentencing

A pre-sentencing report is put together to include information about the defendant’s background and information about the arrestee’s life, which the magistrate will review and take into account when determining your sentence. Information, details, and character witnesses will be requested from the defendant, his or her family members, and in some cases the victim in the crime. Be sure to remember you can ask to get a copy of this report prior to sentencing, and make sure that you review it for accuracy and completeness, and correct any mistakes.

Sentencing

After being convicted of a crime, you will then get sentenced. There are several different options for sentencing, which include community service, house arrest, and probation, to incarceration in either jail (short term) or prison (long term). Depending on how serious your crime was, you could be taken into custody immediately, or you could get a date that you are supposed to turn yourself into jail to do your time.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of being incarcerated in the Graves County jail is quite unpleasant, soon you will settle into the daily routine. Expect an alarm to wake up at about 6:00AM, and next they’ll do roll call. You will then get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will be required 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 Graves County Restricted Custody 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 Graves County Restricted Custody 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 process for sending money to Graves County Restricted Custody Center inmates can change, so visit the official Graves County Restricted Custody Center 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.
