Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Once you’re locked up, your primary thought is about getting out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, bail is determined either by bail schedule or magistrate. If no bail is set this can mean that you will either be free to go until your court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.

If you are released from jail you are required to agree to go to your court date, and until that date you must not leave the county.

In most cases, inmates can earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and act right while in jail.

If you prove to be trustworthy, you may be allowed to do work release. Either you will have to go back to the jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you might get to move into a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay in order to be released from jail until you go to court. The amount you will be required to pay is determined by the seriousness of your charges. Someone will have to pay to the courts ten percent of the total that was set in order to be released from jail. If you don’t go to your court appearance, the person that paid your bail will lose that money.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

To find out how much bail money you will need to bail someone out of jail will need to call the jail or the county courthouse. If know the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they will let you know the bail amount. You can also check their bail amount and status on the Tillamook County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but in some cases, its really easy if you have the money. First, figure out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you will not be able to use the services of a bail bondsman. Take cash only to the jail – the jail won’t take a personal check. Once you have paid the bond, the inmate will be released to your care. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get your money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it, you should look into the services of a bail bondsman. Bondsmen generally charge you a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total bail amount, and usually have a minimum fee of $100. This is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If their bail has been set particularly high, the bail bondsman will usually use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Discharge Procedures

When you finally post bail, you will be allowed to leave jail. Getting discharged from jail can take between 30 minutes to quite a few hours. Or, simply, the faster bail is posted, the faster you will get released. Also, how fast you get released depends on if you have a cash bond or if a magistrate has to figure out how much to set your bail at. For a minor charge, you will simply be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served out your jail sentence and have a discharge date, you should expect to get released in the morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

In the event there is a, or if you must begin your jail sentence, it is highly recommended that you do the right thing and turn yourself in willingly. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go down to the jail intake center, and tell them that you think there is a warrant for your arrest. They will check to see if you have a warrant, and if there is one, you will be taken into custody. When reporting to serve a sentence, report on the date and time that the sentence order states. Be very careful that you don’t show up late. Only bring allowed items when you go, for example your drivers license or ID, any prescription medication you might take, and the copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

In order to have visitors, inmates have to list information about each visitor to the jail before anyone can visit them. This information will be entered in the visitation log as an Authorized visit. All visitors is required to provide identification. Anyone showing up late or any visitors that are not approved to visit will not be allowed to visit the inmate.
The Tillamook County Jail visitation procedures are always changing, so we suggest that you double-check the official Tillamook County Jail jail site before you try to go to visitation.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that being incarcerated in the Tillamook County jail is quite unpleasant, soon you will get accustomed to the daily routine there. Expect a wake-up alarm each morning at 6:00am, and then you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will eat breakfast. After breakfast, you will have 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 Tillamook 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 Tillamook 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 funds to people in jail might change, so be sure to visit the site before you send any funds.

    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.
