Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Obviously, once you’re in jail, your only thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through booking, your bail will be decided using the bail schedule or the magistrate will decide it. In cases where no bail is set this might 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 are released from jail you must promise to go to your court date, and until that day you won’t be permitted to leave the area.

Usually, an inmate in the Curry County Jail will earn early release in exchange for good behavior when they don’t break the rules and act right while in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be allowed to participate in work release. You will be required to return to jail every day after work, or you could get to sleep in a halfway house when you are not working.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay in order to be released from jail until your trial. The amount of bail that is set is determined by the crime you’ve been charged with. You or someone you know will have to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total amount that was set so you can get out of jail. If you don’t go to your court date, whoever posted your bail won’t get the bail 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 need to call the jail. If you’ve got the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they will let you know the bail amount. Also, you can find out how much their bail is on the Curry County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but fortunately, its really easy. First, you need to find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you will not be able to use the services of a bondsman. Cash only – the jail will not take a check. Once the cash bond has been paid, the person will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, the bail money you posted will be returned to you.

Bail Bondsman

If their bail has been set too high, of if you can’t pay it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of total bail, and sometimes have a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman will not be returned to you and is typically cash only. If the bail has been set really high, the bail bondsman will in these cases ask to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to their charges.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Just the thought of being incarcerated in Curry County Jail is quite unpleasant, eventually you will settle into the daily routine there. Prisoners get an alarm for wake-up each morning at 6:00 AM, and then roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. Following breakfast participate 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 Curry 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 Curry 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 procedure to send money to someone in jail might change, so be sure to review the the Curry County Jail 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.
