Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Of course, once you’re locked up, your main thought is about when you get out. After booking, your bail will be decided either through a preset bail schedule or a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this might mean that you will either be released, or you have to stay in jail until your trial.

If you are released from jail you must promise to go to your court date, and you are not allowed to go out of town.

Usually, prisoners at Langlade County Jail will earn early release in exchange for good behavior if they respect the rules and conduct themselves properly while they’re in jail.

If you follow the rules, you might be given work release detail. You will be required to go back to jail each day after work, or you could be allowed to move to a halfway house instead of the jail.

Bail

Bail is money that you have to pay to the court system to be released from jail until your court date. Your bail amount is dictated by the seriousness of your charges. You or someone you know will have to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total amount that was set before you can be released from jail. If you don’t go to your court date, whoever put up your bail money won’t get the bail money back.

Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is

You must call the Langlade County Jail. If know the person’s information, like name, address and date of birth, they’ll let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can find out how much their bail is online.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Posting bail to get out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but in some cases, it’s really easy if you have the money. To start with, you have to find out if their bail is a “Cash Bond Only”. If it is, you can’t use a bondsman. Bail can only be paid by cash – the jail won’t accept a personal check. Once you have paid the bond, the person will be released to your care. If they don’t violate the terms of their bail, you will get this money back.

Bail Bondsman

If the bail amount is too high, or you can’t afford it, you will need to use a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will generally charge you a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and usually have a minimum fee of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and has to be paid in cash. If the bail has been set really high, the bondsman will usually require that they use your personal assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

Discharge Procedures

When you pay your bail, you will be allowed to go home after you get discharged. Getting discharged from jail can take from 10 minutes to hours or even all day long. So, the faster you can post bail, the quicker you will get discharged from jail. Also, it will depend on whether you’ve got a cash bond or if a magistrate still needs to figure out your bail amount. For a minor offense, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served out your jail sentence and know the release date, you should plan to get released that morning.

How To Turn Yourself In

In the event there is a, or if you have to start a jail sentence, you really should do the right thing and turn yourself in. If it is for a warrant, go down to the jail intake area, and tell them that you think they might have a warrant for your arrest. The officer will verify that you have an outstanding arrest warrant, and if they verify that you have one, you will be taken into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report to the jail at the time and date that the sentence order lists. Make sure that you are not late to report. Be sure to only bring things that are allowed when you go to jail, for example your drivers license or even your ID, any prescription medication you might take, as well as the sentencing order from court.

Visitation Procedures

The inmate must give each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail in advance of the visit. This information will go in the visitation log as an Authorized visit. Every visitor will be required to provide proof of identification. Any visitors that arrives for visitation late or that is not an approved visitor will not be able to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures can change, so review the official jail site before you go.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    While the prospect of being incarcerated in the Langlade County jail is something you wish you could avoid, in time you will become accustomed to the routine that is set for you. Inmates get an alarm for wake-up at six in the morning, and then roll call. You will then have breakfast. After breakfast, you will have to work 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 Langlade 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 Langlade 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 funds to someone in jail might change, so it would be best to double check the the Langlade County Jail website when send funds to someone in jail 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.
