Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you are locked up, your main thought is about when and how you will get out. After booking, your bail is set either by bail schedule or magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you are are released you must agree to show up for court, and until then you are not allowed to travel out of the county.

In most cases, a prisoner will be given time off for good behavior if 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 allowed to do work release. You will be required to go back to the jail at the end of the day when you’re finished working, or you might have the chance to sleep in a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Bail is money that you are required to pay to get out of jail until your court date. The amount you will be required to pay is dictated by the seriousness of your crime. You will need to post 10 percent of the total set so you are able to get discharged from jail. If you miss your scheduled court date, that person won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You will need to call the Plymouth County Correctional Facility. If you’ve got the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they will tell you how much their bail is. Also, you can see the bail amount online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but thankfully, its simple to do if you have the money. First, you have to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you won’t be able to use a bail bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – they will not take checks. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the person will get released. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the amount of bail set is large, of if you can’t pay it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually have a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and usually with a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and bondsmen usually only accept cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman might require that they use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond.

  • Also, you will also be asked about your medical and mental history.
  • You will be issued an inmate number.
  • Your fingerprints will be taken.
  • You will have your mugshot taken.
  • Any personal property you have will be taken from you and stored until you get released from jail.
  • You will then be allowed to make a telephone call in order to talk to a member of your family, friend, or bail bondsman.
  • If they expect that you will make bail and be released quickly, you might get to keep wearing your own clothes, if not you you will have to wear a jumpsuit.

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be discharged from jail. The discharge process takes anywhere from 30 minutes to all day long. In simple terms, the faster you can pay your bail, the sooner you will get out of jail. Also, it might depend on if you’ve got a cash bond or if a magistrate needs to figure out your bail amount. For a minor charge, you will simply be booked and get released without having to post bail. When you get to the end of your sentence and are given a discharge date, you should plan to get discharged anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.

How To Turn Yourself In

for your arrest, or if you need to begin your sentence in jail, it is highly recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself in. If you have a warrant, go down to the jail intake center, and tell the intake officer that you think there is an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. A record check will be run, and if you do, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. If it is for a jail sentence, go to the jail at the exact time and date that the sentence order states. Make sure that you are not late to report. Be sure to only bring necessary items with you, for example a driver’s license or even photo ID, prescription medication, and a official sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

To have visitors, you need to list each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail in advance. Your visitor’s names will be put into the log for the inmate. Each visitor has to provide a photo ID when visiting. Any visitors showing up late or that is not an approved visitor will be turned away.
Visitation procedures at Plymouth County Correctional Facility change often, so make sure that you check the jail site before you visit an inmate.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of serving a jail sentence in Plymouth County Correctional Facility is very scary, eventually you will settle into the daily routine there. Expect a wake-up alarm each morning at 6:00AM, and then you’ll have roll call. Next, you will get breakfast. Following breakfast you will be required to work 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 Plymouth County 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 Plymouth County 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 procedure to send money to someone in jail at Plymouth County Correctional Facility could change, so it would be best to review the the Plymouth County Correctional Facility website before you send funds 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.
