Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, once you are in jail, your only thought is about how to get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, your bail will be set either by bail schedule or magistrate. If no bail is set this might mean that you will either be released, 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 won’t be allowed to leave town.

In most cases, inmates will earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and act right while they’re in jail.

If you follow the rules, you may be granted work release. You will either have to return to the jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you could get to move to a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.

Bail

Bail is how much money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you have to pay all depends on the seriousness of your crime. Someone will have to post 10 percent of the total that was determined in order for you to bail out of jail. If you don’t go to your scheduled court date, the person that bailed you out of jail won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

In order to find out how much someon’s bail is, you will have to call the Page County Jail. If know the person’s info, such as name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know the bail amount. Also, you can see the bail amount on the Page County Jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Needing to bail someone out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but in some cases, its simple to do if you have the money. First of all, you need to know if their bail is a Cash Only Bond. If so, you won’t be able to use a bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they can’t take checks. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the person will be discharged. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you’ll get the bail money back.

Bail Bondsman

If bail is set too high, or you can’t afford it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. They will usually have a fee of 10-15% of the bail amount, and sometimes have a minimum fee of $100. This will not be returned to you and must be paid in cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bondsman may use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Jail Policies and Procedures

Intake Procedures / Booking

The jail intake procedure is made up of the following steps:

  • They’ll put you in a holding cell. If there are a lot of arrests, you will have to wait, sometimes for many hours, before you get processed.
  • The first step is that you will answer a number of questions, such as what is your full legal name, your address, date of birth and an emergency contact person.
  • They’ll also ask you about your medical and mental history.
  • You’ll be given an inmate ID.
  • You will get fingerprinted.
  • You will have your mugshot taken.
  • All personal property will be taken from you and will be stored until you are released.
  • They will allow you to use the phone to get in touch with 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 street clothes, but if you are not expected to make bail quickly you will be issued a jail issued jumpsuit.

Have you ever been booked into jail? If you have, you should tell us how it happened. How long did you have to wait in the holding cell? What was you treatment like? Can you share any things that might help others to get through jail intake?

Discharge Procedures

Once bail has been posted, you will be allowed to leave jail. The discharge process can take between 10 minutes to quite a few hours. Or, simply, the quicker bail is posted, the quicker you can get released from jail. Also, how fast you get released can depend on whether you have a cash bond or if the judge must figure out how much to set your bail at. For minor charges, you will be booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served your sentence and are given a date of your release, expect to be released that morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

If there is a, or if you need to start a jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you do the right thing and turn yourself into the authorities. In the case of an outstanding warrant, go down to the jail intake center, and tell an officer that you think there is an outstanding arrest warrant out for you. They will check their system to see if there are any outstanding local, state or federal arrest warrants out for you, and if you do, you will be taken into jail custody. If you are reporting to serve out your sentence, report to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order or court paperwork states. Be very careful that you get don’t get there late, or they may decide to arrest you. Only bring allowed items when you turn yourself in, such as your drivers license or your ID, any prescription medication you might take, and a copy of the sentencing order.

Visitation Procedures

Inmates need to provide each visitor’s full name to the jail in advance of the visit. Your visitor’s information will go into a Visiting log as an approved visitor.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of spending time in the Page County jail is no fun, you will soon become accustomed to the routine that is set for you. You will get an alarm for wake-up each morning at six in the morning, and then you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will eat breakfast. Following breakfast participate in the program that has been assigned to you. 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 Page 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 Page 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 inmates at Page County Jail changes, so you should double check the site before you send money 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.
