Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you are arrested and put in jail, your only thought is about when and how you will get out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail is decided either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. In cases where no bail is set this can mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you are kept in jail until your court date.

If you do bail out of jail you are required to agree to show up for court, and you can’t travel out of the county.

In most cases, prisoners will be given time off in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and conduct themselves properly while incarcerated.

If you do exhibit good behavior and the jail believes you can be trusted, you might be allowed to do work release. You will have to go back to the jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you might be permitted to live in a halfway house instead of jail.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you have to pay to the courts to get out of jail until you go to court. The amount you have to pay is determined by how serious your crime is. Someone will have to post 10 percent of the total that was set so you are able to be released. If you miss your scheduled court date, whoever paid your bail will not get their 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 have to call the jail or the county courthouse. If know the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll tell you how much their bail is. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Arthur County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to get someone out of jail is no fun, but thankfully, its easy if you have the money. First of all, you have to find out if they have a Cash Only Bond situation. If it is, you won’t be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail won’t take a check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the prisoner will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, of if you can’t pay it, you you should hire a bail bondsman. They generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the bail amount, and sometimes charge a minimum charge of $100. This money is non-refundable and is typically cash only. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman may use your personal assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of being incarcerated in Arthur County Jail is very scary, in time you will get used to the daily routine there. You should expect a wake-up alarm each morning at 6:00am, and next they’ll do roll call. Next, you will eat 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 Arthur County Jail, 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 Arthur County Jail 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 people in jail could change, so you should check the the Arthur County Jail website 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.
