Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail

Naturally, if you’re arrested and put in jail, your main thought is when and how to get out. After you’ve gone through the intake process, bail is determined 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, or you must remain in jail until your trial.

If you do bail out you must promise to go to your court date, and until that day you can’t go out of town.

In most cases, inmates at Campbell County Detention Center will be given an early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and act right while locked up.

If you follow the rules, you might be given work release detail. Either you will have to stay jail every day when you’re finished at your job, or you could be allowed to move into a halfway house instead of living at the jail.

Bail

Your bail is the amount of money that you will be required to pay to be released from jail pending trial. The amount of bail that is set all depends on the seriousness of your crime. You will need to post ten percent of the total that was set before you can be released. If you fail to show up for your scheduled court date, that person 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 have to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you’ve got the person’s information, such as name, address and date of birth, they will be able to let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the jail website.

How To Bail Someone Out of Jail

Bailing out of jail is an unpleasant situation, but most of the time, it is very simple to do. First, find out if they have a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If it is, you can’t use the services of a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – the jail will not accept a personal check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the inmate will be released into your care. 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 just can’t afford it, you you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bail bondsmen will usually have a fee of 10-15% of the total bail amount, and sometimes have a minimum of $100. The money you pay to the bail bondsman is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If the bail is extremely high, the bail bondsman will usually request to use your assets as collateral in addition to the fee they charge.

    Life In Jail / What Its Like

    Daily Life

    Everyone knows that spending time in Campbell County Detention Center is something you wish you could avoid, eventually you will get used to the daily routine there. You should expect a wake-up alarm each morning at 6:00 AM, and next you’ll have roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. Following breakfast you will 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 Campbell County Detention Center, 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 Campbell County Detention Center 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 jail inmates might change, so visit the site when you send any money.

    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.
